KarenS Scandal Review: Episode 2x11, “A Criminal, A Whore, An Idiot, and a Liar”

Olivia

Hey guys, following on from yesterday’s introduction to ABC’s Scandal, I’m going to start reviewing each episode after it airs (well not straight after, you guys know how much I love reviewing these days), so of course if you haven’t seen any of the episodes, but you plan on watching them, do not read this review, I repeat, do not read this review, as there will be spoilers galore.

The episode starts with Liv walking through her door to find Edison sat ever so casually In. Her. Lounge.
I’m pretty sure they broke up last week, when Olivia basically told him to fuck-off after he threatened to prosecute her for allegedly lying about the president’s real condition. Apparently though, Edison, the thick bastard didn’t get the message, because he asks Liv what’s going on with them. I can’t lie, I was desperate for Olivia to stab him in his eye and put him out of my misery. To my ever lasting sorrow, she didn’t do that. Dammit.

Anyway, because basically Edison’s a ratchet mother fucker, he accuses Olivia of being the President’s mistress. As you can imagine, this didn’t go down too well with Olivia, who read him her rather special five-point riot act. It was impressive, and if I could find the exact words, I’d post it. Anyway Olivia eventually throws Edison and his Bill Cosby looking ass out, but not before he tells her that Sally Langston is planning to shaft Fitz by throwing shade on the letter that Mellie forged asking for Fitz to be reinstated.

Once Edison is literally shown the door, Olivia calls Cyrus, warning him of Sally’s plans.

After this, we flashback to a presidential debate where Fitz is doing almost as well as Obama did in his first presidential debate last year. Remember how uncomfortable we all felt watching him fuck things up against the world’s most stupidest man, Mitt Romney? *shudder* Basically, Fitz is not doing well against his opponent Governor Reston (the geezer who murdered his wife’s lover and got away with it), either in the debates, or indeed in the polling. He’s way behind his rival, and it’ll take a miracle to get his numbers up at this rate.

We cut to Olivia, Cyrus and Hollis discussing campaign strategy, and out of the blue, Hollis very casually mentions the possibility of rigging the election. Apparently he has some people in low places who can orchestrate the whole thing. Cyrus is initially appalled, and both he and Olivia dismiss the idea. Mellie joins them with some bad news about the polling numbers, and suggests that they invite Fitz’s father Big Jerry to help with the campaign. It’s clear that this is something that Fitz has avoided doing up till now. With good cause as it turns out.

Fitz is not happy about the idea at all, and we cut to him and Mellie arguing about it in the corridors of their hotel. Olivia catches up with them and suggests that they keep their voices down. Mellie frustrated by Fitz’s refusal to bring his father in, tells Olivia to talk to him, as he clearly doesn’t give a shit about her opinion. Ya think?

After Mellie shuts the door on both of them, Fitz takes Olivia by the hand and drags her to her room so that he can work off some of his frustrations out by getting her horizontal. While he’s trying his best to have his wicked way with her, Olivia is trying to persuade him that now’s the time to bring in his father to help energise the base. Fitz eventually agrees as long as she doesn’t talk about the campaign for the next twenty minutes.

We then flash forward to the present, and Fitz is in the hospital, with Mellie looking all wifely by his side. The doctor is in with them, and she’s telling them that Fitz should be able to get back to work in about three weeks, but in the mean time, may experience dizziness, fatigue and some frontal lobe issues. Because of Mellie’s fuckup however, Fitz can’t afford to be inactive for three weeks, as Sally is just about dancing on his grave, with his job description pinned to her forehead.

Speaking of Sally, we cut to the White House, where she’s having a briefing with the executive team (including Edison The Bell-End). She basically tells them that Fitz is fucked, and is not fit enough to return to work. While she’s spreading her venom, Fitz walks in and apologises for being late. AND THE CROWD WENT WILD!! HALLELUJAH!!! Oh the look on Sally’s face was priceless. Suck it bitch!

Anyway, the meeting has obviously gone well, because Cyrus and Mellie run into the exec team coming out of Fitz’s office, and Sally is looking massively pissed off. This pleases Cyrus no end, who takes delight in baiting Sally as she’s exiting the office. He’s gleeful because he has his president and job back. When they get into the office, Fitz is obviously struggling and demands a clean shirt. The man should not be out of the hospital, and he sarcastically thanks Mellie for screwing him over, so that he has to leave his sickbed three weeks earlier than he should in order to save her ass and his presidency. Yeah Mellie, thanks for that. Power grabbing bint.

