I love Peter-Eli in election and campaign mode, but I’m slightly worried that they’re going the route of Alicia getting back together with Peter. Weirdly, I don’t really mind if Alicia is just doing it for show to help Peter’s campaign, but if she truly has forgiven Peter and wants them to start over, that’s more disturbing and disappointing. The Alicia-Will breakup makes sense, the furtiveness of the relationship is not something Alicia can sustain for long, too much guilt floating around for the relationship to work out.
The elevator scene in last season’s finale is still brilliant, though. Alicia’s hesitation at first, when the elevator door kept opening and closing, Will holding her hand to reassure her, culminating with Alicia being the one to open the hotel room door.
