A New Grey's Anatomy Couple?

at . Comments

Fans of Mer/Der may have hit the jackpot with this latest piece of Grey's Anatomy gossip, courtesy of TV Guide's Michael Ausiello.

Responding to a reader question, in which a Mer/Der lover begs for positive news about her favorite Grey's Anatomy couple, the TV sleuth reports that they may have dodged a bullet regarding Ms. Lexie Grey.

Basically, he hears from sources that Lexie and Derek are not happening â€" at least not at the onset of Season Four. Word around Seattle Grace is that Lexie (Chyler Leigh) develops a new romantic interest... Alex Karev!

That should certainly make things awfully interesting when for Dr. Karev (Justin Chambers), as Jane Doe / Rebecca (Elizabeth Reaser) will also be returning to the scene around Episode 4.

Gorgeous Chyler Leigh
It's Justin Time!

Alex Karev and Lexie Grey? Stay tuned!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
