In the beginning of the first series, Meredith and Billy appeared to be close friends, quite possibly due to the amount of time they spent with each other at work, as they were often sent out together to follow up leads. However, it soon became clear over the course of the season that Meredith's feelings for him ran deeper than platonic affection, and that she had taken a romantic interest in him.

He on the other hand appeared to be clueless towards her feelings, hardly picking up on any of her hints, much to her sadness.

This is especially clear in The Mystery of The Sunken Sailor (Episode), when she calls repeatedly to check up on him - under the guise of relaying information - as he is on a stakeout with NCIS agent Jennifer Barrington, who he has taken a romantic interest in.

Her feelings are also quite apparent later in the same episode at Laura's birthday party, when she sits next to him while he's watching a basketball game on the TV. She references the case they just finished working on, saying that it was ironic that a woman had many different lovers from afar, even though the person who really cared for her was right in front of her the whole time. She repeats the last bit again with more emphasis, but he is too involved with the TV to really pay attention, looking at her distractedly for a a moment to agree that it was ironic, before turning away again, much to her dissapointment.

However, all of this comes to a head in the series finale, The Mystery of the Corner Store Crossfire (Episode). Early in the episode she makes yet another unsucessful attempt to show how much she cares for Billy, after Jake is shot and in hospital, and she realizes just how easy it is to lose someone doing the job they do. Later on they are in the hospital with Frankie and Max, waiting on news of Jake's condition. Eventually they get the news that he's alright, and on what appears to be complete impulse, Meredith turns to Billy and grabs him, pulling him in to a kiss. After a few seconds she pulls away, telling him to 'deal with it', before dashing off, leaving a very confused looking Billy behind her.

It is unclear at the end of Season One whether they are going to embark on a relationship or not after she displayed her feelings for him, however at the end of the season finale Billy does ask Laura what her view on workplace romance is, implying they are likely going to.
