Fitz to Mellie: “I don’t feel anything.”
Thoughts: This is a poignant moment between Scandal’s First Couple* - Fitz and Mellie after Fitz yelled at her with the following:
No one elected you! You’re not the president! You don’t way in on foreign policy! Your opinion doesn’t matter! You are the first lady. You’re job is to plant gardens and decorate rooms and let them blog about your clothes. You’re ornamental, not functional. So, don’t come into the oval and try to use your brain because no one cares.
All I had to say about this shutdown by Fitz was…
To which Mellie utter back with tears in her eyes…
"You always know how to hurt me. I understand that you miss her but to take it out on me, really."
Fitz quickly apologizes and Mellie says she felt their unborn son kick.
When Fitz goes to touch her baby, he says, “I don’t feel anything.”
Mellie’s eyes popped wide open when he points this out.
And I’m just like…
What if Mellie isn’t actually pregnant???!
I think this WILL be the real scandal for the Mellie/Fitz/Olivia story arc.
Mellie always did know how to play the game! Score 1 for Mellie on this. Double Angst for Fitz.
*Oh yes I know Olivia & Fitz is Scandal’s First Couple!! :P
