When Grey's Anatomy Season 9 begins next month, Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) will be back to his old ways.
In other words, when it comes to love, he'll still be "a dog sleeping around," says creator Shonda Rhimes.
He certainly hasn't been lucky in the romance area since Izzie left, but that may soon turn around.
"This is the season I want to see Alex find true love - his person to land with," Rhimes says.
There are certainly more avenues for writers to take this complex character, whose dark childhood and drug-addict father have played a major role in influencing who he is, for better or worse.
