On Days Of Our Lives (DOOL), Jack Is Dead/Jack Is Back are cries that are regularly repeated. Well, we thought Jack (Matthew Ashford) was dead. Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) even chatted with his ghost in times of great stress.
Guess what – say it with me now! – Jack is back. Just as Jennifer is settling into a relationship with the – much younger if we go by the years they were actually born – Eric (Greg Vaughn). Ain’t that always the way? (And don’t cry too much for Eric, either, as his ex, Nicole, is also Salem bound.)
Are fans excited for the latest chapter in this very familiar novel? Here’s what almost 14,000 had to say!
This is the best news ever, 61% of you cheer! You’ve been in love with Jack and Jennifer for decades – and you’ve been suppressing the part where he raped Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) for just as long, and almost as well as she has.
You watched Jack and Jennifer fall in love, you watched them become parents to Abigail and JJ (Casey Moss), you watched him die and her grieve and him come back and her rejoice and him die and her grieve and…. If you loved it once, you’re really going to love it even more this time!
Hit the Road, Jack
Can’t he just stay dead, 38% of the fans wonder (kind of the way Mr. Incredible wanted to the world to just stay saved)? You’ve watched the story before, and it couldn’t have been that great, because why would Jack have been killed off again? And again? And again?
Jennifer is in a good place right now with Eric, and if they need a third wheel, that’s what Nicole (Arianne Zucker) is for. Jack would just be extra, and the character – and actor – deserve more respect than that.
