What Is “Look Up Child”? All About The Last Episode!

Look Up Child, a Jackson-centric episode in which a character is pulling a Callie and moving across the country in search of a new exciting job. This episode has taken a u-turn where we saw Jackson suddenly regretting the divorce. In the last episode, Jackson headed up to his father and stared at each other for a moment. After that, he arrived at April’s doorstep with a lot more flashbacks. Maybe he is missing her! Their daughter, Harriet has a fever. After many excuses, Jackson tends towards Harriet and suddenly the power cuts off. Jackson breaks the news that he is going to invest in healthcare and run the fox foundation to run the equity. He was going to shift to Boston and wanted April to move with him. 

Further, April didn’t want to leave her job and didn’t find Jackson as an administrator type. The next morning, they turned out differently, laughing about their bad timing with April saying, “We just never figured out how to want to do the same thing at the same time.” After all, this discussion about the life Jackson heads out by saying he is going to put in notice at Grey Sloan. 

ABC”s promo at the end says that the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy is a throwback special that has been packed with early show memories. They will give proper farewell in a new episode.
