Grey's Anatomy Recap : "I Saw Her Standing There" Season 9, Episode 4

Warning: The promos were not misleading. Cristina did sleep with someone other than Owen during this week's episode of Grey's Anatomy. Before you C/O fans break Twitter with vitriol aimed at Shonda Rhimes, don't get too worked up; he's just a sex friend!

Yeah, that information probably isn't too reassuring. But Thursday's episode was full of hilarious moments that should soften the blow. Let's take a look at this week's top moments:

It's all about sex, baby: Grey's was heavy on the private displays of affection this week as Meredith and Derek had some McMansion sex, while Jackson and April found they couldn't really keep their hands off each other. But it's Cristina who made the worst mistake by sleeping with Dr. Parker — what is with this woman and sleeping with her bosses?! Is all hope lost for Owen and Cristina?

Mommy issues: Speaking of sex, Webber is apparently a dynamo in the sack! This according to Catherine Avery, who returned this week to help the former Chief with a rather large surgery — bad joke, we know. (The surgery in question was on a man who had giant testicles.) At first the duo try to keep their love life secret, but it all comes tumbling out eventually. However, Jackson decides to accept his mother's relationship with Webber because he knows how powerful sex is.

Cristina's new friend: No, we're not talking about her sex friend, we mean Dr. Thomas, with whom Cristina has formed a fun bond. He's Minnesota Mer! She even gives him the heads up that the hospital is trying to force him to retire, and walks him through a difficult surgery. For a woman who doesn't often care about others, it's nice to see she's capable of finding new friends outside of Seattle. Now the question is: How will this new dynamic duo be broken up so Cristina can come back to Seattle? (We're guessing his demise via a heart attack. Sad face.)

Arizona's new outlook: Though she's been exceedingly frustrated with her plight, Arizona finally takes a look in the mirror (literally) and realizes that she can get through having one leg and a prosthetic — and she doesn't have to do it alone. After a little advice from Alex, Arizona lets Callie in via some good old-fashioned TV watching.

Derek's new profession: Since he can't get back in the OR, Derek has taken to lecturing — though the interns don't seem too eager to learn. (Except Gaius Charles!) Because of this, Meredith has decided not to discuss her upcoming rare surgery. Turns out,  that's exactly the opposite of what she should do; this whole time Derek just needed some sort of surgery fix, which he eventually gets when Mer later runs down the procedure.

Owen's new digs: Realizing that Cristina may never come back, Owen decides to ditch the firehouse for Derek's trailer in the woods. That'll probably be a good location for him to scream very loudly once he finds out what Cristina did.

How did you feel about Cristina cheating on Owen? Hit the comments with your frustrations!
