How about a post where we just talk about the last episode of Scandal without all the detailed recaps? Because I have stuff that needs discussing. Like Leo Bergen. Am I the only one that thought we had seen the last of him? Suddenly now he has the hots for Abby and seems to have a soul? Is it just me or was that a left turn out of nowhere?
Finally, Cyrus catches a clue. The procedural case this week…. wait wrong Shonda show, the presidential crisis this week involves Angola. Cyrus leaked some false information to his paid lover (no judgment, can I put up a Paypal button for one of those of my own?) which he ran to Elizabeth with and then she took it to Mellie. Mellie is dying to experience world domination after her talks with Bitsy, so she didn’t hesitate to spout her opinions to the media. Now Cyrus thinks that Mellie is behind his setup sexual liaisons. Next week, a Cyrus versus Mellie smackdown?
Mellie is BACK. I’m not sure Cyrus is up for the challenge. Why does no one question Ellen DeGeneres’ wife ? How did she infiltrate so quickly anyway. It’s like one day she was just there and we all thought it was just fine. It’s not fine. Deal with her.
In other “that was just too easy” news… WTF is wrong with Huck’s mom? Her ex-husband and baby daddy the freaking serial killerish dude appears back in their life and she just let’s her kid roam the streets alone at night? Javi can pinpoint a location by IP? Nah, Shonda. It doesn’t really work that way. And even if it did, the offices of OPA are so open that a kid can wander in at night and sneak up on Huck? It’s like the writers are phoning it in this season.
Despite Abby holding everyone together while Olivia was busy standing in the sun, she certainly had a meltdown this episode. I suppose someone has to fill the crazy lady role now that Mellie has given up the fried chicken leg. Still she went from large and in charge to hiding behind a desk in a vomit soaked dress in very short order. And we then went back into rigging the election mode which only works when Shonda wants it to work. /sigh
And finally, is Olivia really going to team up with both of her lovers to take out her father? Because if they don’t kill Poppa Pope they are only poking the bear. Will she work out a sleeping schedule for this polyamorous relationship or will the two males continue to have a biggest dick contest all season long? I think I am the only one that is okay with this. Most of you seem sick of the love triangle. I say, who doesn’t love a good love triangle as long as you are the center of it all. What was the point of Tom’s rapid fire monologue about how beautiful Olivia is?
Can we talk about Olivia? Was that dark lip liner on her upper lip? Was I the only one that though she looked like she had a moustache all episode? Also, I’m distracted by the rumors that Kerry and Tony are having an affair in real life? Have we seen pictures of the baby yet? Do we need to call Maury?
What did you think of this week’s show?
