Ok, so am I the only one that can’t breathe right now?! Leave it to Shonda Rhimes to leave us all completely speechless. The Scandal season two finale was full of twists, revelations, breakups, and a shocking cliffhanger that literally made my jaw drop. I didn’t think it could get any better than finding out David Rosen was working with the mole, Bill Chambers, but man oh man was I wrong.

 scandal18f-8-webLets start out with Fitz & Olivia. I swear they can never catch a break! The episode starts off with hope that they will last as a couple. With the subject of defiance back in the air, Fitz wants Oliva to know that she will move into the white house with him, and she will be first lady. He tells her to make a plan to fix the American people. In other words, persuade them and make a plan for them to approve the idea of  Olivia one day becoming the first lady. He than show’s her his “superpower.” Let’s just say I had to fan myself after that scene, Woo! But these two lovers still don’t make it. Even after his speech to Mellie about how Olivia will be at his side, in the end Olivia chose being a gladiator over the man she loves. Granted Cyrus told her about how he killed Verna, and showed Fitz the sex tape. So who does Fitz run to for comfort? Mellie!

Cyrus had one hell of an episode last night. After trying to fix this mess of a presidency, he forgot about his health. After suffering a heart attack, you’d think he’d slow down. Oh no, he still found a way to screw things up for Fitz & Liv, and yet still try to keep the white house in tact.

David threw us all off last week, when we found out he was helping the mole. Well for half of the episode, we believed that he really did double cross the gladiators and gave the Cytron card to Billy. In the end David had Olivia’s back and actually gave Billy a fake card, recording his confession to the gladiators. This gets him a new job as the U.S Direct Attorney, and a star in my eyes. Thank god he didn’t double cross them, I really like him and hope he gets back together with Abbey.

Scandal-222-6-600x400So has Quinn officially lost it? After being Huck’s understudy for the last couple of weeks, she took a torture drill to Billy, and with the blood all over her face, you can still tell she really, really liked it. I can’t wait to see what is in store for her next season.

Finally poor Jake! After saving Olivia’s life from a fellow B613 member, Jake is sent away in the same hole Huck was put into. I guess when you don’t handle your order, your sent away forever. Sadly I was rooting for Jake, and only next season will tell what happens to him.

The biggest revel of the night, was at the end of the episode (hate how they do that to us). As Olivia gets up for her morning jog, she is bombarded by reporters asking her about her affair with Fitz. She is then taken away into a car where Rowan ( head of B613) is sitting across from her. Before the episode ends, she utters the three letter word dad, and Scandal is off until the fall. Yeah ROWAN IS HER DAD. Yes, her own dad tried to kill her. Let that sink in for a couple of minutes guys. So, what do you guys think is in store for next season? How did you like the finale? Leave comments below and lets start the conversation!

Grey’s Anatomy- Winter Finale Review + What’s Coming Up

Published

on

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?

OMG MOMENTS!

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.

Scandal- The Last Supper (04×08)

