I agree that Debbie A. was great in this episode. I'm not interested in Bailey's love life so I FF through it. I really wish for Derek and Meredith to adopt Zola. But it's going to be tough. And Callie is definitely the most underused character so far. I can't believe that even Teddy, Jackson and April have more screentime then her. And those characters barely have fans support. I hope for good medical cases for Callie, scenes with other docs and for her to be shown as a caring mother.
@Jamie....I think Jackson was adopted as a baby. There was a mention of it when he first arrived on the scene. There were rumors when he first appeared that he could have been Ellis and Richards love child.
@Jamie I think that Catherine married Harper Avery's son, which would be the reason Jackson is bi-racial (just a thought). It was never made perfectly clear.
* clothes, not furniture.
@ Dr.CerrenoMD - did you really just use the word "colored"? oh wow! a whole television show full of African American's playing MD's, the shows creator is African American - and were still colored? well damn. To answer your question..."I just wanna know how his Grandfather is white and the mother and the son are coloured. " It's probably because Harper Avery married a BLACK women - and made Catherine Avery - who probably turned around and married a BLACK man - and made Jackson Avery. Please refer to people of color as "Black or African American" it's BEYOND rude to refer to us as "Colored". And I'm not trying to bit your head off - just saving you from a world of hurt - cause the next black person may not be too receiving of being called a "colored".
Fave scene, the painful elevator scene with MerDer and janet. No words were needed to show how painful Zola's not being with MerDer is.
Jackson's mom was Ok as a visitor, no way she'd move to Seattle for her career. This is a ruse to raise our interest in Avery and inject a bit of doubt as to how successfully he's replaced Mark in Lexie's heart.
I was surprised to see how quickly Eli was dropped as Bailey's love interest. Is he gonna make a comeback,not sure. I'm wondering if Shonda feels bad about Off the Map failing, hence Ben's return?
I'd rather see MerDer get pregnant, but I do want them to have a family. As long as we don't see their only scenes talking about Zola all the time. IMO Zola will be living with them by 8.10 at the very latest.
We saw so much of MerDer being underused recently. With such a big cast it is a bit like who's turn is it to step up with a SL. I like the original cast having a higher profile in their SL's
Best Scene: Christina and Zola. I thought it was cute and funny. She mite not want babies, but she was great with her. I chose this scene because it also sets up for the drama that will ensue between Owen and her in a few eps.
Loved Mama Avery, best scenes ever. I just wanna know how his Grandfather is white and the mother and the son are coloured. I'm not being Racist, I am just curious. I think Katherine will be a good shoulder for Richard if and when Adele passes. They didn't have chemistry per se, but something could develop. Debby Allen is a good actress!
I will get a Team Ben T-Shirt. I like Jason George as an actor more than Daniel Sunjata. Probably because I picture him as the Fashion designer type more than a nurse and love interest for Bailey and he was clearly written to be a fling and give our moral compass some fun.
I wish she would loosen up and let Mer on her service.
They better be getting Zola back asap... I like that Mer was patient with Derek at the star
Favorite scene was Mer leaning on Der in the elevator and singing to Zola. My McDreamy is very slowly getting back to his old self. I want them to have a baby so badly. Don't care if it is Zola, another kid or a McBaby that she gets pregnant with.
Second was Cristina with Zola. Owen not getting how she could be so loving with a baby.
Alex endeared himself to me again.
Bailey and Ben!!
Bring Lexie back. I am definately team Mark and Lexie! More bromance with Derek and Mark not Derek and Owen.
Too much April again!! Maybe she and Jackson can hook up and get fellowships in another town and take Teddy with them.
Mark giving that epic Speech/Quote to Mrs. Avery once again showed that Mark Sloan is in love with Lexie grey. also showed he loves her unconditionally. Lexie seriously needs to open her eyes and dump Jackson once and for all. Chyler is on leave but her rep said she is back for next weeks episode. love that even Mrs. Avery See's that mark is in love with Lexie, yet even with his mother telling him Jackson still doesn't want to see it. Why is he still with Lexie knowing deep down she's never going to love him back.
I don't know about anyone else but Henry had me killing myself laughing about the fish marinade. So did Teddy when she had that awkward moment talking to Bailey about Ben's butt. I LOVE Teddy and Henry.
I do really like Teddy and Henry's romance, they are great together. I believe their talents are undersused, they are great actors and their on screen romance light up the screen; their resume speak for itself. It also true Callie is underused, she is talented. Callie needs to go back and being a great doctor and a mom. What is wrong with arizona asking for paper to be sign so she can have right to sophia as a mom; that could cause legal problem if anything happen to her and callie in the future. I am extremely exhauted about Mer-Der. Now wall the hour of grey's anatomy story is about MerDer & cristina. If that continued I'll switch to CBS at 9 p.m. come back for at 10 for the Practice which is doing pretty good.
Forget the order but here goes:
Favorite scenes were the ones at the end with Cristina talking to Zola while Owen watched. You know what he was thinking about and it was sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. So was the scene with MerDer talking to Zola on the phone and singing "Itsy-Bitsy Spider" to her together. Loved when Derek called her "Zo"; he's coming back slowly to McDreamy status.Again, very sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. Loved it.
