With Grey’s Anatomy returning with new episodes next Thursday, January 29th, and TV Guide paying a visit to the set this week, we’re finally getting some news about the stories we’ll be seeing on the show.
Below we have Justin talking a bit about Alex stepping up and being Meredith’s “person” and the effect that has on his relationship with girlfriend, Jo.
Mega Buzz: Who’s Having an “Emotional Affair” on Grey’s Anatomy?
Sorry, Grey’s Anatomy fans, but it’s true: Meredith and Derek are going to have a long-distance relationship. And they might not be the only couple in jeopardy as a result.
Although the winter premiere picks up with both Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) living in Seattle, it won’t be long before Derek defects to D.C. to take a job with the Obama administration. So how will Meredith cope with being, in essence, a single working mom? Enter Alex (Justin Chambers), who finds himself stepping up even more in his role as Meredith’s new Person. “It comes off somewhat begrudgingly, but underneath it all, I think he’s really happy to have that connection,” Chambers tells TVGuide.com.
But Jo (Camilla Luddington) is less enthused about Alex and Meredith’s strengthening bond. And perhaps for good reason! “I guess you could call it an emotional affair in a sense,” Chambers teases. “It has come between [Alex and Jo].”
