Scandal Recap: Lena Dunham Goes Fifty Shades of Grey ... and Someone Gets Murdered

Originally posted 03/19/2015 11:25PM

Lena Dunham's Scandal debut started out as a Fifty Shades of Grey situation that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) needed to fix.

And just when it looked like her character might be getting a Sex and the City ending, Huck (Guillermo Díaz) gave her a fate more suited for Law and Order: SVU.

Thursday's episode was all about feminist issues: the line between owning your sexuality and being abused, the scrutiny a successful woman is subjected to versus a man. Though the Girls creator met a tragic end, our heroine rediscovered her erotic power with – surprise! – a man besides Jake (Scott Foley) or Fitz (Tony Goldwyn).

That's right, Gladiators: Liv is officially a dominant.

When Ellen DeGeneres came out as gay 17 years ago, the unexpected professional backlash and personal isolation that followed was a rude awakening.

"I thought everyone knew me and I didn't think that one little adjective was going to define me," DeGeneres, 56, exclusively tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. "I didn't have perspective for a while."

But these days, with a hugely successful daily talk show, best-selling books and an upcoming gig as the host of the 86th Annual Academy Awards on March 2, that painful rough patch is a distant, if surreal, memory.

"Now I look at it as a movie that I saw that someone went through," she says, "and I only experience the amazing life that I have right now."
