‘Scandal’ Finale: Olivia Says Goodbye To Fitz In Preview
A major Olitz moment goes down over the phone on the May 14 finale, and it looks like these two are headed for more heartbreak.
“I just wanted to say hello and good luck with Mellie’s election,” Olivia says to Fitz in the clip. Unfortunately, Fitz can’t see Olivia’s face, so he doesn’t know that Olivia is about to break down into tears.
Olivia tells Fitz how proud she is of his Brandon Bill. “That is the man I voted for,” she continues. (Someone hold me, please.)
After he says his thanks, Olivia leaves him with, “Goodbye, Fitz.”
What?! That’s it?! Olivia don’t go! I’m pretty upset she didn’t utter those important three words, but Olivia’s a busy gal. I forgive her. No matter what has transpired over the season, hope for Olivia and Fitz has remained. This phone call proves it.
P.S. You know it’s an Olitz moment when “that” song starts playing. Yeah, Gladiators. You know which one I’m talking about.
Olivia and her merry band of Gladiators are attempting to take down Olivia’s dad once and for all in the finale. However, knowing Scandal, everything is about to blow up in their faces. Quite possibly literally.
“The structure of everything explodes,” Darby Stanchfield told Variety.
Even Kerry is shocked at what happened in the finale, and she was the one filming the scenes! “This finale episode, I mean, I just… I turned to Shonda [Rhimes]. I was like, ‘Where do we go from here? Are you for real? Now what?’ It’s crazy,” Kerry said at the show’s Directors Guild of America panel.
