Scandal Recap!! I wasn’t sure how Shonda Rhimes going to play the situation with who would be President but I should have known she would find a way. It turns out that the shooter was none other bad guy ex-Secret Service Agent Tom Larsen, former lover of Cyrus Beene and a crazy man who is jealous that Cyrus has moved on without him. Cyrus needed to close the door with Tom before moving on, he holds too many secrets.
It seems that after Cyrus was added to the Frankie Vargas ticket, he believed that Frankie was having an affair with Jennifer Fields some girl he met on the campaign trail and he was not going to allow this girl to come between him and Frankie winning the Presidency. Cyrus asked Tom to intimidate this girl in order to get her off the campaign trail and away from Frankie.
Tom, being the psycho that he is, didn’t just threaten this girl, he beat the mess out of her. Frankie and Cyrus were both horrified to see her damaged face, which causes Cyrus to reveal to Frankie that he was behind it. He insists that he didn’t intend for it to go that far but who intends for any situation to go that far and this was a situation that didn’t need happen. Cyrus saw his future at becoming the President slipping away and he wasn’t going to allow anyone to take that from him.
That’s the scene from the videotape Huck found last week where Frankie is yelling at Cyrus for what he did to Jennifer and he’s going to put him in prison for what he did. That videotape shows how desperate Cyrus was and what he would do to become the President.
Cyrus realizes what an actual psycho he has on his hands with Tom, he wants to make it perfectly clear that Tom should not harm Frankie in any way. He doesn’t think “weak, normal” Frankie Vargas is the man to run the country, but “strong, extraordinary” Cyrus is. I can’t see Cyrus running the country, he is too much of a weak a$$ cowardly snake, he hurts people without being in the same room.
Tom apparently shot Frankie Vargas anyway, that’s the flashback information. In present day, Tom is threatening Cyrus because he feels like Cyrus used him and abandoned him which he did. “I will not be IGNORED, CYRUS.”
But instead of killing Cyrus, Tom has something better in mind. He confesses to the murder of Francisco Vargas, but says he was just following Cyrus’ orders and Cyrus has now landed in federal prison. You better believe Tom has proof, Cyrus so worried about other sh$t when he should have been worried about Tom.
It means the electoral college will most likely vote Mellie into the presidency but obviously, Olivia had to prove with her hard work, Cyrus orchestrated the murder of Frankie Vargas.
It was an incredibly compelling episode, for a few different reasons. First off, Olivia, Fitz, Mellie and basically the whole gang took a backseat to Cyrus.
We’re pleasantly surprised to see the Frankie Vargas mystery wrapped up so quickly. We thought for sure it was going to drag out forever and while it still may be a few episodes before anyone actually takes the oath of office, it’s pretty solid pacing to have the mystery solved in three episodes.
Black Panther’s Michael B Jordan & Lupita Nyongo
Black Panther the movie was great, an all black movie with all black characters was amazing too see. The actors and actresses really stepped up and did their thing. I was thoroughly impressed with this movie as well as the entire cast.
The movie is definitely breaking all box offices all over the world and other countries as well, we shouldn’t have expected any less but what’s more juicier than the movie? Its the tea behind the scenes that has the fans, viewers, staff and other celebrities talking about the chemistry between Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyongo.
Talented and handsome Michael B. Jordan and the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o may be allegedly creeping on the low low and if they are, please reveal yourselves, we love to see another beautiful black couple making waves in the movie industry together. Both are talented actors and actresses, they are lovely too look at together, we see a match made in heaven.
The two have have actually been doing some devilish flirting on social media and keeping close to each other while making public appearances. The way they look at each other is not from one cast mate to another, its like I want you now from the both of them. It’s so cute though and you know we are suckers for love.
The flirting began on Monday when Lupita shared a video of her storming into Michael’s dressing room at The View and wanting him to do a push up. According to reliable sources close to the actress this wasn’t the first time she had shared a video of Michael, the two made a bet on the set of the Black Panther, and Lupita won the bet, her prize was to command Michael to perform ‘on call pushups’ anytime she wanted. Well, he does work out, look at his biceps, she should have thought of a different type of exercise but it’s still cute.
Monday Michael replied to her video with a now deleted tweet that read: ‘Bring them chocolate cakes back. You ready for round 2?’
Lupita then replied: ‘No dessert until you come correct, @michaelb4jordan! ‘#youknowyouwantthis #youaintready.’
Let’s get it on ya’ll!! They would make a delicious couple, hopefully something does come out of them making the movie a success as well as a romance. Black Panther was phenomenal.
Cardi B At The Grammy’s
Break out reality star Cardi B is ready for the Grammy’s!! Whatever, she puts her hands on, its a hit, she’s got the magic touch and this is her year!
The former stripper and reality star was asked what was she most looking forward to at the Grammy’s? Cardi answered, “Me, hopefully winning an award. Like what else? Like that’s all I think about to be honest.” Sounds just like a Cardi B answer to me, she holds nothing back, we love her no nonsense style, her craziness and her ability to just be real. She is also excited for her man’s group Migo’s who are also nominated.
Cardi B and Bruno Mars are expected to perform there breakout song, “Finesse,” tonight on the Grammy’s! I so love this song, it takes you back to the 90’s on the “In Living Color,” stage with her and Bruno Mars. What I love most about this song, Cardi is having so much fun, the smile on her face says it all and the connection she has with Bruno in this song is amazing, they both deserve to win!!
