While I agree with you that it's sort of lazy writing, I kind of think it's time for Caroline to flip the switch. Her speech that everyone else has been able to turn it off and why should she have to be the one to suffer was spot on.

Eh, to be fair, we didn't witness any fallout between Olivia and Jake or Olivia and Huck, so there's nothing to say that it's not coming. It could be. We might see Olivia push both men away because both acted irrationally to save her life. HOWEVER, I have to say that aside from Huck's slaughter, Jake didn't *actually* work with/for terrorists and he didn't send innocent people to their deaths in an attempt to get her back. You know? Yes, I'm a Jake fan, but when we lay out the pros/cons of both of their plans to rescue her, Jake's had the potential for less bloodshed. And did have less bloodshed.

He's definitely damned either way, and the thing about Fitz/Olivia is that it really only works when he's in a position of power. There's a chance it can work after he leaves the White House at the end of this term, but to walk away from it all for her? Nah, that can't happen, for all the reasons she said. It negates everything she and everyone else did to get him there believing that's what he wanted.

Maybe? I kind of got the idea that it wasn't a "you're fired" so much as a "hey, we don't really know what to do with you" and he peaced out amicably.

Oh god, the Calling Sheriff Forbes bit had me bawling. No lie.

Guys, I totally forgot to mention Matt becoming a cop. Probably because who hasn't seen that coming since he's the lone non-supernatural in Mystic Falls. Tyler as his Barney Fife is kind of hilarious to me.

Miranda wicker

Yep. Annoying and predictable. It's okay though because it teases out Caroline and Stefan getting together. And yeah, maybe Alaric's marriage proposal was a little fast, but, meh. Stranger things in a show about vampires, you know?

Miranda wicker

I really, really want to watch them explore Bonnie/Damon as friends. With Liz gone, Damon needs a BFFF.

Scandal isn't exactly known for getting it right when it comes to the workings of the government or the military. When Jake escorts Olivia to the ball in his dress uniform, his bars are either incorrect for his position or on the wrong side. So, yeah.

Oh, it was terrible. Probably the worst episode in the entire series' history.
