I absolutely disagree with the other reviews on this show. I was disgusted with Alicia's character for the last few shows. How can she not get how wrong it is to turn her back on someone who gave her a chance. The way she handles everything was petty and immature and to be honest, in complete contradiction to what we love about her character. Her lack of acceptance of what she has done is absurd and the thought of her working with a bunch of 20 -something years old, leaves her looking like she is settling and desperate. The unethical decisions by her husband, not to mention corruption and illegal use of power, makes me lose all respect for him as well. They care only about themselves and that is not in line with who their characters have been throughout the show. I was super disappointed and this was one of the first times that it was easy to turn Netflix off. I think I will take a break from this show for a while.
