Are you ready for Japril to get some alone time in Montana? "Grey's Anatomy" star Sarah Drew told Moviefone that Season 13's April and Jackson (Jesse Williams) standalone episode would be "pivotal for the two of them, individually and also as a pair," and now we have more details and images to go with the tease.
Episode 16, "Who Is He (And What Is He To You)?" airs Thursday, March 16 at 8 p.m. on ABC. Here's the synopsis:
"Dr. Jackson Avery and Dr. April Kepner travel to Montana in order to perform a complicated surgery on a young patient, but Jackson's mind is elsewhere, and April is forced to step up and get him back on track."
The episode was directed by Kevin McKidd (Dr. Owen Hunt), and both he and executive producer Debbie Allen (Dr. Catherine Avery) were featured in some of the behind-the-scenes photos ABC shared to promote the episode:
What's on Jackson's mind? He does look lost in thought, especially in that closeup photo.
Sarah Drew told Moviefone the trip to Montana is for a throat transplant case:
"But it's a really incredible opportunity for them to be kind of still and have to face one another with nothing else distracting them out of the normal environment. And we're really, really proud of it. Kevin McKidd directed it. It's very different, tonally, than a lot of the other episodes. There's a lot of quiet space and stillness. It's not like frantic and moving super-fast. And it's really lovely."
Before we get to this very lovely-sounding episode, we still have Episode 15, "Civil War," which airs March 9. (There is no episode on Thursday, March 2.) Here are more details on "Civil War."
