Round Table: "Haunt You Every Day"
While fans gather in our forum to discuss each character and plot line, the Grey's Anatomy Insider staff comes together to talk about their favorite moments and share their opinions regarding the most recent episode of TV's top drama.
Round Table topics for "Haunt You Every Day" range from the arrival of Dr. Erica Hahn to Alex and Ava, Bailey's personal life and new hospital club ideas ...
1. Dr. Hahn: Welcome addition, or Unwanted bitch?
McCritic: A welcome addition. Especially considering the rumors that Dr. Hahn is a lesbian. Talk about sticking it to Isaiah Washington where it counts!
iheartizzie: Dr. Hahn's previous guest appearances were very solid, and I think the actress (Brooke Smith) does a great job. The only regrettable thing is Burke being gone - these college classmates had a great love-hate rapport, a begrudging mutual respect. It will be interesting to see Cristina work with Dr. Hahn.
AndYouveGotTheHair: Welcome. Looks like with Dr. Hahn and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) we're back up to an even dozen full-time cast members. That's a lot to find good stories and screen time for, but I do like Dr. Hahn and think she'll fit in well.
2. We now have Nurses United Against Mark Sloan. What other types of clubs could be formed to rally against (or for) other characters on the show?
iheartizzie: The I Got Syph From Olivia Club. Although word has it this club's server has already crashed twice from so many people logging on at once.
McCritic: Loyal and Dedicated Husbands Against George O'Malley.
AndYouveGotTheHair: Men and Women United in Awe of McDreamy's Hair.
3. For the first time in awhile, we got a glimpse into the personal life of Dr. Miranda Bailey. Do you want to see more of this?
AndYouveGotTheHair: I've been talking about the need for more Bailey on the show for weeks, and this insight into her personal life was an unexpected wrinkle. I'm glad the writers did it, because she's too good not to have more depth.
McCritic: Yes. It makes sense we rarely see the Miranda behind the Dr. Bailey. But this character has the biggest heart on the show. It's intriguing to see how she balances such generosity between her life-saving professional requirements and the demands of a loving husband and adorable newborn at home.
iheartizzie: Dr. Bailey is awesome. She's the go-to resident, regardless of Callie's title. But given her commitment to Seattle Grace, and the lack of attention her home life receives, I've wondered if she is headed down the same road as Richard on a personal level. This week was the first time this has been explored.
4. Diagnose the chemistry between Alex and Ava.
McCritic: Hot and heavy, with a chance for perpetual bliss if treated with proper care.
iheartizzie: Latent, but palpable. If Ava gives Alex the proper medication (a kick in the rear end), hopefully his symptoms of trepidation will be cured!
