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.

Hahn and Sloan rule. Derek and Rose rule. What I want to see on this show is adult relationships, not the constant jumping in and out of bed and indecisiveness as conveyed by Meredith and Cristina in their relationships wikth Derek and Burke. No men in their position would put up with such childish acting women. At least not for a long term commitment.

i'm agree with greylover 32 in the part of izzie and alex i really like to see them together.:)
meredith and derek well i think they both havee issues, but now that derek is going on a date with rose it would be nice if sloan asks meredith out just go out no sex include, because meredith allready fought for derek and he chosed addison so it would be good if derek fights for meredith or something like that i don't know hehe i just know that i want the strike to be over!!! i can live without grey's :(

i agree kathy!i think both sides are trying to show their power! but this is just stupid because its certain that this cannot go on 4 ever, and of course many viewers will loose interest.
by they way, has anybody else noticed that it seems grey's cast is in someway "divided"? i mean ellen and patrick are friends and ellen with eric dane vistited patrick when he was rasing, and ellen went on a double date with eric, his wife and her husband.
and then there's kathrine and tr and kate walsh and well, almost everybody else. kate walsh and kathrine heigl didn't invite ellen and patrick to their weddings.
anyway i hope its just because they feel they connect with some people more, and there's no hard feelings

I wonder if Ellen called Patrick today and wished him a Happy Birthday? I bet she did!

I really don't understand why the two sides aren't talking or anything! Why aren't they trying to figure this thing out instead of being stubborn? I mean don't they realize that people are going without work and need their jobs back and we the viewers are suffering too! I really don't understand why negotiations are in the works. Are they trying to see which side can hold out the longest? This is so unfair to so many people! I wish there was something that we the fans could do that would really make a diffference!

i know its like both sides want the strike 4 some reason. i mean, obviously it has to resolve at some point, so why stalling? i allready miss grey's!!!

TEAM MEREDITH! all I can say is that Derek knew she has sever issues, he knew what he was getting into, he should never have kissed Rose, and he should have waited to show Meredith the house plans.
Derek brought all of this onto himself- he dug his own hole.

I am so sick of Rose. I don't know what the writers are thinking about putting Derek and Rose together, Yuck! Even Addison and Derek had more passion together on the screen then Rose and Derek. Where's the sparks? What I am sick of the most is that Shonda said months ago that Meredith was Derek's heart and that she couldn't see him with anyone else other then Meredith but now he's kissing and wanting to date Rose? Shonda what were you thinking? No one talks about a life together in a "Dream House" and then goes out and dates the first girl that acutally kissed you one time just because you are throwing a tantrum that the woman you want to marry isn't ready for it. Derek needs to seriously Grow up and get some sense in him and go back for Mer and apologize for acting so juvenile. The thing is that Der knows that Mer has issues but fails to see that he also has major issues. He needs to slow down and she totally needs to speed up. Derek hello!!, how about you show Mer for the first time in her entire life that she is worthy of sticking around for. He needs to be the first in her personal life not to be a complete jerk and just love her.

Alright, lets talk.
Izzie and Alex- so hot. They are the perfect ying and yang couple without losing any sexual attraction. Izzie's all hopeful and caring, and Alex is all rough and sarcastic. They balance each other out. They both have their problems, ie. Izzie's messy love history (affair with George and thing with Denny) and Alex's wierd past (drunk father and whatever), but they work as a couple. George and Izzie are cute, but so do not have the couple vibe going. Mer and Der- duh. How could they live without seeing each other? They are Grey's Anatomy. It wouldn't be right. And Rose? She is so completely random and unattractive. She and Derek do not have that undeniable attraction that he and Meredith have. We want Derek and Meredith. We demand them. Our faith, our hope, our ability to faithfully watch every single episode, and believe so strongly in each characters' problems, triumphs, and failures will be tarnished if Meredith Grey and Derek Sheppard decide to part ways forever. Also, Mark and Erica- still undecided. He is so very sexy and McSteamy that I don't know if she could balance the relationship physically. However, she is a strong woman, a smart, independent person. She could challenge his self-assuredness. It could be an interesting possibility.
