If you play a romantic couple on “Grey’s Anatomy,” the great news is that you’re going to be happy at least at one point. However, the bad news is that this said happiness could be very fleeting. At some point something will probably happen to send the relationship careening into a ravine, and you have to figure out whether or not it is possible to eventually climb your way out of it.
Based on what Sarah Drew had to say in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, you are at least going to learn more of what is going to happen to April and Jackson, our latest dysfunctional-couple-of-the-moment, at some point early on when season 12 returns. However, it will not happen during the winter premiere on February 11:
“You don’t really find out what really happened with April and Jackson until episode 11 … You get little snippets in 9 and 10, but 11 is a big one. It was so much fun to shoot, an epic journey and every actor’s dream, basically … As long as [the two characters are] alive, there is always hope. No matter what, they really, desperately love one another. They’re in a really rough spot, but there is always hope.”
So is that a significant reason to smile? If nothing else, it’s not a reason to cry, and that’s something. These characters will more than likely continue to have their ups and downs, and we’ll see what happens on the other side. At least both continue to work together, so they’re not going to be able to drift too far … right? This is the sort of thing we’ve told ourselves in the past to make us feel better about Owen / Cristina and Callie / Arizona, even though nothing at all happened there.
