Again, I felt for Fitz, cannot connect the dots with Olivia again this week. Thought the crying at the end was too underwhelming. After the segment with the judge, I expected some feeling of devestation from Olivia. I did not see any indication that Fitz' declaration of love meant anyhing to her. No tug, no push and pull, nothing. Does she love him, or is she just hot for him?
I don't understand everyone's feeling about Fitz being abusive to women--Bad situation it is true, but certainly there is a bit of blame to go around. Mellie is no ingenue and Olivia knew exactly what she was doing when she entered the hotel room with him on the trail. Loved these women together--Shakespearean drama indeed.
Abby annoys me and I cannot wait to her get her comeuppance! Huck needs someone--could this be a love connnection with him? I hope so.
I actually miss the Stephen character. Love the judge as well.
d end up getting herself into a lot of trouble.
Finally, am worried for Huck's sanity.
Loved it! My god, I know it is impossible but can I ship Mellie/Olivia as best friends? I mean Mellie is a manipulative woman but I get her angst. She was the one with the brains and ambition, top of her class and Harvard and Yale and gave it up to marry Fitz. It must be so galling when clearly she used to have a place at the policy table to be relegated to a ceremonial role. And Olivia, I love her but she is just as manipulatve as Mellie. It is just that we are conditioned to root for her as the heroine. When those amazing woman got together to outplay Fitz, I cheered!
Glad they are done for now. I mean Olivia and Fitz have amazing chemistry but Fitz is not at all likeable with his abusing his office and the way he talks to the women in his life. Olivia will always love him but I want her to move on from this. She will always care about him but she needs a life and a future and he cannot give her those things.
Love Abby and David and am super worried Abby will betray Olivia an
First, last night's episode had be on the edge of my seat. I thought it was full of suspense, political maneuvering, and sad desperation. The only part of the Scandal that disturbs me is Abby. She went from being a loyal friend to a sneaky suspicious, accusatory, I will not follow you over a cliff, type person in a matter of a few episodes. The homemaker turned detective, turned judgmental crazy person irks me and less screen time for her means more Scandal enjoyment for me.
Huck character along with Olivia keeps me coming back week after week. His comparison of killing people to drinking whiskey is so classic that I find myself rooting for him in a Dexter sort of way. The fact that he's doling out justice to those who truly do not deserve to get away with their crimes is intriguing. I like that he's found a sympathetic friend. I hope they explore that.
Olivia and her ex boyfriend were annoying me. He needs to go, now. He has no point, no purpose other than to be on screen to get
I liked teams Mellie/Olivia and David/Abby, but found Mellie screaming at Fitz and Cyrus demanding a place at the table over dramatic.
The final scene bordered on incredibility and turned me off completely. This mass conspiracy is out of an Oliver Stone movie and I have never liked them.
I have mixed feelings about this episode. As usual I liked Fitz and Olivia's scenes. I do not mind him pulling the rug out from Olivia about their relationship awhile. It is only a matter of time before they get back together obviously so I don't get all this talk about them "being over." Their romance is the anchor of the show. They will never be over.
I have to say that again I don't agree with the reviewer re: Fitz and Olivia. I did not see any shared "realization that this is a star-crossed love, doomed from the beginning by circumstances begun before they ever met,..." This is not Victorian England or "The Age of Innocence." Fitz will not be President forever and when he is done, there is no doubt that he will divorce Mellie and be with Olivia. The only issue between Fitz and Olivia is if they are both willing to the huge risk of continuing their love affair until he leaves office. Olivia’s answer for right now, is "no."
I liked teams Mellie/Olivia and David/Abby, but fou
Scandal!!! This is the most amazing show. The acting, by everyone is just wonderful. Livia and Fitz, whether you love them or hate them, have off the hook chemistry. With just a look, you feel their love and their pain. Star crossed lovers, to bad; they'd make a powerful couple. Don't sleep on Mellie though, this woman is dangerous, in fact, both his women are, beautiful, smart, powerful and dangerous. Gee Fitz, you must have it going on :-), besides the fact that you’re The President of the United States. Abby, don’t know why she would turn on Livia, after Livia literally saved her life, is a hard pill to take, don’t like that story line. Loyalty is expected in these situations, whether you understand what Livia is doing or not. What’s the group going to do with David (he’s a white hat for goodness sake).I don't know where Shonda is going with this show, but rest assured I will be going with her for this wild ride. This show is brilliant.
Okay, I know this is hard to believe, but this episode just did not do it for me for some reason. I'm actually glad the relationship between Fitz and Liv is over, and yes, they played it well, but I did not feel sorry for either character. Perhaps I just wasn't as vested after last week.
Enter now, the cover-up. Really? An oilman, the Chief of Staff, a Supreme Court Justice, the First Lady, and Olivia Pope? There's almost a joke in there somewhere. I do want to see how they tie all the strings together, and how it relates to national security as indicated previously by the Justice. By the way, I actually like Mellie more after this episode. She knows how to work the political machine that is DC.
The arc with Huck, I do like. The fact that he actually enjoyed killing as much as he did was surprising, but the way he portrayed it was EXCELLENT. The lines were extremely well-delivered and believable.
Loved it. Mellie is an out and out power hungry maniac and her ranting about the children was as funny as it was disturbing. The Grants are no longer pretending they give a damn about each other and i love it. It seems Olivia will always team up with someone else against Fitz. I'm glad he finally had the strength to walk away from her. She hurts him so much and did again this episode. Like the judge said, she's going to regret forcing the issue with him. Clearly, Fitz is the 'good' one here and all the plotting going on around him by the people he trusts the most will be devastating to him. Can't believe we have to wait two weeks before the next one.
This was another great episode, I'm glad Fitz finally 'let her go' there was too much pain in that doomed relationship the scene with Olivia sat, crying alone in the restaurant was so sad. Huck seems to be going back to the man he 'was' becoming more disturbing but still a delight to watch.
Great ending, Hollis Doyle, Cyrus, Verna, Olivia, and Mellie seem to have covered up a huge scandal. I think it involves Fitz although he may not even be aware of it. Are there really two weeks till the next ep? No fair I can't wait to see what happens next.
Wow, only that show can leave us with more questions after each episode. This is one of the most underrated show on tv.
Loved Gregg Henry's presence, loved him since the Gilmore Girls days... Huck is getting creepier by the minute. Guillermo Diaz is just incredible in that role.
