Hi, I've been really enjoying your analysis of Abby, so I hope you don't mind if I jump in with some thought. :)

It was really clumsy of the writers the way they wrote the whole Jack thing, as you've talked about. Besides needing a reason to keep Connor and Abby apart, which could've happened with Connor staying in the flat. I think they wanted Connor to move in with Lester and had Abby throw him out as the best solution.

However, that aside, your ideas are really good about her not wanting Connor to talk to Jack. It's also possible, she wanted time alone with Jack for some reason, to talk to him about his errant ways or help him find a responsible job, and she thought it would be easier without Connor around. I do think she thought it would be a really short time and it turned out to be a lot longer.

However, I do have one idea about why she never just said her brother was in town when she and Connor first talked about Jack at the anomaly site. If she brought up Jack, then she might've felt like she would've had to ask him to move out and she didn't want to have that conversation in the middle of a work environment. So better to just keep mum about Jack until there was a better time and place to talk about him.

thanks, glad you're enjoying it.

Good points, they probably had the idea about Connor and Lester being a comedy double act, and just went with it, regardless of how clumsy they had to be to make it happen. Which sounds like far too many plot ideas on Primeval, to be honest - it seems like a good idea, so they just do it without really thinking it through.
