In “Readiness Is All,” airing May 9, ABC’s official synopsis reads, “The doctors prepare for a super storm heading towards Seattle; Owen’s desire to be a parent gets stronger as he becomes closer to Ethan; and one wrong move puts the lives of Meredith and her baby in jeopardy. Meanwhile, Jo looks to Alex for help in a moment of crisis, and one doctor gets the shock of her life.” (Regarding the Owen/Ethan storyline, you’ll spy All My Children alumna Jennifer Bassey here guesting as the nearly orphaned lad’s obviously distraught grandmother.)
