Warning: Potential spoilers ahead.

Fans had an absolute meltdown last week when Grey鈥檚 Anatomy previewed a potentially serious medical situation for Dr. Miranda Bailey, even hinting that the beloved character might die. (The reaction from people on Twitter was, in short: No. Nope. No.)

Since then, viewers have been desperate to find out anything they can about Bailey鈥檚 fate. Chandra Wilson, who plays the character, addressed the rumors in a new interview, but she鈥檚 not exactly easing our fears.

鈥淟et鈥檚 say Bailey has been stressed,鈥 Wilson told Entertainment Weekly when asked about Bailey鈥檚 fate. Not wanting to offer up any major spoilers, she added, 鈥淚s Bailey leaving? I think this is the right thing to say: Bailey鈥檚 been stressed and needs to take care of herself.鈥 That鈥檚 not a yes, but it鈥檚 not a no, either.

TOMORROW. #GreysAnatomy

For now, the 48-year-old wants fans to focus on another aspect of the story-line, which was loosely inspired by the cancer diagnosis of the episode鈥檚 writer Elisabeth R. Finch. According to Wilson, Bailey鈥檚 health scare is meant to highlight the fact that women鈥檚 medical issues often go ignored or are misdiagnosed.

鈥淲hat we really wanted to talk about in this episode, especially for women, is heart disease, how it manifests, how much of a killer of women it is, and how to be taken seriously when you walk into an emergency room situation so that you can be properly diagnosed and properly treated,鈥 she explained to EW. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 the thing that was always at the forefront of each of the scenes that we went into, and the performance, as well as the conversations that Bailey was having with each of the characters.鈥

Wilson also told EW that the episode offers up more information about Bailey鈥檚 childhood, which will apparently be rather enlightening.

鈥淭here are things that get revealed in this episode about Bailey鈥檚 upbringing that make you understand the person that you鈥檝e been seeing since the pilot,鈥 Wilson said. 鈥淲here she鈥檚 coming from, why she behaves the way she behaves, the kind of relationships that she has with her family, the kind of relationships she has with patients, the driven, professional woman that she is 鈥 you get a glimpse of where the seed of her comes from.鈥

Bailey鈥檚 fate will be revealed when Grey鈥檚 Anatomy airs tonight at 8pm ET on ABC.
