Will Jason Stay Retired?

Hidden in all this dust lies the hypothesis of many AIO fans. What do you feel is sure to happen, and what should stay buried? Chris says keep listening, we say speculate.

His whole personality tells us, that's what.

He's a great guy, great with kids, great with women, just an awesome guy with that hint of wild recklessness in his blood..... and he is a Whittaker. That covers a multitude of sins.

Yeah was she even a Christian? I don't remember. I laughed so hard when she got so mad at Whit for spanking Monty!

True! I never liked Jana... Maybe only Whittaker boys turn out :)

No Jana had more Whit's stubbornness than Jason did. I think she is a Christian.

Why do you think that, Blitz?

I don't think he'll stay any longer than maybe 4 volumes.

Just because she acted in that way in A Member of the Family does not mean she is unsaved. Not that I am excusing it, but she had undergone a divorce only a few years before. She hadn't entirely healed from that. She also felt bitterness with her father at how he dealt with her as a teenager, preferring Jason over her. (As you remember, this was a subconscious act of Whit that was triggered by Jerry's death.)

Also, arguably getting mad at someone else for spanking your child, ignoring you are against those parenting methods, overriding your parental authority. Yeah, that's fairly good reason to be mad. Jana was still rather too nasty. Just saying she still had a good reason.

I have no idea where this conversation currently is so pardon my laziness in not reading the last three pages.

I like the idea of having Jason around because it gives him room to be in more episodes. On the other hand, one role where I thought Jason really shone was when he was a missionary. He had his flaws and short comings, but it helped him grow as a character. I also really like his role now because he'll be used for more than a "save-the-world-sirum" that is injected in all the major story arcs. Placing him at the antique shop seems perfectly within his character, and his Dad could help if he ever has questions. I think that Jeff might be our "new action guy" with his mission work stories. As a pilot with missions it opens the doors for many story lines and Monty is an option as well. In the recent episodes Jason's role as at the antique shop has been used well. Personally, I want to see more spiritual growth from Jason and I think taking him out of the action will help with that.

Whit was his grandfather and he was in charge of Monty while he was there. And if there was anything that child needed it was a good loving spanking. Maybe it did give Jana a reason to be mad but I don't think Whit did anything horribly wrong.
But Jason is right. This thread has gotten really silly

I think(or rather, hope) that Jason will stay retired for the most part. I would still like to see him engage in the action when a mystery comes to Odyssey, but I think that his journey with the NSA, CIA, and FBI is done.

I would possibly like to see him work as an undercover detective for the Odyssey Police for some amount of time. Just to give us a dose of Jason-awesomeness ;)

"Maybe, but you won't hear it again."

Jason has far defied the odyssians who think his retirement is a short break stubbornly as he refuses to marry Connie. Do you think he'll once again get back in action, and do you like the way Jason's character has been his last few non-agent albums?
Excuse me, but Jason is likely in his early forties. I think that normal Jason will take some getting used to, but also that Connie should marry someone on her age level.

Jeff still exists? That was likely a one show shabang.

Except he's now been 6 episodes, including Life Expectancy...

And yes, he does seem to be fitting the "action guy" persona.

I still have reservations that he sounds like my 3rd grade science teacher... who got *ahem* fired.
O.o :oops: , assuming you catch my drift.... These are likely the source of my reservations on Shona as well... brrrrrrr.....

Then why did you bring it up?

I think that for Jason to stay away from the agency for awhile would be good for him. While I appreciate moral complexity in my protagonists, from a Christian standpoint, Jason has displayed some questionable-at-best attitudes that likely stem from the work he had to do while in the agency ("[Fighting fire with fire is] the only way I know how to fight", his attempts to play the hero instead of relinquishing control to God). I won't contest that Jason has grown beyond some of that, but we also see as recently as in "Home Again" that he struggles with being still and knowing that God is God for awhile, and the need for a thrill from action, again, is partially as a result from the adrenaline rush of his work in the NSA and even his missions work. As far as his development as a Christian is concerned, I think that actually settling down the way he's often said he wants to would help him to find some soul rest.
it's not about 'deserve'. it's about what you believe. and i believe in love

Connie can't marry Whit because of the age difference ew. She probably also can't marry Jason. I hope they get her involved with Jeff I feel bad for her being left alone. Is AIO afraid of love? When they do have a love story it is super complicated. Why can't anyone just fall in love? And what is with Jason having all these flings Tasha/ the girl in that one episode during the rainstorm with the joke about ducks and glasses/ and Monica and then we never hear from the girls again! I don't think he should go back to agency type work that is getting too repetitive. I like that he is at the antique store. I think it makes sense but I want to see more character development. Struggle and spiritual growth like when he was working with Jack at Whits End or even when he was a missionary.
