Scandal Episode 15 — Fitz v. Mellie Epic Showdown

It what can only be describe as poetic, Tony Goldwyn and Bellamy young executed the best scene in the history of ABC’s Scandal. Upon discovering that Mellie is having an affair with his Vice Presidential candidate, the President confronted his wife for having pushed him away and ruining their marriage. According to Fitz, Mellie sank the sexual nature of their relationship after their first child was born because she was “not a sexual person anymore,” which now proves untrue. The resulting argument is epic. For the first time, it’s revealed why Fitz strayed with Olivia Pope, and both characters become instantly humanized. While I won’t use praise to pounce on another, I think actors everywhere can take lessons from the beautiful light and shade of this scene. Watch below.
