Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "I Bet It Stung"

by at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down the latest episode in great detail. Now, TVF's Christina Tran and Steve Marsi, along with Lisa and Liv from GreysGabble.com, 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: Easy. I’m going with Bailey’s “Your son is the devil's spawn. He drinks the milk of a liver thief.”

Lisa and Liv: Take a bow, Justin Chambers! Our favorite scene was with Alex Karev and absent father in the elevator. Wow, Karev showed his growth, his pain and he not knowing what to do – I was so impressed with this scene.

Steve: I loved Callie's scene with her patient’s sister, followed by the dance party. How can you not?

2. What did you think about Cristina and Meredith’s fight?

Christina: Talk about tension! Cristina was right, but wrong to compare Mer to Bailey and Callie. It was clear that every word really hurt Mer, and I am ready to find out what Mer’s next move is.

Lisa and Liv: This fight was unexpected. You could see Cristina proud of Mer. Yet, you can also see that Mer isn’t at the top of her game. We see Cristina’s side, and we also get Mer seeing it as a mom. It’s a matter of safety. Yet, seeing Cristina back in action makes me sad all the same. It has been a long time since we have seen hard ass Cristina. However, this is about Meredith – can she juggle it all? Did she come to terms that she can’t have it all? Is it the same with Cristina choosing surgery over being married and having kids? It’s all about choice. Will they be able to live with choices already made?

Steve: Intense! But inevitable if you consider what had been brewing just beneath the surface for some time now. This isn't new. The choices we make in live often drive a wedge between even the closest relationships, especially if the parties involved are as close and as strong-willed as these two successful surgeons.

3. Owen’s moving on with Emma. Callie kicked Arizona out. Are Crowen and Calzona really over?

Christina: I’m actually surprised that both couples are on a real break. If I had to pick one way or the other, I’d say Crowen isn’t finished and Calzona is.

Lisa and Liv: No, in our opinion, Calzona is not over. We think that this is painful to watch but very real. We are rooting for their grace and healing through this process; betrayal is never easy. Arizona is finding herself – with that new ‘do, seeing the Arizona that made me invested!!! Callie - well, wow! Dancing in those pink lacy panties – you go girls, you make being separated look pretty good, but at the end of the day, this is a tough scenario to watch. Stay strong, Calzona!!

Steve: Definitely not. This show will go on forever so there's always hope! That said, I'm surprised in that it looks like the break is legitimate in both cases. It won't be a quick rebound for either, nor is there a guarantee that they will get back together. The writers may not even know. But it's not a done deal.

4. Predict what happens next with Alex’s storyline involving his dad.

Christina: Alex’s storyline is far from over. It just has to be. We know so little about his past. I predict that his dad will end up in the hospital once again and only after Alex’s been checking him out. He looked curious and hurt at the same time, and I’m just glad he has Jo to help him deal with everything. P.S. I love Jolex!

Lisa and Liv: Shonda mentioned Karev’s growth last season, and now is his time to shine. This also will involve forgiveness. We also think Alex’s facial expressions during the elevator scene showed there is a fine line between love and hate. Do we think that Alex is at Hallmark buying his dad a Father’s Day card? No, but we believe that Alex will heal and get some closure and we will also understand the hurt and pain Alex has come from.

Steve: Justin Chambers will continue to shine as the unheralded but steadfast rock of the Grey's Anatomy cast. After watching him in this storyline so far, and throughout the past few years, that much I'm confident in no matter where the show takes the situation with his father.

5. April was nearly MIA. Did you notice?

Christina: I noticed and am actually glad she was sort of MIA. With a huge cast, it’s understandable not everyone is involved constantly. In my opinion, less April is better.

Lisa and Liv: We love April Kepner, and so we did notice her in the OR and we think she was adorable in the scenes she was in. April is taking charge this season. We cannot wait to see her storyline with Jackson and Matt come to a head and also as a voice at Grey Sloan Memorial. We prefer seeing April in more scenes than Leah.

Steve: Not really, but that's more because of the storylines that took place than because Kepner doesn't bring anything to the table. She does, but sometimes everyone has to take a back seat.

boring episode

I just want to say that Cristina was wrong in comparing Meredith with Cali and Bailey. Bailey might not have let up but it ended her her marriage; Cali had two other adults, Arizona and Mark, to help her out with Sofia. Cristina was totally wrong in saying that to Meredith especially in front of Bailey. Meredith is her mother's daughter and she would have done well in the surgery.

