Grey’s Anatomy season 10 news: are April & Jackson back together?
Jan 9, 2014 | Grey's Anatomy | Can | No comments

When season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy resumes in 2014, fans will see who April Kepner chose to be with: paramedic Matthew or ex-boyfriend Jackson Avery.

It all came down to Jackson’s declaration of his love for April in the middle of her wedding to Matthew, which took place in show’s midseason finale. Speaking up before its too late, he professed his love for the bride in front of a room full of people.

“April, I love you, I always have. I love everything about you,” he told April. “Even the things I don’t like, I love. And I want you with me. I love you, and I think that you love me, too. Do you?”

April has never been able to fully let go of her feelings for Jackson and considering their history, many believe they belong together. However, she has no reason to doubt Matthew’s devotion to her and with Jackson, things have never been smooth. Going back to his is a risk she is likely to take. Show creator Shonda Rhimes would not make such a big reveal and not follow through with it.

One thing to remember is that Stephanie is still in the picture and works closely with the doctors. If April and Jackson decide to rekindle their romance, she might try to come in between them.

Grey’s Anatomy fans have been voicing their opinions, concerns and hopes for April and Jackson leading up to the show’s season 10 return in February. The majority says April should be with Jackson. Below are some of the conversations taking place on Twitter:

“I’m ready for greys to come back bc I need to know April kepner’s answer like now.”

“I’m all caught up on Greys Anatomy and if April doesn’t choose Jackson I will punch her in the face.”

“I honestly want April and Jackson to get back together.”

“Finally catching up on Grey’s. Is it bad I still like April and Jackson together? Cause I do. I also just like Jackson, A LOT.”

“But April and Jackson need to be together.”

“How can Jackson just stand up and call out April at her own wedding?!! Lool that is messed up!”

Grey’s Anatomy returns for the second half of season 10 on Thursday, Feb. 27 on ABC. Who do you think April belongs with?

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ shake-up: what’s next for Jackson and April?
Dec 18, 2013 | Grey's Anatomy | Can | No comments

“Grey’s Anatomy” returned with the emotionally-charged winter finale “Get Up, Stand Up” on Dec. 12.

Nobody writes couples better than Shonda Rhimes and company and this week’s tear-inducing installment brings some potentially huge shake-ups for some “Grey’s Anatomy” favorites.

Jackson and April

April’s (Sarah Drew) wedding day finally arrives and she literally bumps into Jackson (Jesse Williams) with big rollers in her hair and missing bridesmaids frustration. This is the moment that sets the wheels in motion for Jackson’s sweeping declaration of love at the end of the episode, just as April and Matthew (Justin Bruening) are about to say their vows.

Jackson wasn’t planning on going to the wedding, but when he sees the curler-clad bride-to-be she’s exasperated and asks if he’s going to be there. He asks her if she wants him to be there and she’s really emphatic in her “Of course!” reply. So, he agrees to come.

Later, he’s operating with Stephanie on a patient’s throat and the procedure could potentially affect his vocal chords. He and Stephanie wonder what he whispered in his wife’s ear before going into surgery and Stephanie says “I think he said he loved her.”

Jackson says, “Maybe. Say it loud and go from there” and we’re instantly taken back to what is one of the saddest episodes in series history: Mark Sloan’s death and his farewell pep talk to Jackson (some of us may still be crying).

He proceeds to tell her how Mark advised him to tell the person you love that you love them even if you’re scared it’ll cause problems or burn your life to the ground. This really sinks in and hits him when he sees April dressed in her wedding gown coming down the aisle.

It’s an incredibly romantic moment when Jackson stands up then sits down then stands up and boldly declares his love for April:

“April, I love you. I always have. I love everything about you. Even the things I don’t like, I love. And I want you with me. I love you, and I think that you love me too…. Do you?”

She turns from her handsome hubby-to-be, mouth agape in surprise. What is she going to say?

Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew have combustible chemistry and have made Jackson and April so lovable in spite of their flaws. The best relationships are derived from friendship and these two have loved each other for a long time without saying it. They understand each other and their chemistry is off-the-charts. They’ve been running from each other for months and this can’t be another Mark and Lexie tragedy (Sniff, sniff).

Simply put: Jackson and April belong together. They need the happily ever after.

