In the Thursday, March 5 episode of Grey’s Anatomy, viewers officially said goodbye to Justin Chambers and his character Alex Karev. Warning, spoilers for how the show wrote of the character follow.
The character’s exit happened off screen and it was revealed he reunited with Izzie (Katherine Heigl) who had been raising children she had with him without his knowledge. He left his share of the hospital to his (now) ex-wife Jo (Camilla Luddington). Chambers was an original cast member on the series. Karev and Meredith Grey were the last of the intern class that started Grey’s Anatomy.
