Round Table: "Time Has Come Today"
This week on the Round Table, Izzie grieves, Callie cooks, and mostly-unnecessary blasts from the past are all the rage. Our esteemed panel weighs in on last night's episode...
Why the heck is Finn's hat in any Meredith-related ring?
McCritic: Because it lost a bet? I have no idea. Meredith can be sweet and all - but between the hysterics, and obvious parallel, over Doc being put to sleep and then, you know, the sex with Derek at the prom, it's obvious where this doctor's heart lies. Stevie Wonder has 20/20 vision compared to you, Finn. Find a girl that appreciates you.
AwayWithMerDer: Duh, 'cause they were never exclusive. Obviously he can't be angry at Meredith, who was being celibate, for sleeping with a married man. Go Team Finn. He's not pathetic or anything.
iheartizzie: He adores her, despite her flaws. You have to wonder why he's even bothering, though... if he figured out what happened at the prom, he should know his chances are remote. Yet you have to admire him for going down swinging.
Flashbacks: I want more? Pretty huge bore?
iheartizzie: The flashback of Derek leaving Addison was compelling. It was painful and emotionally charged -- even more so than the powerful scene of Miranda and Omar sobbing on opposite sides of the door. That glimpse into Derek's past tells a lot about him. As for the rest of them, they didn't offer anything new. Yes, Derek met Meredith at the bar! What's the point?
AwayWithMerDer: I want more Addison in no pants. Yum. The other flashbacks? Pretty huge bore.
McCritic: Given the brief nature of them -- and the lack of any new information revealed from these characters' pasts -- I'd refer to them as a "pretty huge bore." But I am curious if Preston and his killer purple tie/shirt combo closed the deal with that fox at the party as well as he closes incisions on the operating table.
Does George smell what Callie is cooking?
AwayWithMerDer: I sure hope so. It looked like some sort of Italian. Maybe a nice pesto sauce? Either way, some authentic Italian cooking from this Latina character. And if George doesn't notice your cooking? Count me in!
McCritic: I think so. He just needs time to chew, swallow and digest it. We don't want our fragile intern choking to death, do we?
iheartizzie: Probably. Did you see how many things she had going in the kitchen? The aroma surely filled most of the house when he walked in.
What's next for the grieving Isobel Stevens?
McCritic: Two words: Cup. Cakes.
AwayWithMerDer: I think she needs 50 cc's of Karev. Stat. And with the new haircut he got in the one day between seasons 2 and 3? What a stud!
iheartizzie: Reading the classifieds. I heart Izzie, but no way our girl is getting back into the internship program after pulling a stunt like that. Nor could she find the strength. Hate to say it, but the pompous Alex we saw at that cocktail party was right.
