Father knows best. In Olivias case, Father knows EVERYTHING.
Rowan played by Joe Morton surfaced towards the end of the season barking demands and pulling strings all over Washington. He has everybody who is anybody in that town in his back pocket. He’s the boss of the assassins G16. He orders Cyrus around and knows about everything that is going on with Fitz and his daughter Olivia. He seems to be running something. What is he running? What else does he know? Where does he come from?
I have my own answers to those questions. I will address them later. Lets talk about Joe Morton the actor who plays Rowan.
Joe Morton has been acting for over 40 yrs and has stared in a vast array of movies and television shows. He stared as Hal Marshall on the hit show “Sanford and Son” and played the same character on the spinoff called “Grady”. I had no idea Grady had a spinoff. Good Googly Moogly…lol He went on to play the Brother (Alien) from the cult classic “The Brother from Another Planet” He was also Dr. Miles Bennett Dyson from “Terminator 2: Judgement Day”. I could go on and on with a list of characters that Joe Morton has played. Its a long list. However one character stands out to me and provides me with great background when it comes to my imagination and the origins of Rowan.
Senator Byron Douglas III from a Different World is Joe Morton’s most memorable character in my opinion. Check out one of my all time favorite moments in television.
After watching this I think I know exactly where Rowan came from. Rowan formerly known as Byron (BYRAAAAAAAAN) for all my Tyler Perry fans, HA!..Anyway…After Byron gets left at the alter he is too embarrassed to be seen and he leaves town changes his name and becomes a spy for the CIA. As a result of his exemplary work during the Gulf War, the Monica Lewinsky scandal with President Clinton, The East Coast West Coast beef and Affirmative Action he was promoted to head up the super duper top secret G16.
He started hearing stories about his daughter in the streets and knew it was time to put the hammer down..then….BOOM he is in the limo with his daughter and they are going to have a heart to heart.
Well.. thats what I think happened…lol. Im sure Shonda Rhimes has her own thoughts.
Im looking forward to see what Rowan and Olivia are going to discuss. Are you?
