Of course, Julia did have a leading man prior to the debilitating accident. She also had a career, the details of which are unknown by even her closest kin. And whos the bandaged man skulking through the hospitals flickering hallways? Until all is revealed, these things arent Jonas concern. Hes enjoying his immersion in another, more revered life and really, how bad could it get?
