A few episodes into season 16 of Grey's Anatomy, so much has changed. 

People have new jobs at other hospitals, people are going to jail, people are in the midst of one of the ugliest breakups the show has ever had, and we're just here to help you keep track of all of it. 

Currently on the ABC drama, Meredith and DeLuca are dealing with Mer's continued legal troubles (and that article she accidentally published), which isn't easy on either of them, while Jo is still recovering from last season's trauma and processing what she learned in therapy, while taking on a new job as an attending, alongside Alex's new job as chief at another hospital.

Teddy had a baby, Amelia and Bailey are both having babies, and nearly every word out of Maggie's mouth is about how much she hates Jackson. 

We've got updates on all the current couples and couples from last season below, so strap in and join us on a journey through the love lives of Grey's Anatomy's current characters. 

Meredith and Andrew

Status: Split

Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) aren't together right now, but Mer was last seen telling Andrew she still loved him as she helped him through a mental health breakdown, even if he currently doesn't love her. We refuse to give up hope for these two. 

Bailey and Ben

Status: Married

Ben (Jason George) might be on a different show, the spinoff Station 19, but not only are these two still happily together, and even weathered a devastating miscarriage together before adopting a teenage patient. 

Alex and Jo

Status: Divorced

All we have to say is "Welp." 

Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo (Camilla Luddington) were happily married for a time and even made it through Jo's breakdown over learning she was the product of rape, despite Jo giving Alex an easy out. Instead of taking it then, he decided to suddenly leave and went back to Izzie (Katherine Heigl) after learning she had two of his kids thanks to the eggs they had fertilized back when she had cancer. So now Jo is single and hopefully ready to find someone even better to spend her life with.

Amelia and Link

Status: Together

Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) and Link (Chris Carmack) hooked up at a conference once and now they've got a baby together! There was a rough patch for a second there while Amelia figured out who the father actually was, but now they seem more solid than ever. 

Owen and Teddy

Status: Engaged...for now.

What do we even say about these two? Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Teddy (Kim Raver) were happy and they had a baby together and they were definitely going to get married, but then Teddy got all in her head about Amelia thinking her baby could be Owen's (a storyline we have yet to forgive the Grey's writers for) and cheated on Owen with Tom Koracick (Greg Germann). Owen now knows about the cheating thanks to a very NSFW voicemail and we're honestly getting very tired. 

Richard and Catherine

Status: Separated

Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Catherine (Debbie Allen)'s marriage fell fully apart last season. She was by his side when he got sick and he even hallucinated the two of them rekindling things, but then rejected her when the hallucinations wore off. Things are not looking great for this pair. 

Nico and Schmitt

Status: Split

Nico (Alex Landi) and Schmitt (Jake Borelli) had their ups and downs, and currently they're in a real down. Currently Nico is also not being very kind and it's a real bummer. 

Teddy and Tom

Status: Sleeping together

We thought Teddy and Tom were over, but nope! They've continued to sleep together, and Tom's in love with her and wants her to fully choose him instead of marrying Owen. It's a true mess that just keeps getting messier. 

Maggie and Winston

Status: Dating

Maggie (Kelly McCreary) reunited with her old colleague Dr. Winston (Anthony Hill) at a medical conference last season, and the two really, really hit it off, spending a magical couple of days together before having to part due to a medical emergency. But now Hill is joining Grey's full time, and finally Maggie might be getting the relationship she has always deserved. They're currently doing the long distance thing. 

Andy and Robert

Status: Married but separated 

Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz) and Robert (Boris Kodjoe) quickly and suddenly got married in season three before Andy's dad died, but they weren't prepared for what comes next. Robert is thinking his wife will be there to support him through surgery recovery and his painkiller addiction, while she just learned (Spoiler Alert!) that her mom is secretly still alive. They decided to separate temporarily so they could each work through their issues, but as far as separations go, it seems to be a fairly loving one.

Maya and Carina

Status: Together

Carina (Stefania Spampinato) was ready to say goodbye to Maya (Danielle Savre), but in the season three finale of Station 19, Maya professed her love. Now, Carina's moving to Station 19 full-time! 

Jackson and Vic

Status: Split? 

Jackson (Jesse Williams) moved on fairly quickly from Maggie (Kelly McCreary) with Vic (Barrett Doss), but that relationship now appears to be over too. Vic sorta kinda moved into Jackson's apartment without really telling him, and it turns out he didn't like that, even though she was basically homeless at the time.

Travis and Emmett

Status: Split

Travis (Jay Hayden) actually took a step in the most mature direction by breaking things off with Emmett (Lachlan Buchanan), since Emmett is newly out and Travis also just doesn't love him. Hopefully Travis is on the path to happiness and a real relationship! 

Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
