To Marry Fitz or Not?
19 April 2016 | by DCSassyQueenSee all my reviews

Once again and probably always, Olivia does not know what she wants. The only way out of the investigation was to marry Fitz, which I thought was best option. Even though, no one should be "trapped" into marriage, I thought this marriage would save many lives from being damaged, but Olivia does not want it. Fitz told her she will never be ready and I agree. I mean you have the "supposed" man of your dreams and you are hesitating to marry him to help others when others have sacrifice a part of themselves for you. I think she just loves the idea of being with Fitz because it is "dangerous" and Scandalous. Of course, she found a way out. Lucky for her. Fitz and Olivia are both a mess, but hey... at least they have undeniable chemistry?

Favorite Moments

*Anything Jake, especially Jake telling Olivia off when she called him to ask him about her marrying Fitz... I mean the nerve she had.

*The ending when the jurors get served. Haha.

*Mellie finally getting what she "think" she wants.*
