There’s alot more bt these r the one’s I remember off the top of my head. I actually like the entire fandom whether I agree or nt with their opinion bcuz it brings more theories to the discussions. So u can add all lolsss bt chk out their blogs and see for yourself. I dnt get bogged into any “stans” im an olitzer in general meaning I look out for both fitz and olivia. These r cool ppl.
I hope I was helpful and im honored that you asked me :)
I really enjoyed this episode but then I went on Tumblr...
what is wrong with you people ?? I mean Fitz is the most compassionate and humble and loving man on the planet show !
When Olivia was arrested he didn’t judge her right away, he freed and kissed her hands because he just couldn’t believe it, he was convinced of her innocence and when she told him the truth he listened to her despite being shocked and hurt and then he came back to her and he thanked her ??
and he had her moved into the WH…okay he didn’t ask but c’mon !! he didn’t turn his back on her, on them when even she was sure that he would never forgive her ! he was not being creepy or a controlling asshole and she was not afraid she was confused ! you want fear ? remember that scene last week when Jake blamed her for his ‘wife’ murder after breaking into her apartment ?
so what’s the excuse this time ? because he’s no longer married so can you just cut the cheater crap already ?? so what is it ? bc it appears that whatever he does or says he is always the fuckboy even when he never judged her for anything even for the death of his son when Jake didn’t hesitate one second…with this turn of event people say that he’s gone crazy but if he had kicked her out they probably would’ve said that he was a selfish crybaby bc she did that for him blablablah, the hypocrisy is just insane he just can’t win…
Hahah Olake is winning and Olitz is forever losing
Firstly, But what the mother cunt is this? I have been very vocal that I don’t fuck with Olitz anymore and I don’t care who is winning or not
Secondly, Y'all acting like Olivia is a prize. The bitch is crazy as fuck so yeah y'all dumb olakers deserve her dumb, easy to manipulate, on a journey to nowhere, side hoe, colourful yet ugly clothes wearing, idiotic, always gonna lose to Rowan, think she is a badass but really is mediocre ass. Now run along and then the devil you didn’t see me. The further Fitz is away from her incest ass the better for him
PS. I am not about to let you come into my inbox with all that shit without giving you some parting words:- The only reason y'all precious olakey is winning is because SF is sucking Zilla boner. So y'all have him to thank for that.
Scandal Review, Episode 411 Where's The Black Lady?
Guys, this was another good episode, everybody had a purpose, there were no extraneous bodies hanging around. Go writers, go!
So this episode saw Kerry doing her thing once again and totally owning her show. Man I am so down for this. Olivia was a badass and that’s what I want to see forever and ever amen, during the rest of this show.
With that being said, although I really loved the episode , I felt that there was way too much suspension of disbelief needed for me to believe that Andrew somehow has all this power on the show. In fact, fuck that, I don’t believe it.
Anyway let’s get on with my likes and dislikes during this episode:
What I Hated
Yeah, I know, you were all expecting me to say Jake this episode, and yeah, I’m going to always hate his character, but he didn’t annoy the crap outta me like he usually does.
Scott Foley always does a better job when he’s not trying to convey emotion, because by god he sucks at that. Give him action scenes with barely any dialogue and he’s tolerable. I actively ignored his presence the entire episode because I was able to, and that was fine by me.
2. Charlotte? Charlotte? Where the fuck is Lauren?
Why can’t Fitz keep a secretary for longer than 6 months? What is up with that?
3. “The Vice President thought you would have trouble following his instructions"
Secret service agents walking into the Oval apparently on Andrew’s say so and threatening the president of the United States of America? On what freaking planet?So I’m supposed to believe that Andrew, a two bit politician who only got into his position because Fitz’s old VP went crazy and left, wields all this power in the White House?Really? REALLY?
The man literally has enough power to command the secret service, yet he only got the VP job by accident? Why is he not president? Seriously. I don’t believe for a moment that Andrew is in charge, I don’t believe that the writers would drop such a big-ass plot hole, in a season when they need to do better. Nope. For me, there’s either another Big Bad, or Rowan is behind this.
4. "They don’t call this the crown jewel of the American prison system for nothing"
So, hold up, this secret service agent knows what Fitz said to Olivia back in episode 201? Whut? How does this kidnap plot NOT have Rowan written all over it?
