In the episode, Jesse‘s character Jackson Avery revealed in tonight’s episode that he will be moving to Boston to take over the Catherine Fox Foundation for his mom, but before he left, he went to see April (Sarah Drew), who is the mother of his child and asked her to move with him so he could still be close to their daughter.

In a joint Instagram live, Sarah and Jesse both admitted that the episode did have a spinoff vibe.

“I think it really lends itself to a spinoff,” he admitted during their hangout, and added that the potential spinoff could focus on Jackson and April exploring the “nuanced and interesting and hard to pin down” relationship.

He added, “I’d wanna watch that.”

Speaking to reporters earlier in the day, Sarah mused about the potential spinoff more.

“Yes! I mean, you guys, how cool would that show be?” she shared. “I gotta be honest. I’ve been on Twitter and Japril was, I think, trending worldwide all day. It was absolute insanity.”

Sarah added, “When I read the script, even just going on set to get my COVID test before we started shooting it, running into crew members and they were like, ‘Oh, we thought this was a spinoff.’ It feels like it’s setting up for a really great journey. And I was like, ‘I know.’ How amazing and needed is a show about racial justice in the medical field and inequity and equality. How amazing would that be?”

She is also hoping for an epic ending for the couple.

“They run off into the sunset!” she told People. “I have such hope, I have such tremendous hope that these two people will come back together.”
