Let the awkward moments begin on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.
In three new clips from Thursday’s episode, titled “Love the One You’re With,” April (Sarah Drew) makes her triumphant return to Seattle Grace after Owen (Kevin McKidd) asked her to return to her former position.

Turns out, the lovely Dr. Hunt didn’t tell anyone that she’d be returning — as an attending, no less! — including Jackson (Jesse Williams). Even better: the chief of surgery also didn’t mention to April that Jackson opted to pass on taking the gig in Tulane and that the guy with whom she had a boards-inspired fling was still scrubbing in at Seattle Grace.
Elsewhere, Cristina (Sandra Oh) begins to make new friends in Minnesota — with Dr. Parker (Desperate Housewives‘ Steven Culp) — as the shop talk turns potentially flirtatious.

Speaking of flirting, Alex (Justin Chambers) has new intern Jo (Camilla Luddington) assigned to his service and begins to make a move on the chick with the guy’s name. Callie (Sara Ramirez), however, has other ideas about the potential pairing and doesn’t hold back with what so far has been the funniest line of the medical drama’s dark and twisty ninth season.
