Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Support System"
Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Our official Grey's Anatomy review broke down last week's episode, "Support System," in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff members Courtney Morrison, Sean McKenna and Christina Tran have assembled for their weekly Round Table discussion to further debate and dissect the goings on at Seattle Grace/Mercy West.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
Courtney: Sandra Oh killed it in this episode with pretty much every scene. If I had to choose one, it would be her bathroom scene.
Sean: "Beef with the Chief." Sloan did a pretty decent job as the chief and it was a nice change rather than seeing Webber or Derek fill in. The guy really brings a humor even when he's being serious. Rise to the occasion, Derek. Rise.
Christina: Cristina: "I'm supposed to be studying for my boards, the most important exam of my life. And instead, I'm locked in the bathroom crying over a boy." Been there, done that... then again, who hasn't?
2. Meredith is prepared for the boards. Who else is bound to pass or who is going to fail?
Courtney: Of course Grey is prepared, she's Ellis' daughter! Cristina is a machine and Alex is the underdog, so I'm voting that both of these pass. Kepner? Not so sure about.
Sean: I hope they all pass so we can see a brand new shift in story lines for the characters. Although, for some reason I could see Avery not passing. Not because he isn't smart, but maybe he doesn't test well. Plus, there would be a lot of drama because of his family legacy.
Christina: I am fairly certain that Meredith, Alex and Cristina will all pass. However, I'm not so sure about Kepner and Avery.
3. Was Webber wrong in going against Chief For The Day Sloan?
Courtney: Nope! Rules are meant to be broken. Webber knew what he was doing, he was the chief for how many years. What he did saved a life, even if it wasn't pretty. I think Sloan realized it too.
Sean: Well, he shouldn't have gone against the chain of command, but what if he hadn't saved the man's life? I guess if anything Sloan learned that being chief doesn't mean everything has to be perfect.
Christina: Ultimately, Webber was right, but I still think he could have handled himself much better in a more professional manner. He could have tried again to make his case instead of sneaking around behind Sloan's back then blasting him in front of everyone. Sure, Sloan needed the lesson, but I didn't like the way Webber handled the situation.
4. Should Cristina forgive Owen and try to fix her marriage? Can they even make it work after this?
Courtney: This is Cristina Yang we are talking about. She deserves better than a man who purposely wants to hurt her by having an affair. I think they will work it out because Owen is her husband and she loves him, but the road is not going to be easy.
Sean: She can forgive him if she wants but I think their relationship should be over. He cheated on her and that's clearly in the wrong. My only problem with the whole situation is I didn't buy him doing it to hurt her because of the baby. I knew he was hurt over that but I find it more believable that he was lonely and wanted the attention and affection from someone when he wasn't getting it from Cristina. Still a bad choice on his part and he'll have to live with that decision, but that makes more sense to me. Sorry guys, their time is done.
Christina: Tough one! They both (more so, Cristina) need a break from one another. I feel like their bickering has been nonstop all season long, and am not sure that I care either way if they work things out or not. Just give them a break!
5. Who is your favorite couple on Grey’s Anatomy right now?
Courtney: The obvious answer - Meredith and Derek. The two have become such a perfect fit and are enjoyable to watch in a non-annoying way. Runner up goes to Bailey and Ben. Gotta love a couple who likes to "salsa."
Sean: Bailey and Ben. For now they are drama free and only really have to worry about getting it on... I mean salsa dancing.
Christina: Easy. Merder. Always have been, always will be.
