Are there many "Grey's Anatomy" viewers out there shipping Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) and Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti)? Hope not, 'cause it doesn't look good for them. However, that doesn't necessarily mean things are looking good for Jo and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers). Things just aren't looking good in general after that Season 13 winter finale cliffhanger.
Apparently there's at least one big Jo/DeLuca fan out there, because she asked Entertainment Weekly about them for the site's Spoiler Room roundup:
Does Jo not realize that Andrew has feelings for her on Grey's Anatomy? I kind of 'ship it, to be honest. — Helene
"I really don't think she does!" Camilla Luddington says. "I think she feels in the midst of a tornado, there is so much spinning around her head that she's not picking up on any feelings. I think she's just happy to have a friend. Even if she had a question about it, I think she'd set it aside. That would complicate things and right now she's craving simplicity." In short: Friendzoned!
So DeLuca is in the Friendzone...... No cookie love for you. He helped drunk Jo home, and kept her secrets, but everything after that has apparently been one-sided.
The winter finale ended on quite a cliffhanger, with Alex struggling to decide what to do, mostly based on his feelings for Jo. She finally revealed the truth to him -- that she's married to an abuser, and she changed her name so her husband couldn't find her. But if Alex's assault of DeLuca goes to trial, and Jo has to testify, her truth will come out and her husband could find her.
So that left Alex feeling like he should take the plea deal on the table and go to jail for two years, rather than force Jo to go public and maybe have to leave town to keep hiding from her ex. However, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) was on the phone pushing hard for Alex to go to trial and not take a plea deal, arguing that he still has a great chance of going free and not ruining his career forever.
What will Alex do? We don't know yet, but we do know that we shouldn't expect Jo to start gravitating toward DeLuca anytime soon, since he's not even on her radar.
"Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 returns January 19, 2017.
