Caroline can't be compelled by Stefan, she's a vampire too. As for Caroline/twins storyline, from what I've read, it was only because of her pregnancy.
I'm sorry but how can you possibly be ok with someone being FORCED into surrogacy? Also, Caroline is a vampire and is surrounded by vampires, how come no one realized there are two beating hearts inside her? I don't remember how far along Jo has been with her pregnancy but it was at least a few weeks, plus a 3-4 months time-jump between seasons, given it's twins, she should be showing by now. A lot of shows covered real-life pregnancies and it's not only done with baggy clothes but also using "creative" angles of camera as well as creative writing - like in Grey's season 6 when Meredith donated liver to her father, Ellen Pompeo was pregnant then. Seriously, all it takes is some creativity, I think everything would be better than yet another supernatural pregnancy on a show about VAMPIRES. I'm sorry for the rant but...you know what. I am not sorry.
I agree that conspiracy to commit fraud means that more people are involved. But I don't think these emails were big enough to charge him and what Hardman has on Jack seems as something from the past to me, the case with the emails was pretty recent and Hardman had Jack in his pocket for some time now, my guess is at least. If anything, I have a feeling Mike's arrest might have sth to do with Hardman - I mean this man is like a gum stuck to a shoe, it just WON'T come off so it would make sense that he wanted revenge and pulled some shit at the last moment. But in the end I think the secret is really out...
