Round Table: "From a Whisper to a Scream"
This week on the Round Table, Dr. Burke's future is left in doubt, Dr. Hahn makes her presence felt, Alex and Addison share an intense moment, and Seattle Grace sees a new side of George ...
What will happen to Dr. Burke?
McCritic: Anybody else is fired, stat. But this is Preston Burke. He may have to pass an extensive number of tests to make sure all tremors are in the past, but his reputation and mad skills will save his reputation. Soon enough, the Chief will deliver the two words we all love to hear: Carry on.
iheartizzie: It's doubtful he'll be shown the door, but his prospects of succeeding Richard as Chief of Surgery are on life support.
Married-to-McDreamy: Dr. Burke will be given the golden handshake. With his left hand, of course.
Would Dr. Hahn make a good addition to the staff?
Married-to-McDreamy: Yes. Not only is she a talented cardio-thoracic surgeon with a take-no-prisoners attitude, but she has great hair!
McCritic: A woman who seems focused on her job and not the opposite sex every second of every day? No way. She'd never fit in at Seattle Grace.
iheartizzie: Dr. Hahn is awesome. She kicked everyone's butt in medical school with the exception of one person, and that eats at her to this day. She's ruthless, but a consummate pro who also gives credit where it's due.
Her rivalry with Burke made both of them better surgeons, and a woman of Erica's talent and strength would invariably raise the bar for the staff.
Do you like the new George?
Married-to-McDreamy: Yes! It's about time George stood up for himself. The new George is finally showing that he is a strong person and it's going to earn him respect in the long run, even if he does manage to piss off all of his friends and colleagues in the meantime.
McCritic: The one that loves his father and remains loyal enough to Dr. Burke to keep his secret quiet? Yeah. He's a pretty good guy.
iheartizzie: Meek, confused and bumbling George is endearing and someone we've grown to love. But you have to stand up for yourself and act strong sometimes, especially when it comes to family. It's good to see that Bambi can evolve into a strong buck, if you will, when the situation calls for it. Sincere apologies for the awful deer analogy.
Would Addison and Alex work as a couple?
McCritic: No. Never. Don't even think about it. Stop sticking your stethoscope on the hospital torso, doctors. There are members of the opposite sex outside Seattle Grace, you know. Sexual tension and awkardness is high enough on this show without any more OR-gies taking place among the staff.
iheartizzie: The sexual tension between Dr. Montgomery and the Vagina Squad Captain is palpable. While this pairing would seem, on the surface, completely illogical, being confined to Addison's service for a time allowed Alex to grow in ways we never knew he could. Maybe these two will share more than just the moment last week. Plus, in Dr. Karev's own words, Addison is McHot, and the Insider wants to start a poll in which readers choose the official couple name - Addex, Alexison, Montgomerev, etc.
Married-to-McDreamy: I'm not sure if they would work as a couple, due to their strong personalities, but they sure do look good together! I would love to see that relationship develop.