We flashback to the campaign trail, where we finally meet Fitz’s father. And he’s a massive fucking bell-end. Sheesh. He proceeds to humiliate Fitz in front of the campaign team, and even Mellie turns into a giggling school girl in front of him. Now this is the guy she wishes she’d married. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he’d seduced her twenty years ago, then passed her along to Fitz. Jerry cuts an impressive figure, and he has the charm and swagger that one would expect in a seasoned politician, but it’s fairly clear at this point that Fitz was raised by a wolf. I felt as sick as Fitz looked, and I could tell that his father’s presence was negatively impacting him. Olivia noticed his discomfort, and at one point looked pityingly at him.

At dinner that evening, Fitz gets drunk, and manages to throw shade at his father every time he speaks. I particularly liked Fitz reminding his father that the reason he didn’t even run for president was because men who get caught shagging prostitutes usually aren’t suitable candidates for presidency. I confess, I laughed out loud. Jerry leaves the table prematurely, after Fitz continues to slag him off. I know Fitz is behaving like a recalcitrant child at this point, but personally I loved it. Jerry was a twat, and he needed a good beat down. Erm…not that I condone violence against old people. That’s just barbaric…right?
Erm, anyway, where was I? Oh that’s right, Mellie drags her behind after Jerry to apologise for Fitz’s behaviour, and perhaps to offer him a blow job or two. I jest. I think.

We cut to a pissed off Olivia entering the elevator on her way up to bed. Fitz catches her, and proceeds to try to feel her up. Olivia isn’t happy because he’s drunk, and fights him off her. Whilst Fitz is attempting to grope a struggling Olivia, the elevator doors open up to a waiting Mellie who surprising apologises to Olivia. Say what? Basically Mellie is frightened that because of Fitz’s behaviour, Olivia may decide to leave the team, something that terrifies her, because she knows that she needs Olivia to keep Fitz focused. Poor Olivia, she looked guilty as hell.

We go back to the present and Fitz is looking like death warmed up in the situation room. He’s laying out a plan to capture/kill the East Sudanese leader, and he stumbles, momentarily losing his train of thought, and struggling to recall the name of said leader. Sally is in the room, and helps him out. Wasn’t that silence the longest ever? Poor Fitz.

Back to the campaign, and Jerry is throwing his weight around, and generally making Fitz feel small. Jerry wants them to run a dirtier campaign. Fitz, barely able to look anybody in the eye, submits to his father’s wishes. You can see that his antics with Liv in the elevator is weighing him down. Olivia looks on concerned as Fitz walks away, looking nothing like the confident man that she’s used to dealing with.

We then cut to a cafe, where Olivia has assembled Huck, Abby, and Harrison. This is their first meeting. Huck has his Hagrid swag going on, Abby looks like a Stepford Wife, and Harrison is just Harrison.
They attempt to gather dirt on Governor Reston, but there isn’t much to go on, except for the fact that he’s been popping Prozac for twenty plus years. Jerry comes up with the idea to hit him with it during the next debate.

We then cut to Olivia who’s sitting with some snakes on a plane. Cyrus, Verna, and Hollis are discussing rigging the election again. Olivia is having none of it. Cyrus on the other hand is definitely considering it. Mellie comes over and Hollis invites her to sit down. He’s about to let her in on the plan. Ugh.

Back in the present, Sally is asking Hollis what she should do about Fitz’s stumble moment, Hollis advises her to do nothing and let Fitz hang himself with his pride.

Back to the campaign trail, and although Fitz’s polling numbers have slightly improved, they still have a long way to go.

The next scene we go to is the team prepping for Fitz’s next debate. He’s shouting at everybody in frustration, and Olivia calls him out on his petulant behaviour. They have a shouting match, during which Olivia asks him if he truly wants to be president. Fitz answers yes, but when Olivia asks him why he wants to be president, he clearly has no answer. Olivia screams the question at him again, and he shouts that he doesn’t know what she wants him to say. Olivia recognises that this has been the problem all along – Fitz trying to be who other people want him to be, and saying what they want him to say. It was a touching moment, one that I will expand upon later when I take a closer look at the key scenes.

