Round Table: "Lay Your Hands On Me"

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 "Lay Your Hands On Me" include the future of Bailey's marriage, some new roommates, some old lovers, and a huge breakup ...

1. Is Cristina a robot?

McCritic: No more so than Bill Belichick. And that's worked out pretty well for the New England Patriots Head Coach.

iheartizzie: She tries to act like one to get ahead, and hone her skills, but Yang's comforting of Bailey and little Tuck wasn't the first sign of Cristina's human side. Nor will it be the last. There's a big heart inside this cardio-god-in-training.

missingBurke: No. But with Burke out of the picture, Cristina has been forced to focus on work more than ever. During that relationship, it was apparent she was capable of, you know, feelings.

Cristina Yang

2. Is there a romantic future for Izzie and Alex?

iheartizzie: I hope so. I always loved these two together. Despite Denny and Ava being terrific love interests for each, I think there's something here.

McCritic: Probably. The show currently has nary a romantic entanglement among the main characters. How long can that continue for? Unless Dr. Hahn comes to her senses and locks McSteamy in an on-call room, Izzie and Alex are the next likely pairing.

missingBurke: Of course not. Izzie is madly in love with Denny, right? Or is that George? Either way, Alex was never much more than a sexmate for her.

3. Will Bailey's marriage survive?

missingBurke: Unfortunately not, I'm afraid. But luckily, little Tuck appears to be okay, and hopefully, his single parents will be happier on their own while still giving their child - who they both love - the attention he deserves.

McCritic: Only if Miranda dials down her duties at Seattle Grace. And can anyone see that happening?

iheartizzie: Sadly, I think Tucker Sr. has made up his mind on this one. While she may think she can have it all, Dr. Bailey won't sacrifice her career to meet him halfway. The look on her face at the end said more than words could.

Georgie

4. Will George and Lexie make good roommates?

McCritic: No. If George is looking to take care of himself, he shouldn't have a roommate; especially one that's attractive, single and open to sleeping with co-workers.

iheartizzie: These two have a nice connection, and George landed in the Friend Zone from the start this time, so it should work out well. Probably.

missingBurke: George has befriended, then slept with, and made things really awkward with, three other attractive ladies at SGH... why stop the streak now?

5. Pick a side: Team Derek or Team Meredith?

McCritic: Derek told Meredith he wanted to marry her. Derek told Meredith he'd wait, but would also keep options open in case someone more committed came along. Derek broke things off with Rose (Lauren Stamile) the instant Meredith wanted to be exclusive. So can anyone tell me what he did wrong?

iheartizzie: Team Meredith all the way. There's no chemistry between Derek and Rose, plain and simple. You know Mer loves you, Derek. The house thing was too much. She needs more time to get over her issues gradually!

missingBurke: Team Meredith. Derek is breaking up MerDer for what? Dose? Rerek? No option works.

Maddie, I love you, we Gizzie fans cannot give up hope but I am with you as long as Gizzie is not put back together, I will not watch especially if the pukeworthy Alex and Izzie are put back together, watching them mate like disgusting animals was bad enough in season 2, after seeing the beautiful love between george and Izzie, it would be intolerable. Shonda must think the Gizzie fans are idiots or the fans in general. Both fans and haters know Shonda dropped Gizzie for only one reason: she was afraid of the haters's backlash. Well I have news for ehr: the abcklash from the Gizzie fans she so callously ignored will be much worse to bear.

omg!!! i agree with Mina so much. i wanna kiss you on the cheek!! All you Gizzie fans out there don't give up!!! although i know we all got a huge gigantic slap on the face when Gizzie broke up so suddenly in my opinion just because of stupid timing??!! shonda we are all intelligent ppl who deserve a better love story than tht!! i agree that george and izzie had amazing chemistry as Lovers and friends. the only reason i keep religiously watching Greys was because of Gizzie. and now since the writers saw it fit to break those two apart and dump alex into the picture, i don't see any possible reason i would like to watch Greys anymore!! It's so frustrating and unrealistic in so many ways..in terms of the relationships produced!! and how they are turn out...so depressing shonda! Gizzie was perfect together and submission to the Haters wasn't a good idea at all. It ruined everything us Gizzie fans hoped and longed for since season 3! Give us George and izzie again...they were the best on screen couple Greys has seen i ages...and if they put alex with izzie i think i will puke!! literally. he was just a sex toy for her...so shallow and fake. George is real...and he truly Loves her!! COME on!!! Fight for Gizzie n the rite for a happy ending.
Gizzie Forever!!!

All I want is George and Izzie togetehr, waited since season 1 for it. First of all Shonda puts them togetehr the worstw ay as he is married, but I tolerated it because I loved them so much and thought after all the pining and torture, we would get some pay-off. But no, what do we get? One episode of happiness followed by the no-chemistry episode which felt like the biggest slap in the face. Does she think the Gizzie fans are idiots, that we have forgotten their hot, hot kiss last season, that we do not see the amazing chemistry in all their couple scenes? It is pretty obvious she got scared of the haters and like a coward submitted to them, but I can tell her the thousands and thousands of Gizzzie fans will not forgive her for it.

DEAR McCRITIC.. about this
"McCritic: Derek told Meredith he wanted to marry her. Derek told Meredith he'd wait, but would also keep options open in case someone more committed came along. Derek broke things off with Rose (Lauren Stamile) the instant Meredith wanted to be exclusive. So can anyone tell me what he did wrong?" Is it believable? Derek forgot to talk about the kiss like he forgot to talk about his wife.
WRONG!
