Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Thriller"

at . Comments

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

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Thriller" in great detail. Now, TVF's Christina Tran and Steve Marsi, along with Jarrod Mitchell, are back for a Q&A discussion.

Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!


What was your favorite quote or scene from the episode?

Christina: I actually really liked the spooky music and the outrageous medical cases. I thought “Thriller” was fun and well done. Honestly, I was a little freaked out on more than one occasion. I would have never expected for that to happen with Grey’s Anatomy.

Jarrod: My favorite scene was probably the ending with Cristina and the cupcakes. It's like she wanted to let Mer know she was there, but without being there. It's as if she can still rely on her. Very bitter-sweet!

Steve: I liked the campy feel of it overall, and the fact that Richard finally apologized to Meredith. That was a long time coming and I'm glad it wasn't simply ignored. Great that he's teaching again, too.

Which spooky medical case was your favorite?

Christina: The zombie one! I was shocked Leah was actually bitten.

Jarrod: As much as I enjoyed the zombie, I must say the maggots in the leg. Not exactly a case I'd expect at Grey-Sloan memorial.

Steve: A maggot-infested wound is straight out of Dead Alive, not Halloween ... so I'll take the girl who was kind of literally scared to death.

Who had the best costume?

Christina: Jo! I really like her and she totally rocked her Tinkerbell costume.

Jarrod: Definitely little Sofia in the astronaut-princess costume. I'm not a Calzona fan, but to see both Callie and Arizona getting along for the sake of Sofia was very touching.

Steve: Jo, hands down. Cutest adult Tinkerbell ever. Sorry if that sounds creepy, but it's true.

Are Mer and Cristina on their way to reconciliation?

Christina: I am not sure, but I hope so. I’m already tired of seeing the besties on the outs. Surely, there are more stories to tell before Sandra Oh makes her exit.

Jarrod: I know they will. We've been through this in Grey's Anatomy Season 5 and Grey's Anatomy Season 7 and this is just another roadblock in their friendship. They'll be back on track before they know it. The question though is whether or not it'll be the same.

Steve: Hopefully, because it would be a shame if Sandra Oh's swan song was predominantly spent partially estranged from her person. I have to think they'll get back on track soon. If not the way it was, at least to a point where they're both happy with it again, given the changing circumstances.

There were some interesting Leah/Arizona, Stackson, Japril and even Crowen moments. Who are you shipping these days?

Christina: Jolex! Stackson is growing on me.

Jarrod: I'm been a Stackson fan since it happened. However, it's just annoying that they're not seen together like a normal couple should be. Nonetheless, Leah/Arizona are an intriguing couple.

Steve: I like to say Stackson the most, but I'm always a sucker for Crowen, and Arizona/Leah has piqued my interest as well. And of course Jolex. And MerDer. Guess I'm easy to please these days!

What do you all think of this week's Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 7? Share your responses below, and tell us where you think the show should go next!


what is the matter with Bailey


after 10 seasons, i guess its pretty hard to come up with something fresh....and especially after too many characters have died... :'( Here's what I want to see: 1. Something of a throwback —mention or at least remember some of our old characters
2. Addison needs to come back, maybe with her new husband and Henry. Amelia should come back too! Hell, just let the cast of Private Practice come back! But really, if I had to pick one of them to come, it would be Addison.
3. Cristina and Mer making up...I'm already sick of the tension btwn the two
4. Mer and Der more interesting — yes, they're parents, but they used to be my fav couple...right now Derek seems so useless in the plot
5. I really really can't stand Leah, not sure why but I just can't stand her, especially with Arizona
6. Ik Cristina will leave at the end of the season but I still fully support Crowen (even if Owen's girl right now is really really nice)
7. I hope Shane and Cristina won't get together...that'll be really weird
8. I like Jolex, it's a good combo, not one of my favs, but its good
9. As for the Jackson, Stephanie, April, Matthew "square", I'm pretty content at where it is...of course, I do prefer Japril over Stackson, but I think it's great that they're trying to work out their respective relationships...I know Shonda will take it further, there's so much to do with this, so I like where it's at. Stephanie is a little too young and perky for my liking in terms of being paired up with Jackson...and I really have no idea how April can commit Matthew for life, but still, I'm liking the direction of this :)


1.The bittersweet cup cake scene.
2.Callie's surgery
3.All the childrens costumes
4.It's gonna end with Cris alienating not only Mer but everyone else on the board. Cris will leave GSH because no one can tolerate her anymore, hopefully taking the male resident with her. LOL
5.MerDer all the way!


HATE stephany and jackson... i cant understand why people like them... COME ON NO CHEMESTRY AT ALL... stephany is so insipid..... jackson belongs to april all the way


I enjoy to see Stephanie and Jackson together. I hope they will remain for a while. Stephanie may be ambitious, but she’s normal. I found April too complicated and strange to interest a guy like Jackson.
I too hope that Meredith and Cristina get reconciled as soon as possible.
I'm not interested in Arizona's family, but I would want that Derek's sister Amelia come in Seattle to see her nephew Baby Bailey! I miss her so much! I wait for Addison too.


I like how even though Jolex wasn't an option, two people picked them.
I never thought I would like another girl with Alex except for Izzie (they were my OTP), so I'm really impressed with Shonda and Camilla for not only making me like Jo, but actually making me like her with Alex more than Izzie. I've never changed my mind about an OTP before, so Jolex is nothing short of amazing to me. They're what makes me think Grey's can stick around for several more seasons


Arizona's mom and sister?
Callie's brother?
Alex's mom and sister?
Owen's future sister in law and future mother in law?
Jackson's brother?
Richard's dad, brother and love interest?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
