Spoiler alert! The story contains spoilers for the Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 episode “With a little help from my friends” as well as the teaser for the next episode, “Bottle Up and Explode!”
The most recent episode of Grey’s Anatomy, “With a little help from my friends,” contained some truly heartwarming moments for the surgeons at Gray-Sloan Memorial. Jo gave a pep talk to a single mother and delivered her baby. Within the framework of WebberRevamped teaching program, all residents performed solo surgery without any fatalities. And Addison and Amelie unzipped with some beautiful sister gossip I know Private practice the fans wanted. Well, I hope you all enjoyed the night, as fans just got a double dose of bad news for what’s to come.
The first half of the bad news came after Station 19, who plays before her Seattle sister. The promo for the next episode announced that Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy will take a two-week hiatus before returning on November 11 for a crossover event. The reason for the hiatus is not confirmed, but it is certainly a disappointment to have to wait three weeks for the next episodes. Especially considering what’s going to happen in the Seattle shows.
This brings us to the second part of the bad news. It looks like Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy go disastrous episodes, like the promo that follows Grey’s Anatomy had characters on both sides of the crossover talking about explosions. The most disturbing part was where the promo warned that “Not everyone will survive”. Discover the promo for Station 19episode 5 still untitled and Grey’s Anatomy‘s “Bottle and explode!” ” below:
What jumped out at me is that they don’t indicate which show the “non-survivor” member will come from, which is sure to anger opponents of the crossover events. The shows have drawn the ire of fans in the past for things like explaining huge Station 19 plots on Grey’s Anatomy, but we all understand that the whole point of the crossover is to make you want to watch both shows. It’s like that.
And when they say not everyone will survive, I hate to say that I hope he’s one of the show’s regulars, but I’m totally done with the over-hyped and misleading promos that promise something. huge and then under-livery. Call me naive, but I choose to assume they don’t just mean Random Extra # 4 (no offense to this actor).
Another interesting thing to note about the promo is that at least one explosion seems to be happening on Grey’s Anatomy, with Owen ask: “What was that?” This would apparently happen after Station 19, where we hear Travis say, “There was a second explosion. Could that mean there are more than two? Or will they do some sort of simultaneous timeline? It might be cool, actually.
No matter Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 are considering, we have three weeks to wait and speculate on this. The Seattle shows will return to ABC on November 11, with Station 19 at 8 p.m. ET and Grey’s Anatomy at 21h. Be sure to check out our Fall 2021 TV schedule for all the premieres to come.
