(Continued.. Got cut off.) all these comments dissing Olivia surprise me. She's the one who makes the hard difficult awful choices despite the pain it causes her.. It's sort of like Huck, he feels the guilt of all he's done, but with Olivia it is like.. she is entering her situation knowingly, knowing full well all the torment and blackness it will bring to her soul, but doing it because it's right... So yeah, team Olivia.

Sorry but what is this obsession to see Olivia happy? Considering how unhappy she makes everyone else, why should SHE be happy? Olivia has become too much of a demi-god for my liking, making and destroying things when she sees fit. I agree with Marcus, she has become very unsympathetic. This so-called relationship with Edison is a bore and a waste of our time. We all know it's going nowhere so really what purpose does he serve in the story other than being the distraction because Fitz isn't around? We already have too many irrelevant characters on the show (here's looking at you Quinn!), there was no real need to add another one simply so Olivia can 'get some'.

olivia is trying to protect abby by keeping her away from david...the further away she is from david rosen and his investigation the safer she is.its obvious that doyle will do anything to protect whatever secret they're all covering up, hence cyrus asking james to back off reporting on doyle.
so olivia in her own perhaps misguided way is trying to protect those she cares about without implicating them and putting them in harms way.

I'm sorry but no one can call any storyline on Scandal ridiculous, not after the Petraeus scandal. Nope, I refuse to accept it.

I personally loved the spy storyline, I thought it was an ingenious and entertaining way to engage audiences into uncomfortable questions. Making us ask ourselves if our society has failed these people, these former soldiers ( at home and abroad soldiers) who have to re-assemble their lives with barely any support from the rest of us. When they have sacrificed their lives to take care of our country as whole. The current Petraeus story is definitely scandalous, but it also brings to mind the ridiculously high divorce rates in military families. It reminds us that these vets whom we lionize are also vulnerable, breakable human beings. And unlike Simone, I thought the storyline and acting did it absolute justice. I felt the pain and anxiety of the spies( especially Huck) and it broke my heart.

terrible episode ..

i am slowly but surely starting to really dislike Olivia. I just get a sense of arrogance from her towards people who love her unconditenially. Maybe there is some half ass reason why Abby cant be with David but doing that to someone as fragile as Abby was plain cruel. Sorry no justification.
Note to writers .. making your lead unsympathetic is a pathway to disaster.

I thought this episode was even worse than that last one. I cannot imagine how anyone could be riveted by that ridiculous spy story and overall bad acting. I hope the next episode is better than these last two.
