Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "The End is the Beginning is the End"

at . Comments

Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!

Last week's Grey's Anatomy review broke down "The End is the Beginning is the End" in great detail. Now, TV Fanatic staff members Sean McKenna, Christina Tran and Courtney Morrison are back for a Q&A discussion of many of the episode's events. Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!


1. Do you think April and Jackson will rekindle their relationship or do you like him with the intern?

Christina: I'm not an April fan so I actually like Jackson better with the intern. Besides maybe April can find someone outside of the hospital for a change. 

Courtney: Long term, Jackson and April will end up together. But for right now, his little fling with the intern is kind of fun. A little less drama filled than his relationship with April.

Sean: I feel like the show maybe wants April and Jackson together, but there's no way that will happen with the way April acts at this point. I'm curious to see how sleeping with the intern will work out or if he'll dramatically reveal that he's been missing April all along.

2. Will Alex and Jo's friendship last or will it become something more?

Christina: This is a couple I am definitely rooting for; however, I'm also digging their unusual blossoming friendship. I say let them be friends for just awhile longer 'til they jump that brand new couch.

Courtney: Definitely becoming something more! The past few weeks they have been setting them up to be a girl that Alex can trust. He deserves a relationship and I think Jo may be the one.

Sean: I've got a strong strong feeling it will become something more. I'm kind of secretly hoping Alex would find someone else other than an intern (have all the interns hooked up with the doctors yet?), but I have to say that the episode made me feel more okay with Alex and Jo together. It felt more at ease than overdramatic confrontation. I guess we'll see how it goes.

3. If you received $15 million, what would you do with it?

Christina: I think about this all the time with the lottery and all. Of course I'd do whatever it took to be entirely debt free. Then, there's saving some and donating some even. Most importantly, though, I'd take my friends and family on the best vacation ever... or buy an island and move ASAP!

Courtney: Like Christina said... first thing is to be debt free. Then of course, set up for the future of me and my family. Then it would be time to have some fun!

Sean: Create world peace! This is always a tough one to answer but fun to think about. I'd probably dish out a few dollars to friends and family but I'm bound to get a few niceties for myself too. Fancy sportscar? Waverunner? A boatload of candy?

4. Who is your favorite happy couple and will it last?

Christina: MerDer always. And of course it'll last!

Courtney: No question. Meredith and Derek. They are the core couple of the show and they better live happily ever after. You hear that, Shonda?

Sean: Meredith and Derek. They just work perfectly together even with everything they've been through, it will all work out for them.

5. How will Seattle Grace going bankrupt affect the survivors relationship with the hospital?

Christina: It seems like it'd be too easy to assume that the survivors would save the hospital, but that's actually all I've got. I'm curious to see how creative the writers get with this one.

Courtney: It will make them more of an outcast. They are already the doctors that all the bad things happen to and they are all having relationships with each other. I'm with Christina though, they will end up saving the hospital... it's like their home.

Sean: I want this whole aspect of the show to be riveting and heavy on some real drama, but I'm afraid it will all work out easily and perfectly for everyone. It just feels like the survivors will end up helping the hospital, although the concept of Seattle Grace having to close is an interesting one.

1. I will suggect April to date Robert( proably you forgot him) not Jackson.
Jackson will be like other Mark who goes around women 2.Alex needs a matual woman to take care of him ( he's not like Der/Owen as family man) ,I really don't like Jo, Cristina said in S2?S3? if she had USD 8M, buy one clinic and make her do surgry everday 4.I love Owen and Cristina as a couple,good to see Crowen having fun and laughing, but I doubt they can't be happy long in Shondaland 5. the lawsuit story is non-sense, Seattle Grace is a teaching hospital and top15 in UA, they must have hired a lot of smart lawyers, Bankrupt isn't happen!!


@prudence Owen did sign the contract and I agree with @ kimski said. Owen is just the Cheif of Surgery not the hospital CEO or owner. So he dosent have the power to make all these big desions. My next point is how was Alex able to buy Meredith's
whole house? He's a surgeon not a NFl player. Im so sick of Jackson he's ugly and he can't act. Catherine is annoying to.


I was just about to say the same thing. They'll get the money and donate it to the hospital... no hospital no Greys,,,, they wouldn't just separate them all over again... the hospital will be fine one way or another. Also Shonda has been saying for months that this season Alex would find his true love. She's also been setting up this friendship for weeks. I mean come on how ironic? The one girl who refuses to sleep with him and be like the other interns and poof she magically ends up falling in love with him.


This might be a really dumb question but couldnt they just acccept the money and then donate all of it (or most of it?) back to the hospital ???????


Owen did not sign the contract for the airplane. He's a Chief of Surgery not the Contracting Officer for the hospital. You should know that if you work in a hospital. Unless you're in some third world country.


-I agree with Christina. I'm not an April fan, she treated him like crap, and I much prefer him with the intern, who is kinda cool compared to the other interns. Plus April and Jackson always felt like sibling like to me and I was turned off when they started sleeping together.
- they'll inevitably hook up but I actually dig them as friends.
- Debts. Take care of my loved ones. Charity and travel.
- hunt and Yang.
-I'd love to see them as outcasts. "Blaming the victims " it would be an interesting story.


I think they will save the hospital and become part owners. None of the Surgeons really need the money. They are already wealthy. I also think Owen will be fired as the Chief of Surgery. How could he not be since he is the one that signed the contract that set the whole thing into action. The big question is will they try to fire him completely? The thing that is not real in this show is Owen is just Chief of Surgery, not the Hospital CEO. I work at a hospital and the Chief of Surgery is not the person who would make decisions like this. The CEO of the hospital would. So in this part Grey's Anatomy is way off. Also the CEO is usually a Business person and not a Dr. Having said that Grey's Anatomy is my favorite show. That is the only part of the show that has ever really bothered me since I know how hospitals really work. Well, that and the fact that Meredith is always the one with so much heartache. I really hope Shonda sees fit to let her carry this baby full term and actually have some happiness without tragedy. I also want Alex to be happy for once with someone stable who loves him like Izzie did. I would love to see him married and with a child before the show ends. I am happy that Callie and Arizona are finally on the same page and that Owen and Christina are happy again. Please Shonda let Meredith and Derek have an uneventful pregnancy and healthy baby. Meredith really does deserve that and please don't let Zola get really sick and possibly die. I worry about that because of all of her health issues. They haven't dealt with any in awhile with her so I am waiting for that to rear it's ugly head.


1)before this episode i never liked the idea of april with jackson. after the last moments of an emotional april a convert. 2)at this point its obvious that alex and jo are gonna end up only hope though...the friendly spirit of the relationship remains alive..not super mushy cheesy crap. 3)id invest at least half of it for future returns...and blow away the other half on a house, a yacht and rodeo drive!! 4) OWEN HUNT-CRISTINA YANG. meant to be.( kevin mckidd is one of the major factors im still watching greys!) 5)survivors becoming the new owners is a possibility...but i just hope the airline has to bear the real burden of it!


MerDer forever. What's wrong with you people?!?
i watch the show for them, and I wait for the movie- shonda will you let us have part 1 please? romantic Meredith & Derek. That will do. Thanks.


1. Jason's better with intern,WJ's cating is sooo poor, let April hook up other someone else, I prefer Apri and Alex
2.I don't like Jo, maybe Writers gave her too much screentime and she couldn't preform well
3 set up a fund for poor people
4. CrOwen is my fav, I watch GA only for Kevin Mckidd
5.I don't think MerDer & CA will care the bankrupt,only Cristina dose care
