It’s A Different World From Where You Come From. . .

header gladiator report

Well gladiators,  believe it or not it’s been eight years and Fitz is in his last days as President. Him and Olivia couldn’t be closer. Olivia is getting ready to have it all. She is running the Oval, enjoying the best sex she has had in a while, and planning her future. Peus has been stopped and all is right with the world. Olitz is occupying the Residence for the last week of his Presidency.

making love in the White House

 Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Liv (Kerry Washington) are enjoying his last days in the White House

One of the biggest tasks that an outgoing President has before he leaves the White House is leaving a legacy. All of the gladiators are looking toward the future as well. Fitz sits down and tries to make the country see the good parts of his Presidency. Another task that has to be taken care of before the new President is sworn in , is Presidential pardons. Fitz is being handed a controversial case courtesy of one of the gladiators, Quinn. She becomes Olivia Pope and argues with the POTUS himself. But this development , has two positive outcomes. First of all, Fitz decides that he want to champion all the cases of innocent people going to jail. (Shades of the Innocence Project and his own real life cause) The second thing is that Olivia knows that she can leave OPA in good hands and she gives OPA over to Quinn. Quite a long way  from that naive girl who came into OPA and was in awe of Olivia Pope. All of the gladiators have come quite a long way since Harrison asked Quinn if she wanted to be a gladiator in a suit. Mellie is no longer in her hubby’s shadow , she is her own woman and Olivia is just about to get it all. Rowan couldn’t be happier that his little girl has finally got the Oval. He also hates to admit it , Olivia is happy with Fitz. Rowan now sees what kind of man Fitz really is, and knows he will take care of his little girl.

OPA goes on

The gladiators work without their boss. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) Charlie (George Newbern) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) are trying to find a convict for Fitz to pardon.

David has questions, and Rowan has the answers. Who is the woman who he was falling for and why did she come into his life? He shows up at Abby’s with a box. “Be careful what you wish for ” warns David. In the box is the head of the mystery woman. Jake comes over and gathers DNA and now everyone finds out that Peus was not pulling the strings. Rowan thinks he is leaving … but he is detained by Secret Service and Olivia. They know who was behind it all… Maya.

olivia and quinn

Olivia has confidence that Quinn will be able to stand against her as the White House. Both women have more than their careers as part of their future.

quinn the bride

olivia is happy now

MVG? Some would say it was Quinn and others would say it was the Mother Fixer herself, Olivia. Both are stronger women and Olivia has finally decided to trust Fitz and communicate with him. Even though we never saw it, let’s hope that Liv got the help she needed and her and Fitz got a chance to talk. Olivia has helped so many people realize their potential. She helped Fitz be the man he was supposed to be and taught him what love was. She has rescued her gladiators and Jake from the horror that was their lives. She made Charlie the man that Quinn will marry and she tamed the bitch that was Mellie. Olivia let love rule her mind when it came to Defiance. Defiance was what destroyed so many lives , but no one worse than Quinn. Lindsay was set to take the fall and Liv couldn’t have that. So Quinn was born. Since Olivia was the one who brought her into OPA, it is only fair that she is the one to take over for her. Is it all over? No as President Grant said in his interview with Noah Baker. “We’re just getting started.”

Next week… “Scandal” ends its sixth season with its first ever two hour season finale . “Tick Tock” and “Transfer of Power” . Both are directed by Tony Goldwyn. Is Mellie in danger before her swearing in?

You Are Cordially Invited to the Wedding of Olivia Carolyn Pope and Fitzgerald Thomas Grant 3… A Wedding to Remember

i take the olivia

 It may have been two weeks ago, but it was the episode that took “Scandal” back to the water cooler . The premise was simple, what if Olivia would have never said “Yes” to Defiance.? It was interesting to see what would have happened to our fave gladiators if Fitz would have lost.  There was the interesting pairing of Mellie and Cyrus and the return of fan favorite , Dan Bucatinsky as James. But the one point that really made people talk and also the ratings rise was the wedding. Since there was no White House for Fitz, he took a chance and flew cross country and proposed to Olivia after he announced that him and Mellie were done. Relive those magic moments of Olitz and the wedding that should have been….

olivia and the gown

 Of course, if Olivia would have married her handsome Governor of California. She had to have the grandest gown of all. Lyn Paolo and Shonda had imput in choosing the perfect gown. The dress was from Anne Barge and was the Berkeley and it cost about $4600.  This isn’t the first time that Kerry wore white for Fitz. In season five, Fitz was about to be impeached and Liv was going to be called to testify. Brilliant Cyrus came up with the brilliant idea that Fitz would be safe if Liv and him got married.

