Grey's Anatomy Review: Listen to Your Heart

at .  Updated at .

Grey's Anatomy is finally back!

Japril fans must have been thrilled to find out that April listened to her heart and actually chose Jackson. I know I should have just accepted it from the moment April ran out of the church but I couldn't stop thinking:

Poor Matthew! Poor Stephanie!

I was glad that Japril wasn't shoved down our throats too much as the two appeared to be on non-speaking terms at the hospital. Come to find out, they were just keeping their relationship marriage a secret. That's right! They got married. Go big, or go home, right?

As a Mapril fan, I always thought that April was much more tolerable with Matthew by her side. Surprisingly, I didn't hate seeing the newlyweds together. Now, how will their colleagues take the news? More importantly, how will Jackson's mom find out and react? I can't wait to see what she has to say. 

Side note: Do you wish the writers should have shown us what exactly happened in the barn? I'm honestly kind of happy they cut to the chase. Maybe I would think otherwise if I really cared about April's decision, but I just simply didn't care enough. 

On another note, I was excited to find out more about Derek and the POTUS storyline. However, it also left me a bit confused. So, not much was uncovered in the White House's investigation. Their only concern was questioning why Derek was sending $3,500 to a family for an incident that happened when he was a child. 

I wanted to find out more about his project with the POTUS. Also, how will it affect his promise to Meredith? Is she going to be able to continue with her research? How will taking on this new endeavor affect their marriage and family?

Elsewhere, Alex found peace when saying goodbye to his father. That happened after he punched the crap out of Ross. Alex's final scene with his father was utterly heartbreaking. Luckily, Jo was by Alex's side in the end. 

By the way, I've been rooting for Jolex forever but I'm definitely with her. That special moment outside the barn was not a proposal by any means. Come on, Alex!

Meanwhile, I don't get how buying a new home will solve all of Calzona's problems. The installment started off with Arizona sounding so sure that their marriage was over. Three weeks later and they're signing documents for a new home?! What?

Sure, Arizona explained her reasoning but I'm just not convinced that moving is the right fix for their troublesome marriage. 

Other Thoughts:

  • I snickered every time Bailey tried to find out more gossip and especially when she asked Ben for the scoop.
  • I laughed a little harder when Ben found out that he grabbed Tucker's lunch by mistake. The countless age jokes were kind of cute. I think I'm going to like having Ben around.
  • Seriously, the cat man really frightened me. I would have screamed like that little girl if I had awakened to see him so close to me as well. 
  • Is redemption even possible for Ross? I can't see it happening anytime soon. 
  • Don't forget to return early next week to chime in on our Grey's Anatomy Round Table.

Overall, Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 13 answered a number of questions with April's decision at the forefront. If tonight's return was any indication, the rest of this season is going to be just as strong and will keep us on our toes.

I, for one, am especially intrigued by the potential of Stephanie's (it has to be her, right?!) complaints to the board concerning sexual harassment and want to see how the doctors deal with the repercussions.

Were you surprised by April's choice?
