‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Fans Aren’t Happy About That Shocking Sex Scene: Here’s Why

Slowly Reconnecting

The ABC medical drama dropped hints throughout that episode that Jackson and April were going to get back together during their trip to Montana. Indeed, the couple were shown FaceTiming their daughter and collaborating to plan a surgery, with the procedure proving to be a success — in more ways than one.

The surgeons accomplished a tough operation that had never been done before on a young girl with a throat tumor. Even though they have been constantly bickering in recent episodes, they actually came together to save a life. “We did it,” Jackson told his ex after they teamed up to perform a risky operation on a young girl with a throat tumor.

The Hotel Heats Up

Following surgery, the two were about to part ways to rest in their separate hotel rooms. However, the small talk they exchanged in the hallway suggested they had another activity in mind for the evening.

“I’m just thinking about our track record in hotel rooms,” Jackson said as he approached his former wife. They started making out right there in the hallway, and Jackson didn’t waste time before carrying April back to his hotel room. The next morning, the two were cuddling on the hotel bed — sans clothes.

Sure, plenty of Grey’s fans were delighted by the twist, but others remain convinced that the reunion was a total mistake and that this won’t end well, given the pair’s rocky history. (The two doctors did not interact in the March 23 episode.)
