"Pick me. Choose me. Love me."

Ever since Meredith Grey uttered those infamous words to her beloved McDreamy in season two of Grey's Anatomy, fans of the long-running ABC medical soap have known one thing for sure: This show knows how to deliver a truly excellent love triangle.

In the course of its 15 seasons, the show, finally returning tonight after its lengthy holiday break, has had some epic ones. And this season's no different. Not only is Mer (Ellen Pompeo) back in a love triangle of her own, with suitors DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) and Link (Chris Carmack) vying for her affections, but Owen (Kevin McKidd) is back in one of his own with ex-wife Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) and pregnant former fling Teddy (Kim Raver). 

During a recent visit to the Grey's set, E! News tasked showrunner Krista Vernoff with teasing the future of these triangles—as well as the rest of the relationships we love to obsess over—in the second half of the season. When it came to the Owen of it all, she informed us that things will be "complicated and messy" from here on out. No kidding! As for Mer's situation, and the futures of all our other faves, you're going to have to check out the video above.

Before we see what sort of decisions Meredith and Owen make—or don't—when Grey's returns, it's time for a refresher course on all who've been in this position before them. This is the definitive guide to Grey's Anatomy's love triangles!
