When Jackson questioned how she would break the news to her spouse, Matthew (Justin Bruening), April stunned him with the news that the set had really broken up, which Matthew was dealing with his ailing sibling in Philadelphia.
This resulted in maybe the most unforgettable minute of the episode, as the previous couple held hands. “Fingers crossed for new horizons,” April stated, and Jackson duplicated it back to her. Ugh, these 2.
And if you were stating to yourself, “Wait, I wonder how Jackson is going to live in Boston and still be a key member of the show,” then you have actually gotten ahead people. Sure enough, a sneak peek of the Thursday, May 20 episode teased Jackson bidding goodbye to his associates, consisting of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo). Commence sobbing.
As the May 6 episode aired on the east coast, ABC verified to E! News that the May 20 episode will be Jackson’s last one as a primary cast member. In a declaration shown E! News, showrunner Krista Vernoff stated in part, “We will miss Jesse terribly and we will miss Jackson Avery—played to perfection for so many years.”
In a current interview with E! News, Sarah assured that Japril would take pleasure in a “beautiful” reunion “that will be very satisfying.” So far, we’d need to concur.
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
