Bailey (Chandra Wilson) may wanna get the phone number for Callie's defense attorney — because she may be facing a lawsuit from the parents of bubble boy Braden Morris (Armani Jackson) on Grey's Anatomy.
Here's what we know for sure. The synopsis for the episode airing on May 8 — Season 10, Episode 23: "Everything I Try to Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right" — teases that Bailey "deals with ramifications of her actions" during that installment.
Now, casting sides for that same episode call for a guest star to play a lawyer who talks with two doctors about a potential lawsuit around one patient's case.
The casting sides, posted to Television Without Pity, are encrypted to foil us spoiler hounds — but let's assume for the sake of argument that "Dr. Juarez" is Bailey.
"Dr. Matthews sits on one side of the table and Dr. Juarez and a lawyer on the other," the casting sides read. "The lawyer asks Dr. Matthews if they threatened with legal action. Dr. Matthews replies they said they wanted to sue. The lawyer wants to be clear and asks if the parents authorized the procedure. Dr. Matthews says yes. The lawyer says they then told Dr. Schwartz that they changed their mind. Dr. Matthews says yes."
Now consider that Braden's parents just authorized Bailey to infect Braden with an ostensibly-benign variant of HIV so that the virus will carry a vital enzyme around Braden's body — in an attempt to treat his severe combined immunodeficiency.
One episode before this one — Season 10, Episode 22: "We Are Never Getting Back Together" — Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) will realize "the truth about Bailey's bubble boy case," according to that episode's synopsis.
Is this "truth" that Bailey's HIV idea backfired — or perhaps that the HIV wasn't as benign as Bailey thought?
What do you think of this logic? Are you convinced? Do you have a different idea? Sound off in the comments below!
