Round Table: "Crash Into Me, Part II"

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 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.

Red Scrubs?

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.

The Dancing Party was my favorite part of the episode, followed by Mer telling dr. Hahn to shut it.
I actually played DDR too after seeing that episode McDuckie:)


We need new stuff-there needs to be more than eleven episodes in the season so… hay we could right our own seceul for now. Really I want george and izzie together and Sugarland's song Want to is perfect for them the Chorus is Whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop this spining
We could think it through
But I don't want to, if you don't want to
We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came, with nothing to lose
But I don't want to, if you don't want to\ And the ending is amazing Never waste another day
Wonderin' what you threw away
Holdin me, holdin you
I don't want to, if you don't want to We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came, with nothing to lose
But I don't want to, but you don't want to But I want you Really they should be cool and take a step back from thier sex life and just take a trip together.The spoilers for episode 11 say that george's mother comes back. Maybe gearge will have to go somewhere and episode 12 will end playinas they drive off to where ever. They are the cutest together and I am tired of Merder's on off relationship let someone be happy. what do you think?


ah. people need to stop saying stuff about derek and meredith moving on. if they arent together its not greys. and if you like rose you aren't a true fan


george and izzie are not over, george was talking about marrage and they only agreeded that it was bad timing the next time then need an excape from thier misrable lives they will wake up in bed, they love eachother but noone gets thier happy ending in this show so izzie will have to be pregnat before they deside to be together for ever
P.S. i hope she is


I'm a Gizzie fan and was disappointed that they broke up but it also gave them an opportunity to "fall in love" on camera. The last thing we want is for Izzie to be considered a rebound relationship. Let him grieve his dad and his marriage. Izzie deserved better than someone still clinging to the past. Let George work through his issues then woo the hell out of Izzie. I hope that this couple is on a "break" and not a "break-up." I love them. I want "someday" to be soon.


its so devastating.


ava and alex =[[ i have no idea whats going on with those two and i love them together ='[[


Thanks Kathy!
I watched that forum and some links... In some link, I was able to read a part of the script from epi 11, a Merder and Der/Rose part. Damnn if it's true... There'll be a lot frustration about Derek again 8-) :-S
But I'm sure Merder will get back together, we just have to wait a little longer!


I started to boycott the show when Rose appeared on screen. DEREK KISSED ROSE AND HE WAS HAPPY! A loyal MerDer fan can't accept it. I agree with TWOP posters and with some other posters. They are over and when Shonda will fix them, their fans won't believe in this couple again.


I've noticed there is another Kathy that posting on this forum and she is a Gizzie fan. Just to say, thats not me..I'm a true Mer/Der fan! (ha) greyslover - I have read some of the spoilers on the website link attached. there are alot of threads that link to GA from this link. I only read naturally about Mer/Der or their link on PD. I don't post there but it is interesting to read what other people think about Mer/Der and whats going on with them.
http://forums.televisionwithou... hafsa - Don't give up on Mer/Der just yet! Even though Der did kiss Rose and believe me, it took alitttle McDreaminess from our perfect Derek...I'm still believing in what Shonda is trying to do here. I really think she is trying to strengthen both Mer/Der as she brings them back together. I just hope she doesn't ruin our almost perfect image of Derek in the process. You know? Its one thing that she let him kiss Rose, but that better be it! We can't handle him taking it a step further! I am still optimistic here......I just can't see Derek letting Mer go ! And I'm not sure what all will take place in episode 11 that will reassure us from the spoilers that I have read. Unless, the scripts changed after they realized the strike may happen and Shonda knew she couldn't leave us hanging with the ending of Der asking Rose out on a date! Knowing we would all assume Mer/Der broke up again. Naturally, none of us know what she has in store for these two (Mer/Der), and I am one of those diehard Mer/Der fans that will hold out with hope until there is nothing left to hold on to!
