This is about to be quick and dirty because I don’t have a lot of time…
I am in “Scandal” OVERLOAD!!!! Last night’s episode was definitely a game changer! And after last week’s lackluster episode where I was completely underwhelmed, this episode MORE than made up for it. I’ll just share some quick highlights from last night.
– Cyrus Bean is a MONSTER! He is crazy and deranged. I knew he would have Charlie get James if need be, just so he could have his power. Dude, politics ain’t no joke… It’s crystal clear that Cyrus will do whatever it takes to keep himself comfortable and living the life he feels he deserves.
– That darn Verna. I totally didn’t see that one coming. It still doesn’t make sense to me why she would want Fitz to be dead. Having him killed does nothing. But maybe it’s as she told Olivia-she doesn’t have a conscience. And she was going to tell David Rosen EVERYTHING and leave their lives in shambles. Welp, I guess Fitz took care of that… (More on that in a minute.)
– I think Edison gets it now. Olivia does not want to be with him. It appears that I am in the minority about not wanting Edison and Olivia together, because a lot of people are upset that they are officially over. Now she is free and clear to open up and offer her heart to another, which is what I’ve wanted all along.
– What in all of the heck did Quinn think $5,000 was going to do??? (Do I really need to say more?) I am glad to see that Huck is developing a heart and convinced Quinn to do the right-especially when we ALL saw his eyes light up like a Christmas tree when Quinn said the word “kill”.
– Oh, Harrison, the loyal, dependable, ask-no-questions, gets-it-done Harrision. Shonda, girl, friend, homey, can Harrison PLEASE get a girl, a life, SOMETHING besides being at Pope & Associates all the time? Point blank-Columbus Short needs more screen time. I wasn’t sure how this was going to work, but I am thoroughly impressed with the actor he is becoming.
-Well, the President has become the Fixer… I thought something fishy was going on when Fitz opened the door and screamed, “She’s not breathing!” I was thinking, “What the heck happened in that room?” I guess Verna decided she was going to go out telling EVERYBODY’S business and leave them all to clean up a mess. Fitz did not let that happen. So, I’m not sure how I feel about him being a murderer, even though Verna tried to have him killed. Maybe it was revenge? I’m not sure, but Fitz has cemented his place in history and will not let his image be tarnished. Some people are wondering why he’s PISSED at Liv but is all Team Mellie now. It’s pretty simple-His marriage to Mellie was one of convenience and political gain. With Olivia, there was a relationship. He trusted her. And the fact that she agreed to rigging the election let him know that she did not have faith in him. That she didn’t trust that he could actually win the election. Most importantly, even though I’m sure it’s been said ad nauseum since last night, the husband does NOT leave his wife for his mistress.
I have to admit, I sat on my couch about 10 minutes after the show was over trying to digest everything I saw. Now that this series of unfortunate events has been wrapped up, it will be interesting to see what happens 10 months later on Thursday’s show. What do you guys think: Great show last night? Too much going on? So-so? Feel free to share! Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
