Like many fictional couples who got their start on Grey’s
Anatomy, Miranda Bailey and Ben Warren have faced a fair amount of
obstacles throughout their relationship. However, their fight
during last Thursday night’s episode of Station 19 made it clear
that their marriage could be in real jeopardy. So
will Bailey and Ben get a divorce on Grey’s Anatomy? This
usually solid couple is gearing up to face their biggest hurdle
The fight that took place was something that’s been on the
horizon for quite some time now. For weeks,
Bailey has made mention on Grey’s how much stress and anxiety
she’s been feeling lately. It’s why she opted to cut back on her
surgeries and temporarily step down as Chief of Surgery at Grey
Sloan Memorial. And yet, even after taking all of those
precautions, she still felt anxious and worried all the time.
That’s when she began to realize that it wasn’t her workload she
was so stressed about it was her husband’s high risk job as a
Ben lays his life on the line for people every day by going into
burning buildings and placing himself in dangerous scenarios.
That’s because he’s a good man who wants to save lives, but in
doing so, it’s unintentionally caused a major upset in his wife’s
life. If he doesn’t text her back after a certain point throughout
the day, she worries that something’s happened to him and it’s
eating her away to the point where she needed to make her feelings
This decision to confront Ben came even more urgent after Bailey
discovered a document from her insurance company that had a set
benefit policy in place for her in case Ben died while out on the
job. Add that onto his failure to respond to her text messages and
it all boiled over, bringing Bailey to an unexpected
“I love you so much Benjamin Warren, so much… I feel like the
two of us are so strong. We’ve gone through so much together and I
know we can get through this too,” Bailey explained. “I need a
sabbatical, I need to lower my stress… I can’t spend every day
wondering you’re OK… I feel like maybe I can put myself together
if we take… a break from our marriage.”
And while Bailey made it clear that this in no way meant that
their marriage or relationship is over in any way, Ben told her
that he believed that, if they do this, it’s “the first step on the
road to divorce,” which is not what either of them wants. But
firm in her sabbatical idea, knowing that she needs to take
some time away for herself in order to feel better. Because if
she’s not expecting him to come home, she won’t be worried about
him coming home.
“I can’t breathe,” she told him during a heartbreaking speech.
“My heart raises and I don’t feel like myself. I’m afraid being
married to you when you put your life on the line every single day,
I’m scared it could kill me… I love you but worrying about you,
you are literally breaking my heart.”
And with that, Ben grabs some of his things and left (for the
time being), but not before giving her a big kiss goodbye. So will
this decision prove Ben right and eventually result in divorce?
It’s hard to tell. Since he told her that he wanted to become a
firefighter, it’s been a point of contention.
Jason George, who plays Ben, told Bustle just before the
Station 19 premiere that Ben and Bailey will have their troubles,
but ultimately find their way together. Let’s hope so.
The fact that Bailey was so honest with Ben about how she was
feeling proves that they stand a good chance of making it through
this. Openness and honesty are the cornerstones of any solid
marriage and because they both listened to each other and truly
want to make it work, then they just may be able to overcome this
hurdle after all. If any duo can make it, it’s these two.
