I feel a little robbed that we didn't get to see Stephanie and Abby find out, and how that might've impacted their cousinly relationship and the dynamic within the bigger family uni: Kayla, Steve, Jack, jennifer. I'm glad we're seeing it now with JJ, but so much more drama was possible, and its unfortunate that it was never pursued.

I'm glad they're including Adrienne's reactions too. I'm waiting for some scenes where Jennifer, Kayla, and Adrienne come together to discuss this. It's such a complicated situation...so deeply painful and difficult a topic for each of them, but who better to understand all those feelings than each other?
I wanted to see Abby find out, but I guess ... I can see that it would conveniently "explain" some changes in the Abby-Jack dynamic that some viewers found jarring (she used to be his #1 cheerleader but later less so ... again, better for on screen drama but since the change happened anyway I can see how it would explain it retroactively). But Stephanie's still left and as bizarre as it is that she doesn't know, at least it leaves the door open for drama. I only fear that any reveals coming out of this whole connected family would leave things feeling redundant. Rape was/is used so irresponsibly on daytime, I really hated it when Stephanie was raped and just tuned out.

But I think it would be really interesting to see Abby and Stephanie as close cousins and see what this did to them. I remember when Chelsea was on Abby was kinda torn between Stephanie and her, but I still felt that they were on good terms generally. I don't remember everything, my brain probably feels like it's better to devote its memory space to things other than DAYS.
