Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Remember the Time"

by at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Remember the Time" 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: I LOVED Cristina telling Owen about the time in the forest while he gave her a bath. Spectacular acting by Sandra Oh once again. Talking about the animals trying to eat Lexie and the bugs in Arizona's leg... heartbreaking stuff right there. Girlfriend already needs an Emmy for Grey's Anatomy Season 9 and it's only Episode 2.

Christina: Bailey: "All I keep thinking is that we are going to crash on a tropical island and get attacked by a polar bear." Sigh, I still miss LOST.

Sean: Cristina listening to a message from Meredith and calling her to tell her she was her person. These two are just made for each other.

2. Of the survivors, whose life is changing the most?

Courtney: The obvious answer is Arizona, but I'm going with Yang. She's always been the tough one and able to handle crazy situations. She operated with a shooter there, she was there for the bomb explosion. She has always been one to thrive in stressful situations. But how much can she handle before she actually breaks? Between being with her father when he passed, Burke getting shot then later leaving her, 007, Teddy's husband, operating with a shooter, the bomb... something has got to give. I'm thinking the tough Cristina we once knew is gone.

Christina: Arizona. What is she going to do?! Callie was right: the old Arizona is clearly gone. 

Sean: Cristina because she just doesn't have the same coping capabilities as Meredith. And being in the new place without that support system? She's gone through so many crazy things that it's going to be hard to be the exact same Cristina we once knew.

3. Did you get all of the answers you were looking for or do you think that too many plot holes were left open?

Courtney: Ehhh... not really. I would have liked to see Cristina get better and out of the hospital as well as some type of explanation about Mark's issues. I felt like the Arizona and Derek arc were wrapped up nice though.

Christina: No, like Courtney, I wanted and found myself needing to know more about Mark's digressing condition.

Sean: I think it did a decent job with what happened, but I'm more interested in seeing the characters overcome the situation. It was such a dramatic turn of events that I'm curious to see how everyone moves forward.

4. Do you think Cristina will come back to SGH? If so, why and when?

Courtney: She has to, it's not the same without her! She will be back because her people are at SGH... her husband, her best friend, her life. Plus, she really doesn't fit in at her new hospital so it will only be a matter of time until she has had enough. I'm guessing by episode five she will be back to being Yang, the legend.

Christina: Of course Cristina will eventually be back. With the way things are looking for her, I'll give it one to two more episodes for her return.

Sean: Yes, this is Grey's Anatomy. They can prolong it all they want but she belongs there. I've never doubted that she'll be back.

5. Mark Sloan had a proper send off. Lexie? Not so much. She has hardly been mentioned in the first two episodes of the season. What's the deal?

Courtney: It's almost like she didn't exist! Although, she had a sad sendoff in the finale, she deserves more than a quick mention here and there. She was Mer's sister, Derek's sister in law and mentee at one point, Sloan's love, and Jackson's girlfriend. I would like to see how they react to the loss of this important character. 

Christina: It's messed up! I loved Lil' Grey, and she deserved so much more than a mention here or there. I'm still not sure why the writers didn't try to at least include a scene or two with her in the season premiere along with Sloan's flashbacks.  

Sean: I feel like her send off was in the season finale. It was well done and as sad as it was it closed her chapter. I think if they spent more time with Lexie again, it could have taken away from Sloan's goodbye.

Of late, I've been finding this show either confusing with too many flashbacks to figure out or else just plain boring. Everyone in it is a sniveling baby--esp. Christina and Meridith (maybe not in this episode). And speaking of babies, I can't see Meridith and Derek with Zola. There was never a bonding time. Derek said, "Isn't she cute? Let's adopt her," and that was that. A lot of better shows bit the dust. Why is this one still around?

I think the reason for the viewing rates that dropped for greys is because someone always seams to die in the final episode of each season, why is that? And i know budget wise the cast had to be cut, but you cant have a Doctors series with little cast... People love Greys Anatomy and all the characters in it... keep things happy for a change!

