With a large ensemble cast like Grey’s Anatomy sometimes it takes time for a character to be spotlighted and for that character to shine. This seems to have happened with Jesse Williams.
Jesse Williams joined the cast as Dr Jackson Avery In season 6 when Mercy West merged with Seattle Grace. We learned he was an Avery. Born to a very elite medical family his grandfather’s award the Harper Avery is sought after by the medical profession. Jackson is tired of being judged for his family and also judged on his model good looks.
His journey has not been smooth by any means he lost most of his fellow classmates to a crazed gunman. His friend and mentor Dr Sloan died. However what attracted most viewers’ attention was the love story that developed between him and character Dr April Kepner played by Sarah Drew.
From their brief fling to love affair to a dramatic scene stopping moment when he crashes her wedding and they run off together and get married. Fans have followed the love story of JApril until it shattered after the death of their child.
This month in Episode 11 of season 12 titled Unbreak My Heart. We are told the story as if watching a video which is fast forwarded then rewound. Both actors were amazing, Jesse’s performance from his empathy while dealing with a patient to his sheer frustration at April who doesn’t seem to realize he was hurting too. She ran away and when he needed her she wasn’t there. They can’t seem to repair their relationship. He has asked for a divorce but they have a brief lapse and sleep together (which we know results in an unexpected pregnancy).
The story and how it is portrayed, highlights what is often forgotten with the loss of a child the fathers hurt as well. They have to be the man and the strong one which you see him trying desperately to be for April but cracking instead which ends in rage and smashing up the baby’s room. All credit is due to Jesse for taking us on his half of this journey.
