Consistency for Olivia Pope?

There are some glaring flaws coming up in the writing of Olivia lately and I don’t like it. When this show first started Olivia was a no-nonsense, no time for emotions, get the work done gladiator. We saw the Chinese wall start to break a little by the end of season one and into season two. But lately, I feel like they have exchanged all of Olivia’s power for weakness. its like she isn’t able to be emotional and flawed and human while still maintaining her power. Ex: Tonight. Olivia Pope would never fall for that “I got mugged” shit from Jake. He is a trained military official. She would never be that blind and stupid. Mere mortals wouldn’t make that mistake let alone Olivia. That was a weak move. I don’t know. I feel like we are losing some consistency with her character. What do you guys think? (Devin and I were just discussing this)

Please help me! I live in Istanbul and I want to watch ep. 11 live when Scandal comes back. I figured since yours is an international blog I can get help because many of you seem to watch it live.

Not a problem at all, love. The two I know of with live access are tvpc.com and justintv.com (Europeans & Australians use these primarily). There are also countless paying services. I am sure our international gladiators have myriad other suggestions. Sound off Gladiators!

Hope you are having a splendid evening.

Per EOnline’s latest spoiler news:

Jaqui: Scandalize me, you fools!
