Maya's return: damn, it feels good to be right. #Scandal .From jump (see poster analysis). You think transfer of power was gonna happen without a black woman? Lol 😆

While I wasn’t pushing the narrative that Maya was behind all this, I knew she had to come back into Liv’s life THIS season (“the balance of power is about to shift”).

DO NOT play yourself by thinking Maya did this to get Liv into the White House. It was to get her out. Maya is no patriot and knows the Republic is fucked up and refuses to aid in that system: “you think you’re family, but you’re nothing but the help” (Maya, #315). Haven’t we talked about how Mellie treats Liv that way? IF Mellie actually gets sworn in (dubious), do we really think that relationship will change, especially as Liv will be formally “serving at he pleasure of the president”? Girl, bye. Shonda been trying to show y'all the limitations of that place all along.

I still don’t trust Rowan and I don’t forgive him for so many fucked up things against Olivia. Nope.

Also right about Olivia being America (check S2 stuff). Rowan hating Fitz because Liv loves the very qualities her father doesn’t have (613). Quinn being groomed to take over OPA. About Marcus and Mellie. My baby Fitz and the whole Brandon Bill influence. Liv is gonna join forces with them to make an actual difference.

Ugh, let me stop talking. My head is spinning.

#Scandal Season 6 Poster and Pre-Season Thoughts

This may be a little tardy for the party, but I had to write it anyway.Let’s get into this S6 poster. Most of what grabs me gives me hope. I’m cautiously optimistic. Much like my Fitzgerald, I live on hope (shout out to my grandmother); it’s how I cope with living in this world. I’d like to talk about three aspects of the poster and my general desires for Olivia’s character this season: the hair, the colour white, and the tag line. I’ll also address how I think Fitz fits into all this. 

The Hair

As someone who prefers Liv’s hair with soft waves, her hair is getting out of control in the curl department. Girlfriend’s style-ometer seems firmly stuck between Shirley Temple and Shirley Chisolm.

#DisTewMuch

If the straight hair is going to bring back some sleekness, then praise Jehovah. From recent previews, it seems evident that Liv stays Temple curled up for at least half the season, or so. I don’t know if going back to straight hair is a ‘new year, new me’ attempt, as it seemed to be after Fitz canceled their relationship in season 2 (213). I don’t, necessarily, associate straight hair with anything good. But at this point I don’t know if I can be any more annoyed with Liv’s behaviour and style than I was in 5B. But I would never leave her at her lowest, and by god, 5B saw her in a low way.


The Colour White

Speaking of Liv’s style, boy was I happy to see her cloaked in white. The most white we’ve ever seen on the poster. It is intentionally visible in a way it has not been since the S3 poster. The difference between the two posters is, of course, Olivia’s posture.

At Last...Love On T.O.P: Scandal Season 5 Poster Commentary

N/B: This analysis concerns the various facets of Scandal’s lead character, Olivia Pope, including the Olitz relationship. It is not a rundown of my hopes and dreams for all the Scandal characters in S5. Such things are not meant to be conveyed by this poster. That’s reserved for the upcoming cast and character photos. 


The Image

When I first saw the Scandal S5 poster, I thought it was stunning and provocatively elegant—more so than any of the previous posters. The light bouncing off Olivia’s face gives her a glow that is, perhaps, more than makeup, and comes from within—joy. Her aesthetic is less Gladiator, more glamour: the diamond stud shining as brilliant as she is; the soft cascade of waves framing her face and shoulders; the shimmering strip of satin highlighting the bareness of her skin. Then there is the graceful arch of her neck, the openness of her mouth (and Fitz’s). The image is also intimate and inviting. Close. Dare I say, it is also erotic in the truest sense of the word (satisfaction), a keen interest of mine. All taken together, Olivia seems more relaxed and open—not just to Fitz, but to whatever is ahead of her.

Olivia’s amazing aesthetic aside, her attitude appears resolute. Whereas the S1 poster projected a woman who wanted us to believe she is in control, this woman on the S5 poster is assuredly at ease with who she is, who she wants to be—whether or not you sanction that being-ness. That ease is new and it pleases me immensely. The following words came to mind as I stared in rapture:
