When I read this title the first couple that came to mind was JT and Victoria, I still don't understand that pairing and never got it during it's first few iterations. I guess that's why the writing team fell over themselves when they saw dailies for "Villy" not that, that specific pairing was all that great either but at least I could see a potential story there.
"Sassy, street smart, unafraid of confrontation" aka a little hood
Wears her emotions on her sleeve = angry black woman
Knows she is "all that" just made me roll my eyes. So they couldn't just say confident?
I feel like Jax is the king of useless pairings. The quickie Jax/Skye marriage? Chloe? Angel? Sam? Courtney? Nina? All lame. Unfortunately, Ingo only sparks with LW and Vanessa Marcil, so they just throw everyone else at him instead. They should just give him and Alexis a try, but real life stuff probably prevents that.
I still wish that story played out with Vanessa. It could have been great. I am not a Jason/Brenda fan, but in 2003 I'd allow it. And I would assume Sonny/Brenda would have been the endgame on it. Sam was not an okay replacement lol. She just had no history to make it a good story. Were we supposed to be rooting for her and Jason or her and Sonny or Sonny and Carly? I still don't know.
