So with Elijah seemingly on the brink of death, Jemma is unsure what to do with her marriage, but they start “courting” each other – and finally, finally get together over a blind-folded game of chess. Except her own husband! He is by far my favorite character in the series and I feel bad for him when I see how many women use him, or dump him, or use him and then dump him.

You have to read to find out. WHY did Duchsss keep a mistress? You were worried what your mistress would think if you said no?! It’s like being Superman, with power suits for both lives.
