Alex was first seen in Spring Break Forever, trying to check out of a hotel because he got a better room somewhere else. He was asking for a refund for five nights, which the hotel manager denied. He was with his fiancée, Tawny Carr. Alex's family strongly disliked Tawny and disapproved of their engagement.
Alex took a phone call while in the hotel lobby, when the explosion happened. His fiancée was killed and he was hurt and lost a hand.
