I'm assuming that final line of today's show was Patrick asking for forgiveness from Robin -- perhaps because he intends to deliberately "lose" Jason during surgery. Now, even with new showrunners, we all know there's absolutely zero chance Jason won't pull through, but I still just wanted to put it out there in the universe that I for one would be totally willing to forgive Patrick if he went through with it. In case that helps at all.
In fact, I'm in an awfully forgiving mood today for a few reasons:
1. They decided to finally give Helena her fangs back!
Considering the history, having Helena pop in a couple times a year for Luke to flirt with her has hardly been compelling storytelling. A real threat? A real non-mob-related-or-freak-accident threat? I'll take it!
2. Helena getting her fangs back meant this happened:
Cassandra/Irina is dead dead dead! Damn, they came right in, gave her a silly and totally hilariously implausible backstory, and dispensed of her lickety-split. I love it! Is that mean? And then Ethan bawled and cried over her, which was also fun since he's known her like a month. Because true love, y'all.
It gave us the gift of that hilarity, about which I cannot complain.
