Yes. That is pissing me off a lot about this story. That all these other people who have brainwashed by Stefano (pretty much everyone in Salem) seem to have so little sympathy for Jawn right now. Even if this incarnation of Jawn is so different and they're suspicious of his DiMera business ventures, I just find it hard to believe Hope would be this cold toward him when they were always such good friends. And especially when it was a year ago he was coming out of a coma and a half-year ago everyone thought he was dead? It's just ridiculous that Jawn, as weird as he is, would be THIS ostracized IMO. And as ridiculous as it is for Marlena to trust Phillip over Jawn, it's just as much or moreso for Bope to be that way given all the things that Phillip did to Shawn in his pursuit of Belle and Claire and given Bo's own mistrust of Victor.

And come to think of it... I know Victor was pissed at what Phillip did while he was gone, but did the show make any sort of connection between Victor's concern for Brady and his concern at what Phillip was doing to Brady's dad? I missed a lot last week.
For Victor, I think he is justifying things because this isn't John. I think that is the difference for alot of people. I think they all were trying early on, especially when he saved their lives during the plane crash but, since then, they see him becoming Dimera-like. They see him involved with shady people and pushing loved ones away like Marlena, which pisses people off around him too. Then this drug thing happens and the thing is they have no idea what he is capable of. They know he was programmed to kill and that concerns them. This isn't like previous brainwashing. There is no telling what he could do and that is very much in keeping with the beginning of the Pawn story in 1986 and I think that is the aspect of this story that justifies the reactions of the people around him. This is the ultimate Pawn, afterall. This is Stefano's prized soldier and that is the scariest part of all this.

Victor always loved John for what he did for Isabella but this John is a loose cannon who initiated this battle for the docks and I think Victor sees that as a betrayal. John is playing dirty so they play dirty. It's classic Victor.

I actually think Hope has been fine to him. I think she's been better then most have been. Sami has also been good to him too.
