Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Can't Fight This Feeling" in great detail. Now, TVF's Christina Tran, Sean McKenna and Steve Marsi are back for a Q&A discussion of the episode's events.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite quote or scene from this week’s episode?
Christina: As I mentioned in my review, my favorite moment may have been when Meredith and Zola showed up for Bailey’s genome mapping project. Forget about Mer’s days of being dark and twisty. Mer as a mommy is so much more interesting.
Sean: The last scene with Meredith and Bailey. It's still a underlying issue of Meredith perhaps getting Alzheimer's, but she seemed more at peace with the prospect either way. She just wanted to know for her kid's sake.
Steve: Anything with Owen. Unexpected and wonderful to see that side of him.
2. Which medical storyline did you like the best?
Christina: It’s hard not to pick Sarah Chalke’s storyline with Meredith. I thought that Sarah did an amazing job portraying a frantic and desperate mother just trying to help her son.
Sean: I think I liked the one that left Owen with the kid. I really liked seeing Owen in that particular role. I guess that's less about the case and more of what came from it, but that's what stuck out the most for me.
Steve: The only problem with bringing on a guest star as awesome as Sarah Chalke is that you end up being genuinely sad she's not sticking around. I could watch her every week, and not just because I used to have a major crush on Dr. Reid. In all seriousness, she was really good.
3. What’s more likely to happen: Jalex or Japril (again)?
Christina: Jalex, and I can’t wait. April is finally tolerable, and something tells me that’ll change once Japril hooks up again.
Sean: I think Alex and Jo for now, but I've got a feeling that Jackson and April will be close behind. Those two aren't done yet.
Steve: Jalex for sure, but I agree with both Sean and Christina that Japril Redux seems inevitable as well. Jalex first, but both are going to happen and be entertaining to watch unfold.
4. Which side plot did you enjoy more: Callie’s preparation for her speech or Owen illustrating that he could be an awesome parent?
Christina: Owen was just so amazing with Ethan. I thought it was really interesting the way he was effortlessly caring, and I’m kind of intrigued to see if baby talk will come up again for Owenstina.
Sean: Owen like I said before. He's always wanted to be a parent, and here we got to see a glimpse of what that would be like.
Steve: Gotta go with my girl Callie on this one, just to give her a shout out. Sara Ramirez does a consistently great job on the show even when she's relegated to a side plot like this one.
5. GSMH is running awfully smoothly. Is this a good or bad thing? How long do you give for Shonda and company to shake things up again?
Christina: It’s a good thing! All of that lawsuit/plane crash chaos was overwhelming. I’m definitely one who loves the drama, but also have always appreciated the medical stories. With things going just fine at the hospital, we are finally getting to see some cool cases and the doctors just being doctors. I hope the writers can hold off until the season finale with something so crazy that leaves us only wanting more.
Sean: I'm kind of surprised that things are running smoothly to begin with, but I hope it stays smooth. I'd rather they focus on dealing with the medicine and the regular work/relationships, rather than some major shooting or bombing or whatever catastrophe the show hasn't done yet.
Steve: If you've seen any Grey's Anatomy clips from this coming week, you know there's plenty of drama ahead. But that's to be expected on emotional and personal levels. Otherwise we'd have no show! Yet hopefully when it comes to the hospital's financial ruin or major natural disasters, we can at least rest easy for awhile.
