There isn’t a day that passes me by that I don’t think of her and how she won’t be mine. I can’t begin to express how painful it is to finally come to terms with the fact that Olivia Pope, the woman who I’ve fallen in love with who I thought loved me too, truly doesn’t want me.
For so long I believed that she was just going through her own issues but I guess I was kidding myself. Now it’s time to get back to reality. The reality is Olivia Pope will never be mine because she doesn’t want to be mine. I’m just another pawn in her game.
The three of us together. Some may see the worst in Mellie and Cyrus but the truth is they’ve been loyal to me. They’re the only two who have been loyal to me. They’ve been true friends. Especially Cyrus. Cyrus is my best friend and I know all that he does comes from a good place. He has a big heart. Love you Cy!
Tony Goldwyn: Thank u for brining Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll to life
I truly don’t think any other actor would have made like r love Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll like Tony Goldwyn has. I don’t think Fitz would b so loved if Tony Goldwyn didn’t play him. Tony brings such a unspeakable human quality to Fitz that I truly don’t think was suppose to b there. I think Shonda Rhimes wanted us to see Fitz as a spoiled rich entitled man who is handed everything and makes everyone around him do bad things even if he doesn’t ask. But fans saw thru that because of Tony Goldwyn portrayal of Fitz. He made Fitz b seen as a,person who is flawed yet he human and learns from his mistakes and always tries to b a better person. He made us see his love for Olivia wasn’t just a,sex thing but he loved all of her her mind body spirit. He made us love how he is a true friend even when those friends let him down. Thank u Tony for bring out the great qualities of Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll and always standing up for his character. I feel like ppl don’t get what a extremely extraordinary job Tony Goldwyn has done with his portrayal of Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll
Complete bullshit from beginning to end. It is quite clear that you have chosen to watch this show through a haze of Fitz Derangement Syndrome and create a narrative that is acceptable to you (much like the writers of this fuckshit).
FACT: Fitz and Mellie were never about love. She allowed herself to be whored into an arranged marriage (218) in exchange for her own political future. She herself said they were never in love, but partners (202). It was simple: marry Fitz, get him to the WH, ride his coattails to a political career of her own. They were making a go of the marriage until the rape.
Instead of telling her husband or the police or cutting Jerry’s dick off, she chose to deal with it by blackmailing her rapist into supporting her husband’s political run—one that she wanted more than he did, as evidenced by her chasing down Cyrus in the shitpile that was 307. So she in fact did choose power over justice. You really tried it here, trying to lecture me about how rape victims cope—I already know firsthand how rape victims cope, so spare me. Then you tried to spin some pretend narrative about how her “love” for Fitz kept her from telling him because he’s such a delicate flower—something that has never, ever played out onscreen. So you are not only blaming Fitz for his father’s crime, but for her suicide attempt as well—which is just too moronic to be believed. Jerry and only Jerry is responsible for that shit. A year goes by, she’s had the baby that’s probably his brother, and has completely withdrawn from Fitz. It’s obvious from their convo that Fitz has been asking why for some time, and wants to know what he did wrong and how he can make it right. Mellie refuses to tell him, confides in Andrew & has an (emotional?) affair with him. You watch all this, and your take is that Fitz is a “self-absorbed twat” who just wants to fuck. Really? He’s not supposed to care that his marriage has changed drastically or ask any questions? Your bias is unreal.
Sacrifices, my ass. Mellie chose to give up her career and have kids she didn’t want (106) because it suited the role of supportive wife she wanted to project. Pretending is what’s real, after all (218). Getting Fitz where he wanted gets her where she wanted—nothing she did was for the love of Fitz. Mellie is simply a parasite doing what she could to preserve Fitz as her host, to ensure her survival. It is why, in the present, she is desperately clinging to a man who no longer wants her, has asked for divorce & has told her to her face that he is in love with another woman—instead of getting some dignity, self-respect, and a life. These are not “sacrifices”, these are poor life choices that she made, regrets, and needs to take responsibility for, instead for laying blame at Fitz’s feet. She definitely doesn’t get to hold A RAPE THAT HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT over Fitz’s head as a “sacrifice”. Again, she chose to deal with that as she saw fit, and has to accept responsibility for that has well. It is not a pass for all of the fucked-up things that she has done.
