Knowing that the hammer is coming does not make it any easier – viewers know that both Sarah Drew (aka April Kepner) and Jessica Capshaw (this is Arizona Robbins) Gray's Anatomy leave. It was announced a long time ago and it still stands out. And like everything else on Gray's Anatomy their fates are out of control, and it's so hard to say goodbye. Well, there's a big clue to how April leaves the show – April will die on Gray's Anatomy when an episode summary has something to say.
Networks send press releases a few weeks before a series of a show is broadcast, and editors, authors, and other media know exactly what's happening on the track. This is common practice. And they are usually kinda vague, because there can not be too many spoilers, otherwise nobody will be watched. But the press release for the episode of May 1
Let's break that up. We know that Arizona and April are definitely leaving the show, so we say that the part "serious injury" refers to them. That's easy! Now it can not be Arizona because the synopsis says she's going to talk to Geena Davis every episode, and if it were Arizona in the accident, she would not call her name later. You read me loud and clear? Next, there are no more big goodbyes for Gray's Anatomy at the end of season 14 – unless something happens and it's a big surprise – so April must be a serious injury. And since this is the penultimate episode of the season, I suspect that April will meet their final destiny in the final episode and finish Season 14. April will buy the farm she came from, which is shit, because that means she can never come back as a guest star. Unless Gray's Anatomy wants a ghost Denny Ding again, but I hope not. [Arizona] As far as Arizona goes, she could move to New York City with Sofia – that's the assumption for her situation. Sofia misses her other mother, Callie, and she misses her friends and her New York school. She probably misses the big, soft pretzels from the merchants outside the park and also waits for everything – at least I know if I leave the city too long. Other option? Arizona brings Sofia to New York and then travels with Carina back to Italy to live her best Under The Tuscan Sun Life. These are both quality options.
It was a real shock when the news of their departure came. Gray's Anatomy Showrunner Krista Vernoff said in a statement:
"The characters of Arizona and April are permanently woven into the fabric of Gray's Anatomy thanks to the exceptional work. woven by Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew. As a writer, our job is to follow the stories they want to go to, and sometimes that means we say goodbye to the characters we love, it was a joy and a privilege "Working with these phenomenally talented actresses."
Uh, why not, Krista? Show Creator Shonda Rhimes repeated Vernoff's feelings and said, "It's always hard for me to say goodbye to my characters," Rhimes said. "Both Arizona Robbins and April Kepner are not only popular but also iconic … I'll be forever grateful to Jessica and Sarah for bringing these characters to life with such a vivid performance and inspiring women around the world." It's Just So Sad There are so many other characters (cough Owen Coughing Amelia) who should leave the show first! And it's sad that April is likely to bite the big one on her last appearance Gray's Anatomy . I hope I am wrong, but this press release gives a great indication of the possible fate of April.
