Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down the latest episode of the long-running show in great detail. Now, TVF's Courtney Morrison, Christina Tran and Steve Marsi are back for a Q&A discussion.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
Christina: I have to go with every word that came out of Cristina’s mouth. She’s come a long way and I loved when she was torturing Alex about his sex life. I seriously LOL’ed when she said: “Does she ever sleep with you? Did you guys have sex and it was awful? Was she awful? Were you awful and now you're so ashamed you can't even look at her? Was it weird? Is she a man? Oh, secret penis?!”
Courtney: I loved the scenes between Alex and Cristina. Especially when she asked if he would braid her hair after surgery!
Steve: Hands down agreed with Christina and her Grey's namesake. That rapid-fire interrogation was so awesome. I also liked seeing Derek and Meredith with the newborn. I can vouch for the fact that even the most attentive dads have it easier than the moms when it comes to power napping.
2. Weigh in on what Richard said to Meredith about her making the wrong choice and how he chose the wrong person.
Christina: Like I mentioned in my review, it was cold and harsh. Poor Meredith! Oddly though, I get it. Life has thrown Richard some terrible curveballs lately. It’s no wonder he’s breaking down and feeling so angry. However, does it give him a right to say what he said to Meredith? Absolutely not!
Courtney: I get what Richard was saying. He's just been through a trauma, he's battered and beat down. He can't even eat. He's angry. He may have said those things, but he doesn't mean them. Meredith is like his daughter and always will be.
Steve: That seemed a bit out of character for Richard. Not that I don't understand why he said that or the impact of what he's been through, but his history with Meredith and the fact that she obviously did what she thought was right in an impossibly difficult situation should trump all that - at least I would think.
3. Who’s your favorite intern right now?
Christina: We haven’t seen very much of her in the OR this season yet, but I really like Jo. Now that Jolex has sealed the deal, it’s time for her to step it up at the hospital.
Courtney: Jo. No questions asked.
Steve: Jo, and not just because I crush on her. She always has some great scenes lately.
4. Which do you care more about: April passing her boards or seeing Shane make a difference after what happened last week?
Christina: If I had to choose, I’ll go with the latter. I still think that what happened with Heather needs to come to surface though and can’t imagine that he’s guilt-free already.
Courtney: I want both to do well. I like Shane a lot but April has really grown on me over the past few seasons.
Steve: On the basis of this one episode, Shane. But like Courtney I find April growing on me. Even when I find her annoying it's that realistic, half-endearing kind of annoying. Hard not to root for her.
5. We know that Cristina is out after this season. If the other originals follow suit, which character would you miss the most?
Christina: Easy. Meredith! She is the show.
Courtney: Meredith, of course. Her and Derek are a package deal. If either left, it would ruin things for me.
Steve: Any of the originals would be missed. Meredith feels like the most integral, since it was kind of "her" show from the onset, but Alex, Derek, and even Calzona have become so vital.
