You are wrong all the characters in this soup are evil.. That’s why I loved. And Jake is not any better than Fitz.

It is Scandal. Why would we want to look at it if they aren’t together?

I love this article because it comes closest to how I feel about this supposed undying love that Olivia and Fitz are supposed to have.

I agree with everything said here but I have much more to say about this unholy union. This man is always disrespecting Olivia. Remember past episodes he takes her and has sex with her whenever he felt like it. Up against a tree, in the whitehouse electrical closet, etc. Remember how cruel he was when he found out she was apart of the election rigging? I hate when that music comes on and I know they are getting ready to do the nasty., I hope he goes crazy wanting her, I hope Mellie runs for office while he is in the luney bin and I hope they find out about his murderous past. And yes, I would love to see Jake with Liv. He’s got issues but he doesn’t use her the way Fitz does.

Okay I disagree with you 100%. I can’t believe that there is more and more people thinking that Jake is the better guy. He will forever be the second choice, the next best thing, the guy that you will settle for, etc. I can go on and on. Jake has done horrible things as well. He belongs to B613 and probably murdered people. He has hurt Olivia by going behind her back. As some of the people that also commented on this article said Fitz and Liv has made this show in what it is today. People started watching this show because of their chemistry, the affair that brings the hot and steamy moments between the two, the fact that they want to be together, but can’t because different situations pull them apart. The fact that you said Fitz is a sociopath, really? I believe a sociopath doesn’t just kill once, they in fact they keep doing it. If you really think about it Fitz killed Verna because she was going to tell David the truth. The truth would of incriminated Olivia, so one might think that he was protecting her. I do not understand why people think Fitz is a monster. He cheated on his wife yes that is horrible! But really we all watch the show because of it. Because it is a Scandal. Fitz has hurt Olivia in the past, but he also tried his hardest to choose Liv. To give up his position and be with her. She is the one that pushed him back to Mellie. Well I have many reasons why Fitz and Liv should stay together, but I will stop with just this. P.S I would hate it if Jake and Olivia

This article was a wonderful read and fills my heart with joy and relief that there are more and more people who are coming to see the Olitz “relationship” for what it truly is: a toxic, destructive, and disgusting affair between an abusive and manipulative man and a very emotionally damaged young woman. For the life of me, I can’t understand why Fitz is so popular and has many people rooting for him to be with Olivia, when he treats her like his personal concubine whose only duty is to spread her legs whenever he wants and follow his every command and their “relationship” has not only caused Olivia so much pain, it also has robbed her of her sense of self worth and dignity. Then again, I guess they (his fans and the Olitz fans who think there is nothing dysfunctional about him and Olivia together) ate up his crocodile tears and long and dramatic monologues about his “everlasting love” for Olivia, instead of realizing that many abusers would use the same methods to keep their spouses/partners from leaving.

i personally hate fitz and don’t understand why anyone even likes the guy but everyone saying that cuz the author disagrees with the majority that means the person isn’t watching the show is dumb. And the person who wrote the author is pathetic is ridiculous. Fitz and Oliva should not be together if for no other reason than Fitz is always hurting her and he is incredibly selfish. Always summoning her despite Liv making it clear she doesn’t want to see him.

I not going to read this article. The title is enough to make to wonder if the person wrote the article has any idea what made the show the hit it was. I mean just that was because this season is losing many of its gladiators. Wrap all this other stuff they are showing this season find some way to show a happy Fitz and Liv moments. Their story is why I own and re-watch seasons 1 and 2. As of now I do not plan to buy season 3. This is not what I waited all summer to see.

Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn/Olivia/Fitz help create this beautiful love story for network television and it has succeeded with a hit for Shondaland and ABC. Why on earth would anyone want to totally break this couple apart, this is television, not real life. It’s funny how I never read any articles regarding any other t.v. programs that had similar storylines for women. As I recall when I was a girl, the great Luke and Laura love story on General Hospital generated from Luke raping Laura, however, their love became epic within the genre of soap operas.
Also, let’s not forget Carrie on “Sex and the City,” she was dumped by “Mr. Big,” cheated on her dreamy boyfriend with a married Mr. Big, and left at the alter by the same man, but in the end she married him anyway. I find it very annoying how certain people in the media entertainment do not want to see this couple together within a fictious storyline. It would be a disaster for any network to change the dynamics of a show that is very popular with a huge fanbase.
The most powerful man in the world is in love with Olivia Pope and that’s the allure. Jake doesn’t have any power, he’s nice and handsome, but that doesn’t make good t.v. J.R. Ewing became popular based on being a great villian. So please stop dreaming, Shonda and Crew know what they are doing, just sit back and enjoy the ride (the Olitz ride).

Thank you, so so tired of people reading into fiction, bah! Every d*mn thing needs to be some learning moment to “stupid” women. Us women will get ourselves into these situations by thinking that men treating us like this is love!! every woman out there who is mistreated has been watching Scandal and Twilight (lol). Yes, we all wind up cheating with president B.O and M.O would accept it, just she can have power. I find these articles so insulting, as if women do not know the difference between fiction and reality. Self esteem and boundaries come from tv shows like these. The lack of self esteem comes from some parents doing a horrendous job raising their daughters and sons. So stop analyzing dumb things.

I am sick to death of people talking about Fitz being a murderer! Let’s not forget, he killed a murderer and attempted murderer in that supreme court justice. The judge killed the press secretary and nearly succeeded in killing Fitz. To make matters worse she disclosed that she was going to destroy him after the election rigging that he had absolutely nothing to do with. The witch had days left to live and decided to take others down.

OLITZ RULES!!

Nah the show is about Olivia and fitz not Olivia and jake . Oh he can stay but without Olivia and fitz there is no show . The show would have to end . The reason scandal is good is because of the wonderful chemistry they have together. They don’t need to be together right away but I am hoping there is more to this story than him killing Olivia’s mom.

Without Fitz, there is NO show. Scandal would go down in flames w/o TG and KW together. So the writers better set this ship in a direction that embraces Olitz if they want to continue having a show.

you are so pitiful .. I can’t even begin to describe how ignorant you are, do you really watch the show ? either you accept it or not Olivia and Fitz will never be over, Shonda said it a month ago, and they are in love, you can’t change that … and please before saying something like sociopath search okay ? ask some sociologue .. don’t just call someone a sociopath without knowing what it means.
and oh Jake is innocent because he was following orders ? boohoohoo .. abusing a woman and putting her on a hospital after giving her a concusion and making a sex tape without her knowing is normal for you ? I’m sad if this is your life .. abused women around the world wouldn’t like to here that.
and please we all know Olitz fans are 90% of the viewers, so just stop right there .. they are the reason this show became a HIT .. Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn are two masterful actors who have one of the greatest chemistry on TV and talentless Scott Foley can’t compete with this, sorry not sorry

First, after pulling out the dictionary version of the word sociopath and and then affirming that he doesn’t meet all the criteria for the word, you still chose to call him that. He has a conscience, evidenced by the fact that of his drinking problem after killing Verna, and what other murder was there? He also didn’t know that Liv was asking about her mother, he just thought it was a B613/national security issue that she was digging into. He obviously can’t tell her otherwise he would. Olivia also lets things slide when a client is guilty (Gov Reston and wife of the pervy senator being a murderer), unlike what you said. Jake is the easier, safer option but not the better one for her. One, he crossed the line with his orders from the President to talk/meet Liv (although he had conflicting orders from B613). His mission was to sleep with her, in a scuffle with her where she ended up in the hospital and then told her to lie about what happened. Or how about that type he beat that guy to a bloody pulp because he took a picture of them? Every character of Scandal is shady and a mixture of good and evil. But the one that Liv really wants is Fitz, shown by her jumping to the trash to answer her phone. Plus, they just understand each other.

Y’all need to let go of this Jake character. Him and Olivia walking into the sunset ain’t happening. His character is going to be this season’s scapegoat.

Jake’s going to stab her in the back. He’s an obvious plant. And he’s killing the ratings of a show I enjoyed.
