Grey's Anatomy's Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) hasn't had much luck in the love department since being abandoned by wife Izzie — and when Season 9 premieres, he'll still be "a dog sleeping around," says creator Shonda Rhimes. But not for long.

"This is the season I want to see Alex find true love — his person to land with," adds Rhimes. It's also possible Rhimes will delve into the character's dark childhood and finally introduce his abusive, drug-addict father.
