JJ does sound like his father's son in many ways--the charm, the snark, the manipulative streak. But I've seen it mentioned on at least one other forum that his intro is reminiscent of Rebellious Teen Jennifer's: a precipitate exit from boarding school, anger and abandonment issues, hanging out with the wrong crowd, lashing out at authority figures. Granted, JJ's problems might be more serious than Jennifer's, given that this is 30 years later (despite Jen-Jen's attempts to relive her teen years with Daniel), but I'm reminded of the parents' curse: "I hope someday you have a kid who's just like you!"
In any case, I can't muster any sympathy for Jennifer. If she'd been as intent on taking care of JJ as she was on "protecting" a grown-ass man from the consequences of his own actions, she might have spotted her son's issues much sooner and possibly been able to head them off before they escalated. The more havoc JJ wreaks on his mother's perfect little soap bubble existence with Daniel, the more satisfied I'll be.
