I'm with you Ali, I like when they drag out. What I didn't enjoy was Britt's comments to Liz about Lucky. She knows nothing about Liz and Lucky, their past, etc but is sleeping with the man who slept with his brothers fiancé and is ok with him.
This "Liz on a pedestal" is ridiculous! Every time Liz brings up others wrong doings her own get thrown at her so she is most certainly not on a pedestal. Jason's me Ric are the only ones I can think of that have ever held Liz in such a high regard but that was because they cared about her. Nik has Britt in high regard even knowing about most of her lies, Dante has Lulu up there, etc. you care about someone, that's what you do.
It's funny Ben is suppose to be only a few months old and he's already had three baby daddies. It's Michael all over again. I'd say in rose scenarios, Britt and Carly should be the ones called out about having three baby daddies and lying about them, not Liz. ;)
Yeah with Lucky and Elizabeth, I'm always of the mindframe that these two have totally washed each other out on the "you did me wrong" scale. For every chip you put on Elizabeth's plate, a chip or two can be added to Lucky's plate to balance the scales. Yes, she's totally lied to him about Jake and Aiden. He also treated her like horse hockey while riddled with drugs, he was horrendous to her when under Helena's spell...HE SLEPT WITH HER SISTER!!!! I mean okay, he wasn't engaged to Elizabeth at the time but really, the way the story went when Niz came about, Lucky was seriously pressuring her. Surprising her with an impromptu engagement party when she hadn't said yes. Was she right to sleep with Nik? No (but it was smoking hot!!!) but when you look at the kharma scale for Lucky and Elizabeth...I just don't see either as a victim or an evil-doer
