Lapril fans, you may want to turn away. In a brand new sneak peek of this week’s ‘Chasing Life,’ we find out that Leo may be awake, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to become close to April again — at all. Watch it here!
This is definitely not what we were hoping for. After Leo (Scott Michael Foster) finally woke up after a four-month coma, April (Italia Ricci) was more than eager to pick up on the friendship-or-maybe-more that they had prior to his surgery. However, that’s not what he wanted. Watch this new clip of the Jan. 26 episode!
‘Chasing Life’: Leo & April’s Relationship — What’s Next?
“Look Leo, I know you regret your choice to have surgery, but even if I had something to do with you changing your mind, it was still your decision,” April tells Leo while he’s at physical therapy.
Leo explains to April that while she spent the last four months with him, he wasn’t there. And he’s not really ready to just pick back up.
“Even though I’m awake now, I’m not the guy you know. I do appreciate you being here but everything’s changed,” Leo tells her. “And this new version of me doesn’t feel like being friends . . . with anyone.”
Will April Be Ok?
However, we know that they’re in completely different places. Chasing Life EP, Patrick Sean Smith explained to HollywoodLife.com that Leo’s just not ready to jump back into anything and that it’s tough for April to get it: she’s been fantasizing about him for four months, thinking that they’ll be together when he wakes up.
Clearly that’s not the case.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Leo and April will ever be friends again? Will they actually date? Tune in to ABCFamily on Jan. 26 at 9PM to see!
