Vermont Is for Lovers, Too



Solid episode. But's the final 5 minutes where all the good sh*t goes down. Olvia's mother escapes from captivity and finds her on the street. Huck discovers that Quinn was behind the murder of the security guard and is hinted at that he will torture her to get the truth out of her as to who she is working for. And Cyrus' plan of getting incriminating evidence against Vice President Sally's husband blows up in his face when his own husband actually goes through with the deed. If one cliffhanger doesn't work, there is always a multitude of cliffhangers to chose from that hook you into waiting for next weeks episode.

Holy crap! Best. Episode. Ever! Sh*t man, the writers knocked it out of the park....again. Blackmail! Torture! Murder! Talk about a triple play and a very memorable one at that. Where to start? I guess Quinn and Huck is a good place to start with. The whole torture scene, even though we really don't see anything, was still very uncomfortable to watch because of the implied / impending torture that was coming. I think it also had to do with Quinn's terrified screaming. I'm never gonna get the sound of that out of my head. The blackmail plan to keep Sally in line was great, especially when she called Cyrus' bluff and sent him on his way. I thought the little dance that Cyrus and James was very amusing, each not wanting to admit they knew what the other person was up to. As for Olivia Pope's mother, I kinda already knew that she was in fact a terrorist and that Eli was protecting Olivia from her. So, the reveal at the end wasn't a shock for me.

But what did shock me was when Sally called Cyrus on the phone and the camera pulled back to reveal her standing over her dead husband's body. Doesn't take a genius to figure out that she killed him because of the photos that Cyrus' handed to her as proof of his infidelity. Getting back to Quinn, I also wasn't all that surprised at the reveal that she was let go by Huck, so that she could keep her cover and get even closer to Eli to kill him. But will it be too late to stop her from doing just that now that Olivia knows the truth about both her parents? Very entertaining episode!!! More more more!!!

A Door Marked Exit




Scandal has a habit of using very fast edits with overlapping dialogue sequences that don't match up with what's happening on screen at the moment. Throw in the rapid-fire speeches and it can become somewhat hard to follow. But nothing can top the first 5 minutes which was an onslaught of everything I just described. Even with the subtitles on, I STILL couldn't keep track of what was being said. I got it piecemeal. Yikes. As for the rest of the episode, it was just 'okay' for me. You would think that an episode showing a White House conspiracy as they hide the fact that Madame Vice President killed her husband and then make it look like a heart attack would primed to be an epic one. It wasn't. There was one moment though that gave me a smile when it was playing out and that was Eli's monologue / rant directed at President Grant. It's what I'm calling the "you're just a boy" rant. It was awesome that he put the President in his place. Joe Morton for the win!! The other good thing was the revelation that Jake is now the head of B613, meaning that Eli no longer has the power anymore.

Really glad that Scandal is back, but damn it, the 3 month hiatus crippled the momentum the show was on. They couldn't have pulled a worst time to go off the air then when they did. The episode wasn't bad, but I did have trouble at times maintaining my interest because as I said, the momentum was gone. Now we have to start up again. Hopefully we can ride out the rest of the season with no more breaks. Looks like they may be giving Mellie a big arc with what appears to be a former lover of hers stepping into the role of Vice President. I wonder how cheatin' Fritz will respond to this. My guess....not favorably.

We Do Not Touch the First Ladies



Couple of great twist at the end. I would have never guessed that Tom, the head of Secret Service for the POTUS was in fact working for B613. Now it makes sense when back in Season 1 he told POTUS about the ceiling cameras. The other twist is that we see who the 'Big Donor' is for POTUS campaign re-election. None other than Olivia's fugitive mother. As for Quinn, I really hope they do something with the story they have tasked her to do. Right now I'm a bit disappointed with the fact that they set up something big with her and yet nothing is really happening. It's like they are blowing a huge opportunity here.

No Sun On the Horizon




So, for a week leading up to this episode, it has been teased that their would be an assassination during the Presidential Debate and their were three "targets". But it was clear that the target was none other than Sally. The entire episode leading up to this pivotal moment was fun. It was juicy watching Sally going into meltdown mode and her hellbent on confessing in front of a live audience that she was the one that murdered her husband, it's only natural to assume that the puppet masters would take her out before she could tell the truth, thus "saving" America.

Well, it never happens. Not a single shot is fired during the debate because Fitz is the one that saves her by purposely throwing the debate. Oh, there's still an assassination. But it comes in the final scene elsewhere and it's a whopper when it's revealed that Jake is the trigger man and he's already taken out two targets. The final shot is reserved for either James or David. But who gets it? Ack! Can't wait till the next episode! Sigh.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang



I knew it would be James to take the fatal bullet in the end. It was really the only option that would make "sense" in the world of Scandal. Since this was James' swan song episode, we get a lot of flashback scenes involving Cyrus and James and their history in how they met, started dating and eventually coming out to the public. They way it's presented was a nice set up to the most gut wrenching scene that plays at the very end. When the episode opens, we see Jake shooting and killing James as he tries to run away. But we see at the end of the episode that Jake purposely made a "mess" of it by not killing him right away, that it had to look like an armature did it. Just a very cold and calculating way to do this and even more cold to just Jake sitting along side James as he bleeds out in the middle of the street. Cyrus' emotional breakdown at the end was also gut wrenching. Elsewhere, a nice twist involving Huck and Quinn as they kiss. Yeah, did not see that coming at all either.
