There’s a baby boom going on right about now at Grey Sloan Memorial.
Thursday’s episode of this long in the tooth ABC introduced another pregnancy into the mix.
Bailey is the second series regular character to be revealed as pregnant, mere weeks after we learned that Amelia was with child.
Given that this series loves to give fans all the feels, it’s difficult to imagine both of these pregnancies being smooth sailing.
But how did Bailey learn about her own pregnancy?
Well, she had the day from hell. Meredith got interviewed by a publication, and her words were twisted.
It sounded like a smear campaign against Grey Sloan Memorial, and all of Grey’s former colleagues were up in arms about it.
For her part, Mer felt terrible and decided to put her freedom at risk to get her point across. Instead of completing community service, she returned to the hospital to let Bailey know everything was taken out of context.
But Bailey was done with her and their friendship.
“I made you study. I made you practice. I was your friend, your mentor and overtime. You needed me, I was there. You can sit there and apologize to me and say all the moving words but the damage has been done,” Bailey said.
That was enough for Grey to leave the hospital, but not before she ran into her boyfriend Deluca.
They got into it over Mer ditching community service because she could be sent to jail, but the former surgeon wasn’t in the mood to be talked down to.
“I don’t need this,” she said to him.
“If you think there’s a world where I just sit back when everything’s broken and hurting people and killing people, you don’t really know me at all.”
The fate of their relationship was left very much up in the air.
As for Bailey, she gave Deluca the Chief Residents’ job, saying that he can fix his girlfriend’s mess, but nobody was happy to have him there.
Bailey ultimately worried that she was having a heart attack, just years after the big scare that almost ended her life.
She turned to Maggie, who ran some tests and revealed that Bailey was perimenopausal and pregnant.
“I heard you, I just don’t understand,” Bailey said.
Elsewhere, Koracick wanted to fix the image of the hospital, and he tried to do so by recording a surgery on a child pro bono.
Jackson did not want cameras in the operating rooms, so he shut it down. He bickered with Tom about it and ultimately told Tom that he was his boss as he owned part of the hospital.
The camera was shut down, and Jackson took on the surgery.
Speaking of Tom, he dropped his order for Owen to stay away from him, but the damage was done.
Owen had agreed to move to Pac North with Alex and Richard.
