It's a bond that cannot be broken and people often stay in love with someone they were pals with in their teen years or early 20.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~SEASON 2:Q: Who is Matt's father?A: Matt was born to Julia and Sean, and it was always assumed that Sean was his father. Unbeknownst to Sean (and to the rest of the audience until that time), Julia and Christian had a one-night fling shortly before Julia and Sean got married, and Julia began to wonder if Christian might in fact be Matt's father. She stole hair from Christian's hairbrush and took it in, along with a razor of Matt's, to have the DNA tested. She found out that Christian was indeed Matt's biological father, but she kept the secret to herself. She only revealed it to Christian when she saw his grief over losing Wilbur, to reassure him that he still did have a son--in Matt.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Q: Who is Wilbur?A: Wilbur is the baby who was born to Gina Russo. She told Christian she was pregnant with his baby, and he believed the baby was his until he was born (when it was obvious that Wilbur's father must have been black).

Christian finally realizes that Sean is the closest thing to him and loves him, but is not in love with him.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Q: I heard that Rosie O' Donnell's character Dawn Budge, is supposed to have a spin off. Is that true? A: The answer is most likely a definite NO. The idea was thrown around due to the popularity of the character's multiple appearances on the show, but producers have said that it is no longer happening.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~SEASON 5:Q: Why move to Hollywood?A: Sean's life just kept going into a downward spiral. So he needed a change of scenery and decided to go to California to be a less high class surgeon than he was in Miami. Christian decided that he needed Sean in his life so he went along with him.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~SEASON 6:Q: Is Julia's mother dead?A: It is confirmed that Julia's mother is alive (but still a b*tch!) during Season 6 in the two-part episode "Alexis Stone" (6.6) and "Alexis Stone II" (6.7). However, at the end of Alexis Stone II, She was falsely accused of being drug addict at airport scene and got arrested before she tries to leave for somewhere else.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Q: Is Season 6 the last season?A: Yes, the last 9 episodes of the season were originally supposed to be held for a 7th season but were merged with season 6.
