***So, like, spoilers or whatever***
Um...can we talk? What was that last night? What was that?
First, let's start with the whole Fitz's-dad-raped-Mellie-thing (yeah, you read that shit correctly).
If so, then why were they all huggy-friendly-kissy in Season 2
Look, I know that Rhimes & Crew want to keep the story going, keep the momentum, well, momenting, but I think this is one of those subplots they're going to regret. And how does Bellamy Young feel about this ish?
Oh wait...somebody already asked her:
I found out at the table read -- publicly -- and it was harrowing, I won't lie. It's the chance of the lifetime to have material like this and to have such a rich episode for them to trust me with is humbling and terrifying, wonderful and a blessing. But that scene, to find out cold and reading it with everyone else at the table was like life -- not to say reading it at a table is going through it in real life by any measure -- but you numb out. Those events in life are so shocking was you numb out, those events in life are so shocking that you're not reading it with grace or aplomb; you're just getting through it. Barry is such a beautiful actor, and it was written so viciously -- [showrunner] Shonda [Rhimes] was clear in her vision of what she wanted it to be. It was a sobering table read.*shudder*
So there's that...and the fact the Prez's son may actually be his brother.
Moving onto Quinn. Why was nobody watching that child? Huck is going to live to regret shutting her out "for her own good" and Harrison is going to regret he didn't do more than just "ground" her. Quinn is now the property of B613 and this is most certainly not going to end well. And since when is Charlie back on good terms with Rowan? Did I miss something? I mean, last I checked, didn't Rowan put a hit out on Charlie? And the kissing...*shudder*. I hope Katie Lowes is drawing a big check for that!
And now...the big thing that's on everybody's lips: Mama Pope Lives.
That's right; y'all called it. And I can't really say much more than "Liv's mother is still alive", because the show promptly at that revelation (including the fact she's being held in a maximum security prison under some guy's name).
And by the way, in the flashbacks, Cyrus mentions his "wife" which, I felt, was akin to hearing blasphemy.
Oh, and can we talk about Sally Langston's husband being gay? And hitting on James in full view of Cyrus????
