coveops

Okay, so I know Matthew Morgan’s disappearance was crucial to the series and that it was the big driving force throughout all six books that that without it nothing would’ve been the same and Joe wouldn’t have taught CoveOps and Cam never would have met Josh and she’d never write about the circus but I just get so angry when I think about the spy world with Matthew Morgan in it.  Like:

  • Joe Solomon walking in on that first day and Cam writing a letter home to Matt saying, “idk Dad this guy’s pretty shady” and Matt writes back like, “Yeah, he sounds pretty evil you should definitely do that thing I taught you with the honey to catch him and interrogate him.  Definitely.”
  • Joe telling Matt about his stupid kid and “God she just vanishes. I can’t teach her anything if I can’t see her Matt.  Matt?  Are you listening to me?  MATT.  This is your fault Matthew–stop teaching your daughter things before I teach them.”
  • Joe telling Matt about his super mega talented kid and “I don’t know how she did it.  Honest to God.”
  • Abby and Matt knocking each other around in the P&E Barn.
  • Rachel and Matt getting caught making out in the P&E Barn.
  • Joe asking Matt for help with the CoveOps final in LYKL and Cam fighting her dad.  Snide remarks would ensue.
  • Joe setting up Cam and Zach in DC (bc Joe Solomon was the biggest Zammie shipper in the whole series–do not even get me started) and Matt in the background like “idk, Joe.  Zach is a little too rugged and handsome.  What about that Jonas kid?  He looks nice.  Why don’t you have him tail her instead?”  and “Quiet, Matthew.  Let me do my job.”
  • Matt seeing Cam in that red dress.
  • Matt seeing Cam in that red dress.
  • Matt stopping by the Gallagher Academy to see his girls and Cam walking in on Matt and Rachel mercilessly making fun of Joe.
  • Alternatively, Cam walking in on Joe and Matt making fun of Rachel (but Rachel definitely heard and now someone is going to be put on dish duty, Joseph).
  • Matt helping Joe with dish duty
  • Prank wars.  So many prank wars.
  • The runNING JOKES ABOUT HIS NEBRASKAN TWANG.
  • Papa Matt so damn tired of the Circle messing with his family, like, if Matt had been around the Circle would have been taken down in two days, honestly.
  • Matt crying as Cam walks and moves her tassel to the other side.
  • Matt freaking out because ‘Is that a grey hair–Rachel, that’s a grey hair” on the same day Cam comes home from her first mission.
  • Matt laughing when his daughter tells him “its classified”
  • Godfather Solomon.  Why in the HECK didn’t we get to see more of Godfather Solomon?

gallagher girls classified week: day 2 - favorite romantic ship

I looked from my mother to my CoveOps teacher—my father’s best friend. Once upon a time, he had sworn to take care of me and my mom should anything ever happen to my dad. And he’d done that.

531. When Zach asked if Liz was a lesbian, she told him the next day to stop by her dorm to pick up a 12-page essay about bisexuality with a photo of her being swept off her feet by Bex while kissing as the title. Zach read it all, then sent her a paragraph review, congratulating her. Now Bex tells him the advantage of using PDA in CoveOps.

I don’t really know why but I’ve always loved the part in CMH where the CoveOps class is in Roseville and Joe is asking everyone random CoveOps related questions on comms when he asks Zach how many windows overlooked the square from the west side and Zach is just kinda staring into Cammie’s eyes as he says “fourteen” and doesn’t look away at all and that’s just always been a favourite moment of mine I don’t even know why I just love it

Gallagher Girls Meme: ten anything - Mr Solomon’s Words of Wisdom [7/10]

“ Counter-surveillance isn’t something you learn from a book – it’s not about theory. It’s about the prickly feeling on the back of your neck, the little voice in your head that tells you when something isn't quite right.”

“Learn your legends early. Learn them well. The split second it takes you to recall something your cover identity would know is the split second in which very bad people can do very bad things. Most of all, remember that going into deep cover does not mean approaching subjects. It means putting yourself in a position where the subject approaches you.”

“Covert operations. The clandestine service …. It’s a life of being where you’re not supposed to be – of doing what you’re not supposed to do. It means getting in, ladies. And most important, it means getting out.”

“Ladies, this is a business of alliances. You may not like these people. You may hate these people. These people may represent everything you hate, but all it takes is one thing, ladies, one thread of commonality to form a bond in our lives. To make an ally.”

Willa Holland as Cammie and Kaya Scodelario as Macey.
