That's a great point. Part of the reason Jack is such a saint in JJ's mind is because he is dead. So the discovery that the dead saint wasn't necessarily perfect is still a major storyline worth exploring even if Jack is not around.
The big issue will be how the show plays out the story once JJ learns the truth. If it is simply a vehicle to JJ hating his father and concluding that Daniel is "better" for Jennifer, that will be a failure. If it is a way for JJ to learn that people make mistakes and Jack did something horrible in the past and it took a lot of work for him to turn his life around and prove himself, I'm all for it.
What does bother me is that the show skipped over the entire storyline of Abby learning. When did that happen? Did it color her view of Jack? Do we have to go back over her interactions when Jack returned and try to figure out if her treatment was influenced by knowing that her dad was a rapist? And if she supposedly has known all along, shouldn't those bonding moments with Kayla have been a little awkward? And if Abby knows, does that means Stephanie knows about what happened as well? Those are huge issues for the Johnson family and it is confusing that Abby would already know when we have seen no sign of it in any other interaction with anyone else.
