It will be an intense week for Jackson as he will stand up against his own mother and Dr. Eliza Minnick in this week’s Grey’s Anatomy season 13 episode 15.
Amidst his colleagues’ disapproval of Minnick’s (Marika Dominczyk) new residency program policies, Jackson (Jesse Williams) will finally take a stand. It seems like April’s (Sarah Drew) husband will be declaring war against his mother Catherine (Debbie Allen) and her protégée.
After Alex (Justin Chambers) was accused of assault, Catherine decided it was not Alex’s fault but rather it is the way the doctors in the hospital were trained. She then persuaded Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) to bring in a new residency director, which forced Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) to step down.
The residents became unsettled since then. The medical staff is not happy with Minnick’s policies and some rally behind Webber. The doctors turned against each other.
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) also got suspended after she refused to work with Minnick. Now, Jackson can’t take it anymore.
In a teaser for episode 15 titled Civil War, Jackson is seen confronting his mother about Minnick and what is happening at the Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital. Catherine believes that Minnick is doing a great job. However, Jackson insists that he had enough of all the trouble in the hospital.
Jackson stresses that Catherine already broke that rule when she persuaded Bailey to hire Minnick. He reminds her mother that he is the voice of the foundation. Therefore, he has the final say on what should be done in Grey-Sloan.
Catherine tells him that the foundation only guides and oversees things, and they do not interfere in the hospital affairs. Jackson, however, points out to Catherine that she had already interfered. He then warns his mother that he will now use the position that she forced him to take to bring back Webber and kick out Minnick.
“I will be making the decision from now on … I’m gonna get Richard bring back and Minnick out. I am going over your head,” Jackson says to Catherine.
This is not the first time that Jackson challenged his mother or went against the foundation.
