The two certainly didn’t get back together on the ABC medical drama’s Thursday, November 3, episode, but you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise, based on the flurry of tweets that popped up throughout the episode about the on-off pair’s sexual tension. And yes, we are right there with those Twitter users on this topic.

Swiping right

Viewers first found out about April’s new dating-app habit when Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) pointed out that her phone would not stop beeping with notifications of new matches. This development appeared to crush dreams of a Japril future — but uh, only for a moment.

Delete the app

When Jackson found out April was going on a Tinder date, he seemed completely shocked at first. Then April totally called him out for having an account, too, because she saw his profile on the app but assured him she swiped left. Harsh.

Fans got all the information they needed about what the future holds for the recently divorced couple when April cut shot her not-exactly-torrid night out. She bonded with Jackson about how weird dating was, and they cozied up on the couch over a plate of nachos. We certainly noticed the melancholic look in his eyes as he weighed in, and that glimmer of hope was all fans needed to head to Twittter and share their many, many thoughts about the pair’s potentially sexy future together.

Check out the fan tweets below and let us know if Japril reconciling is a foregone conclusion.

Grey’s Anatomy airs on ABC Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET.
