Black Girls' Night Out: Olivia Pope

Better late than never.

Ladies of the Club, shit has hit the fan.

Granted, I'm jumping to the end on this one, but still...shit has hit the fan.  Capt. Jake Ballard, a.k.a. the New Guy, finally realizes why the President is so "interested" in Olivia Pope.

But like I said...that's at the end.

This is the ep where Liv and the New Guy finally get nekkid, and unlike with the Prez, their scene is actually watchable.  Of course, Liv finds out about New Guy's camera set up, and he claims to be protecting her, not stalking.  As we see on the camera, a masked assassin shows up her in apartment, ready to make the kill.

Still...I'm not entirely certain about the New Guy.  I mean, he did arrange the "suicide" of a seemingly innocent man.

In the meantime, James and Cyrus are (finally) back and I love these two more than ever. I find it hilarious to see the Prez giving Cyrus marital advice, but he seems to be going through one of his moments of growth.  He apologizes to Wifey, saying he's sorry if he turned her into a cold-blooded politician, but let's be real...Wifey was cold long before she met the Prez.

The Prez also appears to have stopped drinking, and is trying to be a decent human being.  This, of course, gives Shonda Rhimes an excuse to bring him back into the fold, so to speak, but I ain't havin' it.  Olitz needs to break up.  They needed to break up a season ago.

Huck and Quinn continue to be totally awesome; Quinn really is a natural, totally meant to be a killer spy.  I'm waiting to see if Huck starts training her to fight, or if we'll actually get to see her off someone.  I wonder if Shonda is going to make an issue of Quinn's morality or something as her training continues.

And I'm not stupid.  I can tell DA dude is being set up to become one of Liv's gladiators.  Already he's helping them investigate and is placing calls to "friends" with connections on their behalf...and I don't know how I feel about it.  Joshua Molina's a decent actor and all, but I think he takes shine away from Harrison, and I'm already over the fling he had with Abby the Red.  It happened, it's done...let's move on.

In short, it's time for him to go.

  1. I'm so with you about David aka DA dude, it was cute at first but...yeah I'm over you as well as Abby.
    I'm interested in Harrison and when is he going to get his story and shine cuz I love his character after Olivia plus who in the Sam's Hail is New Gy working for and why are they trying kill Olivia( I hope that she doesn't think that it's the Prez's doing cuz I would think that of Millie the FL before Fritz).
    What I'm not happy about is how ABC keep playin with people's emotions and making Scandal plus other hit shows go on ANOTHER hiatus, WTDoubleH, are y'all trying to start a mutiny or something, SMH so not cool

  2. I hate that Scandal is going on hiatus. It just keeps all of us in suspense. Im beginning to notice some other shows are doing the same thing. In another, I like the idea of being able to see some new episodes. I would hate seeing all of them and waiting until fall to see new ones.

    Anyways, I cannot wait until Scandal comes on. Im about to grit my teeth about the Captain and the Prez. BIGGGG mistake in him( the Prez) being affectionate towards Olivia in the hospital. Gosh! he( the Captain) seen you in semi-action ! I wonder how is this going to go down? I do agree, the captain seems better suited for Olivia. Until that incident where Olivia found out about the Captains intentions, she seemed like she was more at peace with him than the Prez.

    I remembered seeing an episode( presumably a future) one where Millie knows that her husband is going with Olivia. I wonder how she'll find out about the Prez's affair. Would the Captain tell, or would Millie put two and two together. Im also wondering how her relationship( or possibly " was" relationship) with the Captain will turn out.

  3. I'm in complete agreement that they're trying to make Fitz "ok" again. But I jus can't. He's married, even if it is to someone he doesn't like. If he wanted to be with Olivia he would be. End of story.

    I'm still not ok with Jake. There's too much we don't know about him still. And Liv still has a few more seasons of being a "tortured soul" so anyone she hooks up with is going to be wrong for her.

    I love Cyrus, even though he's always trying to have a hit put out on everyone all of the time.
