Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Run, Baby, Run"

at . Comments

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

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

Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!


1. Are Alex and Jo meant for each other, meant to be friends, or never meant to be?

Christina: The writers are definitely setting it up for Alex and Jo to get together. Otherwise, how else would you explain why she gets so much screen time compared to the other interns?

Courtney: I agree with Christina, that it is all in the writing. I'm hoping they do get together and Alex has a chance at a real relationship. He deserves that after all these seasons. Plus, Jo is the least annoying of all the interns.

Sean: The writers are definitely setting it up, but I'm not really a fan of going that direction. Can't they find someone else for him, who hasn't been running behind his back to tell on him? And I don't mean one of the other interns. I just don't want to feel like their relationship is being forced together.

2. Are you glad Cristina and Owen are giving it another shot?

Christina: No, not really. I once liked Owenstina, but they still have major underlying issues. If they are going to try again, they need to get down to the root cause of their problems. Owen cheated. Technically, Cristina did, too. Cristina left! Owen wants to a baby; Cristina doesn't... the list goes on.

Courtney: I enjoy these two together and they really do have great chemistry...but there are so many problems! On top of the baby/cheating issues...he is now her boss that signed off on the plane that she was on and this lawsuit resulted from. It's just another layer of complicated.

Sean: Well, yes and no. These two have great chemistry together, but they can't simply ignore all the other problems they've had. They'd really have to be on a new path and willing to change in order for it to all work out. I'd like it to, but I'm afraid their past arguments will resurface and tear them apart again.

3. Will Adele survive?

Christina: I hope so because so many people have died recently. How much more pain can our SGMW-ers handle?

Courtney: I'm predicting... no. I love the character of Adele and she has been a highlight of so many episodes. But Richard has moved on with Catherine and let's not forget Adele's "friend" at her home.  But I can be sure of one thing, Loretta Divine is going to put on an epic performance whenever her last episode is.

Sean: It'd be nice if she did survive, but I'm going to say no. In a lot of ways, Richard has already moved on. Not that he doesn't still love her, but he's already hooked up with Jackson's mom and been okay with it. It might be time for him to fully move on, unfortunately it might be this tragic moment for him.

4. Will Ben understand Miranda's reasons for ditching the wedding or will it be over for them?

Christina: Tough one, especially for Ben. He seems like a very patient man, but I can't help but wonder if Miranda could have just taken a few seconds to send a text or call him or anyone at the wedding party. Surely, the driver would have even had his phone on him if Bailey and Webber didn't. I know time was pressing, but still! I hope Ben hears her out and forgives her.

Courtney: He will understand, he is a doctor. He's definitely going to be pissed but it's Webber's wife. He has been everything to Bailey and she needs to be there for him.

Sean: I hope Ben understands, because I really feel like the circumstances weren't about running away but saving a life. I know Ben had the mini congo about Miranda's cold feet and I can see him having a talk about her not wanting to do it, so they should just not. That said, whether she would or would not have run wash't the case. She was simply helping try and save a friend, and I hope Ben will realize that.

5. Anything you want to see happen when the show comes back in 2013?

Christina: I mainly want to see a resolution for the lawsuit (kind of getting old) and of course a healthy baby for MerDer.

Courtney: Meredith and Derek having a baby! I can't even process the thought of these two having a miscarriage.

Sean: I'd really like to see the interns develop more. As characters there's so much to explore, but I feel like they've been limited to either freaking out when a doctor yells at them or just fodder for comic relief. And I'd love to see Derek get back into the doctor game. Hopefully, there aren't any complications and he can return as one of the top surgeons.

For myself, the BEST scenes of the Run Baby Run episode are of Owen & Cristina - first the show-down in the scrub room that ended up very tenderly & then Cristina going back for her husband & telling him directly to him that she wanted to try again - I think she got her answer when he walked over to her & gave her that major lip-lock. I am hoping that the writers make them SIT & have great dialogue to each other just like they did in the scrub room & the room Owen was in getting dressed in. They BOTH have much to atone for in this relationship & I am HOPING that Shonda & the writers give these two characters the respect they deserve to put humpty dumpty back together better than it was to begin with. I truly hope to see Cristina treat her husband LIKE a husband - I think with alot of TLC & alot of understanding & forgiving to each other they can work things out - only they can't backpedal .... Loved Callie in all the scenes she was in - first singing to Bailey - that was hilarious - then she did tough love to Arizona with the shoe issue & then performing surgery on Derek. If Ben does not understand why Miranda did not get to the Church on time, he should not be a doctor - he'll be fine - I predict they won't marry in the Church but will take off for a whole different destination - maybe Vegas, baby!! But the wedding decorations sure were beautiful.


Why in not the review and now this you have ignored once again the other major storyline ( Arizona and callie). My thoughts are get rid of the interns and focus on the real cast. Or If they are going to keep the interns make their roles smaller so the the real cast doesn't get ignored. Guest stats are supposed to enhance the storyline (ala neve Campbell) not take over and get an episode dedicated to them.


@BrowncoatWhit - Oh, trust me, I haven't forgotton about Cristina's abortion. Hence, the "the list goes on..." I was merely listing Owenstina's most recent issues. I definitely agree with you on the statement about wanting to see Cristina grow and own up to her mistakes.


whoops -- my apologies for the pronoun error. That should read "Cristina's absolute refusal to give HER husband the chance to be an equal partner..."


A question for Christina, please: I've seen you refer to Owen before as a cheater, but I've never seen you refer to Cristina's having aborted his child -- and refusing to even **discuss** the matter with him about it. To me, that's a more glaring crime -- while I am pro-choice, I find Cristina's absolute refusal to give his husband the chance to be an equal partner in the decision to be a far, far worse crime than a drunken one-night-stand (which he has since been honest about). I think the underlying problem with C/O as a couple is not the disagreement about children, but rather, Cristina's refusal to treat her husband as an equal partner. I'm hoping that we'll see Cristina's growth as a character in the second half of the season, with her owning up to her mistakes and beginning to treat Owen as her true partner.


Tell Christina about thr baby. Richard and Catherine engaged? Interns step up to higher levels as doctors


I told Shonda on Twitter that we fans want them to keep them to keep their McBaby and I asked if Owen will find out about Parker.


efing tell christina already,mer.
