Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "One Step Too Far"
Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Our official Grey's Anatomy review broke down last week's episode, "One Step Too Far," in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff writers Courtney Morrison, Sean McKenna and Christina Tran have assembled for their weekly Round Table Q&A to further debate, discuss and dissect the goings on at Seattle Grace/Mercy West.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
Courtney: Have to go with the exchange between Meredith, Cristina, and Alex about Morgan the intern and and comparing her to Rebecca. It was easily the funniest part of the hour.
Sean: Sloan once again attempting to get Jackson laid. Childish? Yes. Hilarious. Double yes.
Christina: I laughed the most when Cristina, Meredith and Alex were rummaging through the fridge clearly eating lunches that didn’t belong to them. This scene totally screamed the very unforgettable “YOU ATE MY SANDWICH?!” bit by Ross from Friends as April walked in.
2. Should Meredith stay put with General Surgery or head back to Neuro?
Courtney: Even though she has done well in Neuro, she's better off in General Surgery. It expands her skill set and gives her more mentors to work with (Bailey & Webber). Plus, I am not interested in watching her and Derek battle it out over work again.
Sean:I like her in General. She may be skilled at neuro but working in the same specific area with your husband is sure to just cause relationship problems and I'd rather not see them in more fighting ways.
Christina: I’m not entirely sure where she should ultimately end up, but Meredith’s obviously not ready to go back to neuro just yet.
3. Owen admitted to cheating on Cristina. Is this relationship over?
Courtney: I hope so! I have always been a big fan of these two (second of course to Preston Burke), but this has got to be the end. Being angry is not an excuse for cheating. If you want to be with someone else, split up before doing so. Owen just dropped in my list of favorites, big time.
Sean: I'm kind of shocked at Owen. I can only feel as if there is more to the story, something Owen hasn't fully disclosed. Can they really expect to fully come back from all their drama?
Christina: I’m with Courtney on this one and do hope so. However, I haven’t always been a fan of these two so I think they should definitely part ways. Also, I’m not sold on the fact that Owen really did cheat. More on that coming up next.
4. Who did Owen cheat on Cristina with?
Courtney: No clue! The show developed with Emily so that we would believe it to be her. My next guess would be Teddy but she still hates him for lying about Henry's death. My next best guess is just a random, maybe a nurse he picked up at Joe's Bar?
Sean: I agree with Christina about there being more to the story than just simple cheating. The man needs to fully explain what cheating actually means rather than giving everyone the assumption of what it means.
Christina: Like I said earlier, I am not totally sure that Owen really did cheat in a physical sense. What if the words he uttered had a deeper meaning or he needs further explanation? This is a drama, after all, and things get twisty and complex with words alone.
5. With a cast this big, it’s hard for all characters to get enough screen time. Who deserves more and why?
Courtney: Since Mark and Jackson are getting ample time with their bromance, I'm choosing Callie. The girl has been on the show forever. She is hardcore and is usually the voice of reason while bringing some laughs. Give her some extreme cases again like when she made the girl have a straight spine with Derek in the beginning of the show. Or at least some funny convos with BFF Mark.
Sean: I think Lexie needs more than just her pining after Mark story but for the most part the show does a good job of rotating the characters to the forefront of episodes. I'm ok for the most part with everyone getting their chance to be on screen.
Christina: I’d actually love to see more storylines involving Lexie outside of Slexie and her babysitting Zola. Remember how brilliant her photographic memory was? She’s a Grey, and she’s clearly got what it takes to be one heck of a surgeon so more Lexie, please.
