Cyrus started it. He quoted her. So throughout Fitz and Cyrus’ entire conversation at the end of the episode I was thinking about the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Getting Back Together”. Fitz is definitely the Jake Gyllenhaal to Cyrus’ TSwift. Except Taylor > Cyrus, all day everyday. Anyway, the metaphor I’m trying to convey here is that Fitz keeps pulling Cyrus back in, no matter what. Because Cyrus is quite literally a Fitz stan (stalker fan). You all know how I feel about Cyrus (bleh), so I knew that when the episode started with him and one of his annoying little rants that we would be in for a bumpy ride—and the ride doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. But if Cyrus can help keep the West Angola secret under wraps then I guess it’s worth it. Although, I can’t be the only one thinking that Elizabeth North is not a good enemy to have…does cutting her from the White House staff completely really seem like a good idea?
Olivia, as usual, saved the day by just being her perfect self when she gave that raw interview where she admitted that she wishes she’d never met Fitz. That wouldn’t made everything so much easier and caused so much less pain, but it also wouldn’t have given us this amazing TV show, am I right? Anyway, by letting people know that the way she felt was not a “choice” and more than anything, she feels for the lives she’s messed up in the process, she became more relatable. The main problem now is keeping Fitz in office. Although, would it be THAT big a deal if he got impeached? He’s been president for about 15 years now. They could finally move to Vermont!
P&A has a mole and his name is Marcus (possibly). I know he made it seem like he’s just pretending to work for Gibson and that other lady to get inside info, but it would not surprise me at all if he was playing them both. Thing 1 and Thing 2, figure out his true intentions please! PS: I like Thing 1 and Thing 2 better than Huckleberry Quinn. My usual request to Shondaland stays the same: please don’t ever have them hookup again. P&A brought in Leo Bergen to help Olivia fix herself, and it kind of worked but kind of didn’t because 1. He is annoyingly cocky, and 2. Liv can fix herself, even if she’s not supposed to. I like to see Leo every once in a while, but I ship David and Abby so he needs to stay away from her.
Next time I hope we get to learn a little more about Jake and his wife, and maybe Charlie could come back because he’s my fave. And less Cyrus, please.