KERRY WASHINGTON

Here is Liv looking like the First Lady she was getting ready to be . She had told Fitz that she wasn’t going to wear the white gown, no vows, or flowers. Unfortunately, the wedding never happened.

abby as maid of honor

Here is Abby  (Darby Stanchfield) or Liv’s BFF as her maid of honor.

Is David Rosen(Joshua Malina) interested in the ceremony  or in the maid of honor?

 Dan Bucatinsky took a special break from “24 Legacy” to return for the 100th episode. In the AU episode, James never gets to marry Cyrus. Instead Cyrus marries the former Mrs Grant. Cyrus stays in the closet but still pines for the reporter.

But even in this AU… Rowan (Joe Morton) can’t stand the fact his extraordinary daughter is marrying this man.

This church has been used  in a lot of shows. I love the aisle view and all the flowers that were used.

Why does this man always look hot ? It is hard to believe in just a few weeks he will be 57 years old.

What The Huck?

header gladiator report

Shonda has been changing the game ever since the show returned this year. Using the same plot devices as “HTGWM”, she has been telling the story of the election and Vargas’s assassination in each character’s point of view. We have been seeing characters that usually aren’t the most cuddly of characters. MIA this week are Mellie , Cyrus, and of course, Fitz. (Did this MIA for Mr Goldwyn have anything to do with his campaigning for Hillary?) This week the episode is seen through the eyes of Huck . Actually it is good to see lesser featured actors in these new episodes. It’s almost like seeing a whole new “Scandal”.

Olivia can’t trust her father , she never could. But hey look at all the crap he’s done. Killing Harrison , keeping Maya prisoner and making Liv think she’s dead, and killing Jerry Jr. with a deadly virus. That’s just a grocery list of his activities. Well this time he’s crossed the line and after trying to get Fitz and Jake to kill him and failed. She will do it herself and Huck will do it. Holding a gun on Rowan, Huck is told that if he kills him it won’t do any good, he is being manipulated and the thugs will not at all think twice about killing Olivia. He also tells Huck that there is a traitor among them. He immediately thinks its Quinn and the two draw guns. Now the team must bond to find the mole. (Another nod to history, the “Mole” was Billy Chambers who was going to bring down the Grant administration with Amanda Tanner’s help. Season One)  Olivia knows there is one person that she can’t trust and she figures she will be free when he is dead. He was the one who was pushing her for the Oval and it wasn’t her idea at all. Once again , she is being manipulated and she is tired of his antics.

olivia and huck talk

Olivia (Kerry Washington) tells Huck (Guillermo Diaz) she wants him to kill Rowan

But who is the mole? Huck realizes that someone may be playing him and so he has David take him to prison and he meets up with Becky. (You remember her? she tricked Huck into being framed for shooting Fitz.) Becky said that he had someone who was playing him right now. She also pointed out that he had too big of  a soft spot and that was his weakness. Meg ups the game by asking Huck to get her a private meeting with Olivia. He thinks that she is the mole and threatens her with drugs to tell the truth. Rowan placed a tracking device in Sandra’s corpse and Olivia sees the woman murdered. Huck tried to give Rowan the benefit of the doubt that people can change. Once again, Huck is made the patsy for the love of a woman. Meg is reunited with her friend, the late Jennifer and everyone has a happy ending. Once again with his vulnerability attacked and a vicious cycle between good and evil, the MVG is Huck. But wait….a new wrinkle in the ointment. Meg shoots Jennifer and then Huck.

Huck has to learn to trust the right people ..including Meg (Phoebe Neidhardt)

The Shadow Orgainization arranged for this to happen and you will never guess who is behind it….

its abby the bitch

She isn’t a gladiator anymore.. Abby (Darby Stanchfield) makes a deal with the mysterious lady (Zoe Perry)

Abby is now the most ambitious and evil . She is making deals with the devil and it appears that she had Huck shot. But…. has Abby reached the top of ambition? Will Huck survive the bullets? Can David save her from herself? If Olivia is in danger, who will be her knight in shining armor?

