Ahead of tonight’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, more interviews with Justin are being posted. Check out what he had to say to Variety and Entertainment Weekly about Alex’s fate and what to expect now that he is back.

Variety – ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Justin Chambers on Karev’s Fate: ‘He Just Never Seems to Catch a Break’

null Last week’s “Grey’s Anatomy” revealed the fate of Alex Karev (Justin Chambers).

After numerous episodes this season dealt with the aftermath of Karev beating up DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), Alex had decided to accept a plea deal, which would put him behind bars. However, he had gone missing and no one knew what he was up to — until last week when suddenly, he surprised Meredith at home.

The episode last week cut with Karev’s surprise return home, begging the question, how did he get out of jail time? Tonight’s ep will reveal all of those details. But first, Variety chatted with Justin Chambers about what to expect now that Alex is back.

“I think having everything taken from him — I think he learned a lot there, but I think he appreciates being in peace and he’s very good at what he does and he thrives there,” Chambers explains of how the experience will change Alex.

As for Jo (Camilla Luddington), their relationship will require a lot of work to get back on track. “He was going to take a plea deal to protect his girl. They’re not together right now, but we’ll see where that goes,” Chambers says. “He’s still angry with her, but if anyone knows anything about second chances, it’s Alex. So he has that to think about. She messed up, but there must be a piece of him that still feels for her. Love just doesn’t die like that.”

Whatever happens, Chambers has a personal wish for his character: “I just hope Alex finds some happiness. Crap. He just never seems to catch a break. I’m thinking soon there might be some stability,” he teases.

However, in real life, Chambers is ecstatic to be experiencing 13 seasons of stability…

“It’s a blessing. It’s crazy. It’s so awesome,” the original cast member says of “Grey’s Anatomy’s” flourishing in its 13th season. “With a laugh, he adds, “Even ‘ER,’ I think their ratings dropped a lot in their 13th year.”


Entertainment Weekly – Grey’s Anatomy: Justin Chambers teases resolution for Alex’s fate

null Well, we’ve had a whole week to think about it — just how did Alex Karev end up in Meredith’s bed and not a jail cell?

That’s what everyone was wondering at the end of last week’s Grey’s Anatomy, and Thursday’s episode will reveal just how Alex avoided going to jail. Perhaps not surprisingly, it’s an outcome Grey’s star Justin Chambers, who plays Dr. Karev, was happy about.

“I thought it was great – I’m happy he’s not in jail! That’s a different show, you know, if he’s in jail,” Chambers told EW of his reaction when learning Alex’s fate. “You’re gonna find out in this next episode how he got off, but I’m happy he’s going back to the hospital, and he’s gonna be back working in [pediatrics] where he belongs, and curing young people.”

However Karev lands that get-out-of-jail card, it clears the path for him to return to work at Grey Sloan, which means he’ll be interacting with both Jo and DeLuca. Asked if this paves the way for him and Jo to reconcile, Chambers replied, “I hope so, I really do. They’ve been through so much over the past, they both have a similar background, and they both have a lot that they connect about. But this was a big deal for him to find out she’s not who he thought she was, and how do you come back from that? And from what happened, this whole situation with him beating up DeLuca, the misunderstandings and why she lied, it’s gonna be interesting to see how they can fix this and we’ll find out over the next few episodes.”

This week’s episode, titled “None of Your Business,” also finds Bailey continuing to deal with the fallout from the attendings’ resistance to working with Dr. Minnick and Edwards still in the middle of Owen and Amelia’s personal drama. Plus, Maggie (Kelly McCreary) gets a surprise visit at the hospital from her mother, played by guest star LaTanya Richardson Jackson.

“Kelly does some great work — [she and LaTanya] together are just awesome to watch,” Chambers said. “It’s a really good episode, I’m proud of it. Everyone across the board — I’m really excited to work with these actors and watch what they do.”

Alex Karev is back! In the most recent episode, Justin appeared briefly at the very end, so there are only a few screencaps.
I also redid the screencaps from the season 13 premiere because some of the previous ones had ABC promotional ads on them. (Link: Screencaps > 13.01 – Undo)

Screencaps > 13.11 – Jukebox Hero

The next episode of Grey’s is entitled “None of Your Business.” Check out the synopsis and the promo below.

“None of Your Business” – Maggie gets a surprise visit from her mother at the hospital. Bailey has to make a difficult decision when one of the attendings refuses to work with Eliza, and Stephanie gets caught up in Owen and Amelia’s personal drama, on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9 (8:00-9:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.


Tomorrow night a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy airs and ABC has been airing another promo for it and also a TGIT promo. Check them out:

This is a sneak peek from the episode. It doesn’t have Alex Karev in it, but it’s about him so I’ll leave it here, too.


Jessica Capshaw (Arizona Robbins) gave an interview to Variety where she talked about the Grey’s Anatomy midseason premiere and Alex’s situation. I’m posting only what she had to say about Alex, the full interview can be read at the link.

Variety: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 13 Midseason Premiere: Does Karev Go to Jail? (SPOILERS)

Variety: In the final scene, Bailey tells Arizona and Jo that Karev took the plea deal and he’s going to jail. Is that actually going to happen, or is there any chance he can turn back?

Jessica: No. I think it’s definitely a ship that has sailed and I think you’re meant to believe that, and now you need to brace yourself for what will happen, now that he’s done that [taken the plea deal].

So, will we see Karev behind bars?

You’re going to have to watch the show! [laughing]

How will Arizona deal with this news about Karev?

