New ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Station 19’ Trailer Drops More Clues About Owen When the Shondaland Shows Come Back for the Next Crossover

The new promo trailer for ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 18 Episode 9 and ‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 9 hints whether Owen dies in the next crossover event when the shows come back for the winter premiere.

Attention Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 fans — the wait is almost over. The Shondaland dramas are both coming back in a few weeks for the winter premiere. Now, ABC has dropped a brand new Station 19 Season 5 and Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 promo trailer teasing what’s next when the shows return for episode 9, aka the big crossover event that will reveal whether Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) dies. So here’s a breakdown of the preview.

‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 9 preview shows firefighters trying to save Owen Hunt

The new Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 promo trailer begins with the first half of the next crossover episode. The firefighters meet Seattle’s first female fire chief, Natasha Ross, who is played by Merle Dandridge. She also seems to have a connection with Robert Sullivan (Boris Kodjoe), and Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz) notices it right away. 

Meanwhile, Natasha calls the Station 19 crew into action to help save Owen, who was inside of a car that went over Leon’s Ridge in the winter finale. Ben Warren (Jason George) is also determined to reach his friend. 

Nevertheless, it’s uncertain whether Owen is dead or alive because he would’ve suffered a 100-foot drop. Then Sullivan confirms that a civilian has “no pulse,” indicating that someone dies. But, of course, it could be the driver who died and crashed the car in the winter finale.

As the new Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy crossover teaser continues, the doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial jump into the chaos. Cormac Hayes (Richard Flood), who got out of the car moments before it went over Leon’s Ridge, seems to bring in the organ for Megan Hunt’s (Abigail Spencer) son, Farouk Hunt (Bardia Seiri). Hayes is also seen with Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), and he casually says there was an accident. 

Meanwhile, Teddy Altman (Kim Raver), who also got out of the car in time, tells Hayes that she heard the vehicle fall. She also presses Hayes on what happened in the car, and the pediatric surgeon looks guilty. 

Then the Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 winter premiere trailer manages to squeeze in some romance drama. Atticus “Link” Lincoln (Chris Carmack) confronts Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) about her kiss with Kai Bartley (E.R. Fightmaster). But even so, it’s clear the surgeons have bigger fish to fry. Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) reminds everyone that their friend – Owen – needs their help to live.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ prediction: Is Owen dead?

Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy fans will have to see where all the stories lead in the winter premiere. But whatever happens, we’re not entirely convinced Owen’s dead just yet. 

Hayes’ comments to Meredith seem too casual. Teddy’s also asking him about what happened in the car, which could actually be referencing Owen’s secret. 

Right before the crash, Owen revealed that he gave a veteran the drugs he needed to die, and he asked Hayes to do the same thing for three other soldiers. Now, we don’t think Grey’s Anatomy would continue this storyline with Owen. McKidd’s contract also carries him through season 19. But whatever happens, it’s going to be wild.

When does ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 18 and ‘Station 19’ Season 5 come back with the next episode?
