The show the past two seasons has been portraying this stuff as "funny" when sorry, these are crimes and in a town like this, they be up a creek and forever shamed. Same with Cooper's money situation, I got he didn't want to end up like the waiter guy, who is basically in this late 40s and being manipulated by his rich parents until they die. At some point he have to realize they aren't going to give him shit. In a way, good for Cooper realizing the life he has been living all these years is going to leave him just a joke later in life. Sadly, Oliver seems to not have gotten that in his head. Of course, same goes for Katey still saying Greg's ideas are stupid, and he has to be "dirty" with politics, but then gets upset when she screws him over. They keep writing Katie that she "wants it both ways" and then when it backfires goes: "Ooppps" then proceeds to do it again the following week.
