    Stella,

    The bien here has the meaning of really. It is often used in sentences such as, c'est bien la bonne clé, which in this case means, is it really the right key?

    The most accurate translation of it here is perhaps "indeed", but "really" is, I figured, a more likely register if this was to be said in English. :)
