What the heck JUST HAPPENED?! Not only did Jackson and April actually sign their divorce papers on the Feb. 25 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ but she then dropped a huge bombshell that changed everything we thought we knew. Shonda Rhimes never ceases to amaze us.
Oh April. We’re liking you more and more. Remember when Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) said that in a Season 7 episode of Grey’s Anatomy? Well, that’s exactly how we felt by the time we finished watching the Feb. 25 episode, which was solely dedicated to Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April’s (Sarah Drew) relationship — from start to finish.
In a series of flashbacks and moments we never saw play out on screen, we learned a lot of about Jackson and April’s relationship. For starters, they often had a lot of fights about religion, and never agreed on anything. “We have the same exact fight over and over again,” he argued at one point. April wondered if “maybe I didn’t know who I was marrying.” On a positive note, however, we learned they had sex the night before their wedding — something April never wanted to do, but she just couldn’t resist Jackson’s hot body. And we can’t really blame her. Also, after their son’s demise, April invited Jackson to go to Jordan with her, and he almost did until he missed his flight.
We were also taken on a path down memory lane, during which we saw Jackson and April revisit that back room where Reed got shot, and the moment when they met at Mercy West Hospital. (Even Percy made a cameo!) But despite all the good times we were presented with, Jackson still served April with divorce papers. Before signing, she looked at him in hopes he’d stop her, but he didn’t. So, she signed them and that was that. At least, that is until she went home and Arizona (Kate Capshaw) brought some wine over to cheer her up. And when Arizona asked her why she hadn’t already been drinking, April told Arizona that she’s pregnant again. Uh oh.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Jackson and April get back together? Should she have told him about her pregnancy before they signed divorce papers? Tell us below.
