In order to do that, they had Scott, who had always been a ‘follow the rules’ type of guy, and loyal to his friends (and of course that goes without saying his family), up and LEAVE HIS WIFE AND CHILD once he learns that Jean is alive again!?!?! Only much later does he decide to check back in on them. I think it was executive meddling that made this happen (just to get… Read more »
