Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Migration"

at . Comments

Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!

Our official Grey's Anatomy review broke down last week's episode, "Migration," in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff members Courtney Morrison, Sean McKenna and Christina Tran have assembled for their weekly Q&A discussion.

Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!


1. Mark is torn between Julia, who can give him everything he wants, and Lexie, who has he loved for years. Who's the right choice for McSteamy?

Courtney: Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! I've always been a fan of the odd pairing and when they were together, they both got more screen time. The idea of Julia is nice, but we don't really know the character so who cares what happens to her.

Sean: Lexie, for sure. The two just need to get a room and now!

Christina: Lexie is the ONLY choice.

2. We know three out out of the four residents who passed their boards are definitely planning on leaving Seattle. Who will back out and stay at SGH and who is definitely heading out?

Courtney: Alex will be the one to stay, he won't desert Robbins. Jackson could be the one to leave since he hasn't made his decision yet.

Sean: I honestly haven't a clue. Will all of them stay because they just love Seattle so much?

Christina: I haven't the slightest clue as to who will stay for sure. I've got a feeling that Jackson will leave though.

3. What will happen to April now that all of her offers have been pulled and Hunt let her know he can't keep her next year?

Courtney: I don't know, but girlfriend can't be slamming shots, then running out of a bar. That is a recipe for disaster. She just started to become less annoying, but I'm hoping her character is a goner.

Sean: I've felt like something of an April apologist but her character's been driven into the ground and is more painful to watch than anything. Although I did feel bad when Hunt had to let her go, maybe she'll find a new calling and head off to Private Practice or something.

Christina: Maybe she won't return next season. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping this.

4. A handful of the main docs were involved in a plane crash on their way to a surgery. Who survives? Who doesn't?

Courtney: Well, if the recent contract signings are any indication, Mer, Der, and Cristina are coming out alive. Grey's could totally shock us by killing off Mark or Lexie. Maybe even Callie since she just made that speech to Arizona about never leaving her. In a perfect world, none of them will die!

Sean: None? I know that can't be right. Someone has to bite the big one after a crash like that, but it would be interesting if it was Callie or even Mark.

Christina: What if everyone from the plane crash survives? What if the one person who is supposed to die ends up being someone who wasn't even on the plane?! Maybe April?

5. Make your prediction for the Season 8 finale.

Courtney: Meredith and Derek will survive and decide they don't want to leave Seattle. Cristina will be rattled about the experience and decide to stay where Owen is. A few of them are going to have major injuries and possibly a death. Mark will choose Lexie.

Sean: The crash is going to change a lot of hearts, meaning more doctors will stay than go. Although, I'm sure there will be some twist or death that comes as a real shocker.

Christina: Agreeing with my co-roundtablers. And you can bet I'll come prepared for the finale with a full box of Kleenex.

OMG what a final FLIGHT. When is season 9 starting? I can't wait. They just better all survive. We've already lost Lexie - can't have anyone else dying. Season 9 had better be happier for them ALL!


OMG!!!! I cannot believe Lexie got the axe. Why not April? I was totally in tears:(


Season final was surprising, I hope those alive survive and return next season. Give April a break she represents many of us.


Derek smashed his hand to free himself, because of that he will lose his offer at the other hospital and be forced to stay in Seattle, which will please Meredith. Christina will stay with Owen because she realizes she almost died and she loves him more than anything. I think April will be the one who dies.


Cali was on the plane??
I think Lexie, One of the lesbians (more likly Arazone) or teddy will die!


Teddy hugging Owen is most likely because she is giving him support when they learn that the Cristina & the others did not arrive at Boise Hospital. Something has been nagging at me for a few weeks now that Owen is the one that dies. It just seems that having Owen & Cristina have sex when she is leaving him, was maybe a "good-bye & thanks for loving us as a couple" type thing & I hope I am so wrong!!! All of the Grey's cast will say they are coming back next season - they can't say anything else or they would be giving away who really isn't coming back. If it is not Owen, I don't know who it could be that dies as I am not sure any of the original cast members dies - I am wondering if that is too easy. Shonda never makes things easy ... never. Shonda said we won't see it coming - so we have to think outside of the box. I am not sure the character that dies is a "beloved" one - that word is subjective as to what characters the viewing audience really likes.


Hope it's Arizona who dies, the scenes with her and Callie are sooo irritating, hope she goes and they find a much better actress for Callie, as the actress who plays Arizona is so bad.


My money is on Arizona. If it's not her, then I think it's someone not on the plane.


OMG. Spoiler Alert If you go to the site below you will see about 6 minutes of the show. Mer wakes up and sees Chris and you will see what happens. I must tell you that I was extremely upset with what I saw. You will see Derek wake up after he hears Mer calling him. His hand is stuck in a piece of the plane and he tries to get it out to go to Mer. I am so upset and cannot believe that this is only the start of a very long night. I can't imagine what will happen to end this show. Everyone there is alive for now and I only hope they get help soon. They all have injuries. http://www.hollywoodreporter.c... When you r at the site scroll down to the video. Beware spoiler.


1. i think he should choose neither. he only loves julia because she can give him what he wants, and that's not fair. but he and lexie were never good together and they need to realize that.
2. i think most of them will stay, but i'm interested to see what kind of far-fetched ploy shonda uses to justify it.
3. my hope is that april goes away forever.
4. i think it could be mark, and they're pulling a private practice on us where he looks fine but then bleeds out. i have no predictions anymore, but maybe it's no one from the crash and it's someone at the hospital. SURPRISE!
5. i think arizona gets srsly injured, which will put her on leave from surgery [maternity leave], and meredith and derek will decide to stay, even though it's really stupid for their careers.
