“Scandal” Explosion!

Scandal Season 3

After watching the latest episodes of this season, things are heating up quickly and there could be some surprises at the end! Will Sally Langston die when the bomb goes off in the church? Will Olivia’s father, Rowan, be rushed to the hospital in time, after Maya, Olivia’s mother, shot him?  Who will go after Maya after she shot Rowan and made plans to bomb the church where the President was going to be? With only one episode left of season three, Scandal has us all wondering what will happen next! After the surprising murder of James Novak a few episodes back, viewers do not know if they should expect another death in the season finale, but it is definitely possible. I could not believe that the Scandal writers killed off James. He had a lot going for him. He had a child, a good job and a husband. But, James kept digging up information about the defiance conspiracy and in the end, he was used to cover up the truth behind the murder of Sally Langston’s husband. James’s murder was passed off to look like a carjacking that went terribly wrong.

During the last episode I was glued to my TV, while I also adamantly checked Twitter to see what others think will happen. Many viewers thought that Mellie’s secret was going to be revealed, but it leaves us thinking that it will be exposed in the season finale. Who is really Jerry’s biological father? The latest episode left us with many cliffhangers and there are several possible outcomes for the finale. What will happen next? As Maya activated the bomb in the last moments of the episode, one or even several characters could die in the finale. Here is a look at some of these characters and potential scenarios.


Sally Langston

Sally is at the church where the bomb is located. Jake informed Cyrus about the location of the bomb, but Cyrus decided not to tell anyone. This makes us all think that during the finale the bomb will go off and Fitz’s competition, Sally, could be killed. Leo Bergen, Sally’s campaign consultant, is also seen standing next to Sally at the church. Will Leo die? We also have to consider all of the people at the church attending the senator’s funeral. If the church is not evacuated, many innocent lives will be lost.


Andrew Nichols

Andrew is also inside the church with Sally Langston. Mellie and Andrew have kept their distance ever since Andrew decided that he would rather be a vice president than Mellie’s lover. What will Mellie do if she finds out that Cyrus knew about the bomb? Will Andrew get out in time, or will Mellie be left alone with no man to love her? If Andrew does get out in time, it is possible that he may reconsider his values and end up rekindling his love for Mellie.


Rowan Pope

After being shot by Olivia’s mother, Rowan is seen gasping for air in the latest episode. In the season finale preview, he is bleeding out and is rushed to the hospital. Will he survive? Viewers were also left wondering what Maya has planned next. Can Olivia Pope use her Gladiator team to find Maya?


Mellie Grant

A few episodes back, Mellie was shown remembering how Fitz’s father took advantage of her. Mellie is not sure who the biological father of her son is. We thought that Mellie was going to break down and tell Olivia about it, but she kept quiet and is waiting until the paternity test results come back. Will Mellie’s secret be revealed? Is Jerry’s biological father Fitz, Andrew or Fitz’s father?


Cyrus Beene

After Cyrus learned about the location of the bomb, he decided not to tell anyone about it. How will Cyrus live with himself knowing that he could have stopped the church from exploding? Is this his personal revenge after James was killed?


Harrison Wright

Harrison found out where Maya planned to execute her bomb plans and he was greeted by Adnan Saliff. Will Harrison be able to talk to Adnan and convince her to stop the explosion? Or, will Adnan kill Harrison?


Huck and Quinn

Huck and Quinn, or should I say #HuckleberryQuinn, had a steamy hook up on the latest episode. Will they continue their steamy romance, or will Charlie find out and punish Quinn? Viewers are wondering if Quinn will ever be a Gladiator again, after she became part of B-613 and works for Charlie. Maybe Huck will bring her back to her Gladiator family.


The Election

In the middle of all this drama, President Fitz is still trying to win the election. If Sally Langston dies, will the election continue? Maybe Fitz will finally be able to win an election without it being rigged. Or, will Olivia’s complications with Maya and Cyrus’s secret ruin Fitz’s chances of winning fair and square? Olivia is very determined she will do just about anything to make sure that Fitz is reelected for a second term.

Fitz and Olivia

Scandal’s season finale airs TONIGHT at 10/9 p.m. cst, on ABC. Make sure to tune in and see this explosive ending, so all (or most) of our questions can be answered!

Oscars 2014 Best Dressed

It was the year of the metallic and pastels gowns, but no matter the color the confidence and talent that took the red carpet was enough to stun us all.

Not only were there a wide array of hair and makeup at this year’s Oscars, but the styling was very diverse as well. The off-the-runway trends paired with everything from gold to silver jewelry and flowing to structure hairstyles had us on our toes the entire time. Here are some of our favorites from the runway that shared their confidence as well as style on the red carpet.


This has been the year of Lupita Nyong’o. She seems to have taken the cake at every award show this season and the Oscars were no exception. Gracing the red carpet in a flowing powder blue gown custom made by Prada, Lupita accessorized with a beautiful headband and a confidence that was radiant to all.


