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.
