If you haven't seen Scandal
and want to catch up, beware; there are minor spoilers ahead!
I've been a fan of Scandal
for a while now. I picked it up sometime after the second season aired and I saw a DVD for the first time in a Best Buy when I was meeting up with a friend for a Korean BBQ lunch date. I read the synopsis and it seemed interesting: someone who makes scandalous scandals disappear, as though she's a magical cleaner-upper of murders (which I'm pretty sure she's cleaned up more than a few of), or Mr. Wolfe from Pulp Fiction.
So I decided to check it out.
. I was hooked from the first episode. The twists, the turns, the drama. The juicy, juicy
drama. Somehow Shonda Rhimes managed to make you sympathize with an adulterer, our protagonist Olivia Pope played by Kerry Washington. How? I'm still not sure.
But then Mellie (the show's true salvation, and the First Lady of the United States...whose husband, the President Fitzgerald Grant III is carrying on an affair with Olivia) came along and my favourite character was born. Mellie can do no wrong. She is flawless.
Somehow, here we are, three seasons later and about to headlong right into the fourth. It's been a bumpy ride, and there have been some questionable things, but when the show's premise is that the protagonist is having an affair you're supposed to sympathize with, I guess anything's fair game.
Tony Goldwyn, who plays El Presidente Fitzie, sat down with Vulture
correspondent Danielle Henderson and answered some of the more pressing questions.
He revealed what he thinks to be the top three rides
on Olivia and Fitz' (what even is their ship name? Olitz? Fivia?) emotional roller coaster, whether or not their relationship is sustainable, what he thinks about Fitz' old pal Jake Ballard (played by the man candy of the series, Scott Foley) and more.
