How April Hinted at Her Relationship With Matthew WEEKS Ago on Grey’s Anatomy

This week was very traumatic for Grey’s Anatomy fans. In the penultimate episode of season 14, April is on the brink of death for quite some time. Horrified, we learn that she’s fallen into a hypothermic state after her ex, Matthew Taylor, gets in a car accident. She must have slipped while calling for help. Luckily, our favorite trusty doctors manage to save her life. Before we can even be like, “Wait, what?” in reaction to April and Matthew being in the same car, we get the confirmation: April and Matthew have been seeing each other. In spite of the fact that all “Japril” fans’ dreams have been permanently dashed, it’s still pretty sweet to see them reunite at the end of the episode.

If you found yourself blindsided by the revelation that they’re back together, I have a fun little bit of foreshadowing to share with you. April actually mentions her relationship with Matthew very casually a few episodes before this one. You probably remember the episode I’m referring to: as presentations for the surgical contest begin, Arizona unknowingly distributes weed cookies to a good portion of the hospital staff, and April is among the people who indulge. She gets sequestered in a room with Bailey, and the two loopy doctors spend a lot of time saying random things to each other. April casually mentions all the Harper Avery sexual harassment allegations.

Then she says this: “I have a secret, too! I’m seeing someone.”

Obviously, it’s so clear in retrospect that she’s talking about Matthew, especially since they have that sweet moment in the chapel during the previous episode. As for how April and Matthew’s reconciliation will tie in to April’s departure? Your guess is as good as ours.

Hooked on Netflix’s Safe? Here’s What We Know About a Second Season

Michael C. Hall has returned to TV with Netflix’s latest crime drama, Safe. The Dexter alum plays Tom, a widowed father of two teenage girls who is grieving the loss of his wife to cancer. But things take a turn when his older daughter goes missing and Tom suddenly finds himself learning all the secrets of those around him.

The series comes from the mind of prolific author Harlan Coben and is being produced as a joint venture between Netflix and Canal+, a premium cable channel in France that is airing the series on C8. You might think that Safe‘s airing on TV in France may give it better odds for renewal than a straight streaming show, but you’d be wrong. Coben tells Digital Spy that he’s not ruling out a second season, but it doesn’t seem likely.

“I don’t rule out a season two, but I’m not selling season two by not giving you the answers in season one,” says Coben, adding later, “I don’t think it would be fair to start a series where there’s a murder, and a girl goes missing, and this whole community clearly is blowing up with secrets . . . and then not give you all the answers. That’s not how I do a series. It’s fine for other people, but it’s just not how I work. If there’s a season two . . . well, I would doubt it.”

So there you have it. Looks like Safe is likely to be one and done on Netflix, though perhaps if it’s a hit, the streaming service could bring the show back anthology-style, with a new storyline and new characters that follow a similar format and structure of the first season. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
