Alex Karev’s mysterious absence will lastly be defined through the March 5 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. And if it’s something just like the preview teases, you’re going to wish plenty of tissues.
Ever since Justin Chambers revealed he was leaving Grey’s Anatomy late final yr, followers have been questioning how the writers would explains Alex Karev’s absence and eventual exit. And it now seems to be like we’re lastly going to get that reply through the March 5 episode of the collection. Following this week’s episode, wherein Jo (Camilla Luddington) revealed Alex “left” her, an emotional “goodbye” video teased what is going to seemingly be a really emotional hour of tv.
In the 30-second teaser, flashbacks of Alex’s 16-season journey are proven as A Great Big World‘s “Say Something” performs within the background. The mixture of the 2 is a surefire technique to carry us, not to mention anybody, to tears. But sadly, not a lot else is revealed. However, plenty of the flashback scenes embrace characters crying, so we worry Alex’s exit will probably be one which looks like a extreme punch to the intestine. But then once more, we’d be unhappy about any potential consequence, except Alex reunited with Izzie (Katherine Heigl) after studying she secretly fertilized one in all their frozen embryos. We can dream, proper?
After saying his exit, and filming his remaining episode (which aired in November), Justin informed our sister website, TVLine, that he’s seeking to to “diversify” his “acting roles and career choices”. He added, “As I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time.”
New episodes of Grey’s Anatomy air Thursdays at 9pm on ABC. Alex’s goodbye will probably be proven subsequent week, March 5.
