Why Jo and Link’s Teased Happy Ending Is Perfect

The two shared one of the healthiest friendships on the ABC show, but the future may hold a potential romantic relationship for them.

Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) and Atticus “Link” Lincoln (Chris Carmack) share one of the best friendships of the last seasons of Grey’s Anatomy have produced, but the show may have hinted at something more between them with the new Season 18 Episode 7 trailer. When Link started at Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital in Season 15 and had met Jo by chance, their reunion was as surprising as it was joyful. Over the past three seasons, viewers have seen Jo and Link be there for each other without hesitation, through thick and thin.

When Jo returned home devastated after meeting her biological mother, it was Link who knew how to support her. He didn’t try to make her feel better, and he didn’t try to make her do things; he was right there, with her at her house and at Alex’s, doing her laundry and being there for her. When Link and Amelia broke up as he wanted to marry her when she didn’t, he went to stay with Jo, with the two taking care of their respective children, Scout and Luna.

Their deep friendship has been one of the happiest things in recent seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, and in the past there were rumors that they could have become an object. At the time, Jo had just been left by Alex and was single, while Link had issues with Amelia as she told him their baby might not be his. Amelia and Link’s relationship then continued, but with her now over, and with Grey’s Anatomy season 18, episode 7 trailer showing Link revealing to Jo that he has a crush on her, things could turn out differently, leading to their perfect ending.

Grays Anatomy Jo and Link romance

A potential romance between the two would make sense, not only for how important they’ve always been to each other, but also because they both seem to really want to start a family. Jo and Link share a similar journey to becoming parents: they were against it at first, terrified of everything that could have gone wrong. After talking about it with their partners at the time, they got used to the idea and when they met their newborns, they realized how much they loved them and would have been there for them.

Jo and Link were ready to start a family with their partners, but Amelia leaving Link and Alex choosing her family with Izzie over Jo, at the start of Grey’s Anatomy season 18, they were both left abruptly to face the reality that they couldn’t share this part of life with their chosen partners. Both have struggled with the struggles of being single working parents and have a lot on their plate right now. Nonetheless, Jo and Link’s potential romantic relationship would build on the already deep bond they share and could certainly be the only relationship that will end up working out for both of them with their happily ever after.
