Scandal > Scandal Review: Who Shot Fitz!? > Comments Page 2
Awesome episode. It left me wondering at what point did Mellie become apart of the voting cover up? and of course the million dollar question why the hell would Huck shoot Fitz?
i say mellie is involved with texan because of fitz revealing the information infront of cyrus' husband (WHY DID NO ONE STOP HIM!!!)
okay we know who but we want to know why!!! i think its to do with the rigged election and the reporters and david......thats my 'conspiracy' (pun there) anywho.....why did none of liv's team suspect Huck!? i rewatched the whole two series this weekend to see if i missed any gaps within this story. what i gathered is that the spies listen to the radio everyday and maybe someone (texan) caught wiff of trackers and knew only way to get rid of it is to shoot the president and turn it into a jfk 2.0
love quinns new take in character. really really miss steven and want him back and with red. harrison and liv continue bro n sis relationship and run pope & co together. don't trust edison either, he's come too conveniently in her life for my liking....
This episode was just WOW! I've watched it 3 times and I'm still in awe. The only thing I don't like is the lack of character consistency with pre White House Mellie to White House Mellie. I loved the post #whoshotfitz vulnerable Mellie who was scared of loosing her 2 loves! Her husband and the white house BUT I do not believe what the writers are selling with the seemingly naive, saccharine sweet Mellie who visited Camp David. That Mellie was portrayed to be in a healthy marriage with POTUS before she found out about the OLITZ love affair. That premise (healthy relationship/marriage) is in sharp contrast with past episodes especially 'The Trail' which showed us both a pre White House selectively sweet, cold & calculating Mellie who was happy to be living in a dead marriage as long as she to got be FLOTUS and a White House Mellie who was ready to turn her back on her husband to save her dreams of being POTUS one day.
I refuse to believe Huck would do that. Doesn't make sense. He wouldn't hurt Olivia, wouldn't leave a job unfinished, wouldn't be so conspicuous with the red hoodie, wouldn't have needed five shots. I don't believe it. I can't. AHMazing episode.
(Cont'd from my previous comment which was cut off. How bout a warning next time TvFanatic??? -_-)
Speaking of, HOW AMAZING IS ELLIS GREY IN THIS NEW ROLE?! I love it! I can't wait to see how it unfolds!!
I agree, this reviewer was pretty terrible. I'm not a fan of speaking ill of people at what they do but dude, seriously?
Anyway, this episode had me yelling and screaming and throwing things and then shedding a tear while being severely uncomfortable all at the same time. Take about nail biting television. I have to admit I didn't see Huck coming but looking back on it I should've because the clues are all right there. I bet the reason why he shot Fitz in the first place lies within that episode where Huck tortured that guy for screwing with Olivia and associates when this whole Citron thing started unravel. As for the Fitz and Olivia love mess, I feel bad for them! He loves her so much....sigh...
Also, I don't trust that Edison guy. I feel like he's trying to use Liv to gain some sort of advantage or political momentum. It's cute bc he kind of matches her, but not like how the President does. I just didn't like how he was right there on the side of the VP when she was sworn in.
Good show but the most unlikeable characters on tv. I hope when they end it, we see alot of them die or go to prison.
First of all I really loved the episode. It had everything that got me hooked in the first place.
I am so happy that Sally is back, she gives regicide a whole new dimension.
About Huck? I am not sure,I saw the promo for next week and for me it looks like he came into the room, put the hood on and started to pack up – why would the weapon still be at the window? If you assassinate time is of the essence, and you simply do not take a potty break so to speak.... Also it seemed tome that he saw the one casing on the floor and started to search for more – maybe just wishful thinkking?
I kept going dont be huck be charlie, dont be huck be charlie! sadly it was huck. idk if mellie had anything to do with it but she was terrified it would happen.
You've got to love this show. Last night episode was so amazing. I loved the flashbacks of Olivia and Fitz. Those two chemistry is off the charts. You know their relationship is so wrong but they just seem so right together. I never liked Mellie but last night I gain so much respect for her character. I love how she and Olivia work together for the good of the President.
Also liked that we got to see how the whole thing went down with Quinn being framed.
Huck being the shooter didn't surprise me. Usually I'm left with my mouth hanging wide open after every episode but towards the end I just knew it was Huck. Can't wait to next week to see his reasons. Poor Olivia being put in the middle of her two fave men. Great show and wonderful episode. Scandal has def moved up to my favorite show.
Worst review ever, you just retold everything that happened without any conclusion of your own, disaster.
Ohmygod! Ohmygod! OHMYGOD not done yet OHMY GOD!
When the end scene came and i saw the press sercetary fall, it crossed my mind that she maybe the target? but why shoot the president? He is BIG coladorol damage, wasn't it better to shoot someone from the constitution? I don't know.
