Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Hard Bargain"

by at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Hard Bargain" in great detail. Now, TVF's Sean McKenna, Christina Tran and Steve Marsi 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 liked learning that Ross was responsible for defacing McDreamy's lovely wall decor... and especially that he put him up to it.

Sean: I gotta say the whole defacing was hilarious. That and Derek really getting some conflict in his story line. It's nice to see he's getting more to do these days.

Steve: Clean sweep for the defacing of Derek's face. From the moment he first laid eyes on himself in that way, he was hilariously uncomfortable, and the whole thing just got funnier from there.

2. Did the survivors make the right decision to quit in hopes of buying the hospital?

Christina: Let's hope so! I'm not really sure how else things could have played out. The lawsuit storyline has been dragged out to the extreme.

Sean: I still think the storyline itself has become a little silly, but I do hope that it works in a way that sort of brings everything back to the way it used to be. I guess we'll find out what really changes from their actions.

Steve: Yes. Make it happen, gang. Close the deal and bring back the SG of old.

3. How will Owen and Cristina's relationship change because of the ruined Pegasus deal?

Christina: Ah, Owenstina... they never seem to catch a break. I'm expecting to see them come to a real breaking point. Owen must feel so beat up, but he's got to come around, right?!

Sean: I want these two to survive and come out on top together, but for whatever reason, just when things get good, something bad happens. Does that mean the writers don't want them together? I've got a feeling that it's going to be an uphill battle because Owen will be feeling alone and betrayed after what happened.

Steve: Maybe despite all the setbacks these two have been dealt this will serve as an unexpected turning point for the better? Am I just delusional choosing to hold out hope for that?

4. Is April and Matt's relationship doomed to fail because she didn't tell the whole truth?

Christina: Unfortunately, yes. I actually was hoping she'd 'fess up. Big mistake, April.

Sean: I think these two could work it out, but hiding that one small fact is going to blow up in a huge way. April ruins her own relationships, and this one will be no different. Now it's just a matter of when and how.

Steve: Looks like a classic case of Kepner being Kepner here, sabotaging what could have been a very good thing with an utterly preventable action. One wonders if subconsciously she does this on purpose.

5. Should Jo and Alex remain friends or be something more?

Christina: Something more! Not yet, though. I still think they should remain as friends for just a big longer. It's fun watching them as friends for now.

Sean: If the show does want to eventually bring them together, I'd rather see them as friends a bit longer. There's never a need to rush things and sometimes watching the chase can be far more exciting than when they do actually get together. Let's see where this one goes.

Steve: Sometimes the anticipation is the best part. Maybe someday the evolution of their relationship will dictate that they get together for real, but for now, let's just enjoy the ride - and speculating about it. Isn't that the most fun stage of any TV relationship?

1. The Ross-Derek & Weber scene was quite funny followed by Mer and Derek's reaction to seeing the elevator poster. 2. There is no right decision here, they had to do it to stop Pegasus from buying the hospital. Owen will feel betrayed, Cahill will be pissed and the other board members will also be pissed about what they are doing. 3. Owen is going to feel betrayed. I guess this is what Shonda meant when she said the road for them won't be easy. He will just need time to get passed it. Mer irritated me because of her cavelier attitude towards Owen and Christina. She could care less about him. 4. Don't know or Care. Justin Breuning is an ok actor but seriously hate April. 5. They will end up together. Jo is a good girl. Their road also won't be easy but they are kindred spirits and those usually gravitate towards each other.

Part III - 5 - chemistry between them. Now if the show brought back Dr. Lucy Fields, now we're talking sparks!! Again, that's my opinion. Sorry for the multiple posts - wish we had more room in which to say what we wanted to in one post. Sorry.

Part II - 3 - help him as she saw what the guilt was doing to him. Owen does not realize just why they all came to the conclusion to buy the hospital yet. I just hope Shonda & Co. write great dialogue & scenes to wrap up this extension storyline to the plane crash, to show Owen just how much, in the end, all of them did have his back & that Cristina loves her man & was willing to go that far to prove to him that she did. As far as Owen & Cristina's relationship - well, it took another major hit but somehow I think they will manage to dig deeper within themselves to find common ground - they have done it in the past with the ugliness of the abortion/cheating issues. 4 - April manages to sabotage her own relationships - she needs to examine why - I really like her & am in her corner to find out within herself why she does what she does. The hunky paramedic won't be sticking around. 5 - In my opinion, Alex & Jo should remain friends, period. I see zero chemistry between them. Now if the show brought back Dr. Lucy Fields, now we're talking sparks!! Again, that's my opinion.

1 - Favorite scene; flashing van lights & what ensued w/Derek's financial advisor in the van. The camera kept swinging around from face to face & by the end of the discussions I had whiplash!! Hilarious! Second favorite scene; Owen & Cristina's sexy bed scene - it was so hot that I could see steam coming out from my tv!!! They have had some of THE steamiest sex scenes on this show. Thanks Shonda!!! 2 - Throughout the show we saw why, in the end, the doctor's made the decision to buy the hospital & they are all right in their decision. 3 - Owen feels totally betrayed by all the doctor's but to hear Cristina quitting on him was the tipping point & it is understandable. After he told her a couple of episodes back that she had quit their marriage a long time ago - this, to him, was reliving that pain all over again. But we all know that after he admitted to her that he did not feel the sale of SGMW was the best thing to do, she knew what she had to do to help him as she saw what the guilt was doing to him. Owen does not realize just why they all came to the conclusion to buy the hospital yet. I just hope Shonda & Co. write great dialogue & scenes to wrap up this extension storyline to the plane crash, to show Owen just how much, in the end, all of them did have his back & that Cristina loves her man & was willing to go that far to prove to him that she did. As far as Owen & Cristina's relationship - well, it took another major hit but somehow I think they will manage to dig deeper within themselves to find common ground - they have done it in the past with the ugliness of the abortion/cheating issues. 4 - April manages to sabotage her own relationships - she needs to examine why - I really like her & am in her corner to find out within herself why she does what she does. I would think, however, hunky paramedic Matt will not be long for this relationship because of her withholding what she did. She did not start a solid foundation. 5 - In my opinion, Alex & Jo should remain friends, period. I see zero chemistry between them. Now if the show brought back Dr. Lucy Fields, now we're talking sparks!! Again, that's my opinion.
