just a memory

Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope on “Scandal”

Olivia is one of the world’s best fixers. She has created a President, solved the problems of dictators and queens, but she can’t fix her biggest problem, her life. She has survived kidnappers and lived to tell the tale. Her parents have proven to be her biggest enemies and have definitely left a trail of damage in their wake. Someone needs to teach her how to love but the problem is there is a man who is willing to show her, but she is too blind to see it.

cristina yang

Sandra Oh as Dr Cristina Yang on “Grey’s Anatomy”

Yes, Cristina is no longer on the show and we sure could have used her. (For her twisted sister when she lost her husband and and also for her man) But no character has made more of an impression then Yang. Frenemies from day one, the two surgeons have had each other’s back numerous times. Cristina stepped up when Meredith’s husband , Derek , was shot and operated on him while Gary Clark held a gun on her. She is truly a rock star cardio goddess.

At least , she still has her man , Casey.

miranda bailey

Chandra Wilson as Dr Miranda Bailey on “Grey’s Anatomy”

You have to hand it to Shonda Rhimes, she may create characters that you want to kill her for pairing and torturing, but her characters are definitely endearing and touch the viewer’s heart. This is the reason why two of her series, “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy” are represented by more than one character here. Miranda was first called “The Nazi” because she wanted to scare her interns. Bailey ended up as their mother and friend and has had all of her babies on her “table’ for various reasons. She gave birth while her ex was in surgery and a bomb was in the hospital. To save her life, she lied to a gunman and said she was a nurse. But she did it for her child, not for selfish reasons. Today, Bailey runs the show as the Chief.

bones

Emily Deschanel as Dr Temperance Bones Brennan Booth on “Bones”

It is the classic love story. Someone is paired up through fate to work with someone . They usually don’t agree or get along. In the course of time, love finally wins and the couple stops fighting their feelings and give in to their passion. Temperance lost her parents as a child and fought finding love. She fought the odds to become a famous anthropologist and become a leading expert in forensic anthropologist. This is when she met her soul mate , Seeley Booth while working on a case. Today the two continue to solve crimes , as well as raise their children together.

stay strong mellie

Bellamy Young as Senator Mellie Grant on “Scandal”

Some people would argue that this woman was not strong. For twenty some years, she was married to a man just for the sake of power. Her father made a deal with Big Jerry and a political super couple was born.Fitzgerald and Mellie . The union provided the couple with three children. But if you consider what Mellie had to endure , a father who left her mother for another family, a rape from her father in law that left her to question if her son was her husband’s or his brother. One thing endured in the back of her mind, one day she would be the President. Mellie is no longer in her ex husband, Fitz’s  shadow. She has made her mark with a historical fillibuster for women’s rights. Now she is on her way to the White House again. But this time she is doing it on her own.

erin lindsay sophia bush

DARBY STANCHFIELD

Darby Stanchfield as Abby Whelan on “Scandal”

Abby used to be a victim. She was brought on as a trophy wife to Charles “Chip” Putney for his political career. Charles had one little problem , he liked to beat his wife when angered. Abby had enough and drafted her friend , Olivia to take care of the man. Olivia took her in and made her one of her “gladiators”. Today thanks to her friend, Abby is the voice of the White House and can consider herself fortunate to call the President by his name, Fitz. She has come a long way.

analise keating

Viola Davis as Professor Analise Keating on “How to Get Away With Murder”

If anyone could be described as bad ass, it would have to be Analise. Fighting poverty and sexual abuse, she left her sad childhood behind to attend Harvard and become a law professor.
