We Speak Out

ABC Soaps In Depth - - In Depth -

While a drunken Kristina spoke for a lot of impa-

tient view­ers when she asked Sam and Ja­son why they hadn’t fallen into bed yet, we un­der­stood both

her frus­tra­tion and what the show is (fi­nally!) do­ing with the pair. While it took way too long to get to this point, at last we can feel the long­ing be­tween the es­tranged su­per­cou­ple when­ever they cross paths. Bet­ter still, the show is play­ing not just the ro­mance be­tween Ja­son and Sam but the chal­lenge of rein­te­grat­ing him into the lives of their chil­dren.

Ja­son is es­sen­tially learn- ing to be a fa­ther, and it’s bring­ing out the softer side of him that we don’t nec­es­sar­ily as­so­ciate with the Mob en­forcer. Here’s hop­ing that mov­ing for­ward, we also ex­plore the chal­lenge —- so far largely ig­nored — of Ja­son fig­ur­ing out how he fits into the life of his other baby­mama, El­iz­a­beth, and their son, Jake.

“Dear Sam and Ja­son… get busy. Love, ev­ery­one.”

Love is… never hav­ing to say you’re sorry. But dude, there are lim­its!
