Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: What Brings April Kepner Back to Town?

at .

It's almost time to welcome April Kepner back to Grey's Anatomy, you guys!

ABC on Tuesday dropped the first batch of photos for Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 14, as well as some plot details.

The episode is called "Look Up Child" and is set to air Thursday, May 6 at 9/8c.

April Returns to Town!

The good news for longtime fans is that it will bring Sarah Drew's April back into the fold, and based on the photos, she'll be helping Jackson through a difficult time.

The synopsis from ABC doesn't give much away, aside from the following:

Jackson pays a visit to his father that helps set him on the right path.

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you know the series drove a wedge between Jackson and April, one that ultimately ended their relationship.

When Sarah Drew was let go from the series a few years back, fans questioned how April and Jackson would continue to interact.

Thankfully, April survived her final episode, and it looks like she will be back to help Jackson.

With April getting married in her final arc as a series regular, it will be fun to check back in with her.

We're going to assume the relationship between her and her husband is going well, or Jackson would have probably mentioned it.

The photos also tease Richard and Catherine being involved, and given that the episode is a Jackson-centric hour, it makes sense.

If Jackson is truly on the lookout for answers, he probably turned to his mother first, before realizing the best way to go.

Catherine looks upset in one of the stills, and Richard will be there to comfort her.

Yes, their relationship imploded, but somehow they've managed to right the wrongs of the past and are in a much better place.

What are your thoughts on the plot details and photos?

Are you ready for this big return?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
