|Brothers & Sisters Character|
|Portrayed by:||Dave Annable|
Barrel of LaughsEdit
A bit of a do-nothing loser, after the 9/11 attacks, Justin's sister confides in him her worries about safety after seeing the destruction first hand. Due in part to this, he signs up for the Army despite the protestations of nearly the entire family. He comes back from Iraq changed. His drug use, habitual during his teenage years, turns into something darker and more self-destructive. Just when things were starting to look up, with a job, and a girlfriend, he gets orders that he's to go back to Iraq. Finally, he hits bottom, not only relapsing, but overdosing and losing his girlfriend. His brother Kevin manages to get him a six month reprieve under the terms that he attend rehab, which he does. By the time he goes to Iraq again, he's sober and has found his resolve again, determined that going back is what he has to do.
When he comes back, he returns to the support of both his family and various veteran and addiction support groups. He gets more involved with his half-sister, Rebecca, and it's only when he finds out that he she might not be his sister that he acknowledges that he might have feelings for her. Once she tells him that he isn't, he's not entirely sure what to do with the information and leaves her, winding up at Canyon Ridge, instead.
The Black SheepEdit
Justin is an addict. That's not to say that he isn't a good person, but when all else fails, he'll go back to his standard coping mechanisms: drugs and alcohol. This isn't his only weakness. He can be arrogant and thoughtless and ignore the pleas and help from his family. As the baby of the family, he gets away with probably a lot more than he should. On the other hand, when someone needs him, he's right there, especially when that person is family. In fact, he even offered to be the sperm donor to his brother's wife when he found out that Tommy couldn't have children. He's also much more intelligent, brave, and dedicated than most of his family give him credit for. He had to have been to not only go to Iraq once, but go a second time against the wishes of pretty much the entirety of the Walker clan.
