Show blending path even for two open shape blends

With the Blend/Gradient Shape tool (W) i can turn a orange square into a green circle or a horizontal line into a vertical line. Beautifull, lots of available effects.

One nice thing is that you can edit and bend the path between the shapes to give them the direction you want, or a smoother movement.

Except if you only traced two open paths. In that case, illustrator assumes you want to build a straight gradient, and shows you no path between.

The only way i've found to actually display that path was to build a 3 strokes gradient, and remove the third stroke.

Is there an option to display that blending path ?

 

Can we have one by default on any blending, even open path ?
