Round Table: "Lay Your Hands On Me"

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.

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.


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.

I like the idea of George and Lexie moving in, they have a cute friendship and George eneds that. But I do not want him to sleep with her, the only girl I want him sleeping with is Izzie, but I want them to get some romance first. Put their lives back togetehr again and then find their way back to each other. They were the best couple ever.


I will always root for Gizzie as well and for MerDer.


Seriously for me putting Izzie and George together was the ONLY smart thing they did in the two last seasons, though they should not have started them as an affair, but then I don<t think they should ever have married george and Callie in the first place, he did so because he was a mess after his dad died. That said, I have no doubt George and Izzie truly loved each other and still did, and I am all for the love winning out in the end. I will always root for those two.


Ok, Derek really needs to move on, though I love them together, Meredith just cant get herself together enough to handle a grown up relationship. As such, she does not deserve Derek. Her behavior is annoying at this point. I hope Alex and Izzie don't start up again, Izzie needs to take a break from the romance thing for awhile, it really does not work out for her!!! Plus, they did not work the first time, and now she has slept with George, who Alex thinks is rediculous, so I doubt he will go back for sloppy seconds. Gizzie was awkward and they are much better off as friends. Izzie was rebounding and George was just a mess. Hahn and Steamy would be great together! She is just as cocky as he is!! She is exactly what he deserves, and vice versa. Poor Miranda, her marriage is most likely over, and now she has to rethink and rework it all. I think that will be great plot, as so many women face that every day. How to move on after your dream is over. George needs to take a break from the romance game as well, and I do not think that moving in with Meredith's sister, his former love, is a good way to go about it. She is as big a mess as her sister. As for Rose, and I am going to take flack for this, but I like her. She is more realistic than most on the show and will add some levity that is oft missing, espically after last season. That is how people end up meeting in real life, they are just there, as she told Derek, she had been in 20 something of his surgeries, and now he is actually looking around. Mind you, I know their kiss was far fetched, but thats TV!! I am just hoping for a end to the strike so that we can have some more to talk about soon!


nicely put kevin. the only people i like on greys an the moment are sloan and alex.


seriously, they ruined each and every character:
Derek; from mcdreamy- impatient, opressive, manwhore
Meredith; from the"interesting girl"-whinning,cantmakeuphermind,tiring
Izzie; from caring and thoughtful- crazy, jealous, adulterous
George; from funny and sweet- selfish and boring
Christina; from smart, witty and attention-grabbing- just doesn't exist anymore.
So does Callie and Sloan.
Are they trying to ruin it? 'Cause they're doing a pretty good job at it


I hate season 4, period. I feel as if they're killing my favorite tv show. First, they mess up by putting George and Izzie together. Big mistake. What's worse: the Izzie character seems to be crazier and more psycho by the minute, as opposed to the sensitive, caring character of the first seasons. And George should not have told Meredith about Derek's kiss with Rose. It seems as if he did it on purpose, maybe he's not really over her, or wants to get back at her for not giving him a chance. I agree with other posters regarding the sudden appearance of Rose. It's just not working for me. And why is it that Meredith can't get over her commitment issues? Enough already! Plus, is it me or Meredith's character is being largely ignored this season? She barely appears on the episodes this season. And don't get me started on how much I miss the Burke and Addison characters...! The show has lost its spunk.


o haha!!!! no problem!!!!!! :)


I love george and Izzie and I HATE how they break up. We saw the chemistry with them, in that kiss in the elevator, and the first time they made love and it makes me beyond mad Shonda spent a whole episode trying to convince the Gizzie fans it was in their head. We know on which side she is on: the Gizzie haters, because that whole break-up seemed intended to make the haters happy. What she did not know is how many people love this couple, as much or more that don't like them, and I know I will never forgive her for how shabbily she treated Gizzie and their fans. GIZZIE FOREVER!


My problem with Rose is that she came out of no where. Addison being the wife of course is going to track down her husband. Finn was Doc's vet and it lead up to their relationship. Rose on her first episode has been in 30+ surgeries and told Derek what he was wanting to hear. She has stalker writen all over her. Let's face it they take each other for garanted until they realize they may lose each other forever. Derek got jealous over Finn now it's Meredith's turn to get jealous over Rose. They love each other it's just sad they havn't figures out how to equally yet. But I still have hope that they will.
