Despite all the doom and gloom on the Grey's Anatomy Season 8 finale (Season 8, Episode 24, "Flight"), what with Lexie’s (Chyler Leigh) death and the uncertainty surrounding Mark (Eric Dane) and Arizona’s (Jessica Capshaw) survival, it’s nice to know that at least one couple on the show has a joyful storyline coming up.

TV Guide reports that Bailey’s (Chanda Wilson) engagement to Ben (Jason George) will go forward. Even though Jason has a role on ABC’s upcoming soap Mistresses, there are no plans to wean him away from Grey’s. As TVG says, “Ben and Bailey are engaged! After Lexie’s death, the show will need at least a little happiness.”

For one thing, Mistresses is a midseason pick-up, meaning we won’t get to see the premiere until sometime in 2013. Second, Mistresses and Grey’s are both filmed on the ABC Disney lot, so even if Jason has major roles on both shows, he’ll be just a hop, skip, and a jump from either set!

We’re excited to see Bailey finally get some peace and love in her life.

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
