There was no new Grey's Anatomy this week (thanks, politics), but at least ABC was nice enough to release a new promo teasing next Thursday's Season 9, Episode 3: “Love the One You’re With.”

The theme: Sex, sex, and more sex! From cute moments between MerDer and Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Ben to what looks like a tough phone call between Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh), there's a lot to look forward to.

Plus, for those of you who are fans of Shonda Rhimes's other juicy Thursday drama, Scandal, there's some good stuff for that, too.
