Unlucky In Love: Our Advice for Olivia Pope

by at . Comments

The TV characters we love seem to have it all. They're beautiful or handsome. They have huge apartments and wear the best clothes, even when they're flat broke. But the one thing most of them can't seem to get right is love.

So that's where TV Fanatic comes in. Instead of sitting back and letting our favorite characters disastrous romantic lives make us feel better about our own, we'll offer them a little advice.

We can't promise they'll be any luckier in love, but at least we can all feel a little better having tried to help.

Starting with... Scandal's Olivia Pope.

Olivia Worries Over a Secret

Dear Olivia,

You are a smart, beautiful woman who is great at managing a scandal but lousy at dealing with your own love life. You, my dear, are the victim of forbidden love.

Fitz is drowning himself in the bottom of a bottle and blaming you for his weakness.  Yeah, the fact that you agreed to commit fraud against the American people to get him elected President has turned your white hat more than a little grey but Fitz is no choir boy either. Perhaps he's got something weighing on his own conscience, (like murdering a Supreme Court Justice in her hospital bed?)

But the reasons behind him acting like a jackass are neither here nor there. The problem is he's taking you down with him. You need to stop the decent.

For a woman who once said she doesn't believe in crying, you've certainly been spending a lot of time sobbing into your pillow.

It's time to take a step back... and hire yourself as the client! What would you tell a woman pining over a married man?

Exactly. He's married and as long as he is he will never be yours. So the next time he makes goo goo eyes at you from across a room, ignore him. And if he pulls you into another enclosed space to have a little fun, walk out and leave him there to finish the job himself.

If he's miserable with his diabolically clever but crazy wife, that's his problem. It's time to find your own happiness. Maybe take a vacation and get out of D.C.

Oh, and as far as that handsome new man in uniform goes... if it seems to good to be true it probably is. 

So, dear readers, what's your advice? Should Olivia wait and hope that Fitz comes to his senses and wants her back, or is it time to kick him to the curb?

Dear TV Fanatic,
Have you even watched all the episodes? Save your words for other silly shows like Gossip Girl. May be this show is too smart for your head. Fitz is by no means a bad person. Liv can meet someone else and LOOK normal. But no one, I mean no one will neither love her nor make her FEEL good like Fitz, period. So this takes me to a conclusion that you are a kind of person who settles for convenience rather than true love. But Liv deserves true love - that is why she is waiting for Fitz. Waiting for TRUE LOVE. True Love has so many sacrifices which most people are not willing to go through - the reason why we have so many divorces. If you have true love, nothing breaks you up. FITZ AND LIV ARE IN LOVE AND THEY WILL MAKE IT THROUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The writers are trying to destroy Fitz’s character to make people fall in love with Jake’s character. (NOT WITH ME)… If you write the most loveable guy in the world into a monster, you’ll have women saying, Liv go out with Herman Munster, he’s great! Any guy would look great, at this point for many folks, you could bring back Edison and it’ll be cool. But I’m concerned about how lousy they’re doing with Liv, too. Your man was shot in the head, got out of the hospital weeks early to save you and his sorry circle of friends from federal prison, and you don’t even think, “hey, maybe it’s his frontal lobe?� No, because you’re too busy smiling with a guy you don’t even know and sitting on some stairs drinking wine. He did all that for y’all losers and you’re chatting up an INTEL OFFICER…hello, he’s not that into you, Liv. He’s a pro at getting information. He knows how to get up to people. That is his job! When he called Liv at the party, it was to get a rise out of Fitz, not to make her giggle like a school girl. He knew Fitz and Liv were gonna be at the same event and he wanted to see if he’d get a rise out of him to find out if it was personal, it worked. So, now he knows. Get off the Jake wagon, he’s as crooked as a dizzy sidewinder. Captain Crunch is a sneak. LOL Oh, and if he lied to the face of his old long time friend.

to make her listen. He is always the one fighting for their love and she always the one that appears to walk away and not care. I don’t know how some of you guys can honestly say that he is acting like an idiot. We get to see both sides, and we get to know why she does these things but he does not. All he sees is her rejection of him and then the ultimate betrayal. The sad thing is that he still loves her so much inspite of what he thinks she has done. Did you guys notice the only time he smiled in a long time was when Jake was telling him about her during the first visit? That is why he is having her watched. He needs to know where she is and what she is doing for his own sanity. He cannot just leave the WH to “confront� her. It is up to her to make that move. She’s owes at least that to him.

Oh TV Fanatic - you have a nerve to write something like this. WOW!!!
My heart goes out to Fitz. He is trapped in a political marriage to a woman he never grew to love. He found the love of his life who constantly “blows hot/blows cold� with is emotions.
1. Finally telling him that she loves him, that they are in it together then resigning and leaving the WH with no explanation days later. Examples
2. Going behind his back and arranging with Mellie for America’s baby, telling him to “go be the man she help get elected and voted for, after kissing the life out of him in the oval and agreeing that he would resign and they would be together.
3. Him telling her that he is leaving Mellie and to wait for him, her response is “I’ll think about it� (really?)�
He is the one ALWAYS chasing after her, telling her how much e loves her (note she never says it back). With the Amanda fiasco, he was the one begging her ti listen, even broke protocol and left the WH to go find her to make her listen. He is always the one fighting for their love and she always the one that appears to walk away and not care. I don’t know how some of you guys can honestly say that he is acting like an idiot. We get to see both sides, and we get to know why she does these things but he does not. All he sees is her rejection of him and then the ultimate betrayal. The sad thing is that he still loves her so much inspite of what he thinks she has done. Did you guys notice the only time he smiled in a long time was when Jake was telling him about her during the first visit? That is why he is having her watched.

Fitz is her one true love, even thou he's angry right now the love has not and will not go away, so if its real cause we know Fitz will leave Mellie if he was'nt the President of the United States. I do believe Olivia needs to fight for Fitz because first season and begining of this season Fitz fought for Olivia to listen and understand what he did, she need to do the same for him!

Scandal Quotes

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.

Olivia

Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.
