The hospital may be facing its most dire hour yet on Grey's Anatomy Season 9, and based on the newly released episode synopsis of Season 9, Episode 15: "Hard Bargain" (February 14), things will get worse before they (hopefully) get better.

According to the synopsis, the hospital is spiraling "closer to financial ruin," which means "Owen [Kevin McKidd] must make some tough decisions" — including "foregoing an expensive surgery that could save the life of a child."

Well, that sounds depressing. Of course, this episode airs on Valentine's Day, so there's got to be some romance amidst the misery, right? Um ... kinda.

"Alex [Justin Chambers] and Jo [Camilla Luddington]" — who seem to be growing ever closer — "work together to save the life of an infant" (more chances for Jo to impress Alex, perhaps?), while "April [Sarah Drew] asks Jackson [Jesse Williams] for dating advice." Becausethat's not awkward!
