As a reminder, when we last left Jo, she was recovering from her boyfriend beating her, and in turn, starting to move on with longtime will-they-won’t-they crush Alex Karev. They kissed in a closet in the Season 9 finale — and were spotted kissing on-set this week, too — and it seems like she’s headed for happier days. However, she’s not fully healed yet.
It definitely looks a little better than when we last saw Jo, but that will continue to be a reminder of what happened to her so recently. Hopefully these two episodes will show her moving on to brighter and better times, focusing on work (and maybe a little on Alex), and ultimately showing how strong and resilient she is. Plus, if the super storm is still wreaking havoc, she will have a lot to distract her — including a team of firefighters!
