    This is only okay if makes Amy jealous and thus pushes the Jake/Amy storyline forward. Slow build is great but I just hope Sophia isn’t one of the first in a long line of pointless hook-ups for Jake and Amy before we get any semblance of them as a couple.

      I think there’s a decent likelihood of Amy being jealous being part of the story. I would assume that this would be mirror version of what Jake felt with Amy and Teddy in season 1. However, I wouldn’t hedge any bets on Jake and Amy getting close to being a couple anytime soon. Its only season 2 after all.
