(Quoting SchoolHouse Rock’s ‘Ready or Not, Here I Come’:”This is a long one, folks. Here we go!”)Well, in the last few days, there have been articles not only busting the hateful Myth that SCANDAL lost its Fall slot because of KW’s pregnancy to smithereens (suck a fat one, haters! We TOLD your sorry asses!) but also strongly implying that there will some form of an Olitz reconciliation in Season 6. I am a mixed bag of ‘FUCK YEAH, THAT’S WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR!’, ‘I WON’T GET FOOLED AGAIN!’ (*insert The Who’s bass line and guitar riffs here*), and as usual, SALTY AS FUCK. Why, you ask? Well...
Re: Shutting Down the Pregnancy Blame. Again:
Well, it’s confirmed: KW’s pregnancy was NOT the direct cause of #Scandal’s delay in returning. Haters?
That’s why I was so mad when folks said it. If you’ve watched #Scandal for at least a year, then you know EXACTLY why it lost its Fall slot!
LEADING ACTRESSES ON MAJOR TV SHOWS GET PREGGERS ALL THE TIME. Usually, there will be bump hiding and ep delays but NOT 8 months! #Scandal
#Scandal losing its Fall slot has NOTHING to do with KW’s uterus. It’s because of shit ratings due to an inept showrunner’s hubris. PERIOD.
If #Scandal 5 hadn’t dropped the ball, hadn’t wasted the restart that we got in 4x22, if it had been done right, then we’d have a Fall date!
Re: Season 6 Speculation on Liv, Fitz, and #Olitz
#Scandal spoiler articles/SR imply that there will be an #Olitz reconciliation in 6
My 1st reaction (sad but true):
I’m #Olitz to the end but after what happened with #Scandal 5 & AT LAST? I don’t believe a fuckin’ thing ANYONE says. Not even my faves!
I call bullshit on anything good happening for Liv, Fitz, #Olitz on #Scandal until I see it on the screen. It’s easier that way. PROVE IT!
It may not be bull. #Scandal 5 was panned across the board from 5x05 because of the bait/switch. Maybe we’ll get a real AT LAST. #Olitz
The best news I could get from the #Scandal camp is news of brand new writers or throwback writers taking the wheel from SR’s bullshit.
It’s too much to ask for them to can SR as #Scandal’s showrunner but new writers, ABC putting sanctions on the Titan? YES. DO THAT.
SR’s been running #Scandal into the ground since Season 2A, 3A being nice. It’s time for a shakeup. Kick her out or install checks/balances!
Enough’s enough. #Scandal 5 removed all patience for the Mambo 123, bait/switch bullshit. DO IT RIGHT FOREVER OR SIT DOWN. #Olitz
I’m following the right folks because they’re reacting to the new #Scandal 6 speculation like me: Fuck SR’s lying ass/SHOW ME THE RECEIPTS!
None of us remaining Gladiators want to get burned again. There’s hope but it’s small hope, jaded hope (oxymoron, I know) #Scandal
I dunno. If the spoilers/speculation I read had come from a major site ala TV Guide or SpoilerTV, I’d be more secure in believing. #Scandal
And even then, that doesn’t mean shit because things get changed at the last minute all the time with #Scandal and rarely in our favor.
If SR really cared about more than her ego, then #Scandal would still be a top shelf show instead of a primetime soap with rare gem moments.
I mean, who really wanted to see Joke live past Season 2? Who’s really here for B613 and President Mellie? #Scandal
I’m thinking that the speculation is either bait/switch again or SR’s gonna give us Liv, Fitz, #Olitz but on her petty terms. #Scandal
Remember that was Season 4’s Finale wasn’t her original plan. Pretty much anything good for Liv, Fitz, #Olitz comes DESPITE SR. #Scandal
#Scandal 5 made it so that SR can’t get away with her usual Liv, Fitz, #Olitz antics + The Flop…er Catch is not a good replacement for it.
There is hope. Tangible hope. #Scandal 5 getting slammed and other shows stepping their game up gives us hope for 6. It better pan out!
I’m going into #Scandal 6 writing everything good off as bull until I see it live. I will NOT be AT LAST burned again on Liv, Fitz, #Olitz!
I’m not the only one. The 1st comment on the Article I read promising better #Scandal days was and I quote: SCREW YOU AND YOUR LIES, SHONDA.
What do I want for #Scandal 6? I want a Liv that I don’t feel stupid defending, a dead Joke, Mellie to lose & I want a flipped script #Olitz
I don’t want Fitz chasing her. He’s done enough chasing and begging and scraping. FUCK THAT. IT IS LIV’S TURN TO EARN HIM. #Olitz#Scandal
I want Liv to get the mental help that Meredith has gotten. I want Liv to stop being a punk ass bitch & be a Gladiator for herself. #Scandal
I DON’T want #Olitz without Liv putting in the work that Fitz always has for them to make it. I want balance. I want justice! #Scandal
I know that the majority of #Scandal fans have had it with SR’s bull because even the #Olitz optimists are like:
My timeline is LIT with people who are SO DONE with the back and forth and I love it. SALTY FOLKS UNITE! #Scandal
It ain’t over until the last camera shutter click to black of #Scandal but ain’t nobody here for Mambo 123 bullshit with Liv, Fitz, #Olitz!
