According to what creator Shonda Rhimes told TVLine, it looks like Jo will be working double time to fix Alex’s relationship with his dad, even if it causes conflict in their relationship.
“Jo’s never had a family and she’s always longed for one,” Shonda said. “It’s hard for her to understand why Alex would not want a chance to know his father.”
And, we’re excited to find out that we’ll be learning more about Alex’s sullied past, too. Shonda promises that although Daddy Karev has left the hospital, he’ll be back before long, bringing with him details about how Alex’s family fell apart.
We can’t wait to learn more background info about Alex, but seriously hope that his dad doesn’t get in the way of his budding romance with Jo. Those two are super adorable together, and we’re thrilled Alex has finally found someone so suited for him.
What do you hope we learn about Alex’s past this season? Let us know below!
