As far as I can tell, there’s a stark difference between a “feminist character” and a “character who is a feminist.” While there certainly can be overlap, there rarely ever seems to be, and I can’t understand why there seems to be so much confusion.

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 […]
A lot of bombs are dropped in this episode of Scandal, but let’s start with the actual bomb. In this episode, everybody races against the clock to prevent Fitz from getting blowed up real good.
After last week’s ick-fest, I’d like to say that this Scandal doesn’t get down and dirty. Boy would I like to say that. But I can’t.
It’s an exciting week for Scandal watchers, who get to meet the oldest Grant children, something we’ve all been waiting for since the series began. Oh, wait — you WEREN’T waiting to meet them? What’s that, you say? That you wish they could send the baby off to boarding school, too? I’m with you, but […]
This week in Scandal, questions got answered, and we said goodbye to one of the few predominantly decent characters left on the show. We also got to see some of our favorite monsters and demi-monsters act like human beings, or at least try to.
“Time for the slaughter, piggy piggy! Time for the slaughter, you filthy cloven beast! I see the signs of the devil branded into your flesh!” Really, that’s all I need to tell you about this week’s Scandal, but I guess I should give you a little context.
Oh, Olivia. Liv, Liv, Liv. How the mighty have fallen. Somehow, you have gone from brilliant campaign advisor with everything in control to the president’s shrieking mistress.
Well, we’ve waited a long time for Scandal to return, but return it did. This episode wasn’t full of bombshells, but it set a lot of storylines in place.
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.
Scandal 3×09, “YOLO”
This week’s Scandal didn’t pull any punches, did it? [Trigger warning for torture.]
Wow, after last week, can this episode keep up the drama and the breakneck pace? Yes and no. Some of the developments were easy to predict, but they still moved things along and allowed me many opportunities to talk to my television.
Without a doubt, this was the ultimate Scandal episode. Don’t bother to debate it. It twisted, it turned, it was a fantastic ride.
We begin with a flashback – Olivia is a bespectacled middle-schooler, eating Froot Loops while reading Bridge to Terabithia. Then, Boom! It’s Liv’s mother – the fabulous Khandi Alexander. She bids Liv goodbye; she’ll be back from her trip in a few days. We know how this ends up. Poor Liv.
Ah, Scandal. Olivia is back to her Sunday dinners with daddy, Eli. He originally seems pleased with the progress they are making, but she points out that she is just doing this so he doesn’t make her friends kill people. Eli retorts that if Huck and Jake mind their business, he’ll leave them alone. Huck […]
