An Open Letter to Scandal’s Harrison Wright

Dear Harrison,

Week in and week out I tune in and see you, looking like the personification of Justin Timberlake’s Suit & Tie, pensive, mouth turned down. Every week you are caught up in some new circle of hell that Olivia Pope drags you into and it is seems that *you* are always the fall man when ish gets real. The buck stops here.

I see you go to the ends of the Earth for her, all because she looked out when you almost went down for insider trading. So? Olivia Pope’s a dirty dealer and still gets to run around DC without even sweating out her sew-in. What’s more messed up is that even when you reverse engineered her shenanigans, she still didn’t trust you enough to tell you what’s really going on. You had to ask her what she needed. Twice. You would never have to do that with me. I’m just sayin’.

I have questions, Harrison. How come, as fine as you are, with a razor sharp shape up that would put even Steve Harvey’s old lacefront to shame, you are never the center of someone’s love story? A man like you in a city like DC should never have a hard time finding someone to keep you warm in the cold winter months. I’m sure you’ve been to every exclusive lounge or club in the city, and I’m also sure that you could have your pick of any of the lawyers/marketing directors/government employees at the bar. Everyone else in Olivia’s crew has someone keeping the home fires burning – Cyrus has James, boring Quinn had a boo before he got killed, and hell, even creepy-A$$ Huck had an assassin-lover for a hot second. So then why isn’t your heart allowed to flourish? It just doesn’t make sense.

Why don’t you ever go against her, Harrison? She has you out here in the line of fire doing her petty work while she scampers off in her perfectly little wardrobe to sleaze it up with the President. Meanwhile, you sacrifice having a life.  What root has Olivia put on you that you can’t leave? What favor do you owe her? Did she help you convict the crew that got your brother killed in Stomp the Yard? Seriously it has to be something – is she a relative? Your baby’s mother? From what I can tell all she does is hog up the screen, trembling that lip and wiggling her eyebrows like a damn maniac.

If only you’d open your eyes then you’d see, Harrison, that I’m not the only girl out here that’s riding hard for you. There are probably hundreds, maybe thousands, of women like me, yearning to be Mrs. Wright pun intended. We want to see your chiseled face on screen more, speaking, getting the love you rightfully deserve. And you don’t have to worry about calling and figuring out where we are, or what we’re doing, because we’ll be with you every Thursday, 10 PM EST.

  • Let me guess the person writing this has natural hair. Hmm … Stop hating on sew in and lace fronts its just a hairstyle. You want to see KW in natural hair look at Save the last dance or any of her many other screen roles. If Steve H. like lace fronts its his business i just cant see him in locs. Love KW because she gives everyone their props. Beautiful and brilliant she doesnt have her nose stuck up in the air or up her a$$. I trust Shonda to do her job. Harrison’s time will come if she is holding his story back there is a reason. Columbus Short was the first actor she hired before she even hired KW. She shakes up the same ole fomula of love story and happily ever after, I love her artistry because just like in real life anything goes. I rather see a scripted show with a mulitlayered intresting charater with class who dresses well like OP than some reality ratchetness i refuse to watch. So all you Harrison fans & Im one too. Keep Calm & Kerry ON!!

    • Divine and Extraordinaire…haha…besides whats wrong with wiggly eyebrows

      PS…like the KERRY ON!!

  • Yvette

    Shonda Rhimes was asked in an interview why everyone else’s story has been told except for Harrison’s. She said she is purposely waiting to reveal his whole story and that it will all come full circle. Can’t wait to see it all unfold!

    • I was just about to say that!

  • kelseydr

    Every week I am waiting for him to have a steamy scene with some woman… Thank you!

  • I think Scandal has jaded my view of the characters on the show, I wouldn’t be surprised if Harrison was up to something at this point. Everyone is suspicious to me as of now.

  • I agree with this. He is too fine not to have a love story.I love “looking like the personification of JT’s ‘Suit and Tie.'” Interracial women dating?? Black women looking for white men??? Black women loving white men???_______blackwhiteplanet.c0m_______is the #1 black women white men dating site. No one night stand. serious relationship

  • Just Jade

    omg I thought I was the only one getting frustrated that my boo thang wasn’t getting the same type of camera time that Ms.Olivia was. Not that I don’t love her, I just thing she needs to take some time to ummm… go cope somewhere…far off… for an episode or three and let Harrison take hold of things for a min. I’m just saying…

  • Rene

    This made me chuckle…..He is so fine. My husband thinks I love his character because he has Liv’s back…hehe….No, I love his whole swag…the entire package…and every second he is on screen, he has me in the palm of his hand…LMBO….I don’t know how I feel about him having a boo on the show, but I guess everyone deserves to be happy (sigh, looking slightly dejected) I just don’t know if I wanna watch all that……LMBO (low key: I think he’s in love with Liv anyway, that boy nose wide open)

    • Annette

      I’ve never thought of that. Maybe he is in love with Olivia.

  • Shannon

    I couldn’t have said it better. I have often wondered who keeps him warm at night.

  • Annette

    I love “looking like the personification of JT’s ‘Suit and Tie.'”

  • IllyPhilly

    Love it!

  • Annette

    I agree with this. He is too fine not to have a love story.

    • Anon

      And if they do have one…he will either be gay, or the chick will be of a ‘select’ persuasion. We won’t see him rubbing up on a Viola Davis or an Alek Wek looking chick.

      • Damn good point!

        • CarlaKah

          hope Shonda gives Harrison the dark chocolate lady we don’t expect

          • Mel

            If you have watched ms Rhimes ‘ other shows, you know that would be a departure for her. She does not make a black couple endgame. Ever.

            • CarlaKah

              well that is not true. Grey’s anatomy has shown us two