When I saw that hoodie, i thought Not Huck, not Huck! but OMYGOD moment (Or BOOM)
I liked to see the relationship of liv&Fitz in the past when he just became president, see how that went, see how it started. It's interesting thing to watch.
And again OMYGOD (just because i can)
@shondarfan you're theory doesn't sound too bad to be honest. What you said about Huck not leaving a job unfinished is completely right! If he wanted Fitz dead he would be.
I just hope that Huck wouldn't do that Olivia, I mean we've seen time and time again that he'll do ANYTHING for her so I don't understand how he could break her like that.
The whole 'Touch it' 'I'm not touching it you touch it' scene was by far the cutest thing they looked like a couple of teenagers 'You do it' 'No you do it' haha
And that scene when they were just in bed talking (literally like a 5 second moment) was equally cute. I just love them when they're being so simple, almost normal. Olitz all the way guys!!
Now, how the huck do you fellow gladiators think this will all play out?
We have been told that there are other flashbacks - I bet Fitz comes out of it but he does not remember his involvement with Olivia -what do you think about that theory? And, if he gets well how do they get rid of Sally- I do not think she can be permanent president if Fitz is still alive.
I'm surprised so many were caught off guard about Huck as the shooter; I could tell by the mannerisms (though I was hoping I was wrong). But good point about the hoodie, he wouldn't make sure he stood out so much. I have the ep on DVR; I think I will take a second look at the end to be sure you really see Huck firing; I hope that it wasn't definitive, I really like Huck.
Wonderful episode! I was so glad there is one more episode before the winter finale. I want to get just a little more scandalous before Christmas!
Great Episode last night! I think Mellie had something to do with the shooting! If you go back to the limo scene last week, how Meillie had a sudden change of heart about attending the ball,right when the limo got there...and how she insisted even more when Fitz annouced Liv was no longer his mistress. My theory is, she hired someone close to Liv, Huck, to kill the president...knowing that Liv would "fix" the mess out of fear of being implicated because Huck works for her. Mellie would win both ways, dead cheating husband and the mistress left to clean up the mess!
Great episode. But it left me and I'm sure everyone else thinking why Huck being the shooter, and I can only think that Fitz organised the shooting. He'd rather die than live without Olivia being in his life, and him seeing pics of Edison last week was just too much to bear, but we will have to wait and see.
I even loved how this episode shows his wife, not as a bitch who wants everything for her own gain. But as someone truly excited for her husbands future and someone who is scared to lose him and maybe realizing how much she still loves them.
And that ending, Huck. Oh Huck, you have single handedly done the most damage to Olivia to date. And who knows if he thought he was protecting Olivia, or if he's working for someone else. But when she finds out, and we KNOW Olivia will not stop until she knows, this is going to break her.
This review is really disappointing, to be honest. It is a little too light hearted and cavalier for an episode that was deep and informative.
I was hoping to see more discussion of how well executed the opening scene was, amazing direction. And I feel like for the first time, possibly ever, we see the raw connection between Olivia and Fitz (the use of Prez over and over was a little annoying). Amazing. AH-MAZ-ING. I feel like Shonda really let us see what many of us were wondering for a while...why can't the two of them let each other go. The conversation in the garden, amazing. I loved seeing how they were before Fitz got possessive, before he got manipulative. It was such a game changer for viewers, seeing the two of them in a different light.

Did anyone notice we had a nice little Gilmore Girls reunion (Lane Kim and Mitchum Huntsberger) on the episode?
@Delilah, Hollis Doyle probably hired Huck to kill the press secretary and cover it as an attempt on the president. And Huck is probably the one who killed the seven, too. He's a professional killer...
I read an interesting theory that the target was actually the press secretary (who actually died) because she found out about the voting machines. And that Huck made it look like the POTUS was the target and the press secretary collateral damage so no one would question why someone would kill the press secretary. That could explain a lot.
OH good heavens, i just watch this and i am still hyperventilating> that last seen with Huck shocked the bajeebees out of me and Sally taking over, like why would they vote with her in, the man literally just got shot, could they wait a week or longer. If she gets blamed for the whole vote machine thing i wouldn't be sorry, then they could spin it that it was her plan all along to get the presidency that way and try and pin everything on FITZ. Because it was her guy that tried to take out the president a while back, they could say that she has been using many other tactics and this was her bringing out the big guns. Oh my, this show is simply amazing....nothing on TV like this at all. i have never had a show that gets my adrenaline pumping nearly every episode. Good job to Shonda, cast and crew
I don't think Huck actually shot the prez. He doesnt miss and he def doesn't leave a job undone. If his intent was to kill, the prez would have been dead plus there would not have been any innocent bystanders killed. The press sec was no where near the prez and she was killed. Sloppy shooting, almost as if there was a scuffle in the shooter's room. I think there was a second person in the room and Huck was there to stop them. Cant wait to see if my theory is right!
