I know this show is full of so many twists and turns but this is my theory on what is going down:Sam slept with Lila and wanted to end things with him. Rebecca knew about the affair and went to confront Sam and tell him to end it. He kills Lila and sets up Rebecca to take the fall. Eventually Rebecca kills Sam because he set her up for the murder.I still want to know if Nate is on Annalise's side or not. Lying to her and telling her he had no leads about Sam's trip says he is against her. However breaking into Sam's car and looking at the GPS says otherwise.Annalise was betrayed by Bonnie this week, who told Nate's boss about the affair. I still say Bonnie and Sam had their own affair or she has always had a crush on Sam and is upset that he never returned those feelings.As soon as Wes went to Annalise with the phone I knew there were photos of Sam on there. However from the end of the first episode I knew Sam had been sleeping with Lila.I was not shocked by her last nine words.In the flash forwards, Wes sure seems calm as does Laurel and Connor and Micheala are losing it.
I agree that it was another nail biting episode with twists and turns. I too also like that they are keeping it fresh.It sure looked like Trent wanted the job at TAU. I also wonder if Trent is Beth's stalker. We all know she had one but it has yet to be revealed if he is still out there. I am sure he is based on the routine she does every day she comes home from work.
Pendergast I didn't like her. I hope she doesn't come back. Tony is funny tho when he said Tony spelled backwards is y not
Loved this episode. My favorite since the premiere. I love how strong and fearless Clara is and wouldn't mind a bit if she became The Doctor to replace Peter Capaldi.
I have a theory about whats happening to murphy, in the walking dead the whole zombie thing is caused by two viruses, one every one has and is what animates you, the other is only spread via zombie bite and all it does is kill you. and it seems this show borrows the walking deads rules atleast on everyone being infected What if Murphy's "cure" only cured the virus that kills you but he still has the virus that makes you a zombie? well if what makes zombies feel the need to eat people is the fact that they died first thus causing brain damage before their resurrection, and since murphy never died maybe he is basically a zombie who still has higher brain function.
It is very likely that Jake will survive, because he has the B613 files and is prepared to release them if something happens to him. He would exercise the nuclear option, which would also destroy Rowan. So a stalemate exists and some kind of deal between Jake and Rowan will be reached. So it is possible that Rowan will take the heat off of Jake with Fitz, and it will be up to Jake not to tell Liv what he knows. This is a series about lies, secrets, and cover-ups. What is interesting is that Fitz cannot win an election fair and square. First time, the voting machines were rigged. This time Fitz's son was murdered to help Fitz win. So the secrets and cover ups for this season are the move that helped Fitz win and Rowan's involvement in doing so. When and how will these cover-ups unravel? And will the season finale involve Liv finding out what Rowan did? Will Jake have to disappear as part of the deal only to reemerge in the last few episodes to expose the truth? And will we have to wait until next season to see what happens to Rowan? In the meantime, the ambivalent relationship between Liv and Fitz will continue as they somehow reach some kind of resolution of their latest conflict. Sound familiar?
About Fitz winning. I think there is many ways to interpret the title of episode 318. "Price" can mean also doing something dishonest or terrible to win. In this case, the terrible thing that Rowan did insured Fitz' victory. As I recall, the election did not seem to be going Fitz's way and the actions of Rowan insured the victory of Fitz. Without Rowan's actions the election was in doubt for Fitz. When Fitz finds out, I am sure he will have doubts about why he won. I think Jake plays a key role in what happens in that he is in between Liv and Fitz and in between Liv and Rowan. He has a great deal of influence on what happens in those relationships. I think that taking down Rowan is important, but unfortunately, he is a character that will be around for a long time. In the season finale, I think it is possible that Liv may learn the truth. And we have the opening for next season.
Bingo! Rowan was the one who set Jake up. Why? Because Jake was STUPID and arrogant enough to lay out his plan to him. Fitz is only following the intel that Rowan is giving him and Tom confessed to. Jake has always been so bitter and jealous of Fitz who not only got him OUT of the hole, but saved his life by putting an agent on him. No, but Fitz is the bad guy and Jake is the good guy. Don't make me laugh! However, the writers could go the jealousy route this time, because they always forget what they wrote previously. Lazy writers on Scandal Staff. But the history of Fitz and Jake have shown that Fitz has been willing to work with Jake and even giving him a job AFTER he knew about Olivia sleeping with him.
I did not say that there would be a showdown between Jake and Fitz. Only that Jake plays a key role in the relationships. I was not aware of the Rhimes interview.so it would be great if there is showdown between Fitz and Rowan and that is out of the way at the time of the break. Not sure what you disagree with. Jake's role or the election. But I can see that if Fitz takes out Rowan it will affect his relationship with Liv and she will be pulled toward Jake and the triangle will continue. There is a lot happening in the series and the Rowan issue is one of the issues. After that there is other issues that would need to be worked out.
I disagree. The writers are setting up a big show down between Fitz and Rowan, not Jake and Fitz. That is minor and supporting material. What will Fitz do when he finds out Rowan killed his son and according to the the Rhimes interview it will happen before the Winter break. It won't be dragged out until the finale. Taking down big Bad Rowan won't be easy without hurting Olivia.Also, I actually see Fitz and Jake teaming up to take down Rowan. Fitz knew Liv slept with Jake when he appointed him Command. So, I don't believe will be such a huge barrier as some might think. Maybe for one episode and then it will be on to something else.

Fitz did win fair and square the 2nd time. The Price of a free and fair election was the title of 318. He had no idea Rowan murdered his son and the American people legitimately voted for him. The meaning was he won the Presidency but lost everything else...Family, Love of his life, and child. That was his price for winning. And Scandal pace is so fast. I don't think this Jake being locked up will last beyond 405 episode. He'll be set free. Taking down and stopping Rowan is the story, not Jake. He's not important enough in the grand scheme of things.
It was clearly stated (by Rowan Pope himself) that Fitz won that election because no one votes out the guy who just lost his son on live television. The election happened AFTER Jerry's death and after Mama Pope blew up the church where Fitz was supposed to be and whatshisface made Sally look like a saint by helping the survivors. Rowan then killed Jerry and blamed it on Mama Pope assuring himself that Fitz would a) be re-elected and b) reappoint him as Command for detaining Maya Pope and saving him from TWO scandals involving the terrorist-murderer he set free on his mistress' request.
Precisely. Fitz got Jake out the hole, protected his life and gave him a job the last time Jake stabbed him in the back why would he kill him this time? People who are speculating about Fitz setting Jake up because of Olivia are basing it on nothing but hatred of Fitz, it's not in the text.
cara's future is set.. do u remember the asylum of the daleks.. where she is turned into dalek..
I don't want Eyal and Annie as a couple!!!
I feel like I'm having Banshee withdrawal and need my fix right away. Anyone know if this season will have more episodes, because the previous 2 seem so short.
I actually want Dean to stay a demon and just become a good guy again. Imagine how much he could bring to the table with being one of the most powerful beings on the show.