I loved Debbie Allen and wish she was a regular. She really brought a spark to this episode.
I liked the person who said Eli and Ben were like caramel and chocolate. I'd partake of both if I were Bailey; why not? :)
Most underused character? Right now I'm happy with the focus on the originals and the fifth-year residents.
1.Fave scene/quote- anything said any scene had with debbie allen.she was a breath of fresh air. Her trying to get keppner laid...her in general.
2. Umm, yes please! While I loved her presence she could have been used better. More with her and Jackson,her and Sloan, her and Lexie. More of her would be great.
3.Its like choosing between chocolate and caramel.Both are sinfully delicious. Have to say Ben. She has a real connection, a potentially real relationship with Ben.
4.Probably and I dont know. They probably will get her, Im not sure if I care enough to see it. Ive been tired of the MerDer chronicles for some time.Its exhausting.
5. Last season I would have had a list a mile long. This season there is an argument for Callie & Lexie. they're both rarely shown.one has a valid excuse over the other, but last year they overdid it with callie&arizona, so Im not complaining at all.So far Im pleased with the balance of screentime for the most part.at the moment I like my callie
Isn't Chyler on leave or something? That means her being underused isn't story wise, and it looks like he has a big storyline next week, so yay! Yeah, Callie is somewhat underused, but then again, She was disproportionately focused on last year, so it all evens out I guess
I loved Debbie Allen, but then who doesn't? Jackson needs to be with April. They have far more chemistry than Jackson and Lexie, plus their characters interacting like that would be HILARIOUS!!! Lexie should be with Sloan, it is the only time she is interesting. If Meredith leaves, Lexie would NOT be able to fill her shoes. But then I mainly watch for Christina, so ehhh whatever.
i agree about callie and chyler leigh was on a vacation so we didn't see a lot of lexie so far but i'm pretty sure she is back full time on the next episode.
Favorite part hands down was when arizona talked to callie at the dinner party. It was very sweet that she started crying when talking about sophia
I think Eli is so much hotter than Ben^^ This man got a handsome face=) I loved how Alex was so concerned about what he should do. You could clearly tell that he was worried he'd lose Mer again! Sweet!=) Jacksons's mother rocked. She was so funny and the way J. responded to her. Hilarious:D. My best's friend father is like his mum. My friend's always like dying of shame for him but everybody else just loves him and want to spent time with the coolest dad ever!
Yes Callie should definitely get more screentime. But my impression anyway is that we have way to many characters on this show by now. I don't know but it seems that they can't do them all justice. Besides so far there wasn't one touching medicine case. I miss crying my heart out over some tragedy! On the other hand I love their focus on the characters. Well I have to say I coudn't stand Owen for the past seasons but now he's kinda grown on me. I really like to see him as chief. Good episode!
Bailey belongs with Ben.
Most moving moment? Arizona to Callie: "she calls me mama" and MerDer singing to Zola. Actually teared up with both scenes.
Underused character? Callie!!! Can someone tell me what happened to her cartilage research? And, how come there are no residents going into Ortho? Callie was always a complete badass in the OR. Even last season when she was pregnant she climbed the table in the OR to fix a kids hip. That was completely hardcore. Where is that Callie? We get a few seconds and a couple of one liners and she's gone. Complete under-use of Sara Ramirez' talent.
I totally agree that Callie is the most underused character, I would like to see her in the ER operating because I feel like last season we didn't see her in there at all. Also, I love Bailey and Ben together!
I still dont see a point with Avery (with or without Lexie) they should uderuse him instead or give him a story line with the useless April.
I really enjoyed his mother though and Alex and Arizona moments.
Bailey and Ben! I like Daniel Sunjata, but Bailey has much more chemistry with Ben.
Keep Eli, Ben left her there are sparks with Eli.
1. Favorite scene was Meredith reaching for Alex's hand when he told her Zola was okay. I adore Alex and love, love, love their friendship.
2. I love Catherine Avery but hate her son. Seeing more of her would involve more of baby boy, too, so no - don't need to see her again.
3. Don't care who Bailey ends up with. Hope it's all off screen, because the cast is already way too cluttered. Best thing about this triangle was that I didn't have to see any of it. I wish the Mark/Lexi/Avery nonsense was like that - invisible.
4. MerDer will end up with a kid, so I don't care how.
5. The most underused character is always Alex. How about we see more of his family? How about he gets a girl friend, or a big medical case? I saw enough of Callie and Lexi last season to last ten lifetimes. Sick of both of them, and have no need to see any more of them.
Finally a episode that I liked. I loved Debbie Allen. Bring her back and make her a regular. Dump Avery. Where's Lexie? I've seen her for maybe 1 minute that includes all episodes to this point. I give Callie & Arizona about 5 minutes of air time. So far I have not enjoyed Greys. The writing is lousy. All the main characters have been invisable. And then you're wondering why the ratings are going down. If you want to bring in new viewers, go back to the way Greys use to be. So far very disapointing.
