It took some time, and a traumatic experience in the war, for Owen to take the Chief's offer to join Seattle Grace Hospital as its new trauma attending, but once he did, he got straight to teaching his residents. First lesson—keep your patient alive however you can—and to practice, he brought several anesthetized pigs. Then he promptly stabbed each one. Some residents were shocked (Cristina). Some were horrified (Izzie). Some just thought it was cool (Alex). That was the moment we knew Dr. Owen Hunt was going to bring something new to Seattle Grace, and we wanted more.
