“What happens now?”

“Whatever we want.”

Well, a whole lot of craziness went down in the Season 4 finale that I’m still trying to process. Let’s do a little recap, shall we? Mellie got herself into a big ole mess with Damascus aka Eli Pope aka Rowen, which ended up securing her Senate seat, but at what cost? She inadvertently killed the entire B613 jury just by handing out a list of names. And who killed all those people? Huck did and Quinn was the only one to figure it out, mostly because they’re both obsessed with killing people and she recognized his moves. She basically puts a gun to his head saying she should kill him. He wants her to. Sadly we had to wait all summer to find out what happened.

Meanwhile, Fitz finds out about Mellie’s little secret and ends up kicking her out of the house…the White House that is. Not like that’s really going to make a difference. Except now he can live happily ever after with Liz in Vermont. Oh, and let’s not forget about Fitz firing Cyrus. I mean….good lord! That should have been done years ago, but he’s good, I mean, bad, but great!

Anywho, will we find Liv and Fitz just “snuggling” in a bed in their Vermont home? The trailer definitely leads us to believe that is the case.

I’m so excited to see how Shonda will handle all the drama this season. I’m headed over to buy a bunch of red wine. This will be me tonight.
