‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Lindsay Wagner to Return as Alex’s Mother in Season 15

Mama Karev is back.

Lindsay Wagner will reprise her role as Alex’s mother, Helen Karev, for a very special episode in the current 15th season, ET has exclusively learned.

Wagner, who was first introduced late last season, will appear in the 15th episode, which holds special meaning for Grey’s. The episode, slated to air in late February, will make Grey’s the longest-running primetime medical drama in history, surpassing ER.

While storylines are being kept under wraps, as is usual practice on Grey’s, things between mother and son were left on a positive note by the end of the season 14 episode, “Fight for Your Mind.” With his mother having suffered from schizophrenia for most of his childhood, Alex (Justin Chambers) had to see for himself that his mom was on a brighter path, after learning that she was not cashing the checks he had been sending for quite some time. When they reunited at the Iowa library she had returned to work at, Helen explained that her mental illness had “burned itself out” and that she was more “vigilant” with her daily routine. They appeared to have mended fences, as she offered to have Alex change the due date on the library stamp, something he used to love doing when he was younger. Earlier this month, ABC bumped up the episode order for season 15 from 22 to 25, bringing the standing total for Grey’s to 342 episodes at the culmination of the season. In addition to Wagner’s return, Jennifer Grey will also be joining the show in a top-secret role, which very well could be Jo’s estranged mother.

Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Grey’s Anatomy Boss Talks Mer/DeLuca Elevator Fallout, Drops Big Clue About ‘The One’

And then there were two. Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff confirms that Meredith’s crowded Season 15 dance card now contains just two names: DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) and Link (Chris Carmack).

“Her dating adventure has boiled down to [that] triangle,” the EP tells TVLine. “I can’t reveal more than that.”

As you will recall, Vernoff over the summer teased, “The question this season is not ‘Will Meredith Grey find love again,’ but ‘With whom will she find love?’”

Considering that the fall finale ended with Mer being trapped in an elevator with DeLuca, conventional wisdom suggests the surgical resident has the upper hand heading into the Jan. 17 midseason premiere. And while Vernoff promises that the maybe-couple will emerge from captivity “with a deeper understanding of each other” (and, in Mer’s case, some kickass Princess Leia braids; see below), she notes that Link will soon get some one-on-one time with Grey as well. “In Episode 10, Meredith will get to know Link better,” Vernoff previews. “She gets to know DeLuca better in [Episode 9, aka the midseason premiere], and she gets to know Link better in 10.”

And to those fans who grumble that neither gentleman caller has the life experience to truly go toe-to-toe with Mer, Vernoff argues, “Viewers don’t yet know all of DeLuca’s life experience. And they don’t yet know all of Link’s life experience.

“And if life experience is code for age, then I would ask those viewers to look at the double standard,” she adds. “Because they never questioned Meredith for Derek even though there was an age difference.”

Jolex Spoilers From The Spoiler Room

Something about Jolex’s storyline on Grey’s Anatomy? I love them so much. — Giusina
It won’t be long before Alex finds out that Jo Wilson isn’t who she says she is. “Obviously, he’s going to find out why she can’t marry him,” Justin Chambers says. “I don’t know where that takes them from there, but he’s hurt, and he’s angry, and he’s wrong, but he’s also right.” Unfortunately for Alex, Jo will have a very strong reaction to what he did.

Grey’s Anatomy to explore domestic violence in season 13

Heading into its 13th season, Grey’s Anatomy will be shining a light on domestic violence, exploring the repercussions of Alex (Justin Chambers) pummeling DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), which was ultimately a miscommunication resulting from the reveal that Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) is married to an abusive man she ran away from.

At the close of season 12, Jo turned down Alex’s proposal, scared to confess that she couldn’t marry him because she was already wed. In truth, her name isn’t even Jo Wilson. Season 13 picks up in the aftermath, as Alex faces the consequences of his actions both at the hospital, but also in his relationship with Jo, whose backstory will finally unfurl this year.
