“Leave a Light On” is the title of tonight’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy but really, it’s The One Where We Find Out What Happened To Alex Karev. Unfortunately, we won’t get any clues in the official description or the small number of preview images that ABC released to promote the March 5 episode.
Here’s that short description:
Bailey and Ben face a huge, life-altering decision, while Meredith and several of the doctors reflect on the past on an all-new episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, MARCH 5 (9:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on ABC. Episodes can also be viewed next day on demand and on Hulu.
As for what happened to Alex Karev? We have no idea, but our guess is that the character is either no longer with us or has gone missing since Justin Chambers is not returning for the episode (though we may see him in flashbacks). (Actually, if you want to know what happened to Alex Karev, look to the bottom of this post. You have been warned!)
The small selection of photos can be seen below.
