April and Stark?! Sarah Drew Speaks on Unexpected Grey's Anatomy Romance

at . Comments

It's probably safe to say that few Grey's Anatomy fans saw this one coming. Grey's Anatomy fans have seen Izzie get freaky with a ghost, too, so that's saying something.

After Dr. Stark (Peter MacNicol) awkwardly asked April out at the end of the last week's episode of the ABC drama, Sarah Drew says she was as shocked as viewers were.

But, she adds, this interesting new pair will make a lot more sense soon.

April and Dr. Stark

Raise your hand if you predicted this love connection. Anyone?

After the next new episode, which will jump forward a month from where we left off, "we’ve been on several dates at that point,” Drew tells EW this morning.

“She sees a side to Dr. Stark that he doesn’t show to anyone else at the hospital, and she finds that part endearing ... I think they enjoy the companionship.”

But it’s companionship that will no doubt come with a few wagging fingers, skepticism and commentary from viewers - not to mention April's fellow residents.

“You get an insight into what’s going on. It’s funny and a little sad and sweet,” she says. “But we have never done anything like this on Grey’s Anatomy."

"It’s usually gorgeous men like Jesse Williams taking his shirt off and getting it on in the on-call room. We haven’t really seen this kind of a thing before."

"I think it’s fun.”

Hmm. Thoughts on what she means by that? Here's what she doesn't mean:

“I’m almost positive she’s not losing her virginity by the end of the season. The latest I’ve heard from the writing room is that she’s going to hold on to it for some time,” she says. “I think they’re really planning to take care of that and make it really beautiful and really sweet and develop that story.”

Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
