It's been a sad, sad week for Grey's Anatomy fans. It was announced last week that major characters April Kepner (Sarah Drew) and Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) are leaving the show at the end of season 14, which has everyone feeling emotional. While the cast has already spoken out about the heartbreaking exits, it looks like Drew herself is maintaining that big smile, and there's no better person to assist with that than Dr. Alex Karev (aka Justin Chambers).
On Monday, the adorable costars posted a series of sweet Instagram posts together. "Oh how I love this one right here :) He's a gem inside and out. Makes everyone feel loved wherever he goes — and keeps us all laughing. 😘😘❤️❤️ I love you @officialjustinchambers," Drew captioned the photo above. While the two did get off to a rocky start upon meeting in season six after the merger — seriously, who didn't Alex get off to rocky start with?! — their contagious smiles might just mend our broken Grey's hearts.
Will April's departure end with another tragic death on the series? Will she and Jackson magically get back together? Will she have another baby? Only time will tell how April's story ends, but given her recent downward spiral during season 14, it's safe to say fans are finding a little nonfiction hope in these sweet posts with Chambers.
