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.

I am more sad about Lexie than Sloan. Chyler could act unlike Dane.

I hate how their doing My Girl Lexie memory. She was one of the best at Seattle Grace next Bailey. SHE DID EXIST SO GIVE HER 2 HOURS LIKE GEORGE AND MARK PLEASE

1. Best scene was Bailey's Lost reference. Still LOL.
2. Biggest changes are for Cristina. She's surrounded by happy people. Like that would ever happen at SGH.
3. Grey's has plot holes? When did that happen? Either way, I'm already sick of the plane crash. Can we move on?
4. Cristina will be back just in time for the next Tragedy(!!!!).
5. What's the mystery? Mark did shirtless scenes, Lexi didn't. It's not like Shonda cares about anything else.

Loved Jcap. She has a tough storyline on her shoulders and I can't wait to see it unfold. Everyone is talking about Sandra Oh, who was amazing. I actually gasped when she talked about the animals. But Jcap's Arizona, who is always cheerful and perky, suddenly changed a few facial expressions and she just looks empty now. Brilliant acting.

Great episode

As much as I hate Cristina. I have to say the scene when she was in the tub and told Owen about Lexie was the highlight of episode.

Give Lexie a proper sendoff please..come on after all she was a GREY

All we the fans got was....nothing. Didn't show us alot of anything. Would have liked to seen the hospital reaction to the plane crash and the days of waiting. And some of them in the woods would have been helpful. Showing certain parts just didn't work. And it's like Lexie....was never apart of the show. All in all I was very disappointed.

I am finishing my original post:
There is no doubt that Cristina is a great dr/surgeon. She needs to feel the human side of herself when nothing more can be done for someone. That's life rearing its ugly head.
#5-I think Grey's could have done a better job regarding Lexie's death - but it was Mark's dying that was the biggest situation on last weeks show. My question is - WHAT happened to Jerry, the pilot? No mention of him.
@April, I am seeing your post - maybe it was Jerry in the body bag & we should have assumed (which I never really do) that Lexie was eaten by the animals - while totally gross, unfortunately that is the food chain in the real world ... sad as it is.

#1-agree w/staff members re: bathtub scene. Sandra Oh totally nailed it & Owen spoke to her so soothingly & took care of her & was fully engaged with her when she divulged what happened those 4 days.
#2-agree again. Cristina - she only knows "fixing." Until she met Owen Hunt, she didn't know the "feeling" - because of their love she now does. She doesn't know what to do with those feelings so she "runs."
#3-I would have liked to have seen more Owen/Cristina time with him helping her get on her feet - the writers just continue to "gloss" over stuff they try to jam & cram too much "stuff" into one episode & they shouldn't do that. A lot of episodes don't feel complete & they have 22 shows to film.
#4-Cristina will be back - actually I would like to see her be released from the program at Mayo - she will, at some point, have to deal with all the bad things happening to her - it's like Meredith told her "it's life" all Cristina "sees" is fixing. She IS a great dr/surgeon - she needs to feel the human side of herself.
#5-I think Grey's could have done a better job regarding Lexie's death - but it was Mark's dying that was the biggest issue on last weeks show. My question is - WHAT happened to Jerry, the pilot? No mention of him. Talk about "glossing over" .....
