*Faris and Yousra join Papyrus and Alphys on the other side of the
portal. The portal brings them to a public park located within their hometown
so to avoid attention from night owls that may be wandering the streets*
Papyrus: *looks at the two, grinning* Been wondering when you two
would show up~
Faris: Sorry about the wait *he shows Papyrus a little smirk* So, how was
your portal experience?
Papyrus: Er… Kinda anticlimactic. You were right. It is like
walking through doors.. *his face then beams with a big smile* But it was still
pretty amazing how we made great distance in a single bound~ Straight from-wherever
we were-all the way to the park!
Faris: Heh, yeah..
Papyrus: So how do you make those portals work anyway? Can you
actually go wherever you want??
Faris: Only to areas I’m familiar with.
Alphys: *scans her
surroundings, then turns to the others* Okay, follow me. I will lead you to the
hospital. I-It’s not too far from here *she starts shuffling away, followed by
Papyrus, Faris, and Yousra*
*Alphys takes them out of the park, down a street until she meets
with an assemblage of buildings illuminated by street lights and room windows. They
enter through the automatic sliding doors and approach the front desk. Alphys pulls out a
lanyard containing her ID and shows it to the human receptionist*
Alphys: Th-These guests are with me. They have my permission to
enter the ER.
Receptionist: *checks the ID tag, then nods* You may proceed, Dr.
Alphys. Welcome back.
Alphys: Th-Thank you so much *she guides the group down the halls*
*Faris decides to start a small conversation with Papyrus as they follow her*
Faris: So Papyrus, about this donor.. What do you know about him?
Papyrus: Oh, he’s one of Alphys’ patients. He used to come here often
for treatments, but lately.. the treatments haven’t been working well, and he’s
been very sick, so he’s had to stay here to be looked after. I’ve visited him a
few times before while you were away. He’s a really nice guy! I
think you’ll like him!
*Faris falls silent. He didn’t know what to expect
of the donor. He had no idea how serious this illness was. He wondered if it’d affect him at all. Alphys didn’t seem all too concerned about it, or else she wouldn’t have permitted this kind of transplant in the first place*
*Alphys finally stops at a particular room, separated by large
glass doors and a curtain. After giving the glass a few light knocks, she
slides the door open and draws the curtain away. Inside the room are a couple
of medical beds, one currently being occupied by a young human male who appears
to be sleeping. A female fire monster is sitting beside him in a chair, her
flames producing a green overlay of light throughout the room. The fire
monster lifts her head up when she hears company arrive*
???: Aw welcome back, Dr. Alphys~
Alphys: *approaches the patient from the other side of the bed*
Hello, Fuku. How is our patient doing?
Fuku: He seems to be doing fine. He’s been resting.
Alphys: Have there been any complications?
Fuku: None that I’m aware of.
Alphys: I see. W-Well, thank you so much for watching over him
while I was away. You are dismissed.
Fuku: Of course~ *she bows, then slips past Papyrus and the
others, exiting the room*
Alphys: *lightly taps the patient on the shoulder* Andrew..
*the patient, named Andrew, stirs*
Alphys: I’m sorry to wake you this late in the night.. W-We have
Andrew: Ooh..? *he still sounds a little groggy after being
woken up. He tries to sit himself upright, but Alphys tells him to relax. She
goes on to elevate the head of the recliner slightly*
*Faris watches the two. The human is rather pale in appearance
with dark circles under his clouded green eyes. It’s apparent that he has
blonde hair, but it’s been shaved down to a fuzz, similar to a peach. A set of
nasal cannulas are arranged around his nostril area where he can gather oxygen.
Regardless of his condition, he still delivers a friendly smile*
Andrew: You must be the one I’ll be donating myself to… A pleasure to meet you at last..
*his tone is husky as he speaks, and he takes a short breath every
time he pauses. Looking at him makes Faris a little uneasy*
Andrew: *looks up at Alphys* Could you give us a few minutes..?
