as always, papa pope is delivering monologues that make me cheer right. [i have watched the “You. Are. A. BOY.” clip about 20 times] this man is acting his ass off. i’m here for it.
and watching him put his daughter on notice while she sat there looking petulant was great. that speech put the fear o’ god in me…i would have been took my ass out of that toxic city.
ugh…olivia and fitz..every time i see them together, i groan. let the damn vermont-jam dream DIE olivia. it’s not gonna happen. and i’m sorry, can we just think about the fact that she did not even bring up the fact that he gave her father a very intimate run down of what they do behind closed doors? i mean…why did she not read this triflin’ man the riot act for what he said to her daddy about them? i don’t understand, and i’m tired of their “relationship”. them getting 10 minutes of private talk time (wherein they just argue and do the whole “i can’t do this” “but i need u” thing back and forth, exchange a few sloppy kisses and go “bye”) and then gettin it in every few months is not a real relationship. olivia is not going to be first lady (fitz probably won’t even get reelected) he’s not leaving mellie, at least not anytime soon because i don’t think he’s bout it, and yall are not running away together. time to let go.
how does she have the nerve to act like mellie giving her a list of people to date is disrespect when she’s been the constant side piece for years? how dat work? just…let it go.
and of course…shout out to poor lauren the secretary. baby does not get paid enough for this shit.
