Well Sami seems to have been modeled after Eve Donovan, so it makes sense that Jeannie Theresa would be similar.|
My issue with Theresa is that we haven't seen much yet that would make her likeable. It would help to have more family connections or someone with whom Jeannie Theresa could show a little vulnerability (and not be desperate or manipulative). For any type of "new leaf" to be believable, there needs to be something in the character to build on. I had hoped Jeannie Theresa would form a bond with JJ that gave them both an outlet to explore how they feel about their families. It would have been more a friend/sibling bond than anything romantic, but it would have given the character the sounding board she desperately needs. Letting us see why Jeannie Theresa acts like she does would give her dimension and make her more likable.
Hopefully, the Shane and Kim stuff will help, but it is going to be over so quick that I fear we will jump directly into high drama and a lot of conflict. So there won't be much build that makes us care about their relationship and then it will be over and done with, most likely with little follow-through unless we get some returns.
