Oh, I totally agree. It should be a conflict. Like you pointed out, Stephanie should have had problems with her Uncle Jack, and maybe with Abby just because of what she learned. Abby should have been torn up over it - much like Jack had his issues with Harper being the way he was, how would it affect Abby? It could've been great.

I'm no Ejami fan (due 100% to Sami being part of that pairing), but I guess I can't see how Johnny learning the truth will change his feelings for his father. Because Sami obviously got over it - she's slept with EJ multiple times since then, has dated him, gotten engaged to him, has/had/will have a relationship with him. I think the show's gone out of its way to show us that Sami doesn't feel like it was rape. Maybe she might have at one time, but she's over it.
Didn't Will know the truth? It didn't stop him from having a relationship with EJ (and becoming his lackey).
It will be glossed over and/or forgotten. The show has decided it wants EJ and Sami to have relationship possibilities, so that part of their history will be left by the wayside.
While I agree, I think this is a major problem the show has in general. I'd still like to see Abby and Stephanie find out about Jack and Kayla. That's good conflict and good, layered story. Having everyone just get over everything all the time is what kills the show for me.
I do think there should be fallout someday from Ejami and the twins' conception, I just don't think there will be. The show likes to sweep things under the rug, not realizing this conflict is what drives soaps in general. There should be repercussions for the upcoming generation over the sins of their fathers.
