{March 4, 2014}   Scandal: Ride, Sally, Ride

Despite the constant Twitter reminders and countdowns, I completely spaced on the fact that there was a brand new Scandal released.

And to top it all off, I wasn’t very psyched to watch it because one of my besties said that it was boring and that she fell asleep watching it.

Yeah, she must have really been sleepy because it was good.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch the latest tv series episodes on Hulu.com or find them on abc online episodes.

Meanwhile….

<<< SPOILER ALERTS >>>

So much happened on Scandals latest episode.

That heifer Sally decided to continue her run for President against Fitz even though she killed her husband at the end of last season.

How’d she get away with that, you ask?

One word: Cyrus.

Need I say more.

I never really trust “Super” Christians.

She has herself convinced that “the devil made her do it”.

Oh, no, boo-boo, the devil may have whispered it in your ear but the act of killing was all you.

And did I mention that she is running against Fitz while still maintaining her position and power as the Vice-POTUS.

And Kerry Washington’s character, Olivia… yeah, her Dear Ol’ Dad pretty much declared war on her if she stays with the President.

“…and the greatest weapon I could use against him calls me ‘dad’.”

Can you get any clearer (or menacing) than that?

Speaking of the President…I still cannot express to you enough how much I actively dislike him.

Seriously, he threw his glass at Cyrus.

And picking a running mate that was “loyal” to him…yeah, right.

He picked a carbon copied, selfish playboy mirror image of himself.

The one thing Sally got right was calling him out on being a man-child.

Taking the reigns that Fitz has once again dropped in his self-destructive pursuit of Olivia, my girl Mellie once again pushed her pride aside and sat down with a public meal with her once best friend Olivia.

I admire how Mellie keeps it all together even though we know in her heart of hearts she really just wants to shank a bitch. LMFAO.

She point blank tells Olivia that she has to get herself a beau because she has screwed up by well, screwing her hubby.

Speaking of screwing, Cyrus’ husband is hell bent on screwing him over.

I, for one, saw that coming when Cyrus threatened to take the baby if he ever leaves him.

Now he is working with David to bring down pretty much the whole team.

Speaking of working against, our Baby Huck Quinn is slipping further and further down the rabbit hole working hard to earn a place in B16.

But despite what others say, I think she’s just trying to earn Olivia’s trust back by going where the others dare not go.

There was so much going on in this episode that I am probably going to have watch it again before this week’s.

Let me know if I missed any salient points.

Scandal on!

I must say that I have fallen woefully behind on my Upper East Side shenanigans

Gossip Girl Season 4

.

But since subscribing to Netflix, I have been womanfully attempting to catch up.

Starting with Season 1, Episode 1, I am now up caught up to Blair’s engagement to the Prince of Monocco.

Since I never watch regaular television any more,  I wasn’t even aware that this was to be the last season of Gossip Girl.

So, I was completely blindsided when my friend Jeanette let the beans spill that the series finale revealed that Gossip Girl is…

….wait for it…..

….total spoiler alert here…..

Dan Humphrey

DAN HUMPHREY!!

Frankly, I knew it had to be one of the main characters of the show although I didn’t really rule out anyone.

I figured that when it was finally revealed, the writers would have to ignore any and all inconsistencies and plot holes.

What I didn’t like was that Lily and Rufus did not end up together.

And even worse, I hated that Lily ended up with William Van Der Woosen.

Yuck!

But I guess that I will have to get caught up to see what happened there.

Reading comments though, I giggled when one reader suggested that Rufus changes to suit the woman that he is with, which is totally true!

And Lily never really respected him as a man because, like her daughter and Blair, she is actually attracted to men who treat her just a wee bit bad…I mean, um, present a challenge to their strong personalities (yeah, right!).

Other (obvious) spoilers:

Blair and Chuck get married. It was very anticlimactic and I absolutely hated Blair’s dress (I hardly ever liked the clothes they wore on the show anyway.) They have a son but I guess I have to get caught up to find out what happened to Blair and Louie’s baby?!?!

BTW, those two park Blair/Chuck know-it-alls have a vital role in the marriage but where are Blair’s minions??

Georgina’s so-called scheme was lame and was just a rounding up of all of the usual suspects. Yawn.

Flash forward five years and we see Dan and Serena tying the knot (I hated her dress too.) but I would have loved to see how they finally made it to the alter.

Apparently Blair does get a career in fashion (I have no idea what Serena ends up doing).

Lil Jenny Humphry makes a brief appearance with a designer purse that reads J by Waldorf so…..

But she doesn’t get any lines. Lol.

Ivy writes a tell all about duping the rich for their money. I need to get caught up there. I just got to the point where she is being blackmailed by her ex for $500,000.

Let’s see…who’s left…

Oh, yeah, Nate…he ends up running a very successful magazine and they hint that he may be running for Mayor. No girl for him, apparently. They should have put him back with Vanessa…power couple to take on Chuck and Blair. Lol.

Oh, and why wasn’t Scott at the wedding?!?!

My favorite (really, the only part that moved me besides being angry at Lily) was the cameo “I thought is was Dorota” moments from real life celebrities. My fav being the voice of Gossip Girl herself, Veronica Mars alum: Kristen Bell.

No clue the significane of the Rachel chick but I actually squeeled to see Ronnie. Lol. And that wink…too cute….

And, of course, they had to send Gossp Girl to bed with a warning that since there will always be an outsider with a need to be “in”, there will always be a “Gossip Girl”.
