'Scandal': Olivia and Fitz are TV's most dysfunctional couple

"Scandal" has really, really gone all in on the star-crossed romance between President Fitzgerald Grant and his former campaign staffer/mistress Olivia Pope in recent episodes. They're so romantic, so destined, so ... toxic.Yes, toxic. Their feelings for each other are intense, yes, but lately it seems all Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) do for one another is bring out the other's worst qualities. Their relationship has tipped way over from the flawed-but-hot to downright creepy in the second half of this season.It's gotten to the point where Mellie (Bellamy Young), who's been painted as an ice queen/Lady Macbeth type from day one, is becoming the sympathetic one in this twisted triangle. We were actually kind of rooting for her to lay bare Fitz's affair with Olivia in Thursday's (May 2) episode.We've learned this season that Olivia was complicit, if not active, in rigging the voting machines that put Fitz in the White House....
