With only 2 days until the winter finale of “Grey’s Anatomy” and April’s big day, nerves couldn’t be higher. Will she marry Matthew or won’t she? What will happen between Meredith and Cristina? Sarah Drew who places April Kepner dished with TV Fanatic on Dec. 10 about the upcoming episode and what fans can expect.
Sarah talked about how much it was getting to be the center of attention for episode 12. Not only did she get to have a fairytale wedding, her real life dad got to be the one to walk her down the aisle and give her away. She said of the moment, “So, that was really sweet to share that experience with him, too.”
Fans wonder if April will come unglued at the seams for her big day. Drew explained that we will not see a calm version of April this week. She’s going to have to deal with her three bridesmaids, all of whom tend to be fairly self-absorbed. The bride will be caught in the war zone that Meredith’s and Cristina’s friendship has become.
April will also be worrying about whether or not Jackson is going to show up. He is her best friend and she wants him there. He knows her better than anyone else. She mentioned we should watch for a particularly funny scene where April’s emotions kind of explode.
The burning question in fans’ minds is – Matthew or Jackson? Drew responds only with "it’s really hard to tell because both of them are really good for her in different ways."
She did say that both characters are good matches for April in different ways. It will all come down to what’s in people’s hearts there in the moment, according to Drew.
The final tease Drew shared was that the final five minutes of the episode will totally shock everyone. There are storylines unfolding at the hospital, mixed with scenes at the wedding. A bunch of things will all happen at the same time in those last five minutes. She warns, “Don’t go to the bathroom for the last five minutes. Don’t leave the room. If you miss a second of it, it’s going to be a problem.”
