By Jim Donnelly | May 29th, 2019

Heading into its 16th season, Grey's Anatomy follows Meredith Grey and the team of doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial who are faced with life-or-death decisions on a daily basis. They seek comfort from one another, and, at times, more than just friendship. Together they discover that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white. In Season 15's "Silent All These Years," Jo is forced to confront her past as she gives a frightened trauma patient the support she desperately needs to make it through her terrifying ordeal. Below are some highlights from one of the most emotional and inspirational episodes of Grey's Anatomy ever.

Jo and Teddy Help a Sexual Assault Victim: Abby (Khalilah Joi) fears the judgement and double standard after revealing she was sexually assaulted after being out at a bar. Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Teddy (Kim Raver) support her and encourage her to let them gather evidence now so that 'one day, if you want justice... you have everything you need to do that,' says Jo.

Abby Agrees to a Sexual Assault Kit: Jo and Teddy guide Abby through the process.

In Solidarity with Abby: In this moving moment, Jo lines the hospital halls with women for her patient Abby, who is terrified to leave the room for surgery. Abby tearfully shared that all she sees is her attacker's face when she looks at men.
