Grey's Anatomy Season 8 ended with most characters' fates up in the air. However, one doc who we know is safe, sound, and planning on staying at Seattle Grace-Mercy West is Bailey (Chanda Wilson). But that doesn't mean we're not interested in thinking about what will happen to our favorite hardass doc.

So here are some things we're hoping to see from Bailey during Season 9.

Navigating her way to a happy ending. Now that Bailey and Ben have agreed to get engaged despite his new job, we're hoping to see a happy ending for these two — but we don't want it to come too easily. This is Grey's, after all! We hope Bailey's relationship is given the attention it deserves as they try to navigate their new life together...

And maybe even a wedding. But come on, it's high time for another Grey's wedding! We're hoping to see Bailey tie the knot by the end of the season.

Even more of a leadership role. With the devastation that is sure to hit Seattle Grace-Mercy West post-Lexie's (Chyler Leigh) death, we hope to see Bailey's cool head prevail. We could totally see her stepping up and helping hold the hospital together in a time of internal chaos.

What do you want for Bailey next season? Let us know in the comments below!
