'Grey's Anatomy' Will Send Off Justin Chambers' Alex Karev in This Episode

As we continue crying over Justin Chambers no longer being on Grey’s Anatomy, we now know how his character, Alex Karev, will officially be sent off.

The 49-year-old actor’s last on-screen appearance in the series was in November 2019 – before Alex returned home to take care of his mom – but he will receive his official exit moment during the March 5 episode.

A trailer for the episode, called “Leave A Light On,” features an emotional flashback through Justin‘s 16 seasons.

“We’re saying goodbye to Dr. Alex Karev,” the title cards read. “See how his story ends.”

“We’re episode by episode, illuminating the story of where Alex is,” showrunner Krista Vernoff has said. “It’s a bit of a mystery [what’s going on with Alex]. We don’t watch Jo in the same place that we watched her in last season. We did it as carefully as we could. But it takes a while to get there.”

Watch the trailer now.

Hear what Justin Chambers had to say about his departure here, and what star Ellen Pompeo had to say here.