So either this guy has been in the White House at least since Fitz became president, or somebody fed him that information?If he’s been in the White House since the beginning of Fitz’s presidency, why is he suddenly taking orders from Andrew Nichols? Andrew. Let me bring up his picture to remind you all of who I’m talking about.
Yeah, this guy.Nope, I just don’t believe that the writers are this stupid, I just can’t believe it. Nope, nope, nope.
Either Rowan is behind this, or there’s somebody way more powerful pulling the strings.
5. Ian perving at Olivia’s naked body while she washed.
Wow, I hate him. Although, it has to be said, I still don’t hate him quite as much as I hate The Human Vibrator, but whatevs…
6. Ian putting his dirty, perverted hands on Olivia.
What I liked
1. ”With all I have to get home to, who do you put on the guest list for your arranged marriage to an opportunistic sex worker?“
Cyrus, king of shade.
2. "I started sleeping with Andrew again”
Said the wife to her husband oh so casually.
Remind me again why Shonda and co write this kinda stuff, and yet insists on keeping these two people in the union from hell?
3. “I thought being with him would make me happy the way that being with Olivia makes you happy."
I loved this scene whilst being slightly horrified by it. I can’t fathom such a relationship, I really can’t.
And I hurt for Fitz because at this point he doesn’t know whether to trust that she’s not in cahoots with Andrew. Personally, I still don’t trust her. She definitely has her own agenda.
Mellie trying to find a relationship like Fitz and Olivia’s? Damn, I almost felt sorry for her. I said almost.
4. "I need a glass of water please"
That’s my badass Olivia. Held captive, but still using that immense brain.
We all knew that when she asked for a glass of water that it was going to be some kind of sign to her people right?
5. "Someone took Olivia, tell me what you know”
Yay for Huck appearing like your worst nightmare to kill you while you sleep.
I’m here for Huck when he’s being a menacing Gladiator trying to protect his boss.
6. “You need to calm down Liz"
So Liz didn’t know what Andrew was planning? He is definitely not the puppet master here, he just can’t be. This smells of Rowan, it smells of Rowan or another unknown powerful enemy that we perhaps have yet to meet.
7. "This war was your idea from day one"
This is why I’m crying no tears for Elizabeth. She got in bed with a psycho who turned out to be sleeping with the FLOTUS at the same time. STDs indeed…
8. "It’s just you and me, and I’m going to be the next president of the United States”
Drippy Andrew? I just can’t.
9. Fitz’s flashbacks of him and Olivia on the trail and when they went to Constitution Hall and promised to stick together.
We all know how that ended, but it still put me in my Olitz feels.
10. “I’m sorry about Jerry, I didn’t have anything against him, he was a nice boy, but you are a man"
Scandal writers sure love their man/boy monologues while one of the characters are in chains.
The fact that Tom knew about the conspiracy to kidnap Olivia? Do we still believe that that ratchet Andrew is the mastermind behind all of this?
He keeps on that Helen of Troy ish though, which is obviously why Fitz had such a hard time deciding what to do. His country, or the woman he loves?
Why yes people, that seems like a really easy decision to make. I’m rolling eyes really hard at those imbeciles who somehow failed to understand what a hard decision that might be for a sitting president. Yes, I called you imbeciles, you know who you are.
11. "Where can you speak privately? The Only place you could ever speak privately”
Did anybody else guess Liv’s apartment? Because I had no clue. It made sense of course, and I liked that Olivia’s apartment was referred to as basically the only place that Fitz could be who he was. Another crumb for Olitzers I see.
12. Fitz arranging to meet Jake at Olivia’s apartment to hand over the footage of Olivia’s hostage plea video.
I liked this scene a lot. Once again Scott Foley works best when his face doesn’t have to contort into any recognizable emotion. He ain’t about that decent-actor-portrays-intense-emotion life. He has one look, he just needs to work on that one look, and he’ll be fine.
13. “It’s not going to work, using me as bait. The president doesn’t negotiate with terrorists."
Oh Liv, you know better than that. The man would burn the world for you, and somehow you still don’t believe that you’re no Amanda Tanner to him.
14. "Clinton bombed Serbia so that we’d forget about Monica"
Bill Clinton is forever being shaded on this show and as much as I fucks with him, I love it.
