Last time you got in a huff over a Fitz and Mellie interview, you ended up having some nasty, pasty-ass sex with a B-cup breasted mofo who pushed your ass down into some broken glass, gave you a concussion and dropped you off at the hospital like an old rag doll.
Think about your choices girl. Think hard.
The reason both Olivia and Mellie said that Fitz was a stranger to them is because he damn well is - and it’s partially both of their own doing.
By Olivia continuing to push Fitz away and Mellie continuing to cling to him like kudzu, Fitz is basically stuck not being able to be genuine to anyone because he’s not living his live authentically.
Now ultimately that is his own doing, he’s a big boy, he can always leave and face the consequences. However, he ain’t stupid - if Olivia is really going to be shaky about being with him, then why give up his presidency for her when she may not be with him anyway? I know I wouldn’t, but that’s just me. I don’t take odds like that either.
If Fitz was no longer in office, I think he would leave Mellie so fast there would be smoke were he stood and just go after Olivia with guns blazing to make her trust him and their relationship and let the rest of the chips fall where they may. But until then, unless Olivia puts all the cards on the table and they BOTH are completely honest with each other, they both are going to continue to be walking messes of hot bacon fat. Mellie as well because as long as she has any hope that Fitz will stay with her, even if it’s only due to lack of other options, she will be stunted as well and they all will be drooling, crying, drinking fools until the end of his presidency.
Pray for the Scandalverse USA because they are in for some hell if this goes on for 4 more years.
