It's really not about whether I want this triangle to happen or not. It's happening. Look at the writing. Olivia goes back and forth between Jake and Fitz and that makes it a triangle.

And I don't hate Fitz mainly because of the affair. I don't hate him at all. I just think that he's not a strong man and has been handed a lot in his life without really working for it and is also sort of spineless unless he's standing up for what inevitably turns out to be a bad decision.

We don't yet know the extent of Mellie and Andrew's past, but if I had to guess I'd say that Mellie didn't cheat but will now.

I like where you're going with James and Cyrus working together. Now I want to rewatch to see what Cyrus said when that microphone was in his office to see if he's setting Sally and Leo up.

I'm guessing that when Stefan snapped his neck and Damon "died" the spell broke. Too bad Enzo wasn't smart enough to try that. (And really, that's what Enzo should've kept doing and what Damon should've LET Enzo keep doing so Damon wouldn't eat him.)

I agree with you in general, but since it's a sci-fi show, I can handwave that they've created standards of perfection for each Chrome. It's not that they're all perfect, it's just that they're genetically engineered according to their parents' specifications of perfection. The guy with Stahl even said that it wasn't a flawless process since his brother becamse a sculptor.

I definitely shipped them in season 1. I don't so much care now who she ends up with, but I'm just calling that she will end up with Jack. The writing on the wall about that is pretty clear.

Hell yes, she did! Loved every minute of her tonight!

The love "quadrangle" HAS been abysmal. It's been a constant set-up/tear-down to make the various relationships viable and it does feel forced.

The Niko thing and Aiden is just...weird. If Emily's not going to be with Aiden, they need to write him out of the show. Don't divide our screen time with Niko avenging Takeda and Emily and the Graysons. Just focus on Emily.

I also think he got pissed at her when he found out she'd lied, but I also think there's a part of him who is totally on board with her Revengenda and is secretly excited to contine the takedowns, especially now that he's even more inside than he was before. I'm team Emily/Jack as end game, but I don't at all like how they've been shoved back together this season. It worked in season 1.

That WAS a funny exchange. Definitely a highlight.

I can sort of handwave the clones as reasonable doubt thing, I think, with the fact that maybe there's some loophole futuristic law about it?

But also, if Ethan Avery said "my clones did it!" or mentioned anything about the clones, he's admitting to having clones of himself in the first place, which is illegal. And while he's an egomaniac, the clones did see themselves as family, so their desire to protect themselves and one another doesn't seem *too* sloppy to me.

I loved everything about Maya. I'd like to see her again.
