I still disagree. You canīt have longing without real obstacles. Whatīs exactly is Danniferīs obstacle? Jenniferīs past and children with Jack? Well, thatīs not gonna change. We saw this exact situation just two weeks ago and Dannifer had just as dramatic breakup after the kiss, yet they went right back to where they were just a week after. And thatīs because there is really nothing what keeps them truly apart. If Jennifer was 24/7 around Jack feeling terrible for him because what he went through and he eventually proposed foolishy believing it means she is falling for him again and she would feel too terrible to say no, then yes, Jack would be an interlopper. If he found some glitch in the divorce meaning he and Jen are still legally married he would be an interlopper. But at this point the story is still too underdeveloped to say. Jennifer is not showing any romantic feelings towards Jack so far while she is all over Dan but she and Daniel were in an active sexual relationship just two months ago. Itīs natural she still desires him. Whatever she feels or felt for Jack is deeply burried within her. They have to find some familiar ground first and start to trust each other again before anything else can happen.

They are seriously writing Jack as the interloper to Daniel and Jennifer. They really are. I don't know why I am surprised, this fucking show has done everything it possibly could to destroy Jack and Jennifer for the last 20 years and I know I shouldn't be surprised by anything anymore, but damn. I guess even a cynical bitch like me can be taken aback even after all the shit I've seen on this show all these years. Damn. This just sucks.
Exactly. I don't get it. They could have had a better story and not destroyed Jack and Jennifer. I'm ridiculously sad and irrationally angry at a total stranger (MR), which is insane, but I'm appalled to read her put it that way again and again, as though she's less familiar with Jack and Jennifer than I am. I do know that J/D have some popularity, but give Dan another cutesy woman in the right age range, and you've got the same thing. Jack and Jennifer were this different thing, and I can't understand destroying something difficult to replace with something easy to replace. Maybe that's not what's happening, but that's what it looks like to me and every time I think maybe not, MR gives another lovely interview.
I hate the story. but I donīt see Jack as interlopper. Interlopper would be actively prevent her from being with Daniel or there would be some serious reasons why she canīt do that. There is nothing which forces Jennifer to keep Jack in the game. All she has to do is to say "Sorry, Jack, but I really want to be with Daniel." Thatīs it. But she isnīt. They certainly donīt bother show us why so far but for some reason she is more willing to repeatedly hurt Daniel by wanting to continue the doubledating than tell Jack itīs over and he has to move on.
Jack's return has been about creating angst for the Dan/Jen relationship. That's the classic role of the interloper. He doesn't have to be scheming to keep them apart. His mere presence is enough. They've given Jennifer an out for not dumping Jack with the history and children BS while making it clear that her heart and passion are with Daniel. Now Daniel breaks up with her so the two of them can boo-hoo over their broken hearts and pine for each other while Jack looks like an ass trying to take advantage of the situation. And then Daniel is going to start thinking he has MG. Just another obstacle and more angst for Dan/Jen.
