I completely agree. It's not JJ's fault that Jennifer is opting to lie to him and sneak around - that's all on Jennifer. (And the writers) My point is I'd much prefer they choose to give JJ and Jennifer angst by focusing on JJ's actions rather than Jennifer's because it ends up making both characters unsympathetic as far as I'm concerned.

I have mixed feelings about this. I am no fan of Dannifer...at all...but I'm also a little weary of JJ acting like a twit in regard to them. Rather than JJ 'catching' them in an intimate moment I'd much prefer to see the JJ/Jennifer angst be a result of Jennifer catching JJ at something. I guess I'm a little tired of watching JJ get away with being a spoiled, over indulged rich brat and his mother sneaking around and acting like the one who is doing something wrong. Like I said, I cringe thru most Dannifer scenes but regardless, JJ needs someone to put a foot up his surly ass.
The thing is Jennifer is feeding into it by lying to JJ about getting back with Daniel. If anyone is acting like a spoiled teenager it's her. She's a grown ass woman, who can sit her twit teenager down and tell him that regardless of her love for him she has a right to live her life with whatever man she chooses to live that life with and flat out admit that she wants to get back with Daniel because she loves him and wants to be with him. That she doesn't approve of choices that JJ has made but he's gone on to make them regardless of how much she disapproves, and since she is technically doing NOTHING wrong by being with Daniel, then she will be with him. Instead of having that much needed honest and open talk with her troubled teenage son, she has fed him a lie and told him that she will not be with Daniel and gone on to be with him behind his back. It's not helping either JJ or Dannifer to keep playing these games...but the one that is the adult is Jennifer and she's acting nothing like one.