Alphys: *places her hand on his shoulder* Don’t push yourself too
hard *she then steps away, taking Papyrus along with her out of the room*
*Yousra is about to join the others in the hall until Andrew
Andrew: You may stay if you’d like..
*Yousra pauses, then stands beside Faris to keep him company. Faris eyes Andrew*
Faris: …Why… Why do you want to help me? You don’t even know me,
Andrew: *smiles warily* Just because I don’t know you, doesn’t
mean I can’t help you.. People help each other all around the world, whether they
are friends or complete strangers… It’s not uncommon…
Faris: But why? Why are
you willing to help me? What is there
for you to gain out of this??
Andrew: ..My freedom..
Faris: But by giving up your body, you would be giving up your
free will. How is that freedom?
Andrew: Is that really how you see it..? You think that
sacrificing myself will cost me my freedom..? Heh… Giving myself to you.. will
finally put my long fought battle to rest..
Faris: ..What do you mean?
Andrew: I’ve been fighting against this disease for a while now,
and I no longer respond well to treatments.. Typically people at this stage
would be turning to magic as a last resort in order to prolong life… but I refuse to do such a thing. I’m already satisfied with the life I’ve been given up to this point.. Now I want to give my body to someone else who needs it.. Someone like you *smiles*
*Faris turns away. He had to think about this for a moment*
Andrew: I don’t want you to
take this the wrong way.. By doing this, we would be helping each other…. You
would be ending my pain.. and I would be giving you a full life.
Faris: *looks at Andrew, then turns to Yousra, clasping her hand in his*
What do you think..?
Yousra: *gazes up at him* It really is up to you.
Faris: It’s just so sudden. I wish I had more time to
think this over… Are you really okay about this? About him.. being my vessel?
Yousra: As long as you are still you, it doesn’t matter to me how
your new body will look.
Faris: … *he nestles his nasal bone into her headscarf, letting
out a long sigh, then lifts his head to look at Andrew* …Okay… I’ll accept your
Andrew: Are you sure you want to go on with this..? I’ll
understand if you’d rather decline..
Faris: No.. this is something I’ve been wanting for a while now.. I’ll take this chance.
Andrew: *bows his head* Okay then.. *he then fidgets around for
a small wired controller and holds it daintily in his hand. With a press of the
button, a faint buzz resounds. Within seconds, Alphys pokes her head into the
Alphys: I-Is everything okay?
Andrew: *turns his attention to Alphys* Dr. Alphys.. we’re ready for the

Warning: (Y/M/N) is Your Mother’s Name, talking of family issues, swearing.
“Am I seeing you tomorrow, Jus?” You confidently asked your best friend as you decided to go directly home after your classes. You were in the hallway, in front of your now-closed locker.
“Of course, pretty.” He winked at you and you let out a loud laugh. He was a great flirt and that was one of the characteristics you loved in Justin.
“Shut up, sweet talker!” You tried to cover the romantic excitement that flowed in your veins and he just hugged you as he knew that you loved it whenever he would compliment you.
“Take care, okay?” He reminded you as you nodded for several times to answer. You hugged him back.
“Just get together already!” Your friend Jessica exclaimed as she got through you and Justin along the hallway. She winked and you saw that Sherie agreed with her. They were surely making their way to the gym for the cheerleading practice.
“But they’re already together.” Zach shouted to the girls as he shut his locker and followed them.
“Idiots!” You shouted as you broke the hug between the two of you. “I’m going now, Mr. Foley.”
“Alright, Mrs. Foley.” You both laughed loudly. He started to call you in that way, because you both had to pretend that you were husband and wife the day before. Some maniacs were trying to hit on you and he came up with that idea, it sucked but you loved it.
“You should take care too, okay? Don’t break a bone during your basketball practice.” You reminded him after you left a quick kiss on his cheek.
“Yes, Mum!” He rolled his eyes and gave you a kiss on your temple. With that kiss, you felt protected and it felt that Justin was with you, even though he’s not walking you home that day.
