What an excellent concept for a compelling, high drama storyline! And why is it that so-called "writers," who are paid for their craft, can't come up with better storyline ideas than the fans? :shrug:

Jen should have pushed Nicole, and that should have led to the baby's death. (While I would prefer that the baby had lived, if the show was determined to kill him, they should have written the story differently.) Then EJ's grief/revenge would have some teeth behind it. It would MEAN something. I would have wanted to see Nicole in full mama bear mode, planning her revenge as well. It could have led Jennifer to have some kind of mental breakdown, and to finally explore her fears about becoming like her mother, and Abby could be part of that story as well - along with reaching out to EJ and starting up something there. Sometimes good people make bad decisions and react in the heat of the moment - the consequences of that and dealing with it would be far more interesting to watch than the crap they're doing now. People should have been on Jennifer's side, since she's a Horton and all, then you could have their emotional reactions and fallout as they realized that Jennifer did it. She could have been put in a mental hospital for treatment (as the jury found her to be innocent because of a mental defect) and while recovering, she meets a mysterious, bandaged man with amnesia, and starts to fall in love with him (feeling torn because of Dr. Tan)...and the man turns out to be Jack, who has no memory of her or their children.
But this crap they're pulling now, I don't even want to read spoilers about it, let alone watch it play out on TV. I'm still livid that the Ejole baby was killed.
