Next Thursday’s episode of Grey’s marks another milestone in the twelve-season history of the show: it’s the 250th episode!
Below is the synopsis for the episode titled “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?”, a link to the 2 episode stills that Justin is in, and of course, the promo. Check it out:
“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” – In the midst of the sisters’ dinner party, Maggie ditches her cooking duties to rush to the hospital. Meanwhile, April steps in to help cook as an attempt to avoid Jackson, and Arizona nervously waits to find out more about Callie’s new girlfriend, on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Voting to determine the nominees for the 2016 People’s Choice Awards has begun (ends on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015). Justin is one of the potential nominees on the PCA site for Favorite Dramatic TV Actor.
Alex Karev wasn’t even supposed to be a long-running character on Grey’s Anatomy, but then Justin Chambers turned him into this pillar. And then after George and Izzie and Cristina, it’s just the woman that the whole show is named after … and Alex Karev. So it’s always nice when there’s an episode that helps us to remember why Dr. Karev is the man of Grey’s Anatomy after all of these years. Sure, there’s some sister drama and Bailey is chief and there are hot new interns, but this week is overflowing with Alex, and it’s overdue
★ Grey’s episode this week is titled “Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll.” Check out the synopsis, the promo and a sneak peek with Alex, Meredith, Maggie and Amelia carpooling to work.
“Old Time Rock ‘n Roll” – Owen suggests the interns learn a vital lesson on how to break bad news to patients’ families, and Arizona’s 90-year-old patient reassures her that she’s destined to find love again. Meanwhile, the sisters completely forget about the dinner party they’re hosting for everyone, on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15 (8:00 – 9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
★ Apologies for the delay, but it was a busy weekend. Cosmopolitan posted an interesting take on the character of Alex Karev. Below is only an excerpt of the article, so click on the link to read it in full.
Sidenote: Alex Karev has always been my (Diana) favorite Grey’s character!
What bothered me most was the fact that he was ever even assigned to Dr. Bailey’s service: In the pilot, only Izzie, George, Cristina, and Meredith were her interns. What was the point of transferring Alex to Dr. Bailey too? Did the network not think that three powerhouse women and one brilliant but bumbling boy next door were enough? Did we seriously (to use the frequently overused catchphrase of the show’s early seasons) need to add a white bad boy into the mix?
What followed for Alex (played by Justin Chambers) was a veritable parade of douchebaggery. He started a syphilis outbreak. (Not hating on his casual sex game, but he’s a doctor — he should know to use condoms.) He yelled at patients and treated women (actually, everyone) like they were beneath him. He somehow managed to both sexually harass and reject Addison Montgomery Shepherd. And he entered into a codependent relationship with Jane Doe/Ava that nearly destroyed both of them. There were flashes of compassion throughout — I’ll admit I got choked up when he picked up Izzie and carried her away from Denny Dukette’s death bed — and it was clear viewers were supposed to see him as a jerk with a heart of gold, in part because we were supplied with plenty of explanations for his behavior. He had an abusive father, a mentally ill mother, and a youth spent in foster care and juvie. But all those explanations were just that: explanations. They weren’t excuses.
And yet now here we are, in a world where Alex is responsible enough to be Meredith’s emergency contact. In a world where he’s in a loving, honest relationship with Jo, someone with whom he’s finally allowed himself to be vulnerable. In a world where, if my suspicious/fantasies are correct, he’s going to be a committed father before the season is up. How did Grey’s pull this off?
@wbharp is Grey’s executive producer, William Harper, who is also the writer of tonight’s episode titled “I Choose You.” Sounds like Justin has some great material! Tune into Grey’s to find out the answer to the question below and more! :)
