I wouldn’t mind Olivia switching personalities like that maybe once a season or so, but if they’re planning to make this a permanent thing now where she’s going to change back and forth in every episode every time a bell rings then I will become annoyed and disconnected.
I have to admit though, I get a certain amusement out of watching Olivia make subtly suggestive jokes and then chuckle like a dirty old man.
I was thinking it might work if Hurly filled in that position of being Bell’s vessel, if they are in fact planning to make him a permanent resident on the show. (Well…not Hurly, but the actor who played Hurly.)
Also, Peter has that big decision coming up. He has to choose between the two Olivias. You have to wonder what’s going on in his mind right now. “Hmm… My baby mama, or creepy old man…” Oh, wait, Peter doesn’t know yet. Shhh.
