“Grey’s Anatomy” is gong back in time! During episode 11 the hit ABC medical series will turn back the clock on April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson’s (Jesse Williams) relationship.
“The evolution of April and Jackson’s relationship is revealed through a series of flashbacks,” a synopsis for the upcoming Season 12 episode, titled "Unbreak My Heart," reveals. The description adds that viewers will even get the chance to see the very moment that the Grey Sloan couple first met.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Drew dished that although fans would get “little snippets” of where Jackson and April’s relationship stood in episode 9 and 10, episode 11 would be the big Japril-centric installment — one that would confirm their fate as a couple.
“You don’t really find out what really happened with April and Jackson until episode 11,” she said, noting how much fun it was to shoot the installment. “It’s one of those special episodes.”
Audiences received a sneak-peek look at what's to come in a promo video, which unveiled that the Grey Sloan surgeons will discuss their impending divorce on Thursday.
“When did you decide that you were done?” April questions Jackson after getting served at the hospital. Her husband reveals that he threw in the towel the moment she left for Jordan.
The summary adds that the storyline with simultaneously follow “the years-long progress of one of Jackson’s patients,” portrayed by “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star Maya Stojan. Debbie Allen will also reprise her role her Jackson's mother, Catherine, in episode 11. Here's hoping Mama Avery can knock some sense into these lovebirds.
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
