RE: [torchwood] Abandonment of Jack
- View SourceAbsolutely spot on! I think Jack is "polyamorous" to use the technical term,
although think about it, the only person Jack's had "relations" with
recently has been Ianto. Making eyes at people isn't necessarily the same
thing as having sex with them - otherwise I'd be in real trouble, LOL!
One thing interesting is that although we know that Jack is knocking off
Ianto, that's somehow not enough for us - we want "the whole fairytale" (to
quote the movie "Pretty Woman"). I can't think of any other TV series where
that's been the case - the sex preceeding the romance, I mean.

He doesn't have a monogamous bone in his body. Anyone who doesn't get that,
doesn't get him as a character. If you're annoyed at him, I can't
And not being monogamous doesn't mean you're a cheater...it just means
you're capable of having more than one committed relationship at a time. At
least he's *ethical* about it or he would've tried to jump Gwen's bones ages