“Go on or you’ll be late.” You smiled at him as you both went in separated ways.
“Text me as soon as you get home, okay?” He walked in backwards as he wanted to see if you were already walking away.
“Yes, sir!” You huffed as you wanted to stay with him a little longer, but you had projects to finish and coach Patrick never let people to enter the gym during his teams’ practices.
You slowly walked back home and Justin never left your thoughts. He stayed in your mind even when you were doing your homework.
You loved Justin, because who wouldn’t, and he made you happy every time. He could be considered as an asshole by some students, but you knew that he had a kind heart. He could be weak too, mostly when it came to his family, but you always knew how to cheer him up and how to mend his broken heart.
People has always thought that you were together, because you couldn’t be you without Justin and Justin couldn’t be him without you. You completed each other, even though you were just best friends. You flirted and sometimes people mistook your actions, but you never admitted your feelings to him. You were obviously shy to admit it, you thought that it was flustering because you didn’t know if he felt the same towards you, even though his friends said that the feeling was mutual.
“(Y/N)!” Your mum called as dinner was ready and you didn’t notice it as you were so focused on finishing your Communications’ project and thinking of Justin. “Dad’s not home before 10 pm and he told me to not wait for him.”
“I’m coming.” You shouted as you ran downstairs, stopping in front of the front door when you heard the bell ringing. “I’m opening it.”
“Sure!” Your mum shouted from the kitchen as you heard the glasses clinking while she was preparing the table.
“Justin!” You worriedly called his name as you opened your front door. You were happy to see him, of course, but not after seeing his dull gaze. “What happened?”
“Can I,” he started as you saw him angry and down at the same time. “is it all right if I crash here tonight?” He bit his lower lip as he looked at the ground. He was so shy to ask you some favours, although you’ve been best friends for a long time now.
“Of course, Jus!” You sadly smiled at him as you already hinted that something was wrong in his house. You let him enter the house and you closed the door behind you. “Have you already eaten?”
“Uhm,” He felt more relaxed and relieved that he finally found someone who could help him for the night, although you were really his first choice. “not really.”
“Then have dinner with us.” You smiled as him as you pulled his hand and headed to the kitchen.
“Good evening, (Y/M/N)!” Justin politely greeted and your mum flashed him a sweet and welcoming smile. You let his hand go as you took his blue sports bag off his shoulder.
“Good evening, Justin.” Your mother greeted. “Have you had your dinner yet?”
“He didn’t, Mum.” You answered for Justin as you knew that he was feeling a little bit uncomfortable. After all this time, he was still shy around your mother.
“Oh, eat with us!” Your mother panicked as she put an extra plate with a glass and the cutlery.
“Thank you.” Justin warmly smiled as he felt loved. You knew that he didn’t get much attention from his mother like how you did and he had serious problems at home, that was why you always tried to be there for him.
The three of you sat on your places and you shared a warm and delicious food together.
“Mum,” You seriously called her attention as you carefully chewed your food. “can Justin stay for the night?”
“Yes, of course! The guest room is always ready for him.” Your mother smiled sadly as she sensed that Justin had his family problems once again. It wasn’t the first time that Justin was crashing in your place and he has been welcomed by your parents with their arms widely opened.
“Thank you, really.” Justin was overwhelmed for the help that he was receiving and it made you love him even more because he knew how to appreciate the small things.
“Justin, you are always welcome in our family. Don’t hesitate to ask for help, okay?” Your mother reminded and Justin smiled while nodding in response. After dinner, Justin helped you to clear the table and to wash the dishes.
“Jus,” You called him as you turned the faucet off and wiped your hands to dry them. “do you want to watch the stars?”
“Cheesy night ahead?” He winked at you and his gaze became bright once again. You knew that he felt better, but you still wanted to talk about it. He couldn’t keep his resentments to himself.
“Don’t you like it, Mr. Foley?” You hugged him from behind while he was drying the last plate.
