If you can believe it, it’s the last week of my little countdown series here. Next week I’ll hopefully be reviewing the newest episode! I am really excited and also anxious, because as you know, I’m way too obsessed with this show and I just want it to be good!

Today’s topic is OTP – or one true pairing. According to the Urban Dictionary, this means your favorite combination of characters in a fandom. So we can say my fandom is Scandal is my OTP is Olitz – aka Olivia and Fitz.

In past shows I have enjoyed, there is usually a character I like more than others, and sometimes I prefer that character to be paired with another character – for example, on Lost I preferred Kate and Sawyer over Kate and Jack. I always wanted Meredith and Derek to be together on Grey’s Anatomy. On Private Practice, I really liked Pete and Violet, but I grew to like Pete and Addison too. Then Pete went back to Violet and that was okay too. However, in none of these cases did I feel like a couple was the be all and end all for the show, like I do with Olivia and Fitz. They so obviously belong together! Their chemistry together is one of the most talked about aspects of the show. ABC is trying to make it seem like there is a love triangle going on in which Olivia has to choose between Jake and Fitz. In my mind, she already chose. Seriously, just watch this video and tell me you can’t see it!

When you watch a show, do you tend to get invested in a certain character pairing, or do you love your show no matter what the writers do with the characters? Thanks to everyone for putting up with my obsession over these past few months!
