I know what you mean. Jack's being used as some kind of obstacle to Dannifer. Watch them fight their feelings because it's not right to move on so quickly after Jack! Just like Maggie had to fight her feelings for Victor - except Mickey died years before Maggie even thought of hooking up with Victor. Dudes, it's been like 2 months since Jack was squished into a pancake in the sub-basement! I just... :soapbox:

Can Maggie ever mind her own damn business? She's been pushing Daniel into Jennifer's panties since the day after Jack died. I'm so ready for her to go spend some quality time with Melanie.
IKR! They way she was pimping Jennifer to Daniel when he was Nicole was COMPLETELY out of character! Also, Dannifer are SO rushed! They'll be making love on Thanksgiving night, and on Horton Christmas, he'll put a ring on her ornament! Watch them marry by Valentine's Day! LOL
In today's, epi... Dan brings up Jack's name again. WTF is up with that? Dan is haunted and has more grief about Jack, than Jen has. Something is odd about to killing off a character that the TPTB didn't want to write for and then make him more prominent on screen in his death, to force a pairing that most hate. Jack is talked about more now than ever before and is seen at least 3x a week, via his photos pics, which all I can say, is very creepy and strange b/c it's a hell of a lot more, than we ever heard or saw of him, when he was actually on canvas. :shrug:
You're right, and I'm just going to come out and say that I'm sick of it! I am tired of Jack's name and image being brought up almost every single day.
Yes, I know that sounds contradictory, since I was one of the ones calling for some kind of decent mourning period for him. But this isn't it, folks. We get almost daily scenes of someone somewhere mentioning Jack or fondling his photograph, but it's all being done not to have his loved ones actually mourn and remember him but rather to further the Dannifer reunion. It's almost exactly what Higley/TomSell did in 2010 when they kept referring to Jack's absence as a way to put Dannifer together in the first place. Enough already!
I would like to call for a moratorium on having any mention of Jack under this writing regime ever. Heck, let the town of Salem have collective amnesia and forget Jack existed. Isn't that what they usually do when a character is offscreen/presumed dead? Carrie has only been mentioned once since she left town (when Rafe confessed to Sami). Austin not at all. And people have talked about Brady's "soulmate,' but we haven't heard Madison mentioned by name. Lexie is rarely if ever mentioned -- and only by Abe himself in fond remembrance.
Ugh, I hate, hate, hate how Jack's name and image are being used. It IS creepy and strange -- almost up there with Tom's Floating Head. That was disgusting, but at least he was only mostly seen by Alice who remembered him fondly. Jack's family is NOT mourning him or remembering him fondly. So please, Days, stop trying to pretend that they are.
