    Liv Realizes Lois & Rose Were More than Friends

    Liv is shaken when Rose, a friend of her now deceased neighbor, stops by looking for Lois. She puts Quinn and Huck on the case to find Lois’s body. As she learns more about Rose and Lois, Liv realizes there was more to their relationship. Watch this poignant scene from Scandal Season 4, Episode 15: The Testimony of Diego Munoz featuring guest star Marla Gibbs.

    Rose (Gibbs) offers another lead — the serial number on Lois’s replacement. Olivia figures out that Rose and Lois were more than friends. They’d fallen in love as teenagers, but were separated when Lois’s parents found out. “It was hard enough being black, let alone black and gay,” Rose tells Olivia. It was only after Lois’s husband died that they were reunited, with Rose moving to be close to Lois. She had a key to her apartment, but would’t move in because they disagreed on where to keep the temperature on the thermostat.

    When Liv tells Rose that she needs time to find out what happened to Lois, Rose tells her: “I’ve waited over 40 years for my Lois, Ms. Pope. Believe me I can wait a bit longer.”


    Gibbs is in her 80s and is still adding to her resume

    Yeah.....I keep asking myself with so few black actors/celebrities to begin with, why is there so much gay and or cross dressing black men on TV and in the spotlight?
    Are they sending a message to our community??:thinking:

    Not sure what is considered a "black show" anymore... but probably the two I mentioned in the other thread, and then one called Black'ish (couldn't keep watching, not sure why).

    Thinking of more...

    Nicole Beharie sold me on her acting when she was in Sins of the Mother.
    Never could get into the plots though, not sure how long it will last.
