Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Everybody's Crying Mercy"

by at .

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down the latest episode of the long-running show in great detail. Now, TVF's Courtney Morrison, Christina Tran and Steve Marsi are back for a Q&A discussion.

Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!

----------------------------------------

1. What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?

Christina: I have to go with every word that came out of Cristina’s mouth. She’s come a long way and I loved when she was torturing Alex about his sex life. I seriously LOL’ed when she said: “Does she ever sleep with you? Did you guys have sex and it was awful? Was she awful? Were you awful and now you're so ashamed you can't even look at her? Was it weird? Is she a man? Oh, secret penis?!”

Courtney: I loved the scenes between Alex and Cristina. Especially when she asked if he would braid her hair after surgery!

Steve: Hands down agreed with Christina and her Grey's namesake. That rapid-fire interrogation was so awesome. I also liked seeing Derek and Meredith with the newborn. I can vouch for the fact that even the most attentive dads have it easier than the moms when it comes to power napping.

2. Weigh in on what Richard said to Meredith about her making the wrong choice and how he chose the wrong person.

Christina: Like I mentioned in my review, it was cold and harsh. Poor Meredith! Oddly though, I get it. Life has thrown Richard some terrible curveballs lately. It’s no wonder he’s breaking down and feeling so angry. However, does it give him a right to say what he said to Meredith? Absolutely not!

Courtney: I get what Richard was saying. He's just been through a trauma, he's battered and beat down. He can't even eat. He's angry. He may have said those things, but he doesn't mean them. Meredith is like his daughter and always will be.

Steve: That seemed a bit out of character for Richard. Not that I don't understand why he said that or the impact of what he's been through, but his history with Meredith and the fact that she obviously did what she thought was right in an impossibly difficult situation should trump all that - at least I would think.

3. Who’s your favorite intern right now?

Christina: We haven’t seen very much of her in the OR this season yet, but I really like Jo. Now that Jolex has sealed the deal, it’s time for her to step it up at the hospital.

Courtney: Jo. No questions asked.

Steve: Jo, and not just because I crush on her. She always has some great scenes lately.

4. Which do you care more about: April passing her boards or seeing Shane make a difference after what happened last week?

Christina: If I had to choose, I’ll go with the latter. I still think that what happened with Heather needs to come to surface though and can’t imagine that he’s guilt-free already.

Courtney: I want both to do well. I like Shane a lot but April has really grown on me over the past few seasons.

Steve: On the basis of this one episode, Shane. But like Courtney I find April growing on me. Even when I find her annoying it's that realistic, half-endearing kind of annoying. Hard not to root for her.

5. We know that Cristina is out after this season. If the other originals follow suit, which character would you miss the most?

Christina: Easy. Meredith! She is the show.

Courtney: Meredith, of course. Her and Derek are a package deal. If either left, it would ruin things for me.

Steve: Any of the originals would be missed. Meredith feels like the most integral, since it was kind of "her" show from the onset, but Alex, Derek, and even Calzona have become so vital.

    All the interactions between Christina and Owen in this episode were so great - many cringeworthy in their awkwardness, but so realistic and not over-acted. I especially loved the exchange they had in the elevator.

    Also I thought there were some really cool music choices in this episode. Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools" was a really weird choice to play while that woman died on the table, but it was jarring and heightened that scene. Also loved when "Because of You" By C2C and Pigeon John played when Callie helps Meredith and Derek take care of their three crying kids.

    I think you could pretty much safely say that the vast majority of the fan base would be gone should MerDer leave! I know I will!

    I think Webber is just pissed at his predicament and he's just taking it out on Mer because, who else would he be able to do that to?

    4. Seeing April passing her boards this year just reminds me that Lexie should have been taking her boards as well this year. She never really got to show off her super power photographic memory )-:

    So did anyone mind the MASSIVE Webber contradiction? To me, it pretty much took away any meaning the last episode/episodes had. After he was saved saying that he made the right call? Really?

    Fave quote for me came from Callie: "You wore the red dress and everything". So heartbreaking. In spite of he fact that Callie was pissed and couldnt bare to look at Arizona, she still managed to notice her wife's haircut and that she went out of her way to please her. Callie still loves her.

    I'd miss Calzona the most. They are the main reason I'm still invested in this show. However, Christina will be missed along with her snark and sarcasm.

    1. Derek's quote already mentioned
    2.It is the doctors job to do everything possible to do the best for their patients. Webber never told Mer what he wanted,so she's doing her best.Cris mentioned many seasons ago about post op depression, I think Webber is depressed.Webber's gonna be at odds with Mer and Bailey this S10
    3.It was Mousey
    5.Meredith and Derek and family

    cont.

    5. The show would end for me with the exit of Meredith and Derek. If it can go on without Cristina and still be enjoyable remains to be seen.

    1. Fav quote would be Derek´s half-sleepy, "He´s hungry and my nipples are no use to him." Fav scene: Cristina and Alex with the high-speed interrogation.

    2. Richard was totally out of line. Next time he chooses somebody else as his medical care proxy, he should try discussing his needs with them first and not simply write a name down without leaving hints on which condition/s he would consider unacceptable to live with. He better apologizes rather sooner than later for even putting her in that situation in the first place without asking her consent to be a proxy first.

    3. I loved Heather/Mousy and was sad to see her go that way. Shane is a close second. I agree that his part in Mousy´s demise should be addressed though. But looking forward to more from him. Still on the fence about Jo. There was potential for an interesting SL but that seems to have been dropped when the Jason actor left.

    4. See above re Shane. April really annoys me but luckily she chilled a little.

    5. The show would end for me with the exit of Meredith and Derek.

    My favourite intern is Heather. Oh wait, she's gone. Sigh. There's just something overly sassy about Jo it becomes grating. But I did hate Meredith when the show started so... "nobody knows where we might end up... nobody knows..."
