Here’s some interesting Grey’s Anatomy news. An upcoming episode, which will be directed by Ellen Pompeo, will flash back to Alex’s turbulent teenage years. I always love when Grey’s explores Alex’s backstory and hopefully this means Justin will get some great material, so I’m excited. Check out what TV Line reported below.

Grey’s Anatomy: Ellen Pompeo Poised to Direct Pivotal Alex Episode

TVLine has learned exclusively that Pompeo is poised to step behind the camera later this season to direct another episode of the long-running ABC drama. This will mark the actress’ second Grey’s directing stint; she helmed last season’s 18th episode, “Be Still, My Soul,” which revolved around the death of Maggie’s (Kelly McCreary) mother.

Pompeo’s latest directing effort may prove to be equally as heavy.

Although the script is still being finalized and therefore is subject to change, sources tell TVLine that a portion of the episode will flash back to Alex’s (Justin Chambers) turbulent teenage years. Per Grey’s canon, Alex spent much of his childhood coping with a drug-addict father and schizophrenic mother (the latter of whom he had committed). He made his way through more than a dozen foster homes, spent time in juvenile detention and lost his virginity to a nurse at his high school at 15. Suffice it to say, the episode will have no shortage of ground to cover.

Producers are looking to bring in a different actor to play Young Alex.

Pompeo is slated to begin work on the episode in January, with an air date likely falling in March/April. Grey’s is set to resume its current 14th season on Jan. 18.

Back in August, Justin attended Sheila E’s live performance and release party for her album “Iconic: Message 4 America” at the Conga Room in Los Angeles. Below is a photo posted by Grey’s Anatomy crew member Bryan Mendoza from that night and besides him it also features Justin, James Pickens Jr, Jason George and MC Lyte.

Bonus video because it’s funny: Justin at the Chateau Marmont in August taking selfies with fans. I’d say this fan speaks for all of us when she says she’s glad Shonda Rhimes hasn’t killed him (Alex). Justin’s reaction to that is pretty great.😂
