So I'm still watching. Love the Cookie character as well Taraji, what a wonderful actress she is. And she was the only one that mentioned that what Hakeem said about President Obama was disrespectful. How would this kid get away with that? Obama a sellout,WTH is that about? I guess he disrespects his mother so everyone else is fair game. Lucious is a piece of work and pretty sure him and Cookie will be getting back together before long, cause lord knows she's got his number.
Most excellent show. Cried thru the entire episode cause pretty much new what was coming. Color can now be Sons, pretty cool Jax. Still don't like the idea of Wendy, but WTH, Tara's gone so, whatever. How good was Happy in this episode? They all pretty much nailed it. Still can't believe Tig survived :-), but glad he did. So Jax closed that "The Irish Kings" door, did it with malice of forthought, damn, Sutter, what a good show. Will miss you guys madly. Starting to watch from the beginning as soon as I get over the last episode. It will be so strange seeing everyone, and Jax so young and so in love with Tara. Thanks for the memories Sutter you rock. oh and btw - no one ever found out that Jax killed that ATF guy that was stalking Tara, his first kill I think. I always thought that would come back to haunt him.
She played the victum, and became the victum. She didn't sacrafice herself for Fitz. She sacraficed herself for Mellie, and Fitz still doesn't know why she never told him. And, she treated her son poorly because of it. Yeah, poor Mellie
Let's not forget, she never told Fitz because she wanted him to win the Governor’s race. She made a choice, power over her marraige. If I remember correctly, Fitz was devastated when she stopped being intimate with him. What did she think Fitz was going do, her problem is, she never thought Fitz would fall desperately in love with someone else. Yeah, Mellie didn't think that one through. And, he fell in love with Olivia Pope. Geez, Mellie must really be pissed.
Wow, well said, definately food for thought.
I absolutely agree. The acting was phenominal in both scenarios, Tom and Abby. I'm going to watch it again this evening, my TGIF night treat :-).
I love Olivia, she does have shortcomings, but her gladiator soul outweights them. She doesn't realize that she controls the men but they also control her. Anyway, most excellent episode, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. Also, Cyres, hell hath no fury like a "person" scorned. It's on now. :-)
I just loved this episode, it is must see TV, TV being the operative word. This make believe world that Shonda has created is definitely my cup of tea. There is love, lust, joy, pain, betrayal, disloyalty and everything else you can think of. This is my most wonderful escape. I love all the characters, because they all have their part to play. Fitz, deep down to the soul in love. He loves Olivia unconditionally. He knows her father or her mother killed his son and still he's all in. Come on, great character. (yeah we knowhe's a cheater, but I guess I don't care, just always wanted to be loved like that). Olivia, brilliant, beautiful, a warrior, but alas a woman, in love, with a married man, nothing new, nothing to kill her for. It is what it is and not for nothing, Mellie is her confidant a lot of thetimes. Poor Fitz :-). Yes and Olivia is a gladiator and obviously has a lot of her father in her. But, she’s still trying to do the right thing. Great character. I could go on, this show is phenomenal, just look at all the comments. Pro or Con, it makes you feel and think and yes love and hate. I can't stand Mellie, but what a character. Who thought her up, my goodness, so wonderful. She is full of inconsistencies. Love or hate her, wonderful actress, wonderful character. Now, to the Helen of Troy soliloquy, I thought it was brilliant, because we got a perspective from the Secret Service point of view. The fact that Tom never really got a chance to really look at Olivia. Wow, what a speech. He gets her and finally understands. She has the President of United States so inlove with her; he’s willing to give it all up. She has “Command” who loves her and in his mine willing to do anything to make her happy and Jake, three powerful men under her control. Yeah, Helen of Troy she is, she owns them. Lastly, Fitz and all that phone sex talk, now that was Hot and it got to Olivia big time, like I said, MUST SEE TV. PS, I was kinda hoping Abby shot her ex-husband, but that's just me. Now he's an asshole.
Honestly, I don't give a crap about Liz. Wow, I don't like her at all. Every episode I think they will write something that will make her a likeable character. No such luck. She is sooooooooooo ungrateful, and not such a good agent either. How many times has she been taken hostage and everytime, Red has saved her. She has the nerve to have an attitude. So, she is not his daughter, and I don't care who she is now.
I really enjoyed this episode, it had a lot to say. It said Abby is in competition with Olivia. That Huck is upset with Quinn cause he still has a family and she bought that back to his attention. He cheated on his wife with Quinn, that obviously isn't sitting well with thim. Fitz is fighting for Mellie, he's not in love with her but he loves her, she is the mother of his children. He also still needs Olivia, even just for his confidence, she put him on the right path last night, wonderful state of the union address, he hit it out of the park. This episode said that Olivia is really into Jake, in fact, they are really into each other, what a nice relationship they have. He knows her very well, he's like a real boyfriend :-). David, slippery slope buddy, for all his speech about winning, he did exactly what he was railing about. David, David, David, what a tangle web we weave... That will come back to haunt you. As to Cyres, kinda corny, he is the most paranoid person, that should not have worked. That scene with him and Mellie, most excellent, he was absolutely right, comparisons should not be made with lost loved ones. I gave this episode a 5.
