Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11 Recap: (Don’t Fear) the Reaper

Miranda Bailey is the glue that keeps all of the characters together on Grey’s Anatomy. 

During Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11, the character found herself at death’s door multiple times. 

When the episode got underway, all was right in the world of Miranda. She was dropping her kid off at school, driving to work with Ben, and she was still very much against Ben’s new job. 

ICYMI: Ben is heading to the new Grey’s Anatomy spinoff, Station 19. Thus, he will be a firefighter in the original series. 

Miranda has struggled with this because she is worried that he goes to work and does not come home. It makes sense, right?

Just when Ben started talking about his day, Miranda checked out and ordered Ben to let her out of the vehicle. 

It was bizarre, but we quickly found out the exact reason for her behavior. She made her way to another hospital with symptoms of a heart attack. 

If you watch Grey’s Anatomy online, you will already know that Bailey is one of the best in her field, so she knew what she was was right.

Nobody seemed to want to agree that she was taking a heart attack and kept ushering her out of the way. 

Then, Dr. Maxwell appeared and wanted to rule it as a mental issue as opposed to a physical issue and ordered a psychiatrist. 

Bailey then decided enough was enough and told Maggie to visit her because she needed help. 

Maggie arrived, along with Richard who knew there was something wrong because Bailey had never taken a day off. 

Fresh off saving the life of the patient next to her, Bailey collapsed. This was confirmation enough for Dr. Maxwell. 

After the blockage in her artery was dealt with, Bailey’s pressure started dropping, and it emerged that the deluded Dr. Maxwell had failed to order some follow-up treatment. 

Maggie had had enough and demanded to be allowed to perform the surgery. Maxwell agreed because what else could he do?

Bailey realized it was time to let Ben in and she got Maggie to call him. Ben made a run straight to the hospital. 

Bailey survived her ordeal, and in the aftermath, Ben said he had quit his new job. Bailey admitted that her stance had changed on it. 

Life is too precious to waste doing anything less than what makes us happy,” she said to her lover. 

Peppered throughout the hour were flashbacks of Bailey growing up and the struggle she faced moving out of her home. 

Her mother was always worried about Bailey getting in trouble, and that was because her sister died at just two months old. 

It was a poignant episode that was great at educating the audience about heart attacks. 

What did you think of it?

Sound off below!

Grey’s Anatomy continues next Thursday on ABC. 


Donald Trump: Pissed at SNL For Portraying Steve Bannon as Grim Reaper?

There was a time not all that long ago, when the idea of an American president venting his outrage toward a late night sketch comedy show for depicting him in an unflattering light would’ve been absolutely absurd.

We call that time “the entirety of American history prior to January 20, 2017.”

(In fairness, there were no sketch comedy shows during most of that period, but we imagine the Founding Fathers suppressed the urge to get upset over particularly droll etchings or something.)

As you’ve probably heard, President Trump is feuding with SNL because we’re living in some heavy-handed satirist’s version of America, in which the president gets all pissy when comedians make fun of him and then takes to social media to tell the world about it.

One of the many reasons sane world leaders avoid that sort of behavior is because it gives the impression of instability and discord.

Ironically, It seems much of the reason Trump dislikes SNL’s skewering of his administration is that he feels the show’s depictions make his staff appear “weak.”

The Washington Post reports today:

Aides said they strive to avoid appearing “weak” or “low­ energy” — two of Trump’s least favorite attributes.”

“Staffers buzz privately about who is up and who is down, with many eagerly gossiping about which poor colleague gets an unflattering portrayal on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

“For the past two weeks, it has been White House press secretary Sean Spicer. But aides said Trump was especially upset by a sketch that cast White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon as the Grim Reaper manipulating the president — who was ultimately relegated to a miniature desk, playing dolefully with an expandable toy.

Yes, as hilariously cutting as Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer impression has been, it seems Trump might be even more irate about the depiction of Steve Bannon as the Grim Reaper.

Which really doesn’t make much sense …

Trump is concerned about his staff looking week, but his top adviser has obtained so much power since the inauguration that the Internet has taken to referring to him as President Bannon.

Not only that, Bannon is a man who equates evil with power:

“Darkness is good,” the man actually told The Hollywood Reporter in a November interview. “Dick Cheney, Darth Vader, Satan. That’s power.”

Also, he appeared on the cover of Time magazine looking like this:

At first, we were in favor of SNL changing tactics and going with Rosie O’Donnell as Bannon, because we figured it would piss that sickly Nazi off even more.

But now that we know how much Trump hates the reaper, we encourage SNL to not fear that approach.

Also, more cowbell…
