Somebody get me some Dr. Miracle”s because Shonda done snatched out all my edges…All right, I know some of you weren”t feeling tonight’s Winter finale…and while the Olitz (Olivia and Fitz) tennis love match works my nerve…this episode had my mouth wide open. So here’s your recap!
Tonight’s episode opened with a Parental Discretion disclaimer….My first thought was, all the screwing that goes on on this show, NOW they decide to do a disclaimer…I wasn’t expecting this. What was THIS? We’ll get to that in a minute.
The episode opened with Liv all up in the White House like she was Jackie O…picking out china, conducting tours, and losing her frigging mind as she played First Lady. Liv thought she was about to get a real problem to solve when the Senator asked for her help….but the Senator wanted help finding a Cookie recipe.
The good ol boys basically told Mellie to shut up, look cute, and vote for their bill. Fiesty Mellie showed up right before the vote and decided not to play ball. She pulled a filibuster to stall the spending bill and keep Planned Parenthood from being defunded. Liv watched….drooling at the power moves Mellie was playing. Mellie was losing steam and couldn’t keep up the 16 hours she needed to filibuster…so Liv handled it, sending in the VP to give Mellie a much-needed pee break.
Lizzie hit it and quit it with David….and when he tried to give her a Christmas gift, she pulled a dude move and told David they weren’t in the gift-giving category…Ricki Lake, I mean, Susan, the VP, showed up, looking like a lovesick 13 year old. She gave David a gift and in true trifling fashion, he regifted the braclet Liz rejected and gave it to Susan. Ol Liz wasn”t too hardcore because she got in her feelings when she later noticed the VP wearing the bracelet.
And the “Slayed It” award goes to Huck! Poppa Pope was trying to figure out what was Huck’s plan. (He should know Huck is the strong, silent, completely crazy type). Poppa Pope talked about Huck’s kid, so Huck came this close to snapping – and snapping Rowan”s neck. Instead, he just leaned in and talked about Liv, asking Rowan, “Which white boy do you approve of being inside of your daughter?” …Poppa Pope was trying to play mind games, but that only works on folks with normal minds….#HuckingCrazy
Jake tracked down Lazarus…the real Lazarus. Poppa Pope tried to tell everyone it wasn’t him. Turned out it was Brian White, who they brought back just to have Jake put a bullet in his head.
Now, to the parental discretion….some of y’all may have seen that coming but I did not. At all. I’m wondering what she’s doing at the clinic when she needs to be at the state dinner. And two seconds later, Liv was laying on the table, having an abortion! Yes, online casino Shonda went there. Now somebody needs to tell me who dat baby’s pappy????
Be Careful what you wish for…Mellie tried to warn Liv….Sidepieces think the grass is greener….get over there and see its Astroturf. Liv stormed home from the clinic and since her wine wouldn’t do it….headed for the hooch. Fitz demanded to know what was going on and they had a HUGE fight…Thats what happens when the side chick becomes the main chick….you get the main chick problems. He told her she liked him unavailable.
She yelled that he wanted her to be his property. They went back and forth til Fitz gave her the ultimate diss – “You’re worse than Mellie.” Bottom line…Liv ain”t no homeade brownies kind of chick. So she packed her stuff and strutted out the White House and back to her apartment and her popcorn and her fishbowl of wine.
Now….I know some of you wanted an edge of your seat cliffhanger, but this was a different kind of quiet ending. Poppa Pope and Jake broke bread….Liv ordered a new sofa (who thought she was telling another guy to come up?)….Quinn was able to get her some dysfunctional loving from Charlie….the ending allowed us to exhale….Having said that, what makes, no what MADE, Olivia the bomb, was the “Its handled”…so here’s to hoping when they come back Feb. 11th, she can get back to the business of handling…
PS—I wish that filibuster stuff was really fiction…
PPS—Find Olivia a new boo….I mean, how many seasons can they go back and forth?
PPPS—We’re not gonna even talk about that super recovery Liv had after her abortion…
So, what did you think? Underwhelmed or Satisfied? And who do you think was the baby”s daddy?
