“This Is Not A Romance Novel; Life is not A Romance Novel”
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.
Lets 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.
So 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
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.
