Thanks for the interview! Interesting read. I feel bad for the conditions these actors work under and I appreciate more and more their ability to play nuances in scenes.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep

I'm sure she'd feel the same way if Kayla had let it slip to her niece if she was the one in the dark.
Maybe so, but they did decide to make this a JJ story, not an Abby or a Stephanie one. Does anyone rally around Kayla?

I feel like the bummer is that Kayla was raped in the first place, and her having to keep it a secret for the rest of her life because her attacker was a family member of her husband's is a bummer, too.

Sure, I see what you're saying, but I'm just responding to what MBE said in the interview - she would not let something like that slip out to a child of the man that raped her, hypothetically speaking.

I don't think Kayla would want to tell any child that their father raped her no matter what, related or not. Most of Salem knows about it, so it's not like it's a big secret.
Well, I don't think Kayla would, either. I think it's established that Kayla and Jack had established a pretty decent civility between them. I use the term "civility" carefully, as I don't want to assign any real feelings for Jack for or against to Kayla, as it really depended on the writing team at the time <eyeroll>. Now I dunno how they're gonna play it this week, but I don't see this as a "secret" from Abby & JJ so much as they are children. Now they're teenage children, yes, but children, nonetheless, and I'm thinking it's up to their mother and father to discuss this with them. If they chose not to have done that, and I were Kayla in the situation and history we've got in canon, then I would have respected those wishes and not said anything. Kayla also, clearly, did not dwell on it; it wasn't a central part of her existence in the family. So, not sure it would have come up organically anyway. Then again, it is rape.

I can see how this is JJ's story and not Kayla's. I am over the moon that they're gonna address this with the actual actor involved! I wonder if their mother's rape will come into play at all. Anyway, I cannot freaking wait. But I think it's valid to say that a Kayla would not want to sully the image of their father by telling them about her rape of her own volition. Now that it's coming out, I can see where she chooses to be honest. But not having discussed it with them yet? Agree with that characterization of Kayla, it's not in her nature to have revealed that to them without cause, and I do see this as JJ's story and not a Jack character assassination. I'm looking really forward to seeing it.
