Y’all. Please forgive me. Every Friday night we join together to re-live and re-lurve the recent episode of Scandal, but this Friday (yesterday) I fell ill and wound up in the ER for most of the night. Total bummer, totally not fun, and totally thought about all of you the entire time. No, seriously. I was lit’rally getting my blood drawn and I couldn’t even feel the prick of the needle; all I could think was ‘My readers… are going to effing… kill me.’ LMAO! So I humbly beg for your forgiveness! And since I’m still not at 100% I offer up a very mini-recap of Thursday’s episode, just so we can keep up the conversation (and get some ish off our chests, lol). Click inside for more!
Okay, so if I had written an official recap, here are some of the things we absolute would have had to discuss:
1. How The President Of The United States Is A Motherf—– Stalker
O-to the-M-G! What is wrong with the President?! I mean, I don’t think any of us thought he was the one behind peeping Jake, right? That ish was craaaayyyy. And I cannot believe he lied all over the place, talking about how this was not a ‘personal’ operation, it was all about business with Olivia. OMG. Please. He’s so obsessed with her, and it’s just getting scarier over time. I love it!
2. How Huck’s B.O. Is On A Whole ‘Nother Level
This whole storyline was just too funny, right? I mean, Huck‘s stankin’ to high heaven all throughout the episode; nobody has the balls to address it, and finally they stick Quinn on the job, ’cause it’s all about #HuckleberryQuinn (shouts-out to PITNBr Carl) for 2013, lmao! But I loved how, in the end, we were reminded of the fact that Huck was tortured… like, for real, for real. And Quinn was totally there for him, so I’m thinking these two are getting really close.
3. The Fact That Political Families Are Cray-Cray
The Caldwell plot was really cool, right? I love how Olivia stressed to the brother running for office that he’d be better off coming out as gay, than coming out as ‘single.’ LMAO, yo. Single people really gets NO love! So they set up the fake marriage thing, which worked, even thought it was later revealed that he was getting it on and poppin’ with his brother’s wife the whole time. Drah-ma! Very good storyline, I thought. Especially because we could see how finding out about the affair affected Liv; she wants eeeeveryone to know that affairs don’t work, because. Yeah. That totally stops people from having them. Totally.
4. How Cyrus Is That Dude… Again
OMG, Mellie got plaayyyyyyed! I loved this! I loved it. As drama continued to pop off with the hostages in the Middle East, Cyrus convinced Mellie to do what she lurves to do which is to go off and do some ish that she has no business doing, without telling Fitz. She has conversations with family members of the hostages, but she has NO idea that Cyrus is having her phone calls recorded. So grimey! And sooo fair, after all that Mellie‘s been doing to Cyrus. Interestingly enough, this situation kinda made Fitz look like a pawn between the two of them. You saw how quickly he put his trust back into Cyrus, after Mellie disappointed him? I love Fitz, but he’s a very weak, very human President (and lover) at times.
5. The Amount Of Ish That’s Gonna Pop Off If The President Finds Out Jake Is Mackin’ On Olivia
Yo. This cannot be good! Did you SEE that goofy grin on Olivia‘s face at the Caldwell fundrasier? Yeah, no we need this one screen shot, lol:
Fitz diiiiiiieeeeeeedddddd. It was awesome! He seriously, really wants her to wait for him, like, every time he dumps her, lmao! No no, Fitz. That’s not how this is going down. And the fact that Jake made that bold move and started fully, totally, hitting on Liv, and then lied to the President when he asked who Olivia‘s new boo was– oh man. I think he’s got some balls on him… or he really, really likes Olivia. Either way, I’m expecting a helluva lotta drama with this storyline and I hope it keeps up for a while.
P.S. I’m not gonna front, Jake is kind of adorable. Those Henderson/Harrison jokes got me, lol.
Again, this was just a mini recap. We’ll be back in Scandalville for real, for reals next week! And I’m hoping we learn more about this Albatross madness. Maaadnessss!