Published

on

rowan-olivia
 Gladiators, I can’t breathe. Last nights episode of Scandal has literally taken my breath away. So many twists and turns, Shonda clearly doesn’t want me to live after watching her shows! This week Papa Pope finally sees where Olivia’s loyalty lies and he doesn’t like it one bit. Spoiler: It’s with Jake and Fitz. They come together with Olivia to try and bring down command. Meanwhile, Mellie gets her groove back, Cyrus tries to bring down Liz, and Huck spends quality time with his son. It might sound all fine and dandy but trust me, it really wasn’t! 
Fitz, Jake, & Liv Play Nice: We pick up exactly where we left off last week, with the three of them in the bunker. Jake wants nothing to do with Fitz’s plan to get Rowan on trial for all the sins he committed, and I don’t blame him. I’m really glad Jake stuck to his guns this episode because Fitz was just beating him up 5 minutes ago and now he wants to play nice! Olivia tries to keep the peace and they all agree on keeping Jake in the room until further notice. They don’t want Rowan catching up on their plans (Although command basically sees and hears anything and everything in D.C). I wouldn’t be surprised if he had their phones bugged… or better yet, that damn bunker. Olivia and Fitz also share a tender moment in the hallway, as Fitz tells her to kiss him because he knows she wants to. These two always find a way to mess around. She does kiss him, but pulls away quickly, because she doesn’t know where her loyalties really lie. Is she with Jake? Is she with Fitz? Who knows. 
Scandal-season-4-episode-8
Mellie Got Her Groove Back: There’s an attack on the  VP leaving his car to be blown up in flames. Mellie rushes to his side to make sure he’s okay and realizes that she actually loves him. It quickly turns into hot steamy sex. Props to the First Lady for matching her red shirt with a red blouse! She confesses that after he chose the VP slot over her, she wanted to erase him. Then Jerry, her son died, and she wanted erase herself. But now, she’s ready to love again. Nothing can go wrong right?! Wrong. This is clearly Scandal we’re talking about. 
Liz Turns To Liv: Liz wants Olivia to look into her her phone, which she believes has been hacked. The investigation leads right to Cyrus and he has to come clean about his naughty, freaky nights with Michael. Liv sees that his side piece has been leaking information to Liz, but when she digs deeper she sees that he had tons of info on Cyrus, but only gave Liz a piece of info. When she confronts Michael he admits its because Cyrus is a good man and he actually has feelings for him. Although low key, he kind of creeps me out! Cyrus tells Liv that clients come a plenty, but friends are few. Being loyal to her “friend” she tells Liz that her phone was hacked by a virus. Liz believes it, but something tells me she’s just testing Olivia to see where her loyalty stands. (More on why she cares about Liv later.)
Huck Plays Dad: Huck has been really close to his son Javi lately. He’s always over and the two are growing fond of each other. I am growing fond of them as well because I love this story line and I’m glad Huck is finally happy. When Olivia orders Huck to spy on Liz to get dirt on her, Javi joins in on all the fun. Suddenly, Kubiak comes to Liz’s apartment and Huck orders Javi to leave and get some icecream so he doesn’t witness any hanky-panky. But then things get weird when Quinn suddenly arrives to the hideout. Turns out, Quinn is following Kubiak who is involved with Liz somehow. It could be that Liz was the one who hired him to follow Olivia and she’s the reason those two young girls and the dad are dad. Then to make things even worse, Andrew shows up. He and liz are sleeping together!! But that’s not it! Suddenly, Kubiak attacks the hideout. (How he knew he was being watched, I have no clue). He grabs Huck and begins choking him. Quinn tries saving her bff but there’s no bullets in the gun and Kubiak is immune to her stabs, so Huck has no choice but to kill Kubiak. All this happens as Javi is watching, and runs off before Huck can explain! I was just starting to like them together but now you know the mother is going to find out and get super upset and unleash hell. Poor Huck. Poor Javi.  I guess you can’t have a family and personal life when doing this kind of job.

The biggest OMG moment: The three musketeers, or shall I say the three blind mice decided that the only way to take Rowan down, is to ambush him. Olivia decides that she should be the shiny object to lure her father in. She tricks him by crying on the phone and telling him he was right all along about the choices she has been making. As she’s at the restaurant, SWAT teams are on standby to kill him, and Fitz and Jake watch from the White House. Suddenly, Rowan changes the conversation, telling Liv he’s sorry about the choices he had made as a father–for never being there, never being a good role model. Then he switches it up to how he’s disappointed in her. How he trusted her, how she should have trusted her family over THEM. Them being the two guys that would never love her like a father. He moves closer and assures her that the war has only just begun and she’s chose her side. The men outside are dead (as they mysteriously get shot) and the only reason he played nice before was because he loved her. Now she betrayed him and she was on the opposing team. He makes his exit, leaving before the ambulance can even arrive for the bodies. BOOM, Rowan Pope just mind-effed us all!  He’s clearly 50 steps ahead of everyone’s game plan. It’s a scary time to be Olivia. Really scary. 
Like I said gladiators, my mind is blown. Not to mention that all the B613 files are gone! How did he even get to them? Rowan Pope owned this episode! Next week is the winter finale and my question to you is, WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN? Doesn’t it seem like it was just premiere week? What the hell!?
