My cable for some reason does not like for me to watch the local ABC channel without rebooting it so last night I missed Scandal and part of HTGAWM. I’m getting caught up now On Demand. Sadly On Demand I am not really allowed to pause so my thoughts will be brief and erratic.
We begin with the hand off of Olivia to “Iran” only Olivia managed to stop it from happening altogether by bamboozling both sides and making them both run scared from the meeting place.
Mellie gives a great speech to the Vice President, Andrew which totally emasculates him. Andrew threatens Mellie that she will never be president either because he will tell the press about their torrid sex life. Clearly, Andrew needs to die.
In the White House secret chambers. Olivia’s extraction chances are at about 30%. It’s obviously took risky. But Fitz insists they continue with their plan. I have a lot of questions. I thought the kidnappers had Olivia in a Hollywood studio of some sort on US grounds. Where was the transfer point? Was it in Iran? How could tweedle dee and tweedle dum get Olivia to Iran?
Back in the Oval Office, Cyrus goes OFF in one of his epic rants against Fitz and quits his job. Except it was all a fantasy in his head. I hate when they do that. Mellie and Elizabeth have an interesting conversation about neutralizing Andrew over cucumber sandwiches.
Jake has a creepy conversation with Huck telling him that he can’t let his inner murderer out. Quinn also makes Huck promise not to kill anyone. Elizabeth shows up to see Huck begging him not to kill her. And asks him to kill Andrew. Huck says he is out of the killing business.
Cyrus tells the other big wigs that Olivia needs to be killed despite Fitz’s desire to extract. Meanwhile, Huck tied with the Russians to by Olivia but Olivia managed to scare the three stooges toward the Russians.
Huck injects Andrew with poison only halfway killing him and leaving Elizabeth there to call 911 or not. This keeps the promise Quinn made him give, “No more blood.” #Semantics
OMG! Mama Pope sent Jake to where Papa Pope has gone fishing. We get an epic speech by Papa Pope on the details of fishing. It appears Papa Pope has disowned Olivia.
Cyrus and the CIA director are preparing to “neutralize the asset” as Liv is exchanged. CIA tries to kill Liv. But Cyrus stops them when he realizes that the guy picking her up is a former gladiator. Liv grabs the dude’s gun and she takes out a kneecap of the creepy asshole holding her hostage. Then she proceeds to kick the shit out of him.
Mellie goes to visit Andrew who is in a vegetative state.
Liv is debriefed and gets a bit anxious and overwhelmed. Jake andQuinn take her home. Huck puts more locks on her door and a new security system. Jake offers to stay. Olivia says no. She just wants to sleep. That means she wants to call Fitz. But he shows up at the door. And they argue because he wanted to save her. She is pissed at all the people who died in order to save her. Olivia says he didn’t save her she is on her own. WTF does that mean? Why can’t Liv just have a reuniting moment with either Jake or Fitz. Just pick one for fuck sake. Am I the only one that saw chemistry between Liv and the old gladiator guy? Do you think he will be back?
On HTGAWM Cicely Tyson appears as Annalise’s mother who we will find out was really named Anna May. Mama storms in with an epic rant. “So, your no-account, sorry-ass husband ,who I said, ‘Don’t marry!’, couldn’t keep his peter in his pants and slept with a white woman. Then the fool goes and kills the white woman when he finds out she has his bun in her nasty oven. After that, your ex-police boyfriend kills the no-good husband and gets himself arrested. And you now, ain’t got no husband, ain’t got no boyfriend, and you holed up in this bed like the Queen of Sheba. Does that about cover it?”
I just saw Nate’s nude scenes and dayum. I’m even more pissed I don’t have that on DVR. I just spent way too much time looking for and not finding a screen cap.
I don’t want to watch this again or go in-depth in recapping because I’m not up for the child molestation story again. I didn’t see how that was necessary or germane to the story other than to explain why Annalise and her mother have issues.
Moving on, this week was all about making it seem like the little druggie girl may have been the one who killed Lila after all. Was Wes duped? At the end we see Rebecca is keeping very close tabs on Wes and knows he had tracked down Rudy. Rudy is the former tenant of Wes’s apartment. There has always been something weird about him, and the nail scratches in the wall over the bed. When Wes finds him, he’s in a locked psycho ward and seems to have lost the ability to speak. He does eek out one word when shown Rebecca’s figure “wet.”
DUN, dun, dun dun, DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!!!!
It looks like next week is the two-hour finale. Which means either no Scandal or no Grey’s.
Speaking of Grey’s I haven’t watched it yet. I’m about to have lunch so maybe I’ll watch it now. Feel free to chat away about any of the three shows here.
