Fitzgerald Thomas Grant lll is the BEST character on the show.
1) The writing for him is clear, concise and consistent. Everything about him makes sense.
2) He is THE Alpha male. Watching tonight’s episode I realised that there is something hard wired into me that goes WEAK in the presence of unflinching male strength Fitz has it in abundance.
3) Tony Goldwyn can f*cking ACT!!!!
I’m screwing her, you know. Your daughter. Every chance I get. The things I could tell you… about how she tastes.
Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III, Scandal 310
Watching this scene again it strikes me how similar it is to 213 when Fitz tells Liv “screwing your mistress is one thing” and 214, where he says “I may not be able to control my erections around you” or even 302, where he tells Sally he’s had Jeanine “Twelve ways to Sunday”. You can literally see him stop for a split second and adopt the a**hole persona, probably doing his best Big Jerry impression, before he starts saying the really offensive stuff.
This is not the real Fitz. The real Fitz we all saw in Vermont. This is a persona he adopts to deal with the cruel cruel world.
APPLAUSE .. this is exactly what it is
I am always here for Any Fitz. When I finally watched the episode I was like he had to raffle him a bit. Here for him.
