In this episode, Fitz tries to call Mellie’s bluff except she’s not playing. She outs his affair to the press. Cyrus is stressed, James gets a new job, and Olivia is doing typical Olivia things like letting herself be “earned” in 22 minutes and calling people who disrespect her her best friend. Jake is an absolute pleasure and B613’s lead guy continues to make a nuisance of himself.
Quotes of the Podcast: “It just looks like she’s living out the wild, high school love that she never had. It’s a rollercoaster. You think because it makes you so emotional, it makes you cry and it hurts that that’s love, that’s how it’s supposed to work, that means it’s serious, that means it’s important and then you grow up and you realize that, no, that was just a phase, it was just a heavy infatuation. Maybe it’s love but it wasn’t a sustainable love.” – Alta
“I would have preferred, instead of 22 minutes sitting in silence, 22 minutes where he kept his mouth zipped and listened to her talk and listened to how he made her feel, listened to what she wants for her life, listened to her hopes and her dreams and insecurities. Anything, really.” – Sabrina
“Disrespecting somebody that I’ve chosen as the love of my life is disloyal to me.” – Sabrina
“This is not the conversation they should be having. “If you want me, earn me.” If they’re so ready to be together, why are they still talking like this? “If you want me, earn me.” “Do you still want me?” I would get it on a less intense ship but these two have no lives. All of their emotions come from each other.” – Alta
