Round Table: "Crash Into Me, Part I"

by at . Comments

While fans gather in our forum to discuss each character, couple and plot twist, the Grey's Anatomy Insider staff comes together to talk about the key moments and share their opinions regarding the latest episode of our favorite drama.

Round Table topics for "Crash Into Me, Part I" include the future of Derek and Rose, Alex's love interests, and our favorite funny and gross moments ...

1. Will Rose be a thorn in Meredith's side?

McCritic: I hope so. If only for the opportunity to use award-winning puns such as the one above. Seriously, though, her romance with McDreamy appears to be blossoming.

iheartizzie: Every Rose has its thorn, so to speak, but rather than lodge itself painfully in Mer's side, perhaps this one will spur her into action by making her realize what she stands to lose by not stepping up and fighting for her man.

AndYouveGotTheHair: I've read the spoilers and the speculation of the Rose character (Lauren Stamile). But I'm curious to see if she and McDreamy hit it off or if she merely serves as a means of bringing Meredith and Derek closer.

Morose Mer

2. More enjoyable: Dr. Hahn's sarcastic putdowns of Mark, or Cristina dancing her troubles away?

iheartizzie: I love watching Erica shoot down Mark. Such great lines, and ones that may result in more character depth for the brash Dr. Sloan down the line.

McCritic: Dr. Erica Hahn's remarks. Anything that features the underused Sloan more often can only be a good thing in my eyes.

AndYouveGotTheHair: The scene with Cristina dancing was great, although it made me long for the days when Dr. Preston Burke might have joined her,

3. More disgusting: That dude's tattoo, or Nick's artery bursting all over Lexie?

AndYouveGotTheHair: One indirectly represents genocide and millions of deaths, while the other can be washed away in 10 seconds. Tough call!

McCritic: A Swastika is symbolic of ignorance, hatred. It conjures up pity and disdain, not pure disgust. That artery burst, however? I haven't eaten anything red since.

iheartizzie: While the symbol of the Third Reich is obviously more abhorrent from a historical standpoint, Lexie getting splattered made me wince more at that instant. On a side note, did we need the super slow-motion incision through the Swastika? My head is hurting from being hit over the head with your symbolism, Shonda.

4. Will Miranda and Tucker save their marriage?

McCritic: Yes. But the awful nickname of "Mucker" doesn't stand a chance.

iheartizzie: I hope so. I'd love to see more of Tucker (Cress Williams, who I've liked ever since his stint as D'Shawn on Beverly Hills: 90210), but it seems fair that more attention be given to the home life of the show's best character.

AndYouveGotTheHair: Sadly, I think they're headed down the same path as Richard and Adele, which is interesting in this case because of the juxtaposed gender roles - Miranda, a female, criticized for focusing on her career. Very 21st Century.

Alexie Love!

5. Should Alex wind up with Lexie, Ava, neither or both?

McCritic: Both would be nice, but this is Grey's Anatomy, not Grey's Anato-threesome. I think Ava is best for Alex. He'll soon come to the same realization.

iheartizzie: I love Ava / Rebecca (Elizabeth Reaser) and have ever since last season. These two at least need to give a relationship a try. Lexie and Alex are cute but there isn't that compelling spark that he and Rebecca have.

AndYouveGotTheHair: I wasn't buying it at first, but I've just started to like Alex and Lexie together. No offense to Ava, but I'm pulling for Alexie, baby!

To be honest, I think the swastika part of the storyline was arranged by the network as a quiet way of making changes following the Isaiah Washington era. Because calling someone a "Nazi" is not all that different from calling them the "f" word - it's still harmful speech.

George and Izzie is the only couple I remotely are about and Shonda is ruining that, so I don't give a d*mn about Alex

i used to like alex-izzie also, but now i think that the alex-lexie (Alexie) team up is better and makes me look forward more to seeing them together. Crash Into Me Part I made me sad though, when Lexie and Ava met. i closed my eyes.

i do not support alex/ava, alex/lexxie relationship.
i stongly feel alex and izzie are perfectly suited together. So shonda pls get them together. they flow well together and their chemistry is strong and real.

I really don't think Shonda gives a crap about the fans as long as she keeps getting the ratings. She'll stretch this Rose thing out as long as she can. I hate it. I tried to watch them, Derek and Rose i mean, objectively and it just doesn't work. lauren stamille is perfectly nice and all but she's gettin the screen time that EP should be gettin. I also think EP has more sex appeal in her little toe than her. No offence or anything. I'm just really sad now. the writers' have two great actors in PD who have blistering chemistry, like off the charts sexy together and they're just wastin it. I think everyone is just sick of it and they're better be a HUGE pay off. Seriously. we've been waitin for progress between mer and der since the ferry crash.

If Derek will choose Rose, he's a moron. I will stop to watch this show. People are on Meredith's side right now. For Meredith, Derek is the one. Derek wants only a wife. With Grey's timeline he divorced only few months ago.

im a fan of alex and izzie, as a couple and as separate characters... whoever alex chooses whether ava/rebecca or lexie for now, doesn't affect me much... i can also see that izzie's fling to george will soon come to an end (coz there's just no chemistry and it's not working)... no violent reactions plz coz it's just my opinion... i jst hope that in the end, alex and izzie will end up together.. so, shonda pls stick to d original storyline... ava and lexie are newcomers, just like denny who's really not part of d original casting, so they shouldn't stay very long in the show...

Grey's Anatomy Season 4 Episode 9 Quotes

Nick: They all look scared.
Mark: They're medical professionals. A healthy level of fear is encouraged.

I'm going to go in early. I'm going to get on hard-core, Erica Hahn cardio and I'm gonna kick ass at it. And when I kick ass at cardio, it's going to piss Cristina off, but it won't matter, because I'll be a kick-ass cardio god!

Izzie
