^ I agree. Even if TPTB couldn't bring Rider and Matthew in the same episode, they could have at the very least dropped a hint every once in a while that confirmed that they were still in each other's lives.

It only would have taken one sentence

^ I agree. A one-sentence mention of Shawn and Jack maintaining their connection would have been better than no mention at all.

Well, that's an interesting scene. I don't think Shawn would have reacted that way to the revelation that Jack's stepfather had helped pay for Shawn's tuition if he hadn't already been so vulnerable and raw after he lost his father.

Yeah, he was all mixed up & couldn't think rationally at the time. He really took it badly

^ Yes, he did. Shawn was too caught up in his grief to let Jack explain in that moment. Shawn wasn't ready to hear it, and Jack knew that.

Yeah, he tried to keep it from Shawn, but that didn't work out

^ No, it didn't. Do you think Shawn would have reacted slightly better if Jack (or Chet) had told him that Jack's stepfather had helped pay for Shawn's tuition? =)

Definitely, although I still think he would have been touchy about it

^ Oh, for sure. Shawn would not have been happy to have been thought of as a charity case. I think he would have told Jack that he was going to pay his stepfather back every cent that he paid for his tuition. It would have been the only way he would have accepted that help.

Even though I have no idea what's happening in that moment, I do love that they have similar looks on their faces.

Shawn was never good at accepting help

It's when they were trying to spend some quality time together

^ Oh, yeah! Even though Shawn and Jack tried so hard to find something that they could do together, the fact that they couldn't think of anything that they had in common shows how different they were from each other.

^ Oh, yes. I think Shawn and Jack did have things in common that they could have used as starting points to find activities that they could do together. They just had to spend time together so that those common interests could reveal themselves naturally.

I don't understand how they wouldn't have done that already, I mean, they lived together for a year in s5

^ That's true. That doesn't sit right with me. I really loved the headcanon that I had that Shawn and Jack had spent a lot of time together when they re-connected so that they could make up for all of the moments that they didn't get to have because they didn't grow up together. It makes me sad that that episode seems to suggest that they hadn't spent a lot of time together, despite the fact that they had lived together for a year.