Her third Oscar nomination and Jennifer Lawrence has yet to fail us on the red carpet. Simplicity and uniqueness come to mind when complimenting her style. Wearing a stunning Dior gown and her trendsetting backwards necklace, Lawrence strikes an elegant pose.


Chrissy Teigen took the red carpet in a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 gown. In a strapless and elegantly styled black gown with pink printed flowers, she took the carpet looking chic and effortless and landed among our best dressed. John Legend as her arm candy didn’t hurt either.


Kate Hudson looked flawless as she took the red carpet in a stunning Atelier Versace gown. The caped number accompanied by her subtle silver jewelry and matching clutch was the perfect way to make a statement at this year’s Oscars. As a present, Kate’s gorgeous hair and subtle yet stunning makeup looked amazing all throughout the night.


To no surprise, Kerry Washington took home one of our favorite looks of the night. Sporting a gorgeous mauve Jason Wu gown accompanied by a perfectly paired shoe and diamond bangles, she had everything pulled together perfectly. Add to that a plum lipstick and windswept hair and you’ve got yourself the recipe for a perfect red carpet look.


Camilla Alves kept the pastel trend alive in her gorgeous Versace gown. With a pale pink and a clutch to match, what really put her over the top was her amazing hair and makeup. Styled in a naked lip that matched her soft gown, Camilla looked flawless as she joined Matthew McConaughey on the red carpet.


Sandra Bullock brought a timeless and classic look to the red carpet as she flaunted her elegant and flawless style. Going against this year’s trends in a standout navy Alexander McQueen gown, Sandra paired her stunning gown with unique Lorraine Schwartz diamond jewelry for a perfect and show-stopping look.

Django Unchained


Django has created quite the buzz, some people loving it, while others refusing to see it due to its “insensitivity” to the horror of slavery and excessive use of the “N – word.” No matter where you fall on this discussion, one thing’s for sure, Django is not your average depiction of slavery. Unlike epic movies including Amistad and Roots, Django shows the brutish side of slavery utilizing humor and satire in true Quentin fashion. A romance story at its core, the movie is the tale of boundless love in which the hero, Django, travels through the dangerous racial landscape of the Antebellum South in order to save his wife. In this movie, true to history, the legal precedence of the time considers their marriage illegitimate.
Directed by Quentin Tarantino, this all-star cast made the story come to life. Here’s an introduction to its characters:


I am that one (man) in 10,000

Django: Jamie Foxx brings Django to life as the swagged out, courageous, top gun. He is first introduced to the audience as a slave being herded across the southwest in chains, but he quickly stands out. We witness his growth as he learns the “slave game” of getting what one wants at all costs. The bravado, intelligence, and edge this character embodies helps us to relate to him, revere him, notice his flaws, and hope for his victory.


Don’t get carried away with your retribution that you loose site of what you’re here for.

Dr. King Schultz: This witty, comical, and smart bounty hunter, played by Christoph Waltz, takes Django under his wing to make him the best gunman in the south. Dr. Schultz is accustomed to taking justice into his own hands while getting paid, outsmarting his peers; and laughing while doing it.


I think you’re a bad looser…I think you’re an abysmal winner.

Calvin Candie: Leonardo DiCaprio delivers a fearfully outstanding and believable performance as a brutal, money hungry, slaveowner who runs one of the most notorious plantations in the south. Candie sees dollar signs above everything, including human life. With each dollar he makes, he further boosts his ego. It’s his love for money, lack of dignty and respect for human life, and pride that ultimately leads to his demise. 


This is candy land, you can’t destroy us, it’s been here and we gon’ always be here.

Stephen: Samuel L. Jackson’s portrayal of the Uncle Tom was so real that everyone hates him! He is mean spirited and brainwashed. While his outspoken and boisterous ways brings the audience to laughter, it places him on the wrong side of justice.


It’s me baby.

Broomhilda: The lovely Kerry Washington plays the resilient, educated, beauty who is Django’s beloved wife. Django travels high and low to save her from captivity. Their love story is endearing as the two bravely take a stand to love freely. Her character represents a breathtaking, courageous, strong woman who actively resists slavery through her defiance. We would have loved to see her character more 🙂
Interesting scenes from the movie:
Look at them run…Cowards tend to do that.
The scene where the KKK gathers on the mountain top immediately evokes dread, fear, and sadness given the legacy of their destructive and malicious acts. However, in Django Unchained, this scene has a twist as it takes the brutality and hatred of the white sheets and makes a complete mockery of it.
Hey, little trouble maker…Hey big trouble maker.
Reunited and it feels so good. Django and Broomhilda’s cute, regal love leads them to ride away with the brutal slave plantation in defeat and complete destruction. You can’t help but to love this couple. Bonnie and Clyde have nothing on them!
This film is unlike any past depictions of slavery we have seen, and has mostly received rave reviews. There has been some opposition due to some people viewing it as a distasteful and insensitive comedy of such a tragic time in history.
