I believe there are other forces at work that are keeping Rafe and Jordan at snails pace.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Since I find Rafe to be a pretty useless character, putting Jordan in story with him and giving her almost no discernible personality is not going to make me care about her. Their "cutesy" scenes seem forced because even though she's been around for a while, she hasn't really been on screen that much. I don't know her, so I don't care about her.
In this show, she had nothing that defined her as Jordan. They could have brought a day player in to do what she did, and it wouldn't have made any difference to the scenes.
I agree. If they want to keep Rafe around (why I have no idea), then they should have gotten him out of the hospital and involved in some detective work and that's where he could meet some new love interest. I don't see where they can go with Jordan. The story is boring.
I don't find the story boring. I think it's interesting to actually see a character go through a trauma and then struggle through recovery. So many times they have shootings or surgeries and bam! the character is off and running as if nothing ever happened. I give them props for taking the time to actually give Rafe's rehab a more realistic touch. I'm also in favor of this hard nosed physical therapist coming in and working Rafe while trying to keep up a wall between them. Chrishell said Jordan is hiding a past and didn't come to town to find a man. Her focus is on her job and that's what's been shown. It's a good foundation.
It sounds as if the frustration is in the lack of progression for Jordan. I think as the story unfolds and we see more and more of Jordan's real personality and less of the clinical robot presented currently interest in her will increase. Knowing her back story will help viewers care about her. I'm willing to see where it goes because even though she hasn't been given much time and as blunt as Jordan has been, I feel the moments where they have had her connect with Rafe are genuine. I like their look and I like their chemistry as a pair.
It's possible and even beneficial to have more than 4 couples on the show.
Remember the days when there where multiples of stories and couples ebbing in and out. They were good.
Here's a thought. Pick up the speed for...
Rafe and Jordan,
Nicole and Eric,
Lucas and Autumn,
Stefano, Cecily, Kate
Victor and Maggie
Gabi and Nick / Cameron
Marlena and long distance John
Give them all mini storylines something independent to do other than concern themselves with the love lives of Sami and EJ, Daniel and Jennifer, Will and Sonny and Kristen and Brady.
