And I keep listening to this on repeat. It’s official. I’m buying it on iTunes right now.

I love this song. Jamie Lynn sounds great and as a fan of Country music, I think this is a fantastic song. Since I’m also a huge Britney song, this combines two of my favourite things haha. I hope it’ll be a success for her on the charts.

Between this and waiting for Revenge, I’m gonna be a mess the next two weeks.
We thought Papa COMMAND was scary? Mama Pope could have COMMAND in her name too. The sound, the image. Everything. I wanted to vomit. So disturbing and yet shows how much she still loves her daughter and is willing to go.
Contrast that with the scene where Olivia violently breaks the phone – scary is in her genetics after all.
I’m so over Fitz and Liv going back and forth and yet I couldn’t help but love the house in Vermont. And the sex… DAMN that was hot. Yet my heart ached for Jake in the end. And Mellie. So tired of Fitz treating her like a second class citizen.
Mellie and Cyrus scheming together? Always classic. And is it wrong that I don’t feel bad for Cyrus? He’s always pushing James to the limit, never expecting him to break. I’m VERY interested to see what is going to come of this.
I hope Lisa Kudrow appears again – I loved her in this role!
Shirtless Fitz AND Harrison? Yes please.
And torture instruments? Ohhhhh ish is gonna go down. Did you see the preview for the next episode? Quinn is all “please don’t” with duct tape on her mouth and Huck licking the side of her face. And Mama Pope with Liv? Oooh man.

Wow. This is so powerful. Thank you Trent for posting about it. I can’t wait to watch it.

@blaqfury, I’m with you there… anytime you’re Team Victoria, you can’t help but feel a bit shady!?
If I remember correctly, didn’t Lydia think she had seen Emily before (New Year’s Eve party photo) but Ems managed to change the photo so she wasn’t in it. I don’t remember her figuring out who she really was though.

I LOVED this episode. So much ish was going down. And I took notes while i was watching haha. And so these are my thoughts as they appeared in the episode (apologies for the novel that I am clearly writing)…
First: Shannon I totally thought of you when Daniel emerged from the shower… awkward much? I just thought “damn Daniel looks good and Shannon is gonna be drooling.”
“Everyone knows your mother prefers the company of men.” – Emily.
Sometimes I really despise Conrad. So he’s encouraging Daniel to cheat on his wife when he marries Emily?! What’s the point then. And the Grayson F—- Pad?! LOVE IT.
I thought it was interesting that earlier in the episode they reference to Lydia being dead again, as if to underline the fact that all the characters believe she is gone.
When Ems and Nolan were shopping for Daniel, all I could think is how beautiful Emily is.
“After all it isn’t the worst idea to get a taste of what’s to come.” – Victoria to Emily about Sarah (evil, plotting, soooo good)
I LOVE the bitchy comments between Victoria and Emily. So awesome. (“What a thoughtful gift. Someday I hope that I can repay you.”)
Sometimes I get so confused with this show… and with Scandal.
“Don’t brag after a shag; got it?” – Nolan
“Red is her favourite colour” – Nolan (I ALWAYS love red sharpie references!)
I also LOVE all the references that they are building up to Victoria ‘killing’ Emily
I really like Sarah but I HATE that she is coming between Emily and Daniel. I’m still a big shipper for them haha. …And Daniel is just like his father cheating on his fiancé. This unimpresses me so much.
I think a part of Emily is genuinely hurt by Daniel’s betrayal because as much as she pretends that it is just a part of her plan, I think that part of her really cares for Daniel.
And now I’m wondering: Is Daniel really cheating though or are they just making us think that? Much like with Margo a few weeks ago (side note: I am really into Jack & Margo… who also need a name. Jacago? Margack?)
Question of the day: How did Ems manage to get a sonogram picture?
LYDIA ISN’T DEAD?!?! WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?! What is with people returning from the dead on ABC shows? First Mama Pope, now Lydia.
The preview has me SO EXCITED for the next few episodes. Now we’re on a three week break and it is gonna kill me but what a way to end and build up to the wedding!

My jaw is on the floor. I just finished watching the past two episodes and while the Mama Pope thing was wickedly awesome (using a different name to take her off the plane was so confusing and so brilliant at the same time) and while Quinn’s B613 moment has me all in fear for her and for what Papa COMMAND will do to her, like Shannon, the moment I couldn’t believe was Mellie’s rape. I loved when we get flashbacks of the characters; it helps flesh them out and gives us a deeper understanding. Much like was commented above, it shows us how Fitz and Mellie’s relationship has this crack in it that can never be completely fixed. I still can’t believe that Jerry raped Mellie – makes me despise his character even more than I already did. And when she couldn’t get a shower afterwards? Ugh. My heart. But I did like that even though she has this total look of pain, she had Fitz wrapping his arm around her, almost protecting her in way.
This was one of the best episodes of Scandal ever. I. Can’t. Even.
PS: Cyrus’ wig. I died.
PPS: The B-story with Sally’s husband and the hooker not being his type. I have a feeling this leverage will be used to its full potential!
PPPS: I LOVED how this flashback episode pushed the present plot along and gave us and understanding of the characters/the past. Very very very well written.

I really like it. There’s just something about it that catches you after a few listens. I like it better than #beautiful simply because it’s a totally Mariah song. As much as I like her collabs sometimes, she needs to fly on her own, à là We Belong Together!

I wasn’t feeling Aiden at all in S2 but he’s doing something for me in S3. He’s not my favourite character but he is very pretty! Good choice Shannon haha!
PS: This week’s episode with Nolan’s take down was awesome.

Even having read this a couple of days ago, I’m still sooooo excited to see this tonight. ISH IS GOING DOWN. CANNOT WAIT!
