Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "She's Killing Me"

at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "She's Killing Me" in great detail. Now, TVF's Christina Tran, Sean McKenna and Steve Marsi 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 this week’s episode?

Christina: Cristina: “Mer, you had me at lethal injection.” Sometimes only a BFF really gets you.

Sean: I thought it was funny when Cristina said to Meredith that she'd rather be the cool Aunt for two weeks out of the year, so she can teach the kid all about sex. She always manages to say something funny. Talk about a cool Aunt for sure.

Steve: Not to copy you guys but anything with Cristina and Meredith (see clips below). Their friendship feels so real and some of the lines are genuinely funny. Year in and year out, Sandra Oh is a treasure. Also, I loved how our favorite surgeons all interacted with the Syrian doctors at some point and how that was woven into the episode's arc.

2. On a scale of 1-5, how shocked were you that Bailey was actually the one who might be responsible for the outbreak of the post-op infections?

Christina: 5. I think I was way too excited of the likelihood that Leah was going to get fired so I didn’t assume any other possibilities.

Sean: I guess 4. I was surprised, but I had a feeling there was a twist coming. 

Steve: 6. I, too, felt that a twist was coming, but didn't expect that one.

3. Every attending had an opportunity to teach the Syrian doctors a new lesson. Who do you think is the best teacher?

Christina: Everyone shines in their own moment, but if I really had to choose, I’d go with Derek. What he said to Ross was spot on and he just kicks ass in neuro and as a mentor to the interns.

Sean: Cristina because Cristina just rocks in general. She's the boss at cardio.

Steve: She has her flaws but I just love Arizona's style. If I had to learn from someone, she has the brightest attitude - even in spite of her personal tribulations - and the skills of course.

4. Owen’s showing more and more that he still is itching to be a parent while Cristina is simply showing just the opposite. What happens next for Owenstina?

Christina: I don’t think Cristina’s going to change her mind ever. So, these two need to come to terms about their relationship and accept that they ultimately do not want the same things.

Sean: As much as they continue to want different things, the show has done a pretty good job at showing their love endures. I have no idea what direction they are going to take, but something tells me these two aren't won't be easily separated.

Steve: Normally you might think this plot line is being dragged out unnecessarily, but it's actually done realistically I think. The issue doesn't have to be a deal-breaker for their relationship, but it doesn't mean a clear resolution is imminent, either. It may never be. I think Cristina should give motherhood a try, though. She'd be a Cool Aunt but I can see her as a Cool Mom, too. Well, once we get out of the infant care stage, which would repulse her.

5. Who’s your favorite intern these days?

Christina: Jo or Ross. I simply don’t care about the others. I hope the stories continue to focus on the core characters and hardly mention the interns.

Sean:  Ross. I could really care less for the other interns and the Friday Night Lights fan in me ultimately makes the choice pretty easy. Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose.

Steve: They've all grown on me, to be honest, but in the interest of this question, I have to go with Jo, if only because my longtime celebrity crush is Kate Middleton.

its CROWEN! :D
can't wait for the next episode.


1. Derek talking about his geneo testing being a bald alcholic. But Cris was LOL so many times.
2.Bailey has always been so self assured.She's vocal in her criticism of others who don't come up to her standards.She gets to see the otherside now.Scalewise 4.
4.Cris has got a huge clue that she's not the number one attraction for Owen anymore.Cris stated clearly she doesn't want to be a mom.So how can Crowen still continue?If not end of S9 by episode 200
5.The anti heros Leah and Mousie


Bailey being the person to blame here is making me think that Chandra Wilson is on her way out of the series, which would make me EXTREMELY sad if that were true. =( They've been setting that up for some time with making her more of a background character/ comedic relief. As for the rest of the episode, it was nice to see Meredith and Christina be the BFFs that they are again in this episode. It felt so organic and reminisicent of the old grey's episodes. Sandra Oh is just fantastic and I love how the writers are helping us see how much the characters have grown. Also a nice moment, Mer and Derek actually acting like a married couple. You can tell that Derek, as much Christina, has become her person too. I love it!


1 - I agree - Cristina telling Mer that she had her at lethal injection - lol
2 - shocked - but maybe Bailey contracted something when on her honeymoon
3 - loved the Syrian doctor storyline - April rocked it again when she
gave them all sorts of very expensive medical equipment - BLESS HER!!!
4 - possibly adopting an older child would be better for Cristina should she
& Owen decide to go that route - I think she realizes that he wants to
be a Dad & she realizes that Owen would be the more dominant parent
until SHE falls in love with the child - something tells me she would.
5 - "Mousy" has always been my favorite new intern


1) you had me at lethal injection. Christina is awesome and i love their friendship. its alot like my friendship with my bff. 2) a 5, i was so hoping to get rid of leah. i really really hope we dont loose bailey. 3) i really liked them all but i think christina actually shined as a teacher this time. she was calm patient helpful and fully enjoyed herself. 4) i dont think the kids will be a definate dealbreaker. maybe if the boys parents pass they can adopt him, or owen can adopt him. i think the infant stage is maybe what bothers christina the most. maybe an already fully functional child would be okay. 5) ross and heather. i dont care for leah at all, stephanies..meh and jos okay i suppose even though i think a more mature person would be better for alex, as long as its not izzie. but ross and heather crack me up. nobody liked lexie when she first got there, and people are still warming up to april so maybe in a year or two when they kill heather shell have a fan base that morns her.


I'm going to assume that the detective coming to Sloan-Grey Memorial Hospital is there for Bailey. Perhaps she'll be charged with some sort of malpractice suit and murder/manslaughter?
Shonda did tweet that the finale is going to be crazy (again) this year...
