Natalea, I did not see her shove the officer either. Not even close. And even if she had, the attack with the baton still wouldn’t have made any sense to me. ‘How is this real? Who are these people?’ Well, it’s real, and we’re going to see how others are still willing to side with the police, and/or defend them.

Megan, ‘I highly doubt this is the first time that student has done something like that.’ Something like what? What did the student do? The student who was beaten went up to the officer and tried to pull her off of another child.
I know what you mean about police officers in schools, but watching this particular video, I honestly do not understand how you could suggest that any of the children were at fault.

Lexie, but the whole time Ian is acting like he’s trying to GET info from her—as if he doesn’t know exactly who she is, and who she’s connected to. That’s why I thought he wasn’t connected to the VP & crew. But maybe that was part of his act, so Liv doesn’t know who she’s dealing with? Much to ponder…

Stephanie, ‘I thought last night’s episode was Shonda acknowledging the complaints that Olivia’s whole life recently has been about these two men and not about herself anymore.’—yup. A lot of other people have written recent episodes of the show, but Shonda handled this one, and I think she wanted to set this new tone.

ella, I love this theory too! Whatever it is, I’m very curious to find out who Ian is connected to.
And yes to your dream idea too. The fact that this episode did, mostly, consist of just Liv gives me high hopes for the season.

Paul, the last time I went to church the message wasn’t “if you have sex before marriage, make sure you and your child are cared for.” It was far more strict than that. It was more like “Sex before marriage is a sin. If you make the mistake and sin, ask for forgiveness and try not to do that again.” So when I say “combat” I mean that any movement that seeks to get young, unmarried people to use contraceptive is working against institutions that are telling young people something very different from “just protect yourselves.”
Personally, I don’t take issue with the message of waiting for sex until marriage. However, I can see how that message is very different from the ‘protect yourself’ movement.

Meagan, thank you! Not sure how that happened.

So glad you saw it, Trent! I also loved Oyelowo’s performance and thought he was snubbed. But I can also see how others might not agree. I think that’s partly to due with the fact that the film isn’t solely focused on King—so many smaller characters play a big role (something I loved about it) so maybe that was a factor? Anyway, yes. Amazing film I hope everyone sees.

cutitout321, ‘it works to open doors to provide a bigger variety of opportunities to actors that are amazing but are shut out in the bottom-line obsessed film industry’—yeah, I hadn’t thought of it that way. And now it’s interesting to see people from movies heading back to TV for more work.

C. Guest, I’m just seeing this comment. Thank you, I’d honestly never really thought about the origin of the phrase, but I will now.
