Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Support System"

by at . Comments

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.

1. Best scene was Cristina showing up to study at the end. Can we please have the real Cristina back now?
2. I hope Avery and April fail and vanish. Time to cut the dead weight.
3. Webber will always be the Chief. Mark is a cartoon character. Can't take him seriously at all.
4. No. Cristina needs to dump him. He has never been worth it, and never will be. The last thing she needs is a condescending, controlling cave man. The real Cristina would've seen this by now. So tedious.
5. None. The established couples are all boring. Wasn't there a time when Grey's was a sexy show? It sure isn't now.

Sorry - not everything came over the first time - :-(
2 – I think Avery will fail the boards 3 - No - once the Chief always the Chief - everyone thinks being the top dog is so much fun. Derek found out that is not the case. Still loved Mark as Chief for a Day - he's terrific & is totally underused on this show & I would like for Mark 4 - Yes - BETTER WRITING for these two could really accomplish how much two people can stare down the barrel of adversity & come out 200% better than when they originally started out - not sure that will happen. I'd rather have them divorce now, as to attempt to bring them back to try to reconcile only to find it won't work later. Sometimes no matter how much two people are in love with each other, sometimes they just can't & don't make it. Love is never enough. 5 - Pretty obvious - Owen & Cristina - they have been my favorite couple since he came on the show 4 years ago.

1 - Cristina uncontrollably crying in bed & Owen getting in bed lying next to her holding her & trying to comfort her. This is just my one woman's opinion. I think Shonda missed the boat on this one. Shonda is into shocking us. She would have given us all heart failure if she had the one person that not a one of us would have ever dreamed in a million years would cheat - Cristina Yang. The set up for it was perfect – the hospital shooting with the shooter holding the gun to her head when operating on Derek & then after it she was not being able to depend upon Owen to help her through her PTSD (which he barely did.) Shonda could have done so much with a jaw dropping twist but she went for the same ol', same ol ... don’t understand why it is that she usually goes after the guy to be the cheater – Richard, Derek, Mark & now Owen ... if one really must do a cheating story, at least make us not see it coming. Just sayin’ …. 2 – I think Avery will fail the boards 3 - No - once the Chief always the Chief - everyone thinks being the top dog is so much fun. Derek found out that is not the case. Still loved Mark as Chief for a Day - he's terrific & is totally underused on this show & I would like for Mark 4 - Yes - BETTER WRITING for these two could really accomplish how much two people can stare down the barrel of adversity & come out 200% better than when they originally started out - not sure that will happen.

1.Owen telling Derek that he wanted him or Webber as cheif.
2. I think Alex will fail
3.NO! Webber knew what he was doing. HE had this jobs longer than Sloan has and knows what's best
4.Cristina should leave Owen sinc ehe resents her for the abortion and wanted to hurt her. She may get over it but she'll always know that he will resent her.
5. Callie and Arizona!

-fave couple......ben and bailey.

-Sloan is pure unadulterated entertainment, so anything with him.
- hopefully all of them. Because they choose not to give us much on April asks Avery in regards to that its easy for some to assume they fail. It would be most entertaining if despite all that mer somehow fails.
- essentially he wasn't but it frustrates me quite often that they all deliberately choose to not take mark seriously at all. It borders on being disrespectful and it happens frequently. It could have been done tactfully.
- I kind if hope so. They've been thru so much already. But they have to forgive each other. Unlike most fans I believe they're both victims in their marriage. They hurt each other and its beyond infidelity and abortion. On the other hand they both deserve better than what they're getting right now. I don't see Owen as a bad person no more then Christina. I understand them both so I hope ut doesn't become a skewed thing as their other stories have been where no matter what Owen does he becomes the pariah of his peers and fans. I hats that.

1 - Cristina crying in bed.
Arizona forcing Callie and Bailey to coming out with Teddy. 2 - Avery will fail. 3 - Of course not. Sloan shouldn’t be the Chief ever; He is ridiculous and just wants bossing in everyone.
(You forgot to mention that Sloan cheated the hospital for be the Chief, Hunt told Derek that he left the position for Derek or Webber. This situation is disgusting and Sloan should be punished for it). 4 - Cristina shouldn’t forgive Owen. She deserves better. 5 - Callie and Arizona of course.

Every little kid knows the words to the song. The foot bones connected to the leg bone. The leg bones connected to the knee bone. In med school, you learn it's a little more complicated than that. The songs not wrong. Everything is connected.
