Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Idle Hands"

at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Idle Hands" in great detail. Now, TVF's Christina Tran, Sean McKenna and Courtney Morrison are back for a Q&A discussion 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?

Sean: Alex pulling pranks on Jo's boyfriend. Hilarious. Plus, the final scene between Alex and Jo's BF means we're hopefully gonna get some great confrontation between them.

Courtney: I loved Meredith and Derek when they were finding out the sex of the baby! Too cute. I'm so happy for a McBaby Boy.

Christina: Meredith: "If anyone's going to have a baby with two heads, three arms, and eleven toes, it's me." OMG, that's so me!

2. Are you excited for the new name of the hospital or has it already changed enough times?

Sean: I understand what they are doing with the name, but it really does change anything for me. They could have named it Drama Hook-up Hospital if they wanted to.

Courtney: It's great that it is going to be called Grey-Sloan since those two characters don't get mentioned too much anymore.

Christina: I'm with Sean on this one. I appreciate the change and reasoning, but it makes no difference to me anymore.

3. We know that Alex likes Jo, now her boyfriend does. How soon until Alex makes a move?

Sean: Soon for sure. He's really interested in her for a relationship and he's definitely willing to fight for something he wants. It'll be interesting to see how the love triangle works.

Courtney: He is going to make it ASAP. After the tricks he pulled this week, it's only a matter of time.

Christina: Pronto! I've been on the Jalex or train for awhile now. Let's go!

4. Derek and Meredith are having a boy!! Are you pumped or do you wish they were having another girl?

Sean: It's not really a big deal for me. I think either way, they are going to be great parents (although it's been a while since I've seen Zola.)

Courtney: Sean is right... where is Zola? But I'm very happy to have a little McDreamy running around.

Christina: No preference here, but I do predict they'll have a mini McDreamy.

5. Best couple of the night - Mer/Der or Arizona/Callie?

Sean: Mer/Der all the way. As much as any couple can be great, I still think those two are the staple relationship of the show.

Courtney: Callie and Arizona had some amazing scenes, but it always boils down to Mer/Der.

Christina: 3 for 3... Mer/Der always wins best couple in my book.

What do you all think of this week's Grey's Anatomy? Share your responses below!


1.Calzona X-Ray Room Scene. Callie should win wife-of-the-year awards. Love when she said "with your girlie hands, forget it" So adorable.
2. I think its smart to have Grey's Anatomy's hospital named Grey.
3.Not really sure, Alex hesitates.
4.Everybody was having girls, guess it was time for a boy.
5. Calzona!The way Callie took Arizona under her wing and made her feel comfortable was in my top 3 favorite Grey's Anatomy moments.


I have read so many complaints regarding the entire plane crash storyline by posters on this & other sites. Personally, I have found all of the individual stoylines because of the crash quite compelling. Owen & Cristina & Callie & Arizona have been the best of the lot with what has happened to them as a result of the crash. For a husband to have to divorce his wife to make sure she receives a good settlement & for the husband to feel so guilty because he signed off on the chartered flight is sad. And with one wife losing her leg because the other wife instructed another doctor to remove it, surely is tragic. However, both couples seem to have survived it & hopefully they will continue to do so. While I understand why the hospital was renamed, I still really liked it when it was called Seattle Grace.


Callie and arizona all the way, love how they have portrayed them the whole way through the series and this episode was a lovely resolution (tho meridith cracked me up!)
Found the alex storyline ridiculous and childish, im actually hopin jo stays with her BF(fat chance) because her and alex just seems too contrived and cant help feel we have seen it all before! Was hoping they would do something
Different with Alex but he fast becoming my least favourite character and the only bad thing in this otherwise brilliant show!!


Scene: Arizona/Callie in x-ray room, and actually all their scenes, with the progression, and then the regression, and then ultimately moving forward. Hospital: Wish it was still "Seattle Grace." (Saying "Grey-Sloan" fast sounds almost like "Grace-land.") Alex/Jo: Any time now will be good. Baby: Little Shepherd boy is fantastic! Couple of the night: Arizona & Callie, good screen time, also. (I do love Mer/Der couple as well.)


1. Best scene: Mer, Alex and Cristina talking about the baby. LOL. Love them together.
2. Don't care what they call the hospital, as long as they end this stupid plane crash/take over story. So, so boring and dragged out.
3. The sooner Alex gets an actual story the better.
4. Don't care.
5. Mer/Der by a mile.


1) Calzona x-ray room scene was beautiful.
2) Hospital names is nice but it's not like it makes a difference.
3) Alex probably won't make a move until the finale b/c that's Shonda's style.
4) I'm excited for a boy, not that girl's aren't great, but a boy was due since we only have Tuck. Not like we'll see them that much anyways.
5) Callie and Arizona. To see their journey come full circle was brilliant. I really commend Shonda for taking her time with them this season. Feels so much more real.


1.Mer's pessimisum was so funny. The babywhisperer Der talking about his first flyfishing adventure to settle McBaby :) Loved how awkard Cris was when she tried to babywhisper.
2.GSH a reminder of a sad past. Just a rearrangement of SGH.
3.This will probably resolved in the finale.
4.Missing Zola,but I get the complexities of using child actors.I guessed it'd be a boy. Just imagine the expectations if McBoy chooses to be a surgeon with his family genes.
5.Oh MerDer from S1, episode 1 and continues to be :)


"If anything is wrong with your baby I'll fix it"
The name change for me doesn't matter.
I thought how Alex and webber were acting was just cringe worthy. After all they are grown professional men.
Doesn't matter the sex, we won't see them much anyway.
Hands down Callie and Arizona. The journey this couple has been on the whole season was painful at times, but in the end to finally see them come totally back to one another was just beautiful done. What a beautiful love story.