Unfortunately, Matthew and Stephanie are collateral damage in the whole situation and that’s a shame because they’re both really nice. They just need to find other people to be nice with!

Overall, the mid-season “Grey’s Anatomy” finale brought many beautiful and emotional moments for all of our favorite couples. So many futures are hanging in the balance and the series return will undoubtedly provide answers to many of our burning questions. We’ll just have to wait and see which way love or lack thereof will affect the winds of change for our beloved band of Seattle docs.

“Grey’s Anatomy” returns in Flint on WJRT ABC12 on February 27, 2014 at 9 pm ET.

Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams talks Jackson’s bold move and lessons from Mark Sloan
Dec 15, 2013 | Grey's Anatomy | Can | No comments

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Thursday's midseason finale "Get Up, Stand Up" episode of Grey's Anatomy.]

The actor talks with THR about the midseason finale and what’s ahead for Jackson, Stephanie and April.

It was the closing few minutes of the episode that provided one of the hour’s biggest cliffhangers when, after apologizing to Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton), Jackson (Jesse Williams) interrupts April’s wedding to Matthew (Justin Bruening) to profess his love. “April, I love you, I always have. I love everything about you. Even the things I don’t like, I love. And I want you with me. I love you, and I think that you love me, too. Do you?” It comes after Jackson and Stephanie shared a sweet moment in the OR, when he shares a valuable lesson the late Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) taught him: “If you love somebody, you tell them, even if you’re scared it will cause problems or burn your life to the ground. Say it loud and go from there.”

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Williams to get the scoop on what’s next for the former (and potentially reunited) couple.

Where will the second half of the season pick up? Will there be a time jump or will we see the immediate aftermath of Jackson’s objection?
It’s going to be a combination of the two: you’ll see what happens and the impact it has on everyone. This is going to have a devastating affect on Stephanie. In situations where you have somebody being left at the altar, it’s usually the dashing bad guy versus the really honorable guy. Is she going to go with the jerk or is she going to go with the good guy? In this situation, Matthew and Stephanie are Jackson’s victims. They don’t deserve this and are both wonderful people who haven’t done anything wrong. Sometimes love gets in the way of what you’re supposed to do and who the person on paper is supposed to be, and that love by design and paint by numbers situation doesn’t really work. Sometimes there’s collateral damage, and Matthew and Stephanie are good examples of that.

You’ll see it came as a huge surprise for Jackson, and that it wasn’t premeditated. It was just a compulsion to blurt it out. Sometimes when you act impulsively, you have a “WTF did I just do” moment, and we’re going to see that. I cant say what April’s response is going to be, but I can say that Jackson is going to have a, “Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?” moment at some stage in the very near future. Anytime you think there’s solid ground, it turns out to be slippery.

After so many opportunities to get back together, why would Jackson object in the middle of the ceremony? What changed for him?
That’s been my question as we’ve been developing story. He has been in stages where he’s said to himself, “I’m over this, I’m moving on,” and you keep your legs moving so that you don’t have to stop and deal with it. It’s not conscious denial because he is trying to treat a sickness: “I’m having my soup, getting fresh air and moving on with my life.” At the wedding, sitting there is the first real moment of stillness for Jackson, where he realizes that this is not something that he will have to deal with in the future; it’s something he can’t talk himself out of. He’s had these opportunities — she presented it to him at the top of the season and at the end of last season — and he said no. It didn’t make sense on paper: it’s not healthy; they shouldn’t be together. But when they’re in the same room, chemistry is chemistry, desire is desire and nobody understands the other person better than Jackson and April do. It becomes this undeniable truth that Jackson was and April were both trying to heal themselves from it. They were both trying to paint by numbers and do it “right” — and they’ve never done it “right.” They rushed into this and did it wrong and were told that they shouldn’t be sleeping with their friend, shouldn’t be having expectations of the relationship. They were trying to follow the proper steps, and life is sloppier than that.

