Can I just say how much I love this man! I love that he asked SR if that scene with Liv and Jake 222 was in the script! I love that he finds it difficult to watch Olake love scenes. I love that he questions Jakes motives while also dismissing him (“I appreciate he’s fallen in love with Olivia but who wouldn’t” a.k.a “she’s mine so get to stepping”! I love that he acknowledges Mellie’s capabilities & intrigue as a character but is also aware that her and Fitz should not married. I love how he flat-out wants Olitz to get married and have smushy babies:)
Tony is so heavily invested in the character as much as we are and doesn’t want to see his precious Livvie shacking up with anyone else! That’s love bitch (& no, not the fangirling Terry type of love but the love that Tony has for Olitz…needing them to be together just like us fans have prayer circles for their re-union)
On another note, I figured out why I despise Jake so much (apart from the obvious). But yeah Jake and Liv don’t fit well together physically. Jake like Liv also has big lips and when they kiss something is just off! When Olitz kiss it’s sheer perfection, they were made for each other…they just physically fit! And then there is also the emotional, intellectual connection. What are Jake and Liv going to talk about, seriously? how many people he has killed? Jake is more like Huck in terms of the relationship he could have with Liv. They both “walk on the dark side of the moon” and could be good friends but lovers? Nah…Liv will get bored really quickly. She likes powerful men…I mean Senator Davis?? The only thing missing with him was that deep emotional connection but as far as intellect goes they were a match. She could have been “content” with him…senator’s wife and all.
Perhaps it’s just me but Jake is like a puppy to Liv…she feels for him, is grateful to him for saving her life & wants to take care of him coz her fixer instincts kick-in but she’ll always wear the pants in that relationship. It won’t go anywhere. I, as Jake, would certainly not want to be in a relationship where I know my partner is pining away for another. That’s some Mellie fucked up shit—- a guaranteed life of ceaseless despair…NOPE»>”This park also used to be a zoo”
