If you're still trying to recovering from the brutal beating that Jake took in the latest episode of Scandal, we're here to help. Sit back with a cup of coffee and clear your mind of all the bad things by reminding yourself of all the ways that Jake is one amazing man.
He's been locked up in a pit and tortured by Olivia's father and now soundly beaten by her other lover, and yet Jake always seems to get back up.
To everyone else, the president is a man not to be trifled with. But to Jake, he's just an old friend who also sleeps with his girlfriend, and Jake is never afraid to stand up to him.
If Jake was your boyfriend, you'd never have to worry about anything ever again. You could sleep peacefully knowing that he'd kill anything and anyone who ever tried to hurt you.
Seriously, have you ever once seen the man afraid? Maybe he's shown concern over Olivia when she was in danger, but fear has never shown in his eyes.
Whether it's the president or the father of his girlfriend (who also happens to be the leader of the organization that put him in a hole for months), Jake doesn't ever let anyone intimidate him.
Have you seen the man with his shirt off? Case closed.
Admit it, you know you've watched him kiss Olivia and wished you were in her shoes.
Sure, we've only seen him play basketball against Fitz, but we're confident Jake is great at any sport he picks up.
Once Jake gives you his loyalty, that's it. The only way you can lose it is if you are a heinous person (Command, we're looking at you) who deserves to lose it.
Jake knows everything there is to know about combat and can whip just about anyone's butt. He's also a cold-blooded killer — but only when he needs to be.
Remember that time Jake shot James, but then sat with him until he died, reassuring the poor guy that he wasn't alone and his daughter would be safe? That's called heart, and Jake has it in spades.
With all the terrible things Jake has had to do, he still manages to make us laugh with his wry sense of humor. He really is the whole package.
Jake didn't hesitate to go with Olivia to her island escape when she needed it, and we have no doubt he would have stayed with her forever. That's a great guy, right there.
