Character Analysis: Jake Ballard (Scandal)

Hi folks, I don't know if any of you still watch the show or not, but as it comes to close I have to see it to the end. Alright, without giving too much away...so Cyrus is not the big threat that everyone was worried about, but it appears to be Jake! See, I knew for sometime now that Jake wasn't some guy that you could trust. Since the first time Jake Ballard came on the screen, he was portrayed as the Jacob to Fitz's Edward (sorry about the Twilight reference). When things with Fitz was on the rocks, Olivia would turn to Jake in her moment of need. But somewhere down the road, Jake appeared to be something far scarier. We remembered when he was first hired by Fitz to watch Liv after the truth about Defiance came out. But Papa Pope also had Jake get close to her. So, it is kind of unclear who actually is to blame for Jake becoming into Olivia's life. (I actually blame Papa Pope because Jake was following Rowan's orders.) He has spied on her, broke into Liv'…

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…

#30DaysShippingChallenge: Day 1: What is your current favorite ship?

Hi guys, I am doing a 30 Day Shipping Challenge. This is my first time doing a challenge, so I really don’t know what to expect. So, I am in a Fanfiction group on Facebook and, today is its first challenge. Day 1: What is your current favorite ship? I have sooo many, but I just recently binge watch the three seasons of Jane the Virgin on
Netflix and I must admit that I rather enjoyed it. I won’t go too much into the show, but my favorite coupling is Rane (Jane and Rafael). The reason why I love these two together so much...(I am sorry to the Jane and Michael fans, but this is my opinion.) they come from different worlds. Rafe, the spoiled rich guy and Jane the honest woman who stands by her faith. They couldn’t be more opposite for each other, but when Jane becomes pregnant with Mateo and things just get more out of control for the two, you come to realize that despite growing up in completely different worlds, rich vs poor. That these two are really good together. Rafael changes…

Goodbye, Mr. Moore...Gone But, Never Forgotten

I learned today that my favorite 'Bond,' Sir Roger Moore has passed away after a brief bout with cancer. I am crushed beyond words. Even as I write this now, I have a lump in my throat and trying to choke back the tears. I remember when I was a little girl, my father had some of the James Bond movies on VHS. I remember right before a 007 movie would come on, there was a featurette of the Pink Panther cartoon. Then, the first Bond I remember was Roger Moore. I think even at that young age, I had a bit of a crush because he was so charming and charismatic. Which at the time I thought that was how my favorite spy was supposed to be. Even as I got older and allowed myself to get caught up in the "Connery vs. Moore: Who was the better James Bond?" arguments, I always stood firm of the belief that Roger was the better one, despite the fact that Sean Connery was the first. I didn't care and still don't. Roger was and is my favorite to play the character aside from…
