The second hour of Grey’s Anatomy’s two-part Season 18 finale opened with Jackson Avery giving a eulogy for his mother Catherine.
Don’t worry, guys – it was just a fake-out. Catherine (Debbie Allen) was enjoying hearing her son say nice things about her while she was still alive,
receiving chemotherapy with April Kepner and granddaughter Harriet by her side. So while that was disconcerting and macabre,
fans did not have to wait long for the promised return of Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew. They did, however, have to wait to find out if the couple had reunited romantically.
In fact, it wasn’t until the end of the episode, which was jam-packed with emotion and drama and hospital shakeups,
that Jackson and April met up to leave the hospital, walking away hand in hand, and sharing a kiss when the elevator doors closed.
Japril fans rejoice! Many fans on social media were impatient to get a status update on the state of Japril, but by the end, it seemed like every minute was worth the wait
The last time we saw Jackson and April together, he had made the decision to move to Boston to run the Catherine Fox Foundation.
