He has a new mentality and gained’t take any garbage.”
There’s additionally the small matter of James admitting to attempting to kill JP’s huge sister Mercedes McQueen final 12 months after mistakenly believing she murdered his lover Harry Thompson. As Sutton factors out, that’s fairly a factor to get previous.

Though they nonetheless care about one another, there’s a lot of historical past and they’ve been there by tough occasions. I’d prefer to suppose sooner or later they are going to revisit the connection. However for the second, John Paul and George goes to be a biggie and will run for a whereas.”

And he’s fairly flirty with Nana – she’s received an eye fixed for a good-looking gentleman, and they don’t come way more good-looking than PC Kiss!”
