The reason that Lucky and Lulu finding out about Luke raping Laura worked so well on GH is that Luke had to live with the knowledge that his children might view him with disgust and be disappointed in who their father was. If they do bring up the rape of Kayla and have JJ play off the knowledge of that without Jack present, it's like switching the paternity of Parker without Philip being around. It fails because the most important layer/beat in that story isn't played out.....it's that reaction that matters the most....

Yes, the history of Jack raping Kayla should come to light and Jack's children should have to deal with this. On GH they have had all of Luke's children find out about his raping Laura. And yes, it would be much more dramatic with Jack alive and on canvas. HOWEVER we all know how much the current regime loves to prop Daniel so I fear that the angle of Daniel-is-so-much-better-than-Jack will have more of an emphasis than actually having JJ and Abigail finding out and dealing with the fact that their father raped their Aunt. Thus leading JJ to be more accepting of Dannifer.
