JaSam: Being Backwards
Since they decided to go with "the rape" -- (or they seem to be right now) it should have been played the opposite of what it was. JASON should have been the one to have found out Sam was indeed, raped and was carrying Franco's baby. That would have set up a conflict in HIM whether or not to tell Sam. Spinelli could have figured out the Heather Webber connection had Jason go confront her and then have the story unfold.
It would have been about SAM-- not Jason. Jason's reaction to all this is just sad. Makes me furious. How's Jason coping? Did Sam lie "too much"? If Jason knew first, you know he would have kept it from her as long as possible. Think of the advice he could have sought from Monica. How did she cope with raising HIM when he wasn't her own baby? He could have talked to Liz-- How did SHE cope with her rape? Maybe he could have eventually gone to Alexis and they could figure out how to tell Sam.
It would have been just as 'juicy' as far as the 'keeping the truth' from someone but with the tables turned, it turns into the woman's story, not the man's.
Jason would be struggling with the whole "twin" thing-- and then struggling with breaking the news to Sam about the DNA.
*sigh* Most soap Who's the Baby Daddy is told from the woman's point of view, it would have been great to have seen it turned on it's head in this one.
