Season 14 of Gray’s Anatomy has been an attention-grabbing one. The lengthy operating medical drama introduced again a misplaced character, noticed a sequence common depart, and has additionally been placing within the groundwork for the upcoming spinoff. The companion sequence will observe a gaggle of firefighters in Seattle, with the 2 exhibits sometimes having crossover occasions and serving to town’s varied emergencies. Gray’s character Ben Warren (Jason George) shall be a sequence common on the untitled spinoff, which means he is as soon as once more altering careers. This has brought on main issues together with his marriage to Chief Bailey, however Gray’s selected to not present the scene the place Ben informed Miranda the unhealthy information. Now we all know why.
As a result of the viewers was forward of Bailey, and when it got here time for me to jot down that scene, each means I attempted to jot down it it felt like outdated information. And I believed the extra attention-grabbing piece of that story was the fallout.
That is most likely a wise selection, as Gray’s Anatomy followers have been aware about Warren’s new profession selection for just a few weeks now. Let’s break down why Krista Vernoff and the Gray’s crew most likely made the precise name.
The information of actor Jason George’s transition from Gray’s Anatomy to the firefighter spinoff got here months in the past, far earlier than the idea was launched on the present. And Warren first informed the viewers (and the male employees) about his second change of careers whereas they have been boozing on Jackson’s boat just a few weeks in the past. So exhibiting Warren break the information to his spouse would have been a bit redundant; it is data that we already know.
That being stated, selecting to maintain the confrontation off display screen does appear a bit awkward, making Warren’s new firefighting goals really feel much more compelled. It is already fairly weird that he is utterly leaping ship from a profession in medication. Warren began off his Gray’s tenure as an anesthesiologist, and needed to persuade Bailey to permit him to modify careers and enter Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital’s surgical intern program. However he finally obtained his means, and has had a blended again of a profession as a surgeon. However now he needs to utterly throw away his years of med college and work as a surgeon to hurry into fires, saving lives a unique means.
It actually would not make a lot sense that Warren is not going to be on Gray’s, contemplating he and Bailey are married and elevating her son Tucker collectively. His absence will little doubt be felt subsequent season, and it must be attention-grabbing to see if the medical drama chooses to separate up the couple. We’ll simply have to attend and see as soon as Gray’s returns from the winter hiatus.
