Image: Grey's Anatomy Facebook page. April and Jackson? Wasn't it supposed to be April and Matthew?
If you live in America, this is already old news, however, for those of you wonderful readers living in Australia; you might still be a little shocked as to what Jackson did at April's wedding recently, as at the time of writing this.
Love and marriage does not completely make any sense. April and Matthew planned the perfect wedding together. April's sisters even came to town in Seattle to be part of the action, misunderstanding the nature of April's role as a busy trauma surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. April even felt embarrassed as she was scooting around the hospital on her wedding day getting prepared with her hairs in rollers. Matthew sees her, and acknowledges that she is beautiful, though their unexpected chance encounter in Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 12. On the other hand, April's self fulfilling prophecy must have been a stroke of bad luck. In this episode, April was also angry that Matthew was working on their wedding day.
They came clean with their previous partners, despite Matthew and Jackson being forced to work together on a previous episode once. This is where April blames having sex with Jackson (breaking her Christian values) for failing her boards the first time around.
The perfect wedding came with many twists. Arizona is upset with the way Callie has been trying to control her, yet they're sorting things out while buying a house and dealing with April's and Matthew's wedding presents. Why?
The wedding between April and Matthew did not happen. Matthew is shattered, and so is Stephanie. April is shocked and upset, and so is Jackson - yet they ended up getting married. Congratulations April and Jackson. They drive off together returning to a workplace with broken hearts and a "hostile work environment" on the back of some of this.
Like life, weddings do not go according to plan. I know what it is like to be a runaway bride, yet I did this before a wedding/the altar. Think twice about heading to the altar. Marrying someone is a massive commitment, and one in two marriages do end in divorce - although things don't have to be this way. There is no right or wrong, yet Jackson's announcement and true colours for loving April came out of the closet.
Jackson was not meant to be at April's wedding, but he showed up because April wanted him to be there. Weddings can be just like sending out invites to your 21st. You don't know who is going to turn up, or not. Be prepared for the unexpected, not that anyone should get hurt.
