Thursday’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” saw Ben being suspended for six months after he broke protocol and operated on a pregnant woman without proper surgical equipment. Ben supported his action saying he wanted to save either the mother or the baby, but neither of them survived, and surveillance camera footage showed that Ben had an alternate way to save the duo.
Following this, Miranda was forced to set up a disciplinary committee that decided to suspend Ben. This is sure to affect their relationship going forward as each of them feel betrayed at some level, revealed actor Jason George.
“They have to get trust back on a medical level,” the actor told TVLine. “And then they have to get trust back in terms of the relationship. And then they have to set ground rules for how they continue to work in the same space. And none of that happens quickly, if it happens at all. It’s going to be a long slog for Ben and Bailey.”
Elsewhere in the episode, April and Jackson finally buried the hatchet and she even let him feel their baby kick. However, Callie and Arizona’s relationship headed for a rough patch when Arizona realised that Callie was willing to move to New York City with Penny and take Sofia with her. The episode saw Arizona discussing with April’s lawyer the possibility of fighting for Sofia’s custody.
Interestingly, a good number of fans are on Team Arizona, as they believe Callie shouldn’t assume that Sofia would go with her just because she was the one who gave birth to Sofia.
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays on ABC. Next week’s episode is titled “Trigger Happy,” and it will further explore Callie and Arizona’s strained relationship. The synopsis, according to Wikia, reads: “The doctors work frantically to save a young boy who was accidentally shot. Meanwhile, Arizona is upset when Callie tries to make an important decision about Sofia’s future without consulting her.”
