“I thought this was a really sweet chance for Beckett to take control over something she’s committed herself to, she’s defined herself by. She faces a deep fear, she said - I don’t wanna be…I don’t wanna be defined by this anymore -. And that’s a huge decision, and that’s a big kind of growing step for the character, and also a step for her that brings her closer to a new relationship with Castle”
(Stana Katic talking about “Kill shot” last scene)
No! I don’t accept this. You don’t quit! Olivia Pope DOESN’T quit.
Wow, she really just let her Dad take over her life? Those people that are saying she’s running out for herself, that this will be a period of growing for her, do you really believe that? Her father is everything that is wrong with her and she just turned over life to him.
"Standing in the sun" with her human vibrator. lol
What a joke.
I hope when she comes back, Abby turns a cold shoulder, but of course that won’t happen because this show doesn’t follow through with anything. None of the members of OPA even had anything to say about the whole “outing” mess.
Real talk this whole season was a waste because it started out with Olivia contemplating running away w/I telling anyone after being manipulated by her dad and it ended up with her actually running away w/o telling anyone after being manipulated by her dad. What’s the point here?
There wasn’t any. Lot of sound and fury that signified nothing. B613 is still fucking here. Olivia has literally not won one case since Season 2, not even taking down B613. James died for absolutely no reason and had about a half an episode of emotional impact, because the person who killed him and choked Olivia is a “good guy” according to David, They changed the backstory on Mellie to drag out that toxic marriage even longer. Going on four seasons and still no sign of a divorce. This fucking love triangle between Olivia, Fitz and Joke will be continuing indefinitely and they will still have to shoehorn Joke’s irrelevant ass into the storyline,
The only real thin that progressed is that Fitz won re-election. That’s it.
oh and the finale showed that only Fitz was human … they all didn’t even bat an eyelash seeing he lost his son, they were all happy for wining even Olivia … while when James died, Fitz stood with Cyrus and didn’t want to use his death for a possible votes winning .. how is Fitz the devil here ? because if Shonda wanted to proved, she failed miserably.
This was hypocritical of Olivia Pope. Last season she left Fitz for her gladitors but at the end of this season they r so much better off. So she can leave them. BS. I hope when Liv finds out she has been played by her dad and Jake. Fitz and OPA makes it hard for her to earn them both back.
Personally, I feel Bebe’s Kids are worse off now than they were at the end of last season.
I also hope that no one, particularly Fitz and Abby, make it easy for Olivia to just come back and act like shit is sweet between all if them. Then again, I fully expect Olivia to come back saying that she loves Joke now, despite the fact that he choked the dog shit out of her. 😑😑
I have a feeling Shonda is gonna wanna make OJOKE the wannabe IT couple for the show coming S4. I won’t be surprise if Tony/Fitz becomes a background character while F boy is out at the forefront. Wish them well with that ness.
Agree with you, boo.
I don’t believe Olitz will ever be written in a positive way by Shonda again. And even if she dumps Jake, he will be the victim and Olivia is just so unwilling to be happy. His abuse is ignored.
Thank god other good shows are out there to watch. Through with Joke.
Jamaicans will soon have to ‘fork’ out a little extra money every time they make a withdrawal at a bank. This was announced during a presentation by Minister of Finance and Planning Peter Phillips in Parliament yesterday. According to a report from the…
Following your interview on Oprah, your comments speaking on “the new black” has been weighing heavily on my mind. Maybe it’s the pure ignorance of your comments that has my mind rattling or maybe it’s because it’s the utter arrogance you have in thinking that you’ve somehow transcended your race. It wasn’t that long ago when I used to distance myself from other black people on the basis that I thought I was different. I thought I had somehow broke the mold because I listened to alternative music and knew what cosplay was. So ignorantly, I put myself into an imaginary sub category.
It wasn’t until this past summer, while watching the George Zimmerman trials and hearing all the hatred being flung in the direction of a dead child and his grieving family who were strangers to many, that the rose colored glasses I had been wearing broke.
It dawned on me that my blackness wasn’t something I could hide behind activities that had been deemed “white”. My skin will always be the first thing that will greet people at the door before my accolades or hobbies could even reach the door mat. So instead of being a part of the problem, I decided to be a part of the solution in destroying the idea that I was a special little snowflakes.
But that hasn’t resonated with you in your forty plus years of life.
You’ve decided to take it upon yourself and create an elite new group of black people that refer to themselves as “the new black”. Your money and success has blinded your consciousness and your empathy for your own race. You’ve decided that you were too good for us and went to extreme lengths to distance yourself.
Blackness isn’t a state mind. It isn’t something that you can market and sell to the multitudes. My skin color isn’t something I have to make work. People’s ignorance and blatant hatred is what I have to navigate through. You say that “the new black” people don’t blame other for their races, so let’s talk about how your comments are holding our race back. My dreams are boundless and doesn’t need erase my race in order to come into fruition.
A person comfortable in their “old” blackness
