tentative return date

The projected date for his return episode is Tuesday, May 17th. In a current Missy Reeves' interview she gives insight into Jack's return. It appears it will be as a ghost as she continues to spiral due to her addictions. It is uncertain, but it appreas that the return is only for one day not the previously thought five. Though it seems that the Jack and Jennifer scenes take up mots of the episode. As always, this is not substantiated, so the return could be for more episodes.

There are several photos of Matthew at the studio, Matthew being subversive, Matthew honoring Frances Reid and MacDonald Carey, Matthew with Missy Reeves, and Matthew with Mary Beth Evans.

sitcom project
Gregori Martin, the talented creator of The Bay, posted the following on Facebook, "No, it's not #TheBay yet! Wrapped another day on set of new #sitcom w/ @KristosAndrews [Matthew's The Bay co-star, Peter Garrett] & @matthew_ashford #ThisJustIn." I am assuming this too is a webseries -- though I may be wrong. I also am not sure if Matthew is a castmember of this project or was just a guest star for this particular episode. When I have more information I will updated the page.
