Scandal Recap 2.19: “Seven Fifty-Two”
Seriously though, Shonda...no more hiatuses. For Season 3, I'm gonna need ABC to place a moratorium on hiatuses for Scandal.
That being said...this was a Huck-centric episode, y'all! We even get to see when Liv first met Huck. We also get flashbacks of his life before meeting Liv, back when he was a full-on killer-spy. Turns out he has a kid and was married...to a woman portrayed by Jasika Nicole*.
Oh, Shonda, Shonda...sometimes you spoil us.
But before we get to that, I must say how refreshing it was to see Liv stick up for herself when the Prez started that "I'm sorry, I was wrong" bullshit. In abusive relationships, it's the prelude to the honeymoon period where the perp is on their very best behavior, replete with "I'm nothing without you speeches" and making out in a hospital room.
Sooooo glad with Liv broke off that ish and took off running. New Guy's hotter and has more self-discipline. And he has a lot in common with Huck.
And now that we've got the obligatory Olitz commentary out of the way, let's watch Huck.
*Fun Fact: like Guillermo Diaz (Huck), actress Jasika Nicole (Huck's wife Kim) is also openly gay.
