I still want to know how that is considered unrealistic compared to the rest of the shit we’ve seen on Scandal.
I’m just rambling about something in my inbox that kinda pissed me off a lil bit blaming everything on Olivia. I had no intention of talking about Scandal today, feel free to ignore me. Before I start, it is all the writing. Tony & Kerry give everything they have to Fitz & Olivia & are constantly let down by lazy writers who don’t think or plan ahead, which is why TG/KW will probably never be rewarded with that golden bitch they so rightfully deserve for being fucking amazing at their jobs.
I love Fitz, I’m ride or die for him, but Fitz can say he wants to be with Liv until he’s blue in the face. He can plan futures, talk about their imaginary kids, make jam & build houses, but that really doesn’t mean shit when he is still married to Millicent Melody.
Olivia is so emotionally stunted that its unbearable. I get that her parents were fucked up, which left her fucked up, but even as a child she wasn’t able to say ILY to her own Mother who by all accounts was a good mom until she “died,” what is that about? At some point in life you have to say fuck everyone & do what is best for you.
Anyway I still don’t think she believes Fitz is going to divorce Mellie (hell neither do I) which has her developing “feelings” aka backup tendencies with Jacob Bastid. Before anyone says Liv told Fitz to stay married, Fitz should’ve told her ass how stupid she sounded & to sit the fuck down somewhere. He’s grown as fuck & can make his own decisions.
The writing & explanations used as to why he’s still married to this woman make no sense. His choice to get a divorce shouldn’t revolve around whether he is mad at Olivia at the time, he should get one because he doesn’t fucking love Mellie. Him forgetting he wanted a divorce from Mellie when he found out Liv’s part in Defiance was pure bs. He leaves Olivia, but stays married to the woman that also had a part in Defiance, which lead to traumatizing shower things happening.
Someone had the nerve to say, the reason why they won’t allow the divorce to happen is because Shonda doesn’t want people to hate Olivia. Don’t you mean “The Whore?” Bwwwaaaaaahhhhhhhaaaaa!! Like Shonda gives a shit about Olivia. That same excuse is also used for why Olivia won’t stand up for herself. “They don’t want to make Olivia Pope “ghetto.” Since when is someone standing up for themselves “ghetto?” I’d rather her be ratchet as fuck than a doormat. I am here for Baps Pope.
Writing a relationship between grown ass people, a 30 something yr old woman & a 50 something yr old man like you are writing for teenagers isn’t appealing (which is probably why you do it) its quite embarrassing.
…and the creator has the nerve to get offended when someone calls Scandal a guilty pleasure or a soap opera.
Well damn this is long as fuck!! I didn’t proof read this so I apologize for all my grammar mistakes that will make me cringe for life when I actually do go back & read this.
