Fitz and Olivia are playing a weird game of chicken. Someone's got to blink first.

This felt hollow somehow. I was not happy with this ending, and I want a redo. Most of it was fantastic, but of all their season finales, this ending was certainly the weakest.

Neither half is satisfying on its own, and they make for a baffling whole, culminating in the show's worst-ever season finale.

I do appreciate Shonda and co. shaking things up a bit tonight, even if my fantasy boyfriend Jake's future in Olivia's life is uncertain.
