Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Love the One You're With"

at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Love the One You're With" in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff members Courtney Morrison, Sean McKenna and Steve Marsi 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: I’m going for the funnier moments. Equally loved Bailey’s post it notes and Mer and Avery talking about Webber.

Sean: Thomas and Christina at the end. There wasn't a huge speech or anything but a level of understanding that worked perfectly. Plus, I'm kind of liking her new co-workers.

Steve: Arizona and Callie's bathroom scene (below). It's hard to call any scene a "favorite" if it's so hard to watch, but Jessica Capshaw is kind of rocking my world with this storyline.

2. What pairing was funnier - Alex and Callie discussing their past and Alex’s sleeping habits or Meredith and Jackson discussing Webber sleeping with their moms?

Courtney: Definitely Meredith and Jackson. These two don’t share enough scenes together! They were hilarious in admitting that Webber had game. Both of their moms are world class surgeons and both have been with Richard. Looks to me like Webber is the man!

Sean: Alex and Callie for sure. Both of them can dish it and take it. And as much as Alex is a jerk, he cracks me up because he's so nonchalant about it.

Steve: Both were great for laughs and pointing out some of the show's soapier storylines. If forced to choose I'd pick Meredith and Jackson, because Richard is definitely kind of the man, and because of the conspiracy theories that he was actually Mer's dad at one point. It's good that Grey's doesn't take itself too seriously ... at least not all the time.

3. Up for debate again: Does Yang stay at her new hospital or return to Seattle and her people?

Courtney: She has to return at some point, right? I’m afraid that they are going to keep them separated all season and that will get old. But I have to admit, I’m starting to like Cristina’s new co-workers.

Sean: I think the new place is helping her cope and grow because it is so different. That said, she will definitely return and maybe they'll bring Thomas with her?

Steve: She'll come back, because how can she not, but Sean could be onto something re: Thomas. The show's doing a nice job in placing her in a realistic and not entirely negative environment, though. It would be too cliched if she hated life and everyone around her and boarded a plane back to Seattle within a week.

4. Did they make the right decision in not accepting the settlement?

Courtney: Is there a right decision? Sure, the money would help. It could pay for Arizona’s rehab, their children’s futures. But Mer was right. It won’t bring back Lexie or Sloan. Derek wanting them to investigate into the accident more was honorable though. I’d say they did the right thing. 

Sean: That's a tough one because the money could really help, but I understand their sentiments on not settling. It just feels like that's the right call.

Steve: It's easy to say they should've taken the money for obvious reasons, but the more idealistic decision was to not settle, and you can't fault them for that either. How's that for a non-answer?!

5. Jackson and April hooked up again. Will these two become the next great couple or a disaster waiting to happen?

Courtney: I want them to be a couple! It gives each of them are better story and they have great chemistry. My vote is for a long lasting couple... as long as Kepner doesn’t freak out again. 

Sean: They have great chemistry and that scene where they were talking about not doing unless they really want to, I was waiting for them to jump each other. I think it's too soon to tell either way, but let's just say it's going to be a bumpy road for sure.

Steve: Every great couple is a disaster at some point. Otherwise, how do we know what they're really made of? Jackson and April won't be any different, but I think they're a great long-term fit for each other and am excited to watch how things progress. Great chemistry too (see classic Season 8 scene below).

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


I actually really love April and Jackson together. Their chemistry are awesome! I wasn't too keen on them in the beginning but they've really grown on me since.


It is not odd that April is an attending. She has finished her residency. She is not a board certified attending.


Anyone else find it odd that Kepner is instantly an attending even though she failed her boards? It seems to me that if Hunt is bringing her back..she should be a resident pending passing the boards...she could even come back to being chief resident until she proves herself.


Why they had to kill off Mark & Lexie why couldent they kill off April she is annoying wish they get rid of her.


@Cecilie Sølvsten, actually, Derek doesn't earn 2 million dollars a year, you're referring to the fact he earns the hospital 2 million dollars a year through his services - mentioned by Richard in Season 2 after he punches Mark.


1. Bailey and the post-it notes. LOL.
3. Cristina's not happy unless she's miserable. She'll be back soon.
5. April is a grating nitwit. Owen is such an idiot for bringing her back. How many times can one person get fired from the same job?! Most boring pairing ever. It's too bad there are no adult women in Seattle for Avery and Alex to hook up with.


1. The Callie and Arizona shower scene!! 2. Mer and Jackson. 4. It was the right decision. 5. I would love to see April and Jackson end up together.


2.Mer telling Avery off about Kepner
3.No surprise that Thomas is gaining Cris' respect. Not looking forward to seeing Cris hook up with Palmer.Cris being at Mayo still has SL possibilites, but Cris will at somepoint realise she's not happy
4. Don't get why Arizona's rehab wouldn't be covered by her employers. Wouldn't there be an inquiry as to why the plane crashed anyway?The plane passengers are just delaying payment.It feels like SL manipulation.
5.Very soon,Avery will suggest they get married cos of guilt for getting Kepner pregnant. Nothing is ever straight forward for any GA couples


1. Merder making out amongst their daughter's toys


1. Calzona shower scene. Great performance from both, but I give it to Sara R. Callie's pain just seemed to explode in that shower, and it was amazing to watch.
2. Mer and Jackson. We've gotta admit Webber's got game, and I agree that these two have so much in common, but this hasn't been highlighted for the longest time.
3.I thought at first that Cristina will be so unhappy at her new hospital she'd come running back to SG, but now I realize that it's therapy! This new hospital will make her better and improved Cristina will come back to Seattle and Owen's waiting arms.
4. Tough choice, but the honorable route is always a safe bet.
5. Never cared for these two much.
