    • So the gladiators are now resorting to torture. That's very nice.

      4.0
      Well I thought it was downright horrible the length s that they went to, including condoning and using torture to get what they wanted/ They need to figure out first how to act within the law before they try to uphold it. That was just a bad joke.



      Then there is the matter of the episode being pretty boring anyway. The airplane crash - on the surface - appaered to be a very interesting case and a very good one to follow, but it became so predictable nad pointless. I really didn't enjoy it.



      A few interesting developments with what happened to Amanda, but it's hard to look at the positives when the negatives were so apparent. This episode really let me down. I don't have high hopes for next week.moreless

      • Huck: (While torturing Charlie) They put me in a hole nobody wants to be in. And I don't mean a metaphorical hole. An actual hole. They took stuff from me, Charlie. So much stuff that I was homeless on the subway, begging for change when Liv found me. Which is why I'm breaking my sobriety 'cause she asked. Ok? I'm telling you this because I want you to understand that I owe her. So I'm not gonna stop until you tell me where Amanda is.

      • Fitz: Amanda Tanner is dead.
        Cyrus: How sad.
        Fitz: Aren't you gonna ask how it happened?
        Cyrus: No. Should I?
        Fitz: A young woman died. A member of this administration.
        Cyrus: I said how sad I was. You didn't hear me? I'll say it again. How sad. Let's lower the flags.

      • Olivia: (answering the phone) Are we on a secure line?
        Fitz: Why the hell are you threatening my agents?
        Olivia: You mean the men you sent to follow and scare me?
        Fitz: You told them that you know what I did to her. To who? Amanda Tanner?
        Olivia: Playing dumb doesn't suit you.
        Fitz: Olivia, either say what you mean or stop--
        Olivia: War is war? Fine. But murder... is murder.
        Fitz: (after a silence) Amanda is dead?
        Olivia: She has a dad. A really nice man who is looking for his daughter. How do you think he's gonna feel when he find out that he man he voted for had his daughter killed?
        Fitz: I didn't do this. You know me. You know I didn't do this.
        Olivia: I don't know anything.
        Fitz: Trust your gut. Your gut is never wrong.
        Olivia: I don't have a gut anymore.
        Fitz: Livvie... Come to the White House and look me in the eye. We need to talk about this face to face.
        Olivia: Face to face is over. That girl is dead!
        Fitz: This wasn't... me. You know me. And the thought that I would ever, that I could ever... You know me.
        Olivia: If you didn't kill her, we both know who did. Tell me I'm wrong. You let a pit bull off his leash, he mauls a baby, no one blames the dog. You let Cyrus off his leash, that's on you.