Cut to present day, and Fitz is insisting on holding a press conference to show the country that he is back and fit to lead. Cyrus has called Olivia to help him change Fitz’s mind, because he’s not listening to either him or Mellie. Cyrus, really? When was the last time that man listened to anything Mellie had to say?

Olivia lets herself into the Oval, where Fitz is still working, despite the fact that he really should be in bed. They share a tender moment, when she walks up to his chair, takes out his handkerchief and mops his brow. She then asks him why doing the press conference is so important to him. Fitz explains that this is his office, and come hell or high water, he will be occupying it, and the American people needed to know that he was ready to get back to work. There’s a determination in Fitz that has been missing for most of his tenure as president thus far, and Olivia is visibly impressed by it.

When Cyrus enters the room, Olivia tells him that Fitz will be doing the press conference, and he will be taking questions. At this point, she is standing behind Fitz’s chair. You don’t need to be a genius to understand the symbolism of that.

This scene was everything to me. It really solidified where they both were in terms of their relationship, and for the first time really, (in the present day at least) we saw Liv comfortable with her feelings for him. In this moment, she was all in with him, and she didn’t care who knew it.

The next few scenes show Olivia prepping Fitz simultaneously for his present day press conference, and his campaign trail debate against Governor Reston. I particularly loved these scenes, because once again, it showed us how much Fitz looks to Olivia for support and advice. During her pep talk, Olivia reminds Fitz about introducing the matter of Reston’s addiction to Prozac during the debate, she tells present day Fitz to make sure he takes a sip of water to buy himself some time if he feels himself sliding like he did in the Situation Room. Both present day Olivia, and campaign trail Olivia ends her pep talk by telling Fitz to show the American people who he is. I have to say, I loved this montage. So much.

Fitz does well in the debate, refusing to bring up the fact that Reston has been on Prozac for twenty years. Instead he opens himself up to the town hall audience, earning him a proud smile from both Olivia and Cyrus. Daddy Dearest is not happy about this and as Olivia, Fitz and Cyrus are leaving the auditorium arm in arm, looking really pleased with themselves, The Grim Reaper AKA Big Daddy Jerry shows his face and proceeds to remind Fitz of all the ways that he’s superior to him. Fitz fights back this time, and tells Jerry The Dick that he refuses to be like him, and basically tells him to do the Truffle Shuffle.
Did anybody else notice the lovely moment between Fitz and Olivia as they were exiting the town hall? He had one arm round her, and the other arm round Cyrus (Symbolism, symbolism, symbolism!) and when Cyrus tells him how great he did, he looks down at Olivia as if searching for confirmation, and she gives him a quick nod as if to say, you were great. LOVED THIS!

Anyway, at the press conference, present day Fitz is announcing that the East Sudanese leader has been captured. He takes some questions, and only stumbles briefly when one of the reporters asks him about the possibility of Fitz being affected by PTSD. At this point, he took a sip of water, and answered the question. Fitz leaves the room to great applause and a standing ovation. Olivia looks on, her pride in him evident. Sally Langston, not so much.

Speaking of Sally, she later comes into the Oval Office, and offers Fitz her letter accepting his reinstatement. She acknowledges that being president isn’t a cake walk. I think she was sincere, but this is Sally, having seen her in action, it’s hard to be one hundred percent sure that she meant what she said. It was actually quite a nice olive branch moment nevertheless.

Flashback to the campaign, and once again, Olivia is back with the snakes on the plane, and they’re still talking about rigging the election. Cyrus insists that the decision has to be unanimous. There’s only seven days until the actual election, but Olivia is still standing strong. She walks down to see Fitz, where he tells her that he’s just got word that his dad has died.

We next see Fitz, after his dad’s funeral presumably at his Santa Barbara ranch, chopping up wood with an axe. Olivia comes out to make sure he’s ok. Fitz insists that he’s not sad, he’s relieved, but as we all know, regardless of your relationship with your parent, their passing will always hurt. Olivia understands this and stands quietly while Fitz puts a brave face on his grief. Fitz goes on to explain that a story he told about his father getting him a dog for his 10th birthday was a lie. Apparently he actually sat outside his dad’s office, listening to his father have sex with his secretary. The memories hurt him, you can see this. At one point, Fitz stops what he’s doing, walks up to Olivia and tells her that he wants to be president. He asks her if she thinks he’ll make a good president? “You’ll make a great president” she tells him. Fitz briefly touches her hand, then walks back to the wood. Fitz picks up the axe and tries unsuccessfully to chop through a particularly bothersome piece of timber. Fitz fights with the piece of wood, his frustration and grief shining through. Olivia orders him to put the axe down. She steps up onto a piece of flat timber, and holds her hands out to Fitz, who takes it. They look at each other for a while, and Fitz unable to hold in his hurt anymore, falls into her arms. Olivia holds him whilst he cries. This moment made me cry. More analysis on this later.

