Olitz: Time’s up. It’s done…unless you don’t want me
I meant to post this after I did my Running Out The Clock: “Sit with me and watch me choose you. Watch me EARN you.” review(x) but I forgot so what time like the present but to give a small commentary on this scene.
I love this scene. It was the countdown portion of Fitz earning Olivia. There was not many words said(actually Fitz was the only one to have a line in this scene) but their faces & body language was enough.
The music selection though! You’re All I Need To Get By»» stop it!
This scene goes back & forth between Olitz & Mellie as the clock on the Grant marriage is coming to an end.
On the Olitz end we got this
Olivia like, “Is he serious? It seems legit but I am unsure…”
Fitz like, “Oh, I’m dead serious! You gone learn today bae…when I say, fuck this presidency, I mean that shit.”
On the Mellie end we got this
Mellie like, “If this shit don’t work…what am I gone do? How am I gone eat?”
Poor Mellie the Maid. She just doesn’t get it.
I love watching Olivia & Fitz running out the clock.
Olivia looks so unsure & a little scared but her love for Fitz allows her to sit there & wait it out with him. Her love allows for her to be open to the possibilities of them(even after all that they have been through). She is open but not stupid. She is unsure but she is still willing to wait this clock out with him for the hope of them.
Fitz looks so content. He doesn’t know for sure that Olivia is going to be ready to greet him with open arms after the clock is up but he doesn’t care. He made his choice. He chose to be with the woman that he loves. And I think that even with him not knowing what Olivia reaction would be, Fitz was happy that he had made a choice—a clear & obvious choice to be with Olivia.
Me watching them wait out the clock
At exactly 1:20, Mellie’s face cracked as she realized that Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III didn’t give nary fuck about their marriage. I have no clue why this was news to Mellie the Maid but for whatever reason, she didn’t get the memo.
I guess common sense ain’t so common.
After Mellie’s hopes & dreams were destroyed, we go back to Liv’s apartment. Fitz is sitting there with one foot resting on the table & he says, “Time’s up! It’s done…unless you don’t want me.”
Olivia, marry this damn man already!!!!!!
Can I just say real quick that I found it extremely sexy the way that Fitz was sitting? He was so at home & comfortable. This dude had one of his BIG ass feet resting on her table. You don’t just come in someone’s home & put your feet on their table unless you know damn well that is your home too.
Go ahead Fitz, continue…
I love the way that Fitz said, “Time’s up! It’s done…unless you don’t want me." because he was basically allowing Olivia to make the final decision because he already made his. He chose her—he EARNED her!
Olivia, girl, the ball is in your court, what you gone do?
GREAT, AMAZING, PHENOMENAL CHOICE OLIVIA!!!!!
When Olivia chose Fitz. I was like
YAASSS Olivia, get you some girl!!!!!
