Plus, ‘Scandal’s’ answer to Anthony Weiner nearly proved too much for Pope & Associates to handle.
When running/hiding from her dad became way too much to deal with, Olivia (Kerry Washington) threw herself back into work on the Oct. 24 episode of Scandal, and her first client was a senator, guilty of one of America’s favorite pastimes: sexting! But because that’d be way too simple, he was also potentially guilty of a less-pleasurable pastime: murder!
Yadda, yadda, yadda… It turns out the senator’s wife killed his little lady friend, and she managed to get away with it; Olivia never even suspected a thing until the trial was over. I’m not going to lie, sometimes it’s nice to see our girl proven wrong in the end.
Operation: Explain Everything About Remington At Once
Another fun revelation: The guy Rowan tricked Huck into killing was a key player in “Operation Remington.” We went from knowing nothing to knowing everything, and I’ll just let Jake (Scott Foley) tell you what it’s all about in his own words:
Tattooed [on Peter Foster's body], there’s a Navy flight plan for a secret mission called ‘Operation Remington.’ It was a rescue during the first Gulf War on Iranian soil. … I was on that mission; there were five of us on the ground, and one plane flying air support. … That pilot was the President.
Quinn (Katie Lowes) remained super-annoying, practically Huck onto her shoulder for a good cry. But as we all know, her obnoxious exterior is merely a diversion from her freakish interior. As Huck told her, she’s too “interested” in killing and should stop “while [she] still can.”
Once all was said and done, Olivia retreated to Chez Pope with Jake for a tense hug — which quickly turned into a lot more. There was a kiss, there was another kiss and suddenly it was a full-on make-out session. It was kind of great.
A poorly timed, but thankfully very brief, phone call from Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) put a wrench in said make-out session — but he had much bigger fish to fry, anyway. Once he hung up with Olivia, he sauntered into a secured area for an ambush-meeting with Rowan!
Notes On A ‘Scandal’
>> I loved Lisa Kudrow as what I can only describe as Scandal‘s Ann Coulter. I’m looking forward to seeing her outside of a TV-on-a-TV next time.
>> I’m glad David and Abby are back together. It must be all that extra makeup she’s been wearing this season; she got him like a peacock.
