And I think from that moment we started to try and slide stuff in there," he said. It's kind of mysterious - so unexpected," says Montgomery, who started out thinking there would probably be an eventual love connection between her character and Malone, only to learn it had already happened.
Montgomery says fans ask, "'What's happening with Jack and Sam? LaPaglia chuckles wryly about fans' interest in "that stuff. We really don't give them concrete answers. Everything is kind of insinuated. I prefer that - you actually have the audience participate by wondering.
You let them think. TV Guide reports that a love triangle featuring LaPaglia's character is in the works. The idea is to humanize the robotic professionals, to loosen them up a bit and inject some sex and soap opera, making it more like "ER. The reason people may have flocked to "Without a Trace" is because it was all business.

What's happening this season four with Samantha Spade and the men in her life? We haven't really resolved the situation with Samantha and Martin or Samantha and Jack.
But things are going to heat up since Jack will have a romance with Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio's character.
Will Samantha be jealous? She absolutely will get furious. She's going to be completely territorial because she loves Jack. That seemed to be over. She's always loved Jack. In the last episode of the series I think they should get married-- live happily ever after. I think that chapter is closed.
What advice would you give Samantha? Don't let him get involved with anybody else. Even though she loves Martin, she always thinks about Jack-- he's the complicated one. But then Martin is so cute. Would you put somebody else's name at the top of my dialogue? It's the guest cast that gets the big emotional scenes.

And let's get back to that missing person case. This last episode showed a man, a Guatemalan torturer, bound to a chair. The viewer sees a fairly lethal-looking knife, held up to the camera and the voiceover says: Malone steps in immediately and lands him a swift punch which sends him reeling.
A little glimpse of his old character will keep me watching next season to see if he will recover from the traumatic events of late. Part of me wondered whether that meant the pair were going to get back together, or was it just a friendly offer of support and help? Was anyone else secretly hoping that Sam was lying to Elena when she said the father was no one Elena knew? I was hoping Sam and Jack had one last fling and ended up with a baby.

When Acting Is Not Enough: Without A Trace "Malone V Malone" Review
But it wasn't until year two that we came up with the backstory idea of his mother's suicide being the core thing that drives him. It doesn't make him happy, and it will never be enough because there will always be another missing person. Not that we, the viewers, have any idea what's going on: The show has never given us a line of dialogue to indicate that Sam and Jack investigated each other intimately after hours.
Then again, the show has given us plenty of tense exchanges between the two whenever the issue of marital fidelity or fatherly obligation comes up, and the caution with which the characters choose their words betrays a world of unexamined subtext.
Would that it stay that way. For me, whether Sam and Jack will get all gabby about their boudoir business is no great cliffhanger. What I want to know is whether the creative team behind Without a Trace will be able to resist the temptation to bring a little romance into the office Well, think about it.

They went outside and Jack hailed a taxi. When a taxi pulled up to the curb Jack opened the door for Samantha and said "You can take the first one I'll get the next one. Jack smiled to himself and his inner voice was screaming at him "Don't get in the cab you will regret it later! The cab ride to Samantha's was quite but the tension grew with every city block they passed. Jack accidentally touched Samantha's hand and they let the touch linger for much longer then it should have.
When the cab finally pulled up to Samantha's apartment Jack got out first to let her out. Jack began to get back in the cab. Both thinking to themselves. Samantha turned around as Jack was about to close the car door.