“I do, Mrs. Foley.” He responded and you just let out some cute giggles. After some seconds, he put the last plate on its place and he wiped his hand using the towel.
You and Justin then headed to your house’s roof with two blankets and some chocolate bars. You used to do this when you were little and you would fall asleep on the roof while watching the stars with your parents.
Justin fixed one blanket on the flattened part of the roof and you both lied down on the blanket as you admired the starry sky.
“These stars are so bright.” You commented, being amazed at the protuberances that you were seeing.
“But those stars aren’t as bright as my life with you.” Justin sweetly said as he looked at you and you suddenly felt the heat in your cheeks.
“Aw, Justin!” You were flattered and you wouldn’t deny that. He knew how to make you smile and, in fact, he flashed you his warm smile when he saw you smiling.
“(Y/N), I am so happy to be with you right now.” He looked back at the sky and he sighed as he thought of his situation at home.
“And I am happy to have you here, Justin.” You smiled at him as you saw that he was focused at admiring the dark sky.
“And I thank you for that.” He seriously said, searching for your hand as a tear ran down his face. “Seth’s been stressing me since he came back to my mother. I was already happy that they broke up, but my mother kept on welcoming him home, although she knew that he would hurt me, although he hurts her too.”
“Jus, your mother has just loved somebody that couldn’t appreciate things. He’s an asshole, I know that, but it wasn’t your mother’s fault.” Justin intertwined his fingers with yours as you explained him how the things really were.
“I know, it’s just that I don’t feel that my mother cares about me anymore. I mean, she would stumble to serve that reckless ungrateful man as if she’s a maid.” Justin sighed as he worried of his mother. He cared for his mum and you couldn’t deny how great he was as a son.
“Justin,” you faced him and caressed his cheek with your free hand. “it’s not fair, but your mother is blinded by her love. Unluckily.” You sighed. “I am sure, though, that she cares about you. She’s just afraid to show it, because Seth hates you to death. She’s afraid of the consequences.”
“What a fucked-up situation.” He bit his lower lip as he shook his head, switching his gaze from the sky to your face.
“I know, but I am here for you Justin.” You caught each other’s glances and he smiled at you.
“Honestly?” You put on your questioning look and he looked at your lips and then he looked back at your eyes. “My world got better since you came into my life.”
“Aw, Justin.” You flashed him your flattered and touched smile. “You’re the sweetest.”
“It’s the truth and I would never lie to you.” Justin caressed your cheek as he tucked a strand of hair covering your face.
“Why is that?” You put your hand on his and you caressed it with your thumb. Your hand was small compared to his and you were amazed because it was so soft and smooth for a boy.
“Because I’m falling deeper in love with you.” He confessed his feelings and you felt the heat and the burning sensation in your face one more time. “I love you, (Y/N) and I don’t want to lose you.” He was brief, but he knew how to explain his hidden feelings.
“Justin, you are the sweetest person ever.” You bit your lower lip and he flashed you his sweetest smile, that smile that you loved the most in him. “And you would never believe it, but I love you too, for a while too.”
“Really?” His eyes grew wide as the words flushed in his mind.
“Really!” You gave him your confirmation and his smile grew bigger, just as big as yours, teeth confidently showing.
He leant in as he was about to close the gap between the two of you. He was really a gentleman, even though he seemed an asshole. “Can I?”
“Is that even a question to ask?” You winked at him and you leant in a little bit closer as you both laughed loudly.
You both moved forward and you closed the gap between the two of you. The cold breeze of air stung your skins and the stars shone up in the sky while you shared a long and sweet passionate kiss.
You waited for that moment to happen for a more than a century now and you couldn’t believe that it happened as you felt butterflies playing in your stomach.
You surely were happy and, like Justin, you were falling deeper in love with him too.
Where to begin with this episode? Well, for starters it was all about DRAMA. Seriously. And the drama came from the dialogue between characters, not necessarily from the plot.
