When Jasper Jax (Ingo Rademacher) blackmailed Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) so that Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) could see Wylie, one of our community members made a very interesting comment. @solutionsbychandrallc on instagram commented that Michael would finally see what Sonny has all along in Jax. We addressed this topic on our episode titled "Trojan Horse". Over the years we have not always taken Sonny’s side when it came to Jax, but this comment really had us taking a closer look. We all know that Jax does not approve of Sonny in any shape or form, but the thing about Sonny is that he has a code. His choices are relatively consistent. Jax on the other hand does not, he has often acted in opposition of Sonny, not so much out of his own code or personal values. He defines himself as being nothing like Sonny, and the man who can save women from Sonny. What Sonny might have seen all along was a man without values, without a code, a man who would go where the wind blows, rooted in nothing.
What is kind of funny is that Jax will continue to lose in the battle of him versus Sonny, even the “better” version of Sonny that Nina has taken to. Jax is in for a rude awakening when he finds out who he went to bat for. I have no doubt he will find a way to blame Sonny for the situation Nina finds herself in. Whether it is an accurate view or not, Jax has a tendency to see most of the women he dates as a damsel in distress. Outside of Nina, Jax will have to live with the destruction of his relationship with Michael. Jax seems to think that Michael will just come around, like he is still a kid who will get over it. Jax has a tendency of seeing what he wants to see and no doubt will find himself on the losing end of love and family, just as Michael warned.
