I think Jen is a little old for Rafe... hey can we get Jack to stay instead of Jennifer, please...
I would rather have Jack over Jennifer too. Jennifer is such a boring goody-goody character.
She is, kind of, but I feel like the show needs someone like that right now. For me, there are no strong rootable heroines on the show at the moment. I mean, who is there? Stephanie? Melanie? Chloe? Sami? No, no, no and definitely not. What the show is missing (among quite a few other things) is a character like Jennifer or Carrie.

This is, of course, not to say that I wouldn't love to have Jack back. I think it would be very interesting to see what he would be like without Jen around, for once. I've always felt it was such a mistake when the show chose to let Matt Ashford go when Missy Reeves decided to leave in 2006.
You and me both.

Imagine how much better that Steve and Kayla story in 2007 could've been if Jack were around too? The couple mentality that has permeated the show's brass (and many fans) is a big reason why the show struggles creatively.

I do agree that while Jennifer can be sickeningly sweet, she is the kind of character needed right now. We don't have anyone like that, at least not amongst the females. A few years ago, we had too many. Now, none.

I'm not against her returning in her own. My only issue is that they've broken up so many times and you just know they will end up together again down the road if they break up again. Also, Jennifer never seems to work out with any other love interests. She worked with Frankie but the writers forced that last time and it made Frankie look desperate and I bet they would do that again if they got the chance. Jennifer and Peter worked but he was a bad guy so that ruined it. Jack, on the other hand, has clicked with so many females. Greta, Sami, Billie...he seems to have more potential outside of Jennifer then Jennifer does outside of Jack.

I was under the impression that Matt would be available after Mama Mia wraps so, if he's amenable, bring him and Jen back. A few weeks ago on Facebook there was indication that Matt and Missy had been discussing returning together so I wouldn't be surprised, especially given the current state of things, if they do return. They could work well as supporting players. Have them work as reporters and solve mysteries. We don't need them involved in a triangle or quad.

I don't know if I buy this source as concrete but I do think the show is heading in this direction so whatever.
