Ah, Japril. The romance that started in calamity—never forget when April (Sarah Drew) left her fiancé standing at the altar to run off with Jackson (Jesse Williams)—and ended in tragedy. After eloping and discovering she was pregnant, the new couple discovered that their unborn child had a fatal condition, requiring April to give birth to their stillborn son, Samuel. They divorced in season 11, though a one-night stand brought a daughter, Harriet, in season 12. By the time Drew left the series in season 14, she was reunited with jilted beau Matthew (Justin Bruening), spontaneously marrying him with Jackson’s blessing.
However, Japril fans were given some home as April returned to Grey’s in season 17 to help wrap up Jackson’s journey. Specifically, after Jackson decided to move to Boston to lead the foundation in its fight for racial equity, a newly single April made the decision to move to the east coast with their daughter Harriet—leaving hope that these two may reunite in the future.
And, in the season 18 finale, the Grey’s creative team confirmed that Japril romantically reunited as they had the two doctors kiss in the episode.
