Yeah. We observed Abby and Jack's relationship change. During his time in Afghanistan, Abby was angry with him for taking off and for staying out of touch. Of course, it was believed at that time that this was a deliberate choice on Jack's part, and akin to some of his history of leaving for reasons of his own.
I'm not disrespecting Jack when I say that. I'm looking at it from what would be Jennifer and Abby's POV. But how much more powerful would it have been if we the audience had had a chance to witness that Deveraux family pow-wow about what Jack did to Kayla all those years ago? Abby would have been upset, and her reasons for whatever attitude she showed Jack would be understandable. We also would have been witness to Jack's thoughts and reactions all those years after what was a defining moment in his life. If Steve and Kayla and Stephanie were also privy to the details, it would have been a pivotal storyline for everyone.
I'm not really disappointed in what's going on so far.
This set of scenes is the first time since she's returned where we've really gotten to witness Kayla being truly upset about something that happens in her own life. Usually she just listens to everyone else. She's the supportive friend who offers help and advice, but never really gets any concern from THEM.
I've welcomed this chance to see what she feels and thinks as she looks back on this incident, and on how she reacts to having been the one to spill the beans. I want how Adrienne's doing in this situation after JJ leaves too. It may be JJ's story...and I am interested in what happens to him...but it should also be their story, and not just as those concerned about JJ. I want to see what they think NOW as they look back. The whole ball of wax. The bad feelings, and the better ones...because they did get to the point where there were better ones. Just because memories come back and slap you in the face doesn't mean every good moment achieved is gone. It's gotta be a mixture of jumbled up feelings, I bet.
Honestly, this whole thing brings up a lot of ghosts for all of them.
