We’ve patiently waited two weeks for a new episode of Grey's Anatomy, and it’s finally here! Season 9, Episode 3: “Love the One You’re With” airs tonight (October 18), and we’ve already picked out some major clues from the episode based on several sneak peeks, promos, and previews. Below, check out the 5 biggest clues we’ve rounded up.
1. Arizona has made progress, and she’s talking to Alex.
The last time (chronologically) we saw Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), she was majorly depressed. She was barely talking to Callie (Sara Ramirez), let alone Alex (Justin Chambers), who she blamed for her condition. But in this preview, we see Arizona sitting up in bed and wearing a new shirt. Plus, she’s actually having a conversation with Alex!
2. April and Jackson have an emotional, sexy reunion.
April (Sarah Drew) will not only be surprised to see that Jackson (Jesse Williams) is still in Seattle, but she won’t be able to keep her hands (or her lips) off of him. That marriage proposal? We’ll finally get to see it in context tonight.
3. Owen and Cristina are getting closer.
While Cristina (Sandra Oh) continues to struggle in Minnesota, she’ll look to Owen (Kevin McKidd) for support on the phone. She tells him, “We can’t keep doing this.” Does she mean breaking up? Could this be a sign that they’re getting closer to reuniting?
4. Alex will get laid. Again.
Alex will continue to deter his grief and guilt by sleeping with as many people as possible, and his next target will be the new intern Jo.
5. MerDer might even get laid!
We kid. But new parents Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) definitely have a few intimate scenes tonight. They’ll make out in bed, and even on the floor of their house, surrounded by Zoila’s toys.
