Are Justecca the New Gizzie?
A twist in an upcoming episode of ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" may send Rebecca (Emily Van Camp) into Justin's arms (the red-bearded Dave Annable).
According to casting sides for the first post-strike episode (titled "Separation Anxiety") Justin is by Rebecca's side when she arranges a DNA test in order to determine whether or not Holly's friend (Ken Olin) is her father.
Earlier this season, the viewers were led to question the paternity of Rebecca's late father William Walker which would open up new romantic possibilities for the character.
But will the writers dare take the obvious and increasingly sudsy route in their storytelling and abolish the family tie between Rebecca and Justin, that they worked so hard to establish last year?
Such twist with quasi-incestuous connotations could lead, according to some fans, to a disaster of Gizzistic proportions.
On the other hand, the characters played by Van Camp and Annable who are said to be dating in real life, have had a special bond and relied upon each other for support since the day they met.
Let us hope the producers of "Brothers & Sisters" know what they are doing. The show returns April 20 with 4 all-new episodes crammed with juicy developments. The 2nd season finale airs May 11. The show has already been renewed for a 3rd season.
