Someone explain something to me; how come Scandal keeps going on these unnecessary hiatuses while Deception was on every Monday night without fail? *blink*
Anyways...she's baaaaaack! And looking fabulous as ever!
Liv & Co. take on another case, however, there are still strong ties to the White House, which you know I'm over. I'm not saying I want the White House cast to disappear; I'm just saying they have enough of their own drama that they don't need to be linked back to Liv's drama. Just a thought.
At the beginning of the case, Liv, Harrison, and Abby the Red walk into the client's home. The clients immediately rush toward Abby, gushing, "You must be Olivia Pope."
Liv pipes up promptly and corrects them. "I'm Olivia Pope."
And the awkward moment which follows? Golden!!!
I'm digging New Guy, y'all; he and Liv have pretty decent chemistry, especially since the Prez continues to steadily drink himself into oblivion. I like the way they chat, I like the way they smile at each other, and I dig the fact that if the Prez were to ever find out, all hell would break loose.
Another entertaining subplot is how Huck and Quinn are growing "closer." Quinn is getting a first rate education in becoming a killer spy...without the "killer" (for now anyway). I'm digging Quinn's thickness, by the way. She's looking good with meat on her.
I'm not digging the Mammying I'm seeing, however; I've noticed that Liv is often babysitting a lot of rich, troubled white people, healing their marriages, reconciling them with their kids, and other bullshit. Boo. Find a new theme, Shonda Rhimes! Or at least add more diversity to the families, because this is Washington DC. This is not a New Kids on the Block video; there ain't no shortage of color in DC. Come on now.