Where do they go from here? Could we see them try again since it seems Jackson has broken things off with Stephanie?
Stephanie is going to be hurting; you can’t bounce back from that. It’s public humiliation, an ambush and a stab in the back. I doubt that any of us would want to hear, “I didn’t meant to. I had no idea.” In many ways, it’s a selfish act, but without selfish acts, you don’t necessarily get what you want unless you ask for it. What’s interesting is that Jackson and April, as much as they seem to have been this couple for what felt like seasons, they’ve got this established connection. Technically, they’ve really never been together as a couple. They never dated, they never had the awkward first date, they never had doubts about meeting their families, they never got to have the get-to-know-you-romantically part of the equation. They thrust themselves together and skipped a few steps. What is Jackson proposing when he stands up there? It’s what they have to figure out: Do you want to go to lunch with me? Do we want to date again? Do you want to start the courtship process from scratch? Do we want to pick up where we left off? Do we want to get married ourselves? Is that way too much too soon? Do you want me to pay for the wedding? Should we use [the wedding] right now? There’s a million ways for it to go, but what it does shine a light on is what constitutes the metrics of love and an established relationship. Jackson and April have never been a couple. Jackson’s mom (Catherine, Debbie Allen) doesn’t know about it; April’s family doesn’t know about it. They were just two people sleeping together and people probably viewed it as a lusty, trivial thing, when I would suggest there’s as much chemistry between those two characters as any on the show.

What can you say of how April will respond to Jackson’s declaration? Will she be angry?
There are certainly victims in that scenario. Jackson certainly hurt Stephanie, but no matter what April says, the fact she’s standing there pausing and considering it and not shutting it down immediately — how is Matthew supposed to feel about that? Can she turn back and say, “We’re going to move on and keep this marriage ceremony going”? That might not be realistic for Matthew. It’s a complex and muddled ball of feelings here, and Jackson really threw a wrench in the whole thing.

How much of Jackson’s sudden change of heart is based on Mark’s “Say it loud and go from there” words of wisdom?
It was an accidental mirror that he put up in front of himself and an accidental reflection. It was a really interesting thing that Mark said, and it stuck with him and in the hours that follow. Jackson has been sitting in the pew and realizes, “That’s me that I’m talking about. This is one of those opportunities where you’re supposed to blurt something out and do something about it. Everybody else be damned, and you just have to take care of yourself.” Nothing about what Jackson did is premeditated — he wasn’t even going to go to the wedding. But when it happens, a lot of has to do with Mark being a big figure and mentor for him. He saw what happened when Mark waited until the last minute. Life is short and Jackson’s friend and mentor died before being able to patch things up with and go for broke with the woman that he loved (Chyler Leigh’s Lexie), even though that was painful for Jackson since it was his ex-girlfriend. He’s also been in Matthew and Stephanie’s shoes and pursued something with someone who has no business starting something new because they were in love with someone else. While Jackson was dating Lexie, he always saw her looking at Mark and Mark looking at her. When things aren’t over, it’s hard to put new bricks on a slippery foundation. He’s been on the side of that, which you’d think would make him more sensitive to that, but he also knows you have to take advantage of the now, and you don’t want to be like Mark. You don’t want to be in a situation where you have a lot of regrets on the table. So f— it, let’s just do it, and people will get over it. He’s also realizing the truth for the first time: that he never told April that he didn’t care for her or that he didn’t want to be with her. He said, “I don’t think you want it for the right reason, and you’re scared, and you’re marrying this guy because he’s terrific and not because he’s the guy for you at this moment.” There were a lot of caveats and comments but not a direct address to how they felt about each other. Jackson and April have never said, “I love you,” to each other until that moment when he stands up in the church. There’s something profound, spontaneous, romantic and authentic about that because it’s the first time either one of them say they love them to each other. It just happens to be at the wrong person’s wedding. Maybe it’s because they spent too much time trying to make their relationship perfect instead of just blurting it out and figuring out the rest later. It’s where Mark’s words were really helpful.

Jackson stood up twice. What was that about?
That represented how spontaneous and how reactionary this was for Jackson. It’s Jackson realizing he has to do something, and seeing the room go silent and the faces looking back at him when he understands the weight of what he could potentially be doing. Then taking a breath and reaffirming that this isn’t a choice; it’s something he has to do that’s actually happening. What he realizes when he sits down that first time is that he doesn’t have time to sit there and try to rationalize it — he’s been doing that to his own detriment for the past six months or two years or however long. [He has to] stand up and say the truth and figure out the rest later. It’s a physical illustration of self-censorship and catching himself and trying to be tactful and have some grace and wait for the right time, but there’s no more waiting and he has to do what he has to do.
