While I totally accept the point that being raped is never going to be forgotten by Kayla, it is wrong for the writers to bring it up without also bringing up the letter that Kayla wrote in Jack's defence (when Harper died). The letter was integral to understanding Kayla's point of view- her pain and her forgiveness. The letter also was intended to show that Jack had changed in so many ways and his remorse and atonement. Jack's memory deserves his son to at least read the letter but the writers want to use the rape as a simple plot device to further JJ's anger when in actuality it was one of the best stories ever told (and acted) in soap history.
Yeah, I also fear that they'll basically simplify the whole dynamic between Jack and Kayla over this. I'm just not convinced yet that they won't at least attempt to explain that she forgave him. I'm also thinking having Abigail already know about the rape is meant to balance out the shock and anger JJ is about to feel, so she will be able to help him through it.
