Scandal Mellie For President

-Jasmine Grant

What’s given season 4 of Scandal a much-needed edge is its spot-on reflection of real life American democracy. First lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) has been dragged through a whirlwind of BS since her husband (Tony Goldwyn) was elected president. In spite of Fitz’s constant betrayal, she’s kept a level head — convinced that a political future of her own would one day make living in the shadows of Olivia Pope worth it. Read more…

Did Scandal’s Ferguson-Inspired Episode Have Too Happy of an Ending?

6. When are Mellie and Claire Underwood starting a support group?
Scandal Mellie VP

When Mellie said, “But you promised!” to Fitz about their VP arrangement, all I could do is picture Hillary Clinton pointing and laughing at her. Yes, in the end he stood by her, but how long will that last?

7. So is Fitz for real with his new VP?
Wasn’t this woman elected like four episodes ago? Thicker Sarah Palin is gonna end the world once Fitz gets shot again. Or watch she be secretly some evil genius.

8. How much did we hate that police officer?
Scandal Police Officer

Was he supposed to be diet Darren Wilson? I assume so. Either way, I was waiting for Smithers to release the hounds after he went into that diatribe about Black on Black crime, personal responsibility, and blah-blah-blah after Olivia and co. confronted him about him not only murdering an unarmed teen, but planting a knife on him.

9. Did you enjoy the ending?
Scandal Clarence President

In reality, no way would a Black man who grabbed his shotgun to seize control of the crime scene involving his son be allowed to walk away from all of that with not only no arrest, but the opportunity to both meet and cry on the president’s shoulder. But, I feel like we needed to see this lie this week. It’s a fantasy, but it’s great that we were allowed to see a place where Black lives, grief, and anger matter.

10. Will this episode earn the cast and crew Emmys?
I’ll let y’all decide that one.

According to TMZ, Harrison Ford was involved in a plane crash in Venice, Calif. earlier today that left him seriously injured.

However, there have been conflicting reports on his well-being.

Here’s what we know so far: local L.A. news station KTLA reported that a small plane, identified as a Ryan PT-22 Recruit, crash-landed at Penmar Golf Course at approximately 2:55 PST, and its adult male pilot, approximately 70 years old, was rushed to the hospital.

KTLA has since updated their report, and noted that a fire official has stated that the injured occupant was in fair to moderate condition. “Two doctors were there, and they had a 1st aid box with them. He was conscious, talking a little– a HUGE cut on his head,” a witness told TMZ. The Indiana Jones star has been involved in a crash-landing before. In 1999, he, along with his instructor, ran a helicopter into a riverbed Santa Clarita, Calif.

UPDATE 4:51 P.M. PST

TMZ published alleged audio of Ford reporting engine failure. Listen below.

According to NBC4, a family member of Ford’s confirmed the actor’s involvement, stating that he’s fine and only suffered minor injuries.

UPDATE 3/6/2015

Ford’s son took to Twitter to update fans on his dad’s condition.
