Life is always tense at Seattle Grace, but tonight's Grey's Anatomy sneak peek and promo are just plain unsettling.
On tonight's Grey's Anatomy: "Dark Was the Night", Teddy (Kim Raver) puts Henry's (Scott Foley) life in Cristina's (Sandra Oh) hands, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) gets news on Zola and something horrible happens. Check out two sneak peek clips and one alarming promo below.
Meredith and Derek have spent the fall waiting for news on Zola, and they're finally going to get it. From the looks of the promo, however, it may be too late.

Last week's episode ended with Henry spitting up blood and this week he'll go back under the knife. As you see in the clip above, Teddy insists cold-blooded Cristina is the perfect surgeon for the job. When the other doctors balk, Teddy tells them not to let Cristina know who her patient is.
GREY'S ANATOMY SNEAK PEEK: Cocky Cristina
Teddy's reasoning makes perfect sense, but with someone as single-minded and cocky as Cristina, the lie of omission might just backfire on everyone, as you can see in this final Grey's Anatomy sneak peek:
