“DeLuca’s attempts to confess his feelings to Jo haven’t gone so well for him,” Gianniotti recently told ET. “But personally speaking, I think he jumped the gun a little bit. She’s fresh out of this relationship [with Alex]. I think she just needs a little time to process everything. It’s not necessarily that she doesn’t have interest and feelings for DeLuca, but she needs some space.”
As for DeLuca and Maggie’s (Kelly McCreary) short-lived romance, Gianniotti says that nothing on Grey’s is simple -- and he prefers it that way.
