We are just three episodes away from the Season 8 finale of Grey’s Anatomy, so naturally things are all hush-hush about the fate of our favorite Seattle Grace residents.

Thankfully, one hunky GA star, Jesse Williams (Jackson), is giving us a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ (via TV Guide) on what we can expect from some of the biggest plotlines of the season  — including this Thursday’s big medical boards ep, “Let the Bad Times Roll.”

Here are some highlights from his interview with TV Guide:

On how one of the residents failing the boards will affect the SG crew: “It's going to affect them all a lot. I think it's scary. It's a reality check, and it's also something that could happen to anybody. Never mind that there's personal connections to people, it certainly matters because it cannot go unnoticed.”

On Jackson and April’s post-hookup fallout: “Jackson, first and foremost, is her friend and sometimes he's her protector. That's one thing that makes it really unique and interesting about the beginning of this relationship... But then there's also how this plays out if we are still going to be friends. What if we go even further and become a romantic thing? Where are my religious beliefs? Does that matter? Are they in conflict with yours? There are many ways that this can work beautifully, and I think that we will also see many ways that this can be doomed.”

On Lexie and Mark’s romantic future — and how Jackson fits in: “He cares about Mark, he like's their relationship. He cares about Lexie. He put himself out there, and he got burned. It doesn't seem like he's trying to resent her for that... But when you get burned maybe that had something to do with why he's not running away right away from being around April. Because at least he knows that he can trust her, and that she will protect him.”
