Guys...something's going to happen, for better or for worse, between Jackson and April. Is this the episode that Japril fans have been dreading? Here's the Grey's Anatomy recap for this week's episode, "Unbreak My Heart:"

First, this is a weird episode, filled with flashback after flashback, much of what we already know and have seen in past episodes. This Grey's Anatomy recap covers the past year of the couple's life together. It begins here:

Jackson is running towards  church with flowers, as it is set up ready for a wedding. Ben is outside telling him that he is late. Jackson runs in and there is a brunette woman sitting in a chair in a wedding dress.

Flashback

Jackson and April sit with their attorney's to sign their divorce papers. She has tears in her eyes, and the flashback begins.

Flashback

Jackson serves her the divorce paper at work, and April is angry because he only went through four weeks of counseling before pulling the trigger.

Flashback

Jackson is working with a patient, Tatiana, who knows all about Jackson's intention to divorce April.

Flashback

Jackson is working on Mere when she was in the hospital after the attack. It is implied that they are happier and they slept together.

Flashback

Jackson and April are fighting in front of the hospital, and he tells her that he was thinking about divorce, the night they went to dinner to talk. (When he was staying on Bailey and Ben's couch) Instead, he tells her he wants to try to fix it.

Flashback

The first time they slept together after breaking up. It's unsurprisingly awkward when Jackson gets up and leaves the room.

Flashback

The first time they are in the apartment together after he moved out. They eat Chinese food, and things seem happy. (Any man who brings home a grocery bag full of fortune cookies is a good man.) They seem willing to try to work things out, they are joking around and talking about work...especially Jackson's work on Tatiana. Jackson asks her if they can really talk about their relationship and about getting a divorce. They fight about the loss of Samuel and about April running away to Jordan. She said she was dying and Jackson was coping well. He said he wasn't, he was staying strong for her. She felt as if she has no other choice if she was going to survive. He needed her and she left him. They have a moment of clarity, April asks how they make it stop, and they begin making out and undressing.

Flashback

Jackson attempts to go to Jordan with April, but he is too late, her plane is gone.

Flashback

April is packing to go back to Jordan, and she asks Jackson to go with her. He says he cannot just pick up and go, he has patients that depend on him.

Flashback

Jackson is working on Tatiana's face. It is scarred and not healing as it is supposed to. They talk about how Tatiana has been his patient for a long time and remembers when they lost the baby.

Flashback

April is in Jordan. She cannot get a signal to call Jackson.

Flashback

Jackson is getting stitches in his arm after hurting it while taking Samuel's crib apart. (This is really the first time we have seen his side of the pain.)

Flashback

April is just home from Jordan the first time. She is sitting in Samuel's room and Jackson volunteers to go to church with her if she wants to go. He tells her they can try again for another baby, and she gets furious that he would even suggest it.

Flashback

Jackson is at work and Tatiana is having a difficult time dealing with her face "melting away."

Flashback

We see Jackson and April when they first find out they are pregnant and tell their friends.

Flashback

Jackson and April have just gotten married and they are on their way to tell April's family that they eloped. From the start, they fight about religion.

Flashback

Tatiana is in the hospital and she is upset because she doesn't feel as if anyone would ever look at her like Jackson looks at April.

Flashback

Jackson and April get married, and we see them say their vows and we see them the night before the wedding.

Flashback

April is looking for a new wedding dress as hers has a stain, and Jackson makes an appointment to get married by a Justice of the Peace. April is a bit disappointed that it is not a religious ceremony. Jackson tells her that he will make some phone calls and find a minister.

Flashback

The stain came from ketchup from eating French fries in the car after they run away from April's wedding to Matthew.

Flashback

Jackson is freaking out about an upcoming facial reanimation surgery. He has never done it before. It is on Tatiana who had acid thrown onto her face. It is very bad, and Jackson asks for Dr. Sloane...who is on a plane to Idaho...

Flashback

April and Jackson are walking down the hall and they come across the spot where she found Dr. Reed...and then we see a series of very quick flashbacks going all the way back to the first day they met.

There is then a very fast flash forward of all of these moments until the scene is back in the board room with the lawyers. April asks him if he really wants to do this. He doesn't answer, and she picks up the pen and begins signing the papers. She stands up and walks out.

We then see him later that day with Tatiana, who is the brunette woman from the first scene. He is walking her down the aisle as she marries her fiancé, Timothy.

April is back at home and Arizona comes in with several bottles of wine/tequila/champagne. She asks what she wants to drink and April says nothing. Arizona says "You got divorced today and you don't want to drink? What's wrong with you, are you pregnant?"

April says, "According to the test I took today, I think I am."

OK...I have been writing this Grey's Anatomy recap for a long time...years, in fact...and this is the first episode where I have totally been thrown for a loop!  WHAT??????  PREGNANT???  OMG...just...join me next week so we can hear more about this....oh, Shonda, why do you do this to me?
