'Grey's Anatomy' Showrunner Talks About Handling Alex's Departure With 'Caution' & Will Give the Audience 'Clarity'

While Grey’s Anatomy fans are still shocked about Justin Chambers‘ sudden exit of the show, showrunner Krista Vernoff has revealed that clarity about Alex’s depature will be explained.

In an interview with Variety, the showrunner revealed that coming to a resolution about the exit is like “a very careful threading of a needle, where we are giving a little bit of information and pain to Jo.”

“We’re, episode by episode, illuminating the story of where Alex is. And it takes us quite a few more episodes to get there and to give the audience clarity,” she added.

Krista also Alex’s exit will be handled with caution because of Jo’s previous storyline.

“Jo went through so much pain and so much grief just last season that I wanted to be careful,” she said. “And so it’s a bit of a mystery [what’s going on with Alex], so that we don’t watch Jo in the same place that we watched her last season. We did it as carefully as we could. But it takes a while to get there.”

Alex was last seen in a November 2019 episode, during which he left town to take care of his mother. Jo hinted at his permanent departure in last week’s episode.