Tonight’s OMG episode was directed by none other than Peeping Tom…Tom Verica

Happy Birthday to Olivia’s Most Loyal Gladiator – Guillermo Diaz

guillermo diaz

Today in 1975, a gladiator was born. That’s right, this is the day that Guillermo Diaz other wise known as Diego Munoz or Huck on the ABC hit “Scandal” . Huck has certainly had an interesting go round on the show. Starting out as a killer, who we have found out had a wife and kid. We have seen him try to find his identity and tame the beast as a member of B613. We have even seen him as the man who was arrested for trying to kill the President . (Totally a set up). We have even seen him as a lover. But the real Guillermo is proud of his gay relationship and especially of the tattoo of his true passion.Guillermo loves Madonna and has seen most of her concerts.

huck s tattoo

Here is Guillermo and his tattoo of Madonna. Guillermo has actually met the singer when she was on Ellen. He is such a fan that the only two tours of hers that he didn’t get to see was  “The Virgin Tour” and “Who’s That Girl.”  (I actually saw the “Who’s That Girl” one) Guillermo is from the Big Apple like several of his fellow “Scandal” stars. Like Kerry Washington

guy and kerry washington

Guillermo was born to Cuban parents and as a result has played many hoods and gangsters. He was a regular on the series “Weeds” and was also on “The Sopranos” “Law and Order” and in the sixth season of “Without a Trace” . which featured another “Scandal ‘ star . Tony Goldwyn. He also had a role on “Law and Order SVU” in the same season as Joshua Malina.

Guillermo also had a role in the landmark gay film, “Stonewall” He is proud of his relationships . His boyfriend’s name is  Mike Webb.

guy and his guy mike

His best friend in the world is none other than his co star Katie Lowes. It’s Huckleberry Quinn.Huck hasn’t had the most stable love life, but he has always had Quinn and Guillermo has Katie

guillermo and katie

Other than “Weeds ” and “Scandal” , Guillermo will always be remembered for his role as “Scar Face ” in “Half Baked”  Who couldn’t forget this scene?

half baked

But Guillermo has cemented his place in tv history as former Marine and current gladiator, Huck.  When Olivia needs it handled, she can always count on Huck. Here he is with Olivia and his fellow gladiators. Whether its saving some millionaires ass or helping out the POTUS, the gladiators can be counted on. Here he is with Kerry Washington, Columbus Short, Darby Stanchfield, and Katie Lowes

huck and the gladiators

 Here is Guillermo with the award winning cast of “Scandal” . including  Jeff Perry, Joshua Malina, Darby Stanchfield, Portia di Rossi, Tony, Kerry, Bellamy Young, Scott Foley, OPAs newest gladiator, Cornelius Walker Jr. , and Katie. Guillermo has been nominated for Image Awards and Glaad Awards.

It’s Going to Be a Bumpy Ride

header gladiator report

Just like in real life, the campaign rages on. Tonight was mostly focused on the Republican candidates . Friends became enemies.. Gal pals Olivia and Abby are no longer on the same team. Olivia and the gladiators are working for Mellie and Abby is on the WH team for Susan Ross.

may the best woman win

 The Republican candidates are now vying for a hefty prize . They are competing for the endorsement of the governor of Florida which means the candidate will win the state. It was a real treat tonight for me when Madam Governor was played by none other than that “Designing Woman” Annie Potts. It was a reunion of sorts for Annie on the “Scandal” set. Annie had appeared with Mr President on her show way back in the eighties in a classic episode called “Killing All the Right People” Tony was a young man who contracted aids and asked the gals if they would design his funeral for him.

tony on designing w

Annie would definitely not recognize this young man when she did “Scandal” . He obviously aged quite well…

Fitz swag

 The candidates are all on their way to Florida, well one is stalled. The “Mellie” team is waiting to take off, but can’t . No other planes can be in the air before Air Force One. Olivia hears that the plane hasn’t left because of mechanical problems. She knows better than that and blames Abby. Olivia plays her own card and lets the media know that there is nothing wrong with Air Force One. Abby wants to make Mellie late because she knows the governor wants to favor her. Nothing ticks her off more than tardiness. Quinn can’t understand why Liv is battling with her friend. Mellie is clued in by Marcus to make her move and she does that by waving into the Presidential jet.  Both her and Fitz get off the planes , which is a field day for the media as the two exes chat on the runway. But thank God, they can’t hear Fitz telling Mellie about Liv killing Andrew. The two share a special moment as they both voice their concern about Olivia’s personality. Fitz tells her to make sure she eats and gets enough sleep. He knows how she is when she is in her work mode. So it looks like as we predicted. Fitz isn’t over her and probably never will be…

