The finale of last season dropped the bomb about April and Jackson having a baby together. The next question, however, is whether or not that will prevent their divorce from happening. Unfortunately, spoilers for Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 are silent on this issue.
However, that doesn’t stave off speculations as to the status of the relationship between April and Jackson. “The couple is no longer together, and their divorce papers are almost finalized. Even then, Jackson and April have a tethering bond holding them together, which is the baby,” said Movie News Guide.
But then again, there’s Catherine who’s determined to break up the two, which further complicates the relationship between April and Jackson.
Meanwhile, executive producer Shonda Rhimes teased Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 spoilers in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Although she didn’t discuss any details, the series boss, however, gave a hint of what fans can expect in the overall theme going forward. In the interview, she was talking about Scandal but she couldn’t avoid drawing comparisons between the two ABC shows.
“There’s an optimism that exists in the work now. I think it’s especially true in Grey’s [Anatomy],” she said. “On Grey’s, there’s definitely a sense of optimism.”
Going by that statement, there’s a good chance that Jackson and April may indeed try saving their relationship. After all, there’s nothing more optimistic than having a baby heal fractured hearts.
Meanwhile, Jesse Williams teased more Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 spoilers in a talk with TVLine where he delved further into the relationship between Jackson and April. He said that all is not lost for the couple even amid the disagreements between them and the filing for divorce.
“I think, as long as they’re alive, they’re going to have hope, because they care deeply about each other,” he said, although he didn’t say anything about how the baby will factor into the relationship.
