Foolish and Dangerous Games

header gladiator report

Before the regular episode, Madam Shonda had the ABC network preempt the anchor show of TGIT, “Grey’s Anatomy.” She gave gladiators one of their favorite episodes, “The Trail.” Why was this done? Shonda wanted to un do the damage that had ruined the show and lead her viewers back . The best moments of Olitz came from that episode. Fitz and Olivia meet , she tells him that he needs to screw his wife, and then the two realize that it isn’t just a cheap affair, but a budding romance. Between the beginning of Olitz, we see the dead body of Amanda Tanner as David Rosen and his assistant trying to solve the so called suicide, Quinn is involved with the reporter trying to find out about Amanda Tanner. , and by taking a trip back in time, we get to see the late Harrison Wright and the late James Novack. But the main focus is the start of this romance and how passionate these two people were.  Six seasons we have watched the POTUS and the Fixer have as many ups and downs as Ross and Rachel. And yes, when Fitz and Liv were on a break, Fitz slept with a lot of women.  “The Trail” was also the end of the first season when we learned about Quinn and also the first time that Fitz offered to give up the White House. Liv let her fears get the best of her and so she and Mellie hatched up the idea to say that the woman on the tape was her. Best line from that episode, “I know how to fake it with my wife, you taught me well.”

and you are ...

Fitz and Olivia meet for the first time. She confronts him about his dead marriage and how it needs to be resurrected. This relationship is the heart and soul of “Scandal” and the favorite of both Tony and Kerry.

Flash forward to tonight,  David finally gets some courtesy of his new girlfriend, “Samantha”. I wonder how Jeff Perry felt about his daughter rolling around with him. Zoe Perry has officially made the transition to evil villain. Taking evil cues from her mother in “Scream 2” and her father on “Scandal.” , she makes a delicious evil bitch who makes Poppa Pope look like a choir boy.  The big news is that Cyrus has been cleared of all charges. With everything that happened, Olivia wants Mellie to concede. Cyrus is now being told that he will become POTUS.  Abby takes him to a hotel room and he only asks one thing, to see his daughter. Michael doesn’t think he is worthy. Olivia goes to see him and he throws her out for not believing in him. Olivia knows to bring in the big guns and Fitz convinces him to take the Oval. But things are also beginning to unravel, while David celebrates his coitus with the mystery woman, Jake tells him to get out or he will get killed by his new lover. Mellie is not ready to give up yet either, Lizzie Bear tells her not to make the speech. Liv gets condolences because Fitz says that she did deserve this.

It is obvious that these two are still very much in love. He always wants his woman to win. He knew how important it was for Mellie to be President.

But one thing is for sure, you don’t mess around with Olivia Pope. Angela was given her walking papers tonight. First of all, she was asking her boyfriend about his ex girlfriend’s visits to the White House. First of all, you don’t question Fitz about Olivia and Angela didn’t know that. Angela wanted to start problems and it was obvious she was gunning for Olivia. That was just enough for Fitz to say Bye Bye Felicia. But Rowan informs Olivia that if Cyrus becomes President, they both are dead.

cyrus press conference

Despite feeling he is not worthy, Cyrus(Jeff Perry)  tells the press at the Lincoln Memorial that he will be sworn in as President , for the memory of Frankie Vargas. Fitz(Tony Goldwyn)  is at his side since he convinced him to clean up.

Mellie is terrified. She wants the Presidency but not at what it costs. After all, her ex won by fixing and deceit. Lizzie is behind her one hundred per cent. But then, Peus shows up and inform the Senator that she will win the White House. She says she doesn’t want it and then she is informed that it is too late. They also inform her that they will be running the show.  It is sad but the “Mystery Lady” picks up a golf club and murders Lizzie right before her eyes. That isn’t all, she informs Mellie that if she goes anywhere to tell about the murder,they will kill Teddy and Karen. When Olivia found out, she sent Jake to take care of Mellie. He is ready to take over as Veep.

mellie is terrified

 Hasn’t Mellie ( Bellamy Young )been through enough in pursuit of the White House?

There is no doubt who is the MVG for this episode is the soon to be ex President , Fitz. He has been taking fixer lessons from Livvy. In a short time, he convinces Cyrus to clean himself up, take care of the Bad Guys, and get the girl in the end. He also sends the FBI whore Angela packing when she announces her plans to have Olivia arrested for her part in the Vargas set up. Olivia  couldnt be more overjoyed because this will take care of Mellie not getting in the White House. Fitz tells her that he is afraid of losing her forever. She informs him he has. By reassigning Angela, he has Rowan arrested and Liv is livid. He has him arrested in his custody. Together , they will bring down Peus. But before that, Olivia and him do something

A Dangerous Game

olivia and the phoneOlivia has started to get late night calls again. One was so hot , we had to fan ourselves after hearing Tony Goldwyn describe what he would do for his Livvy.Now her and Fitz team up with Jake to bring down Poppa Pope

Hey gladiators , have you recovered yet from tonight’s episode. The hour was filled with surprises and revelations all around. Abby was shocked to see her former husband, Charles , in the White House running for Virginia senator. She was not pleased , so Olivia to the rescue. Olivia fronts a new exciting and female candidate and gives her a complete makeover. Who better than Ms Pope could do a makeover, if anyone knows about style and beauty , it’s her. Not every woman can capture two men’s hearts (and one of them be the married Leader of the Free World) In the continuing soap opera of Olivia and Fitz, viewers were treated to the sultry voice of one Fitz Grant 3 as he described what he would do to her. So much for no feelings, Liv was fanning herself along with us . Hey Tony! do you also charge 9.99 per minute? Mellie is back in full bitchiness. She is determined to be the First Lady to reckon with. No more china and dinner parties for her. Her husband doesn’t have time to deal with her , what with trying to win back his lady love, bring down Rowan , and still run the country.