the exes

Air Force One takes off with the Chief Executive ‘s orders. Abby calls him on the carpet and says that she runs him. Fitz argues with her, and then because of her tactics, Mellie is almost not admitted to the dinner. Olivia uses her own magic as she gets Fitz to admit Mellie’s lateness is his own fault. The governor makes room for Mellie. Abby steams more. Hollis uses his charm , causing Lizzie to call it a hillbilly hoedown.David has made a deal for Susan if he seizes an investigation. Susan starts out quiet but then she makes her case to the governor. Following the dinner, David says he is proud of Susan, yet he is still sleeping on the floor. But Susan is trying and she reaches down to take his hand. He promises that he will never hurt her again. The next day, Susan is told that she got the governor’s endorsement . Unfortunately, neither lady comes out the victor. Hollis wins the state primary and Lizzie finds out that David made a deal with the governor.

huck comforts liv

Huck shows his tender side as he shows his own concern for Olivia.He tells her that he fears what is happened to her since Andrew’s death and how she needs to grieve.  He warns her that she has gone down the rabbit hole and he tells her he understands. Olivia strikes back by saying that Andrew had it coming and she felt powerful and free when she killed him. She could actually sleep for the first time in a year. Olivia also admits that her father would kill Jake if she didn’t leave him alone. Olivia breaks down into Huck’s arms.

cyrus and michael

The shit hits the fan with Cyrus. Vargas’s brother wants Michael to get some dirt on Cyrus. Cyrus admits to him that he has been sleeping with Tom and it breaks Michael’s heart. A war starts when Michael starts calling Ella his child. Cyrus is livid and tells him in no uncertain terms that Ella is his late husband ‘s child, not his!! Later, he returns to find Michael is gone and he has taken Ella with him.

the grants post divorce

There is no question who this week’s MVG is and once again as POTUS gets ready to leave the White House, he is cleaning up so many messes. On one hand he wants to help his VP get the nomination. But this man has a lot of baggage and he also has a woman he doesn’t want to let go of. In the midst of the gladiator war between Abby and Olivia, he is stuck between support Susan and loyalties between his wife and the love of his life. He knows that Olivia is ill and he has been willing to be there for her. He also has been a friend to Abby when she broke down in the Oval Office. He told her he had gone down the same road and that she needed to find a line to pull her back up from the darkness. Abby had been the go between for Fitz in the past for Olivia. Can Fitzgerald  Grant head toward redemption as well as make the one dream that he still holds come true? Hang on gladiators we are headed toward the season finale guaranteed to deliver a cliffhanger to thrill…OMG!!!

Runnin that Mutha… An Old Dog Returns!!!

header gladiator report

Gladiators , the ride is getting steeper now. Candidates are making their way into the circus and one President just wants the ride to end. The race for the Oval has begun. This week our “gladiators’ participated in Paley fest and delighted the assembled crowd with witty comments and lots of selfies. Our “President’ stayed afterwards and signed fans autographs so now a lot of lucky fans have a souvenir to treasure. Tony probably watched eagerly as his candidate , Hillary Clinton, won a major block of delegates on Tuesday.

It was a different kind of dinner at Papa Pope’s as Olivia went out of her way to be a charming hostess to Jake and his fiance. But not everything is as it seems. Olivia is buying into a whole lot of crazy. She had her people installing cameras so she could watch Jake. Hmm does this seem familiar?  Huck and Marcus are bonding over soccer when Huck discovers a familiar face. The guy that is hugging Kim is a guy that Huck was contracted to kill and he thinks that he is coming for revenge. Huck puts on a clever disguise and becomes “Harold”  Harold picks Sean up and it looks like Sean is getting the “Huck” treatment after a discussion with “Charlie”.

As the campaign trains pull out of the station, Vargas is now officially on board. Susan is also officially in the race. Mellie has all but declared her candidacy, but not yet. Since the candidates will need money, Hollis Doyle returns to make his bids for the Oval. Susan is willing to listen , but Fitz is not having it. It is still fresh in his mind what Hollis did to him and his pride. Not to mention all the killing that went on because of Defiance. He throws him out of the Oval and tells Susan to be true to herself again. Hollis knows that Mellie needs cash and endorsements and she will listen to him. The meeting is a success and Mellie looks forward to working with the snake. There is only one problem, Hollis Doyle takes her ideas and slogans and then declares himself a candidate a la Donald Trump.

