THE LATEST | While in Chicago to testify at Alex’s former boss’ drug trial, the ladies have a warm-yet-fleeting moment (even though they’re separated by bars) as Alex begs her ex to lie under oath. “It’s the only way I can keep you safe,” she says gravely.
OUCH! | Against the advice of her lawyer (aka Larry’s dad), Pipes perjures herself by saying she never met the drug kingpin in question. But Alex tells the truth (!), earning her freedom (!!) and leaving a livid Piper to return to Litchfield alone.
THE FORECAST | We’re guessing no one’s going to want to go near Hurricane Piper in the coming episodes; girlfriend’s got some major rage against her glasses-wearing former love.
*Note: We’re only reporting on romantic updates from the Netflix series’ Season 2 premiere for now, so we won’t spoil those who didn’t binge-watch every episode.
THE LATEST | When President Heller calls him for information on Margot’s arms dealer, Jack demands that Kate accompany him out in the field.
WOWZERS! | Later, Jack’s plan to use her as a decoy only sort-of works, leaving Kate to pull a page out of the book of Bauer and escape her captors with nothing but her (exceedingly impressive) wits.
THE FORECAST | Fifty shades of grey skies. Though Kate was game when it came to being drugged up for the mission, we don’t think there’s any lady who takes kindly to being tortured and almost killed for real. Better hope Jack’s packed an umbrella.
THE LATEST | Post-coma Savi is back on her feet and already making a booty call to Dom, who’s thrilled to see her outside his door.
AWW! | Dom and Savi engage in some sweet, morning-after pillow talk — and giggle over the fact that their only prior time, um, together was that wah-chicka-wah in the office (which resulted in her ill-fated pregnancy). Speaking of work, Savi announces her intent to return to the firm, where new partner Dom will be her boss!
THE FORECAST | With sexy attorney Toni setting her sights on Dom, and Savi feeling a slight sting over estranged hubby Harry’s fling with Kyra With the Fun Bags (TM), things look cloudy for the reunited lovers.
THE LATEST | After Molly reminds Gus to omit the fact that he shot her from his testimony at the hearing, he bashfully tries to find the words to ask her out. It’s a good thing she’s quite the detective, because she quickly puts it together and confirms their date.
AWW! | In the year that flies by in the blink of an eye (OK, maybe five blinks) it appears that Molly and Gus have clearly been more than K-I-S-S-I-N-G: They’re not just married, but also expecting a child together.
THE FORECAST |Given that Molly hasn’t quite put the murders behind her, we see a cold front creeping up on these two lovebirds.
THE LATEST | Karma’s on a one-way cruise down denial as she completely ignores the girls’ sizzling kiss during the threesome. Instead, she suggests the pair stage a public break-up, a la other celebrity couples that have split amicably.
OUCH! | Amy finally snaps at Karma, calling out her BFF/secret crush on her narcissistic tendencies and obsession with Liam. This prompts Karma to apologize (via the school’s video announcements) and promise (privately, in person) that she would spend the rest of her life making it up to Amy — only they have to break up as a couple and go back to being best friends.
THE FORECAST | The strong winds ahead might be what give Amy the final push she needs to declare her feelings for Karma during the upcoming finale.
THE LATEST | Liam tells Karma he doesn’t want to break up “Hester’s cutest couple” and that he’s tired of all the drama.
AWW! | When Karma comes to Liam’s feelings tent and apologizes, he tells her that he wanted to be the reason she and Amy broke up — because he now has feelings for her.
THE FORECAST | If the roiling storm clouds that frame Karma and Liam’s horizontal mambo aren’t enough of a give away, expect stormy seas ahead as a love-struck Liam crashes Amy’s mom’s wedding in the next episode.