15. "Out there, someone else has the power, real power. They make the demands, you follow orders, you’re a pawn, puppet"
Badass Liv is badass.
16. "I can reach out to foreign contacts, Interpol, Mossad, MI6”
Jake, who the fuck are you trying to kid?. You don’t know anybody worth knowing. You are literally the worst spy in all of TV Land. Dude, you spent two months with Olivia, and you never once noticed the ring that she wore. A ring that is easily identifiable as Liv’s. You suck at life.
17. “Excuse me where’s the black Lady?"
So a random black woman comes looking for Olivia, and nobody bothers to seriously question her?
17. "Excuse me for talking out of turn, but that’s too long a wait”
I know I wasn’t the only one who wanted to stab Andrew when he interrupted Fitz in the Situation Room.
18. Cyrus - “Fitz hates the Vice President” Abby - “We all hate the Vice President”.
So many lols. Cyrus sure hates being kept out of the loop when it comes to Fitz doesn’t he?
19. Quinn - “Nothing from your contacts?”
THV - “Nothing”
Are any of us surprised that Jake’s “contacts” gave him nothing?
20. "If you scream I’ll break her neck, snap it like a twig“
I have so much love for this OG version of Huck.
It was like welcoming back an old friend. Truly.
I know I should feel bad about the fact that Huck played Slice The Blonde White Lady’s Back Into Ribbons, but…
21. Fitz’s paranoia.
Poor man. I could feel his stress from a mile away. I can’t believe that this guy doesn’t have an army of loyal folks at his disposal.
22. ”What kind of president would I be? What kind of monument if I indulged in a war if I sent thousands of people to their deaths to save the life of one person, no matter who that person is to me?“
For the Comprehension-Challenged folks who didn’t understand Fitz’s struggle, the above is the exact reason. And if you still can’t see how impossible a situation Fitz was in, you’re an idiot. You really are, and I’m sorry about that. Do you need a hug?
I read somewhere that Fitz going to Mellie about Liv showed how weak he was. Once again, whoever wrote that….
But for the benefit of the unenlightened, let me explain: Fitz is caught between a rock and a hard place, and the two factions of himself are at war (pardon the pun). The president knows that he can’t negotiate with terrorists and put thousands of lives at risk of death for one woman, and the man who loves Olivia just wants to do what he needs to, to save her, regardless of who he has to sacrifice.
23. "I thought you loved her? Don’t tell me we’ve been through all this for a cheap screw"
Anybody who thinks that the Mellie who chased her husband’s ex mistress down the White House corridors demanding she leave her house, is the same Mellie who would tell her husband to go to war for said mistress is fooling themselves. Mellie only ever does things that benefits one person. Mellie.
Having said that, I enjoyed the hell out of this scene, even if I’m a little horrified by the state of this union. Mellie and Fitz have a kind of terrible chemistry that makes for compelling viewing.
24. "My fellow Americans, moments ago, under my orders, American forces began the first stages of military operations in the effort to free West Angola.”
Is it possible to be horrified and slightly turned on all at once?
I can’t tell you how much I hated that Fitz started military operations, and gave in to that snake Andrew, but my little dormant shipper heart couldn’t help but root for his love for Olivia.
By the way, to the imbecile who was stupid enough to say that Fitz was the only person who didn’t help Liv? You are a freaking idiot. You obviously missed Fitz defying Andrew and. arranging to meet The Human Vibrator, Fitz going to war in order to keep Olivia alive and buying time for OPA, and Fitz doing what he could from the inside of the White House to make sure that she comes back to him alive.
25. Andrew sitting in Fitz’s seat.
My suspension of disbelief was creaking like a mother fucker at this point. Andrew is not this guy. He’s a drip drop drippity drip drop…
26. We now know what the poor murdered old woman was called. RIP Lois, we hardly knew ya. Let’s raise a drink to Lois. She lived a long and happy life. Until she decided to move next to Olivia Pope. Here’s to a life less ordinary. Take it away Leo…
27. “She wears it for him, she never takes it off"
Wait, what? I thought Shonda said that there was no back story to the ring?
I knew there had to be one! We all did! She never wore it before she met Fitz, she never wore it on the trail either. I need that flashback to the ring giving ASAP. You hear me Shonda, you owe us for having to put up with Labia Lips for all this time. YOU OWE US DAMMIT!!