We cut back to the present day and Olivia walks back into her apartment to find Twat Face sitting in her lounge again. That fucking man. Ugh. Anyway, cutting a long story short, Edison proposes to Olivia. SAY WHAT??? My God that man couldn’t catch a clue if it came with a note attached telling him to fuck off.

Back at the Oval, it’s night time, Fitz is in bed, and Mellie is prattling on about going back to the way things were, being grateful that she doesn’t have to change Fitz’s diapers for him, and how great his approval rating is. She’s completely oblivious to the fact that Fitz is looking at her like she’s lost her motherfucking marbles. When Mellie makes the mistake of of asking him what he wants, now he’s so popular with the American people. Fitz tells her that he wants a divorce. And every Scandal fan across the world rejoices.

Unfortunately that joy doesn’t last very long as we cut back to four days prior to the election. Fitz gets the bad news that although his numbers are way better than they were, there are three towns in Ohio that they need to lock down.

Later Cyrus reads the riot act to Liv, telling her that she’s just like him, willing to do what it takes. This was yet another one of Cyrus’ amazing monologues, and it leaves Liv an emotional wreck on the floor. The choice for her is making Fitz happy or taking a chance, Fitz losing, and ultimately losing himself, with his father’s last words to him, ringing in his ear, branding him a loser. The thought of this devastates Olivia. She wants this presidency for him.

One day away from the election and once again, Olivia is back in the snake pit. As the rest of the cabal are talking last minute campaign strategies, Olivia tells them she’s in. No longer is she on a plane with loads of snakes, she’s become one of those snakes. She’s just made a deal with the devil, and we know it’ll come back to haunt her.

My Thoughts

This episode took a lot out of me emotionally. How does a TV show manage to do that? I cried for the majority of it. I cried for Fitz, past and present, I cried for Olivia, past and present, and I cried for the future of their relationship. Right now, Olivia is where we’ve wanted her to be for the last two seasons, fully accepting of how she feels about Fitz, being with him 100 per cent. I know this will change though, and I’m fearful of what hoops the Scandal writers will make Olivia jump through.

My biggest fear is that she accepts Edison’s proposal. I will go absolutely berserk if she says yes to the guy who threatened to prosecute her, and basically called her a criminal, a whore, a liar, and an idiot. But more than that, I’ll go mad if she accepts a man that she doesn’t even love enough to pick up the phone when he calls. She needs to once and for all make it clear that even if he was the last man in the world, she’d choose to mate with a tree first. I’m pretty sure it would be just as stimulating.

Favourite scenes

Oval Office

I loved everything about this scene. I loved how Fitz’s face lit up when Olivia walked in. I loved how she walked in like she owned the place. I loved how natural she was with him, and how open she was with him. Her body language was totally different from her usual defensive posture, and for the first time ever in the present, Liv kissed him, not the other way round. That calls for church bells and everything! I loved that she dabbed his brow, and I loved that you could see how much she meant to him when he looked at her. Those moments were perfect. This scene once again served to illustrate the difference between his relationship with Olivia, and the life he leads with Mellie. Mellie loves Fitz the president, Olivia loves Fitz the man, warts and all. Olivia loves and respects Fitz, and listens to him, Mellie constantly undermines him and overreaches like crazy in an effort to get what she wants. Olivia always puts Fitz first, Mellie always puts Mellie first.

In this scene, you can also see the difference in Fitz. There’s a new determination about him. He’s no longer willing to be a passenger in his life, he wants to take the driving seat, and for the first time, we feel that finally he actually wants to be president. In the past, it’s always seemed to me that he considered his presidency a burden due to the fact that it meant that he couldn’t be with Olivia, now it’s great to see that he’s gained some clarity in that area.

Once again, there was so much said in the silences between them. you could literally read their thoughts as they looked at one another, and if it’s possible, I fell in love with them all over again.

