‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Station 19’ Crossover: Someone Dies and We’re Already Messed Up

The Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 crossover event on Jan. 23 is finally here. But it’s not all fun and games this time around. Recently, showrunner Krista Vernoff and a few members of the cast previewed what will happen next. And now, it’s confirmed — someone will die in the Grey’s AnatomyStation 19 crossover. So basically, it’s time to grab a box of tissues and a bottle of tequila. This one’s going to be messy.

What happened in the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ midseason finale?

The final moments of the Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 winter premiere were downright shocking. Not only did Jo (Camilla Luddington) steal a baby, but Amelia found out she could be pregnant with Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) child and not Link’s (Chris Carmack). And just as everyone was winding down at Joe’s Bar, a car crashed into the building and trapped everyone inside.

For now, it seems like all the Grey Sloan residents — such as Levi Schmitt (Jake Borelli), Taryn Helm (Jaicy Elliot), and Casey Parker (Alex Blue Davis) — were at the bar at the time of the crash. Meanwhile, Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams), Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), and Nico Kim (Alex Landi) were at the scene. And Ben Warren (Jason George) and Captain Pruitt Herrera (Miguel Sandoval) from Station 19 were also present.

The trailer preview for the Grey’s AnatomyStation 19 crossover then previewed everyone struggling to survive. The firefighters come to get everyone out — while trying to avoid the building from collapsing. Meanwhile, the doctors inside — such as Jackson — care for the injured. But of course, it’s not going to be easy.

When speaking with TV Insider, Vernoff revealed Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 fans need to worry about everyone trapped inside Joe’s Bar.

“The bar is underground, and the structure is unstable,” Vernoff said. “Arguably, we could worry about everyone [in there] — which includes the responding [firefighters].”

Vernoff also hinted Station 19 will be much darker moving forward, adding the third season will feature “more death and chaos.” Then in an interview with ABC News at the network’s TCA press tour, the showrunner confirmed “someone does die” in the Grey’s Anatomy-Station 19 crossover.

“You are gonna cry… and you’re gonna laugh,” Vernoff said of the Jan. 23 event. “You’re gonna be on the edge of your seat.”

Still speaking with ABC News, a few members of the Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 cast touched on the dreaded death coming in the crossover event.

“We’re all in peril,” Borelli said. “It’s tricky, I hope it’s not me. That’s all I have to say.”

“It’s going to be a slam-bang kind of event, as Grey’s tends to be,” Pickens said. “I’m looking forward to this one myself. It’s going to be quite intense and powerful.”

Then Jay Hayden, who plays Travis Montgomery, gave away a few more teasers during his conversation with ABC News. And it’s not all doom and gloom moving forward — sort of.

“Someone’s going to die. Someone’s going to get naked — a couple of people get naked,” Hayden said. “And I think some people, emotionally, will be changed forever.”

As always, Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 fans should be worried about their favorite characters. It’s been a while since someone died at Seattle Grace Mercy Death — we mean, Grey Sloan Memorial. So buckle up, because no one is safe.

“There was a time in TV where it didn’t matter what kind of situation the hero was in, they were getting out of it … now, they might not make it,” George told ABC News. “And Shonda [Rhimes] has no fear of making it happen. Whatever’s best for the story.”

Meanwhile, in an interview with Us Weekly, Grey Damon, who plays Lieutenant Jack Gibson, shared details about an upcoming Station 19 death in the next episode.

“In the next episode of Station 19, someone — not who you’d expect — dies,” Damon said. “It’s someone very beloved. Y’all are going to be all messed up about it.”

He continued: “I cried really loud and it’s hard to make me cry. Especially reading — I don’t cry when I read. I did, like, the lip quiver thing. It was pretty bad.”
