Grey's Anatomy Sneak Peek: April and Jackson Have the Talk (and It's Brutal)

Tonight’s “Japril”-centric Grey’s Anatomy features a heart-wrenching sequence between the estranged couple that Sarah Drew recently likened to a “one-act play.” Well, grab a seat, because the curtain’s about to rise a few hours early!

As Drew teased to TVLine earlier this week, the flashback-heavy hour — which takes viewers on a tour of Jackson and April’s long and twisty relationship — zeroes in on what is arguably the pair’s core issue: the death of their son Samuel and April’s subsequent vanishing act.

As you can see in the above sneak peek, Jackson forces April to acknowledge the elephant at their dinner party. “We need to talk about getting a divorce,” he tells her. “We’re not even living together. This is the first substantial conversation we’ve had in, what, months?”

April quickly counters that she “wants to work on things” whereas he “just want to end them.”

The conversation then shifts to Samuel and, from there, things go downhill fast.

Press PLAY above and watch the first two minutes of the “one-act play” at the center of tonight’s big ‘Japril’ episode, and then hit the comments with your thoughts!

    WOW.. this is gonna be intense but Im glad we’re FINALLY getting to see them talk about this. So much of their relationship happened off screen that we didnt get a chance to see them even try to hash things out. They’re both right in their stance, which makes it so difficult and which is why i REALLY hope they work it out. They deserve to.

      I think Jackson is a selfish baby exacting revenge at april for dealing with things in the only way she could. I think the fool never stopped loving her (with all he did to win her), but he’s just a poutey baby angry with her. I also think april didn’t tell him she was pregnant because she asked him: “are you sure about this”? at the divorce signing and he remained steadfast. also I think that Aprils afraid about another devastating pregnancy with she fought for and suffered about worse than jackson’

    This is going to be good, hopefully they’ll remain friends after the divorce, only if april decides to grow up.

    I’ve been looking forward to this episode all week! Really hope April and Jackson can work things out, they’re my fave Greys couple.

    April selfishly deserted Jackson at a time when he was hurting, likely about as much as she was. Then she poured salt in that wound by deserting him again. The only thing he could count on from her is that she would probably leave anytime the going got tough. He would be a total fool to take her back.

    He wanted her for a long time in fact he wanted the whole damn package, if I remember correctly. I hope they work things out because they are a breathe of fresh air. I hope Shonda knows that.

    I’ve already stopped watching How to get away with murder because it’s gotten so weird and after watching Grey’s tonight I think it’s more of the same.
