Bloodlines Music Playlist

Recommended Posts

There was this Teens React video where they reacted to 90's music, and it made me think about the mid/late 90's music scene. I decided it might be fun to revisit Bloodlines' music selections, which I had a blast doing. Enjoy!

40.) "Across the Universe" by Fiona Apple


When the family gets the news that Matt doesn't need a transplant, and Matt is free to celebrate Father's Day with his two fathers.




Reading this again, it did make me think about how important the father/son relationship has been in CAP. Will's drama with his father drove so much of the conflict in so many of the more recent stories. (Although it does seem like they've gotten to a better place.)


Although we don't really get much of that with JJ. He and Brad seem fine with each other, and they love each other, but I wouldn't say that they need each other like a person needs air, like you see with Will and Brad. They've kept a relatively calm, normal father/son relationship where Brad and JJ generally seem to respect each other.


In any event, it's weird to read this stuff, because everything absolutely implodes with Brad, Robbie, Jeanine, and their three kids that they raised happily for 13 years after this story. And it's weird to think about how innocent and happy JJ was, before he got involved in skating.
