The speech that Olivia gave Edison may be the best of the season. Those lines were on fire and on point. I maybe fist bumped her in my mind for that. He has been such a bore, and the fact he just keeps letting himself in to her home is absolutely out of line. I wanted him to be a good man, but he's just another man who wants what he wants with no regard to what she wants. Olivia clearly has a type. I get more and more nervous week by week about the election rigging coming out. Clearly we are headed there. And I hate it. I don't want to watch an impeachment or a drawn out arc where Fitz loses everything he thought he learned because the people who were his people did the unspeakable. But where does the show go? Something is coming of it, but do with have a Scandal with out Fitz as president? Do we have a Scandal without Olivia sleeping with him (and thus being the biggest Scandal of all?). I just get more nervous and it's getting hard to watch it come to a head!
You know I've hated this infidelity aspect for many reasons. But it's so hard to hate it when it's clear that time and time again one woman was making choices purely about how much they care about him. Even the actions of late have been selfish. If Fitz had woken up and not been president? I don't think he would have cared nearly as much as Mellie cared. And he had to push himself further than he should have simply to keep those he cares about out of prison. Mellie's dealings with him were more about how everything effects the presidency and her stances as First Lady though his as President. It's gross. And I hate seeing it. Him asking for a divorce was so less than shocking, but the fact remains that over Mellie's dead body will she give up her hold as First Lady. Not after what she's done to get there.
I think that Olivia made that choice because of her overwhelming guilt over their actions. That when his "people" asked her what she wanted, each stating what they would get out of his presidency, she wasn't being selfish. The only thing she got out of it was the love of her life achieving his dream. Olivia made/makes wrong choices every time it concerns Fitz. She's intelligent enough to know that. I am always interested to see where her internal battle takes her.
