Scandal > Scandal Review: Stolen Moments > Comments Page 2
I think this was one of the best episodes of the season. It was sad, it was funny, and it was exciting. And I hope Jake and Liv become a couple, despite his having stalked her for Fitz. I am tired of Fitz's treatment of Liv. And his calling her "a bad person" after he has committed murder really ticked me off. She deserves a good man who wants to cheer her up, instead of a spoiled brat who likes making her suffer.
I love that the episode ended with Jake choosing Liv over his long-time friendship with Fitz, who really needs to get some therapy. He's become paranoid and irrational. I wonder if the brain damage has anything to do with it. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Another episode that left me speechless. I have mixed feelings about Fitz... As much as I found the spying thing creepy, I think that much of his behavior is partially a result of the brain injury. Jake is also a bit of an enigma. I like his personality and I enjoy the way he interacts with Olivia. In fact, if it weren't for the spying, he'd be a perfect match for her. Unfortunately, that relationship has no future. Olivia also seems to like him, but as soon as she finds out about the surveillance, that relationship will end.
I felt sorry for a lot of people in this episode, particularly Huck and David. David really needs to join Pope and Associates!
Oh how I love this show! Last night was a great episode. I am so over Olivia and Fitz. I loved their chemistry in the beginning but so many things have gone wrong. Him having her watched was the last straw for me. Telling Jake she was a bad person that needed to be watched, I couldn't believe this guy.
I am glad to see Jake not being as creepy as it looked at the end of last episode. I hope he is a good guy and a nice distraction for Olivia. I really respected the fact that he turned off the screen when she started to dress. Scott Foley is so cute and adorable so it will be nice to see how things progress with him and Liv.
I felt so bad for Huck. I guess because Huck seems so strong I didn't even think that he would be feeling the affects of the waterboarding. Glad Quinn was there for him. I love their friendship. It was funny though everyone reactions to his smell.
Olivia speech to the guy running of Governor was great. Glad she finally realize that she couldn't have a futu
The writers of the show are destroying Fitz's character in order to build up Jake's for a romance that started so badly that it will ultimately fail.
By then, it may be impossible to redeem the Fitz character and the relationship with Olivia which meant so much to so many fans.
It's a SERIOUS mistake, and this won't be the first show destroyed by writers wrecking a relationship or character that WORKS.
Jake Ballard is no Fitz.
This is a mistake.
Miranda I just feel that most ppl aren't taking into consideration that Fitz has been shot in the head - have you considered the many facets what that sort of injury can cause to someone's mind? It's the brain after all and not a broken hand. I do feel sympathetic for Huck but I also feel sympathetic towards Fitz. Shonda didn't make him get shot in the head for nothing. Sometimes I say Shonda doesn't do anything simple but she actually fooled me last night when I found out Fitz was behind the spying :) like I was saying I will forever be team OLitz. You know what it is to feel be the leader of the free leader and learn it was all fraudulent and you and the woman you loved could have been together a long time ago if she didn't go along with the others. Like I said something is going on in Fitz's brain, coupled with alcohol and you are not seeing a rational man with it comes to Liv. Give it a thought. Right now they need that time apart, their love is soul reaching so Jake is just desser
I absolutely agree with everyone on all your comments. But, I have one question that really bothers me, why in the world is Fitz okay with Mellie? He knows she was also part of the vote rigging just like Liv and Cyrus and the rest. I don't get it. Did I miss something?
I loved, loved, LOVED this episode!
My favorite scene was Liv and Cyrus. They way they are all interconnected via Fitz is both hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time. I expected to hear Robin Thicke's "Lost Without You" while Cyrus was talking.
I have a feeling that Fitz maybe playing both Mellie and Cyrus against each other and they're too busy gunning for each other that they can't see it. I mean really, the way she kept repeating "It was Cyrus" in the last episode was about as obvious of a brainwashing technique as there ever was. Fitz is a little manic right now, not stupid.
Jake? The verdic is still out on him but considering how this party got started with him and Liv, there's no real future. for them. Besides, Jake might be Fitz's next victim!
