  • WAR IT UP, OLIVIA!

    Scandal: Hot Mess in a Clean-Cut Suit

    Olivia Pope is going off the deep end. Granted she's doing it while shivering delicately in a silk robe, looking absolutely radiant, but still: She's losin' it.

  • Episode Summary

    The Amanda Tanner case takes a shocking turn that leaves Cyrus looking into Olivia's personal life along with some of her fellow associates. Olivia and the rest of the team deal with a kidnapping while Quinn has dinner with a reporter.

    • The first extremely good episode.

      This is the first episode that had me hooked, and it's the first episode that leaves me impatient to see the next episode, after a brilliant cliffhanger at the end!



      The various storylines throughout the episode were extremely interesting, and I feel as though it is only getting better and better.



      Still not a fan of the cast - Olivia is gradualy growing on me, while I absolutely cannot stand Abbie, who is just incredibly annoying. I like Quinn. The President and Cyrus are both pretty bland characters and they're only interesting due to the ongoing storyline.



      Regardless of that, this was still a phenomenal episode!moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • As per Sanders report: Stephen Finch is of Scottish descent. He was first in his class at Harvard law and once suffered a mental breakdown during a case.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Fitz: The way I see it, all roads lead back to Amanda Tanner. She's saying we had an affair, she's says she's carrying our child. Without her, there's nothing but that tape. Without her, that tape has a guy that sounds vaguely like me. There's no proof. No one takes it seriously without being vouched for. Which means, our problem is Amanda Tanner. And she's not a problem; she's a kid. Our real problem…is Olivia Pope.
        Cyrus: You realize -
        Fitz: I got into this job to help people; to change this country for the better. I am the President of the United States of America. It's time I start acting like it.

      • Olivia:: I made a tough call.
