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.

does anyone here go to hoggard high school in wilmington NC? just wondering?


hmmmmmm i wonder who rosehater is..... she seems like a very likeable and wise young lady...


i woul like that when derek is over with rose and he finally realises that he cant live without meredith that he fights to get meredith back. i want alex and izzie together i think they look good together because seriously in my opinion she and george just look good together as best friends i really dont like that couple..


I thought we were done with Alex and Izzie, and I was SO happy about that, so what was up with those scenes of them this episode, doesn't he have enough women problems with Ava and Lexie, stay away from Izzie! I thought George was Izzie's true love, I mean that is what she said when she told him she loved him last season and I believed her and I rooted for George and Izzie to be together. That love story was and still is special to me. Isn't it enough that they spent an whole episode trying to convince me Gizzie has no chemistry even though I know they do and see ti all the time, now they are going to act like this love story meant nothing by having Izzie move on right away. FU Shonda!


So what is up with Gizzie? They break up with I love yous and a dance that is filled with chemistry and love and this week, not one scene together, like they never meant anything to each other. I am mad already my favorite couple got broken up without ever getting a real chance, but now I have to suffer the indignity right before the strike too of not getting one scene with them and having the horror of Lexzie revisited, plus the possibility of a George and Lexie hookup. I HATE that and I HATED that episode.


I hate Alex and Izzie even more than I hate Derek and Rose so I pray to God they do not go back there. I thought George and Izzie were perfect and the most adorable couple on TV. I could see them having kids and growing old together and of course, Shonda had to ruin that. George and Izzie were the one thing keeping me watching the show, so when the strike is over, I won't be coming back.


I'd like to see Alex and Izzie happy partners for life. (I realize this is not a popular point of view..)
I'd like to see Meredith and Derek happy partners for life. but the push-pull, on-off soapiness of it all wears my patience thin- ! very thin. I also think it would be cool if Dr Hahn turns out to- uh- prefer women.


oh my god! die rose. derekisformeredith! you're the best! i love you! see you in english tomorrow!
heheh. guess who it isssss =]


i like hers the best, too. its very clever. =]


i like joys the most thje one about lost haha!!!!!
