One thing every doctor at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital grapples with at some point on “Grey’s Anatomy” is deciding their specialty. There have been doctors who come in knowing exactly what they want, like Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), and doctors who change their minds several times — we’re looking at you, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).
It sounds like in Season 15, it will be Jo Wilson’s (Camilla Luddignton) turn to find her specialty.
“There are actually some decisions that will get made in the two-hour premiere,” Luddington recently told TheWrap of Jo’s upcoming career moves. “One of the things that does happen on the honeymoon is that Jo becomes inspired by what she believes could be a new medical innovation, and she decides that she wants to work on it with Meredith. And she ends up having to go back to Seattle and try and pitch the idea and it sort of segues into inspiring what she wants to do as a specialty. So you see in the two-hour premiere what direction she’s doing in, but then the question of Boston is still hanging in the air.”
Fans will remember Jo debating whether or not to move from Seattle to Boston in the Season 14 finale. Jo was admitted into a fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital, but Meredith — in an effort to keep Jo from moving across the country with Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) — offers her a job at Grey Sloan.
The beginning of Season 15 will see Jo and Alex on their honeymoon… but it might not be all smooth sailing. The log line for the first hour, titled “With a Wonder and a Wild Desire,” says “Jo and Alex’s honeymoon doesn’t go exactly as planned.”
“There’s no massive disaster that happens, I’ll let you know that. But I think it’s just that it’s not as romantic as initially intended,” Luddington teased.
“Grey’s Anatomy” Season 15 premieres Sept. 27 on ABC.