As for the Grant children, it has been shown that Fitz loves and cares about his kids, unlike the pretend version you’ve been watching. Mellie herself says she’s not maternal (217) and doesn’t like babies (213)—which is easy to believe since she risked killing Teddy by inducing a month early just to manipulate Fitz into stopping divorce talk (212). We’ve never seen J&K before 315, and Fitz has been shown spending time with Teddy for hours on end while Mellie watches, claiming she doesn’t know how he can stand it (214) and he keeps track of Teddy’s development (303). She, on the other hand, only bothers with him for photo ops, and hands him off to the nanny & Purrells herself to death once the camera is gone (213), and doesn’t even know that he can feed himself. Mellie admits that Teddy thinks Marta is his mother (303). Fitz was the one that didn’t want J&K in boarding school, either. So much for you being “pretty sure that he always looked miserable around his family”, and trying to make Mellie out as the better parent. Truly laughable, much like your post.
The only correct thing you’ve said is that they need a divorce.
Since a network a show runner and show will not acknowledge the reason they got to a 100 i will. Olitz was and always will b the draw to this show. Olivia Pope Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll together and sperately is why fans fought for a 2. But I guess n a show runner and network mind they forgot without these two there would have never ever been a second season much less a,100 episodes. Credit needs to b acknowledge and given to where it suppose to go. And the success of Scandal is because of Olitz.
😐 my face when they say scandal couldn’t make it to another season ummmm Scandal could have gone the distance if Shonda hadn’t played herself. She came up with these big storylines(b613, election rigging, Liv getting kidnapped, new illuminate) and now she can’t keep up with what she started. Scandal was good when we had cases and Olivia was being a badass and handling shit! Don’t tell me Scandal couldn’t have done more look at Law and Order: SVU, they basically have the same format every episode and people still watch! People still watching Grey after 13 seasons 🙄 And I saw somewhere she said she could only do “Olivia and Fitz” thing before ppl get tired of it (or some to that effect) uhhhhh stop the lies! I’m only watching scandal because of Olitz and just because they get together doesn’t mean it has to be the end of the show. Nor does it mean in a whole episode you have to show us olitz from beginning to end. My thing is we have been wanting to see them together, like actually together. You don’t have to give it to us in one go 🙄let us see them date! We were robbed of that one damn date we got 😤 I need to see some flirting hell! Some! 😂😂 And honestly I don’t mind that she wanted other characters to shine but the way she went about it 😒. For example Mellie, this woman ain’t never did anything in politics except that one time she stood up for that bill but yet we suppose to rally behind her to be the next president… where are her credentials ? Where 👏🏽are 👏🏽Mellies 👏🏽receipts👏🏽 ? It’s crazy how shonda let Mellie do Olivia but she turned around and needed her for EVERYTHING! She couldn’t get Fitz to do shit… she calling Olivia! She need a favor or help she calling Olivia! Mellie real deal thought Olivia was her “clean up woman” bitch this ain’t the help! I’m sorry but I could never get behind Mellivia 🗣ISSA NO. As a woman I can’t fuck with another woman(Mellie) who tries to shit on other women(Olivia) and then have the nerve to need her 😂 if I was Olivia I would have been went in on Mellie ass! Another example Pete Harris … I mean Jake Ballard 🙃 he could never compare to Fitz but it’s amazing how he tried to slither his way in every chance he got. Shonda real deal forced me to watch Scott fooley just because she killed him off her other show 😂😂😂! Jake was and still is weak, pathetic, jealous, toxic ass individual. He was programmed to “love” Olivia because Rowan “made him” 👈🏽 Rowan said these words to Olivia himself, he knew, she knew, hell we all knew it was not real. Olivia never told him she loved him and he said it to her how many times 😎 aw ok then‼️ Jake was suppose to take Fitz place in