April Kepner Appreciation Week - Day 1
↳ Underrated friendship → Arizona Robbins

None of us really saw that friendship coming, and then once we were in the closet shooting it, we were like, “Of course these two should be friends! Why have they not been friends yet?” They both have these sunny attitudes, but then they’ve both obviously been in dark places as well. But there’s something about the two of them: they’re positive, they can get excited about fun stuff, and so many of the doctors on our show are so dark and twisty, that it makes sense that these two would gravitate towards one another. Arizona would not roll her eyes at something peppy and fun that April would say, and vice versa. So it was a really fun discovery to kind of go, “Hey, let’s explore this friendship” - Sarah Drew

April Kepner Appreciation Week Day 1

Favorite Underrated Friendship

What’s sad is there’s so many to choose from cause in reality, all her friendships are underrated, lol.

My favorite though, where I was like, “YAAAASSSS” is her friendship with Arizona.

Even before they got drunk in the supply closet, the total shade she threw Callie’s way for telling donors her wife was dead was GOLD!

But them in the closet was priceless and really made me go, “why haven’t we seen this before?!?!?!?” They are both bubbly and giggly and (at least before) generally happy people.

I was glad to see Arizona there for April in the finale since I think she is uniquely qualified in what April is going through, plus it was nice seeing someone who genuinely cares for April. Outside of Jackson and Catherine, the numbers are scarce.

As a kid, I wondered if broken homes were where the broken people lived. It was silly but to this day, I still wonder… You can build a house out of anything, make it as strong as you want. But a home? A home is more fragile than that. A home is made of the people you fill it with. And people can be broken, sure. But any surgeon knows.. what’s broken can be mended, what’s hurt can be healed. That no matter how dark it gets, the sun’s gonna rise again.


When something big happens, something tragic, you freeze. You retreat into your happy bubble for what seems like a second, until you look up. And suddenly, you realise it’s a whole new year… How do you step back into the world? It’s scary. Time stood still and now it’s speeding by. You’re looking for a lifeboat, something to give you hope. But are you really ready to leave your happy little bubble and step back out into the big, blinding, bloody, terrible world? Are you ready to achieve the impossible?
