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.

Actually, yeah, merder wasn't in the same place this season but that's the beauty of it: 2 people who are in sooo different places and under no circumstances should be together, love eachother sooo much and trying to overcome what's keeping them apart-often by making lots of mistakes, but that's ok, because that's what humans do.

i think im actually starting to like hahn and sloan... u just look at mark and think hes gonna go for some really pretty girl (addison) and then he likes hahn and now shes not the prettiest, but i mean shes not bad, but i think this is what makes it a cool thing... he likes her for her not her looks or anything... alex and izzie are so cute.. i was kinda hoping alex and ava would end up together and just play a whole chief/adele thing where she came in an episode every so often... but ive always liked alex and izzie and through it all hes really cared about her and i definitely think once this strike is fixed they will be the next couple to hook up... as for miss i can't commit and mr. im not man enough... IM SICK OF THEM! its the same story every episode...
derek: "Meredith, i love you."
meredith: "Um i got to go see Cristina"
I MEAN COME ON!!! something is obviously wrong here and i know you are all huge fans of these two and im gonna get at least 10 comments back saying o there awesome and u dont know what ur talking about but whatever... for those of you who like them can u honestly tell me that they have been both happy and in the same place this season? can u find an episode where both derek and meredith were in love and wanted a future? NO ITS IMPOSSIBLE! because meredith DOESNT WANT A FUTURE! so criticize me all you want, but im sticking to my opinion.
