This week’s season 14 finale of Grey’s Anatomy is titled All Of Me, but maybe a better title would be “Here Comes the Bride…and There Goes April and Arizona.” In a sneak peek of photos from this season’s final episode, it appears that Alex and Jo’s wedding – plus the departure of two beloved doctors will – will bring laughter and tears. But, will Jolex actually make it down the aisle?
Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo, teased just a couple of weeks ago that there would be twists and turns when it came to Jo and Alex (Justin Chambers) tying the knot, and now we know why. It turns out, the couple ends up trapped in a shed, and they decide to have a spontaneous sex session on their big day.
“I am so excited for Jo and Alex to finally seal the deal and get married,” Luddington told Entertainment Weekly. “But in true Jolex form, the wedding will have lots of twists and turns to it.”
Fans already knew that April Kepner (Sarah Drew) and Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) would be leaving the show as series regulars at the end of this season. Arizona is moving to New York to be with her daughter Sofia, and her ex-wife Callie, and she will be starting the Robbins-Herman Center for Women’s Health with her former mentor, Dr. Nicole Herman (Geena Davis).
But, we don’t know if Arizona will leave her current love interest, Carina DeLuca (Stefania Spampinato), behind in Seattle, or if she will ask her to join her. After all, she is researching the female orgasm, so her work might fit in well at Arizona’s new clinic.
We also don’t know April’s fate, but it will most likely involve Matthew, her ex-fiancé with whom she has rekindled a romance. In last week’s penultimate episode, April and Matthew were involved in a car accident that almost ended her life. Luckily the doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial were able to save her.
First of all, Jesse knocked this scene completely out of the park. His performance destroyed me. Wow. Secondly, For me, this photo speaks volumes about our partnership. Jesse and I had some very trying stories to tell over the years and there were many moments when we really needed to lean on each other to get through them. And we did. To name a few: Samuel’s death, signing divorce papers, when Harriet was cut out of me (Jesse was on set to do the off camera phone call), when April tells Jackson she needs to move out because it’s just too hard. The scene right here where Jackson prays over April was one of those moments. It was agonizing for me, because I wanted so badly to reach out and offer him support in the scene- to let him lean on me – cuz that’s what we do for each other- but I had to just lie there unconscious letting him do his beautiful work alone. So, after he finished his coverage, I reached out to hug him and our makeup artist @lovveeani caught it on film. Our partnership on this show has been so sweet, so collaborative, so challenging (in the absolute BEST way). We got to tell stories that really matter, that have reached out and provided a safe space for people to love, laugh, mourn and grow. I will be forever grateful to my co-captain for the 9 years of friendship and for the opportunity to tell such beautiful stories together. Thank you, Jesse ❤️❤️❤️. Photocred @lovveeani
The biggest question hanging over the episode, though – if you look through the sneak preview photos – is what is going to make things “not easy,” as Ellen Pompeo put it in an interview last month. Could the caterer be cleaning up blood? And why does everyone look so worried?
Fans will have just have to wait a little bit longer to find out. The season finale of Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursday night on ABC.
