Justin Chambers is no Ashton Kutcher, but Katherine Heigl tells MTV News that she misses her estranged relationship with estranged Grey's Anatomy ex Alex Karev. This, after she was told that Karev mouthed her name after he was shot on the show's bad-ass season finale (if you haven't seen it, that makes two of you, you and Heigl).

'Grey's Anatomy' Fan Columnist: Season Six Wrap Up

"I'm going to have to watch this now. I have to see Alex call for Izzie and her never come ... I really miss that relationship,"



Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes previously explained that the decision for Alex to call out Izzie's name and not Lexie's (Chyler Leigh) was an attempt to "find a way to deal with how much Alex is missing Izzie."

"Justin Chambers is one of the most amazing men and certainly a spectacular actor," she said. "I feel oddly attached to him and the character and my character being together. It just seems what's supposed to be, but you can't have it all."

In slightly more distressing news, Ellen Pompeo tells Extra that he will "probably" not renew once her contract expires after season 8. Her character Meredith I'm-having-a-miscarriage-I-need-Lidocaine Grey is the show's titular role.

"I think the world has had a lot of Meredith Grey," Pompeo says.

As for Rhimes, she said the season 6 finale was just "the beginning of the baby story" for Meredith and Derek (Patrick Dempsey). She does concede, however, that Reed and Charles weren't the real casualties on the crazy episode.

"The real death of the episode is the miscarriage," Rhimes closes.
