SPOILER, Alexis: It Gets So, So Much Worse
Let's be honest: how many of you made a fist pump of triumph when Alexis ran into Jason and gave him the most minimal amount of her attention, during which she had some harsh and simultaneously not-harsh-enough words about how he is, if I can sum things up quickly, a wretched person? I have no secrets from you dear friends, so I feel not even a little ashamed to say that I totally did.
Alexis: She's doing as well as can be expected. I'm looking for Dr Lee.
Jason: I haven't seen her.
Alexis: Well, Sam has a lot of questions. I think I'm going to have her paged.
Jason: I'm sorry about the baby.
Alexis: Are you?
Jason: I'm sorry Sam lost her son.
Alexis: Her son, not yours? Sam made it clear that you weren't going to accept Franco's baby. I wonder if maybe you had shown just a tad more generosity, just a little more compassion, she would have been with you last night and not in a lousy hotel giving birth in the middle of a storm. And that I would have my grandson right now.
Jason responded the way Jason always does, with a blank stare that I think was shooting for "profound inner pain" and instead hitting "I am making a tremendous effort not to let even the slightest whiff of guilt hit my face, because if you are this upset about run of the mill abandonment, how will you react to the news that not only was she giving birth in the middle of a storm at a dingy motel, but she was stranded there alone because I had her new friend beaten to a bloody pulp since I'm a territory-marking, violent asshole?"
I am eagerly--EAGERLY--anticipating the scenes in which the Davis clan learns that particular part of the story. Hopefully, they will all get a chance to hurt him with either their words or their nails; Molly, in particular, seems like she'd be adept with both. But with my luck, it will all take place offscreen but for the tearful scenes of the women eventually apologizing to Jason. So I should really take this Alexis greatness while I can get it, right?
