Quote asiangal: I said it before and I will say it again.
IMO, RC is re-writing SOS again but with a DIFFERENT OUTCOME and even the events during it. and this time Jasam will not beak apart.
Last time, Sam did not have anybody to talk to.
This time, Sam does. Yes, Jason is confiding in Liz but then, Sam confided in McBain first.
Sam used to come upon Jason with Liz several times. Now Jason is the one that is coming upon John and Sam.
Last time, Liz always came to Jason with her problems, and Jason was trying to fix them. This time, Liz is just an ear for Jason while Sam has John.
Last time, Liz was shoving her friendship to Jason in Sam's face. Now she's TeamJasam. how ironic. and this time, Sam has someone on her side. John who will lash out at Jason to take better care of Sam.
These are the few I can think of but I am sure, DorA, Haylee, DWJ or AB can come up with more.
and that is why I say, Liz is IRRELEVANT.
I think you covered it pretty well but...
Last time Jason was NOT married, now he is and we all know Jason is not the type to cheat.
Last time Jason keeping secrets from Sam caused problems, this time it's Sam telling the truth that is causing them.
Last time it was about keeping Jason away from his child, this time its about keeping Jason with his child.
