Grey's Anatomy is on a short hiatus, but when it returns, we'll need to prepare for a massive explosion.

Grey's Anatomy Season 18 Episode 5, airing Thursday, November 11 at 10 p.m., find the doctors pushed in unpredictable directions when an explosion hits too close to home.

"The Grey Sloan doctors spring into action after an explosion rocks Seattle, with the incoming trauma hitting close to home," reads the logline.

Minnesota Mer - Grey's Anatomy

"Owen experiences PTSD after he hears the explosion, while his sister Megan enlists help from Winston and Hayes in confidence. In Minnesota, Meredith and Amelia meet up with a familiar face who assists in their study."

Sounds like an exciting installment, right?

ABC also released some first-look photos that show Meredith is well and truly in Minnesota.

That means she'll be meeting up with Nick, all while trying to make the biggest break of her career as she helps Alan.

The show has had Meredith living in two cities as she tries to keep her commitments to both Grey Sloan Memorial and Alan.

Meredith and Nick crossed paths recently by chance, and the sparks continued to fly the moment they met back up.

This episode also serves as the second part of a crossover with Station 19.

"When Theo and Vic hit a relationship milestone, Vic is forced to reckon with her feelings about commitment," reads the tease for Station 19 Season 5 Episode 5. 

"Andy takes refuge at Dean’s home and helps care for Pruitt, while Dean considers a new potential career opportunity. Meanwhile, an explosion rips apart a neighborhood and changes the lives of our firefighters forever."

With Grey's Anatomy teasing the fire hitting close to home, could it be possible that Ben will be harmed?

He's the strongest link between the two shows because he started his journey on Grey's Anatomy.

The promo also heavily suggests it could be Ben, but these shows know how to mess with us!

Whatever happens, we'll be tuning in to find out!

But we shouldn't expect any more Addison ... for now. Kate Walsh's two-episode stint came to an end last week, but it felt very open-ended, so we could see her again sometime.

Alas, have a look at the full teaser for the episode below.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
