Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Fear (of the Unknown)"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

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

Our review broke down Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 24, "Fear (of the Unknown)" in detail. Now Christina Tran and Steve Marsi, along with Jarrod Mitchell, are back for a Q&A.

Read their answers to the questions and weigh in with yours!

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

What was your favorite quote or scene from the finale?

Christina: There were so many amazing quotes and scenes, but my favorite was when Cristina said: “I can’t go. We have to dance it out. That’s how we finish.” Ah, dancing it out… one of my favorite pastimes.

Jarrod: I'm probably with Christina on this one. The dancing it out scene was fantastic scene for the two. And Cristina's final words to Meredith: "You are a gifted surgeon with an extraordinary mind. Don't let what he wants eclipse what you need. He's very dreamy, but he's not the sun; you are." Perfect finish.

Steve: My fellow Round Tablers said it best. Since we knew Cristina was departing, it was a fitting end and all that we could have hoped for.

Which surprise interests you more: Cristina left her shares and possible seat on the board to Alex or Cristina’s replacement could be Webber’s daughter / Meredith’s half-sister?

Christina: The latter is making it seem like Grey’s Anatomy is potentially becoming General Hospital. I’m more interested in the vacancy on the board storyline. Bailey is going to flip out!

Jarrod: I'm not surprised by either. I expected Cristina to hand them off to Alex. The two really bonded the past few seasons and I knew she'd leave some parting gift. The illegitimate child was something I've been waiting for the writers to drop one day... Ellis's years in Boston had to mean something ...

Steve: The Webber/Ellis child felt inevitable in a sense; if you watch Grey's Anatomy year in and year out, you half-expected it to drop at some point ... and yet still, wow! That was definitely the bigger bombshell, although Cristina's shares and the future of her seat may be more interesting. Tough call!

Which was more shocking: Leah surprisingly showing up or Shane joining Cristina in Zurich?

Christina: Shane leaving Seattle behind made sense. He’s always looked up to Cristina. I was more surprised to see Leah and am glad the writers gave us an opportunity to see her in a good light one last time.

Jarrod: I was quite shocked to see Leah go down without a fight. The eye-thing (which was a bit repulsive) just went to show that she is just as much as a gifted doctor as anyone else on this show. Too bad we'll never get anymore development on that character. I'd have like to have seen some Jo-Stephanie-Leah action trio next season with Shane now out the door.

Steve: Leah, if only because I thought Shane departing made perfect sense.

Pen a short farewell to Cristina.

Christina: I’m going to miss you like crazy. GSMH will never be the same again without you, but know that you are never finished – you are Cristina Yang.

Jarrod: Cristina, you've been my favorite surgeon since day one and I can only hope that Zurich can offer you what GSMH could not: safety.

Steve: #GOAT. Nothing else to say.

Which storyline are you looking forward to the most this fall when Grey’s Anatomy returns?

Christina: I’m very curious to see what decision Derek makes. No one likes seeing the McDream team (see what I did there?!) fight, but their argument was necessary. Like Cristina said, Meredith should never let what Derek wants eclipse what she needs.

Jarrod: Probably some JoLex. I feel that their relationship didn't get much of a chance this season due to other overshadowing story lines. Hopefully a lot of babies too. I'd like to see Ben and Bailey get a chance at parenthood together, seeing as we're probably in for some Japril and Calzona babies as well.

Steve: With Cristina gone, I'm most interested in seeing where things go for the original characters remaining: Meredith, Derek, Bailey and Alex. All have some very interesting loose ends to be tied up ... or to become looser still.

Cristina to Meredith: You're My Person
Meredith is Cristina's "person." This is the first time these two have used that term on Grey's Anatomy.

I am mostly looking forward to how Owen handles Cristina's absence.. And hoping that he forms a real friendship with Meredith or Callie.. Also intrigued with the Amelia Shepard story..hope they make her a regular. . Another half sister was just plain bad writing...I mean Meredith remembers her mom slitting her wrists when she was in Seattle but not remember her being pregnant for months especially when she was at least an year older that the failed suicide attemp?seriously?

I honestly hated the season finale it was boreing unresolved cliff hangers im hoping a better season in the fall.

I was disappointed about the illegitimate child cliffhanger. As said in the round table, it feels like General Hospital! G-S is already pretty incestuous, so to speak. I guess Dr. Pierce should be thankful that Ellis put her up for adoption given what Meredith went through. While it gives the message of "life goes on without Cristina," it took away from her leaving. People had already called Shane going to Zurich with Cristina, so it wasn't much of a surprise. But it looks like he went to the airport with her and just got on the plane, which, especially these days, is not going to happen. (Plus, he was wearing the same color scrubs when he got her for the meeting at the end...the only clothes he had?) I had no clue whether Leah was a good surgeon or not; she certainly seemed to be a good doctor in this episode. I thought the cutting of an intern was nicely done by telling her she needs another specialty. Richard was very nice and gentle about it, and he's probably right. And it's not like she couldn't stay at S-G; after all, there appear to be other departments when they decide to show them!

Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 24 Quotes

Sometimes the future changes quickly and completely, and we’re left with only the choice of what to do next. We can choose to be afraid of it, to stand there trembling not moving, assuming the worst that can happen or we step forward into the unknown and assume it will be brilliant.

Cristina

Cristina: I have to finish something here. Nothing feels finished. None of it feels finished. Owen and I… we’re split over something that hasn’t even happened and we never even split up. And you and I are not finished. George is dead and he’s gone and it’s supposed to you, me, and Alex and now nothing is finished. I am not finished.
Meredith: You don’t feel finished because this isn’t the end for you. There’s no finish line. There’s no end point. You just have to go.