But a storm is brewing in the West Wing, Abby knows that Cyrus has gotten in bed with Vargas and is planning to run his campaign just like he did Fitz’s  eight years ago. Abby has caught him in his lies and then she threatens to go to Fitz with the information. She tells Olivia that she wants the power and can taste it. Olivia warns her how the power can change people and not for the better. She also has a run in with Quinn about coffee, which is the last thing on her mind. Abby tells Fitz that Cyrus is working for Vargas and once again he knows he can’t trust him. Abby reminds him of the optics of firing a COS this late in the game , especially when he had already fired him once. Then he would have to search for another one . Abby tells him that she is up for the job . Fitz smiles and then tells Abby to take care of it. And in one fatal swoop, the Press Secretary fires the Chief of Staff.

Jake comes to Olivia and says he knows she has been watching him. Am I the only person who it bothers that in Season 2 , the very same thing was going on with Jake? I remember fondly when he would watch tapes of himself making love to her. I also remember him using those same tapes to hurt his friend. Olivia breaks down and admits she misses him. She apologizes to him as well. Hold the phone! she is apologizing to a man who almost choked her to death and abused her. Yet she has not made step one toward the man who she was willing to marry and then ended up killing his baby. Wake up Olivia before it is too late!!Jake also made me mad when he made it look like Fitz was the root of all evil and he was so innocent. Fitz is still being shown as weak and entitled. Sad to say , he needs some Presidential balls.

MVG of the episode is a tie between Quinn aka Katie Lowes and Abby aka Darby Stanchfield. . The reason for the lady gladiators to share the honor is because they both showed kahunas and spoke their mind. Quinn called Olivia out and asked her how she could call her people family. Ever since the White House, she has no connection to them. All she does is stalk Jake and obsess about him. When she was asked by Harrison to be a gladiator , this isn’t what she signed up for. When you heard Quinn talking about Harrison and when OIivia helped with Stephen’s proposal , you could hear the fans agreeing with her and telling this to Shonda. This was when the show was at its peak. Olivia finally addressed the kidnapping and finally viewers were given a look inside her head. No there is still no mention of the abortion or Fitz’s suicide attempt, but this is a start. I will say it again. Get thee to a shrink. It did wonders for Meredith Grey, it will help you too.

Abby takes the MVG title just for her guts. She has been living in Liv’s shadow since she took over Fitz 2.0. Olivia wanted to have nothing to do with Fitz after the whole, “I am talking to my wife” debacle. So now Abby is a fixture in the Grant WH. and has earned her spot at the table. Even when Abby threw her former boss under the bus, she showed that she had been taught well and it was a page right from her playbook. Cyrus has also taught her well, but she also realized that he is basically Satan. This was coming…The only time in his life that Cyrus had any conscience is when James was still alive.

Looks like Olivia’s gut is returning. As she listens to Vanessa gush about how her and Jake ran into each other and the crack in her phone. Olivia begins to think. This seems familiar to her because it is where she first met Jake. Something is definitely rotten in the state of DC. She tells Quinn to resume watching Jake. Him and Rowan are up to something.

bitch baby

Yes? I need you to listen to me very carefully because I’m going to speak to you right now the way the Cyrus Beene I know would speak to you.
When did you decide to let them ruin you? Excuse me? So your life’s unfair.
So what? That’s how it is.
So, they’re mean-girling you in the press, they’re calling you names that hurt your little soft spots deep inside? Well, so what? That’s how it is.
So you lost someone you loved.
You lost the one person who felt like family.
Well, guess what grow the hell up because that is how it is! The Cyrus Beene I know doesn’t hide in his half-empty closet and wet his pants like a little bitch baby.
The Cyrus I know is a patriot.
He bites the bullet, and he does what it takes to serve the Republic at all costs.
So, I want to know, right now, in this moment, who you are.
Because the pathetic shell of a person I’m looking at right now doesn’t deserve to stand on the presidential seal in the oval office, let alone tell the president what to do.
– Who are you, Cy? – Liv.
Who are you, Cy?! – Liv! – Who are you, Cy? I am one of the most powerful men in the world.
Who are you!? I am one of the most powerful men in the world.
Oh, yeah? So, you’re not a bitch baby? I run this country.
I’m nobody’s bitch baby.
I don’t know.
You still sound like a little bitch baby to me.
I am not a little bitch baby! Then show me! Prove it to me right now! Show me who you are, Cyrus Beene!
