    • Very good.

      This episode was very entertaining, and one of the best episodes of the show so far, for sure.



      There were some very interesting developments, most notably centering around Quiinn, and I wonder who she really is!



      Looking forward to future episodes!
    • Finally, a smart, entertaining show that I can LOVE!

      I love this show! This show is SMART, and full of surprises. I'm not easily surprised. Though I'm no fan of affairs, the story of Fitz and Liz wrestling with their forbidden love is told tactfully and with a tenderness...all without over-romanticizing affairs. We do see the characters experience consequences. I love the slow, careful character development. These characters are three dimensional and complicated....like real people facing real life dilemmas. This show makes you an insider on the Washington scandals, manipulations, and cover-ups. I am no fan of actual scandals themselves, but I am a fan of how this show tells a good story of scandals. Lastly, I love the loyalty of the "gladiators" team to their head "gladiator" as she shows loyalty toward the team as well. This is awesome!moreless

      I LOVE this show!

      It has all the ingredients, politics, romance, hate, dirty games, love (I'm a sucker for romance).

      In the beginning I was rather sceptical but trough out the show watching.... a Fan!.

      • Olivia: He's talking about resigning.
        Mellie: You must love that.
        Olivia: This isn't about me.
        Mellie: Really? Seems like my whole marriage is about you.
        Olivia: Mellie, he can't resign. I'm sure we can make some kind of deal.
        Mellie: I try to be pleasant. I try to be... I'm the First Lady. There are sacrifices. There's a price. And for a time, that was fine. You and I wanted the same thing. Fitz in the Oval. We were on the same team, you and I, and everything was fine. I just don't understand what happened.
        Olivia: What happened?
        Mellie: You let that girl get into his pants! You left the team, Liv! You fell down on the job! You broke his heart, and you left him open and vulnerable and helpless. And that is how that snake Billy Chambers got that shiny red Amanda apple right into Fitz's hand. I do my job. I smile, and I push him, and I make sure he has what he needs. I do my job. Why couldn't you do yours?

      • Cyrus: (to Olivia about Fitz) I don't doubt that he could do it. Live the normal life he's always wanted. Walk the dog, mow the lawn... a simple life, a happy life. For most people, that's fine. It's all they need. For him, it's a waste. Of talent. Of potential. That man was born to be a leader. He was born to do this. Anything else would diminish him and deprive this country. He can talk all he wants about a regular life. Some men aren't meant to be happy. They're meant to be great.
