  • @Rumbera28  NOOO not Team Jake!! lol Im not crazed about Olitz, but Jake doesnt have enough "swag" for me. I need there to be a new character as her love interest. Im not happy with any of them so far. Especially not Edison aka "Mr would you like a pudding pop" lol

    I'm totally Team Jake.  I think Fitz is kind of a putz, and anyone who married Millie is an idiot.

    Although I do kind of love-to-hate Millie - and I love the new plot twist they just introduced with her!
    Yes I want to see how Millies new story is going to run. That should be very interesting. Something is bound to happen between her and Andrew.

  • I was dieing to read this thread last week but I hadn't watched Scandal yet and afraid I would read a plot spoiler.  I finally watched it, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jake!  He is so freaking adorable!  I'm very confused/concerned about what is going on with Quinn.  I like the way the characters were pre- Huck & Quinn weird blow up thing.
    Ba hahahaha!

    This is the first Shonda Rhimes show that I've watched... but from what I've been told, she often 'kills off' characters by totally changing their natures.   She's done this with at least 6 people on the show so far... I don't like *that* much change.   I'm still hooked on the show though!
    I dont think its that drastic. I can see a few changes in characters here and there, but the only one that really was a BIG change is Quinn. Everything else to me has made for good twists. The twists that makes Scandal so... Scandaliscious. lol

  • I think my issue behind Jake is (what I have deemed as) bad acting? He just seems so stiff and not just not a fit for the show. No other leading guy on the show is that dry. They all have personality and charisma. IDK I like Olitz... I dont care about TV affairs, its supposed to be juicy and I dont take it any further than that in terms of personal beliefs. JMO

    I'm a scandal fan too! I didn't look at this discussion until now because I needed to catch up on the last episode on DVR and just in case there were spoilers!

    My opinion on Fitz is the affair doesn't bother me for whatever reason, but he is so freaking controlling!!! And he takes so much advantage of his position of power (I mean in terms if how he is with Olivia). Basically I see him as an abuser! My DH is so used to me going on rants about men like that (he watches scandal with me) so now he points it out too every time he does something that is so inappropriate, LOL! As for Jake, I just feel meh about him.

    @calindi I totally agree with you about Huck/Quinn!! Ugh. That made me sooooo mad!!

    Me: 32  DH: 33  Married: March 2004

    July 2006: started TTC
    2008: HSG (normal), couple rounds of clomid through gyno

    2008 - 2010: dragging my feet out of fear and procrastination
    October 2010: first consultation with RE, dx PCOS and fibroids (DH slightly low count/motility)
    Oct. 2010 - Dec. 2012:  In DENIAL! avoided the issue because I was scared of surgery
    January 2013: returned to RE, fibroids grew significantly
    February 2013: second HSG, fibroids pushed on tubes which blocked them somewhat
    March 2013: MRI to determine what type of surgery may be necessary
    July 29, 2013: fibroids (5) removed via robotic laparascopy
    August 2013 - Nov 2013 : benched due to recent surgery

    IUI #1, Dec. 24, 2013, BFN 
    IUI #2, Jan. 25, 2014, BFN
    IUI #3, Feb. 25, 2014  BFN
    IUI #4 canceled due to lack of response to letrozole
    IUI #4.1 April 28, 2014, BFN
    May 16, 2014: wtf consult, start prepping for IVF in June and add injects for one last IUI in the meantime
    IUI #5 started letrozole and bravelle but canceled after HSG led to new diagnosis
    May 21, 2014: third HSG, tubes blocked, one at the beginning, one hydrosalpinx??
    June 11, 2014: consult, approved to move on to IVF because the hydro is not completely blocked therefore allowing fluid to move through slowly rather than backwards
    IVF #1 August 8, 2014 - 3dt of 2 embryos, BFN
    September 17, 2014 - 4th HSG, the right tube is very patent (open!!) dye went straight through this time. Weird!
    October 2, 2014 - started metformin treatment
    November 14, 2014 - blood work, brought A1C down from 5.8 to 5.5
    November 26, 2014 - RE finally back from vaca and reviewed my chart, no more IVFs for rest of calendar year
    December 1, 2014 - Right after Thanksgiving, I called a new clinic and got in right away! Plan for IVF
    December 17, 2014 - ER! 29 retrieved (!!), 16 mature, all 16 fertilized (ICSI)
    IVF #2 December 20, 2014 - 3dt of 3 embryos, BFN

    We are done with treatment unsuccessfully. :(

     Jake is a total military guy, and reminds me quite a bit of my DH.  They're stiff, for sure, but my guy at least (and Jake seems to be) incredibly sweet and loyal.  I don't think it's bad acting, I think he's playing the role perfectly!

    The whole Huck/Quinn thing is interesting... I can actually see where Quinn's transition started (back when her FI was killed and she had to go through some pretty f'ed up shit for awhile), but the one part that seemed rather drastic was *****spoiler alert*****  Huck torturing Quinn.  I can't quite reconcile that, and it feels wrong.  And even when Quinn confronted him, he wouldn't apologize.  I mean, it's not that freaking hard for her to explain how she was tricked into it and then blackmailed, which seems like something Huck would be able to understand and forgive (since she wouldn't have been a traitor, which is his big argument - clearly killing people isn't a serious offense for him).
    I agree!  It makes me feel like maybe something big is going to happen and she is only pretending with Charlie.  I mean why else wouldn't she have just told Huck the truth like you said. 
    Ba hahahaha!

  • I thought the Millie storyline was good too... And also that she had someone who took care of her after what her FIL did since her husband was too self absorbed to realize anything was seriously wrong!!
