I agree on every single points. This couple is just not working anymore.

OK, I finally slept on it. And I can still say, neither James nor David got shot. I just don't see it. Don't get me wrong, Jake looked the part and was totally gonna kill Sally if it came to it (btw def love Tom as B613), BUT, he didn't kill those two. The DA of Columbia AND The Press Secretary in a dark alley... ? Well it's B613, could have made it look like anything. Anyways, I just can't see it.
Quinn wants something and she's gonna get it. However, what was her mission ? Mystery... But she wanted in, and she got in. She was right though, about what she said to Jake. Olivia definitely doesn't care about him. Going to him to talk about trivial things then using him for sex . No triangle there. I stopped hoping for something with these 2. Jake asking her to save him confirmed that he really is not cut out to be Command. When he got that brief case, the turmoil of emotions that was shown, this will be the end of him.
Now, Olivia and Fitz. Yup, not crazy about them anymore. That episode confirmed it. I swear when she was saying that there was no Vermont, I saw hope. Her realizing finally that this was not gonna happen, that she had to end things. Yeah right ! I was disgusted by the result. She chose him ! After all the crap. Olivia, you are still weak. Telling Cyrius that she doesn't want to be involved ! I call BS on the whole thing !
Sally, now that was a brilliant performance. It was like Ellis Grey all over again. LOL. I don't like Sally, but maybe she should have confessed.
Cyrius going to James was suspicious because he's done this before. But somehow, I think that he reached his limit. We'll see.
At the moment, Scandal has got me on the fence. The show does not appeal to me anymore. Though this episode had me at the edge of my seat, it was not the same as season 1 and 2 part 1....

Who got shot ? Neither. Period.

I thought the same thing ! IT would be Felicity ! Not Sara.

I saw it too, but thought it was one of Rust's visions.

Man that finale had me at the edge of my seat ! Didn't talk, breath !!! WOW. The chase in the cave... shivers. It was like a tomb. So creepy ! That show was amazing. But damn, them 2 were twisted, half bro and sis ? I thought Marty was gonna shoot her, but nope. I too wondered how the cops got there, but he must have called it in. The man was tall indeed, I thought both Marty and Rust were gonna die right there and then !
At the hospital, when Rust admitted that he would have rather stay dead, I got pretty emotional. He really wanted to be with his daughter... What a finale !
HOWEVER, I too, would like them to go after the other members of Carcosa... It felt like they (maybe not Marty and Rust) could carry on with that storyline.

I think so too... BUT, by WHO ???? It must be everyday. She definitely needs to be locked up, at Nolan's house !

Gosh, so much happened. I thought after Xmas, Revenge was going to me back this month but it came back in January. Then I had to catch up quick and next thing you know they had a break again ! Ems... she is a total mess ! What Daniel did to her... But one could argue that it is payback, but still !
The episode was okay up until then. Jack's mom, like SERIOUSLY !!!! Totally random ! And I'm starting to be annoyed by this blackout plot ! The only thing interesting is what Conrad is up to ! Victoria and Patrick, like how many people is he going to kill before he gets stopped ? She literally didn't care ! Brushed it off. The guy was obviously shaken up. This show is not getting any better... I am definitely worried. Please writers, bring Revenge back !

Oh wow, that's some pretty nasty stuff in the comments below... Last week I was so happy that Scandal was back. However, this week's episode reminded me of why I had some issues with the show. I just finished rewatching it and the beginning of the episode is definitely uncomfortable and borderline distasteful ! Olivia and Fitz shouting , not caring about the guys outside AND Jake, was just plain wrong. These two, honestly are not working anymore. Last week I read some comments where viewers were saying that she is starting to realize that she deserves more, needs more. Well this week, she finally arrived to that conclusion. My gosh Fitz is despicable ! The way he treats her... I think that's because she allows him to. She has become this weak character, it is unbearable ! I was honestly happy when Jake put her in her place ! The way she talked to him. WTF ! Nah, she needs to watch it. The man is already her beard, he has to stand there and take it while she and Fitz screw each other, and she has the nerves to act like that with him. Hell no ! Enough is enough !
And then Huck. I always thought that Quinn not coming back was because she thought she had nowhere to come home to, and that Huck didn't want her back. But what he said to Olivia was chilling but true... Though Quinn really really wants to be a spy... Man I miss her with the team. Will she ever come back ?
Mellie didn't cheat. Not a surprise. However, I can see why people are annoyed. The writers always want us to feel bad for her. Don't get me wrong, what happened to her was wrong all the way, but it certainly doesn't excuse how/what she has become ! Again, why Olivia is weak : Mellie insults her left and right, and she just stands there. WTF ! Fine she is the mistress, but where is her backbone ! Though I did find it funny when she said to Mellie "I understand" . Like SERIOUSLY ! However, now, Mellie might cheat. This man is offering what she wants and is probably yearning for. BTW, him touching the painting after they kissed made me smile. He dared.
All the other stories were okay.
Now, the only squealing moment I had was at the end The song "Backstabbers", I was hoping Scandal would use it, and Adnan Salif working with Momma Pope. Now that was interesting.

I absolutely loved it ! Louis and his dictaphone PRICELESS !!!! Donna playing him was even better.
Mike had me worried there during the case. But the flashbacks were so sad... The revelation about his dad... I loved how Rachel helped him.
Harvey and Scottie... I knew he'd pay.... That wouldn't sit well with me either. Jessica definitely doesn't trust them with her business.
Sheila and Louis crack me up. That was so... weird !
I too thought Michael Phelps was going to have more screen time but nope. Oh well.
Cannot wait for the rest ! That A+.... wow. They went too far, should have stuck with A or A- .
