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.

I agree with smileyglen's comment, why did Mer offer to take in Avery and Lexie. One of them has to be sleeping in the attic space. Mer never gets a chance to work with Der, something always prevents it. And when are Cris, Alex and Mer gonna graduate to their fourth year choices of surgical career? Although we know Alex and Cris' choice! I seem to recall when they were 4th year residents, Bailey and Torres were always doing surgeries on their own, no attendings in sight

Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never? PLEASE STOP WITH THOSE TWO...I DON'T LIKE THEM... So i think never never and never. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time? CALLIE AND MARK, ESPECIALLY TOGHETER... AND ALEX... AND BAILEY...

So far this season the episodes have lacked something, each time the show ends I find myself with more questions than I had before. The emotion that used to be apart of the show is not there, something has truly changed between the actors or something because everyone seems to be an arms length away. However I truly feel that the past couple seasons have had some big dry spells and I am hoping that Shonda gets the dry writing out early. I know that she plans the finale and writes from one finale to the next finale but I wonder if these are early episodes are truly needed. I wish Derek and Amelia would have had more screen time and I that the scenes with Derek and Meredith would not have always included Christina or Amelia . . . I hope next week is better . . .

Just had a thought now that Lexie and Alex have broken up, did Lexie move back home to her father? There hasn't been any hints, only that Lexie had her mental break at work and Alex just let Lexie fall apart it was Mark who stepped up to give Lexie the help she needed.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? "Karev you stink" from the Chief. 2. Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never? I'm hoping for sooner rather than later, but after witnessing Mark taking Amelia into his apartment, I don't think Lexie will approach him too soon after that. 3. More surprising: April being a virgin or Cristina having another freak-out in the OR? Cristina not so much, she is still traumatized by the shooting, she's still in shock and maybe some fear that she can't do better because that was her best work, the fact she operated solo and saved Derek, she didn't need an attending to give her advice on what to do next, that probably has her just as scared. April being a virgin no big surprise, she grew up on a farm, it would have been frowned upon and widely spoken about town if she were to sleep around, I hope she finds a nice young man to fall in love with and if she is as old fashioned as she seems she will have to get married first. 4. Are you beginning to like April or do you still loathe her? She's growing on me, I like how Meredith gently reminds her to shut up, or to butt out. And I like how April looks to Meredith for assistance when dealing with patients, before she would have just killed them. I'd like to know exactly when Jackson and April moved into Derek and Meredith's, I'm guessing it had to have been sometime after the shooting and while Lexie was in psych for that week. And just how many bedrooms does Meredith's house have, I know there is an attic, because Lexie use to hide Mark up there, there's Meredith's room, Alex's room, Izzie's/now Lexie's room, the study (did Derek give up the study now that the house in the woods is being built)? 5. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time? Teddy less screen time only if she is moping around all the time. More Chief and his dancing for sure, more Bailey now she's single again, more Meredith and Derek, more Mark and Lexie trying to get back together, more Jackson, less Arizona and Callie after trying to kick Cristina out of her own home, they are acting like a couple of bitches if you ask me, Cristina and Owen have just as much rights to live there if they want too. If Arizona is so uncomfortable there, they should move not Cristina and Owen.

this show lacks raw emotion which it had earlier...they are more about introducing rare medical cases to woo viewers....it was balanced before in seasons 1 to 3..but lately, they are just treading water....in real life, i cant see people like alex, april and jackson having drinks togather... especially lexie wouldnt join as she just broke up with alex....and cmon....u want mark to be a stand up guy or not...choose one..he banged every sister derek has...and they are still friends??u guys think its cue but its not....can that really happen???make him look pathetic...that would be a nice change of pace....alex and jackson should not get along...u can drag the story for a little bit with that....

What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
- At Joe's bar, when April finally stood uo for herself. "We all have things we don't talk about" 2. Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never?
- I hope they'll get back together. I liked Alex and Lexie together, but let's face it, Alex didn't love Lexie at much as Mark loves her. It's sweet. 3. More surprising: April being a virgin or Cristina having another freak-out in the OR?
- aaah, I really don't know. It's abit weird that April is a virgin, especially because sex is such a big thing on this show. 4. Are you beginning to like April or do you still loathe her?
- actullly, am I beginning to like her. But she's never going to be one of my favourites. She is still abit annoying. 5. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time?
- We seriusly need more Alex. And some more Alex/Mer-time. And what about his 'Izzie you came back' ? is that just comepletely forgotten? And maybe som more Chief.
And I have seen enough of Teddy. She's not that interesting.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Derek/Cristina Derek/Amy 2. Do you think that Mark and Lexie will get back together soon, later, or never? I don't really care. But I guess they will. 3. More surprising: April being a virgin or Cristina having another freak-out in the OR? Cristina's freak out. Poor Cris. I hope she gets better. 4. Are you beginning to like April or do you still loathe her? I still don't like her. One of the biggest reasons is that my favourite character's screentime is with her. Also it's painful to watch her as a surgeon. 5. After this third episode, which character do you feel needs more/less screen time? Less- Arizona, April, Teddy, Lexie More- Meredith, Alex

Most surgeons grew up as freaks. While other kids played outside, we hold up in our rooms memorizing our periodic table, hovering for hours over our junior microscopes, dissecting our first frogs.
