Carter, Carter, Carter...Carter, Carter, Carter.
I don't know if Taraji took the week off during the filming of last night's ep or what...but there was damn near no Carter to be found in that ep, and they could have very easily written her in.
I watched this ep with my jaw on the floor, like, "Huh? Really? Then...what was the point of even casting her for this show?"
That being said, we have no choice but to move onto Olivia Pope.
Shonda Rhimes, boo-boo, if you're trying to dig yourself out of this mistress hole you've dragged us all into...you failed.
This episode tried too much. It tried to justify the entire show, and it tried to dig up and explain ancient history - the Prez's dead marriage, the beginning of the badly written affair, along with glimpses into the pasts of Olivia's team. It also tried to give us personal time with Quinn and her "buddy", two people whom I'm fairly certain fans don't really care about.
This was the kind of information we needed spread out over season 2, not crammed into one ep from season 1.
What did you think?
Is Olivia Pope the new Sally Hemings?
