Mellie checking on a shaken up Olivia and then giving an inspirational pep talk that she won’t cancel her inauguration. I absolutely love this scene, which perfectly illustrated how much Liv’s influence has rubbed off on Mellie. Plus it was such a refreshing change that Mellie checked on Liv instead of Fitz.
I keep seeing all these posts where people are super upset with the kings cage epilogue and I’m just like lol ok I saw it coming a mile away and I hope my baby, mare, goes off and destroys them all in the next book and maybe kisses Cameron or some other cute lady along the way
So I’m rereading acomaf I have so many new headcanons so fancasts and diversity. Like amren is obviously coded as Asian. That’s a given. But what if Illyrian’s were black? Like their war camps and treatment are lowkey stereotyped like slavery but with the addition of literal war. So I’m thinking all Illyrian’s could be black, making Rhys the son of a white father and a black mother. Which would even further divide his parents and would make sense with his father’s “privileged” background. And it would also fit Azriel’s shadowsinger gift, like his skin would blend right in with the shadows he can move. So basically Mor is the token white one of the group. Like Illyrians are literally another race apart from High Fae so why couldn’t they be a different color? As if SJM meant it like this tho).
Olivia is gonna run B613. This is a development. However we all know that if there’s anyone to succeed Rowan, it’s Liv. It’s great to see her finally embracing her destiny by becoming Command. However i have a feeling that we’re going to be seeing Liv wearing the Black Hat a lot more than ever.
So Mellie names Luna Vargas as her vice president. I like it. Well done, Mellie.
Almost Liv is finally handling that cunt by having her arrested. I absolutely love this. Now this is the Olivia that we’ve come to know and love, handling things, protecting her girlfriend friends and putting bitches in check.
Cyrus getting the news from that backstabbing bitch Abby that he’s going to be released immediately.
Also Liv and Fitz sharing a hug. Thankfully it was nothing more,
BTW if you’re wondering, i haven’t forgiven Abby for her traitorous actions and don’t think i will. My love for Red is gone because of what she did, turning against Liv, who literally saved her life. She could save a bunch of orphan children and it still wouldn’t get me to forgive her anytime soon.
We got a little Mellivia with Mellie coming to the office to apologize to Liv and telling her that her decision to say no saved Fitz, which is very ironic, because Fitz falling apart as evident by him walking off his show live.