We start off the episode with an Olitz moment. Olivia is in bed with Fitz at the White House and she is wearing his Navy t-shirt once again (something I was so glad to see). Olivia wakes up momentarily confused about where she is and then rolls over to see a sleeping Fitz. She seems a little startled and uncertain of what to do, so she quietly rolls out of bed leaving him asleep. Now, I was somewhat disappointed that she did this, BUT I can only assume that it has been 24 hours since their make-up session and 1) we don’t know if she and Fitz have talked in the intervening time and 2) it’s probably still a lot for her to take in (being back with Fitz). So, I am going to give her a break for this one…
The next big scene we get is Olivia visiting Papa Pope in the bunker where Fitz has courteously sent breakfast. Right off the bat, Rowan is his usual old self, shutting down Olivia and manipulating her ability to properly communicate by claiming he needs to leave immediately. Seconds later, before Olivia can even respond, Fitz walks in and plants a “good morning/hello” kiss on her lips in front of Papa Pope and, let’s just say, Rowan isn’t happy AT ALL that Fitz has the nerve to do that in front of him (cue the “Mr. Pope, Mr. President” dialogue). After their impromptu argument (which Olivia desperately tries to mediate), Rowan goes to leave, only to realize he cannot. As it turns out, Fitz’s courtesy only extends so far; for him, Rowan is still a prisoner (who could really blame Fitz? The man killed his son, so his irritation/anger is understandable). On a side note, I couldn’t quit grinning at Fitz’s salty af attitude (cue the “do I look like a travel agent?” question) and the fact that he employed his best French accent when noting that Papa Pope could “eat as many of his croissants as he would like”… After realizing that he cannot leave the White House (thanks to Fitz and Olivia), Rowan sits down and pretends to busy himself by reading a newspaper, while Fitz and Olivia remain in the room. Angry that they haven’t left, Rowan turns around, slams his newspaper on the table, and tells them to GET OUT.
Next, we see Abby going through some PTSD-like memories of her recent actions while she is in bed with Leo. Poor Leo takes her unwillingness to talk as a sign that he has done something wrong, to which Abby tries to tell him it isn’t him, only to no avail. We end the scene with an angry Abby storming out of the bedroom, presumably to get dressed for work. This is followed by a scene of Mellie and Ponytail Lady discussing Mellie’s new role as PEOTUS. Mellie presents Ponytail with a list of who she would like in her cabinet and insists that she should be able to pick her advisors, only to have her plan shot down by Ponytail. She is reminded that both Peus and Ponytail have bugged all of her devices and that her new assistant (aka some mysterious woman we have never seen before) will be keeping a close eye on her, should she try anything.
The next big scene that occurs is Olivia’s confrontation with Peus who has conveniently decided to hold his meeting at OPA. Huck, scared for Olivia, refuses to let her be alone with him. The Peus/Olivia meeting is rather interesting. Peus attempts to intimidate Olivia in order to get her to cave to his demands (which include taking Jake off the VP ticket and having Mellie announce that her new VP will be Peus). When Olivia notes that she won’t be bothered so easily, Peus lets her know he has photos of Jake cleaning up Elizabeth North’s dead body and that he will use them, if he finds it necessary. Olivia, realizing that Peus cannot win if he releases the photos, tells him to go ahead and destroy Jake, noting that they will implicate Peus and Ponytail, as well, if exposed. Peus genuinely seems surprised, as if he had not considered the ramifications of that scenario, but bluffs his way out of the situation with more threats. Olivia, realizing she has won this battle, escorts him to her office door and let’s him know she has made it her mission to destroy him.