*Ahem* Moving on…
I think that twitch on Scott’s face was an effort to show us that Jake was visibly affected to learn that Olivia has a ring that was given to her by the president that she never takes off, not even when she was pretending to be Julia Baker with him, 100 miles off the coast of Zanzibar. At least I think that’s what it was. I could be wrong, it could have just been him trying not to fart in the middle of filming.
I’m still amazed that he had to ask Huck if he was sure that the ring was Liv’s. Like whut? Jake Ballard is a terrible spy. Seriously dude…
28. So Ian was in the army?
Ok that doesn’t surprise me. I wonder if he served with Andrew? Is that how they know each other?
29. Fitz finally telling Cyrus.
30. "28 men and 3 women"
Some more deaths on Fitz’s conscience. Like he needed any more. Ugh.
31. "I want beef stew"
This made me laugh. Livvie stays demanding even when she’s the kidnappee.
By the way,anybody else wonder why she was sat on the floor with her legs akimbo? No? Just me then? OK.
32. Liz’s back after Huck had finished with her.
33. Mellie whoring herself out for a phone.
What’s with these writers and getting the ladies on this show to whore themselves out for phone apps. I can’t.
34. "It’s going to be me and you in the Oval from now on. It’s you and me”
Andrew is literally living on another planet.
35. “You’re sitting on one of the most valuable assets in the world and you’re not using it”
I am so here for this smart, quick thinking, conniving Olivia pope. I need her to be this person for the rest of the show’s lifespan.
36. “Do you want to be a baby-sitter or do you want to be a boss?"
Go on with your bad self Liv.
38. "I took care of everything"
This boob-graze that wasn’t a boob-graze will never not be funny to me.
Mellie laid it on Andrew so good that he passed out. Mellie has another plan, she didn’t sleep with Andrew just to help Fitz. She has bigger plans for herself. Bet on that. I still think she may somehow be involved…
39. "Then, it’s just the three of us? Bust in there and take on God knows how many armed mercenaries ourselves? Alright I’m down."
Bless Quinn and her trigger happy self, she has turned into that ride-or-die chick who happens to like killing people, and I’m here for it.
40. "I’m saving Olivia Pope”
Sooooo David’s still a character on the show then?
41 “Do you think she’s alive?"
Poor Huck and Quinn.
42. Olivia: "Hi"
Ma feels dammit! She looked so happy to speak to him at last, and the relief on his face. Waaaaahhhhhhh!!!
43. “I’m selling Miss Pope to the highest bidder”
Man, I got tears in my eyes, I was so freaking excited at the thought of Ian attempting to sell Olivia to Fitz’s enemies. Yeah, I know that makes me some kind of sicko, but I want to see where the hell this story is going.
44. “She’s alive”
Huck and Quinn to the rescue. Yesss!
Poor Fitz, he’s literally trapped in the crown jewel of the American justice system, and his beloved has been kidnapped. I can’t freaking wait until next week to see what happens.
So, now that Ian has his own agenda, where does that leave Andrew? I hope Fitz has him killed.
If Ian is putting feelers out to sell Olivia to the highest bidder, surely that means that the entire world will have confirmation that Olivia Pope and the president are more than just work friends?
Also, surely Rowan will hear about the sale wherever he is?
I still think that this is either Rowan’s doing, or another unknown master manipulator. Andrew is far too dumb to be this calculating.
You guys must have noticed how Olitz focused this episode was right? Fitz’s flashbacks of him and Olivia, the ring, Mellie telling Fitz that if he loves Olivia then he knows what he has to do? Ian telling Olivia how much Fitz loves her?
Because I’m so distrustful of the writers, I’m trying not to get my hopes up, because we all know that Shonda giveth with one hand, and taketh away with the other, but it sure feels good for now.
Anyway, let’s have some vintage Olitz gifs shall we?
This was on my tv tonight. I forgot how angry it made me and how pissed off I was. Can’t believe this was never addressed or never spoken up about from either kerry or shonda. And then he became her ‘boyfriend’
Really? I am sorry but No
This is why Olake fans are a disgrace and embarassment and it is beyond me why they exist.
