***As usual, spoilers***
Getting a little predictable there, Shonda. I knew the Senator's wife murdered his side piece from the moment she stepped foot on the scene.
This was clearly a filler episode; it mainly reiterated a bunch of things we either already know or can obviously see coming.
We already know Liv's money and influence are slowly being eroded after she was initially outed for sleeping with the Prez. And it's good stuff; we get to see the Gladiators enter financial straits while the press puts the once Infallible Liv on blast.
We already know Daddy Pope is dangerous and capable of anything, and we already had a feeling peeps like Jake Ballard and Huck would want to take him down. And we already know something bad happened during Operation Remington (cue ominous music).
And Lord knows that we know the Prez is dumb
Genius move, Fitz. No wonder Mellie wears the brains in your so-called "marriage."
But let's be honest...this ep wasn't about the Prez, or Remington, or even the Ex-Spies Brigade and their possibly doomed crusade. This is about Lisa Kudrow joining the cast of Scandal as the soon-to-be Democratic rival of the Prez, and the moment Mellie lets the words "trailer trash" slip while a mic's still on, we know the drama for the season is on.
By the way...Liv possibly back to sleeping with the New Guy...how do we feel about this?