Meanwhile, Ponytail has coerced Mellie into a meeting at the White House where she will “demand” to use the press briefing room/podium to announce her new VP candidate. Fitz has already been briefed on this situation and just when Ponytail begins making her demands/threats, the scene is interrupted by secret service barging into the room and scooping everyone up, noting that a drone has breached the WH grounds no-fly zone (thanks to Huck who is remotely controlling the device). As the secret service are quickly escorting people down the halls of the WH, Ponytail and Abby are separated from the rest of the group and taken to the bunker. Abby, being the brilliant gladiator that she is, quickly appears to have set this whole situation up with Fitz, Olivia, and OPA so that the team could figure out a way to rescue Mellie. Ponytail, however, is not taking her separation from Mellie well and demands to be let out of the bunker. Abby, playing the “I-am-as-clueless/powerless-as-you” card, tells her to sit down and buckle up because they’re stuck in the bunker for a while.
Upstairs, in the Residence, we see everyone else (Fitz, Olivia, Mellie, Cyrus, Marcus, David, and Jake) has gathered for a meeting to figure out a way to take out Peus/Ponytail. The meeting starts off relatively well (if one discounts a shaken up Mellie), but quickly turns chaotic when Rowan shows up. We discover that Olivia has requested that he be a part of the meeting solely because he has “expertise” in these situations. Unfortunately, the minute Papa Pope shows up, what could have been a normal strategizing session quickly goes to shit, with the tension and drama becoming PALPABLE.
Fitz, who is quite unhappy at having Rowan there in the first place - but has swallowed his anger for Olivia’s sake (seriously, this man has the patience of a saint) - is forced into a disgustingly degrading situation where he must BEG Rowan for help. Rowan, being the manipulative asshole he is, demands that Fitz ask him for help, out loud, in front of everyone else (who, apart from Cyrus, Jake, Olivia, and Mellie) appear a little clueless as to the nature of their hatred towards each other. During this incredibly intense scene, Olivia (knowing and seeing where this is going) tries to get Rowan to stop, but cannot. We see Fitz’s jaw clench and you can almost feel him fighting to not get up and beat the shit out of Rowan right there. Fortunately, whatever the hell Fitz is doing to control his anger works because he ends up asking for help. HOWEVER, Rowan - again being the annoying and manipulative son of a bitch he is - decides that once is not enough and demands AGAIN that Fitz beg him for help. Fitz, fighting his emotions again, caves to Rowan’s “”“request”“”. As if this isn’t enough (I mean the man is literally pleading with his son’s killer to help him) Rowan says that “No” he won’t help Fitz..
Now, when I saw/heard that I was ready to jump through the TV screen and beat the fuck out of Rowan. You DONT force the man who’s son you killed to BEG for you help in front of everyone else only to say no… But, this scene ACTUALLY GOT WORSE!!! Rowan ended up basically calling Olivia a whore in front of EVERYONE and you could hear the gasps/see the jaw drops. He said that the only reason Fitz had him in the WH was so that he could sleep with Olivia again and that Rowan’s safety was nothing more than “another dollar bill at the feet of a stripper”. That “stripper”, he says, is Olivia… On top of that, Rowan made a dig at Fitz’s father and for Fitz that was THE LAST STRAW. He charged towards Rowan like he was gonna beat the shit out of him right there (tbh I wanted him too). The ONLY reason he didn’t was because Jake and David managed to hold him back…
Y'all I was screaming I was so mad. Goddamn that man. I want to see Rowan’s ass killed TF off. He is TOXIC AF for everyone and I mean EVERYONE because as soon as that bombshell was dropped, the whole room erupted into chaos and EVERYONE started arguing/going after each other. Olivia ends up calling for 5 and what should’ve been a comfort moment for her and Fitz turned into Olivia (who was visibly shaken) saying “don’t” and walking out to find some fresh air along with everyone else.
Then we get Cyrus and Rowan drinking in the cellar of the WH. That was interesting for 2 reasons. 1) Cyrus and Rowan almost looked/acted like work colleagues socializing over a glass of wine and 2) Cyrus tried to kill Rowan (too bad he didn’t succeed)… (Interesting tidbit from the setting of that scene though. Apparently Fitz added the cellar to the WH and seems to have stocked it with only wines/scotch 😉).
