I think everyone is reading WAY too into the Verna thing.. she's not an idiot.. she made a comment to Olivia about Huck looking an awful lot like the suspect.. and Olivia's face gave away that Huck was indeed the suspect. Sally was trying to push Verna out .. her only way to not get pushed out was to use information concerning who may have shot the president.. It was a power play to stay in power .. nothing more. I don't believe she planted the phone on hollis, and I don't believe that she is behind Fitz's attempted assasination. Hollis on the other hand, I do believe he is.. he wasn't getting his way with Fitz in power.. however with Sally in power, his agenda would be met...I think there is more too it, but I dont think it includes Verna at all

I think Hollis is behind it but I don't think he is working alone. Edison was giving me some shady vibes last night. I wouldn't be surprised if Hollis is apart of another round table.

I agree with you. I love Scandal, however was dissaponited with the Season 3 premier last night.

@ Miranda: I don't have a problem with Hollis' predictability. People like him are usually single minded in what they want and just throw their money around to make things move in their favor. I think his character can remain a straight shooter, and use his minions to develop character shifts, complex plots, and scandalous actions. Fine with me!

@K, well, that's unfortunate because if you'd kept reading you'd realize that just because it wasn't my PERSONAL favorite, I still liked it as part of the ongoing story of Scandal.

And no, we didn't see the conversation between Verna and Hollis, so now I, too, am wondering if she planted the phone or had it planted there. Again, Hollis being behind this all by himself is just too easy.

Verna's words regarding Huck's arrest were:
Verna: I'm so sorry, Liv. It's all my fault.
Olivia: What's your fault?
Verna: Huck. I'm the reason they took Huck away.

This was one of the sharpest episodes. I don't think it was overwrought at all (or like you said 'chock full of info'. Although, I closed my eyes at the torturing scenes...don't like that kind of violence and don't think it needs to be that graphical to make the point.

Kate Burton's (Sally Langston) acting was superb, she's a really convincing VP-more than Biden I might add. She gives me confidence that a female POTUS will be soon here!

The scene Verna mentioned in Hollis' office...am I drawing a blank or did that actually happen in a prior episode. I don't remember that scene at all.

First, let me say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show! I will be extremely disappointed if Shonda gets bored with it the way she did Private Practice and Grey's allowing the writing and storylines to dip into the absurdly pathetic and boring categories.

I thought last night's episode was fabulous! I was glud from beginning to end. I don't find it obvious or predictable tat Hollis would be responsible for Grant's shooting. In fact, I was shocked. Why work so hard and spend so much money buying his trip to the White House only to turn around and try to kill him? If Hollis was worried about the public finding out, I would have thought he would have tried to have David and/or Cyrus's husband killed.

I absolutely despise the Sally character! I can't wait until she goes loudly into the abyss! I hope she is forced to resign somehow.

You lost me at "this wasn't my favorite episode"

All Scandal episodes are great, way better than a lot of other shows. So an episode like this one is just great in a different way. Don't know what show you watched but I was riveted to my seat with my mouth open. Harrison is a gladiator. Olivia and Mellie, Mellie and Langston (Langston really doesn't know who she is messing with she just thinks she does). Verna, now if you think about it, she probably put that phone in Hollis' draw, why would she all of a sudden tell Olivia everything, and she didn't say I gave up Huck, she said I may have been involved in getting him arrested. May have, WOW, what a Bitch. Why would she even know Huck was involved? Verna is the one, gotta be. If she has cancer why worry if everyone finds out, She is a Supreme Court Justice, you can't fire them, the job is for life, so, something fishy there. David, David is a white hat. So much more I could say, not enough time, not enough space :-), I love Scandal and I am a gladiator.
