"We're going to see some real interesting growth from Alex in [Season 9, Episode 23: "Readiness Is All]," showrunner Shonda Rhimes hinted to TV Guide. "He's going to discover some stuff about himself and we're going to discover some stuff about Jo."

At the beginning of the season, Shonda Rhimes said her goal was to have Alex find his "person" this year. For a while, it looked like Jo was custom made for that role, but Camilla Luddington recently hinted that things might not turn out the way viewers expect. Apparently, Shonda agrees.

"Maybe she's his person, maybe not," Shonda teased. "That remains to be seen."
