Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Blink"

at . Comments

Welcome to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table discussion! Below, our panelists break down some of the burning questions we're left with after this past episode.

Topics for our "Blink" Round Table include memorable moments, Derek being Derek, Addison's latest visit, and the fallout from the docs' various romantic dalliances ...

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?

M.L. House: When Alex told Meredith he was "moving on," following the statement: "Turns out your stupid Post-It is 10 times the marriage my church wedding ever got to be." We just wish the show would follow suit and kick Katherine Heigl to the curb.

Mrs. Northman: "I'm too young to be a grandma. I'm supposed to work like a dog, come home and do stupid things." Alex: "I know something stupid you can do." Oh yeah! As much as I like both parties with their past significant others, I love it when a new romance changes things up! And, roommate sex? Almost as hot as birthday sex!

iheartizzie: "She's like a racehorse. She has to be pushed constantly. Otherwise, she's gonna lose her mind." Cristina Yang in 17 words, ladies and gentlemen!

L.J. Gibbs: Bailey to Derek: "You wouldn't be starting a conversation about my personal life, would you? Bad idea? Bad idea!" The Derek-Bailey dynamic is my favorite non-romantic relationship on the show. I loved when he tried to set her up.


2. The semiannual Addison visit: Always a treat or always trite?

L.J. Gibbs: This one gets mixed reviews from me. I love Addison and she was great last night, however this story seemed like it could've been condensed to just Grey's Anatomy, with her completing the surgery the first time. It felt a little forced bringing Mark to L.A.

Mrs. Northman: Trite - I like Addison and all, but keep her on her own show. It makes watching a "dramatic scene" stretched out to cover both shows. I think that is just a waste of time and obviously just a ploy to get us watching Private Practice.

M.L. House: Always hard to believe. Mark calls her in the morning, she drops her coffee, gets right on a plane and is wanting to set up Bailey within six seconds of arrival? Come on.

iheartizzie: Always a treat! Kate Walsh was one of my favorite Grey's Anatomy cast members, and this way I feel like she never really left. Plus, Kate and Eric Dane? Hot!

3. After their respective actions, will Mark and Lexie get back together - and will Izzie and Alex stay together?

Mrs. Northman: Hmm... tough call. I think it is a possibility for Mark and Lexie to because c'mon! Who is Mark to judge someone on something like that. But Alex and Izzie ... I don't think so! There's no way Izzie is coming back.

iheartizzie: No and no. Three of the four had sex with someone else in the last 24 hours.

M.L. House: No and no. Mark might return and want Lexie back, and the same might go down with Izzie - but as soon as the "stupid thing" (a.k.a. Alex) Lexie did gets revealed, both relationships will be over for good.

L.J. Gibbs: Based on the Grey's Anatomy spoilers I've seen, it looks like Katherine Heigl returns next week, only to leave again. Not hard to put two and two together there.

4. Now that he knows Richard's drinking, how will Derek respond?

M.L. House: Like the Salingers with Bailey back in the day on Party of Five: with an intervention.

L.J. Gibbs: Did he even find out? It sounded like he was about to until my crap-tastic DVR cut him off in mid-sentence. Then, oddly enough, my recorded Private Practice began with that show already in progress! Someone explain that one!

iheartizzie: He's not going to take it well. Not only is this bad news for the hospital, Derek is still not over the merger/Chief business from earlier this season. It's personal.

Mrs. Northman: Derek will be Derek and step in. He always has a will to help fix things and I think that he generally cares for Richard's well being. Gotta love McDreamy!

Somehow, we're guessing the ongoing feud between these two is about to get worse.

NOTE: Our Private Practice Round Table from last night is now live as well!

I just hope the child gets born is ok and Sloane Sloane gets to go home to her Mom. Mark meant what he said about loving little grey and works that out. Alex poor Alex!!!! He needs to kick Miss thang to the curb and find him a new woman. Sorry I don't like Izzy no more. I did for about half a second during the cancer and all that crap. I felt sorry for her. Now everytime I see her I get pissed cause she has a bad attitude. I still wanna see Alex with Reed. And Yang with Avery. And Teddy can have Owen. LOL!!! And everyone else has to stay with there partners. LOL!!!


@cristy nations:
I can certainly understand how you would feel so sensitive to the ABS story line but I really don't think they were making fun or trying to be mean. I think they just meant to show just how immature and selfish Sloane is and that she is IN NO WAY (in my opinion) mature enough to have a healthy baby much less one with a medical complication, which she pretty much came to realize herself by the end of the episode. Best of luck to your grandson.


i simply adore christina and owen and i just don't want teddy to mess things up between them both


I'm agreed with all you on Bailey and Derek are great non-couple when they interact in the show , as Mer and Alex are great as non-couple ,i think.


cristina and own for ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Best quote ever: "Take him"!!!


I really liked Catherine Hiegl but if she's not gonna be on the show, I think Lexi is an excellent match for hot, young, Dr. Alex!
I also think Addison is being wasted on "Private Practice" (it's like a copycat Grey's) and should come back to Grey's and Mark because she is much more his age and would make a much better step-mom to Mark's 18 yr. daughter than Lexi!
I love the fact that Grey's always throws a little humor in an otherwise tense drama show and lmao about the scene where poor Lexi couldn't find an unoccupied shower! I also think Merideth should lighten up a little and laugh more and interact with Christina like they use to. I realize Merideth is an old married lady now (well, supposedly)but you don't forget your bff just because you have a husband!


christy nations: You have to keep in mind that the writers were writing in the perspective of an 18 year old. Yes, some of the things were a bit offensive, but that is how almost all of my sister's friends and herself would react. The writers were not purposely attempting to offend anyone nor were they trying to poke fun. They were only trying to write realistic dialogue for a young adult. anuflas: I have to agree. I can't wait for the Derek/Chief showdown!!! It's going to be soooo intense


I think that Mark and Lexie, being the MerDer 2.0, are on the MerDer path of S2. I personally think that Mark deserves a woman and Lexie a life to live but time will tell. I'm more excited to see the Derek/Chief showdown. If anyone saw the promo pics for 6x13 (State of Love and Trust), SPOILER ALERT...Derek becomes interim chief, so next week it's all going down.


I have always loved this show , since the start. But last nights episode was not only offensive but mean. I have a grandson that had ABS but the doctor did not test or catch the problem until it was too late. He had his leg amputated from just below the knee down. He is not a gimp! Nor is he deformed. He is a georgous 3year old that will have to have the bone amputated every 18months until he stops growing. So instead of nasty comments the show had a perfect oppertunity to bring to light an issue that plagues 1 in 112,000 children . Doctors need to check for this in children , but tend to drop the ball. Thumbs down to the writer's , you could have helped families- but you made fun instead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
