Scandal is just so scandalicious and I’m absolutely loving it! Let’s start off with Olivia shall we? Why can’t she just get over Fitz and be with Jake. I mean, he’s there for her apparently doing things to her that she likes and even came back to the States for her. Jake on the other hand, keeps telling her that he’s not her boyfriend, so he can’t have dinner with her creepy father, because she’s in love with another man. Speaking of Rowan, Jake knows what he did. He knows that he had Harrison and Jerry killed and told him to leave town and to never come back. We all know that Rowan would never fall for that no matter how big the threat. I think that dinner went pretty well, don’t you?
Now on to Mellie, who is still struggling to get back to normal life, which is completely understandable. She becomes fixated on this national news story about a husband and wife who went hiking only to have the husband fall to his death and the wife presumed to have pushed him. She basically calls a cabinet meeting only to find herself embarrassed as they’ve already solved the case.
David Rosen seems to have found himself inside the President’s inner circle, a.k.a The Bubble. He helps President Grant with the issue of gun control, only to find the senator he had blackmailed is now dead. Suicide by gun. Go figure.
Lizzie (Portia de Rossi) is still doing whatever it is that she’s doing and it seems to be working, as no last name Michael (Matthew Del Negro) finally got Cyrus to give it up. We all know it’s going to come out that he’s paid for sex with a male prostitute.
In this week’s episode titled “Like Father, Like Daughter,” Fitz asks Olivia to shut down a situation that could destroy the Grant family’s reputation – assuming this has something to do with Olivia finding Karen Grant, now played by Mary Mouser, which we reported earlier last month.
Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
