Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Moment of Truth"

at .

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

Our official Grey's Anatomy review broke down last week's episode, "Moment of Truth," in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff members Courtney Morrison, Sean McKenna and Christina Tran have assembled for their weekly Q&A discussion to further debate and dissect the goings on at Seattle Grace/Mercy West.

Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!


1. Cristina was defending Owen to Meredith. Is she planning on taking him back?

Courtney: Yes and no. I think Yang is planning on forgiving him but she is not going to base her life around him anymore. She may take the chance to go to Stanford or Columbia.

Sean: I agree that she seems on the road to forgiveness and that's a good thing. I hope she's not planning to, but she really shouldn't. I know it's going to be hard, but it's time to move on.

Christina: “Should she take him back?” is the real question. And I’m not quite sure I would know the answer.

2. Richard hooked up with Catherine Avery. Was this wrong since he is still married to Adele?

Courtney: I don't think so. Granted, it's cheating. But his wife is sick and she is doing the same thing with Alan.

Sean: I know that Catherine and Richard have great chemistry, but I wasn't happy by his choice. I really felt like the writers gave him an "out" by having Adele cheat on him. And her Alzheimer's doesn't make her situation the same as his. Sure he made faces like he felt like he was in the wrong, but I guess I wish it would have at least taken more than just one episode before Richard hopped in the sack.

Christina: Cheating is cheating. However, like Courtney said, Adele technically cheated already. It’s a tough predicament Richard is in.

3. Jackson and April: Hot or not?

Courtney: Hot. It got Jackson shirtless and any scene with that is going to be hot. Plus, these two are fun together and it was nice to see them let loose.

Sean: Initially hot, but the whole regretting it and "I love Jesus" line was just another left field antic for April. She's so all over the place as a character from crying hysterically and jumping head first into a fight that it's hard to take her seriously.

Christina: Not! I honestly don’t care all too much for this coupling.

4. Assuming Alex gets to take the exam, which one of the residents fails their boards?

Courtney: Kepner. She was not with it when it was time to take the test. She was upset about her sleeping with Jackson, plus she was a wreck of nerves. She's someone that caves under pressure.

Sean: What if Meredith fails? That would be a huge twist. Even with her wonderful abilities as a doctor, I could see her leaving medicine behind and focusing on taking caring of Zola.

Christina: Blame it on her excessive annoyance throughout the entire episode, but I strangely wanted and kind of hoped April would be the one to fail.  

5. With contract negotiations going on, there is a chance that some of our favorite docs will not be back at SGH next year. If you had to pick one resident to stay, who would it be?

Courtney: Easy. Meredith Grey. Not only is she the voice of the show, but she is part of the heart. Her relationship with Derek and her friendship with Cristina has been part of the backbone of every season so far. A close second goes to Yang.

Sean: Meredith. I mean the show is called Grey's Anatomy! The show could certainly go on, but I just don't think it would be the same without her. Hopefully she sticks around.

Christina: Meredith Grey! It just won’t be the same without the once dark-and-twisty girl we’ve watch grow into a caring mom and wife, who has stayed true as an awesome surgeon throughout all these years. I really can’t imagine Grey’s Anatomy without her. (Insert sad face emoticon here.)

Grey's Anatomy Season 8 Episode 21 Quotes

They started off with such little promise, it's like I'm looking at a miracle.


The only thing between you and the rest of your career is a test in a random hotel in a random city with a random examiner asking you random questions. Nervous? You should be.
