As we waited for Kerry Washington to drop her baby bump (congrats btw), I’ve been scurrying the Internet for something fun to watch or read for almost a year. Remembering the prep that happened around 8 o’clock on a Thursday night just to shamelessly tune into ABC to watch a new episode of Scandal.
My pre-game usually lasted for about two hours, via Twitter, and would include the red dessert wine of my choice that would be housed in a big wine glass inspired by Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope. And then you and I would tweet our hearts out about last week’s episode and of course, predict what the outcome of this week’s episode would be.
Now, look where Shonda Rhimes has us. Empty and alone (And I don’t even own a damn white hat)!
I’ve been feening for Liv’s crisp white designer coats, brilliantly fitted dresses and things, that quick yet-confused-as-fu*k dialogue, and OMG anyone else kinda miss Harrison (even though that ship is resting heavily at the bottom of the sitcom sea where “characters that Shonda killed off for fun” go!). I won’t go into details about the wet dreams Columbus Short use to cause me, or the fact that I wrote his name down on sheets of paper over and over again as if I were 13 and imagined our wedding and my last name change.
A moment of silence for Harrison.
I know some of you have fallen off of the Scandal wagon. I think I might be the only one really still rooting for America’s side chick. With our dooming presidential status ahead of us, we have to get back into this show so that we have something to take our minds off of the Trump sh*t.
Besides, Olivia’s been through it and back and yet… she’s still fly AF. Just like the plight of most black women, she’s fallen completely apart and managed to get her sh*t back together again…and again! And sure there are parts she couldn’t fix that are really fu*ked up that’s she’d rather hide under her white hat but ain’t that just life? Ain’t that just us? We all know she’s STILL in love with the President of the United States (you know you miss old BAE). So I’m hoping this season her and Fitz will find their Vermont home so they can periodically sneak off into woods, or Fitz will pop up with a catered dinner at a private restaurant, OR maybe they’ll just reunite in an electrical room just off the West Wing of the Oval Office?
I am not ashamed to admit that I miss my #OLITZ.
I had just begun to sit firmly in that mess with Olivia. And then Shonda and ABC (had to go get preggers, huh Kerry!) just snatched all that amazingness right from in front of our eyes!
I have no doubt that this season will be even more amazeballs than the last but I still believe that some things should just be around all year long. Like strawberries and cherries, or those warm starry nights that only happen in the summer. I DIGRESS AGAIN.
HO HUM! Lucky for us… She’s back real soon.
In the meantime, here are 3 of the best Olivia scenes ever.
