Scandal Season 4 Episode 5 Review: One Of the Good Guys

Am I alone in thinking that Mellie will kill Jake?

She might thank him since she was grateful that Jerry's death had meaning and won Fitz the presidency. She has kind of gone off the deep end. Although, in some ways, trying to make sense of the loss of someone is understandable. People are often saying that a person's death had some meaning, that they did not die in vain. I am not of that school.

I agree. I'm not sure about Mellie either but she is not thinking straight. When she said those words to Fits she looked like one who needs help immediately. I wonder what the writers want. Yes, she"s grieving but it was more than enough. There is plenty to do, charity, fund raising etc. pls give Mellie some work so she can feel useful and she can be jealous in the mean time :)

I do not think the writers have been kind to Mellie. She has gone through a lot in her past with the rape by Fitz's father that destroyed their marriage. To me the marriage appears to be more than a friendship or marriage of convenience. It would not have lasted as long as it did otherwise. Many politicians these days have been divorced and it has not hurt them politically.So something had to keep it going that was deeper. Obviously, her choice to remain silent did not help, but that is not unusual in such cases, and would Fitz have believed her? So the result was that they grew more and more distant over time. Emotionally, she is all over the place (a victim of trauma) and hopefully her transformative moment will make her stronger and a character we can respect more. At this point many viewers are unsympathetic to her and short change her resilience.

You are right about that but this is not the case. Jerry was murdered. It would had some meaning if he would have saved someone's life (this is just an example).

Understood. Sacrificing oneself for the good of others is heroic. I would say this in Fitz's defense.If he had to choose between Jerry's life or the presidency he would choose to save Jerry and give up the presidency. Not so sure about what Mellie would do if given the choice. Cyrus would choose the presidency and then whine about his choice.

That would be awesome.

How is she going to do that? Jake is B613.

Still not sure why Olivia believes a word her father says.

Martinelli
@ Fudgefase

Because he was right about her mom and I guess she believes him (occasionally). She doubted him at first, even accused him of killing Harrison and holding Jake.

You have to admit, Rowan is a very convincing liar. He set that up perfectly because Liv knows Jake is capability of cold blooded murder...even a child. He was obsessed with her and Fitz....so Rowan is a mastermind and can be very believable. You have to understand the characters know less than what the audience know about Rowan.

Rowan is manipulating everyone and he's really good at it. Now it's a war between Jake and Rowan. Let's see who wins. Olivia is going to lose either way.
Just think about it: her mother was a terrorist, her father is a killer, her boyfriend is a killer, her ex lover (Fitz) is a killer, Huck and Quinn are both killers :)

When I look at the pounding Fitz gave Jake and what he was saying to taunt him, and back to the scene where Fitz said the same things to her father, all I can think of is that to all these men, she is just a prize, she has been put on a pedestal and they are all falling over themselves to possess her. It may have begun as love for Fitz and Olivia, but its now an obsession. No one should have this woman if its not him. For Jake, its a game for him, trying to out ego the president. As for her father, only God knows what he wants.
But I love the promo for next week. It's about time Abby gladiated. Who is raising the child Cyrus adopted or social services took her away? That OPA office needs more staff.

i actually really liked this episode, especially laurel's part. I find her more tolerable than any of the others right now.

I am a Callie fan…not so much (if at all) an Arizona fan. The fighting was too much. I found myself switching to football and totally forgetting I was watching Grey's. Didn't we see Callie with Owen in a dream sequence somewhere in the past? Hmmmmm!

Another fantastic episode,TVD writers have really cleared up the mess they made last season!!

Spot on! This was the worst episode ever.

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 Episode 5 Review: Bend & Break

I think breaking up is definitely the right route for them - what this episode really highlighted for me, especially the Callie/Meredith scenes is that the show really revolves too much around the couples these days and it would be nice to see them exploring non-sexual friendships more as they did in the earlier seasons. I really can't remember Callie and Arizona having any meaningful interactions with other characters in recent years so I think it's time for a different direction for both of them since they have both been very isolated, boring, irritating people over the last few seasons.

I enjoyed this episode for the fact that Callie finally realized what I'd felt about her character for the last few years. She jumped from relationship to relationship and it was like she never had time to herself to enjoy life. I'm happy that they are going in that direction now and it will be a great way to see the characters evolve.
It's realistic they way they have gone. They aren't ending the marriage, they need a bigger break and maybe it will end up with them coming back to each other. I hope so. I hope that this isn't signifying the end of the show though. because season 6 private practice had individual episodes focusing on each character... I hope this isn't happening here....
Great shout out to Henry and Addison. I do hope they let Addison visit for an episode.
I hate Herman though. She's a bitch. Arizona isn't some intern who is being Nosey. She's a great surgeon. Herman also needs to show other people some respect. I mean there has to be that student teacher relationship but seriously...

I believe before the beginning of season 11, they all signed on for another 2 seasons :) So hopefully, no end yet!

I think Arizona's going to go back to her original specialty and tell Herman where to go. I wish someone would...Herman is so wooden that I don't see why she's even here...it doesn't fit the rest of the show at all.
