After Maggie Doyle's death, PJ had moved on and begun sleeping with Jo Parrish. PJ told Jo he did not love her at the end of season 9. But when a hostage situation involving Jo occurred, PJ proclaimed his love for her in season 10 in the episode "Thicker than water" They became engaged in season 11, however, when a case involving Maggie's policing came up, PJ started to have nightmares about Maggie and started to obsess over the case to protect her name. While talking someone out of suicide[clarification needed], he told her that you can only have one great love but it doesn't normally work out; he then went on to say Maggie was his great love. Jo overheard this conversation and broke the engagement. Shortly after, Jo was killed in the bombing of the Mount Thomas station.
