@jessicadarling:  Me!!! I love Scandal. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode. Diddo on Liv and Fitz, cannot stand them together! I’m starting to really not like Cyrus. I agree with you on Mellie, she use to bother me but now I understand her. I think Fitz really treats her like garbage.

@jessicadarling:  I agree about Olivia & Fitz. I think I should stop watching. The behavior is getting more and more disturbing. 

I still haven’t figured Mellie out. She seems to have a hidden agenda.  I don’t know, she endured a lot for him too. I wonder why she kept his father’s secret.

@jessicadarling:  I agree — can’t stand Fitz! I did the same thing, watched all the episodes they had on Netflix over a weekend & now I’m completely addicted to it. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode!

@jessicadarling:  I don’t root for Olitz (as they are known) but I do have to say that I love the chemistry that the actors have together. I like Liv/Jake. Mellie is a boss bitch and I love it 🙂

@jessicadarling:  omg thank you – i literally yell at the screen ‘shut up, you’re such a loser!’ ‘just get back to the spying!’

i think he’s SO ANNOYING and they are SO BRUTAL together. she’s this bad ass fixer and the second he calls she’s this dumb little baby pouting and slurping wine out of wineglasses that look like fishbowls – it’s gettng embarrassing to watch.

@jessicadarling:  I LOVE scandal! I’m like you and got into it late. My FI and I recently watched seasons 1 and 2 in like two weeks and we’re now catching up on season three. I hate Fitz, ugh he is manipulative and toys with people’s feelings. I actually really liked Olivia and Edison together (I also liked the fact that he proposed to her with my engagement ring – I rewinded like three times to make sure lol), but I understand why she couldn’t be with him. I hope she finds someone else and gets Fitz out of the picture romantically.

@jessicadarling:  ME ME ME!

 

I actually like Liv and Fitz, they are HOT together.  Jake is kinda pathetic and whiney IMO.  And Liv is pathetic with her father, I wish that weren’t even a part of the story.

 

My favorite character by far is Cyrus, his quotes about the VP crack me up!!  Although I think he’s a little mean to his husband… but hey, so am I!

 

Also, I die at 99% of the outfits Olivia wears.  Her first fail was this IMO:

@mchitt329:  YES – i actually texted my friend ‘wtf is olivia wearing?’ it was like something judy jetson would have worn to prom. so ugly. 

i also kind of hate the way that she thinks she owns the white house – and how everyone kind of bows to her there, like the secret service guys etc. i’m DYING for someone to put her in her place there for once, so maybe it will click that ‘duh, i’m the president’s lame affair’ and she will get back to being smart and powerful and legit!

when they had sex in the coatroom or whatever last time, i was honestly like, ‘you must be joking. you have the self worth of a tick’.

@peonyinlove:  I think she acts that way in the white house because a) she’s an intimidating woman and b) secret service knows not to fuck with POTUS’s other woman!

 

In my OP I forgot to mention that even though I like Liv and Fitz I REALLY love Mellie’s character.  Very complex, very REAL.

What did everyone think about the rape scene tho?  This pretty much sums up my feelings: http://www.thefrisky.com/2013-11-15/the-soapbox-scandal-lazily-relies-on-a-rape-scene-to-make-a-hated-character-more-sympathetic/

@jessicadarling:  i also think fitz can be really like molesty. there was one instance where they were in his office and she was pulling away from him saying ‘no, no no’ and he held her there and made out with her etc. and i actually thought, ‘um…she said no and he’s essentially forcing himself on her – are they really trying to make this hot?’ maybe it’s my recent crim classes in sexual crimes making me extra vigilant (i’m in law school) but that’s sexual assault!
