Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "This is Why We Fight" in great detail. Now, TVF's Sean McKenna, Courtney Morrison and Steve Marsi are back for a Q&A discussion of many of the episode's events.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite quote or scene from the episode?
Courtney: I loved when they were talking in the car and Derek's financial guy popped his head out. Callie's reaction was priceless!
Sean: I actually enjoyed the final scene when it was revealed that Jackson would be in charge. That's going to put a whole new spin on the show that hopefully will prove to be interesting. Jackson was definitely shocked.
Steve: Gonna have to go with Alex's tumor in a bag surgery, in general. Don't know about anyone else but his growth as a character has been a highlight of the show for me in recent seasons.
2. Did you think something was brewing between Hunt and Cahill in the early part of the hour?
Courtney: I definitely did! Why is she calling him at 3 a.m. about this sale? Some things are just inappropriate...
Sean: I did, and I thought that originally because she hadn't lied to him, something might have happened. Yet, even she kept stuff behind his back while Cristina came clean.
Steve: That was definitely the implication, I thought, but it's been hard to get a read on her from the beginning. That whole situation has felt as though there's more to it for awhile.
3. Is having the Harper Avery Foundation be the backer to the hospital a good idea or bad?
Courtney: I don't know if it's good or bad but it will definitely make for some drama! Catherine will be around, Jackson will be on the board, and the gang will be owners of the hospital. It's bound to get messy!
Sean: I totally agree about it getting messy, but hopefully it gives us some good drama from it. Plus, having Jackson and his mom sort of in charge will not be a smooth sailing ship for the hospital.
Steve: Well they were just about out of options, so it's going to have to be! As far as whether it's good for storytelling, I say yes, given Jackson and Catherine's enhanced roles going forward.
4. Who is really the heart of the hospital?
Courtney: If I can pick a couple, I'm going with the core group from the beginning. Meredith, Cristina, and Alex. If only one, It's Meredith.
Sean: Good question. I think on some level, all of the characters have heart when it comes to the hospital. I guess if I had to pick one, I'd pick Richard. There's just something about him that manages to keep the peace and bring everyone together.
Steve: Agree with both of my colleagues. The core group of interns still around from Grey's Anatomy Season 1 feel like the nucleus in a sense, while Richard has always felt like the father figure of the whole show.
5. How will the other doctors react when they realize who is buying the hospital?
Courtney: Not good! I'm sensing Bailey is going to be pissed!!
Sean: People are not going to be happy. Heck, Jackson didn't look happy! I'm sure there will be both drama and humor from the whole situation.
Steve: Let's just say I'd tell Bailey via email Friday afternoon and then duck out the back door for the weekend.
