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.

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.


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.

no problem, joy!! =)


i thanked u 4 the compliment to my idea of killing rose! :-)


alright so it seems the greys anatomy viewers and die-hard fans have a lot to say on every single relationship in the show. which is good, a good show should cause strong feelings. but maybe, instead of remaining in this constant delicate balance in every relationship, they should plunge into the unknown, take the dive, and produce a strong couple for once. to soothe our little aching hearts, and show us that there is hope yet for grey's anatomy.


Okay, this is a comment for Jessica. :) Hey, you are completely right in everything that you said. George and Izzie are totally meant for each other! Gizzie all the way! The whole thing with Alex is over, it's been done with since their breakup over Denny. As for the friendship between George and Lexie is just that, a firendship and nothing more, they just aren't right for each other like that. Now for my own info., I think that as I said before the whole Mer/Der relationship is going to do the same thing it always does. They will break up for a while and then they'll end up sleeping together and be happy for a while, before it happens all over again!!! OH, now this is just totally an idea, but my friend and I came up with this - meredith is going to go to joe's and start drinking when she meets up with mark and they will end up sleeping together which will make derek SO jealous and he will completely forget about rose and go back to meredith!! :) WOULDN'T THAT BE GREAT!!!! anyway we got over that idea b/c we realized that mark would never do anything like that and risk jeapordizing his newly fixed friendship with derek, oh well! anyway, I hope the writer's strike ends soon, I am dying without my Grey's!! JUST PAY THE FREAKIN WRITERS ALREADY!!!! :( Grey's Rules!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!! :)


why r u thanking us joy?


Lauren, you are an ass! I don't think you want to marry a man who wants a future with you but that the day before he kissed another woman. This man doesn't want a future with you, he wants only a wife and a new divorce


Rose is the new Addison.


I love the idea of George and Lexie as roommates, I think they make the cutest friends and have thought so from the start. Was upset when they seemed to have dropped the friendship. I do not want them as more though, George<s soulmate is Izzie and she is the only one he should be with, same with Izzie. Alex and Izzie were terrible the first time around, and I am not interested in going there again. Same with George and Callie.


thanks iloveEllenPompeo and die rose. derekisformeredith :-)


See stop th strike, I am the opposite, I think Alex and Izzie just look good as friends, when they try to act coupley, it feels fake. All through season 2, during their so-called hot sex scenes, I always felt like they were trying SO DAMN hard, I should not be feeling that way. When I see George and Izzie, they just look like a couple to me, it feels so natural like they were always meant to be and I hadn't even thought of them until they happened but now looking back, I don't see how I missed the signs. Funny how I fell so in love with this couple over such a short period of time and now it looks like they won't even be given a fair chance, that upsets me so much. If they go for Alex and Izzie, I will have to stop watching. I watch enough TV already and I love my other shows much more, George and Izzie were what kept me tuning in.
