Over the years, the relationships of Grey’s Anatomy have made us laugh, cry, cheer, and cry some more! Though last season brought a lot of heartbreak, Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) stuck it out. We could not be happier! Through thick and thin, Alex and Jo have proved to us that they’re made for each other. With similar pasts, the two have undeniable chemistry and compatibility. Take a trip back in time and watch some of their greatest moments!
8) The Conversation That Started It All
Alex had completely stereotyped ideas about who Jo really was, and she made it very clear that he was wrong. Suddenly Alex realized that Jo was much more relatable than he thought. He was hooked -- and so were we!
7) The First Date
From the beginning, it’s obvious that these two were so compatible! In one of their earliest (and cutest) banters, Jo and Alex playfully argued over who had the most difficult childhood. Jo let her practical joking skills show and Alex totally fell for it! We think he fell for Jo as well.
6) The One with the Tree
Alex and Jo are not perfect. Individually, they’ve been through a lot. But even when life gets hard (or when a tree breaks through the window!), these two will do anything for each other!
5) The Pre-Proposal
After dealing with a lot of emotions about his estranged father, Alex arrived at April Kepner’s wedding with one thing in mind: his commitment to Jo. In this short scene, we see Alex deeply looking forward to having a family with Jo someday.
4) The (Fake) Break Up
It’s easy to see that Alex and Jo make a great team. When new hospital rules “threatened” their relationship, the two showed off their theater skills and pretended to break up in front of everyone. For a second, we believed it! But then we remembered that this couple was unstoppable.
3) Some Words of Advice
When Alex was stressing over whether or not to take a new job offer, Jo supported him in the best way possible! She kindly provided him with positive talking points and encouragement. We love the way that she lifts his spirits!
2) A Promised Future
This past season brought changes that forced Alex to focus on his friendships. His relationship with friends like Meredith Grey and Arizona Robbins worried Jo, but Alex stood firm in his love for her. “I’m not going anywhere except home with you,” he promised. Swoon!
1) Their New Home
Jo is finally ready for love and commitment! In the Season 11 finale, she took everything she had to get an apartment for Alex and her to share. Then she finally declared her love for him (as if it wasn’t obvious). After everything, they deserve a home that’s just for the two of them!
Can't wait to see what's next for this sweet couple? Good news! The Season 12 Premiere of Grey's Anatomy is THURSDAY SEPT 24 8|7c.
