They got hitched … again!
Last season, the duo realized they never mailed in their signed a marriage license (after their fairy boat wedding in season 14), and it had expired. Then going through a difficult time, Jo gave Alex “an out” as she signed herself into a psychiatric facility.
But Alex wasn’t having it and proposed again after she finished her month-long stint at the facility.
After receiving funding for his hospital Pac-North, Alex told Jo, “We should do something to celebrate. What time does the courthouse close?”
As the two stood in front of a judge in full costume (Alex dressed as a vampire and Jo dressed as a bloody vampire’s wife), Jo had a little trick up her sleeve.
While saying her vows, Jo said, “For richer or pregnant. I’m pregnant.”
After a shocked Alex began to speak, she said, “I scared you!”
“You’re not pregnant,” he asked.
“No,” she said. “My God you should’ve seen your face!”
Alex’s second proposal couldn’t have been more emotional and romantic.
“I don’t want an out, you hear me,” he told Jo after her 30 days in in-patient therapy were over. “You offered me an out. You were right. I was scared, so I thought about it and what I know for sure now is I’m a better man with you. I want to be your husband. I want you to be my wife.”
Dressed in a black suit and tie, Alex got down on one knee and said, “I love you. Marry me again, please.”
If you’re thinking Alex and Jo’s situation — referring to each other as husband and wife but not actually being legally married — sounds oddly familiar, you’re right.
In season 5, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) wrote their vows on a post-it, making them husband and wife — in their eyes, at least. It wasn’t until season 8 that they were legally wed at the courthouse in order to adopt their daughter, Zola.
