oh dad. you had me up until that last sentence. really?! i want you and Fitz to go to war but not with Olivia as bait.
I know her dad is mad but he shouldn’t be taking it out on her. If we go with the current narrative, he’s the one who f’d up by getting tangled up with Maya. He’s the one who got duped. He’s the one who ordered the plane be shot down. Be mad at the late Big Jerry for getting Fitz’s record cleared. He actually sounds a bit like Mellie because she told him that Olivia was his Achilles heel and she was going to use it against him. She also threatened to tell air out all of the Grant’s dirty laundry. I could see Mellie wanting to use Liv as a weapon but Rowan is out of order here.
Not sure why Liv isn’t “running” though. She knows her dad doesn’t play. I feel like I missed something after that exchange or something didn’t make the final cut. Perhaps that is why she was so emotional when she went to see Fitz yet she didn’t tell him about her dad’s threats.
I don’t like that Rowan summonsed Leo either even though he was pretty menacing with him too. I wonder if he’ll give him some dirt on Fitz?
I get that he’s rather gruff when he talks to her however what do you expect from a parent, what is a parent to do when you entangle yourself in stuff that’s bound to mess with your future. Folk keep on talking about Fitz like he’s some CEO for some middle sized organisation. Dude is the most powerful man in the world. When he took that office he ceased to be an individual he epitomises the nation. His actions not only reflect on him they reflect on the office and determine how those who come after him will be viewed.
And then we have the mistress. The lowly mistress.
WE all know how things panned out for Marilyn Monroe when she started having ideas above her station.
So yeah, I get why Rowan is pissed with Liv. All that talk about divorce? Trust, she would have been bumped off if someone else was Command. Liv should count herself lucky that Rowan is her father. I still maintain he sent Jake to woo her, flirt with her, turn her head gently and then let her down. Jake either went in with his own agenda or he unwittngly fell in love with her. The sex tape was just a coincidence, He has his place wired up, Liv came in unexpectedly, shit happened then she ended up in hospital, there was drama beaucoup, old man Pope sent Charlie over, Charlie left his footprints all over the place and Jake realised Rowan was not playing so, he dished up the goods. I doubt if old man Pope was expecting to bag a sex tape in the bargain.
I get why Rowan is pissed this has got nothing to do with Patriarchy, you don’t take your child to the best schools and exhort her to be the best out of some bizarre notions, you just…. parent and hope that your child stays out of trouble; no stealing no lying, no falling in love with unsuitable boys y;know is all.
He already cussed her out about Fitz so I am just over the bluster. Liv is a grown woman and all of the ranting and raving in the world isn’t going to change her situation with Fitz. Now he’s threatening to what? Kill him? Have him kicked out of office? I’m over Rowan right now. I think he and Fitz are in a pissing match at this point. She found him in the park and was trying to be nice to him. That rant had no value to me. He can be disappointed if he wants to but his absence is probably one of the main reasons why she fell for Fitz in the first place. She’s Fitz’s mistress and his weapon. Two of the most powerful people in the world acting like fools.
