Shonda, Shonda, Shonda. Last night was the season finale of Scandal and it was a lot. A lot went on and I don’t really wanna spoil it for those behind so I’ll try to be vague. The season wrapup was complete with each character being resolved one way or another.
Those Popes. Let me tell you about Maya and Eli Pope. I’m not sure anymore what Maya’s angle is; there has just been so much happening. Meanwhile, Eli Pope was playing that good Iago from Othello game with people’s lives. Poor little Olivia! No wonder she’s been a mess all season.
This season I just could not stand to watch Olivia being the little weak emotional girl getting read left and right by everybody, including herself. I understand that she’s been through a lot, but girl, she’s gonna have to cope better than what she’s doing. Hopefully next season she’ll return to her former glory.
I just don’t like Fitz. I haven’t liked him for quite some time now. He’s just a weak, whiny little boy with daddy issues, riding off of the accomplishments of his father, Mellie, Cyrus, Olivia, and B6-13. He’s so pathetic and the way he treats people is terrible. Especially Olivia. After everything that went down this pathetic little dude asks his wife to find his mistress. Just sad. I really wanted him to lose, though honestly none of the candidates were good enough.
Mellie I really enjoyed this season. She finally stopped being the hurt little wife and vindictive little politician long enough to start doing for herself and somewhat reclaiming her life. I was so here for her affair with Andrew. I’m mad it came to an end. She was reading all this season. I just hope eventually she’ll finally let Fitz go.
Cyrus was a real piece of work this season, but he pretty much always has been. There’s no telling what he’ll do next. RIP James though.
Abby was not at all a good substitute Olivia. Stick to being the feisty one in the office and chill.
Quinn can go. She ceased to be necessary like 2 seasons ago.
Harrison… we’ll just have to see what happens with that. I’m pulling for him.
Huck, that poor man. He’s been so ruined by everything, he’s so messed up. Hopefully this ending means he’ll finally start to get his life back. But it’s Scandal so I doubt it. That scene with him and Quinn was hilarious though. Just on the conference table like their little nasty, warped sex game hadn’t already almost got somebody killed.
Jake, Idk. He might have run his course at this point as well. The whole Olake thing doesn’t really work.
Jerry. Poor little Jerry. Eli knows he is wrong for that. Just cold blooded.
All in all the season ended kind of flat, but it is open ended so anything could happen. I know they had to wrap it up early due to Kerry Washington’s pregnancy which they failed hilariously at trying to hide this whole season. We’ll see what comes next. Meanwhile, I spend every Thursday night til it’s return thinking about how Scandal isn’t on. What am I gonna do now?
