Introducing insanity like this is just lazy writing, it allows you to do anything with no need for believability. Again, like a telenovela.
There are ways to use insanity that maintains believability, it seems like the writers are struggling to keep the plot interesting, and are throwing out believability to do so. To be fair, this is fairly common for shows after their third season, but I expected more from this show.
