Link would have been under the impression that Jo was getting what she wanted out of the arrangement while, in reality, she is secretly hoping it evolves into something more.
Joshua: Absolutely, and I think her decision not to talk to Link about her feelings and end her FWB agreement speaks to Jo’s work in therapy.
By not telling Link about her feelings, she’s giving herself a chance to process them and preventing a possible rift in their friendship.
By ending the sex, she’s avoiding adding messy, complicated feelings to the mix and preventing a potential rift in their friendship
Also, we know my feelings about the need to pair Jo off right away. With how the story is playing out now, I appreciate the tension between Jo and Amelia (they rarely get screen time together, and I think they’re both powerful actors). I think Camilla Luddington gets something more seniorfriendfinder profile search interesting to play.
Jasmin: I think so too. He’s not into her the way she’s into him. His reaction was so cold and flippant. Jo deserves someone who’s on the same page as her 100%.
I also think Jo needs to come clean about her feelings so she and Link can figure out where they go from here. I also enjoyed the storyline about Jo, Amelia, and Carina working together.
Meaghan: It was fantastic that they addressed endometriosis! It isn’t always quite understood unless you have direct experience with it or work in the medical field. Even looking at this particular example, the patient had been to the hospital multiple times and received an incorrect diagnosis and incorrect treatment.
I did like them addressing weight bias too, but as someone who also watches The Resident, which just addressed it, it didn’t have the same impact. I hate when all the medical shows address the same issues simultaneously. It’s like when two movies come out in the same year that are carbon copies of each other (i.e., No Strings Attached and Friends With Benefits); it just feels like overkill.
Joshua: As someone who identifies as male, I have to admit that I didn’t realize the show was addressing the topic of endometriosis but ultimately, I’m glad they did. I know a lot of women in my life who suffer from endometriosis and the battles they went through just to get it diagnosed.
I cheered when Perez got his dig in about taking the patient to MRI because walking will help him build up, and Perez didn’t back down from making his point to Link in the OB.
She didn’t get put on birth control until she found a female doctor who would listen to her thoughts and concerns and was willing to work with her instead of telling her what she needed to do. These issues tend to affect women more than men, which is not a surprise.
The medical community is biased toward cishet white men, so the more that shows like Grey’s Anatomy highlight medical issues that any derivation from cishet white men go through, the better.
As for the weight bias in medicine, I loved how they handled it, even though I don’t understand why they’re turning Link into kind of a dick lately
Jasmin: Endometriosis, yes, because I thought they handled it well. Weight bias, no, because they handled it very poorly, in my opinion.
There aren’t as many treatment options available for endometriosis as there should be because it is not something that men experience. I personally know two different women who both developed endometriosis, one in her teens and one in their twenties, and their experiences were and are awful.
