Hm. *side-eye* Something's not adding up.
Though I hate to admit it, last week's episode raised more questions. Fitz didn't seem to realize he helped ice the boss's wife, and since Daddy Pope's grief seemed genuine, I think her death was his punishment.
I mean, that's how it works, right?
In the meantime, I'm glad Liv decided to help Josie Marcus run for President rather than Fitz. Fitz needs to go, and he needs to take Sally with him. I like seeing Liv work for someone - anyone - who isn't the Prez. And I like the idea of her and Jake or, again anyone, who isn't the goddamn Prez. I'm just hoping she doesn't change her mind and go crawling back to him, because if you read the comments on Hulu, there's a widespread concern about that ish.
Meanwhile, the Tea Party has invaded Scandal, y'all and it's starting to make the politics of the show seem more real. At first I twitched, but then a part of me wondered what took so long for them to rear their heads. Then I realized it's "election season" on Scandal and pretty much that time of the year.
As always, Cyrus and James remain my favorite couple, and Quinn is being "groomed" by B613, which is really cause for concern. I can only imagine what they're conditioning this girl to do. I'm truly at a loss; I can't even guess what they would want with her, but girlie ought to have more sense when Charlie shows up at her favorite firing range and starts saying all the things Huck won't say. Mm-hm.
And can we talk about Mellie being all glowy and gushy on getting Olivia back? How hilarious, especially when she's furious that Fitz drives her away. I can't even describe the scene; you have to see it for yourself:
