Useful information on Jack Manning (Past)
* Resides at the La Boulaie mansion.
Born in 2004, Jack Manning is the youngest of the Manning clan. Although we don't get to see this character often, Jack has already had to deal with many hardships and controversies surrounding his parents' sordid past.
At birth, his own father gave him away thinking Jack was the son of Max Holden while telling Blair that Jack had died! Most recently, Jack was ready to replace Todd with Dr. Spencer Truman after growing close to Spencer during a time when his father couldn't be there for him. However, after his mother Blair uncovered Spencer's damaging secrets, she was able to run interference and bring Todd and Jack back together.
However, his family's happiness is always tested. Jack suffered through a time when he thought his father was dead, when he had really been kidnapped by Margaret Cochran. He was forced to deal with the many breakups of his parents, ultimately after his father couldn't handle his sister's pregnancy. With his mother having a restraining order on Todd, Jack was left to live at his aunt's mansion with his mom, Starr and little brother Sam - until his mother was stabbed and Todd regained temporary custody!
During his time at Todd's, Jack came upon Todd, Tea and Blair, passed out, then was left traumatized by Powell Lord, who he watched take away his parents. However, Jack fought his fears, opened up to John McBain and told him what happened.
When Jack found out that he had a sister named Dani, who Tea kept from Todd, he wasn't too receptive of her at first. It wasn't until Tea died that Jack went to Dani and comforted her by saying how much Tea meant to him too.
A boy with a sweet demeanor, Jack's only hope is to break the Manning cycle and grow up without having his life tarnished by his parents' past mistakes! However, he's proven time and again that he's a chip off the old Manning block by using blackmail, which he credits learning from Todd, to get what he wants.

Over at the mansion, Sam finds Jack in the living room trying to drill open Eli's safe deposit box. Jack has no luck and converses with Sam about their next step. Sam reminds Jack that Dorian has some fireworks in the attic. As they head upstairs, Blair and Cris arrive. Blair runs after the boys while Cris calls Layla and asks, "Who the hell is this?" He wonders who the man answering Layla's phone is. When Blair returns with champagne, she stubs her toe on Eli's box and listens as Cris screams at Layla. He throws his phone and says, "Layla's cheating on me." Blair thinks Layla's a fool. "If Layla can't be faithful," Cris states, "why should I?" Blair notices how much Cris has had to drink and says, "I'll show you to my room… I mean your room." Knowing she hurt her toe, Cris carries Blair upstairs!
Everyone gathers in Angels Square as Dorian presents the lighting of the Christmas tree. Blair scolds Jack, who's about to tell Sam there's no Santa. Clint runs into Vimal and warns him to be quite when Vimal brings up Brody being his daughter's baby's father and Rex being Clint's son. As Rex and Gigi head to Viki's, Rex stops and calls Clint the Grinch! Aubrey sees Clint and makes a comment about him hating her. Joey suggests Kelly soften Clint up for Aubrey. All three approach Clint, who makes a quick getaway. Kelly agrees. Clint hates 'her'. Joey tries to reassure Aubrey then gives Kelly a gift: goggles to prevent getting lemon in her eye again. Kelly gives Joey her clown ornament. She heard his broke. Aubrey laughs about Kelly's gift from Joey then shows her the bracelet Joey bought her.
Over at the mansion, Starr tells Langston about her visit to see Cole and says, "Without Cole it just isn't Christmas." Starr and Langston exchange gifts then decide to get out of the house. Later, Blair warns Jack to quit ruining Christmas when he tells Sam that Santa is a myth. After Blair leaves the room, Jack starts guessing what's in all the presents. Sam spots Eli's box. Jack suggests they open it. It's their mom's from her psycho dead husband. They take the box and head outside.
When Echo arrives, Dorian takes her up to the rooftop. She wants Echo to take a photo of her in a Santa suit for next year's mayoral calendar. Dorian claims to have forgotten something and promises to be right back. Dorian leaves and locks Echo on the rooftop without a coat! Echo screams and shivers for Dorian to open the door. Echo puts on the Santa suit to stay warm and screams over the edge, "Hello!" Outside the mansion, just as Jack tries to pry open Eli's box, Sam points to the rooftop. It's Santa! They race up to the rooftop. "Santa?" Jack asks, just as Echo falls down the chimney! "See, I told you," Sam tells Jack. There is a Santa! They think Santa's stuck and race back downstairs.
Back in the living room, Dorian joins Blair and Kelly, who rants about Joey and Aubrey. Blair kisses Kelly's cheek and suggests she move on. Kelly admits Blair was right. Aubrey's hiding something. She calls Rex and asks him to dig up dirt on Aubrey. Dorian lights the fireplace. Blair thinks she hears someone yelling. "It sounds like an Echo," Kelly agrees. Dorian laughs and turns up the Christmas music. Jack and Sam race in. Blair screams at Jack when he throws water on the fire. He's trying to save Santa! Blair thought he didn't believe in Santa. Suddenly, Echo crashes down the chimney and glares at Dorian, covered in soot!