our hearts but we weren’t having that shit! There is only one Leading man of Scandal and that’s Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III (Tony G). Anyways I’m sad because I really love this show. Scandal is the first Tv show I’ve ever got so invested in 😢 I’m gonna enjoy it til the end, hopefully Shonda do it justice. I feel like we should get an Olitz wedding and realistically they would live in Georgetown because we know our Livvie is a working woman she not bout to go and live a housewife type of life. They gone vacation at the home in Vermont 🤗 because that’s our special place. That’s how she needs to wrap up Olitz all the other stuff she can do whatever with Fitz not in the White House no more so I’m not gonna be interested in anybody else being president so she might as well get a new format for season 7 😂😂 but whatever she do I’m watching cuz I love scandal even when I don’t agree with everything it’s still my favorite show because of Kerry, Tony and Olitz 😍 with they cute asses, my precious OTP and I’m still gonna write my fanfics because I love this couple.
omg! 0000.1 sec in and this episode is already killing me! Olivia and Fitz agreeing against Jake’s stupid ass :) and then the dream was also a way to prove his stupid ass wrong AGAIN!! like did he jut tell her that rigging an election was actually good for her ?? when all she’s been doing lately was to try and redeem herself for Defiance and she actually TOLD him that!! omg! he’s so stupid and useless but thankfully there were only 30secs of his ugly face in this episode^^
wait 2 months later isn’t that the same time jump amount than s7 ?? yea I know that doesn’t even mean anything^^
she was trying to hard to pretend she actually wanted to date someone but Abby knew! please make their friendship functional and get Mellie out of her hair already!!! I mean how could this work after the way she depicted her here?
gzroignzirngpizrngv she’s going to open the door…I’M NOT READDY
Omigawd!! I think I haven’t breathed for the entire scene
I came here to ask you to marry me. I don’t want you to tell me to think about this or give me reasons why you think it’s too soon. I want you to say yes. Because if you love me even half as much as I love you then it was worth the trip. Marry me Oliviz Pope.
okay first of all can we just appreciate the fact that Fitzgerald Thomas Grant the III is just perfect in every reality ??? and the best thing is that SHE actually imagined him saying that witch means that she knows he’s perfect :)
SHE also imagined a whole fairy tale style wedding so don’t tell me she doesn’t him and that it’s not the endgame…
“you all I need to get by” 🎼
I also love to think that this song was included in her dream because damn the feels :’(:’(:’(
and now the bouquet final :
I didn’t even think I wanted anything before not until I met you. You tried to give me freedom, you tried to give me a chance to find happiness and I squandered it. That is on me…only me. And that’s why I’m sorry. I didn”t recognize it, I didn’t understand it. I wasn’t thinking; It took me far to long to realize..I have things to figure out. I have work, a lot of work to do if there’s any hope of becoming the woman man I know I can be, the man woman you deserve. I still want you Olivia Fitz, if you’ll still have me
well, I think we all agree that she was the one talking here and I’m so happy for her!! This dream was so realistic it helped her see the errors of her ways. Until she met him she didn’t know what she wanted she was just trying to make daddy proud but then she never dared to give them a chance because it scared her but now that she’s faced her problems she can take the matter into her own hands :
and because this episode was a blessing that keeps giving until the very end the dream started to become true when she woke up and ran to him with a big smile on her face :) :):):)
one last thing before I go cry in the corner for the rest of the evening :
This thursday night the most epic Scandal episode will b rerun The Trail. The episode that made us see Olitz true love for each other. Season 1 Olitz. Y'all this is my favorite episode. This when Olivia Pope was Olivia Pope and Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll was Fitz. This is the only episode i will support
