Scandal is my guilty pleasure and IT IS ANNOYING!!! I try very hard to limit the way I watch it and I also try to curb my obsession but it never seems to happen. Anyways, I have been looking forward to this episode of Scandal because of how the previous episode ended. Verna told Fitz everything about Defiance and he and Olivia finally ended their awkward-very-weird-totally-wrong-but-we-love-it-anyways relationship. Fans (Including Yours Truly) were eager to see how they will handle this separation and as many guessed they aint handling it well.
So to the episode, it has been 10 months since Fitz told Olivia not to wait for him and I find it strange that in TEN WHOLE MONTHS, Cyrus and Olivia did not see the president to discuss why he was acting strange. It took them TEN WHOLE MONTHS to know that maybe, just maybe he would have figured out what they did. I expected more here Scandal Writers but lets move on.
This episode was kind of slow to be honest. It didn’t have all the excitement that every scene in Scandal gives but it still ended on a brilliant note. I’ll take you through my observations
1. I am worried for Fitz. Drinking in the Shower? Like seriously? Plus Mellie comes in (If you are below 18 please leave now) and tries to please him through oral sex and while she is doing that he keeps drinking his whiskey, not feeling any emotion. I mean SERIOUSLY? I am worried for him.
2. David Rosen has been set up. Turns out in the past 10 months he lost his job and practices law from his apartment while he lectures at what looks like a community college. Oh how the mighty have fallen. It’s your fault Olivia! Anyways, David Rosen has been set up, a chic has been murdered in his apartment and guess who he calls to clean up his mess? Olivia Pope. Well her team try to help him but somehow he helps himself in the end… well sort of… he then takes Olivia off the case, I mean she ruined his life. He brings out his cheque book (Oh I forgot to mention, his mum paid his rent for the past month) He brings it out and says “How Much Do I Owe You?” Olivia replies “For What?” and David Rosen brilliantly says “For your services? Or did you take a commission when I sold my soul to the Devil?” This guy is just too good. Please these two should date already jare. Anyways, Olivia walks out and says David can’t afford her. Which is true. Somehow David finds a flash that belonged to the chic who was murdered and it contained files that are a breach of national security and blah blah blah… He shows it to Olivia, she gives him a speech about dusting the white hat and they are working together again. Plus it is kinda cool to see Pope and Associates doing real work again.
3. Olivia has a new love interest. Well, Kind off.
She meets him first at a coffee shop. How cliche right? But love is a cliche so… (I think I am drifting). Anyways, they meet he says he sells Office supplies, she says she is a tour guide. They smile at each other and he walks out. Turns out his name is Jake and he works in the Pentagon and he called the chic that was murdered in David’s apartment and most of all he is super creepy as he has surveillance camera’s all over Olivia’s house. Kai!
