ABC has released promotional photos for the third episode of Grey's Anatomy's ninth season, "Love the One You're With." In it, Steven Culp debuts as Dr. Parker, a doctor working closely with Cristina.
For how long is an open question.
According to the official episode synopsis, "the survivors from the crash are asked to make an almost impossible decision that will affect the rest of their lives." Gulp.
Meanwhile, "tension grows between Jackson and April after they're forced to work together, and Alex tries to restrain himself with one of the interns." Sounds intense.
The episode airs Thursday, October 18 (the show is off October 11 due to the vice presidential debate).