FITZ crossed the line when he murdered someone. He will never be the same again after he learned about what happened and he killed someone. It will be like this until something really BAD happened to him. I do wish the writers will address it one day. Even the president should not get away with murder! Tonight there were lots of guest stars !
@mrenee-Excellent points! I'm just glad everyone is prety much seeing the same thing with fitz. You wouldn't believe some of the comments I've read on other sites with people actually making excuses for fitz behavior and some people not wanting to comment because there was no "Olitz" moments and because jake is starting to win some fans over so the olitz lovers are all mad lol
Not at all surprirsed that Fitz would go so far as to have Olivia watched. He feels terribly betrayed by her and he's looking for some reasonable explanation for her behavior. Would be nice if he just asked her, but as TG tweeted--cannot remember the exact quote, that's not how the do things.
They are not good with words.
Also, Fitz is a bit of a brat. He has a huge ego, which is to be expected from someone in his position. Verna did say he sailed through life, pampered and naive. This kind of turmoil must be very difficult for him and he's not handling things very well. In the first Jake/Fitz scene, I could not tell whether he was "showing off" his knowledge of Olivia, or if the swimming and Edison responses were just slips.
Fitz's ego will get him in trouble now with Jake. He is overcalculating, drinking too much and missing simple details. Try as he might, he still cannot let her go and he's angry about that. However, he and Jake share a past and the eaase with wh
Fitz is a murdering spoiled little boy. He is freezing Cyrus and Olivia out because of Defiance - because they loved him and believed in him so much that they rigged the election. DoOes he not know that Mellie was also on the "lying team"? He calls Olivia a whore, but gets Jake to video bug her house and watch her. He takes political advice from Mellie (although it was Vyrus' advice) a woman who he doesn't love. AtWill's party, he thinks he has the upper hand until he sees Olivia laughing and smiling on the phone. He let his jealousy lose his focus. Ergo, a spoiled little boy!
No matter what I love David and Abby (Dabby).
Harrison is truly Olivia's gladiator.
Still don't know if Jake is good or bad.
Loved the way Cyrus got back at Mellie.
I agree you guys. Fitz definitely needs to get it together. I think if Olivia was to find out that jake has been watching her of course she would be upset but I think she will be pissed if she finds out who hired him to do it and that will draw an even bigger wedge between her and fitz because now she wouldn't trust him and might see him a threat.
I am so conflicted by Fitz - I want him and Olivia back together but have to agree the relationshiop has become unhealthy for both of them! I mourn the loss of their "healthy" relationship where they both were so good together!
I knew as soon as I saw Huck grossing everyone out that he wasn't showering b/c of waterboarding. He is also going through a particularly sad time in his life and want to see him back to his full functioning mode - and I mean HIS definition of fully functioning. All the characters right now seem to be going through some loss or another - all of them experiencing the same thing at one time is a downer and really sad. LOVE Cyrus - so glad to see him back in his game!! Mellie HAS to go down!!
Last week Jake was creepy. This week when he was telling Fritz she is not doing anything and Fritz was calling her names, I really have never liked Fritz because he is weak but now i really dislike him. Liv and do better. The jury is still out on Jake. Even if he turns out to be a good guy Liv will not like he after she finds out about the videos. Huck and Quinn are great together. More Harrison please he is a babe! Love Cy throwing Mellie under the bus. I see great fights between them in the future for control of that wuss Fritz! But then again he deserves it!
I spent much of the show screeming at Quinn to tell Huck that he stank LOL. After she told him and he revealed what was happening to him and she understood because she had did her research into the after effects of waterboarding I wanted her to hug him. But alas the smell was too strong.
Looks like getting shot in the head has un-leashed Fritz's inner mean streak, to bad he's not smart enough to really make it work (IMO).
Hey guys. I'm really enjoying all of your comments and point of views. I've been hearing other people say jake is so creepy but I actually think Fitz is the real creep for having her watched in the first place. I think someone said it before but that's not love that's obsession and you should never be obsessed with someone because it ultimately leads to dangerous things happening.