I think she’s completely devastated. Between having seen a pretty horrific side of parenting and motherhood [at the prison, earlier in the episode], and now combined with the fact that one of her nearest-and-dearest proteges could be taken away forever, I think it’s as bad as it gets. If he goes to prison, he can’t practice medicine again. I think it’s a pretty sh-tty car ride home.

If Karev does go to jail, will we continue to see him? What does this mean for Justin Chambers on the show?

When you watch the show, you’re going to find out whether or not he really goes and what happens and what could get him out or what could keep him in. You’re going to see it all.

This Thursday, the episode is entitled “Jukebox Hero.” Below is the synopsis for episode and the promo. There’s a sneak peek out and it can be watched HERE.

“Jukebox Hero” – Richard and the attendings set out to make Eliza’s first day at Grey Sloan a bumpy one. Meanwhile, Meredith tries to track down Alex, on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2 (8:00-9:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.


Justin’s Grey’s Anatomy co-star, Jessica Capshaw, was recently on BUILD Series and she spoke about working with Justin and his generosity as an actor. 💜
Check out what she had to say below (full interview can be watched HERE)

Another one of Justin’s co-stars, Camilla Luddington, attended ABC’s party at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour a couple of weeks ago. She spoke with Entertainment Tonight and mentions Justin, the increasing difficulty of hiding her pregnancy during filming and Jo & Alex, among other things.

The autoplay video and the full article can be seen at ET Online, but this is what Camilla had to say about the aforementioned topics:

But don’t expect Luddington’s pregnancy to be written into the show. As the actress revealed, it’s become increasingly difficult for the producers to find unique ways to hide her growing baby bump.

“I’m already in trouble,” she admitted. “I think they’re getting to the point where they might have to green screen/CGI it out actually, which they really do! Any time Justin [Chambers] hugs me, he’s like, ‘I can feel the bump!’”

As for the future of Jo and Alex, Luddington hopes they can resolve their issues and get back together.

“I am Team Jolex, but they’re just so messy,” she said, referencing the fall finale when Alex seemingly decided to turn himself in. “And with the midseason finale, it was really difficult to film. I’m really rooting for them. I know he’s doing this for her. It’s a dramatic return.”

TV Guide also interviewed Camilla at the TCA press tour and she talked about Alex and Jo in the last November’s Grey’s Anatomy midseason finale and whether her pregnancy will be written into the show. Check it out in the video below:

In another interview with Yahoo! Style, Camilla talks about the next three episodes of Grey’s and to expect more “traumatic storylines and drama” between Alex and Jo.

But regarding art, not life, what about fans’ burning question: Will Jo ever find love, or some version thereof? Or will she continue to sabotage herself?

“What I can tell you is the next three episodes take place right after the season finale. It’s the 72 hours after everything happens,” she explains. “Jo is in a complicated place with Alex [Chambers]. But I think she still is madly, completely in love with him. Her reaction to the drama that is happening with him means that she is destroyed by it.”

But the show’s actors don’t get their scripts until Monday, the day of the table read. So often what you see on camera is their authentic reactions to some of the show’s most emotionally insane cuts and bruises.

“What that means is, we’re all discovering the storylines at the same time,” Luddington says. “It makes for the most emotional table reads. It’s almost like we’re the audience, just with no wine. People are gasping and crying.” But initially, she says, “What you’re going to see is not some great reconciliation [between Jo and Alex]. Just more traumatic storylines and drama between them.”

Tomorrow night is the midseason premiere of Grey’s Anatomy and though Justin will not be in it (😞), I’ll leave links to sneak peeks and previews. 😉

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Spoilers: 3 Things to Know About the Winter Premiere

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ mid-season 13 premiere: 5 teases from the prison centric episode


ABC President, Channing Dungey, says she wants Grey’s Anatomy to continue for several more seasons, and highlights the interest people have in Alex and Meredith’s relationship.

Entertainment Weekly: Grey’s Anatomy – Shondaland ‘full steam ahead’ on more seasons


At the Television Critics Association’s press tour, EW sat down with Dungey to get her take on the future of Grey’s Anatomy, which is currently in its 13th season. By comparison, NBC’s stalwart medical series ER ran for 15 seasons, which Dungey hopes the flagship Shonda Rhimes drama can rival.

“That’d be lovely,” Dungey says. “I’ll take even more! Honestly, I think that the show is going to continue as long as Shonda and the gang have a creative passion for telling those stories. At the moment, it feels like we’re full steam ahead.”

In its 13th season, Grey’s Anatomy continues to be one of the network’s longest running and most successful current scripted series, averaging 11.6 million viewers and a 3.7 in the 18-49 demo, slightly down from this time last year (12 million, 3.9), but still making it the fourth biggest entertainment show after The Big Bang Theory, Empire, and This Is Us. Even Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) death in season 11 didn’t slow the show down, giving it a creative resurgence as Grey’s was able to explore new life for Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).

What does Grey’s need to do next to keep viewers coming back? “What Shonda and the team at Grey’s have really been able to do over time is continue to bring in new characters that give the series additional life and energy while remaining true to the core cast of characters,” Dungey says. “When I’ve been looking at the fan feedback and reaction from this season, people are more interested than ever in the relationship between Meredith and Alex [Justin Chambers], and these are two characters that have been around since season 1. But we’re now experiencing them in a totally different way than we have before. That’s just what the writers do so well; they continually peel back new layers of these characters that we get to expand and explore.”

Grey’s Anatomy returns tomorrow night on ABC (and CTV for Canadian viewers). Check out the promo for the TGIT lineup which includes Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder.
