Discussion Points

  1. I think the flashbacks carry this storyline, especially when Jack remembers them properly.
  2. What do you think about Robinson keeping such a tight leash on Jack?

I don’t mind Robinson having a tight leash on Jack. He gave him a proper ending. How many times have we seen a character have a fantastic send off only to keep coming back time and time again and it’s not as special. How many times have we seen someone else write a character and completely change them to the point we don’t recognize them as the character we loved?

Jack means something to Robinson and Harris. The fact they got to have that deal in the first place and are sticking with it is a rarity in comics.
