Terrific episode! The revelations with the Veep's chief of staff and first lady weren't too difficult to spot (well, maybe the part about being the actual baby daddy) ... but the real shock was the Fitz/Olivia relationship. It wasn't scandalous and tawdry at all - it made me see both in a new light and I actually went from being somewhat repulsed that either would sink to a cliche campaign affair into cheering for both to make it as they watched that sunrise.

So glad this show is coming back for a second season! It's not "West Wing," but it's satisfying my political fix in an election year!


This is the BEST new show on this season. I hope it comes back in the fall. I feel the the president and Olivia altough I don't condone cheating. His wife is a Bitch. She would stop at nothing to get what she wanted, And loneliness is loneliness.


Tony Goldwyn is soooo hot! Makes me wish I was Olivia and I was on the receiving end of those loving and longing stares. Yay for season 2!


I hope Elijah's Hottie is right. This show deserves to come back. It got me to give up the mentalist. That's no mean feat. LOL.


I love this show! And this episode was the best by far. ABC had better bring it back. LOL. I hope it doesn't end the season with the president being impeached or resigning, that would mean it's not coming back, because Fitz would no longer have to give up being with Liv. Part of the shows appeal is the "star-crossed lovers" thing.

On another note... I'm curious about something. This is directed at people who have stated that they do not like Scandal. If you prefer other shows on other networks, and want to read about those other shows, why not use Google to find articles about those other preferred shows? Why come to this review, and even other episode reviews, for Scandal and b*tch about the shows you'd rather read about? No one has a gun to your head. It makes you seem irrational and none too bright.

If I don't like a show, I don't watch it. I certainly don't stalk websites that discuss said show to tell those who do enjoy it that they should like something else instead. What would be the point of that? It's crazy. I'd love a rational explanation for this very strange phenomena.


DeAnn - I wouldn't have expected scissors either - but I would have expected to be shouted at or maybe punched. I've been chased before! I would also have had my recorder on to get any quotes that might have been shouted in the heat of the moment. In all, Gideon approached this guy as if they were buddies - not someone you were about to accuse of fathering the presidents lovers child!


This episode was great. I'm pleased to see it got renewed ...almost makes up for an unfortunate cancellation of another show I enjoyed. I KNEW the chief of staff guy Billy was shady. I've been saying it for weeks! Loved the reveal. I was wondering how they'd explore the origin of Olivia and the presidents relationship while still keeping them likeable and worthy if fan shipping. They did a brilliant job. The chemistry and tension was superb and that sec scene was hot! Hard nit to root for those two. I missed seeing the other team members more but what we saw was awesome..outside of Quinn. The reporter was ask idiot for confronting Billy like that and turning his back to him. Great review. I'd give the episode an A -


Week after week, I've been here telling you guys about Fitz and Olivia; it exploded tonight....Hot scene Shonda, I loved it! But the revelations too have me sick to my stomach! Is the godly VP trying to discredit the president with an affair, would it not look bad on the whole administration?


It's official!!! ABC renews Scandal for another season!


I disagree with the comment saying the First Lady isn't behind Amanda's murderer. In the show someone said the line "who at the WH would want this girl dead?" And the very next person you see in the scene change is the First Lady. Very telling IMO.
