Get ready for another Grey’s wedding. The upcoming season 14 finale of Shonda Rhimes’ Grey’s Anatomy will feature a grand wedding, just days before the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle takes place.
Characters Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) are set to marry in the episode airing Thursday, May 17. Entertainment Weekly got the exclusive first look inside the nuptials, which shows the couple and Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) dealing with a dramatic moment at the wedding.
Karev and Wilson’s love story goes something like this: The groom was briefly married to Katherine Heigl’s character Izzie Stevens at the start of the series, though Heigl eventually exited from the show in 2010 after a tumultuous fallout with head honcho Rhimes. Chambers has remained on the show since its inception alongside Pompeo.
Karev eventually found love again with Jo Wilson, who started off as an intern, and he decided to pop the question though she rebuffed his proposal efforts due to a dark secret in her past. It was later revealed that Jo had a turbulent marriage to an abusive husband who eventually died in a separate incident.
The two got engaged and are currently planning their wedding in the ongoing season. Interestingly enough, Luddington is engaged in real life.
“I am so excited for Jo and Alex to finally seal the deal and get married,” she told EW in the announcement. “But in true Jolex form, the wedding will have lots of twists and turns to it.”
