Mellie Has the Perfect Attitude for 'Scandal'
Grey’s Anatomy on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Everyone on this show has been a garbage person lately, so I’m going to console myself by remembering that somewhere Cristina Yang is sitting around in a Swiss chalet drinking excellent wine and summoning her beautiful Swedish boy toy for a hot tub session before she plans out her next groundbreaking surgery. She is secretly grateful that her new home has exceptionally poor cell phone and internet reception, which means she doesn’t have to hear about Meredith’s bonus sister and all the dark and twisty feelings associated with that until she really wants to. She refreshes her wine, and turns on the hot tub jets.
Scandal on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Am I alone in hoping that Abby and Mellie become besties and just shit-talk Fitz and Olivia together for, like, half the season? That’d be great.

How To Get Away With Murder on ABC at 10:00pm ET. I love how on all of the shows in this block on ABC, we’re supposed to believe our main characters are completely brilliant and absolutely the best at their jobs. Except major plot points revolve around them being completely unprofessional, getting duped by others, making huge mistakes they have to fix, or otherwise being generally AWFUL at their jobs. While I appreciate the necessity of weekly plot lines, it’d be a little easier to buy if they didn’t open by overselling the whole “She’s the BEST” at the outset.

Genevieve Burgess finds it very calming to imagine Cristina’s new, fabulous Swiss life.