Anyways, around the time of the Cyrus/Rowan blow up, David and Fitz have a conversation that is just EVERYTHING. David questioned why he always falls in love with women who are like “tornados”, wondering why he couldn’t simply like “normal girls”. Fitz, being the precious bae he is, tells him that when he was younger he would imagine having a perfect and attentive wife who unquestioningly stood in the shadow of her husband, but then realized that it wasn’t what he wanted. He basically said that strong, powerful women, who cause him heartache and pain, are far better because they helped him become the man he is - a better man. So, Fitz says to David, if you love a woman who is like a “tornado” it’s okay because as long as she loves you, she can be as crazy as she wants/needs to be (cue my gross sobbing over his heart-to-heart).
While David and Fitz are bonding over their tumultuous romances with women, Jake and Olivia have a convo and, naturally, it made me want to throw up. The primary reason for this is that Jake tried to weasel his way back into Olivia’s arms via the sympathy card and attempted to entice her with running away again and how Fitz wasn’t good for her, and so on… (Jake give me a fucking break and quit talking BS into Olivia’s ear). Fortunately, Olivia shut that down IMMEDIATELY and let him know he wasn’t welcome to talk to her about that again, noting that she was there to help Mellie, not play the “choose me” game.
Finally, FINALLY we get to the ending of the episode and it’s revealed that the new VP isn’t going to be Cyrus Beene (so much for that unity ticket, though I commend Cyrus for being man enough to voluntarily give it up), but rather Luna Vargas… Now, I am confused as hell as to how tf the writers came up with that, but I’ll take it if it fixes this whole mess. As the episode continues to draw to a close, we see that Quinn and Charlie will be staying together and that though she loves Huck, it’s different from what she feels with Charlie.
For the concluding scene we go back to Abby and Ponytail hanging out in the bunker (still arguing about who’s in control) and then it’s revealed that Abby was duping Ponytail all along (which is not really a surprise at this point). Ponytail is furious that she has been played and naturally starts up with her threats again, but she’s interrupted by Olivia walking through the door… Now, I swear when I saw Olivia walk through those doors in the bunker it gave me flashbacks to that episode where she killed Andrew and for a moment I thought she was going to take a chair to Ponytail. Thankfully, she didn’t. She “kindly” let Ponytail know she had lost and that she would be arrested (cue Olivia’s “You can’t take Olivia Pope. Olivia Pope takes you” quote). Interestingly, Olivia is now saying she’s Mellie’s chief-of-staff, but we’ll have to wait and see how that plays out over the rest of the season.
Overall, I was not too thrilled with this episode, but it did have some good scenes stashed in between the bad ones. That dramatic scene with Rowan and the team still has me shook, but it’s looking like next week’s episode might remedy that (from the preview it looks like Fitz and Olivia are going to realize that working with Rowan is a mistake. Also, poor Fitz is at his wits end I guess because in the preview he grabs Rowan up by the collar quite violently - but who could blame him?). Until then, we will have to wait and see what’s in store for everyone.
Their Importance: Dizzee is the oldest of the four Kipling siblings, he joins his two brothers and the main protagonist, in the the a new group called The Get Down Brothers. He also has been shown to be a very talented artist and is often painting graffiti when he is not with his friends.
One night when spraying graffiti, the police help him to escape but he is able to escape with the help of another boy who is revealed to be ‘Thor’ a street artist who he admires. It is with Thor that he is taken to a ‘LGBT’ club.
In Part 2, Thor has been arrested for vandalism but Dizzee continues to send artwork to him. In these comics, he depicts himself as an alien which is symbolism for him being both a mlm and being black. Once Thor is out of prison, he is shown to he supporting Dizzee by coming to his shows and in one scene he even admits being in love with him.
Issues: An issue with Dizzee is that the word bisexual is never said out loud, but since the show is set in the 1970s and he is hesitant to come out to anyone but in one scene ‘Shaolin Fantastic’ tells him “I’ve got you my alien brother. “ as a possible reference to knowing about his romance. There has also never been an on screen kiss of the two.
