'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16 Finale: Jo and Hayes could end up with each other in a romance waiting to happen
The show seems to be hinting at a possible Jo and Hayes romance in the next season
'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16 broke or rather battered our hearts brutally when Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) upped and left his wife Jo (Camilla Luddington) for a life with his former love Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl), and their children.
After the first few tears, Jo resolved to keep a determined and strong face, though it's clear that some wounds are never going to heal. Alex had promised to love and be with her for the rest of their lives, and she deserved better.
Jo has suffered enough and more traumatic experiences already, from having an abusive husband to going to rehab after finding out devastating truths about her birth.
Jo has always been upbeat and cheery, sometimes relentlessly so. Fans initially thought that the showrunners were pointing her in the direction of Link (Chris Carmack). Thankfully that did not happen as Link and Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) reconciled their differences.
However, Jo and the handsome new doctor Cormac Hayes (Richard Flood) seem to be having passing, yet meaningful conversations. Hayes/ McIrish/McWidow was initially sent for Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), who is too busy trying to sort out Andrew DeLuca's problems at the moment.
If you think of it, Jo and Hayes would make a good couple. Hayes has already suffered much trauma in his past as he lost his ex-wife. Jo has been through a windmill as well, and as we know, nothing binds two people together more than misery.
Plus, they actually do look a little cute together. If the Teddy-Owen-Tom mess can be sidelined for a while, let's focus a little more on Jo and Hayes? And going by 'Grey's' history, such interactions are never innocent. There's always a meaning behind it.
Fans have mixed opinions about this pairing. Some are sure that they are definitely going to get together in the next season. "Ok, but is it me or is it obvious that Hayes and Jo are gonna get together???" wrote a fan.
"What if Hayes and Jo start dating?" another tweeted. Others have called their interactions "pointless". Well, let's see if that storyline develops. It would be a fun watch, as Jo definitely deserves some happiness.
