Early History Edit
Jackson and April start off as best friends and over the seasons they develop feelings for each other. Jackson famously states "I have feelings. I have a lot of 'em." April: About what? Jackson: You. About you, April. For you. April knows Jackson wakes up screaming at night because he has nightmares (she said this when she said she was a virgin). April is the only person Jackson lets himself be vulnerable with. She was his person when he had nobody else left. Jackson was the person April lost her virginity to and the person she left her fiancee at the alter for.
Japril is the only couple on Grey's Anatomy to have 2 stand alone episodes. The most viewed video on YouTube from Grey's is of the couple's bathroom scene.
Jackson and April showed us what it is like when two people become best friends after a tragedy, and when best friends turn into something more. Their clumsy relationship in on-call rooms, his stoic perseverance to let her get married, the storm inside of him when he saw the love of his life about to marry someone else. Then, a blissful marriage, she’s the one and i love our secret marriage bubble and a love so real and so profound I haven’t felt the same for a fictional couple since. Through weddings and child loss and divorces and child birth, they remained each other’s person.
Jackson and April are soul mates.
