Warning: This article mentions suicide.

If you're a Grey's Anatomy fan, you've probably heard the news that Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw are leaving the show.

ABC

Drew has played April Kepner since Season 6 and Capshaw has played Arizona Robbins since Season 5. Both actors didn't have their contracts renewed after Season 14.

Most theories are pointing to April's untimely end with a (potentially drunk) car crash.

One Reddit user, Tharushi001, has written a pretty compelling case that April will get injured a crash, be taken to the hospital, have all the doctors working on her, and have Jackson declare his love just before she passes away.

There are also darker theories pointing towards April killing herself, or having an accidental overdose.

April's character has been spiralling lately and acting out of character, but fans are also worried about the show portraying such a serious mental health issue in a delicate way.

Most theories are pointing towards April dying, because that leaves more room for Jaggie.

ABC

While Jackson may declare his love to April in the end, it also means eventually Jaggie has a clearer path to be together (you know, despite the fact both their parents are married).

But also, fuck that, I will never let go of Japril. EVER. YOU HEAR ME??? WAS THAT MONTANA EPISODE FOR NOTHING?

As for Arizona, people are predicting she'll probably have a slightly happier exit.

ABC

Whether that's a reunion with Callie, or just moving to New York anyway, most fans are assuming she'll leave so Sofia can be closer to both her moms.
