Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Spoilers: Are Alex Karev And Jo Wilson In Danger?
Is Jo Wilson's Husband (Paul Stadler) coming to Grey's Anatomy Season 14?
Drama is brewing in Grey's Anatomy Season 14, and we couldn't be more terrified. Things have been pretty great for Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) since they got back together in the season premiere and had their "homecoming". But, we haven't heard much from what tore them apart in the first place. Jo's abusive husband, Paul Stadler (Matthew Morrison), made an appearance on Grey's Anatomy last season after Alex tracked him down at a medical conference. However, Alex didn't make any moves, making it clear that Jo was safe for now. But, you better watch out JoLex fans! Showrunner Shonda Rhimes is planting seeds. seeing as Paul was mentioned in last week's episode of Grey's. So, is Paul Stadler coming back in Grey's Anatomy Season 14? And if he does, what does it mean for the future of Alex and Jo?
Is Paul Stadler Coming Back In Grey's Anatomy Season 14?
"It's been a crazy ride since Glee," Morrison said. "I have a big role in 'Grey’s Anatomy' coming up. I’m shooting this fantastic movie in China. I’m doing concerts all over the world. I just started a business called Sherpapa because I’m going to be a new dad."
The thought of it horrifies us to our core. But, Shonda Rhimes isn't one to glide over difficult topics such as abuse, so we're hoping to see Jo come out of this situation on top. We've been waiting for this storyline to be settled since Season 12, after all.
However despite Morrison's claims, Camilla Luddington doesn't seem to think that Paul is coming back to Grey's anytime soon.
I have yet to read a script that has my ex-husband back in it," Luddington told TV Guide in August. "It's definitely a storyline that I hope we explore, because it's so important. But right now, it's [DeLuca] and Alex."
So, what's the truth? Perhaps this means that Paul will show up in the second half of Grey's Anatomy Season 14, after the midseason finale.
Why Would Paul Stadler Return To Grey's Anatomy?
While Paul could have been long forgotten, last week's episode of Grey's Anatomy Season 14 made it clear to us that his presence still looms over Jo. In order to avoid being discovered by her abusive husband, Jo had to take her name off an important article with Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo). Check out the clip below where Jo reveals her secret to Ben Warren (Jason George), who has a secret of his own.
Jo is missing out on career-advancing opportunities to avoid a man. We need to see her kick Paul to the curb (or in prison) once and for all. But, what will bring Paul over to Grey Sloan Memorial? We're not entirely sure. Perhaps Jo's picture will appear in the article after all and that's how Paul will track her down.
