The Olivia and Fitz love story has to be one of the greatest sitcom love affairs since Carrie and Big from “Sex And The City.” It’s the story you really don’t want to cheer for. You’re totally mad that you even support this type of foolery (I mean, she is the side chick) but the love is so grand and you know wholeheartedly what it feels like to have lip quivers the moment he utters those three words you wish he would have never said out loud.
Because their love affair is epically wrong, I feel obligated to do my best friend duties and hook Olivia up with someone better. Preferably a Black man, although I am secretly rooting for Jake! Here’s my picks for who Olivia should dump Fitz for!
1. Idris Elba
There are very clear and obvious reasons why Idris is number one on my list. Mainly because he is just simply gorgeous! He should totally play a very uptight British politician who Olivia helps through a big sex scandal. Let’s imagine he has a habit that I personally would love to support him through!
2. Jay Ellis
A “Scandal” moment for this newcomer would be a huge upgrade. His new role on BET’s “The Game” doesn’t seem challenging enough for him. I vote we (Shonda and I) cast Jay as Harrison’s old buddy that Olivia falls for. There’s so much to build on this storyline since we don’t know much about Harrison at all. Perhaps the two did a stint in prison together and Harrison is indebted to Jay.
When we were first introduced to Olivia’s love interest, Edison, I was offended. Norm Lewis is probably a really great guy and an amazing actor–for someone else. Olivia’s new guy should be powerful, seasoned, and most importantly dark and delish. Blair embodies all of those characteristics and would serve as some much-needed competition for Fitz.
