Following reports that Alex's brother would soon make an appearance on Grey’s Anatomy, the show has hired Jake McLaughlin (below) to play Aaron Karev, his younger sibling.
Alex’s estranged bro, Aaron, checks into Seattle Grace as a patient in this season’s 19th episode. So far, 15 episodes have aired this season, with the next one set for March 4.
From what we've gathered about the Karev's this mini-family reunion will be emotional, as viewers have never met a member of Alex’s troubled family, likely for good reason.
What took so long? We'll find out soon enough, but in the meantime, share your theories and opinions with us. What do you think Aaron Karev will reveal to us about Alex?
