I think this is about as good as it gets for Jason's dynamic with his parents, after all, his mother was assaulted in their own home and he was nowhere to be found when it came to stand up with his father, which may be convenient if you're pushing forward the "forbidden love story" between him and Miles's niece but its totally contrived when it comes the Nevile family unit, especially after how awesome their origin story episode was.
Same goes to Miles and Monroe, I actually cared about it back when they were still "brothers" and Miles feared he might care about him more than he cared about his extended family. Now he's the Matherson's lap dog? Why should I bother to care about a friendship that poses no conflict for either one of the parties involved. It would be about as dumb as to care about Aaron's wife after it was established he has a male crush on Charlie or to worry about the Charlie & Jason thing when I know Charlie doesn't care about Aaron any more than Jason cares about his parents.
If there's no conflict then there are no stakes, if there are no stakes involved then I may as well be watching a video game for I'm not invested in the characters.
I understand what you mean, but I think it's too early to tell. The things are just being set up at the moment, and I am sure there'll be plenty of moral dilemmas and conflicts in the days to come.
