Round Table: "Crash Into Me, Part II"
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 II" include the future of Derek and Rose, Alex's love interests, and our favorite funny and gross moments ...
1. So Rose can apparently fix computers. What other surprise talents will this versatile nurse unveil next?
McCritic: She can go an entire hour without making everything about herself. It's a talent Derek's other love interest is yet to master.
iheartizzie: No idea. But Mer-Der lovers who inherently dislike Rose may be amused to learn that the mascot of UC-Santa Cruz is - seriously - the banana slug.
AndYouveGotTheHair: The way this is headed, there will be another code black and Rose will save the day by dismantling an explosive or disarming a crazed gunman.
2. Tougher loss to stomach: Nick's blood, or Bailey's marriage?
iheartizzie: The former. Seriously, that was the goriest episode of all-time. Seth Green pretty much bled to death over the course of an hour. Perhaps a little overkill - for a second I thought Lexie Grey changed into red scrubs.
McCritic: Miranda Bailey deserves better than someone who can't understand her obligations as a surgeon. She'll be better off in the end. But Nick, sadly, will never be better off again after losing so much blood.
AndYouveGotTheHair: They were both hard to watch for different reasons. I couldn't help but notice the great guest star performances from both Nick and Tucker (Cress Williams), as well as Ava (Elizabeth Reaser) and of course Rose. Despite how gross it was at times, this was a powerful episode.
3. Best quote directed at Dr. Hahn: Meredith telling her to zip it, or Mark not promising anything when it comes to hitting on her?
AndYouveGotTheHair: Meredith! Hahn had that coming and it was great to see our girl stand up to her ... as well as for herself at the end. Hope it's enough!
McCritic: Mark. I also loved his response to Hahn's request to get A drink. He seemed to be focused on more than one libation: "Sure, let's drink."
iheartizzie: Mark. The serious expression on Dr. Sloan's face as he says he's not gonna guarantee that was priceless. And how could he? That would be like George swearing off bumbling or Alex promising he won't look hot in that wife-beater.
4. What's next for George and Izzie after their talk?
McCritic: Admiring the realism of MTV's The Hills. Supporting the Iraq war. Watching soccer. After admitting they love each other, but blaming "timing" as the reason they couldn't be together, I figure they'll continue to do things that don't make any sense.
iheartizzie: I think they're going to cool it and try to rediscover their bond as friends before taking it to the next level. He may genuinely love Izzie, but George was smart to put the brakes on. He is, presumably, still married to Callie.
AndYouveGotTheHair: What was that? Did they break up or just take a step back? I don't know what to think about Gizzie anymore. I love them together a lot but some of these twists seem unrealistic (as Katherine Heigl herself said).
5. How much did you want to join that dance party?
McCritic: Enough for me to head to the local arcade and spend half the night playing Dance Dance Revolution.
iheartizzie: Should I be proud or embarrassed to admit that Mrs. iheartizzie and I actually did join in with our own dance party in our living room at the end?
AndYouveGotTheHair: So much. What a great scene, although it would have been better had Callie made a surprise appearance ... in only her underwear.