Favorite scene of the epsoide?
My favorite scene of the epsoide is between two scene the scene at the begining of the epsoide with Meredith, Dr.Webber, Bailey, and Zola. How Meredith seem to relax when she see them and she hold her baby tell her that her mommy is right there. And the phone call Meredith made to Christina. The person who life changed the most after the plane crash? I can't pick one all there life change in one way or another but levels of darkness is just differnt but if I had to really pick I'll have to say Arizona. You never really seen her so dark not even after shooting or the accident her and Callie was in. All my question was answered for the most part but what happen to the pilot. Did he die the only known is that he was parlyzed. I do think Christina will come back SGMW it is her home she just need a break from home. She will maybe be back at SGMW after Meredith and Christina centred epsoide. Lexie had a good send off to me. She was a belove and I would not want her to suffer a plane was on top her I would have wanted it to end fast for her. As far as them not mentioning her they do in small part but in a big way that is shocking. In the first epsoide she was mention twice and the second she was mention 3 time. But give it a few epsoides when Meredith finally deal with. She just been working and caring about Derek, Zola, and everbody else. But, when something actually make he come to the fact that her sister is dead I think that it will be more talk of Lexie. Because Meredith to move on look at how long it took her really deal with Omally's death.

You can't blame Arizona for being so upset and angry. She's a young woman that has lost one leg people ! It's horrible, and i think if it was happening to you you'd be angry as well, even if you're alive. Come on, you can't expect someone to adjust so quickly to such an accident and a loss, even if she's alive. i'm sure she'll come around later, but right now she is free to process this in the way she can !

I get why people think Arizona is having a hard time but i mean come on....she LIVED and thats more than can be said about some of the other characters. And instead of being happy in the slightest bit that she can still be with her daughter and be there for her unlike Mark...she just lashes out at everyone and is super mean.
I feel the most for Cristina.
And I think it is very strange that Meredith isn't more upset about Lexie In an interview with Ellen Pompeo she said that she doesn't think /meredith's character is believable bc she always chooses Cristina over Derek and Ive really been noticing that she does do that... Mark dies and instead of being there for Derek she leaves without even telling him.
I understand that she wanted to visit Cristina but she could have waited a few days....

i think the person in the body bag was lexies remains. it would have made sense being the pilot but the look that mark gave it said that it was lexie. i think we might get more mentions of her and a better feeling goodbye when mer starts to come unraveled, and lets face it, she will. i loved loved loved christina in the tub with owen. even though she ran it was nice to see that she was leaning on him like you shoould your husband and that he was taking care of her like a husband should. i think its really a tossup between christina and arizona who has the most to deal with/biggest change. christinas been through so much and i cant fathom the thoughts that jump through her mind after all these seasons of bad things back to back. but arizona loosing her leg, her wife not able to keep her promise. thats a lot to deal with also. shes gonna have to learn how to rewalk and everything now and is going to deal with those physical complications for the rest of her life. i feel neither of them have an easy road back to who they are, if either of them ever reaches that point again is to be seen. all in all i thought it was a good episode.

1. Cristina's talking about the 4 days in the woods (creepy though !) and Arizona begging Callie to save her leg. 2. I would say Arizona (even if easy) but I don't agree with what was said about Cristina being the tough one, she lost it after the shooting, more than the others. Same here. She is deeply traumatized (which I understand !) 3. Pretty happy about what happened. There is nothing to understand about Mark, he was in a real bad shape, he was getting worse except for "the surge", which is pretty common, happened to both my grandmothers. 4. Cristina will come back when she's ready, I'm sure either Meredith or Owen will play a role in her coming back. 5. I'm sad for Lexie, she deserved better. The writing was really bad when she died, and nothing was mentioned afterwards except real creepy comments (animals in the woods). I think the covered body was hers though (the remains at least). I hope we'll talk about Lexie in future episodes, maybe when Meredith stops denying her sister's death.
