Scandal Season 4 Episode 14 Review: The Lawn Chair

Hated it. The situations weren't parallel at all; for one thing, the kid actually didn't rob a store or beat on a cop, and for another, the entire justice department didn't inspect the situation and figure the cop was innocent enough NOT to charge. And wondering when shonda will have the balls to do a "black cop shoots white kid and then goes off on a racist tirade" episode. Or even address the black on black crime wave out there. Lets just say I won't hold my breath.

I find Nashville varies so much from week to week and this week was a good one. Scarlett is so much more interesting when she gets a bit of a spark about her and I got to admit I do enjoy Jeff the pantomime villain, glad he is still around. Some depth to Luke is also a nice touch.

Golfingdocp, did the deleted scene change your perception of the relationship between Neil and Grace and Simon and Grace?

1. Out of our two new ladies, the real world Ursala was by far my favorite but I hate fairy tale word version of her because she is so corny. The opposite was true for Cruella who I felt was too over the top for the real world setting but in fairy tale world she was a nice balance. Honestly I'm not the biggest fan of any of them. Cruella is one of my least favorite villains in the Disney movies, Ursula doesn't seem like the same awesome villain that she was in The Little Mermaid and although i love Kristen Bauer, Malificent just never has seemed dark enough to me. 2. Of course Emma had immense potential for darkness. She is the savior, one of the most powerful forces of magic in this world. Usually great power like that can be swayed either way. The real question is will she allow herself to turn the darkside? I don't see what would make her turn other than if she lost Henry. 3. If Regina can be redeemed so can Rumple. Regina consciously made the choice to become evil. Yes she was in pain over the death of her boyfriend but that doesn't let her off the hook. Rumple on the other hand was tricked into it by the dark one. Rumble is addicted to the dark one's power now. It is hard for him to quit. No that doesn't excuse all the awful things he has done but it doesn't make him an awful person either. He has good in him. We have seen it before. It is just a matter of him being forced into getting clean. 4. It seems like they made some kind of deal. Maybe it would explain why Cruella and Ursula were in the real world outside of Storybrook and had never even heard of the town. 5. I know I am in the complete minority here but I was disappointed by almost the entire thing. I'm not very interested in the Queens of Darkness storyline. I am intrigued by the idea of Emma's potential for darkness and by what Snow and Charming are hiding but that's about it. I'm pretty used to not being interested in the villains though so I don't think it will be Too much of an issue for me. 6. Probably the scene of Snow and Charming talking to Ursula and Cruella. I love when Snow and Charming spice things up. They were both so awesome in the Enchanted Forrest flashbacks in the early seasons but they are just so boring in Storybrook. We NEED to see them get a little of the EF Snow and Charming back!

Rumple was tricked into being evil and Regina, wasn't? Okay you need to explain that to me because from what I saw Rumple manipulated her from the start so that she one day will cast the curse. And it might be that he was originally tricked into becoming the Dark One but he wanted the power just like Regina let herself be tricked into it. They both had a choice and made a bad decision.
From what I see now Rumple has not much good in him. He only chooses himself and never wanted truly to be redeemed. I really liked him once as a character because of his love for his son and Belle. Now I still like him as a villain but I don't see a good side.

Oh my, where to begin. It is just one big mess. Not funny. Did not need to see a cute little bird sucked up a vacuum although, yes it was predictable. Still didn't need to see it. Not my idea of funny. I do like the cast. Surprisingly I like Felix, he gets more laughs from me than Oscar. Which isn't really saying anything. I love Dani. The writers need to work on Oscar. He is obnoxious more than anything.

I really enjoyed it. Matthew is doing what he does and Lennon is terrific.

That scene with the father sitting over his son was so heartbreaking. Whatever race someone is, there is no justication for shooting a child. I loved that Shonda went there and I think she wanted to appeal to our humanity and not a particular race. But from some of the viewers, they didn't get it.

just how old is Joe supposed to be on the show? I feel like that character grew up way too fast.

It certainly had it's funny moments. I thought the sex paint was pretty funny. Even funnier that they decided to give it to Sheldon and tell him it was painted by William Shatner. I love that they had to do a redo because the first one was too boring. They were pretty cute in their bathrobes. Raj snooping around Emily's nightstand and breaking it was ehh. Even Howard and Bernadette listening in on the resulting fight between them wasn't all that funny. Although the thing with the closet was kind of funny. Raj has come a long way from the guy who had to be drunk to talk to women. I think Amy had every right to be upset with Sheldon. It's obvious he told everyone but her about his application to Mars. Glad he eventually invited her along. Their relationship has come a long way too. He now takes her hand willingly. Trying to wrap my head around Sheldon being a husband and father. I just can't. I would have loved to see the turtle bite Sheldon's finger.
Loved the tribute to Leonard Nimoy at the end.

I'm really not a fan of the girls this season so I honestly just fast forward through their performances after the first minute of the performance (sometimes even way less) and don't bother to listen to what the judges say. However, when it came to Jax's performance I had to hear what they said and I was so shocked that nobody mentioned the BIG glaring issue in her performance and you didn't mention it either. She forgot the lyrics to a WHOLE ENTIRE VERSE. If you listen to the very start of her performance she starts singing words (she says two or three words) then goes into the ad lib because she didn't know the rest of the words. you could tell as she waited for the judges comments that she was worried that they were gonna talk about it because she looked so freaked out. It was just so obvious to me I don't get why it wasn't mentioned by the judges. There was no way that was how she intended to start her performance. If Simon was still on the show she would have been nailed to the wall. Oh well. I better just stick to rooting for the boys.
