‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 12, episode 3 reaction: What was the big Jo – Alex reveal?

Jo -Going into Thursday night’s new episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” ABC promoted relentlessly that there was something huge coming up with Jo and Alex. What did we have instead? Basically a surprising ghost from the past turning up in Izzie.

While we do not expect to see Katherine Heigl turning up anytime soon, Jo discovered some of the frozen embryos, which caused her to wonder whether or not she was the person who he actually wanted to have children with. Was she the second option? He assured that she was not, even though he did not exactly go about this in the best way over the course of the hour.

Also in the episode, there was the further decline of the relationship between April and Jackson. She claims that she was desperate to try to save the marriage in any way that she possibly could, no matter what the consequences were. In this episode, the consequences were seeing Jackson move out of the house after he threatened to have the locks changed when she turned up and pretended as though everything was going to be okay. He is now over with Bailey and Ben.

In other words, welcome to the show where couples fight a lot! There were some more pleasant storylines to be fair, but the primary reason we were planning to write a quick reaction to this episode was for the Jo / Alex story, and while we are glad that Izzie is being at least addressed, we thought the show was going in a different direction than they ultimately decided to here.
