Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Superfreak"

by at . Comments

Welcome to the TV Fanatic Grey's Anatomy Round Table, in which our panelists discuss the burning questions from the previous episode of the long-running ABC drama.

The topics for our "Superfreak" Round Table Q&A and TV Fanatic's take ...

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

L.J. Gibbs: I loved the DerStina component to this week's episode, specifically this plea: "You're flaming out. And as someone who cares about you, it's not okay. I have seen a lot of residents come and go and very very few with your potential. It's not okay."

M.L. House: April's "I'm a virgin. That doesn't make it drinks conversation. We all have stuff we don't talk about." Such cute ignorance. Has she never watched Grey's Anatomy? Sex talk makes up three-quarters of every episode!

Mrs. Northman: Meredith: "Oh April. I'm liking you more and more." I couldn't agree more with Meredith. April is definitely starting to hold her own, especially after she got over her crush on Derek and put everyone in their place.

RT, Greys

2. Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never?

L.J. Gibbs: Never. Never, ever again.

M.L. House: Soon. They love each other. That's always enough, unless your husband's hands have turned into tree branches. Then you've gotta get out. That's just gross.

Mrs. Northman: Most likely later. I do believe that these two are MFEO. I just don't understand why everything concerning love on this show is such a struggle. Why can't we have one simply happy couple?

3. More surprising: April being a virgin or Cristina having another freak-out in the OR?

L.J. Gibbs: The extent of Cristina's issues has definitely been a surprise this season, at least in my mind. If anyone would be immune to PTSD, or get over it quickly, I'd assume it would be Cristina Yang. Instead, her road looks like it will be among the hardest.

M.L. House: Cristina. Like Dwayne Johnson during his professional wrestling days, I always thought she was the rock of the hospital.

Mrs. Northman: April being a virgin! I didn't even know 28 year-old virgins existed! All kidding aside, I do give her props for holding out and waiting for the right guy... wish I did that!

Yang in Thought

Cristina's lingering issues came as a surprise to some.

4. Are you beginning to like April or do you still loathe her?

L.J. Gibbs: I like her and not just because she's a virgin or because she stopped meddling with MerDer (although for that we are all grateful). There's a human quality, a certain vulnerability to April that runs counter to many surgeons' cocky nature. Plus, Sarah Drew is cute.

M.L. House: She's fine. But the writers conveniently making her a virgin, just to turn her into a sympathetic character? That I don't like.

Mrs. Northman: See my answer to question 1, please and thank you.

5. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time?

L.J. Gibbs: Ugh. Derek has been way too involved so far this season. I can't look at that face anymore. Just kidding. Everyone still reading? Sorry. In all seriousness, I think we need some shirtless Jackson, STAT. Grey's Anatomy spoiler alert: Prayers answered next week!

M.L. House: The Chief always needs more screen time. Preferably in his office, while dancing.

Mrs. Northman: Jackson! He so needs more screen time! He's a total babe and I really want to see him with the right lady.

What do you think? Weigh in with your own answers/comments!

Hey, this time, House, Northman, & Gibbs, your discussion rocked, IMO. Many, many interesting & insightful comments. The questions didn't bother me (for once) :) I would've liked to read the rest of April's dialogue when she starts with the virgin issue... all the others' issues that noone speaks about. That was strong and brave, and warranted Meredith saying she's liking her more and more. Now I need to go and play the episode back so I can capture that dialogue. And what's wrong with her being a virgin anyway? I sure wish I'd waited! LOL. (or sobbing tears, take your pick!)

Gibbs, I love you for this: Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never? L.J. Gibbs: Never. Never, ever again.

Why do people still keep saying they want Callie and mark together? She is a LESBIAN!!!! Thats like saying when are they going to put Mark and Derek together.

Avatar

is it just me or are the ruining Arizona this season? I really loved her before but the seem to be making her really bitchy and insensitive which seems completely out of character.

I certainly do not get the A/C situation and why everyone is negative on them, it is obvious from their actions and what Callie said to Mer, O/C planned on moving out. Once Mer explained the depth of Christina's situation A/C realized the situation and resolved themselves to living in a "frat house". Now O/C want to move again so what is the deal people? They weren't insensitive when they didn't realize the depth of the PTSD...they are great together, can't wait for more of them when JCap comes back from mat leave.

@Jay Yes I would call Cristina a bitch if she acted like one, she hasn't and for the record I like Callie and Arizona together, I just don't how they are treating Cristina. You have to remember it is Cristina's and Callie's apartment, Cristina was the one who put the down payment on it in the first place. And to stop further arguments all of them should move out of the apartment and all get new places, that would be far to both couples neither of them will feel like they were the injured parties by getting kicked out. It's an apartment building surely there are more apartments available to rent or buy. And for that matter being an apartment so close to the hospital, I'm surprised the hospital hasn't bought it so new doctors could move there, I know some hospitals use to have nurses quarters, or is that just an Australian thing we do here. We actually house nurses and doctors on hospital property.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Der comparing Cristina and Mer to ET and Elliot. classic 2. Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never? I hope so! I love them together, I love Mark, and Chyler Leigh is doing amazing as Lexie!! 3. More surprising: April being a virgin or Cristina having another freak-out in the OR? Neither, kind of expected Cristina to have another freak out. Her post traumatic stress isnt going to go away over night, and April told Gary Clark that she had never been loved, so I kind of figured that 4. Are you beginning to like April or do you still loathe her? I like her. She never really bugged me. Her character is supposed to be a little on the annoying side, but I'm warming up to her more and more 5. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time? Less? Teddy More? Alex and Lexie...just not together!

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
April : I'm a 28 year old virgin- that doesn't make it drinks conversation!!
Mer: April, I'm liking you more and more.. 2. Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never?
I wish they would get back together soon!! Although logic tells me, it would't be that soon... 3. More surprising: April being a virgin or Cristina having another freak-out in the OR?
Both not that surprising, considering Cristina is still having PTSD and April being an seemingly innocent and naive character.. 4. Are you beginning to like April or do you still loathe her?
April is starting to grow on me a bit.. 5. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time?
More: The 6 originals and Mark and Lexie
Less: Teddy and Callie and Arizona (although I like Callie)

More Callie and Arizona!!! They have a HUGE following and for the few people on this site that have an issue with them as a couple, your prejudice is obvious. Get over yourselves. Callie and Mark will not be again...Arizona is Callie's choice and you need to just deal with it. They weren't acting like 'bitches' as one of you said. And, if it were Cristina trying to kick Callie out I doubt you would have even called HER that! And might I add...I am NOT gay but I love them together.

Duh! I meant to say about Kepner not Lexie. Less screen time, I vote Altman. She's there as a cardio god for Cris. I hope she avoids Avery cos that'll be an eewww euck moment
