Wedding bells will soon be ringing at Grey Sloan!
EW can exclusively reveal that Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Alex (Justin Chambers) will be getting married in the season 14 finale of Grey’s Anatomy.
Slated to air Thursday, May 17, the finale is gearing up to be a big event — which, in the world of Shondaland, means things will certainly go awry.
“I am so excited for Jo and Alex to finally seal the deal and get married,” Luddington tells EW. “But in true Jolex form, the wedding will have lots of twists and turns to it.” See?
EW’s exclusive photo from the wedding definitely seems to speak to impending disaster.
It’s been a long road to the altar for these two. After his failed marriage to Izzie (Katherine Heigl) in the early years of Grey’s, Alex and Jo started dating in season 9. But the couple hit a major roadblock at the end of season 12 when Jo rebuffed Alex’s proposal, afraid to reveal her name wasn’t actually Jo Wilson — it was Brooke Stadler — and she was still married to an abusive man from whom she ran.
After Alex nearly landed in jail back in season 13 — long story involving him beating up DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), whom he believed was hooking up with Jo — and Jo’s estranged ex Paul (Matthew Morrison) ended up dead in season 14, Jo ultimately proposed to Alex earlier this year.
The ABC medical drama will also close out the season with emotional farewells to longtime series regulars Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew. Geena Davis will be reprising her role as Dr. Nicole Herman, who returns to discuss an exciting opportunity with Arizona, seemingly signaling how Arizona will exit.
Details on Drew’s departure are being kept under wraps, but the logline for the penultimate episode, in which Davis also returns, does tease that one of Grey Sloan Memorial’s own will be seriously injured, prompting the team to reflect on what is truly important to them. Could their patient end up being Drew’s character April? We’ll find out when the penultimate hour airs on May 10.
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
