Remy with hair! Remy with his parents! Remy unable to bribe his way into getting what he wants!

... oh, Remy.

He's the character I most want free of the Underhill clusterfuck, but it's obvious it's never going to happen. (Unless he dies, I guess.) I am undecided on how I feel about his relationship with Jackie (probably because he seems largely undecided as well), so I'm not sure that I buy Leann's scare tactics. Is Jackie still married?

Tusk did not look like Tusk to me at first. (Who else would be wandering around in the woods looking at birds but him, though? No one, that's who. I am not sure what confused me.)

Oh! And that Doug and Seth thing. I think I shouted "Jesus fucking Christ!" when that happened, and my dog was completely startled and angry with me. I hear you, dog; I am so tired of stupid Doug, too.

Jackie is still married.

I totally forgot about the Doug and Seth thing, but yeah, that was pretty batshit.

The hallucination bits are not that interesting. I'd rather watch the Sopranos episodes where Tony was in a coma.

Also, it took me a few episodes to remember about Jackie's being married. I mean, why would she invite Remy to come to California during her campaigning?

I'd forgotten she was married also, so I was trying to figure out why they were being so sneaky and it wasn't making sense, until finally she mentioned her husband.

Why is VP Donald Blythe so woefully unprepared to take over as president? Of course it does make sense given FU's (shitty) leadership style. His VP ought to have been kept informed of everything and been involved in the decision making process. And it really does defy belief that he'd be leaning on the FLOTUS, regardless of how intelligent she is.

So now the FBI has looked into Zoe and Peter's deaths and found nothing. For crying out loud. I'm pretty damn sure *I* could find something if I had access to the kind of information they do and had been given the kind of push in the right direction that Lucas's suicide note gave them. However, at least the accusation is a matter of public record now and some people will surely start looking into it.

Die, Francis, die. And Doug, you can go too. Basically I want the main players to all get what's coming to them, but I suppose it won't happen this season at least.
