‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Sneak Peek: Alex in a World of Trouble

Kelly Woo

Paging someone who can fix the nightmare that Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) finds himself in on Thursday’s Season 13 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy.

In last May’s finale, Alex beat DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) to a bloody pulp after finding him with his girlfriend, Jo (Camilla Luddington). DeLuca was just helping his fellow drunk intern out, but Alex misunderstood and thought they were hooking up — and his fists went flying. Now, DeLuca is in the hospital and Alex may be facing the consequences.

In this sneak peek, Alex worriedly asks Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) to give a second opinion on DeLuca’s brain scans. “What if they missed something?” he frets.

“Alex, this is really bad,” Meredith warns.

Then, Alex runs into Ben (Jason George), who is skeptical about his fellow doctor’s story — which means it won’t be long until the truth comes out about what happened. And when it does, it could lead to dire consequences for Alex at the hospital … and possibly with the police.
