i love the idea that rai and jack start dating but nothing really changesjack is still the self proclaimed ‘prince of darkness’ and a complete and total brat, and rai is still a good guy who’ll stop jack no matter what. but there is a difference in the small things.
rai never fights jack more than is necessary to stop whatever evil plan he’s hatched, and he makes sure the other monks don’t take it too far either (the whole “taking jack’s hair” incident makes him feel so guilty for weeks before jack finally snaps and says it’s all in the past, and besides, it’s not like wouldn’t have done the same thing in rai’s position - hell he probably would’ve gone further)
jack’s evil plans shift from “eliminate the xiaolin losers” to “get them conveniently out of the way while i take over the world”. surprisingly, this is actually a more effective technique, especially when he can get the xiaolin monks to keep chase and wuya busy too.
rai starts “accidentally” leaving the vault open whenever jack loses all his wu, and jack starts “accidentally” only taking the sort of useless wu that the monks haven’t used in ages (the monkey staff is always left in the open, if not “accidentally” left behind after the showdown)
and the others start getting in on it too. kimiko starts challenging jack online at goo zombies, and they’re in pretty much constant competition for the highest score. not only that, but jack turns out to be a great (almost unintentional) beta tester, since his first instinct is to always hack into the game and try to find exploitable weaknesses, which gives kimiko a chance to find where the weaknesses in the code are.
clay always makes extra hotdogs at his barbeques, since jack has some sort of hotdog radar and always turns up at the exact time he finishes cooking to 'steal’ some hotdogs. omi almost continuously tries to turn jack to the side of good, and they eventually start having ice cream saturdays where they just sort of hang out. at some point rai starts coming along because jack’s his boyfriend damnit
in the end jack is still
