Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Bad Blood"
Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Last week's Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Bad Blood" in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic's Sean McKenna, Christina Tran and Courtney Morrison are back for a Q&A discussion of many of the episode's events.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite quote or scene from the episode?
Christina: I loved Bailey's teacher pet side in the hernia competition. I especially liked when she threw out the Hunger Games reference. Awesome!
Courtney: I loved Meredith panicking because she felt a flutter in her stomach. I am so excited for her to go through labor... I’m guessing it is going to be hilarious.
Sean: Bailey getting on the elevator wearing that sweatshirt from the competition. Hilarious. I definitely agree with Christina. "May the odds be ever in your favor."
2. Derek and April attempt to save the hospital with budget cuts. These two pairing up - funny or never again?
Christina: Never again. I simply can't say that I care for April. So, it's hard to watch any scene when she's involved.
Courtney: April has grown on me this season so I thought she was cute when she admitted no one liked her. These two worked well on this project together.
Sean: Pass. It seemed like a weird match up to simply see if their screen time would work out. I really want to like April but I feel as if the writers want her to be so off the wall with whatever they feel like throwing at her, it's hard to get into her character. There are small moments that work sure, but a good portion of the time the character just gets on my nerves.
3. What was your favorite medical case of the week?
Christina: Leah and Cristina's. I was definitely glued to my seat because I thought Leah was waiting for Leah to pull an Izzie. I even forgot about Bob watching.
Courtney: Favorite case has to be the young girl with the hip problems. I felt so bad for her and couldn’t help but laugh at Callie, Arizona, and Alex attempting to work with her.
Sean: I'm gonna go with Arizona, Callie, and Alex helping out the girl. But that scene where Arizona told her to cut the crap and get out of bed was great. I can only imagine trying to overcome something like that.
4. There wasn’t much of a focus on relationships in this episode. Did you miss it or do you prefer the medical based hours?
Christina: I actually prefer when there's a mix of both relationships and medical cases. This is something Private Practice did so well. RIP!
Courtney: I missed it! Although, we did have a small Mer/Der moment at the end that made up for it!
Sean: It was a little odd because this show is so heavily focused on relationships. I liked the shift, but I do think that the relationships intermixed with the cases are what make this show work. It should be more of a middle ground.
5. Leah attempted to give a patient blood who couldn’t have it due to his religion. Do we have a new Izzie on our hands? Is she going to be the intern who won’t make it?
Christina: Well, it sure does seem that way, doesn't it? I don't know if she'll stick around, but she was finally interesting for once. I'm still rooting for Ross and Jo though.
Courtney: Like Christina said, she finally made her mark. I couldn’t remember her name going into this episode. I wouldn’t mind if she didn’t come back next year...as long as Ross does I’m good!
Sean: I do wonder which intern won't make it. It's been hard for me to even remember their names besides Jo and Ross, but I'm glad she had something more to do than talk about sleeping with doctors or stand around. Guess we'll find out soon who makes the cut!