The Town Hall Scene

Although this was a fraught scene, full of anger and frustration, it once again illustrated how well these two people connect, even in the throes of a drag-out, full throttle argument. Olivia wasn’t afraid to call Fitz out on his bullshit, but unlike his arguments with Mellie, she only wants to help him, not manipulate him. It was also lovely to see Olivia the fixer, acknowledge that even she can’t fix this for him, no matter how much she wanted to, and you could see that it was killing her to tell him that basically he needed to sort his own shit out. For all intents and purposes this was a real couple engaged in a real argument, they weren’t afraid to have those hard conversations that often lead to resentment and loathing. I love this side of Olivia, we’re so used to seeing her self-contained to the point where we fear she’ll combust if she doesn’t let some of her tension out soon. There is literally nobody else that she reveals this side of herself to, and it’s actually quite lovely to see.

Chopping Wood/After Funeral Scene

Oh my word. This was another amazing Olivia and Fitz interaction on a scale that is hard to quantify with mere words. But I will try.

As Fitz was bringing down the axe on the timber, you couldn’t help but see the tension and stress radiating from every bit of his body. This day had been unbelievably tough for him, yet where’s Mellie? Where is his wife to offer him comfort? As per usual when he’s down and needs a shoulder to rest on, or a hand cradling his, she’s nowhere to be seen. Instead once again it’s Olivia who senses that this day is harder for him than he’s showing. She knows him, and she knows that regardless of the bitter nature of his relationship with his father, he will be grief stricken on this day.

As Fitz recounts his tenth birthday, and how instead of being the recipient of celebratory fanfare, he sat outside his father’s office, listening to him have sex with his secretary, my heart cried for that ten year old boy. The way it would for any child who has had to grow up without the one thing that every child needs in order to have a fulfilling childhood. It finally makes sense to me, this need for him to have Olivia in his life. At this point, it seems that she is the only person who’s ever loved him freely, without demanding something in return.

I’ve seen a few Olivia haters on Twitter describe her as a whore, and all I can say is, their definition is a little off. The fact that she was sleeping with Fitz doesn’t make her a whore. Even if she didn’t love him, it still wouldn’t make her a whore. She may have compromised her principles to a certain degree, insofar as she did indeed sleep with a married man, but there is certainly nothing transactional about their relationship. In fact, it could be argued that the fact that Mellie gave up her career for him, and had kids for him, so that he could eventually run for president, thus making her the First Lady of The United States, was by far, a more cynical transactional agreement. They both got something out of their union. Now I’m not calling Mellie a whore, but the definition of a whore, probably applies to her more so than Olivia. Olivia and Fitz are together, because they love each other. It’s as plain and simple as that.

The Town Hall Debate/Press Conference

I loved this montage, because once again it showed how Fitz looks to Olivia for guidance on the important occurrences in his life. He trusts her implicitly, and he knows that she always has his best interests at heart. Once again, Mellie is nowhere around to be seen. I loved that both Cyrus and Olivia looked on proudly with tears in their eyes. Fitz had at last shown the people who he was.

Notable Moments

Elevator Scene

Fitz behaved stupidly. He shouldn’t have done what he did, but at no point did I feel that it was going to go too far. Olivia herself dismissed the incident when she brought it up during their townhall argument. I have absolutely nothing more to say about it, and I’m not interested in what the Fitz haters have to say on the subject.

Olivia and Edison

I have definite feelings about Edison. I hate that he’s anywhere near Olivia and in my head, I’m always re-writing their conversations. For example, when he proposed to her, this was how I would have scripted that scene:

Edison - “I want to marry you”

Olivia – “Edison, if we were on a desert island, and I had to pick between you and a palm tree to marry, I’d be skittling up that tree without a backwards look. And in case you don’t understand that, let me say it slowly in words that you might understand better. I. Wouldn’t. Marry. You. If. You. Were. The. Last. Fucking. Man. On Earth. Got it?”

Yes, I think that would have been a far more satisfactory response.

Mellie and Fitz

Mellie can be such a dick. Watching her interact with Big Jerry raised my suspicions about their previous relationship. Like I already intimated, It wouldn’t surprise me if Jerry had passed Mellie onto Fitz once he’d finished with her.
The scene with her and Fitz in the bedroom just served to highlight what a selfish twat she can be. I have nothing more to say about them really, they just don’t work.

