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- .
OMG. My jaw fell on the floor at the end. The detective talking to "the man with the scars" and the boat passing by !!! That was too much !!!! Sooooo close ! And Chris, you are right, he is the man Rust spoke to at the school ! He's not gonna like it... But damn this episode is my favorite and then episode 4. The flashbacks felt right. Maybe as they were closer to the present than the other ones. It kills me that Matthew and Woody won't be back ! I sure hope the 2 detectives that interrogated them are not going to be lead in season 2. Don't like them.
I like the fact that the roles were reversed and Marty had to do the homework. Loved that they are working together, was waiting for it ! Maggie, the nerves she had coming to Rust. However, Marty's words to her did feel like goodbye... Are they gonna die ?
That video though, gave me shivers... glad they have that sheriff. Make him pay. The old woman definitely gave me the creeps... Gosh one episode left ! WHY ???? I love this show !
