Justin Chambers on Grey's Anatomy Betrayal: Hard to Get Past

at . Comments

Will Alex be forgiven for what he did to Meredith in the Grey’s Anatomy finale? Perhaps, but after selling her out that hard, redemption won't come quickly or easily.

“What he did was wrong,” Justin Chambers tells TV Line.

“It was really uncool. There’s nothing worse than a rat. The alcohol had a lot to do with it,” he adds. “That’s the only thing that’s making me go, ‘Okay, we all make mistakes. We do stupid things when we drink.’ But still, that’s a hard one to get past.”

As for Alex's future romantic prospects, Chambers says his alter ego is more hung up on the past. The woman for Dr. Karev, even now, remains Dr. Izzie Stevens.

“They were the real deal - as much as a real deal can be on Grey’s Anatomy. That was the love of his life,” adding that he “would love” to see his friend Katherine Heigl return to give their storyline closure. “She is so fun,” he says.

“She is one of the funnest people I have ever worked with. She really is a special gal. I would love to have her back. Maybe we will before the season ends.”

Her exit was strangely open-ended, as we know. Would you like to see Izzie return to Seattle, and if so, do you think she and Alex should end up together?

Elsewhere on the Grey's front, Michael Ausiello teases:

  • Kevin McKidd will direct the coming season's sixth episode, but unlike his debut effort, Owen (the new chief of surgery) will appear frequently.
  • Scott Foley's Henry will be around “a decent amount of time,” according to Shonda Rhimes. “We’d keep him around forever if we could.”
  • Kim Raver says, on that note, that “We start out [the fall] where they’re really madly in love. They’re really very, very close right now. I definitely think for Teddy, Henry completes who she is and what she needs.”

Just watched a sneak peek of Grey's Anatomy Season 8.01, Chief Webber the Hospital board met and said Meredith's suspension wasn't enough so they fired her instead. Now I am more then ready for Season 8 to start.


I want to see Izzie back, but only if it ends happily for her and Alex.. I don't want to see him hurt again.


I LOVE them as a couple. It was refreshing to watch them fall in love and see that they struggled like everyone else at the same time. Bring her back!!!!


Izzy's a major character of grey's...she has to come back for the season finale...because everyone is leaving this year and this cicle should be closed so that another opens(if grey's continues with the new characters)....(which i wont watch)...


Alex and Izzie were always meant to be and I am so happy that Justin Chambers thinks so too. They could do one of two things to get the two back together. Since Justing Chambers may not renew his contract, I think it would be great if Izzie came back for the last episode and asked Alex to move back home with her. Or, If Katherine Heigl really refuses to come back, Alex could simply end the show by packing all of his stuff and saying that he was going to get Izzie back and that he wasn't letting her go this time. Seriously, that would make me love Grey's Anatomy again.
I originally loved the shows because of the characters and how much you got wrapped up in them. The newer characters aren't quite the same. We know nothing about their past or who they are as a person. That's why I can't quite make my self like April (and because she's annoying) and why I can't like Jackson who had alot of potential after the season 6 finale. But SR made him that 'pretty boy' this season. I used to hate Teddy on the show until they brought Henry on the show and showed us more of her emotional side. She needs to make a rocking last season and make us love the characters and then end the show on a high instead of a low.


I believe Greys wanted to keep racheal Taylor but the Charlies angels reboot got in the way hence why she's gone. Would of loved to seen her stay but oh well we move on.


I really think it's time to kill of Izzie's character. If they can make Mer have a hostile womb, Cris have an abortion why can't we hear the news that Izzie's cancer came back? I was thinking Mr Altman was gonna be gone soon, Altman's love life doesn't interest me. How many more ops is this man gonna need. Will he qualify for the clinical trial still?? But SR has hinted Alex does get his friends back. But I think it'll be intersting to watch him revert back to intern Alex who was so obnoxious. I'll miss the MerAlex brother sister act, they were really great together before the betrayal


No, I don't want to see KH. She left, left in the middle of the season, not caring about her fellow actors, especially Justin, which affected his storyline. I don't want to see her near Grey's. Get rid of April and bring in a normal person, like the peds doctor that went to Charlie's Angel. She was perfect for Alex but of course, Shonda wrote her in and Shonda wrote her out.


i would love to see Izzie back on the show. Alex and Izzie was the best written couple on the show imo. They fight, they had relationships with other people but somehow they always bounce back to each other. They will call on each other's shit but they still have each other's back. I love them.


The only episode I want Izzie in is ... if Ortho Doc sings "At Last"... I am gonna kick your ass & "Stormy Weather"... You are gonna need a doctor & Oh no you ain't givin me no "Fever".

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
