He got a brain tumor. Huge arc for the character, one of the saddest deaths of the entire series. But not shocking.
Mark Green's death was sad and tragic, yes, but it wasn't shocking. We knew it was coming as that was the reason he went to Hawaii with his family. He wanted to make happy memories with Liz and his daughters before his passing.
I was in the beginning. I'm not a Jemily fan. I would actually love to see her end up with Ben now that Aidan is dead. She needs someone NOT a part of that world if she's going to live free of it all. But if the writers are going to make Jemily happen, as it seems they are, I'm going to find a way to deal with it. I don't really have a choice.
I disagree that Jake and Russell and their relationship with Olivia is the same. She explicitly said that the reason she's with Russell is because things aren't complicated. He was straight up a booty call from day one whereas Jake was sent in to woo and watch her. That's when he developed real feelings for her and vice versa. Russell may be doing the same, but she's not reciprocating where he's concerned. I really think she tried to get away from DC with Jake because she knew that being with Fitz was costing too much, but with Russell she's numbing what she feels as a result of her kidnapping ordeal. She's using both men for sex, but not for the same reasons. Jake was an attempt to make her life different. Russell is just an escape.
I'm definitely on board with bringing Marcus Miller into the fold. I think he'd keep them all honest.
I'm definitely loving Susan Ross! Thanks for sharing that link. The photos haven't hit the ABC press site, so I legit thought last night was the end for Jake.
They explained that the reason the Heretics can exist is because they're like Kai. In order to have power, they need to have something to draw from, otherwise, they're not really witches. That's the loophole in how they're able to be both. As siphoners who became vampires, they now have a steady stream of magic from which to draw since magic was used to create vampires and all vampires are descendants of The Originals.
Oooh, I hadn't thought about the fact that Lily knew Enzo's song. Now I wonder if maybe she tried to replace Damon and Stefan with him and then had to drop him off when she thought she might eat him. I like what you're doing there! And yes, Damon saved his brother, not Lily. Furthermore, the Heretics are going to be great. I really like that twist!
I do agree with you that the news she's leaving made EVERYTHING to do with the character last night seem to force her in the direction of an exit. It was honestly hard to watch. I wish we didn't know she was going. I think the kiss interruption thing isn't because the actors don't want to kiss on screen (they're professionals) but because the writers are using it as yet another thing to divide them.
I think I'm weird in that I like the witchy aspects because otherwise we just have vampires embroiled in "do I eat people or bunnies" drama and then we'll end up fighting the Vulturi in a totally anti-climactic battle. We need the witches to give the vampires something to fight against.
