This was the first Scandal episode that I didn't like. It felt so blah. Bummer. The whole time I kept saying who directed this episode? It didn't feel like a normal Scandal episode. For the first time, I feel like checking out on the series. I don't want my Scandal to attempt to be like other TV shows it's not. Please no shades of Homeland and other political/terrorist/procedural shows from the past or present.

The only good scene about the whole episode was the mother breaking down after learning her son was a terrorist. I felt the mother's pain and Liv's anguish at what that lie did to the mother.

Amazing episode. Absolutely brilliant.

You see, my problem with these reviewa is that the 4.9 or 4.8 should be used...it´s either 5.0 or 4.0. And for me there was never an episode thst deserved a 5.0 and some deserved better than 4.0. For example, IMO last week´s episode was better than the premiere, for me the later had too much hype.
And I´ve been saying this for sometime, for me, Bellamy Young IS the best actor/actress out there and Mellie IS the better acted caracther. Maybe because Mellie is definetly my favourite caracther too, she doesn´t pretend to be what she isn´t!
Oh, and I couldn´t care less about Olivia/Fitz, I don´t buy a relationship that, IMO, is essentialy unhealthy and obssessive, nothing to do with love.

I liked the Rosen/Cy confrontation and Mellie but the rest is meh.

The best scenes/dialogues: Rowan telling Huck to basically get back to work; Liv asking Huck if he killed her dad; and #1: Drunk Mellie telling Fitz off and then turning off the lights as she exits. Touche' Bellamy.

Gotta disagree about the Fitz/Jake scene. Olivia was the jerk for having Jake call Fitz on their private phone line. Since when does a Fixer (and former staff member)need a go-between to speak to POTUS during a crisis? PLEASE. Like David said to Abby "Olivia causes more problems then she solves".
Great episode and great review Miranda.

Please Bellamy Young for the Emmy, that drunken monologue was fantastic. Great episode and I love Jake, don't know why people don't like him.

Great episode! Full of excitemt and drama. I have to say the scene that is stuck in my head..... Drunken Mellie! That scene was genius! Genius writing and genius acting by Bellamy Young. I don't like Mellie but that is because you are suppose to hate the villains and she is one hell of a villain! I have to give credit where credits due. Bellamy young rocked it tonight.

Like I have nothing againt Scott but he just doesn't seem to fit into the cast. Whether you like a character or not, they fit in together perfectly with other cast members. Everyone is strong in their role and no one else could play their character like they can. But Jake just seems out of place like he is a photoshop into an otherwise perfect picture. Maybe that will change now that he has a bigger role and we can learn more about him but in I just didn't feel his his character last season.

Am glad Jake is back in Olivia's life. As much as she has chemistry with the president, their back and forth and knowing they cant be together is exhausting and weighs down the episodes. As for Huck, its hard to judge him; some old habits cant die at all.

I simply LOVED Scandal tonight. Last week my temperament was low and I guess that was expected due to the fact that they were covering Liv's backstory but tonight they really brought it home to roust.
I'm team Olitz so Jake to me is like a fly in my soup. This show doesn't need any wishy washy love triangles that's not Scandal. Yes he can be her friend but never her lover again. Miranda you can't convince me otherwise and I can say the same regarding me convincing you. Let's agree to disagree.
As for Papa Pope that dude is the all time cold piece and makes Cyrus look like hew's still using training wheels. That dude knows how to control from beginning to end. Does he hate Fitz bc he's one of those that can't be control? Maybe he can be her hero after all!
