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.

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

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."

The brain is the human body's most mysterious organ. It learns. It changes. It adapts. It tells us what we see, what we hear. It lets us feel love. I think it holds our soul. And no matter how much research we do, no one can really say how all that delicate grey matter inside our skull works. And, when it's hurt, when the human brain is traumatized, well, that's when it gets even more mysterious.
