Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Second Opinion"
Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!
Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down "Second Opinion" in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff members Sean McKenna, Christina Tran and Steve Marsi have assembled for their weekly Q&A discussion.
Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!
1. What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Christina: For the first time in a long time, nothing stuck out to me.
Sean: The awkward Jackson talk. Having him try and be the go between for his mom and Webber's emails were hilarious.
Steve: There were a bunch that I really enjoyed this week, chiefly Meredith naming off all the problems that Alex had, and Bailey working her genius magic to con Arizona. Well played, Miranda.
2. What did you think of Cristina's return?
Christina: It's about time! I liked when she realized that Owen was the one pushing for her to come back.
Sean: Yes! I still wanted Thomas to go with her but I'm glad she's back to where she belongs.
Steve: Man, she's the best. Grey's Anatomy Season 1 seems like an eternity ago, and the show is totally different now, but Sandra Oh's performance has been a constant throughout the show's run. It was great to see her back in her element and dishing out the one-liners left and right, with the deeper emotional complexity just below the surface.
3. Do you think any characters didn't get enough screen time this week?
Christina: I think there was a fair amount of screen time for everyone this time around. There's also quite possible too much time given to April.
Sean: I think everyone got a fair amount of time but I would have liked to see Alex get some more to do. I am curious how the roommate situation will work out with him.
Steve: I'm always partial to what's left of the original cast: Meredith, Bailey, Derek, Richard, Alex and Cristina. I like the new people (some of whom have been around a long time in their own right), but any plot line that focuses on them is viewed through a different lens, at least for me. Maybe this is part of the reason I loved the Mer/Cristina installment.
4. Can Jackson and April make it work or are they doomed to fail?
Christina: I can't say I care. April is dreadfully annoying still.
Sean: They seem to want to work together and I don't mind if they do. That said she needs to stop with her Jesus rants. They sound forced and will not only drive Jackson away, but me from caring about them together.
Steve: No, Jackson and April are not the General Motors of relationships. Too big to fail, they are not by a long shot. That said, I think they can make it work if things go right and they are prepared to dig deep.
5. Is suing the hospital a good thing or a bad thing?
Christina: It's majorly bad. Things are going to get heated, and I can't wait to see what happens next.
Sean: Can they? Should they? Either way it's going to cause a lot of drama that I'm curious to see unfold.
Steve: Bad. I can see both sides, but if it's me, I let it go and move on. Then again, that's boring TV!
