Review Quotes


In the aftermath of Ben's renegade surgery, Bailey decides to convene an "advisory panel" to suss out the truth of what went down. Webber initially isn't impressed with her decision to not handle things directly, but she stands up to him. After re-interviewing all the docs involved (including some extreme scrutiny of Riggs on Owen's part), Hunt, Maggie, and Grey decide that Ben was telling the truth when he said that he didn't register the lockdown ending because he was so focused on his patient. The whole ordeal has put a lot of stress on Bailey and Ben's marriage, even as they try to compartmentalize home life and work life. Bailey ends up suspending Ben from the program for six months, and when he goes to get begging to have his punishment reduced, she tells him that it already has been -- she wanted to flat out fire him, but the panel's opinion changed her mind.

Amelia reprimands her for it, saying the hospital should respect his family's wishes and that Omar is brain dead with no hope of recovery. Later, he wakes up, a total miracle, and the family is reunited.

He tells her that in reviewing their papers, he's reminded that they both cared about each other and were best friends. He doesn't like the way he's been acting. After his demonstration of friendship, April has him feel the baby kicking, a sign that this child will be fine and not suffer like Samuel did.
