Olivia visits Jake
Taking Daddy Pope and Abby’s suggestions into consideration, Fitz decides to allow Olivia to see Jake. She walks in to find a man who has been physically and emotionally defeated. His eye is swollen shut and he has scars and dried blood all over his face. Olivia might have had some questions she wanted to ask but Jake, believing he’s going to die, tells her to make sure he sends the money in his bank account to his mother. It was a heartbreaking scene. And the final nail in the coffin came when he told Olivia what we’ve all been thinking for some time now. “We both know in the end, you’re not going to choose me. And that’s okay.”
Such a shame when a woman loves a lesser man. Someone noted the difference in Jake’s conversation with Daddy Pope’s and Fitz’s. Fitz told Daddy Pope he knows how Olivia tastes and Jake told Daddy Pope he loves her.
