Grey's Anatomy: Lindsay Wagner Cast as Alex's Mother

at .

Grey's Anatomy is delving further into Alex's backstory. 

Per Deadline, Lindsay Wagner will appear in an upcoming episode of the medical drama as Alex's mother. 

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you will already know that we met Alex's mother in flashbacks earlier on Grey's Anatomy Season 14

We think it's fair to say that she was not the best mother, and there are going to be a lot of awkward scenes between her and Alex when they meet in the present. 

Wagner will appear on the May 3 episode which is titled "Fight For Your Mind." The episode will revolve around Alex and Jo who embark on a road trip to find Alex's mother.

He's not heard from her in some time, so it sounds like he will want to find out more about his past, and more importantly, why she has not reached out to him.

This will give Alex the chance to open up to Jo more about his past, and we're sure it will bring them closer together than ever before. 

Jesse Williams will direct the hour which will also focus on Meredith's mini-livers project. 

Wagner has previously had roles in The Bionic Woman and Scruples. 

Grey's Anatomy was renewed for Season 15 late last week. The renewal was a no-brainer when you consider the fact that it still ranks as ABC's highest-rated drama.

Grey's Anatomy Season 14 is averaging 7.7 million viewers and a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49. 

The series will say goodbye to Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw in the coming weeks since both actresses have been let go.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

Meredith: You're better than this. You're stronger.
Amelia: Don't make this all your fault. I know you. That's what you do. But, please. Please don't do that.
Maggie: We can't just give up, not after all this time. We have to stand together. We have to fight.
Meredith: Because it's just us now. There were five of us, and now it's just you and I. And it can't be just me. It can't be. I will go down swinging for you, Alex. You know I will. But that means you can't give up. You don't throw the fight. So, whatever you're doing this for... please don't.
