Even if I get in the right room, with the right people, with the right outfit…what are the odds? I still have to be the funniest, or the hottest, or the most talented, or whatever crazy specific thing they’re looking for that day. You can give everything you have here, and it still might not be enough.
morning (because I’m on the other side of the globe) I watched the premiere.
this is some kind of a review, thoughts, gifs, etc; all mixed up about 601. Let’s see:
1. This is
one of the greatest episodes I’ve watched in a long time. I was not a fan
of 5B and this premiere has really made the difference. The plot was intriguing
and it remembered about the old days: the good old days.
Frankie Vargas. I wanted him to win and I had the feeling that he could win as
well (you feel me, @lauraquarium ). But when I saw this:
I had the
feeling that something BAD was about to happen. I don’t know, I saw this
victory too quickly and in the Scandalverse you never know until the very end
of the episode. Again, POOR FRANKIE.
3. Fitz and
Olivia. This is, in my opinion, the scene that summarizes the episode for
after Olivia. They are in friendship mode on. I like it, I mean, it’s a good
start if we want them back together someday (if Shonda let’s that happen, of
course). OLITZ IS FAR FROM OVER
Ballard. I don’t care where he is or what he does if it is a normal episode.
But in this episode Frankie Vargas was killed.
So “Where’s Jake?” could be
answered with: killing Frankie Vargas, maybe?. He was with Fitz in the room but all is possible here. Well, I’m sure we will know in a few
weeks but Jake is one of the options on the table.
5. Survival of the Fittest. Mellie has lost. And what really scares me is the way
Olivia takes this lost.
First, she calms Mellie but then:
Papa Pope might be right about Cyrus but I’m SO tired of this relationship.
After listening Papa Pope she goes back to the White House and is again that Olivia Pope hungry for power (bye white hat). She is still controlled by Rowan.
And next: even if Mellie says she doesn’t want to run anymore, she NEEDS to run because she can’t keep herself from power because she is addicted to it.
Cyrus Beene. This scene really broke me and not because Cyrus just saw a
shooting. This broke me because this shows how far a person can go just to have
power. Cyrus is capable of doing this, of course. He is a
political monster. Look at
7. I laughed at this:
8. So, we have a wedding soon, I suppose:
9. Susan Ross
and Lizzie Bear were not in the episode and that doesn’t make sense, unless the
flashbacks of 602 explain this. Something must have happened to them, I guess.
I hope not to Susan, though. I love her so much, just look at this:
Yes, everybody likes me. This town is full of people that like you to your face and forget you to your back. No one is on your side here, everyone is against you. The actresses in the next room, mad-dogging me, calling me bitch in their brain. The readers who think they can do it better than I can. The casting directors whose feet I have to kiss just to get to the next room, and the next room, and the next room - I’ve been in eight rooms before this one.
