Warning: Spoilers ahead!

That sure was a steamy intro – Meredith and Derek, Cristina and her Minnesota “sex-friend,” April and Jackson who keep insisting it’s the last time (yah right!), and then Jackson’s mom and Dr. Webber.

And if that wasn’t enough sex, a patient came in with scrotal lymphedema (aka genital elephantiasis –I don’t suggest you google it).

Kevin McKidd who plays Owen, directed the episode and he promised a lighter tone – a huge relief after all the post-plane crash fall-out.

But it wasn’t all on-call room hookups and sly looks across hospital hallways.

Meredith starts keeping her surgeries from Derek who is stuck teaching uninterested interns the most basic of procedures.

But after nine seasons, Meredith should know that keeping things from Derek never works. Of course he finds out.

“My wife is bubble wrapping me,” Derek tells Owen as they watch Meredith’s surgery.

“You have a reputation of needing bubble wrap,” Owen responds, citing the multiple times he’s run off to his trailer in the woods to “drink beer and grow a beard.”

But Derek insists that he won’t this time. And we hope he’s right on that one.

And in the most heartbreaking of storylines, a not-so-friendly Arizona snaps at Callie, and the prosthetist who is fitting her for an artificial leg, and just about anyone else who crosses her path.

Callie reveals to Owen that things are so bad she’s taken to sleeping at Mark’s, though that’s also not an ideal situation.

“I don’t think I can take another night in my dead best friend’s bed,” she says, ordering them both a drink at Joe’s

But despite her frustration and grief, Arizona ends up taking her first step and ends up falling into Karev’s arms.

“We need you back,” he insists.

“I’m trying,” Arizona reveals in her first non-angry moment since the amputation

In a rare moment of generosity, Alex adds, “You know, Callie’s trying too.”

And it looks like Karev’s words hold water as Arizona and Callie end up watching TV together on the couch. Not quite “back to normal,” but at least a step in the right direction.
