Thankfully, it sounds like there is a glimmer of hope for one couple during the upcoming sixteenth season, at least according to showrunner Krista Vernoff. 

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you know that Alex Karev and Jo Wilson's relationship combusted during Grey's Anatomy Season 15

Jo's search for her mother didn't give her the answers she was expecting. In her travels, she learned that she was conceived by rape. 

Jo struggled to cope in the aftermath, and she shut her husband, Alex, out of her life. Thankfully, Jo did seek help on Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 25.

Krista Vernoff has now revealed that there could be a reunion on the cards for Grey's Anatomy Season 16. 

"They were pretty great together," she said in an interview with TV Line.

"And then Jo suffered a very real trauma in discovering her birth story and experiencing the complexity of that rejection by her mother." 

"It's impossible to be mad at the mother [since she was a victim of rape], so Jo got trapped in a really painful mental spiral. She needs treatment to come back to herself," she continued.

"I hope therapy brings her back to herself and Alex."

It would be great if JoLex managed to move on, but this is not something they're going to be able to brush under the rug. 

Jo was hurting after her encounter with her mother, and she needs time to heal.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
