Olivia finally made her choice between Fitz and Jake on the Nov. 20 winter finale of ‘Scandal’, but it wasn’t what I expected at all. Her decision is only going to cause more problems and drama. Geez, Olivia.
Sorry, Olivia, but you’re not going to be able to dance your way out of this one. The ultimate fixer tried to fix her love life by choosing between Fitz and Jake on the Scandal winter finale, but I don’t think she made the right decision at all. I love Liv, but something has to give in this never-ending love triangle/square.
Olivia, Fitz & Jake Love Triangle On ‘Scandal’
I’m just going to warn you now: I’m an Olitz supporter all the way.
So, when Olivia made her choice between Fitz and Jake, I was not pleased.
No, just no. You can’t have your cake and eat it too, Olivia. I get that she’s choosing “herself,” but I feel like that was a selfish way to go about it.
This was the only way she could keep both men in her life without breaking their hearts.
We all know that Olivia will choose Fitz in the end, even Jake has acknowledged that. “We both know in the end, you won’t choose me,” Jake said in a previous episode. Yep, there it is.
Yes, Fitz is still a married man, but we all know he would ultimately leave Mellie if Olivia really wanted him to. Over the course of four seasons, it’s clear that Olivia doesn’t believe that. She constantly keeps Fitz at arm’s lengths not because he’s married, but because she’s terrified that he’ll break her heart.
We really haven’t had much Olitz action in the first nine episodes, which upsets me. I don’t hate Olake scenes, but Olivia and Fitz have one major hurdle to get passed — the fact Olivia left him when he needed her most.
Olivia needs to choose between Fitz and Jake, or dump them both.
For me, Olivia and Fitz are endgame and there’s just no other way around it. I love ya, Jake, but it’s about time we spiced things up in this love triangle. If we need a new lady to capture Jake’s attention, let’s keep it in the Shondaland universe and cast Chyler Leigh (aka Lexie Grey!)
HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Are you glad Olivia chose herself, or do you think she have made a definitive choice between Fitz and Jake? Let me know!
