So…I finally got to watch Payback last night, almost a week late, and it was pretty damn awesome.

But…I’m a little confused…in a way that I think the show wants us to be. Mainly, I get that Ferris was in this because of a personal vendetta against Kensi, and that he and Sharov were also part of whatever corrupt thing was going on in Afghanistan that the team was inadvertently interfering in. Joelle, it seems, was pulled into their scheme as a monitor/informant/insider to keep tabs on the team via Callen (and maybe a bit via the Hannas). She didn’t seem to have a personal stake in taking down the NCIS team, but was willing enough to go along with Sharov and Ferris’ plans (hence pulling the gun on Hetty in the boatshed) though she was conflicted about it (hence her breaking things off with Callen).

The thing that is really unclear to me in all of this is Sabatino’s real role - in some ways, if he was the one who really wanted to take the team down and expose the OSP office as “corrupt,” it makes a bit more sense of the whole thing. In other words, him being the puppetmaster who pulled everyone else in - and then Ferris went off on his own personal vendetta - makes a bit more sense. Sabatino’s anger at the team could have gone all the way back to when Snyder was killed - he could, reasonably in his eyes, blame Hetty and her team for that. If he’s not the head of it all, I’m not sure the others’ motives line up together as neatly. He does seem to be in the right position to connect to Sharov and Ferris’ shady dealings in Afghanistan, and even to put Joelle in the path of Sam and Michelle, and by extension, Callen.

He sold the idea that he was trying to expose CIA corruption somewhat effectively during his interrogation, but then…if that were true…why run at the end of the episode? My money’s on him knowing much more than he said, and, if not being in control of the whole mole operation, then being much closer to the top of it than he claimed. The episode seemed to treat the mole arc as being somewhat solved/wrapped up…but I don’t think it really is.

This is likely a too-long ramble about overly obvious things…but yeah.

I told myself that I was going to get up early this morning and do homework all day, but instead I slept until 11 and did no homework. But I think I needed the sleep, and I had a good day.

I’ve been super bored with food, which is dangerous, so I went to Penn Station for lunch and then bought groceries that are less boring. Then I looked up art ideas to use my crinoids for. Then I went to self-defense class, which was awesome. Then I went on a date with J.

We saw Get Out, and it was SO GOOD! Like seriously, The Best. And J is so great. She seems like she wants to take things slow, and I do too, so that’s perfect. After the movie, she asked if she could hug me, so like, yay consent! She said we should go on another date soon. YAY!

AU where Mandy and Jenny put out any fire in the Haus before it can even be noticed by the Boys. 

Sometimes it’s not an easy job.

 It’s April 26th, why do you need to be setting off fireworks you hot mess of a human being? All the Haus sees is a broken window as a large firework blasts through the door.

And there was that one time where Ransom went a little crazy with the retail therapy and bought, like, 50 yankee candles from the girl going door to door fundraising. You don’t light them all at once boy, ffs. Mandy and Jenny are pleased when Jack pulls out the Sin Bin and makes him put in 20 bucks for the unholy mixing of scents which permeated every inch of the Haus. 


They get why the new kid likes the oven. It was really the first thing that helped him connect with his teammates in a way that didn’t terrify them. They saw the way he entered the house with his shoulders hunched up almost all the way to his ears, afraid that something could go wrong at any moment. Then he saw the kitchen, and decided that he would make it his. So yeah, Mandy and Jenny get it. 
But Good ol Betsy is a becoming something of a hazard. Mandy and Jenny had to snuff out a flame that would have burned the whole house down in no time. Bitty would only see a burned dish waiting for him when he returned. 

After a night of arguing, Mandy and Jenny agreed that it would be best that Betsy be put to rest. The oven doesn’t turn on after then no matter how hard Dex tries. 

Summers were quiet. Everyone was out and Mandy and Jenny could just relax for three whole months without too much responsibility. Really, they’ve done their best to try to give these boys common sense. They’ve added several shows about fires onto Jacks list of “to watch” documentaries, which should be noted is hand written and very meticulous. After he watched them, Jack made the Haus do one fire drill. One. Jack woke them up at 3am and had made them practice evacuating three different times. Because “No Bittle you do not need to your recipe book with you it’s a drill”
“You said that you have to practice like it’s the real deal, Jack. I’m not letting moomaw’s secrets go like that”. 

And the danger of fire has been a lot less since Jack got that fancy new Betsy 2.0. That thing works so nicely. 

So yeah, summer. Not much to worry about that they haven’t seen before. The Haus is quiet, and then it’s a little less quiet as Bittle enters the Haus, changes out of his suit and into his comfy clothes and enters Chowder’s new room to finish up some laundry. He doesn’t make it very far before Mandy and Jenny realize that he is not Ok. 

His face is all blotched and he’s sniffling. Mandy and Jenny don’t really know how to cheer him up. Fixing heartbreak is hard to do non-corporeally. So they look at his phone and queue up the song that he’s always singing in the shower. Maybe that will help him just cry it out. 

The song comes on and he immediately blasts it to where that’s the only thing he can hear around him. There’s nothing that Mandy and Jenny can do to get Bittle to notice when Jack bursts up the stairs and shouts his name into his room. All they want to do is scream “he’s over here!” at Jack, who is looking into Bitty’s room like he’s already making a sad mixtape titled “Love Lost” in his head. 

Then there’s a sniffle from Bitty, and Jack turns around. And he kisses him. And kisses him again. And again. 

For the first time in 22 years, Mandy and Jenny don’t have to worry about the sparks flying in the Haus.
