Bailey tells her fellow doctors that Ben isn’t answering her calls.

The end of the teaser for Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 5 also confirms that not everyone will survive the bombing. And we’re predicting that it could be Ben.

The recent installment showed how busy Bailey is and how dedicated she is to her work. So, it would be interesting to see how she would handle her job after Ben dies.

Fans of Grey’s Anatomy have not seen Ben in the series for quite some time because he’s now part of Station 19. So, in some ways, Bailey and Ben do not always share screentime.

If Ben is killed off, his death may have at least one similarity with Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) death.

When Derek died in Grey’s Anatomy Season 11, his ex-wife, Addison (Kate Walsh), was no longer working at the then-Seattle Grace Hospital.

Addison was already appearing in Private Practice at the time. So, the character was only featured crying hysterically after learning about Derek’s passing. Addison did not reunite with Derek’s fellow doctors at the time.

A similar thing may happen between Bailey and Ben since they are no longer part of the same show.

However, since Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 5 is another crossover installment, this could be the last time that Bailey and Ben will be seen together.

Another character may be killed off during the upcoming crossover event between Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 and Station 19 Season 5.

And it seems more acceptable if someone from the latter will die. After all, the doctors from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital doctor just went through a difficult time due to COVID-19, and they are still recovering from the pandemic.

Many things happened in Grey’s Anatomy Season 18, starting with Webber’s decision to ask Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Bailey to help him with the interns.

The Webber Method was a success because the interns proved themselves worthy of becoming future residents at the hospital.

In the episode titled With a Little Help from My Friends, Addison and Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) had a heart-to-heart conversation about the former’s patient, the latter’s relationship with Link (Chris Carmack), and her previous battle with alcohol and drug addiction.

Addison and Amelia managed to save the former’s patient that suffered from complications post-surgery.

During their conversation, Amelia explained to Addison why she decided to call it quits with Link. She said that being with Link made her think of her past struggles. And the more times that Link proposed to her, the more she realized that having more kids or staying with him wasn’t what she wanted.

Before Addison left the hospital, Amelia told her that she no longer thinks about drugs and alcohol. And Addison was impressed. Before she shut the elevator door, she told Amelia that she was all grown up.

Nick will serve as Meredith’s newest love interest on the show. And the two characters are expected to share more screentime because Speedman was cast as a series regular in Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 last month.

As of late, it’s still unclear if Speedman will return to Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 because ABC has not renewed the medical drama.
