While I don't disagree with what you're saying, if that sense of desperation is there for the writers at all, I don't think that it was there four months ago when these scenes were taped, and certainly not five-plus months ago, when the scenes were sketched out/written. And the spoilers are making it clear that Jennifer injures herself (as she did back in September, when she injured her hand by slamming it on her desk, warranting medical/amorous attention from Daniel). If they wanted to elicit sympathy from the viewers, wouldn't the writers have the accident be caused by a hit-and-run or something? I don't know, it just seems like they're making Jennifer look hapless and pathetic rather than sympathetic. And the juxtaposition of her latest self-inflicted accident with Chloe's return is another question mark in my mind.
It does seem like the writers are up to something, but maybe that's giving them too much credit. Maybe, as with the scarf, the twosie, and the unlocked doors, the writers just keep using the same old tired plot devices over and over again with little to no variation or rhyme or reason to them.
