I don’t think it was so much of I want to take a different direction than it was I want to take back my show from the fans. In S.2A of Scandal,when anyone would talk about Scandal it was T&K’s chemistry, Oltiz, Olivia Pope’s fashion and The Gladiators — not Shonda Rhimes’ show. The Queen was dethroned from “Shondaland” by her fictional characters Olivia Pope and Fitzgerald Grant. Queen Shonda decided to behead, sort of speak, the character of OP and to some degree, FG. You don’t change the core of OP to change the direction of the show. Shonda made a “mockery” of the character of Olivia Pope which absolutely makes no sense to us the fans. Redork, you mention why SR would not use Oltiz, as we said, they’re gold — right. Think about it. Shonda was mentioned last, or not at all, in relation to Scandal in S.2A, and then is was just the “Kerry and Tony” show. The Fall of Oltiz was on it’s way, IMO. Sorry. I had to vent. Thoughts?
