Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) holds a special place in our Grey's Anatomy lovin' hearts. The perpetually-unlucky-in-love doc with the grouchy demeanor and soft spot for kids had been around since Day One, and at this point, all we want is for him to find some freakin' happiness.

Will Season 9 be the year things finally go really right for Alex? We've rounded up all of the juiciest spoilers about the bad boy of the pediatrics department here.

He finds his "person": According to showrunner Shonda Rhimes, she's aiming for Alex to find his "person" this season. He's definitely going to have a serious love interest, and it's going to be a character we didn't know before the start of the season.

Intern relations: Which, yes, means it very well might be one of the new interns. Apparently he and Jo (Camilla Luddington) are going to end up working together a lot, and he gets under her skin in a major way. Hints of a romance? Sounds like it to us!

Unfortunately, all is not well in the intern world, because intern Leah will be heartbroken by Alex's playboy ways. This is why you don't sleep with the interns, Alex!

Alex's past: We may also find out more about Alex's troubled past, and perhaps even meet his abusive father.
