Grey's Anatomy Just Revealed What Happened to Alex Karev

We didn’t see that coming, however perhaps we must have. 

After weeks of telling us Alex used to be visiting his mom in Iowa after which in spite of everything revealing that he had by no means been in Iowa in any respect, this week’s episode equipped some severe closure for each Alex and any other marvel, long-gone personality from Grey’s Anatomy previous. 

Basically, Alex used to be with Izzie (Katherine Heigl). He came upon that once she simply type of left all the ones years in the past, she were elevating his dual son and daughter by myself and not advised him. She had used the embryos she and Alex had made when she had most cancers, and had twins named Eli and Alexis. 

He additionally already (so kindly?) signed divorce papers and left Jo the whole thing he had, together with his stocks within the clinic, which appears like absolutely the least he might be able to do for his spouse. HIS WIFE. 

We realized all this via quite a lot of letters that Alex wrote to all of the vital other people in his lifestyles: Jo, Meredith, and Bailey. 

He had referred to as her when he used to be calling everybody he knew to assist with Meredith’s trial again within the fall, in his ultimate episode of the sequence. Technically, this night’s episode served as his ultimate episode because it integrated his voice studying the letter in voiceover, however no new photos of Chambers if truth be told seemed. 

“It is nearly impossible to say goodbye to Alex Karev,” showrunner Krista Vernoff mentioned in a observation. “That is as true for me and for the entire writers at Grey’s Anatomy as it’s for the fanatics. We have liked writing Alex. And we now have liked staring at Justin Chambers’ nuanced portrayal of him. For 16 seasons, 16 years, we now have grown up along Alex Karev. We had been annoyed through his barriers and we now have been impressed through his expansion and we now have come to like him deeply and to consider him as one among our absolute best buddies. We will pass over him extraordinarily. And we can all the time be pleased about his affect, on our display, on our hearts, on our fanatics, at the international.” 

Justin Chambers introduced his go out in January, and ABC showed that his ultimate episode aired in November. Ever since, Alex used to be purported to be in Iowa visiting his mom, after which he slowly stopped answering calls and texts from his spouse and coworkers, till Jo realized he used to be by no means in Iowa in any respect. And now we all know the place he if truth be told used to be, and whilst that is precisely what we joked about for the previous two months, we will have by no means guessed we would finally end up right here. And it’ll take a while to procedure.
