Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April (Sarah Drew) may be featured together in new "Grey's Anatomy" Season 14 photos, but it doesn't seem to be in a romantic way. The characters appear to share concern for a patient. Still! It's something. (And it's not something Jaggie.)
At least Harriet's parents are the focus of ABC's promotion for Season 14, Episode 10, titled "Personal Jesus." Here's the synopsis for the January 25 episode:
"A young boy is admitted to Grey Sloan Memorial and his case has a profound impact on the doctors. Meanwhile, April is faced with a surprising patient and Jo continues to deal with her estranged husband."
Kevin McKidd (Owen) directed the winter 2017 finale back in November; he teased the Jo/Paul Stadler domestic abuse situation to Entertainment Weekly, previewing both the January 18 and January 25 hours:
"The next two episodes get to a very dark and intense place, but it deals with it and kind of resolves the whole story in a beautiful and redemptive way. People step up for Jo because everyone loves Jo. But it's interesting because Paul is a kind of like a conman and he has incredible skills of persuasion, so there are twists and turns along that road where people start going, 'Wait, his version of things seem kind of plausible,' so it's really interesting depicting and telling that story of somebody who is a deeply manipulative person."
The January 18 winter premiere changed its title to a phone number as part of that storyline. It was also just revealed, via TVLine, that Bethany Joy Lenz's character featured in that episode, Jenny, is actually Paul Stadler's new fiancée. Lucky gal.
In terms of January 25's Episode 10, though, it looks like April has a storyline with a "surprising patient." Is Jackson involved in that? They are both featured in the "Personal Jesus" photos:
Most of those are different angles of the same scene. Are April and Jackson caring for the same young boy? Why are the police there? Everyone looks so concerned, but they're also standing back. Was the boy attacked and the officer is asking him what happened?
At least Jackson and April are together here in Episode 10, which may give some hope to Japril fans who were left concerned by the more flirtatious looking Jackson/Maggie photos for Episode 9. (Weird that there's only one new photo of Jo and she looks happy. What is that about?)
Episode 11, which airs February 1, is reportedly called "(Don't Fear) the Reaper." Don't forget that, at some point ahead, we'll be getting a young Alex backstory, among perhaps some other flashback intel.
"Grey's Anatomy" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
