New Show Recap: Scandal, 3×18, “The Price of Free and Fair Elections”

The season finale of Scandal was crammed full of action, wasn’t it? It easily could have been two or three shows, not just one. Well, that’s what happens when real life intervenes. Kerry Washington was pregnant, and Scandal had to shave off several episodes from the end of the season. A lot of events had to get moved up the timeline. And this is something I am willing to make excuses for. There are other things I can’t, though, and I’ll talk about them later. For now, though, onward with the review. Also, trigger warning for child death. Read More New Show Recap: Scandal, 3×18, “The Price of Free and Fair Elections”

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”

New Show Recap: Scandal, Season 2, Episode 22, “White Hat’s Back On”

OK, I’ve got some blood on my hands. But I had good reasons. I had to get rid of the CIA guy. It was the only way to get the heat off me. And that Wendy girl, which I know I framed you for.

I was boxed into a corner. ~ Billy Chambers, who forgot to mention the journalist he killed, but hey, as he might point out, nobody’s perfect Read More New Show Recap: Scandal, Season 2, Episode 22, “White Hat’s Back On”
