It was not about Liv not dealing with Fitz committing murder, it was about what she felt they had done to him with defiance. Liv also felt awful about what she put her team through and that’s why she went back to them. This is a show for intelligent tv viewers. You have to listen, and watch and think. I want Fitz and Liv together but there is a lot more character wise to be developed before they can be together. This show is good because of the entire cast and the role that each character plays. I love this show and won’t stop watching. I think it is one of the best written and acted shows on television.

Scandal is one of my favorite shows. I would like to see Fitz divorce Mellie and be with Olivia. I was somewhat disappointed in how Season Two ended, but I am looking forward to the Fall season. Overall, I think Shonda Rhimes is an excellent writer.

Really disappointed for Fitz and Olivia but in order for the series to continue it has to be….i dont know if I want to watch this again. Maybe she should get together with the handsome guard her daddy asigned to sleep with her. Now that would be interesting for a couple of episodes…

The only reason this show is what it is, is because of the relationship between Fitz and Olivia. If it weren’t for them I would have not continued to watch it. It’s not about liking to watch people commit adultery. Fitz’s wife has always been a disgusting, manipulating little girl who was given away by daddy to “play her part”. All she cares about is herself. She’s selfish and deserves everything she gets. If Olivia and the president don’t ever actually get together this whole show is going down the drain.

I can not watch the finale again and I usually rewatch all episodes of Scandal. The end with Fritz going back to Mellie is too much for me. I hope Shondra has a way to fix that. I can not watch the show if that is going to be what we have to look forward to. As far as Fritz and Olivia goes-love forgives all. Please put Fritz and Olivia back together. I don’ care how you do it.

This thing is all messed up now. The whole thing is upside down. Now Olivia is weak. she lost the white hot. She ‘s not that smart anymore as it was in season 1. Man this show is a great show, but too many many complication. F*** Shonda Rhymes

By definition, any married man who cheats on his wife is WEAK. He wasn’t weak because he went back to Mellie. He is weak because he stayed married to Mellie for 20 years knowing he did not love her and wanted something more. He has often used Mellie for political expediency just like he did in the season finale to ensure his re-election and just like he did he when he killed Verna to protect his legacy. Fitz’ problem is Fitz.

What’s so wrong about a man going back to his WIFE. Your crazy if you believe Olivia and him being together is right. If anything Olivia should have hooked up with that dude she a sex tape. Now I don’t agree with adultery, but I would for someone to mess with someone not married than someone married. I mean cheating on someone is just wrong, because in the end someones feelings are going to get hurt. And yes Mellie is one crazy chick, but Fitz married her. He knew from day one what he was getting into, but did he stop it, NO. He went through it as planned. Lesson learned for everyone…. be careful with what you get yourself into, because it not always easy to get yourself out of it.

WoW! loved it. Scandal has become my hubby, daughter and my bonding tv show. Political mysteries are so twisted. Watched Grey’s Anatomy when it first came on, my hubby and daughter watched Private Practice and now we all watch Scandal.

Changed my perception of Kerry Washington and introduced me to some awesome stars Huck,,,luv this character and Cyrus …it’s a very good show which makes you think..who did what, how will this turn out….etc. All in all, the stars who have parts on this series REALLY know their purposes…D** good acting

Hope it continues for a long time. I am so tired of these reality tv shows with who wants to marry who and housewives fussing and cussing at each other and most of all tired of hearing about the Kardashians.

I’m sick of the constant Fitz and Olivia break ups, and all the sanctimony around the affair.
‘Fans of adultery’? Really?
Grow up.
Half the world has committed adultery.
I haven’t but I don’t sit in judgement of those who have.
The man’s marriage was a mess before Olivia cane along.
Of course Olivia has gotten him shot, embroiled him in a crime and dumped him 3 times now, so maybe he is better off with Mellie, but if I was him I’d leave them both.
If the point of the exercise was to put me off the relationship Shonda Rhimes succeeded admirably.
Unfortunately, in the process she also put me off Olivia, and the whole show.
I will not be tuning in for the season starter in fall, and I’m not the only one.
She should have left Fitz and Olivia together.

BRAVA!! I completely agree– I was certain Morton’s character was Olivia’s father (no surprise there) but really disappointed by the breakup, even though it was well-scripted. I will not be watching the show any more–it is an insult to interracial couples who struggle to stay together.

I agree. i was very disappointed by the breakup. This is the second time Oliv has done this to Fitz. I too wonder if I will continue to see the show next season for that reason. It’s Shonda’s call, but I felt she should have written the script in such away to keep them together. I am sure later on, they will probably be back together again. But, I am tired of this off and on!

Are u serious!!! Looks like to me you are a fan of adultery. Why would you want a married man to continue to sleep with his mistress. No matter if its tv or not its just not right he shouldve divorced his wife way before he even came in contact with her then it would be ok for them to be together. Just sad!!!

I’m guessing the real political life is much worse than this tv show.

I can understand your displeasure with the show as I am sure you don’t watch any of the reality tv shows which glorify having babies out of wedlock, getting preggie while still married, the tv soaps, housewives series. I’m interesting in what you do view. Not judging you or meaning to argue just trying to find out.

I think the reason for the break-up was because Olivia does not want to leave her team. For the sake of the team, Olivia wants to remain their gladiator. Remember, Harrison, Huck, Abby and Quinn are totally devoted and loyal to Olivia above all else. In fact, every character in this show makes it very interesting and realistic. As for the moral issue, I am 68 years old and have witnessed how several long time ‘mistresses’ remain that way. They watched as their married lovers grew families of their own. Some have even had children for their married lovers but never showed interests in relationships with other men. Unfortunately, this lifestyle is reality and more common than we think.

Yes Fitz’ marriage was a mess before he met Olivia, which begs the question, why he didn’t divorce Mellie a long time ago. Scandal is for smart people. It is not for people who can’t see the complexity of the characters. I was not surprised Fitz went back to his wife when Liv chose her GLADS over him or that Liv draws the line at murder. Fitz is weak and seems to always need a woman to run to or from. Once Liv found out about Verna, Fitz had lost her. This is consistent with all we know about Liv’s line in the sand.

I very much agree with you because some of these people sound insane. To be honest, I do not agree with adultery, and yes ,Fitz should have divorced Mellie a long, long, long time ago. But Mellie is his fall back woman. Like the old saying a man know where’s home at.

I don beieolivia agrees with murder butvshe is not devastated by it either taking her staff throuh everything she took them through for defnance, it is not te riht time to leave them. In addition olivia wil never be wih jake romantically again becausecof his connection with fitz. Also jake has been made a regulaer for other reason. How dd he know about the cia directors killing because billy chambers said he did it. Something else is going on ith olivias father and jake regarding. This whols thing. I think they are trying to bring fitz down. Season 3 should be real interesting. Also how many fake cytron cards did david. Make?

Save Jake and fast. Can’t wait to see what happens next with him. I hope season 3 returns with a focus on fixing and less on Olitz. So tired of the merry-go-round. Also, their mutual smugness with everyone about their affair during the last couple of episodes of Season 2 was nauseating and a big turnoff. Nothing sexy there.
