There was good news and bad news during Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy. Let's start with the good news: Bailey gets to keep her job!
After three of her patients showed up with mysterious post-operation infections, the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital board members decided to call the CDC to investigate the source. After two of the patients died, Bailey was sidelined as the CDC attempted to figure out how this all happened. Unfortunately, during this time, the rest of the hospital could not outwardly show their support for the stalwart doc, with her longtime mentor Richard even blaming her to the third patient's parents in order to get him into surgery — something Bailey inadvertently heard.
The CDC was able to determine that the infection did start with Bailey, but it was only spread due to the gloves that were being used during the Pegasus era. In other words, if it weren't for the inept Pegasus, everything would've been OK. It's never quite explained how Bailey contracted the infection, but she'll be treated and sent back to work in no time.
Now the bad news: Bailey knows exactly who supported her, or rather, who didn't during this stressful time, in which she truly thought she could lose her job. In particular, it was most hurtful that Richard was not there for her considering she spent years making excuses for him when he was doing surgeries while drunk or blowing off his wife Adele.
Elsewhere at the hospital, Meredith finally got Cristina to agree to be present when she gives birth, even if that means she'll witness Mer poop on the table. Alex finally admitted his love for Jo, but didn't realize until after he had damaged their relationship by telling Pecwell that she was on her own while she was growing up. April and Matthew also decided to get back together, but we'll just be waiting until she realizes that Jackson is her person. And lastly, Cristina figured out that she's likely going to lose Owen once again since it's clear that he really wants children. Dun. Dun. Dunnn!
