Default New love interest for Beth!

I just found a press release on the NBC Universal Village site that says there is going to be a new love interest for Beth! Sounds like it will last several episodes at least. What about JJ?



NEWLY POPULAR SINGER-SONGWRITER BEN TAYLOR ('THE BEN TAYLOR BAND') MAKES HIS ACTING DEBUT ON SEASON PREMIERE OF NBC'S 'AMERICAN DREAMS'
Published: June 22, 2004

The Ben Taylor Band Currently in Studio to Record New Album, Another Run Around the Sun, Release to Coincide with Series Opener This Fall

BURBANK, Calif. -- June 22, 2004 -- Rising musical prodigy Ben Taylor makes his acting debut guest-starring in a multi-story arc as Cal, a struggling singer-songwriter in the mid-1960s who will also be performing in the Lair -- and provides a new romantic interest for Beth Mason (Rachel Boston) -- in the third season of NBC's hit drama, 'American Dreams' (Sundays, 8-9 p.m. ET).
Taylor is currently in an Atlanta studio recording the Ben Taylor Band's follow-up album to their 2003 critically acclaimed debut, Famous Among the Barns. Recording with producer Rick Beato (Ingram Hill, Flickerstick, The Rising), the band's new album titled Another Run Around the Sun, is expected to be released this Fall to coincide with the season premiere of NBC's "American Dreams," which will also feature original music from this album.

"It's our show's good luck to have Ben Taylor playing the Beatles' 'In My Life' last season," said 'American Dreams' executive producer Jonathan Prince. "There will be romantic tension between Ben's character and Beth, played by Rachel Boston. How could there not be? A good-looking guy with a guitar who sings like an angel."

Wellll, technically, it says that there is romantic tension not an actual romance between them...

But, yes, what about JJ? As runner of the Beth and JJ fanlisting, this bit of news has me going :-/

being a big J.J. fan i would really like it if he and Beth didn't get back together. they seem to never agree on anything and i dont think that J.J. will want to be a father.

on a different topic (kinda) who thinks J.J. will come home. in the last episode it seemed like he was in heavy combat. i think he will come home because he is J.J. and J.J. is invicable(sry i cant spell) (thoses face thingys are so much fun)

I'm thinking that maybe JJ is going to get taken POW, hopefully not for the whole season though. I don't think they'll kill him, but I'm definitely thinking something will happen--such as POW.

Personally, I think it would be far out of character for JJ to not want to be a dad. JJ, especially since joining the marines, has developed a pretty big sense of personal responsiblity and doing what's right. I think when it's all said and done, he will want to be with Beth and their baby. Yes, Beth and JJ do disagree from time-to-time, but all couples disagree. It is very obvious watching them though that they care very deeply for one another and are crazy about each other.

Just another thought here... What if JJ gets back and notices romantic tension between Beth and new guy? We get more jealous JJ, which totally rocks when he gets all jealous over the thought of Beth being with someone else...

Default What will happen to JJ?

I am guessing also that he will become a POW for a time. They'll probably bring him home in a big surprise tearjerker episode - maybe around Christmas? I think his character would want to be a father and that eventually, after some struggles he will end up with Beth! I'm hoping anyway!

I think it would be interesting if JJ were taken POW, then when he was found/released, the family somehow didn't get notification and they still think he's missing and/or dead. Then, he shows up at home on Christmas Eve...

JJ won't die. I'm like %99.999999 sure of it cause its been said on talk shows, interviews and such that he will make it home alive. I also think that there is still a fairly good chance he and Beth will get back together...eventually...but it may take a while (especially considering what both of them have been through). However, as far as JJ not wanting to be a father...as someone in an earlier post said (if i wasnt so lazy i'd check who lol) if that is the case...tough luck for him..he's gonna be one...whether he likes it or not...and even if JJ and Beth dont get back together...NOTHING can alleviate him of that responsibility (which he will step up to I am assuming--- knowing a little about his character). So who knows. Can't wait to find out.
Best,
Abby

P.S. I am a huge fan of JJ and Beth's relationship. I'm rooting for them working out their issues...as they have done in the past (these more recent issues are just more severe than before). But we'll just have to wait and see.

i think j.j. will get jealous because he seems to be very good at being jealous. and i have a question did j.j. and beth evan break up or did she give him the ring back because if she still has it they r probably still engaged. and i dont think she ever gave it back to him but im going to wath for that today when me and my best friend have an american dreams marathon there so much fun!

Beth still has the ring. In the next to last episode of the season, there was a scene where she was setting on her bed, reading all of JJ's letters--when she was trying to figure out what to do about the baby--and she also had the ring and a picture of JJ out.

Default hmmm

I Am a huge Will Estes fan and I love the place that his character is in. I am not the hugest JJ/Beth fan but in the sake of time period (!960's) he will remain with her and will be a great father to his child. However, i do think that he will 1 be wounded in Action or taken as POW or both. and the family will be notified and he will make a surprise visit home to see a very pregnant beth....actually her and new bundle of joy!! ......I think both character as to dynamic for each other and palcing the together will ony dapen the story.


I haven't posted in a while .....its good to be back!
