Seattle Grace is in some serious trouble in "Grey's Anatomy" season 9, and that means some tough decisions coming. In fact, Owen will have to make one in episode 15, "Hard Bargain," for which ABC released photos on Wednesday, Jan. 30.
In this "Grey's Anatomy" episode, Constance Zimmer is still around as Alanna Cahill, and the hospital is getting closer to financial ruin. That means Owen (Kevin McKidd) has to make tough decisions, and one of those is foregoing an expensive surgery that could save the life of a child. Also coming up in "Hard Bargain," Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo (Camilla Luddington) work together to save an infant's life. Finally, April (Sarah Drew) is going to ask Jackson (Jesse Williams) for dating advice; does this have anything to do with the paramedic (Justin Bruening) from the last episode?
The "Hard Bargain" photos, which you can check out in the slideshow at the top of this article, offer a look at Owen speaking to the hospital staff, and some are definitely not happy with what he has to say. What other tough decisions will he be making to keep the hospital from shutting down? The images also tease what to expect from Alex and Jo's patient. Will they come up with something that will save the infant?
"Grey's Anatomy" season 9 airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC. What do you think of the latest episodic photos?
