What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive................. The look Sam gave Bonnie as he came down the stairs after the confrontation with Annalise..............it's obvious--Sam was sleeping with her too. I'd like to know as well what got Frank and Lauren to the point of sleeping together.......... I also agree that the progression of the flashbacks to the night of the murder are progressing very slowly(we're still on the night of the murder for God's sake). There must be a reason for that.............but what is it? So there's not going to be a full season of this show? Or is there going to be a mid season finale???

I'm so curious about Sam and Bonnie... It's going to be a limited series, so 15 episodes will be a full season.

Limited series?!?!?! They need to add this to the regular line up.......

Interesting premise. In addition to "this week's case" we would also get "this season's homicide." The question is, can you really have multiple seasons of the same circle of people committing murder (or being an accessory to it) and then doing their best to try and get away with it? I don't know how sustainable that is--at some point, viewers are just gonna roll their eyes and stop watching.

I think each season is going to pinpoint one night and we will get the flashbacks that lead up to that night and when they meet it will go from there. The flashbacks are a way of showing that so much led up to that one night. I love when shows do things like that. It gives an added sense of anticipation of "How in the world did 5 law interns end up with a dead body? And what could possibly have led them to there?"

This show keeps getting better. I laughed a lot during this episode. Love Rebecca and Tedward.

Alice Sam doesn't research anymore because he doesn't have Bobby to do it for him. At least that's the excuse he gave for not looking for Dean in season 8.

Am I alone in thinking that Mellie will kill Jake?

She might thank him since she was grateful that Jerry's death had meaning and won Fitz the presidency. She has kind of gone off the deep end. Although, in some ways, trying to make sense of the loss of someone is understandable. People are often saying that a person's death had some meaning, that they did not die in vain. I am not of that school.

I agree. I'm not sure about Mellie either but she is not thinking straight. When she said those words to Fits she looked like one who needs help immediately. I wonder what the writers want. Yes, she"s grieving but it was more than enough. There is plenty to do, charity, fund raising etc. pls give Mellie some work so she can feel useful and she can be jealous in the mean time :)

I do not think the writers have been kind to Mellie. She has gone through a lot in her past with the rape by Fitz's father that destroyed their marriage. To me the marriage appears to be more than a friendship or marriage of convenience. It would not have lasted as long as it did otherwise. Many politicians these days have been divorced and it has not hurt them politically.So something had to keep it going that was deeper. Obviously, her choice to remain silent did not help, but that is not unusual in such cases, and would Fitz have believed her? So the result was that they grew more and more distant over time. Emotionally, she is all over the place (a victim of trauma) and hopefully her transformative moment will make her stronger and a character we can respect more. At this point many viewers are unsympathetic to her and short change her resilience.

You are right about that but this is not the case. Jerry was murdered. It would had some meaning if he would have saved someone's life (this is just an example).

Understood. Sacrificing oneself for the good of others is heroic. I would say this in Fitz's defense.If he had to choose between Jerry's life or the presidency he would choose to save Jerry and give up the presidency. Not so sure about what Mellie would do if given the choice. Cyrus would choose the presidency and then whine about his choice.

How is she going to do that? Jake is B613.

Still not sure why Olivia believes a word her father says.

Martinelli
@ Fudgefase

Because he was right about her mom and I guess she believes him (occasionally). She doubted him at first, even accused him of killing Harrison and holding Jake.

When I look at the pounding Fitz gave Jake and what he was saying to taunt him, and back to the scene where Fitz said the same things to her father, all I can think of is that to all these men, she is just a prize, she has been put on a pedestal and they are all falling over themselves to possess her. It may have begun as love for Fitz and Olivia, but its now an obsession. No one should have this woman if its not him. For Jake, its a game for him, trying to out ego the president. As for her father, only God knows what he wants.
But I love the promo for next week. It's about time Abby gladiated. Who is raising the child Cyrus adopted or social services took her away? That OPA office needs more staff.

i actually really liked this episode, especially laurel's part. I find her more tolerable than any of the others right now.

I am a Callie fan…not so much (if at all) an Arizona fan. The fighting was too much. I found myself switching to football and totally forgetting I was watching Grey's. Didn't we see Callie with Owen in a dream sequence somewhere in the past? Hmmmmm!

Another fantastic episode,TVD writers have really cleared up the mess they made last season!!
