Consider this your official Jordan Ashford appreciation post, guys. Because everything about her is giving me joy right now. Undercover DEA agent! Making plans with Anna! Bad ass ladies being awesome together! IT’S LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE.
ALSO: REALLY AMAZING HAIR
I’ve been on Jordan’s side since she showed up in town. But to be fair, I’d have been reflexively on the side of just about anyone getting judged on their moral failings by the local killer for hire. (Seriously, though — if both he and TJ don’t end up groveling at her feet with apologies once the truth comes out? I will… not be surprised at all because working with the cops is actually worse than being a drug dealer according to Saint Shawn’s moral code. UGH, HE IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST.)
But now that we finally know what she’s really been up to and it’s all I hoped? Team Jordan forever! All we need is for Julian to team up with her and Anna and my wishlist really will be complete. Speaking of which:
JULIAN: She made me take stock of my life, rethink my priorities. Suddenly it all made sense.
JORDAN: What did?
JULIAN: That I need to get out from this underworld, before I get arrested or killed.
JORDAN: You make it sounds so easy.
JULIAN: Yeah, well it wasn’t. But I made a choice and I’m committed to doing it for my family, the people I love.
You guys. You guys. A man actually tried to leave the mob for Alexis. This is not a drill. It was not a mass hallucination. THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
Sure, he did it in the stupidest possible way. And sure, it’s backfired almost immediately, and now it looks like he’s going to continue being even stupider for the foreseeable future. (Really, Julian? How about a failsafe that will automatically reveal FauxLuke’s identity if anything happens to you and yours? Is that so hard?)
But it’s the thought that counts. And this particular thought is one that Jason was never able to make for any of his women, one that Sonny hasn’t been capable of since about 1997, and one that I’m certain has woken Bob Guza up in a cold sweat of fear and horror at the mere thought of Alexis being more desirable than crime or power.
SUCK IT, BOB.
