The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 18 Episode 8 promo hints Owen Hunt and Cormac Hayes might die in a car accident

In the trailer for Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 8, “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” Megan Hunt (Abigail Spencer) cries over her son, Farouk Hunt (Bardia Seiri). Then Winston Ndugu (Anthony Hill) reveals there’s a heart that’s a match for Farouk. So Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) sends Owen to get the heart by car, and Hayes says he wants to go.

In the middle of the transport, the driver appears to have a medical emergency. “Sir, are you OK?” Owen asks before the driver completely passes out, and the car swerves off the road. Then at the end of the teaser, the aftermath of the accident is shown. The car is completely crushed in the middle of the woods. But will anyone end up dead or will everyone survive? We’ll have to wait and see.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ fans on the possibility of Kevin McKidd and Richard Flood leaving because of Owen Hunt and Cormac Hayes’ deaths

Grey’s Anatomy fans will have to watch what happens to Hayes, Owen, and the rest of the Grey Sloan crew. But in July 2020, Deadline reported that McKidd signed a three-year contract to stay on the show, along with Raver and Camilla Luddington (who plays Jo Wilson). So for now, it seems unlikely McKidd will be leaving as Owen right away. However, anything could happen. 

That said, whatever happens in the season 18 winter finale, we know that one person is safe. On Dec. 16, Luddington confirmed that her character isn’t involved in the tragic car accident, and it’s unlikely she will die in the midseason finale.

“Jo is not in the accident tonight,” Luddington told E! News. “But her love life is a car wreck. So that’s an accident waiting to happen.” 

Luddington also confirmed that the accident will impact some of Grey’s Anatomy’s main cast members. Then when asked whether anyone will die in the new episode, the actor played it coy.

“We’re worried every episode. We also get worried,” Luddington said. “You’ll have to wait and see. It’s a massive, massive accident.”
