UP OVER THE ABDUCTION OF HOPE Zack, Days of Our Lives'
Jennifer turned to the one person who, despite, his many
documented flaws, she always counted on: ex-husband Jack.
In a single sweet moment, the divorced duo tenderly reached out
to each other, giving viewers a glimpse of the abiding love they
wrongly accusing Jack of disappearing when she needed him most,
Jennifer learned he had actually been searching for clues about
the kidnapping. Melissa Reeves, whose Jennifer had been angrily
yelling moments earlier, turned Jen downright sheepish when she
apologized and thanked Jack for his concern.
Matthew aptly displayed Jack's awkwardness as he opened up about
his feelings; he looked away and hesitated while admitting that
he'd be devastated if something happened to Jennifer and Abby. Then,
in a voice barely above a whisper, he apologized for all the times
he'd left his wife and daughter alone.
A touched Jennifer wondered why it takes tragedy to make people
realize what's important in life. Reeves delivered Jennifer's words
poignantly, her eyes filled with tears. Then, she threw herr arms
around Jack and thanked him for being there.
As the two slowly pulled away from their embrace, their eyes locked
and they fell into a kiss. While Ashford's smile depicted Jack's
bliss, Reeves' revealed Jennifer's tentativeness; she kept her eyes
open and avoided Jack's lips before following her heart. Jennifer
feared what they had done was wrong, but Jack would have none of
that, insisting the kiss had been "so right." Days
fans would, no doubt, agree.
