I’m not up to recapping this tonight, I’d just like to watch it with you together with some random thoughts.
If you are feeling nostalgic, Here are some old conversations about Scandal and there was a really good recapper in there along the way.
I had to love how Quinn say’s “I’ve watched enough reality TV shows with cons for parents to know how this works out!” Oh hey there Teresa and Joe, and Phaedra and Apollo and so many more to come. Just like with this crew the government moves slowly but they never lose a case.
I never have cried more over a TV show than I did for this episode of Scandal.
If it is all really over, I need Cyrus to die a painful death to make up for this.
I love that it is starting with David Rosen standing up to Jake Ballard.
It looks like Cyrus is fucked. And he should be. I loved James.
Why do people drink with their enemies and let them pour the drink? This is not good. Rosen is already dying. Cyrus held a pillow over his head to finish him off. He can’t stomach watching what he has done.
Abby knows that Cyrus trapped him by telling him by telling him he was ready to cooperate.
You know somehow even though everyone is confessing left and right, Fitz and Olivia will end up in Vermont.
Pappa Pope decided he wanted credit for being the black man who ran the country for the past thirty years. Somehow that sent Jake to prison for the rest of his life, but not before Olivia’s apologies for “standing in the sun” with him made him feel even worse.
Olivia forces Cyrus to sign his resignation. She tells Mellie it is time for her to stand on her own two feet.
In the end, Shonda refused to give us the happily ever after in Vermont and instead chose to hint that Olivia was in the white house as either POTUS or first lady.
I was disappointed in the finale all the way around. This means I can stop trying to fit Station 19 into my Thursday nights. I’m over Shonda.
My final thoughts are familiar. I’m over Shonda. Let her move on to Netflix. I don’t have it, don’t want it and will probably still watch Grey’s but the new stuff on ABC and Neflix? I’m sorry. I’m just not interested. I’ll miss the hell out of the Scandal cast though. For eleventy billion seasons she set up a choice. Will she choose Fitz or Jake? Or at the very least will she find happiness? She punked out on answering the question because she doesn’t want to end with a woman needing a man? Seriosluy? What a fucking cop out. She literally had dueling love stories for YEARS and this is what we get? Fuck off Shonda. I’m one of those crazy people who thinks women don’t have to get married or have kids either. But if I write a years long romantic story, not knowing what happened to Olivia is a cop out.
What did you think?