*** 1. What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode? The routine at the Shepherds. The MerDer scene at the end. Intense! 2. What did you think about Cristina and Meredith’s fight? Cristina was harsh. And I think she's jealous cause surgery is all she got, plus Owen is moving on and used Meredith as a punching bag. Comparing to Ellis, Bailey and Callie was low blow. Hope she gets off her high horse, and we'll see Meredith shine and be good at BOTH. 3. Owen’s moving on with Emma. Callie kicked Arizona out. Are Crowen and Calzona really over? Crowen yes of course with Sandra leaving why waste screentime on them? Calzona not over I guess which sucks. I like Callie so much better away from Arizona. Can't stand her. Also hope she keeps being in the background. 4. Predict what happens next with Alex’s storyline involving his dad. I don't know what's gonna happen, but can't wait to see more! The elevator scene was so good. 5. April was nearly MIA. Did you notice? NO LOL. The less of her the better. She's annoying and doesn't bring anything to the show. IMO

1. Fav scene was April sticking up for Arizona or her discussing "waking up in the bathtub with her spanx still on" lol
2. Never really been a Mer/Christina fan, but I guess they had to put some tension in that relationship, gotta have some drama.
3. Crowen and calzona are MFEO. They might have broken up, but they'll always pine for the other.
4. He'll be back. Love Justin Chambers, love that this is a guy who not only looks good but can also act. Storyline is well deserved and a long time coming.
5. Missed April, I'm glad people noticed. I love her character and how much she has grown. That budding friendship between Arizona and her is something I'm looking forward to, and of course, her continuing story with Jackson. Those two are far from over and can't wait to see how it plays out.

4. I am glad to know more about Alex
5. I didn't miss April. I prefer Jackson with Stephanie.

1. The morning routine at the McDreamy household
2.Cris pointed out something Mer would have quickly realised, that work life balance is hard for a mother of two.But Cris to compare Mer to Bailey who had a exhusband who was the maincare giver cos he worked at home, and Callie who had two others helping with the baby, was OTT. Hope Mer makes Cris eat her words about Mer only being a good surgeon.
3.SO leaving, unless KMK gets written out too, then yes Crowen are done.Owen has a chance of the family life he wants.His reaction to the Mcfamily scene in 10.01 gave that away.Arizona seems to thinnk all she has to do is flutter her eyelashes and Callie will melt.So glad Callie is being so strong this time round after being cheated on.
4.Dad will move into Alex's home and then let Alex down big time
5.Hooray. She's gonna be sidelined until the 'wedding'(I hope)

It was an awesome episode!!! I am loving all the interns/2nd year residents because that was what katherine called Edwards a 2nd year resident. I loved that April was MIA for most of the this episode and for the gala episode as well. I loved the jolex storyline with alex's dad, you can see how much jo really wants alex to make up with his dad and she might want him to be her father figure also because i wanted that too watching the Jo with Alex's dad scenes. I loved the stackson scenes. Jackson/Stephanie and Alex/Jo are the new Meredith/Derek and Christina/Owen. Overall, I bet it stung gets 5 stars from me. I can't wait until the next episode, and I just started watching Grey's from season 8:) I do have a question for Robert and that is, what do all your questions mean on your review?

Spindae-2o

1. Fav scene!
-Honestly the build up to the Mer and Xtina fight was awesome and their fight started moving things along and I´m really curious were Shonda will take us with this story. We never saw the girls in this state.
2.The Fight!
-I mean over all it was obvious Mer is coming back to early but Christina´s approach was completely wrong. She knows how tempted Mer is to be a good Mom and not mess up like her MOm. Her words were really hitting hard and pretty condescending. Mer is an excellent surgeon and Miranda and Callie had issues as well. So Xtina should relax and find some ventil to reduce her stress.
3. Crowen or Calzon? Over or on track?
-Crowen is over but it will still be in the air, around us and it´s okay to settle it through the season, but if they choose to let Owen leave with her I wouldn´t mind to let the ride into the sunset.
-Calzon I believe there is no way their story is over. Even though I´m not a fan of Arizona, not that well developt as a character. I want Callie free and dancing.
4.Alex
-The story has to progress and more important how will Jo and Alex go down with it.
5.April was THERE!
-Her line to protect Arizona was so sweet. Great! :D
