Why Isn't Bailey the New Chief on Grey's Anatomy?

at . Comments

What effect will the surprising revelation that Owen will soon become the new chief on Grey's Anatomy have on Bailey, long believed to be Richard's future replacement?

Kevin McKidd thinks she's more disappointed in Richard than anything.


Of course, "Her anger with the Chief for resigning is all dumped on Owen," the actor who plays the new chief, Kevin McKidd, tells TV Guide. "She has to respect his decision."

"He feels it's time to retire and to hand over that power to somebody else."

"Maybe she is upset that it isn't her that's Chief, but I think it's more to do with her anger at Webber because she's going to miss him."

@ MerDer4ever, I agree that they should get attention because they may be their final season but i disagree with you when you say that the show is all about them. It may have started that way, but it has grown into a larger ensemble cast and people work just as hard as they do and should also get attention. I guess in short, there should be balance. Im actually worried that Callie and Arizona are going to be ignored this season because that's usually what happends when couples get married on the show.


Baily did not get the chief position because for what it looks like with the posible leave of Pompeo and Patrick Shonda its going to turn Greys Anatomy in the Cristina and Owen show! I think thats why they are getting so much publicity, I mean most of the spoiler we had been getting are about Owen and Cristina. I just hope that Shonda focus more on Meredith and Dereck. We havent had much of them. Season 5 was all about Izzys cancer,Season 6 was all about Lexie love triangle with Mark and Alex, and Owen PTSD problem,the first half of Season 7 was focus on Cristinas PTSD crap and the second half in the disaster of the baby SL. For the look of thing looks like MerDer fans wont get a lot of them this season neither, and Shonda once again will focus on Cristina and Owen SL. I think the probloem with this show arent the character, the problem with this show its the bad writting of the recent SL. I just hope that Shonda focus a lot more on MerDer this season the show its about them afte all. Because Im tired of them been in the back of the others characters.


Bailey for chief, let's start a petition lol.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
