They're definitely addicted to one another, him to her moreso than her to him, I think. She doesn't NEED him to find happiness. At least, I don't think she does. But his world completely stops when she's not in it and that's not healthy. It's an obsession and not a relationship.

I love Joe Morton and Rowan Pope is a great villain, but I'm sort of tired of seeing him win.

I'd actually sort of love to see someone come to Abby for help with a crisis and see her go up against Olivia. Abby's being wasted at the White House.

He does reduce her. He makes her into nothing more than a sex object, something he can get jealous about. He can't have her but neither can anyone else.

I'm nearly certain he's going after Jake not just because Jake *may have* killed his son but because Jake was with Olivia. Everything in Fitz' world IS about Olivia. Even when it isn't.

I agree completely with your opening sentence. Were the first two seasons between them steamy? Yes, definitely. But we have NEVER seen them in even a semi-normal situation to even assess if there's anything more between them than smoking hot chemistry. Fitz talks about being a soccer dad in Vermont when, hello, what about the kids you already have? Olivia's never going to be the kind of woman who settles down and makes jam. It's all a pipe dream.

I do point out Fitz's flaws more often than Jake's, but that's because--for right now--Jake makes the better boyfriend. (Not necessarily the better man. He's a trained killer who will actually kill people. But then again, Fitz will kill people too, so...) And I don't necessarily care if he's likable. I don't like their relationship and the way it's portrayed as an obsession instead of a partnership.

I like to LOOK at Ben. He's great for that.

I think Abby's on her way back to OPA. She's clearly disillusioned with what it means to be White House press secretary judging by the way she showed up on Olivia's doorstep.
