Season 13 will pick up right where the May finale left off — which will be a pretty neat trick, seeing as newlywed Amelia’s portrayer is now pregnant.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 13: ‘Jolex’ in Jeopardy — What Happens Next?
The ABC drama will have at least another episode to start playing hide-the-bump (as it did fort much of Season 12 with Jessica Capshaw), since Owen and Amelia “are not in a ton of the premiere,” Scorsone shares, but instead are (getting) busy off-screen with their wedding night.
“Most of the drama that can be seen on network television is happening elsewhere,” she says with a laugh.
Speaking of Season 13 drama, Scorsone was able to tease “a huge storyline focusing on Alex and Jo,” whose relationship got rocked in the finale by the heart-crushing reveal that Jo has been living under a false identity, to elude an abusive husband.
“It got messy for them,” Scorsone says, “but that’s going to become a really multi-layered story that has social and personal overtones…. It’s a real opportunity to explore some important issues.”
Season 13 premieres Thursday, Sept. 22 at 8/7c, now leading into the freshman drama
I can’t wait until they give up hiding it near the end just like they did with JCap because it was fun. Congratulations to them!
okay well the only remaining couple I care about is Jackson & April so if they aren’t there, I hope there’s atleast interesting medical stuff going on in the premiere.
That being said, Jo’s story (regardless of of how it affects Jolex per say) is important & I hope they do it justice.
Alex and Jo are long overdue for their own storyline. I hope it will be worth the wait.
I missed most of Grey’s last season so I missed out on a lot but hasn’t Jo already been in an abusive relationship once? I think it was several seasons ago … and didn’t Alex beat up the guy? I think the guy worked at the hospital. Maybe I’m remembering it all wrong, but couldn’t we giver her something else since it’s already been done before?
Yeah, but this storyline is needed because she alluded to a previous assault or abusive relationship to Alex during the storyline you mentioned. She said something along the lines of “The last time someone touched me like that…” but it was never talked about again. So the writers already planted the seed years ago – they’re just following up now.
Ok, that makes sense. Thank you! It’s just been awhile and I had forgotten how it went down. I’m going to have to get caught up on Netflix so I can be ready for the next season.
Jo’s story is so important and I hope they do it justice. She gets so much unnecessary hate just because the writers ignored her so long, and Jo has a lot of potential to be such an interesting character. I like her a lot and can’t wait for the viewers to see just how much she had to overcome. I hope the writers will focus more on her than on Alex since this is her story. He will be hurt but I think he’ll be able to understand so well since he watched his dad beat up his mom all his childhood and ended up almost killing him.
I’ve seen very ugly comments since the finale about how Jo probably deserved to be beaten up, about how people only focused on the fact that she couldn’t tell Alex about her marriage, etct. But honestly? The writers have showed us a Jo who is crazy in love with Alex, who would do anything for him and who’s always been there when he needed her. So many times she put him first and everyone should know by now that if she didn’t tell him about her marriage, it wasn’t because she didn’t love or trust him enough. And victim-shaming is just disgusting. I think that if Jo felt like she could’ve told Alex she would’ve. After all she kept this secret for four years and felt like she couldn’t even tell him when he walked out and she lost him. For the love of God, don’t make everything about Alex, Jo is a female who probably didn’t have a happy minute in her life since her mother abandones her as a baby. She’s probably the only character who can hold a candle to all the horrible things Meredith went through (which is why I thino they’d become good friends if the writers let them). I experienced some physical abuse myself and can’t even imagine how it feels like to live in constant fear. The reason she probably never told anyone was because she was advised to never tell anyone when she changed her identity. It’s really not all that hard to imagine how desperate she must’ve been. Camilla mentioned that Jo’s husband is extremely dangerous and I think by not telling Alex she in some way protected him. If he knew he wouldn’t let it go and go after the guy, and there has to be a reason Jo was too scared to file for divorce and for him to find her. So for God’s sake, show a little compassion, a lot of women go through what Jo had to go through and usually they aren’t foster kids who had to live in their car because God knows what happened to them in those homes.
That being said, I remember a TVLine article from last year where Shonda had promised Alex/Jo fans a real focus on them in season 12, only to ignore them worse than ever. After two years of nothing but Alex with his friends and Jo with Stephanie I hope Shonda knows that we Alex/Jo fans have been waiting forever and deserve some focus on them as a couple. They could be so amazing but when a couple gets nothing people don’t find them interesting and criticize them nonstop like it’s been the case with these two. There’s so much love and understanding and trust between them and I hope that even though things will be messy the writers will be able to shed light onto it.