Performances of the night go out to Brian Letscher and Darby Stanchfield. Darby has come a long way in her portrayal of Abby. Tonight , we got to see a little glimpse in Abby’s past. It is interesting to note that both Darby and the man who played her ex Charles (Michael Trucco) both were alums from the show “Castle” Trucco played Tom Demming who dated Kate Beckett and as everyone well knows that Darby played Meredith Castle the ex wife of Castle and the mother of Alexis Castle . Darby wowed us with her take back attitude she used on Charles and then shocked everyone as she kissed Leo . Does this mean a new romance for Abby/Gabby/ Red. Cyrus is beginning to put the pieces together concerning Michael . Tom was questioned by Olivia about Jerry’s death and she found out the truth. Tom waxed poetic  about how Olivia was Helen of Troy. He also told her about Fitz’s suicide attempt which shook her to the core.

The ride came to a screeching halt as Huck was brought face to face with his son , Javi . Rowan had better prepare for the fight of his life as he is now facing his daughter, the former head of b613, and the Commander and Chief. Welcome back Paul Adelstein as Leo and get ready for the return of Momma Pope. This is going to be good.

NEXT: Winter finale !

Jake Gets A Can of Whoop Ass – POTUS Style

joke and olitz

 It was definitely a night for POTUS fans!!! From the beginning of the show, until the end, we were strapped in and ready for a ride. There were some tear jerking moments , there was surprises , and of course there was Tony Goldwyn at his sexiest this season. This only goes to show that the reunion when POTUS and Olivia become one again is only a few episodes away.

Obviously the main focus tonight was Jake aka Scott Foley. His days are numbered in Washington. There is one person who is fighting for him and that is Olivia. She is still confused about her feelings for him. I guess you would have some kind of loyalty to a guy that you were screwing . But you aren’t going to get too far when you have pissed off the President of the United States. I don’t know what has made him madder , the fact that he thinks that Jake killed Jerry Jr or the fact that Jake has screwed the woman he loves. It’s probably both. Jake egged him on about how he was inside her while he punched him out. Note to TG fans: I was never more turned on in my life than when Fitz was going after Jake and punching him. Working out in the WH has paid off. A special added treat was the sing a long with Fitz and Jake. Both have prove their singing talents, Scott was in the Music Event on “Grey’s Anatomy” and Tony was in “Promises Promises ” on Broadway.

Fitz has also had it with the woman who was formerly the First Bitch aka Smelly Mellie. He gave her an ultimatum , to return to the old Mellie (sneaky, lying ambitious ) or get out of his face. Olivia tried and tried to find out what had happened to her sex toy and was finally told by her dear friend Cyrus what had happened. Bravo to Jeff Perry who I have dubbed his character my new hero, He finally remembered while on his booty calls that he had a wonderful loving husband names James. Quinn was such the bad ass tonight as the earns the title of ultimate gladiator as she dug for the truth with this week’s client. (Does anyone pay attention to OPA business anyway?} Guillermo made me feel sad when he went to see his little boy, Javi and his ex wife wouldn’t let him see him and called a shrink for him. Huck doesn’t like to be lied to , so he tried to strangle the doctor. Abby went on her merry bitch way, yelling at Rosen and Olivia. Tonight was a breakthrough in the Olivia / Abby friendship. Olivia admitted how scared she was about not knowing about Jake and the two hugged. Ahhhhhh.

Everyone just hit it out of the park tonight acting wise. It’s safe to say that Scandal is one of the best acted and best written shows on television. It kind of reminded me of the early days of Grey’s and the cast has to be commended for their tweeting. Even if they are hard at work making another great episode, they take the time to send those tweets to their fans. They try to tweet everyone whether they are celebrating a birthday or giving them a pat on the back for something their character has done.

There was a little bit of trouble this afternoon when an online entertainment site was calling the true gladiators “idiots” for rooting for our couple.They proceeded to give reasons why Fitz and Olivia were a bad match. We who can truly call ourselves gladiators , are not idiots. We are people who still believe in romance and that if two people are meant to be together they will find a way. We have sat by and watched out couple live through death, assassination attempts, election fixing, murder, threats from the First Lady, deceit from Cyrus, and so on and yet he can still get angry and she can still shed a tear when she thinks of him. So fellow “Idiots” , let’s keep hope alive and pray that Shonda will allow that man to be a Vermont soccer dad when the Presidency is just a memory.
