Cristina's post-shooting breakdown has been front and center this season, but we shouldn't forget that Alex Karev hasn't been having the easiest time, either. Lexie cut him down to size, he can hardly get in an elevator, and if it were up to him, he'd still be walking around with a bullet in his chest. So, not exactly stable and well adjusted. Are things going to get any better for the wounded doc?
Well, we don't have the key to his future. But Shonda Rhimes did give EW a hint about his role in Episode 6: "He channels his inner Justin Bieber while treating a pediatric patient." Rhimes remains mum on what she means, but we’re thinking either Karev ditches his usual buzz cut for a shaggy rocker ‘do, or he serenades a patient who’s crushing on him. Either way, we're hoping he'll finally crack a smile.