Olivia’s Decision

This broke my heart as much as it did Olivia’s. I hated, hated, hated with a passion that the writers took her down this path. Not only is she now a criminal, she compromised her own ideals in the most fundamental way. Her awe during the Constitution scene in 208 revealed her patriotism, and the fact that she circumvented her love for her country in order to give Fitz what he wanted shows how much she loves him.
People may argue that what she did was ultimately selfish, and that Fitz would have gotten over the loss, and I’d agree with one of those points. Fitz would have indeed gotten over the loss, but I don’t agree that it was a selfish act. As we’ve seen her do, over and over again, Olivia put his needs above her own. She compromised her ideals so that he could have his legacy. The fact that the legacy is forever tainted is another matter altogether.

My despair at her choice comes from a place of worry over what this will mean for her and Fitz when he finds out about the election rigging. The man didn’t even want to use a personal weakness to score political points off his opponent in the debate, how is he going to feel when he finds out that the person that he trusts above all others was complicit in the act of defrauding his country? I’m not sure he’s going to be able to forgive her easily. Mellie conspiring along with the cabal wouldn’t surprise him, because he’s long known that there are no lengths that she will not stoop to, in order to secure what she wants.

Everybody at the table gained something from the rigging. Olivia, in a misguided effort to make Fitz happy, lost her very soul. There can be no doubt that Olivia loves Fitz as much as he loves her. The sacrifice that she made on that plane, highlights this perfectly.

My Hopes and Predictions

Firstly, I hope that Edison meets his maker in the next episode. I can’t lie, his presence in Olivia’s life is making me insanely angry, and as this is a TV show, I’d very much like for him to be taken out by a sniper. Sorry.

Secondly, I really hope that Fitz continues with his decision to divorce Mellie. Their relationship is so toxic at this point, that there’s little hope for recovery. His accident has given him a new clarity on the direction that he wants his life to take, and I really hope that he stays the course, despite Mellie’s machinations. It’s time that Fitgerald Grant III took control of his life.

Thirdly, I’m still holding out hope that the scam was already in place by the time Olivia acquiesced. I know that it doesn’t negate the fact that she still agreed to go along with the fraud in the end, but at least she’d be able to sleep better knowing that her decision had always been a moot point.

Lastly, I hope that Fitz doesn’t find out about the betrayal, I really do, but in a way, once it’s out, at least Olivia would be free from potential blackmail. It would probably take a while, but I know that Fitz would eventually forgive her. At the end of the day, she’s still the only person who has loved him unconditionally, and continues to do so every day.

    Speaking of Sally, we cut to the White House, where she’s having a briefing with the executive team (including Edison The Bell-End). She basically tells them that Fitz is fucked, and is not fit enough to return to work. While she’s spreading her venom, Fitz walks in and apologises for being late. AND THE CROWD WENT WILD!! HALLELUJAH!!! Oh the look on Sally’s face was priceless. Suck it bitch!

    YES YES YES, I loved that! I think I watched that scene like several times. LOVED IT.

    Favorite scenes were the one I listed above plus the ones you mentioned. The elevator scene was just a mistake. My sister was just surprised his wife flat out apologized for him being drunk (which he was) and assuming he was attacking her (never realizing that they are having an affair).

    I hope to God that Olivia doesn’t accept Edison’s proposal, I don’t think she will. I concur with Edison’s demise. Every time he shows in a scene up I lose interest. Lastly, I think there will be some type of twist that will free Olivia. Has to be. This is TV.

    I am so glad you will be reviewing each episode! and giving fans a place where we can gush to our hearts content.

    I do not know you but thanks so much for this awesome review. So many people are talking about the elevator scene and how fitz grabbed Liv and had sex with her but as you said I look at them as a REAL couple and real couples are not perfect. Your review was great. If only you had the power to make Edison disappear. Can Huck please take him out???

    OK,you’ve convinced me. I’ve been putting off watching this show even though I always intend to catch up (netflix is a godsend.) But after your review I’ll be doing a marathon watch this weekend.

    So thanks.

  • @Nataya: Hi Nataya, thanks so much, and yes, Edison is the worst! I have to say, I wish they hadn’t included the elevator scene, it was totally unnecessary and only gave the haters more ammunition.

  • @Lee: DO IT! It is so good. Remember though, you’ll probably hate Fitz, then you’ll love him, then you’ll hate him, then you’ll love him for good, lol.
