Riveting
8 October 2015 | by (Everman, TX, United States) – See all my reviews

An intense episode that works to redraw the lines in established relationships. As always, the teleplay succeeds in taking the audience on a riveting roller coaster of emotions. Every time you think they come to an agreement, the script flips. I enjoyed seeing Liv happy for about two seconds, and love the way Fitz (the leader of the free world) matches to the beat of her drum every time. If only people could exhibit that kind of respect more in real life.

Liv gets a moment with Mellie, and for as much as I loathe the woman, she certainly put things into perspective. They continuously ask the hard questions: what have you sacrificed? Do you understand why I'm giving up? I actually felt sympathy for Nellie, which was a feat unto itself.

Abby finally calls Liv out, and I loved the way they wordlessly understand each other. Cyrus finds a way to be genuine for half a second, and Fitz was much colder than I expected. I anticipate based on the timber of the music that more atrocious things will be coming from his direction shortly. That scene was so well-acted, I thought he was going to go to the roof and jump off as they filmed the interview. Well done for not being predictable.

I didn't really follow the last bit where Jake visits Rowan... Couldn't make out what he said in the end, but it's obviously important.
