Okay, so Scandal! I wasn’t home to watch the first episode to report on it, but apparently not much happened anyway. The last 2 weeks I’ve been back at it. The last minute of last night’s episode though…
This season has been, idk. I’m having a love/hate relationship with it. Olivia has just become so over wrought with emotion & pathetic. There’s no more powerful, smart Olivia Pope. Just this sappy one that is always on the verge of tears or on the verge of yelling at Fitz & then kissing him. I sympathize with her situation, as far as her parents, but come on.
I just want Olitz to stop. It’s just so redundant at this point. I’m over it. Olake can go too. Olivia just needs to go back to being married to her career for a while. Go back to being a crisis manager instead of just being a constant crisis herself. Last week it seems like every character on the show went off on her & all she could do was look stupid. She needs to get a grip.
I don’t really want to give too much away, but I will say I thought Sally was a goner. They should just make Cyrus the head of B6-13, though he is a bit trigger happy. I was sure he was gonna get James up outta there, Sally style. Quinn can go now. She’s not needed. It’s so funny watching them try to cover Kerry’s belly. It probably doesn’t help that we all know that she is extremely pregnant. That laugh attack she had when she realized all of the presidential candidates were killers was contagious as hell, but also made you think of all the times you had to laugh to keep from crying.
As far as Jake as the new leader, at first I thought they were gonna try to have him be the new, good man at the helm, but then… We don’t even know yet what happened. I just know my breath caught in my chest. I’ll be watching next week, of course.
And here are some screenshots of my timeline on Twitter at the end of Scandal:
