Jake has always been loyal to Liv. When he first started watching her per Fitz's request he really didn't understand who she was or what Fitz wanted with her but once he got to know her and after watching her for some time he grew fond of her. Since that time He's been real with Liv, speaking his mind to her even when it wasn't always in agreement with her. He's taught her how to defend herself and take care of herself-I hope she took notes. He never allowed Liv to string him along; he set boundaries in their relationships and he didn't allow Liv to completely consume him but he kept the task at hand in mind. Although he was with Liv for a time he gave her space and he knew where he stood. He didn't beg her to be with him but allowed her to make up her own mind. At the end of the Day Jake got the job done and has done a lot for many characters, even things they themselves didn't want to do. I hope that by the next episode it will pick up from him being found alive but badly wounded. -Monica/TVandPopcorn
