Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 22 was a mish-mash of different storylines, and it felt like we were being thrown little bones here in preparation for something bigger.
Jo was back at work, but she showed up drunk, and it was eerily reminiscent to April's downward spiral during Grey's Anatomy Season 14.
She doesn't look well, and Alex is concerned about her. He abandoned his denial and is now in a state of genuine fear for Jo but also for the possibility of Jo leaving him.
The guy has a long history of women abandoning him, and he loves Jo with everything in him, so his anguish in those moments when he begged her to communicate with him was heartwrenching.
