Pretty sure I didn't drool over Jake once in this review. Yes, Fitz used the phone sex to distract her, but he initiated the idea of sex before she asked about the suicide attempt. Third, Jake didn't call Olivia a booty call. He said HE would be a booty call for her, and has repeatedly said, much like Fitz, the ways in which he would like to please her. So don't twist what I'm saying since I never once compared the relationships in this particular review. Yes, I'm aware of my mythology. Helen of Troy was stolen from her home and rightful husband and a war was waged because of it, a war which lasted a decade because every suitor who wanted to marry her before she made her choice vowed to protect her and align themselves with the man she chose should the help be needed. Tom calling her Helen of Troy most certainly was not a reference to Helen's father but to the fact that men ride into battle for her freely knowing they will probably die, some even leaving their wives and families behind to do it. (See: Odysseus/Ulysses.) I do agree with you that Tom's monologue opened her eyes to the fact that her father is a monster whose sole desire in life is to control others. That's where she found the impetus to have him stabbed for his confession.

Olivia wanting to keep Fitz on the hook and Fitz controlling her aren't mutually exclusive. Both can be (and are) plausible.

I loved the reveal that Olivia had Tom stabbed to get him to confess and made him think it was her father. Loved. Not sure why, as that's a pretty dastardly thing to do, but yeah, loved it.

I think Olivia runs because that simple life in Vermont isn't what she wants. She's scared to be "normal." It's easier for her if there's less promise of commitment. That's why things didn't work out with Edison.

If you rewatch the ep, as Beth and Noah leave the hospital, they pass a row of cars with white crosses painted in the back windows. She was taken by the people at the hospital, but I don't think she was taken in the manner they described.

Now I wonder how much money David has squirreled away for himself...

Yeah, I didn't hate this episode, it just wasn't my favorite. It had some necessary moments for plot development, snarky one-liners from Nolan, and Charlotte and Emily beginning to mend fences. And I've always thought Jack was a great looking guy, but I think I prefer him in plaid.

Miranda wicker

I'm not sure we've ever learned that Nolan's father abused him, but meh, it's not something I'm hung up on having revealed in that manner. I wasn't happy with Charlotte teling Daniel either, but as previous commenter said, it certainly makes things interesting if Margaux outs Emily. I don't think David trusts Jack either, and after seeing the double infinity in that garage, Jack certainly doesn't trust David.

I would also love for Margaux to out Emily somehow because you're right, there's no drama if Emily walks up to David and goes "Hey, dad! What's shakin'!?" Daniel and Margaux exposing her would be great, even if I want Daniel to close the Emily Thorne chapter of his life forever.

I WAS excited for Charlotte to get a decent story, but then they shipped her off to rehab instead of having her stick around and do something useful. Or did they? I'm mostly curious about that note from Emily.