@Miranda Wicker- Thanks I'm happy to be here!
@Sa'ad702- To answer your question about why there's no new promos is because we won't be getting any new episodes of scandal for a month so they will just be playing repeats for awhile.
I loved when Cyrus got revenge on Mellie. She is so annoying. As for Fitz I use to like him but now he is to creepy. Even the way he was looking at her was scary. I have a feeling that Jake may not be around for long. As for the mole (I just have to get this out) It was obvious to me on who it was. Once I saw his face last week and they said mole I knew. If there are any fans of Supernatural out there watching this show knew as well. That guy is so good playing the bad guy. Three seasons of playing an Angel of God made me question if I ever wanted to see or meet Angels. Anyway my point is that if that killer is the mole with this shows writers. We are in for one hell of a ride.
Loved the episode, love the review (great job Miranda) and absolutely crushed about Olitz. I can't believe I agree that Olivia needs to be away from Fitz #sigh. I need Fitz to be redeemed down the road cos I love(d) Olitz and I also love how Tony G is invested in Olitz plus how gutted he is by the way things are. Shonda and her writers are amazing. That is all #sigh.
OMG, they're yanking us around, aren't they? Last week I was ready to shoot Jake myself because he just seemed like a creepy stalker, and Fitz was still the good guy... now, Fitz just looks like a dictatorial jealous maniac who doesn't want the woman he doesn't want to find anyone who makes her smile! I'm liking Jake a LOT right now, and think he looks smart enough to get this going somehow. (And the fact that the oh-so-adorable Scott Foley is playing Jake is a HUGE bonus because he brings a great deal of charm to the role!)
Hi Truth--Welcome to TV Fanatic!
@Sa'ad--the writers are definitely incorporating the title into the show, or pulling the episode title from the script. "One for the Dog" was a title that had me all sorts of confused until Huck said it to Becky on the roof. Now it's become my little game. When will a character say the title and which character will it be?
My post got cut off. Olivia is in for one chaotic ride. Not even a seatbelt can keep her safe with two men desiring after her. I meant to say, "Boom Goes the Dynamite." And not using the italics. Anyways, Scandal rocks!!!! :)
Great episode as always. There's a lot to say about Boom Goes the Dynamite. I loved how Cyrus gave Mellie "the look," when Fitz called her out on going behind his back concerning the U.S. troopers being tortured. Classic Cyrus. Yeah, Mellie is an animal, but Cyrus ... he takes the term monster to a whole other level! LOL!
Huck, all laughing aside, I agree with Miranda, I feel bad for Huck being tortured, too. But I couldn't stop laughing at his co-workers' reactions about his hygiene. He should never revoke the hygiene pass, I don't care how bad his life gets! LOL. I know it's a Huck thing to fall into sometimes, but Harrison, Abby, David, Olivia, and Quinn's reactions were LOL Hilarious!!! I was crying laughing every time it was mentioned on the episode. :D
And as for Fitz, what he is doing isn't love, that's obsession meeting revenge. Getting Jake involved actually made Fitz's plan backfire. And Jake got his answer when Fitz tries to convince himself it wasn't personal.
Cyrus for all his genius and political know how, he still needed Olivia to help him best Mellie. So glad Mellie got put in her place.
Boom goes the dynamite was a very good title for this episode. Is it just me or do you think the writers are encompassing the titles into dialogue. All Roads leads to Fitz, Defiance, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and now Boom goes the dynamite... Those are the only ones I can think off now..
Very good episode... I totally agree with you Miranda. Fitz is a creepy old bastard who does not deserve Fitz. They can never be together. It just doesn't make sense at all. I don't care that Fitz feels betrayed. What he is doing goes beyond insane.
I also though Huck was stinking because he was working non stop on trying to decrypt the intel. Didn't see the ptsd coming up. I'm thinking maybe Andrew the trauma shrink can help?
What I hope is that Harrison gets his own story. Abby's story has been worked into the narrative and we got to see Darby Stanchfield shine a bit.
Can't wait for the next ep! Why are there no promos on youtube?
