Last night Scandal fans saw one of Poppa Pope's assassins stab Jake Ballard in the gut a handful of times and leave him bleeding out on the floor of Olivia's empty office. The moment had deep irony, because Olivia's father is very good at fixing her up with bad boys; she's currently sleeping with the guy who killed Jake -- maybe.
Her mother died with unfinished business, lots, in many areas. In Forgiveness Chiquis is seeing to it that in many areas she's setting the record straight and putting and end to things past to move on to things future.
Living in a society where we spend most of our time staring at a screen, be it smartphone, iPad, laptop or television, having a show that reflects on modern society, like Scandal, is especially important.
Scandal episodes are filled with characters who practically burst forth in arias of rage or need or envy (last night Mellie let fly). This was a soft, solemn elegy -- and deeply moving, because who doesn't want what Michael does?
Jay Quint is the author of the controversial book "Tides of Vanity." This just released memoir will have Anderson Cooper answering questions, instead of asking them! As you can imagine there is quite a buzz around the Gayborhood about this book, so I had to ask Jay "15 Questions."
The motor mouth who has to blurt out all his feelings before he's even fully felt them or understood them just wants to sit. He doesn't want to talk. And he asks Ritchie to cut his hair.

In the past two years, some of our nation's most influential movies and television shows have dealt with racism and bias. This has all been accompanied by a drumbeat crescendo of news and analysis that goes beyond specific incidents to examine the roots of these issues and the trends that reinforce them.
The fear that a love story featuring two Black actors is not engaging, believable or desirable is very real, and one that still defines the mindset of many studio executives, casting agents and producers.
The ongoing and seemingly widening scandal plaguing Petrobras is beginning to cause fissures in Brazil's political system. New evidence suggests that the ruling political party may have been much more involved than once thought.
The sketch looks at what policing might be like in the not-too-distant future, and more importantly, what we want it to be. Police body cameras are an important part of that, but just as essential is the way that the footage is used and interpreted.
I make my living creating, enhancing and protecting brand reputations. That said, the ability of politicians and celebrities to reinvent themselves and make successful comebacks to public life never ceases to amaze me.
Pope's impeccable problem solving skills, assertiveness and unapologetic demeanor are traits that attribute to her success as a fixer. However, these qualities are typically not viewed positively when displayed by women. Yet, she is revered by those around her.
There is no place for unchecked celebrity in journalism. And there is no place for loyalty in the face of scandal, either. Brian Williams has been an anchor at NBC since 2004. And after 10 years on the job, it took just a second for his career to crumble like the Berlin Wall.
