  • Mac saying 'I'm in love with him', not exactly a secret to those amongst us who've watched JAG from the beginning, but...

    The tension between Mac and Harm ever since the first episode of season 7 was pretty intense. It was painful to see how Mac, when she went to Harm after Brumby left, he couldn't be there for her due to Renee's dad's death, and how lonely and confused she felt - understandably - which made her want to get away for a while. It was even more painful to see in 'The Measure of Men' how Harm tried to talk to Mac, when she wasn't ready yet, and how on 'Jag-a-thon' again they couldn't find a way to resolve thing between them, to make it work! I'm wondering though, why after Mac lets ‘it’ slip to Sturgis that it never comes up again! I was expecting that due to Harm and Sturgis close friendship back then at some point Sturgis would tell...and after watching the series finale I think the writers should have worked that in somewhere, considering that Mac never ever - not even when Harm proposes and confesses his love to her, something he never said to another woman - tells Harm that she loves him (except in 'Lifeline') though we have heard her saying it to Brumby and Webb, men she never were as close to as Harm. I never really doubted that Mac did love Harm, until season 9. Her relationship with Webb had me really tripping...that's why I really needed her to say it to Harm at least in the finale! It wasn’t a satisfying ending to their journey in quite a few ways…after showing as how close Mac came to Webb the writers should have really cleared all doubts from our minds concerning Mac's feelings for Harm, whether she feels the same way about him as he does for her. Sadly, they didn't...
