  1. Great show. Didn't like that only Jake was the only one punished for all the bad things.

  2. Just a hunch, but I bet she’s not sporting that Gucci belt anymore. 🤷🏽‍♀️


    Oh yeah she has either fired them or killed them


  4. Thank you for posting this. Shonda is simply brilliant and amazing. Love her description of herself retreating into her brain and writing inside that space. Creative process, very cool.

  5. Shonda in Rihanna's home? Is she will be in the first Netflix show produced by Shondaland?
