Can’t wait to share this episode with you.
Can’t wait to share this episode with you.
I was so impressed with the levels of growth Fitz showed in this episode. It’s not often you see someone who has a firm opinion acknowledge what they are doing wrong and course correct. Most people are too hopped up on emotion to do that. Especially after the kind of rolling tumble of a fight Fitz had with Marcus.
We go into it more on the show, so make sure you tune in to check it out.
I shared our secret on this episode of the podcast. We’re starting a podcast network – WOOHOO! We are looking for hosts and cohosts of the show. Can’t wait to see who applies! Here’s the link…
Here we go!
Mellie was almost salivating over the President of that foreign country…
And if this were a cartoon he would have had those little hearts over his eyes too…
Abby and David…what can we say?
Well we said it in the Afterdark.
We even talked about Fitz and his “hi” right outside of Olivia’s door while she was with her playtoy…
Join us for this episode of Scandal.
Us against Them.
It’s My Turn, Dad…
Olivia had a lot to say this episode about anyone taking any type of power from her.
What did you think about her version of power? Hit us up on Twitter and tell us what your ideas of power are…
As always, if you need a website feel free to reach out to us at Karasi Media Group. We’d love to work with you.
One of the most pivotal moments in the double header finale was the speech Mama Pope gave while Poppa Pope and Olivia stood behind the window watching…
Let ask you a question….how many times have you felt any or all of the things Maya shared in that monologue?
To answer your question, what does that monologue, Mama Pope or even Scandal have to do with you? Everything.
I could hear the thunderous claps of ashy brown hands, amens and church shouts bellowed around the world. Finally, someone was vindicating us–speaking out for US instead of bashing us and making us feel like we’re not enough just as we are. I could feel the breeze from the unison of nods of thousands of generations of black women who have felt, do feel and are feeling the same way about the state of our “place” in the world and the perception of us in it.
Picture this…in 1962, Malcolm X said, “The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.” It’s 2017 and not much has changed…since 1962 around the protection, lack of care and support for black women.
Everywhere we turn, someone is telling us how to be, how to think, how to act and even when we’re doing what we’re “supposed” to be doing by standards we did not architect, we’re still unilaterally cast in a negative light… How do you rise above all of that, ?
How do you rise above the angry black woman stereotype, the bitter black woman rhetoric, the emasculating achievement gap, the bleak realities in employment spaces and the full responsibilities of family that lays across our backs? How do we remove the barely concealed requirement of cultural assimilation and celebrate you as a woman?”
(I mean you’d think by now the world would know we’re magic but it doesn’t always.) And because I got tired of waiting for the world to catch up to our greatness, I created what I wanted to see…for women like us.
Now you may think that admirable or ridiculous, …but I think it’s what we’re due….
We invite you to join us on the next Scandal Podcast (yes we know it’s Mother’s Day) but sneak off and get ready to celebrate for an hour or so with us on the podcast. We’d love to see you there!
We had such a great time on this episode, Gladiators. The whole gang was together and things were divine! I hope you enjoyed Mercy as much as we did and we’ll see you on the next episode of the Scandal Podcast.
Remember, we tape the show live on Sundays this season (6) at 2pm EST.
That’s a lot to live up to, isn’t it? After all, we’ve had 101 episodes of Scandal.
But there was something about this episode. Maybe it was all the use of flashbacks or the fact that Fitz made Olivia sat her ass down somewhere…it could have even been the fact that he sent Wharf packing to an outpost in the deep wide yonder… Maybe it was Olivia being removed from the cross that she thinks she has to hold up every single week.
Hell it may have even been Mellie getting what she “thinks” she deserves…which kinda serves her ass right because honestly she’s been harping on what she “deserves” for 6 seasons now and I’m kinda tired of it. What you deserve is to be in bed with some murderers who are now going to ruin your life because you’re self righteous and you know good and well Cyrus won the presidency with Frankie and is supposed to actually be president now. Mellie, get the Trump out of here…
I don’t know what it was but I enjoyed it. I hope you did, too.