Have you seen the spin that Shonda is putting out there about Scandal since Paley? Now she's saying that she never said or alluded to Olitz not being together --- even though several media outlets quoted her as doing so. Things must be bad if she's trying to walk it back as if it never happened.
Paley was a gigantic PR fiasco for her. Gigantic. The backlash was real and all the news outlets reported exactly what she said. She did say they weren’t going to be together and that Olivia couldn’t erase herself for Fitz so she had to go. Not to mention in another occasion she said, regarding both Fitz and Jake “Do either of them look like good life partners?” or something to that extent, making it clear neither was good (lol, let’s not even…) and Olivia wasn’t going to be with either. So she lies all the time and she backpedals when press calls her out on her shit by posting what she said.
In this case, the backlash was fierce and she found herself in the middle of a shit storm that was entirely her fault. It should tell you something that she’s desperately trying to take this back about Olitz though. We win, she loses. Again.
Its very telling that there are people that are more attached to who they want Kerry Washington to be, then who she actually is.
like they seriously couldnt care less about her education, intellect, like/dislikes, all her social justice initiatives, charitable work or causes she fights for, nor the fact that she’s an introvert who prefers privacy, all they want in life for her is to be the mistress to her white, married co-star, oh and for her to have given birth to his illegitimate unacknowledged baby.
The Olitz balcony scene of WIN already has over 17K views (me adding 1000 by myself) on YouTube in the first 48 hours and some change since it dropped. Now, if (probably when...) this new sensible trend with our heroes doesn’t continue into Season 5 and beyond, all I will say to The Creator and her enablers is this: JESUS DID NOT COME DOWN HERE AND GET NAILED TO THE WOOD FOR OUR SINS FOR Y’ALL TO BE THIS STUPID!
Shonda is hell-bent on putting on the show SHE wants starring Jake B even if it leads to cancellation bc she wants to show us who’s BOSS. Well, lady, you ain’t the boss if no one is watching not only Scandal but ANYTHING else in the future you bring to screen starting with the Catch. This battle is l.o.n.g.t.e.r.m. When all her future shows fail, then Olitzers win … And we intend to win.
Oh yeah, I’m definitely enjoying the Tony and Kerry and Olitz pretty. That doesn’t mean I’ll watch live. Two entirely different things.
I’m enjoying the Olitz and more importantly Tony and Kerry pretty as
much as everyone else, but I’m not so naive as to believe that because
there are promos and interviews advertising EXACTLY what we’ve been
requesting, then that’s going to last or it’s going to be the whole
Never forget this is a MAJOR win for us, we’ve been requesting this (Olitz STABLY together, Presidential divorce, we suggested specifically that Mellie get her own political story away from Fitz,now we’ll see what they do with OPA) for two seasons and when people finally listened and tuned out, IT HAPPENED, exactly as we always said.While I’m super glad that it’s clear that showrunner has been
handed her ass, it’s still ABC and it still doesn’t mean, even with
writers’ room changes (yeah that happened, too) that they’ll manage to
write an actually decent show.
And without an actually goodshow
all around, I am not watching live. Why would I; when I can ffwd through stupidity and just watch what’s relevant to me after? I won’t be watching live until I am certain that
things have drastically changed in exactly the direction we requested.
That woman NEVER had a plan for ANYTHING on ANY of her shows, and her career shows this over
and over again. Look at GA, lol. She went on for years saying she knew
exactly how GA was going to end, now it’s all “oh wait!”. LMAO. Please.
I’ll enjoy Olitz gifs and I’ll enjoy watching AFTER it has aired, until it’s clear that
there is a CONSISTENT and DRASTIC change. A show MUST entertain me from
minute 1 to the end every single week for me to watch live. Otherwise, I’ll watch later IF there’s anything good to see. A few promos or interviews certainly do NOT prove anything regarding an ENTIRE episode, let alone an entire season. We’ve been through this before.
Saw your post about needing to keep Olitz around, why would that be necessary now that the tide has turned with more Olakers?
Are there more Olakers? Because you coulda fooled me when Olitz still win every poll. People complain about Damon and Elena from The Vampire Diaries all day long, but their fans still outweigh all the other ships in TV Land.
You’re deluding yourself sweetie.
It’s actually lucky that Scott Foley wasn’t cast as Fitz, because Scandal would have been cancelled after season 1, and most Olakers know it.
