Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "I Saw Her Standing There"

at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "I Saw Her Standing There" 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. What was your favorite scene from the episode?

Courtney: No doubt about it, Jackson and Webber's "man to man" chat. These two were hilarious when it came to dealing with Catherine. I found myself hoping that she sticks around just so we can have more tension filled, funny situations with the boys!

Sean: Cristina and Thomas in pretty much everything. These two have great chemistry together and I love that she was able to assist him.

Christina: I'm with Sean on this one. Oh, Mr. Feeny, I've missed you terribly. I think Cristina's growing as she's teaching him a thing or two as well.

2. Cristina sleeping with her chief. Worst idea she has had yet?

Courtney: WORST IDEA EVER. First of all, she barely knows him and he's definitely a lot older than she is. I get that the girl likes her men in charge, but this guy is not it! He's trying to push her only real friend out of the hospital and put her in the middle of it. Plus, she is still married! Yang needs to spend her days learning from the ancient Dr. Thomas or get home to Seattle where her people are.

Sean: Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say bad bad move, especially because it's her boss. I forsee bad consequences because of it.

Christina: Definitely. I'm not too sure what she sees in the chief. I find him intolerable.

3.  Most promising potential couple - Jackson & April or Webber & Catherine?

Courtney: How can I choose? Seriously, I love them both. Jackson and April fit together. They are uncomfortable and awkward - the way new relationships usually are, especially when they are happening at work. Catherine and Webber have some experience under the belt and are pretty much at the same place in their lives (except for Adele off in that home). I want both to work out, at least for a while!

Sean: Jackson and April. I think the two work well together even if each time they hook up is always the last time they'll hook up.

Christina: Is there an option for neither? I get that there might be too many that feel this way, but I just don't care for, buy or ship for either couple.

4. Arizona is moving forward with her recovery. Who will be the one to help her get back to her old self?

Courtney: One man - Alex Karev. He will be able to push her and tell her what she needs to hear. He won't sugar coat anything for her but will be there for her regardless. These two work well together and he will definitely be the one to get her back to the Arizona Robbins we love.

Sean: Karev? Maybe Callie if Arizona can warm up to her. It's not going to be an easy path for her but she does have people that want to help.

Christina: Alex and Callie, obviously. However, I actually "can't hardly wait" to see Arizona work with the physical therapist more often. See what I did there...

5. Owen Hunt. Feel bad for him or he has earned the lonely situation he has gotten himself into?

Courtney: Tough call. On one hand, the man lost his wife to another hospital (and another guy's bed), as well as his BFF Teddy. He doesn't have too many friends around either. But on the other hand, he cheated on his wife and told Teddy to leave. He is definitely lonely, which is sad, but I can't help but think he got himself into this tough time.

Sean: In a way he put himself in the position, but I do feel bad for the guy. Everybody makes mistakes and he seems to be trying to head back towards something good. Maybe being out in the woods will help him out.

Christina: I'm feeling a bit of both for Owen. Perhaps the woods will give him the space he needs though to just be alone and figure it all out.

What do you all think of this week's Grey's Anatomy? Share your responses in the comments below!


Why dosent Cristina just file for divorce. Then she can be with anyone she wants without cheating and want have anytype of connection with Owen anymore. Kill two birds with one stone.


Question- for anyone who is reading. Does Zola have something wrong with her? I forget what...she was one of the kids brought over from africa and was being treated for something. What was she being treated for? And does she still have it? Because that could be a story arc for MerDer, Zola getting really sick and getting through that???


1. Mer/Der scenes...esp in new house w/reference back to her 1st surgery w/Der in Season1, Epi 1.
2. Good SL...then when she realized what an arse he is, she dumps him.
3. I'm with Christina on this one...NEITHER. April & Jackson have 0 chemistry; Catherine is totally overacted...don't like her much.
4. No opinion.
5. I don't like Owen w/Cristina...never have. Really hope they never get back together.


1.Any MerDer hot stuff is great. But Cris Thomas, who'd have thought. I have a feeling Thomas will suffer a heart attack in some future episode,and Cris won't be able to save him.
2.It has to be a disaster and be a complete contrast to what happens with her husband. But she's sleeping with another cardio god, but he's euck!
4.Frome the spoilers I've read I'm wondering if unfullfilled(surgically) Bailey is gonna get to work in peads with Arizona.
5.Hunt's still wearing his wedding ring.He's coping and resigned to Cris not returning. Cris will be back, but I don't see that she would ever want children.I think Hunt would rather be with her than without her.


I love greys anatomy so much and I will be a doctor in future


seeing cristina with dr. thomas was one of the highlights. I also liked arizona and her steps toward recovery.
indeed cristina's stupidest decisions in sleeping with parker.
Alex will be the one to really help arizona in recovery and callie will be there when arizona finally fully forgives her.
owen created his own problems but i cant help and feel bad for him he's so lonely


I agree about Bailey Sa'ad702, I am so disappointed about what they're doing with her character. First she's gone so soft, and now it seems like she's not valued as much as even the younger attendings. Even April has a more interesting storyline than her. I say bring old Bailey back! I always imagined she'll be Chief one day, but if she keeps this up, Meredith might beat her to it.


1.Callie and Owen have a drink at the bar, science/chemistry
2.gross, bad taste! I don't know what shonda's thinking?
3.I can imagine Jackson+ April+ Webber+Catherine will be a happy family
4.hope to see a brave AZ standing up soon, not always make Callie sad
5. Love is love,no matter where Cristina is, she'll come back to Owen in the future,bz Mer tell Cri everthing about SGMW, she knows she's still the love of Owen, nothing change,


1. Cristina/Dr Thomas scenes! I love it when we get to see how much heart Cristina has despite her reputation of being selfish and cold.
2. Saw it coming. I said last week that Cristina will grow in this new hospital before going back to SG, and I think this will make forgive Owen more easily.
3. I don't care for both couples, but I love that Webber is really showing that he is the wise man in town. I love those scenes when he put Jackson in his place!
4. Alex and Callie. This one's obvious. Or maybe Derek, as he's the teacher nowadays and he's been in similar situations.
5. Feel bad for him. I just hope the move will help him get better and not sink deeper. I still believe he'll get back together with Cristina at some point.


* got cut off! She had to find a new path for herself. Letting someone that you care and love is very hard to do and he did it. He is a generally stand up guy.

Grey's Anatomy Season 9 Episode 4 Quotes

Meredith: This is a cry for help.
Cristina: No, this is a cry for an orgasm.

The clothes a surgeon wears help to present an image. The lab coats and badges and scrubs all work together to indicate a person of authority, someone you can trust. When the clothes come off, that's a different story. We're sensitive, lonely, human.
