“If You Want Me, Earn Me”
Every week, Scandal gets better and better. This week the bomb went off, literally! With answers, twists, love triangles, and steamy sex scenes, Scandal totally delievered. With only one episode left until the season finale, I can only imagine what bomb will explode next week. But until then, lets discuss last nights episode.
The episode starts off with Jake following every move Oliva makes. With strict orders from The President himself, Jake isn’t going anywhere, and Oliva is pissed. Oliva being Oliva, she goes directly to the source and calls Fitz himself. Fitz being Fitz, he doesn’t budge, trying to prove to Oliva that he really does love her. So Jake continues to follow Liv around, even when she goes to work. I guess it’s just a normal day in Washington when you’re dating the president. While Fitz has Liv on watch, Millie is ready to explode on national television and tell the world that her husband, the President of The United States, had an affiar. The only person who is really concerned about this is Cyrus. He goes back and forth trying to convince Fitz that she is serious, and trying to convince Millie that she needs to rethink this. Honestly, I think Millie needs to realize that she is part of the problem. You turned your head when you openly knew your husband cheated on you, because you wanted to be first lady. Why are you so upset? Anyway, she is threatening the president and all he cares about is Liv.
Back at the office, The Gladiators and David, figure out that blue cap is really Charlie. Once Liv walks in, they break it down to her that one of her best friends could be the mole, and could be behind the person trying to attack her. Being Liv, she doesn’t buy it, and wants them to get more information before pinning it on Cy. As they are trying to find more information on Charlie, her phone rings and its Fitz. Trying to prove to her that he really is there for her, he tells her he will come into her office and prove his love in front of everyone. Being spectacle, she marches her way up to the white house. This was one of the most memorable scenes from the episode. Liv lets him have it, telling him that she is totally done, and isn’t the type of girl who comes running whenever he calls. With the famous line from the episode “If you want me, earn me,” she leaves the room.
With the FitzLivia melodrama unfolding, the gladiators are digging dirt on Charlie. Finding all sorts of information, that leads make to Cyrus. The episode takes it turn when Cyrus tells Millie he could get rid of Liv if she wanted him too. This makes the viewers think “maybe he is the mole?” I mean come on, he did almost have his own husband killed by Charlie. Speaking of his husband, he wants to become the next Anderson Cooper, and thanks Cy for letting him follow his broadcast dreams. But, the only thing on his mind is trying to fix the Millie situation. With trying to get rid of Liv on his mind, he still knows she is under watch. When he tries to go see her, he is denied by Jake. Already hating him, Cyrus is furious. But it’s Oliva who ordered Jake not to let him in. Drama! Well, I don’t really trust Cyrus since he was the one who did the fake call to get Jake off Liv watch, so that goes to show he really will do whatever it takes to stop Millie from spilling the beans.
Jake is still on Oliva duty, and since he knows that she and Fitz have a past and some type of future, he wants her to come clean and say it. Liv refuses yet plants a juicy kiss on him. This part really confused me. Does he like Jake or doesn’t she? Is she just using him to somehow get over Fitz. Either way, Jake really likes her and cares about her.
There isn’t a need for Jake anymore, since Fitz shows up at Liv’s apartment and lets him know he is off for the night. Startled, Liv opens the door, realizing that in 20 minutes, Millie will go on national television and let the world know about the affair. This was Fitz big gusture. He wanted to show Liv that he is finally choosing her. He wants her to know that he doesn’t choose the presidency, or his wife that he doesn’t love any more over Liv. They sit on the coach and wait those 20 minutes. As the minutes pass, it jumps from Liv’s apartment to Millie’s press confrence. In the end, Millie thought her hubby would choose her, but Liv won. So, Liv and Fitz are together (finally) and all is good. Right?
WRONG! Millie drops the bomb on national television. And guess who is the news anchor? Cy’s husband! Apparently she specifically chose him to do the interview. When Cyurs finds out, he literally sprints down the tunnels to try and stop the interview. Meanwhile Liv and Fitz are just making love everywhere with no care in the world. The gladiators see the interview and walk out the room, knowing that the mystery women Millie is talking about, is Liv. And Jake figures out that Charlie seen the sex tape of him and Oliva. SCANDAL SCANDAL SCANDAL! So my question to you gladiators, who is the mole? What is going to happen to Fitz’s presidency? Do you think Liv and Fitz will live happily ever after? What does Charlie want with Oliva? So many questions so few answers. Drop a comment below and get the convo started. Until next week!
Grey’s Anatomy- Winter Finale Review + What’s Coming Up
With all the craziness surrounding my family (My sister is getting married next week!!) I have finally been able to catch up with my shows. Don’t worry my Grey’s fanatics, I haven’t forgotten about you. Last weeks winter finale left us with cliffhangers that will keep us guessing until January. Will our favorite couple make it? How about the Japril baby? What do I sense a connection with Owen and Amelia?
Will They Make It: The question on everyones mind, will Mer & Der make it? Trust me I need to know because I haven’t watched for nearly 10 years to have them break up. The entire episode was the breaking point of the whole season. We watched them argue about Derricks decision to stay in Seattle, and Mer pushing him away. This week he reaches his breaking point. It also helped that The President Of The United States ( No, Not Fitz) sent out another aid to help persuade him to go to Washington. While he thinks about that, he and Mer continue to fight about everything Patients, family, hell even food. We watch Mer’s jealously tear up her relationship, which a couple of cute flashbacks to season one. She continues to say the carousel never stops spinning, a metaphor her mother used. Is this showing that Mer is becoming her mom? At the end Derrick throws it in her face that she was the reason why he stayed. She told him to leave. He calls the president and takes the offer. She then tells him to REALLY leave. As he walks away, we flash to Richard walking away from her mom. CAN THEY REALLY BE OVER? I mean Richard and Allice were.
Japril Baby: When it wasn’t about the star couple, it was about April’s baby who is dying. Stephanie took her ultra sound, yes very awkward, and detected a life-threatening birth defect. She asked Arizona and Herman’s advice. It came out positive for a rare birth defect that would leave the baby dead within weeks. To make matters worse, Jackson heard Stephanie talking about it. Shonda always has to kill someone, and now its the Japril baby!!
Arizona Spills The Beans: Herman is dying, which isn’t a surprise. But her behavior is. She is a ticking time bomb who is more preoccupied with having sex and eating ice cream than her patients. Arizona wants to help with her tumor, so she steals her labs from another hospital and asks Amelia for help. Amelia is so intrigued with the tumor that she thinks she has a plan to remove it. Can Herman be saved? Or will she kill Arizona for telling her secret?
1. I smell a romance between Owen and Amelia. They hinted it on the episode, he asking about her addictions, she asking if he was lonely. I’m still not over Christina leaving so I don’t know how I feel about that.
2. Callie and Arizona don’t look like they will be getting back together soon. After they repeat “WE ARE SEPARATED” dialogues these last episodes, it looks like they are actually not together and are actually happy.
3. Jo and Alex are surprisingly happy, but leave it to Shonda to mess that up soon.
And for all you fans out there the second part to season 11 should be a good one. Shonda Rhimes & Co. are launching a major trans storyline in 2015 focusing on a character named Travis,a thirty something man who will make the “believable transition” to a woman over time. Rumor has it the newbie will form a strong bond with a Grey Sloan staffer whose identity will remain unknown for now mostly because I’m not sure who it is. That’s right, there’s something I don’t know — what’s it to you?! Also the plot is in the nascent stages and, therefore, subject to change, so don’t quote me on any of this. Eh, screw it. Quote me.
