Round Table: "Where The Wild Things Are"

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 "Where The Wild Things Are" include George and Lexie living together, Izzie's blunder, and the hotness of Alex and Derek...

1. Is Izzie the worst doctor in history?

McCritic: Doc Ock was responsible for hundreds of deaths in Spider-Man 2. And Dr. Kevorkian was licensed in assisted suicide. But neither killed his fiance, nor did either man accomplish the seemingly impossible task of causing Cheech Marin to be anything but laid back and happy. Makes this an Izzie choice.

iheartizzie: I heart Izzie, but she's in the running. If she hadn't funded the free clinic, or she weren't signed to a six-year contract, she'd be out the door.

missingBurke: No. That's gotta be Sydney Heron. No one is that perky.

2. George and Lexie: Cute, boring or annoying?

iheartizzie: A little annoying, if only because of the living situation. It doesn't make sense. Surgical interns don't rake in big bucks, but they generally receive paychecks. Big enough paychecks so as to expand one's housing options beyond Fight Club style dumps. We know George O'Malley is impulsive, but no way does he go in there, look around and sign a lease. Did anyone see that fridge?

McCritic: Cute. Please don't mess up this burgeoning friendship by sleeping with Lexie, George. You've really gotta stop doing that with your roommates.

missingBurke: Lexie was kind of annoying me last night, but redeemed herself by yoinking Rose's flowers. Way to go girl!

Younger Dr. Grey

3. How long could you look into McDreamy's eyes without sleeping with him?

missingBurke: ... wait, sorry ... what? I was too mesmerized by McDreamy for a moment there to notice the third question.

McCritic: That's none of your business. Let's focus on Rose instead: Honey, Shonda Rhimes has admitted that you're nothing but a stop gap before Derek and Meredith end up together. Being alone with McDreamy for 2.5 seconds without getting him McNaked is just embarrassing. You gotta get yours while you can.

iheartizzie: A good couple of minutes. I pride myself on my will power.

4. Addison's return next week: Cheap plot device or HOT plot device?

McCritic: Can't it be both? Lindsay Lohan is.

iheartizzie: Maybe a tad unrealistic, but who cares!? Addison was much better on Grey's Anatomy than the ill-conceived Private Practice. Maybe she'll decide to stick around Seattle Grace for good. Wishful thinking...

missingBurke: Cheap. No, hot... maybe a little of both! Shonda, can you give us a little Mark Sloan-Addison on-call room action for old times' sake next week? PLEASE!!

5. Do you prefer Alex Karev with or without the facial hair?

missingBurke: Alex Karev is hot either way, but the new look suits him. At least he went all-in instead of just the dumb goatee.

McCritic: I prefer him involved in more significant story lines than the peripheral scenes he's stuck in week after week. But let's go with the facial hair. It accentuates his tough exterior.

iheartizzie: With. Somehow it adds to his "scrappy" persona.

obssessedwatcher i agree with you. ive been wondering the same thing: how will der react when he finds out she's seeing a shrink? in fact how will they all feel when they find out mers seeing a shrink becuz i dont think cris or iz know mer is going to therapy. im really excited for the next episodes! I loved the last one! im proud of mer.


I think Shonda is back on track.
I saw more of the real GA in this episode.
It's less croudy with all the new interns out of the picture except for Lexie.
The group is back together again. I didn't like the split-up in the beginning of the season. I saw more of the real Meredith too. She is again focusing and working on her problems. Very clear Der/Rose are no big deal. He's is not into her at all.
I think this part of the season will not be bad at all....


can semeone put a link to download the epiosde
Thanks =D


the best parallel story of the ep: he married the rebound girl and loves her.. which only ever happens in greys and not in real life


its amazing! this is like the first episode with no major sex or kissing.. either that or i just haven't watched greys in too long a time! but wow! i really like how things aren't just people sleeping with other people any more! and i think addison just may be derek's jolt into getting back together with mer!


I don't know about the Hahn-McSteamy scenes..............looks more like Hahn and Callie might be getting a little steamy!


I wanted some Hahn and McSteamy scenes.


Loved the episode... but ya Lexie was a bit annoying... She studders alot!!!!


I loved Lexie last night when she had the nerve to swipe a large framed picture from the hospital. Alex and Mark did a swap on the facial hair last night - Alex gained some and Mark lost all of his. While I do miss Mark's facial hair, they were both looking good last night.


I loved Where the Wild things are! That last scene was GREAT! DER is already having a hard time not grabbing her! He also is obviously having a hard time seeing her and not talking with her- He misses her even if he can't admit it yet-It is written all over his face. What do you think he is going to do when he finds out she is seeing the shrink?
MER will never cease to surprise him! These sneak peeks are great for a ‘Piece of My Heart"- I laughed my butt off!
I can't wait till next week! Could it be possible that each week could get better and better? That puts a lot of pressure for that finale!

Grey's Anatomy Season 4 Episode 12 Quotes

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.

Mark: I don't like her. I'm sorry, but as your friend it's my job to say I don't like Rose.
Derek: Why?
Mark: You're not even sleeping with her.
Derek: You don't like her 'cause she's not sleeping with me? That's a little weird.
Mark: It's not weird.
Derek: It's a little weird.
