And I do agree with you that Mellie cannot admit that she's a vicious monster who is mostly only out for herself. However, I DO think that even up until the point that she found out about his affair with Olivia, Mellie loved Fitz and didn't just love what Fitz provided for her, which was the opportunity to be FLOTUS. She might have been cold and distant, and she had a hand in Defiance, but I really think that was the beginning of her...descent. When she realized her husband had fallen in love with someone else, she decided to take what she could while she could. It's cold and manipulative, but it's not out of the realm of ordinary except that we're dealing with the leader of the free world and his wife.
I don't think Susan was out of line at all. When someone becomes the President of the United States, their duty is to country first and themselves way down the line. Maybe that's a difference in how we read the actual position versus this fictional one, but yeah, she said what was on the conscience of the fictional American people. (If one of our POTUSes had a real affair and it was made public, the national reaction wouldn't be one of "here, let me take a selfie." I mean, it might for some people, but by and large, no.) I've never promoted the fact that Olivia loves Jake. Ever. She doesn't. I know that. It's clear she doesn't. But I also don't think she loves Fitz the way Fitz loves her. One of Olivia's flaws is that she keeps everyone at arm's length. Plus, I think she's terrified of what a real life with Fitz would look like. (Vermont, jam, being a soccer mom while he's a mayor...that's so not Olivia.) Maybe her saying "yes" was her acceptance of the fact that she wants that "normal" life. Maybe it wasn't. Either way, yes, I'm glad the writers went there. It'll be interesting to see what happens now that they're managing this crisis which features themselves.
They were all taken from the White House security cameras in public areas within the building.
Here's a thing I want to know that I neglected to mention up there in the review because Scandal ended tonight too: HOWTF did they get into Elena's brain?! How was that happening? When? She's not a vampire anymore. Tyler doesn't have magical powers to see inside her head. HOW WAS THAT HAPPENING? Theories. Ready...go:
1. Yeah, I was giving that the side-eye until Kai said he siphoned the magic out. We couldn't have found a witch to counteract a wolf bite because we'd never met a witch who could siphon magic before. 2. Yep. Can't we shed a tear for Alaric and Jo? JUST ONE!?3. Meh. I like them. 4. LOLOLOL5. I agree. Completely. 6. Lily was preparing to make Enzo part of her family when she and the rest of her friends were whisked away to the prison world and he was left to transition alone thinking she had abandoned him after they massacred everyone on the boat.
He said she would be trapped in her current state until Bonnie dies. And yeah, they just...gave up. I mean...okay? Okay. Whatev. Tyler came back to say goodbye to Elena and she told him to leave Mystic Falls and embrace his wolf side. That's Trevino's cue to exit.
I knew this was the end for Kai, too, as it was announced months ago that Plec had a new show in the works with Wood as the lead, but yeah, I'll miss him. I think he brought something devilish and electric to the show. I'm a little concerned about the Heretics. With no more Gemini witches around, who will fight them?
I'm sure Kai created some sort of loophole where that just wouldn't work, but I like the way you think.
Eh, One Tree Hill lost leading lady Hilarie Burton and over the course of the series, Sophia Bush, who was supposed to be nothing more than a few episode guest star in S1 turned into the leading lady just fine. It can happen. I'd venture to say that Nina Dobrev's life is about Nina Dobrev. So it really IS about Nina.
She can't perform the spell herself, but she can have another witch do it. So long as her real body isn't destroyed she always has a place to go back to. I think. The rules are always foggy.
