ABC released a trailer for the “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Station 19” crossover event airing on Nov. 11.
In “Things we Lost in the Fire,” the “Station 19” episode at 8 p.m., Theo (Carlos Miranda) and Vic (Barrett Doss) hit a relationship milestone as Vic deals with her commitment issues, while Dean (Okieriete Onaodowan) considers a new career opportunity as Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz) stays at his home and helps care for Pruitt. The firefighters must also handle a life-changing neighborhood explosion.
In “Bottle Up and Explode!,” the “Grey’s Anatomy” episode at 9 p.m., the Grey Sloan doctors must also work through the explosion, which triggers Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) PTSD, causing his sister Megan (Abigail Spencer) to ask Winston (Anthony Hill) and Hayes (Richard Flood) for support. Meanwhile, in Minnesota, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) meet a familiar face who assists in their study.
The trailer teases that “not everyone will survive” and shows the doctors and firefighters shocked during the explosion, unsure whether they’re experiencing an earthquake or a bomb. Watch the trailer below.
