Hm. This episode was mostly a collection of stuff that was painful to watch, apart from the stuff with Cyrus and North. I really thought Cyrus might kill his new boyfriend, right in the same house with his daughter. Fun tension. I also liked that Elizabeth is playing a deeper game, trying to outmaneuver Olivia in some manner.

Apart from that:
* Rowan's escape was irritating. He was fun for awhile, but the B613 stuff is old and tired, and his supernatural ability to weasel out of everything just annoys me at this point. I hope he's caught soon, so the show can move on to some other plot arc.

* Jake and Fitz arguing over Olivia was painful to watch. Not that I'm a big fan of either of them to begin with, but they're so much worse together.

* Huck's parenting skills are officially even harder to watch than Jake and Fitz. "Go buy ice cream on this dark street where we're keeping tabs on a murderer, you little scamp!" Astro's right to be worried about him being around their son, and it's tragic she doesn't even know the half of it. (I'm also annoyed that Huck doesn't have Olivia pull a few strings to offer her proof of his whereabouts. Seems like it would be trivial for OPA. Hell, seems like Huck should be able to swing it himself, apart from choking whenever the subject comes up.)
