“Are We Gladiators, Or Are We Bitches?”
Apparently the only thing that kept Washington D.C running was Olivia Pope, or should we call her Julie? Scandal picks up where we left off last season, and shows us exactly what happened to the gang during her absence.
The Love Triangle Continues: The episode starts off with Olivia on the beach, enjoying a glass of wine, and getting her fair share of Jake loving. Let me just say, GOD DAMN! I wouldn’t mind being on that beach! It seems like all is good in her world, and she finally chose to stand in the sun. But with the news of Harrison’s death (we all know what really happened) Olivia is dragged back to the political world. Jake said it himself, as long as she is in D.C, she is on his time. He, being Fitz. Although Olivia doesn’t admit it, they share a tender moment at the end of the episode, clearly showing they are still drawn to each other. Olivia, girl, CHOOSE JAKE!
No More Pope & Associates: They all went there separate ways. Abby works for the White House, Huck, who changed his name to Randy, works for a tech company, and Quinn is still running around being Quinn. She is the one who sent Olivia the news about Harrison, and was tracking her down during her absence. I guess she needed to use her skills for something. We also find out that Abby is holding a grudge about Harrison’s death, and blames Olivia’s leave of absence. All Olivia wants to do is plan a funeral for her fallen friend, and hopes that they all can get on the same page for it. When it comes down to it, they all show up, and say goodbye to there friend, as gladiators.
Daddy Pope Got His Groove Back: Not only is he a good liar, he’s really good at keeping tabs on Olivia. When Liv returns to D.C, she pays a visit to her dad. When she questions him about Harrison’s death, he lies and says he had nothing to do with it. When Olivia is at the funeral, he shows up, as if he was spying on the group. Jake notices but doesn’t say anything. Mhm, what could Daddy Pope be working on now?
Mellie Is Grieving: One person who isn’t over the presidents son’s death, is Mellie. She is seen looking so not Mellie, wearing Ugg boots, running around in a robe, and not showering. It’s totally understandable due to the circumstances, but how weird was it to see her not dolled up? Her son died so she gets a pass.
The Scandal Of The Evening: The only thing that would make Olivia stay, is a Scandal. Although Jake was really ready to be back on the beach, and having beach sex (I DON’T BLAME HIM) Olivia decides to stay and help with the equal pay bill. All thanks to a senator who got a little frisky with a receptionist.
1. Lets’s just say, I need Jakes shirt to be off at ALL TIMES.
2. David is now the Attorney General. But we also find out that he and Abby broke up due to his B613 investigation. I was really rooting for them!
3. Fitz tried to kill himself after his son’s death. Although Mellie only brought it up in conversation, I can’t wait to see the flash back!
4. Cyrus has new hair! (Mid Life crisis after his husbands death maybe?)
5. Did anyone notice Ellen’s wife, Portia de Rossi in last nights episode? Hey Girl!
I was completely satisfied with the season premiere. It was exactly what I wanted. I knew something was going to bring back Liv to the real world. Part of me thought it would be a scandal with Fitz or Cyrus, but the fact that it was her fallen friend, and that he was the reason on why she was going to stay. My only hope is that she finds out the REAL reason, and all hell brakes loose with her dad! I mean it’s only right! Until next week gladiators.
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.
