Scandal: Jake, the villain
IMO, Jake would make an excellent villain. He’s already hated. So I would prefer Jake replace Rowan as the new B6-13 Commander. And let’s see Jake and Fitz in the occasional power struggle. See, I would love to watch that. I love a good villain.
But where the show keeps mucking up is trying to make him the hero-type. It’s never gonna work. Well, not for me. Because I will never forget how Jake “fell in love” with Liv. He put cameras in her bedroom, and by watching her all the time… he started developing feels.
Now, for me, that’s some sick, perverted sh*t. Forget you, Jake. And how could Liv ever forgive him for that? SMDH. -Redorkulous
I was reading one of your responses and the comment you made about how they are making it seem like they are positioning Jake to be 2nd in command for OPA really popped out to me. I noticed that too in that sneak peek, which made me roll my eyes to the back of my head. But I think it's due to how they write Jake to be pretty cocky. It's as if he thinks that because he has the backing of Huck and Olivia is going along with all of this, that he's somehow usurped Harrison's position.
First off, you have a beautiful avatar. Now, back to Scandal… I love the fact that you said “usurped” because I was feeling the same way. If anybody should be runnin OPA, it should be Harrison. Seriously, how many times are they castrate that brotha, reducing his sphere of influence and responsibility? He’s damn near an “extra” when he’s supposed to be replacing Stephen Finch.
That said, I do think Jake would be a great replacement for Rowan (because sooner or later, they’re gonna kill off Rowan). Plus, it would give the show another layer of drama. Imagine. Jake Ballard in a position where doesn’t answer to the President, vying for Olivia’s affection. Yeah, I’d watch that. But they need to kick his voyeuristic azz OUT of those hallowed halls of OPA. For me, that office is sacred. -Redorkulous
What I find funny is If it was Fitz who put his hands on Maya like Jake and Huck did they would be crying about how it's abuse and Fitz is a monster what I don't find fair that Jake can do anything and get away with it because he is not married however if Fitz puts his tie on wrong they wanna hang him in the square If Fitz had put Olivia in the hospital lord knows what they would have done to him I'm just so over the double standard on this show.
Anon, I’mma have to agree. Then again, I’ve always been biased towards Fitz, and I’ve made no attempt to hide it. And I still don’t know why people wanna say Liv is being “abused” by Fitz, or she stays with Olitz out of fear?
IMO, Olivia’s wearing the pants with Olitz. JMO. And IF my man, Fitz, was really abusive… He woulda slapped Mellie across the Oval a long time ago. But he never has. Even when he was always “lubricated.” He never raised a hand to anybody. And we all know that Fitz hates his marriage.
Again, that’s JMO. -Redorkulous
Do you think that Huck is the one who's responsible for Quinn outburst? I'm really mad with Huck and most people are with Quinn but I don't blame her that much. Both of her boyfriends were killed and she had to change her life when it wasn't her fault. Liv tried to help and Huck was the one showing her his super spy stuff and she got curious. He should have been looking out for her instead of abandoning her after the drill session. #BadHuck IMO. I eventually blame this on Jake cuz I can! Lol
Hi, Kikinickmc. I agree. When things don’t make sense, blame Jake. It’s a real time-saver. HA! Just kidding. But on the real, I don’t understand what’s prompting all the shade towards Huck? No lie. I really don’t. Yes, he choked out Liv. That was foul. But I’m not gonna condemn the guy for one temporary lapse in good judgment. For me, Huck’s “pluses” still outweigh his “minuses”.
As for not blaming Quinn. Nah… I can not support that. At the end of the day, Quinn’s an adult. Quinn makes her own decisions. And Huck specifically told her, “Do NOT be like me.” What’s more, IF there’s a co-worker huddled up in corner muttering “seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-fifty-two, seven-…”
Plus, Huck went to AA meetings, and was scared to bathe when it rained. So why does Quinn even need to ask questions? Psh, if I saw what Quinn saw… I would treat B6-13 the same way I treat VooDoo. I don’t know sh*t about it. But I know enough not to ever f**k with it. But that’s JMO. Thanks for the message! -Redorkulous
To: 1Shara, Re: “Terrorists”
1Shara Said: What do you mean by terrorists, do you recognize that a lot of these so called “terrorists” are actually freedom fighters…
From Redorkulous: I understand your point, 1Shara, and I do agree with making that distinction when it’s necessary, because South Africa called Nelson Mandella a “terrorist.” However. I didn’t think it was necessary to make that distinction in this circumstance, nor would I ever compare true Freedom Fighters, who seek equality and justice with whatever fictional organization put a bomb on a civilian commercial flight with the intent of blowing up London, that wonderful city with so many Bars and Pubs.
Fact, I lived outside of London for years. My first love was a British girl. Kelly Jane Veronica Johnston. Once, I took her to Paris over the weekend. N-E-waze… I will never support any terrorist organization, real or fictional, who tries to blow up London, killing millions of innocent civilians and possibly inciting World War III. And, No, I’m not gonna debate this with others.
Middle-finger to anybody who tries to blow up London. To me, that’s terrorist activity that would never be confused with other guerrilla warfare tactics from true Freedom Fighters. And that’s just how I feel about it. -Redorkulous
I think I know reason why Jake is still around he is there to divided OPA Quinn has gone bat shit crazy Abby and Harrison are just kinda standing in the background wait for shit to start making sense and Jake and Huck are just shady and Olivia has no idea what to do next Jake is always in her face talking smack about Fitz and making her feel guilty about her love for him he should be grateful but maybe he wasn't in the hole so that's way he is such an ass to Fitz Jake needs to get a life QUICK
BWA-HA-HA! Your comments had me laughin, BlackRoseEsLove. I find no fault with your logic. And I did you see Jake in that Sneak Peek for the next episode, “YOLO”? It’s almost like their positioning him to be 2nd-in-command at OPA. God forbid.
My hope is that Mama Pope kills Rowan, which would save Fitz the trouble of going after Rowan, and then Jake kills Mama Pope. Then Olivia would hate Jake (almost as much as we do), and write him off the show. But that’s a pipe dream. N-E-Waze. Thnx for the message! -Redorkulous
To Hall70, we’re still catching up all the shows we missed. But I did wanna take a break and tell you that I see what you mean about the “former lives” on The Witches of East End. I’m almost caught up with the series. It’s highly addictive. -Redorkulous
To all of our fellow Oncers, we hope you enjoy an Enchanted Holiday Season, and live Happily Ever After. -WatchColorTV

#Scandal: What happened?
In the top screencap, we have OPA from the Pilot Episode. In the lower-left-hand corner, Huck from Season 2. And the lower-right-hand corner, Olivia Pope from the Sneak Peek for the next episode.
Truthfully, I almost wanna hold a Memorial Service, and grieve the loss of my two favorite characters. They’re gone forever, never to return. Just look at Liv in that top photo. Strong. Confident. Captain of the team. And then compare that with the “Sneak Peek” GIF. WTF?
And the new Gladiators don’t even know that Huck used be the sh*t. But to them, he’s just plain sh*t. SMDH. -Redorkulous
We’re dreaming of a Black Christmas. As in Black Ink Crew. It’s one of favorite reality shows, and we’re sending a “Happy Holiday” shout-out to the entire Black Ink fandom. -WatchColorTV
