^ Yes, it was. I love that Jack tells the girlfriends that Shawn is a good guy, and that any girl would be lucky to have him. It showed how highly he thought of him, even though they had been back in each other's lives for about four months.

It did make it seem as if they had been in each other's lives a lot longer

^ I know, right? It must have made Shawn so happy to hear that Jack thought he was a good guy and that any girl would be lucky to have him.

is right. It makes me sad when I think about the fact that there was so much distance between them in those early days.

^ Yes, they were. I think Shawn and Jack tiptoeing around each other only delayed the distance and tension that they felt at the first sign of conflict. They seemed to learn from that encounter, and they tried to communicate better which brought them closer together.

It did, & I think that Jack then finding out about the letters that Shawn had sent him made a big difference too - they just had a lot that they needed to talk out

^ That's so true! I wish we had heard a little bit more about the letters that Shawn sent to Jack. They must have been so sad and disappointed that they lost out on their chance to connect as brothers because those letters were thrown away. Do you think Shawn remembered what he wrote in some of his letters to Jack to share some of the details with him?

Maybe not the words, but I'm sure that Shawn remembered the feelings behind them & was able to tell Jack about that

^ I can imagine that. Jack must have wanted to know every experience that was so significant to Shawn that he might have wanted to tell Jack about it. They probably spent the rest of the night telling each other about all of the experiences that shaped them into the people they became. I bet they both felt closer to each other after that talk.

Definitely, knowing that they both wanted this relationship would have made it easier to put the work in

^ I agree. Maybe if the show had been a drama instead of a sitcom, TPTB would have given us a few more Shawn/Jack moments.

Shawn and Jack are such dorks in that moment. I kind of wish we had gotten to see more of Cory's film so we could have seen the guys figure out how to be brothers.

^ Right? The central part of the Shawn/Jack section of Cory's film had them talking about their relationship. That meant that they really wanted to form that brotherly connection. I would have loved to have seen more scenes of them trying to figure things out. The wrong steps that they took along the way would have been just as important as the right steps that they took.

Definitely, a lot of things are trial & error

^ Oh, for sure. I love that Shawn and Jack's best friends were the Matthews brothers. I imagine the Matthews brothers were a huge help to the Hunter brothers when they were having trouble connecting as brothers.
