SPOILERS for Gray's Anatomy Season 14 Final Forward. It's never a season finale of Gray's Anatomy without any surprises – we knew that Jo and Alex would get married (which they did but not without any bumps) but what we did I know not that you would come into one of her highest choices. The problem? It is on the other side of the country in Massachusetts. Oops. Is Alex and Jo back for season 15 of Gray's Anatomy ?
Of course, there will be a season 15 of Gray's Anatomy – according to Entertainment Weekly it will now be bound with ER as the longest running medical drama ever on television. A press release from ABC decided that the following players will return to Season 1
Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Gray, Justin Chambers, Alex Karev, Chandra Wilson, Miranda Bailey, James Pickens Jr. like Richard Webber, Kevin McKidd as Owen Hunt, Jesse Williams as Jackson Avery, Caterina Scorsone like Amelia Shepherd, Camilla Luddington as Jo Wilson, Kelly McCreary like Maggie Pierce and Giacomo Gianniotti as Andrew DeLuca.
As you can see, Alex and Jo are both included in the list, like Owen and Amelia (unfortunately, and I will not over this until they're gone, so sue me) so that Alex and Jo will come back to the next season!
However, that does not mean they will be in Seattle. Jo got his first choice at Mass Gen, but Alex still works in Seattle. It's as if Derek started working in Washington, D.C. For President of the United States and Meredith was still in Seattle. They basically did only a shared marriage case for a while, although it put a lot of strain on Meredith and Derek's relationship. But I think that Jo and Alex could survive something like that in Boston and he was in Seattle. Or maybe Alex follows Jo to Boston and they lay the foundation for a spinoff.
Meredith and Derek could not survive the distance, but they still had problems in their relationship with who would focus on their career. Remember, Meredith is the sun, and Derek would not always let her shine the brightest. But Alex and Jo do not really have these problems. He supports her unconditionally, and now they are husband and wife. Hooray!
Frankly, I'm just glad that Alex and Jo did it down the hallway, and it's Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo. She told Entertainment Weekly "I can not believe we've actually done it! Just because they've gone through so much. We were excited to finally shoot these scenes. Then it just happens that – like me told you – there are many twists and turns to it. It's a really fun story for them. We laughed a lot about shooting it. "
Well, that was funny because Jo and Alex had a quickie before the wedding and then locked in a toolbox that contained a dead body in it. (A skeleton, really). Jo and Alex need a bit of life – it has been all assaults and killing ex-husband recently. Let's bring these people a little joy.
And let's hope that Jo and Alex do not go too far from Gray's Anatomy s path. Season 14 said goodbye to Jessica Capshaw (aka Arizona Robbins) and Sarah Drew (aka April Kepner), two characters that were the emotional center of the show. Gray's Anatomy will need a new moral compass, and how wonderful would it be if the former handsome Alex was the one who filled his shoes? No matter what happens and how do we see Jo and Alex next year on Gray's Anatomy – the press release the gods say.
