Alex to Find True Love on Grey's Anatomy?

by at . Comments

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.

they are AMAZING 2ogether


There is only one person I accept as Alex' true lovee! And she left 3 seasons ago! Bring her back Shonda and even if it's only for the last couple of episodes for the serie. Izzy and Alex belong together. The always have, always will. I'm like 90 % sure I won't ever like another woman on his side and even less some new chick we haven't even met yet.


uh yeah! im cheering for crazy Dr.Alex :)


I would like to see Alex with a new person. I was never all that fond of the Izzie & Alex or Lucy & Alex. Alex is a person who lives and breathes the truth. His childhood filled with lies and pain has left him clinging to truth even when it hurts. He lashes out so he isn't the one who is hurt and then he is hurt anyway, it is sad. I want him to find a strong, kind soul who will see right through him and love him, not the facade or the dog, but the man who would hold a dying child so he would not die alone.


IZZIE!!!!!!!! They seemed like a good couple!!! And I miss O'Malley!!


Please, Alex only has chemistry with her.
KH wants to come back so please Shonda TAKE HER BACK!


to all that keep saying alex should be happy... if they were happy people there would be no show uh duhhhh


izzie has said she wanted to come back and this is a great place to bring her back lately the writers havent really been staying true to whp the characters are and one thing about alex is his only true love is with izzie... shonda and others get your act together and bring back the characters we all miss...(one example: umm why is meredith actually shes also boring)


As far as I'm concerned Alex and Izzie are the only thing that makes any since. They're end game and the only relationship on the show I cared a great deal about besides Callie and Arizona & Mark and Lexie. That said, I'd be willing to give Alex and someone else a'd be interesting...if done well. ALSO, we need to see more of Alex's family. It's been promised to us that we would see more of them in the past two seasons but we got nothing...WTF Shonda. I want more Alex drama with his family...pleae and thank you.


I think Morgan could be making a mark here. Alex is known for going for the messed up ones and she is it. But she's also practical with it and isn't afraid to say what she thinks to him. Yes, she is a bit puppy-dog like but I wouldn't be surprised if this happened. It would also lead to Alex staying at SGMW, don't forget he was supposed to be leaving. A combination of Arizona being out of action for a while with her injuries and Morgan being there will hold him there. On another note, I'm keen to see Jackson and April try for something more now!

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."
