    Scandal "Spies Like Us" Review: Wherefore Art Thou, Fitz?

    This week's spy stuff put me to sleep. Like why are we kidding ourselves, writers, this is a love story, and when one of the romantic leads is offscreen it's kind of agonizingly dull.

  • Episode Summary

    Someone threatens to expose Huck's past, targeting Olivia via coded messages. Meanwhile, Harrison is ordered to take care of a secret that has been exposed. And Fitz and Cyrus are left to deal with James' latest front-page cover story.

    • Intense Episode

      Bravo for the acting of Kerry Washington and associates. Columbus Short is doing some of his best acting in this episode. The intensity of the scenes with the ex-CIA members was awesome. This is certainly one of the best shows on ABC and any thoughts of cancelling it will cause a revolution. LOL
    • Excellent episode

      This episode was quite solid.
    • What the world.....

      This was another great episode that I enjoyed. Of course I would like to have Tony Goldwy (Fitz) come back. I surely have missed him and the storyline about him and Kerry Washington (Olivia). I am not fond of the story line between Olivia and Senator Davis. I do not feel that the chemistry is real, but being pushed by the writers of the story. Although it is wrong to want a married man to be in love with another woman, I hope the drama has not ended between Fitz and Olivia. It just can't be finished. I am also hoping that there will be more than 13 episodes for this season. I want more, pretty please.

      Thank you

    • Where the H*ll is Fritz?

      Another good episode that would have been great if Fritz was around. I miss Tony Goldwyn. I don't like Olivia with Senator Davis. There is no chemistry between the two actors. They look like two friends not two lovers. All the supporting players were very good this week. I like how the stories are all playing out with Cyrus and his husband, David and Abby, and Harrison and Olivia. Huck is amazing. Hopefully, Tony will be back when Scandal comes back in two weeks.moreless

      • Harrison: I owe you.

        Olivia: You don't.

        Harrison: The night I got arrested, you came and sat with me in a holding cell, for hours. I owe you

        Olivia: It was my job!

        Harrison: Don't tell me I'm your job, because I am not your job!  I am your family, I am your Gladiator, and that is not a job to me.  It's who I am.  And right now you need me.  So, no questions asked, no matter what, whatever you need.  Give me some marching orders, Liv.

        Olivia: (after thinking for a moment) Abby & David can't be together.  I can't tell you why, but they can't.

        Harrison: Consider it handled.
