'Station 19' Season 4 Episode 14: Why is Bailey not with Ben during cancer surgery? Andy's presence puzzles fans
Fans wonder whether Andy is also in the hospital because she is pregnant
The last episode of 'Station 19' was an emotional one that saw Benjamin Warren (Jason George) and Dean Miller (Okieriete Onaodowan) struggling to keep afloat in the icy cold water, in an attempt to rescue the fire chief who had fallen overboard from a cruise ship. The life and death situation led Ben and Dean to reassess their life choices. Ben confides in Dean that a tumor has been detected in his testicle and he has been advised to get surgery but he has been stalling the surgery. Dean, on the other hand, confides in Ben about his true feelings for Vic (Barrett Doss) and how he is in love with her.
But while it may seem crystal clear what is important when faced with your mortality, do those decisions hold up when the day to day grind sets in. In the trailer for the upcoming episode, fans are not loving the look of fear and doubt on Ben's face as he prepares for the surgery he decided to face when in the icy cold water with Dean.
One fan on YouTube said, "Why does Ben look like that at the end? Don't tell me he is going to be awake but paralyzed for his surgery... :o"
Others were trying to figure out why it's Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz) who is at Ben's side and not Dr Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson). One fan on YouTube said, "Ok side note from Marina, does anyone wonder why they show Andy at the hospital. Like Ben is having his surgery and with COVID protocols it’s more likely that Bailey will be the only one allowed in, so why is Andy there? Is she there for another reason? Is she pregnant?!?!"
Another fan about Andy's presence at Ben's bedside on YouTube said, "Ok I just think that one reason that andy is at the hospital is because she saw her dad die from this cancer and she wants to be there to support Ben."
Fans also couldn't understand why not just Bailey but Dr Catherine Fox (Debbie Allen) was not at Ben's side, considering this is her area of expertise. One fan on YouTube said, "Why is he not getting the surgery by Catherine fox... wouldn’t they want the best to do the surgery."
