New Show Recap, Scandal 3×10, “A Door Marked Exit”

After the gory, over-the-top dramatics of last week, I was bracing myself for more of the same. Instead I got an episode that was really quite underwhelming, although it served to solidify a few next steps. Read More New Show Recap, Scandal 3×10, “A Door Marked Exit”

New Show Recap, Scandal, 3×08, “Vermont is For Lovers, Too”

Wow, after last week, can this episode keep up the drama and the breakneck pace? Yes and no.

Eli retorts that if Huck and Jake mind their business, he’ll leave them alone.

New Show Recap: Scandal, 3×03, “Say Hello to My Little Friend”

I’m filling in for Moretta this week!

This week’s episode opens with Jake going back to his apartment (at Olivia’s suggestion). He asks if Fitz knows who her father is. It’s obvious that Fitz does not. He asks how Fitz could protect her, and she says that her father wouldn’t hurt her. He reminds her how dear old dad threw him in a hole and then watched him get repeatedly tortured. “Olivia, your father would slit your throat and drink your blood if it served the Republic!” Olivia is scared and doesn’t want to be involved. She will “be a good girl,” not get into trouble, and go to Sunday dinner. Read More New Show Recap: Scandal, 3×03, “Say Hello to My Little Friend”
