Alex to Continue Mourning Izzie on Grey's Anatomy

by at . Comments

Katherine Heigl is gone from Grey's Anatomy, but not forgotten.

This is particularly true for her co-star and on-screen husband.

"I miss her all the time," Justin Chambers told E! at the Maui Film Festival. "Katherine's such a great actor. She's so fun to work off of. I really miss working with her."

We've seen the last of their on-screen romance ... but we haven't heard the last of it. As we know, Alex called out for Izzie when he was shot in the Season Six finale.

"I think that's a couple on TV that people will always remember," he said. "There's not much Alex without her. I think he'll be mourning Izzie for the next two seasons."

Katherine Heigl's exit from Grey's Anatomy was an ongoing saga.

Chambers also defended his friend, who was originally due to return in the second half of this past season but ultimately did not, against her many critics in the press.

"She admits that she has a mouth on her, but she's got a heart that's much bigger than her mouth," he said. "It's unfair because I think people have taken her the wrong way."

"She's actually a good person. She's very funny and very kind."

Do you miss Izzie? Should the show continue to explore Alex's feeling for her next season, or have him make a clean break emotionally? Discuss.

    everyone needs to look at the interview of katherine h on the johnathon ross show where she CLEARLY states what exactly happened. and @jr saying she is selfish for havin a baby is probably the most backward stupid thing i have ever ever heard! If you love justin chambers so much would u not take his word that she is a gud person? none of us know her so i dont think its fair to judge. Im not even a big fan of KH but i loved izzie and alex together would love to see them reunited, the sooner Izzie returns....the better!!

    This is another example of just the mention of Katherine Heigle's name makes my head spin. Not only did she leave in a very unprofessional manner, telling them that she would come back from maternity leave and then doesn't show, but she was not thinking of the producers, the fans and her castmates, especially Justin. He worked for several seasons with a storyline with KH and it didn't matter to her that she left him high and dry. She was only thinking of herself. He's a gentleman and says how he misses working with her but she did not do the same for him. She is selfish and self-absorbed. I hope his storyline moves on from her and the mention of Izzie Stevens is in the past. He's a good actor and deserves a costar that appreciates him and has his back too.

    Izzie must get back to the show. You cant break the bond, the soul of the show (Mer, Yang, Alex, George, Izzie ) they started off together, they should have ended together. Izzıe has won our hearts through out the series. And we can feel her absence. Alex & Izzie were loved as much as Mer & Der. So please get her back to the show

    Maybe Alex can to the Izzie/Danny masturbation thing about Izzie LOL. Show Derek listening outside the bedroom - and he says "Who's in there with Karev?" "MEREDITH?" lol. Meredith appears from the kitchen and Alex comes out sweating . . . then goes back in talking to himself LOL. Disappears from OR while performing heart surgery LOL . . . crack-up!

    Now that I look back I don't think that Alex was ever Izzie's second choice when it came to love episode 100 solidified that for me. I DO think that Izzie took Alex for granted and had trust issues with him (which is why she left the first time I mean you should assume that your husband tried to step up to protect you not ruin your career) I think that Alex was Izzie's second choice when it came to everything in life (cancer,losing your best friend,getting fired) and Izzie wasn't emotionally mature enough to confide in Alex (well she did try to confide in him when it came to George's death but Alex emotionally distanced himself during that time) I really think Izzie probably won't come back for good but maybe @ the end of the series or a guest appearance but that's about it. I really want Alex to mourn for an amount of time but NOT 2 seasons maybe a few episodes but that's it anything more would be overkill.
