'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 12: Why was Bailey accused of ‘scam’ as Winston gets pulled over by cops?
Bailey and Mabel treated a Mr Anderson who slammed the Covid-19 test because 'I know it’s a scam'
Between Covid and 'Black Lives Matters' protests, there is certainly a thrill a minute at 'Grey Sloan Memorial' in the latest episode. Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) and Winston Ndugu (Anthony Hill) in particular seem to have chosen perhaps the worst possible time to start a new life together. Winston has a long drive down from Boston to Seattle to start the process of moving in with Maggie, but on the way, gets pulled over by the police who refuse to let Winston remain on the phone. A distraught Maggie then can't get through to Winston.
Fans were feeling Maggie's stress and were figuratively shouting at the screen.
One fan tweeted, "WINSTON CALL THE COP OUT!!!!!!!! #greys @GreysABC."
Winston finally calls Maggie back, but he's traumatized. His whole car has been upturned and a police dog has sniffed through all his belongings. Maggie rather poignantly asks him to breathe considering the subject matter of the episode. Fans were feeling Winston's pain and shock. One fan tweeted, "Say it with me. He didn’t do anything wrong, he didn’t deserve this. #GreysAnatomy "
Another fan tweeted, "This is disgusting and so heart breaking. BLACK LIVES MATTER TODAY, TOMORROW, AND FOREVER. #greysanatomy "
Now that Winston seems at least physically fine, the big question fans had was what was leading to Bailey's big meltdown that we saw in the trailer.
In spite of all that is happening in the world, Bailey (Chandra Wilson) has a patient, Mr Anderson (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) who doesn't believe in Covid-19 and insists on pulling down his mask and disregarding what the doctors tell him. He tells Bailey that Covid-19 is a scam and just a big money-making scheme. He asks Bailey how she gets her cut, does she get a flat fee for every case she diagnoses. This is when Bailey goes into the stairwell and says 'What what what?' shocked that someone can think like this.
Fans of the show were feeling Bailey's frustration. One fan tweeted, "JUST PULL UP YOUR MASK ITS NOT THAT HARD!!!! #greys #greysanatomy #GreysDay." One fan tweeted, "Bailey just let him leave... it’s natural selection he needs to go #greysanatomy." Another fan tweeted, "Literally just let him die. natural selection. #GreysAnatomy "
Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) looks at all the brave people protesting around him, especially Dr Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr) and a protester who was at Dr King's 'I Have A Dream' rally in 1963 played by the iconic Phylicia Rashad. Jackson is tired of simply throwing his money at every problem, he wants the actual scars of protest. At the end of the episode we see Jackson getting into his car and keying in a destination which is eleven hours away, which left fans wondering where he is headed.
One fan tweeted, "A trip that takes 11 hours. Where tf is Jackson going?? To see April maybe #GreysAnatomy."
Others felt that it wasn't April Kepner (Sarah Drew), but his father Jackson is going to see, to get the inspiration he needs to take his fervor for protesting forward. This is especially since his mother Catherine has been dismissive of Jackson's need to make a true change. One fan tweeted, "Meredith still on the beach, Jackson finna go see his father, probably gone get pulled over.... omfg #GreysAnatomy "
To find out where Jackson is headed, tune into the latest episodes of 'Grey's Anatomy' on Thursdays at 9 PM on ABC.
