Sad ending. The part with the lingerie was hilarious.
Nothing new under the sun: powerful women makes choices and decides not to respect a CLEARLY abusive relationship and gets bashed by it. People take pity on the guy, even though he's clearly a jerk. Honestly, you don't even deserve to watch a show like Scandal. Do tune off. Meanwhile, I hope Olivia Pope continues on making HER choices and I hope she never again goes back to the miserable status of doing stuff for guys and abandoning her freedom in the mean time. THAT'S THE OLIVIA POPE I WANT TO SEE. I want to see the Olivia Pope who admits she's a big dog and THAT SHE LIKES IT. Also, I think it's great that she decided to have an abortion. It is the clear statement that she doesn't want to remain on that prison of a relationship. It's her body she can do WHATEVER SHE WANTS with it. Great episode. Empowered women everywhere. I CAN'T WAIT til Feb 11.
"Doing stuff for guys and abandoning her freedom" WHAT? SHE HAD FITZ TAKING NOTES FROM HER IN THE OVAL OFFICE. Seriously, what kind of twisted viewpoint do you have here? Olivia has stated over and over how much she loves Fitz and he is the love of her life, so your whole "Fitz is a prison" thing doesn't ring true to the character. And lastly, "empowerment" means having the freedom to kill your child? Nice. What century are we living in?
Of course she had Fitz taking notes on the Oval, lol. She is that kind of person, she likes the power and she's good at it. Thank god she was there to shed some light on Fitz's awful presidency. And it does ring true to her character because Fitz wasn't a prison before. Did you watch the same episode as I did? She preferred him unavailable. Their relationship was abusive from the get go but when they actually got the chance to be together that it got clear. The man trapped her on the WH for God's sake. And acted like he was trying to shift the blame onto her... Pitiful. And lastly, we're living in the 21st century. It is about time women got the chance to determine whether or not they want to keep a fetus inside them. Up until the second trimester it is not even conscious yet.
New flash, Olivia has been doing stuff for guys since the show started. She was Fitz's jump off and his employee. Double dipping on doing things for guys.
Thinking Riggs is Hunts transsexual sister since he called Hunts mother "mom", and she hugged hm like she would a child and not a son in law. Possibly the gender reassignment years back caused a rift in Hunts family, gave his dad a heart attack or something, so Hunt made him leave and blames him for their dads death. If Riggs had just been a son in law, I don't think the mother would have asked Meredith to close the door to speak to her. Also, if a person is starting their whole life over with a new gender, it doesn't seem so unlikely that they would their whole indentity, including their last name.
This is my personal thought as well. Spot on 100% for me! We'll see in Feb.
oh! I've never thought about this one!
That would make me hate owen tho...
I agree that the scenes between Sherlock and Morland were the best. John Noble is a fantastic actor and deserved an Emmy for his work on Fringe. The problem was that not enough people saw it. At least he got nominated for an award towards the end of the series. I hope they don't cut back too much on Gregson's and Bell's time, though, because I really like both of them.
I agree with you! I love John Noble, but I hope that our NYPD friends' screentime doesn't suffer too greatly in favor of Morland/Sherlock drama.
Having an actor or actress playing two different roles in the same show is a real treat for me and when its a guy like John Noble , the result is brilliant.Sadly nowadays , he's asked to play charismatic and deep voice rather than sweet and funny. But it's still spot on.
I was just ehhh to this episode and I am sort of blaming it on Owen because I just don't find his character to be compelling. I don't care about him and Meredith's out of the blue new friendship, his relationship with Amelia or his conflict with the new guy. The new guy is already more compelling to me than Owen. I personally feel that his character has run it's course. Normally Amelia annoys me but she had a point this episode. Why do Meredith's loyalties lie with Owen over her? First Owen and Meredith are not close and Meredith does not get close to people quickly...this whole attachment/friendship feels forced and out of nowhere. I was excited about Maggie and her guy:) I was not excited about Alex and Jo. I will commend Jo on seeing that her relationship has issues. I feel that Alex says all the right things to her...I want to have a baby, I want to live together, I want to be married but his actions say something entirely different. His actions say I am just lukewarm on this relationship. I don't see anything between these two. I think Alex wants to be more into her than he actually is. Jo needs to watch out because in relationships its actions that speak louder than words.
I believe you missed a word in "She also tells him that she wants to be happy." Pretty sure she said she wants HIM to be happy.
Another Meh episodeIf penny or bernie in past seasons dated raj or sheldon then it would like deffinitely Friends 2.0
Never any comments here, this site really blows for comments.
I think the writers should focus on developping the other characters storyline and stop obsessing with the Olitz or Olake storyline since everyone is getting fed up with it and the ratings are dropping like flies. I want Shonda to also be interested in Marcus, abby and the rest of the OPA team. Maybe leave Liv and her personal drama for a while and give us some interesting case that would take our mind off the love triangle.
This episode was definitely below par with nothing really drawing a casual audience back after the break. For a show that has been predominantly out of the box from the start, and while the cast, especially Spader, have been fantastic, this instalment was disappointing.
