Hey there, Gladiators, so we’ve successfully made it to the mid-season of Scandal with at least a bit of our minds left intact and for some that’s a very small bit at that. When we last left off, Quinn was nursing her sore mouth from Huck’s stint in dental college and on her way to see Rowan with yet another deadly needle, Mama Pope was leaving on a jet plane thanks to Liv and Fitz (though too bad Liv had a moment of revelation about five minutes too late and figured out mama ain’t all she’s cracked up to be) and then Sally was calling up Cy with a confession after just having offed dear old Daniel. There you have it.
Last night’s show opened just where we left off, with Sally and her confession and a flashback recap of the fight leading up to Danny’s offing. Sally is mad over Daniel’s transgression with James and giving him hell for it. The fight gets worse and worse. Calling James “poisoned fruit,” saying Daniel “unleashed a snake into their garden.” Sally is nothing if not on point with the metaphors. But ol’ Danny turned it around on her telling her she knew what she was getting into when she married him. That he sold his soul to her and got her where she was. Then Sally calls him “pretty and stupid.” Danny rebuts with she can’t be president because she doesn’t have the “balls” he has and he is done with her and well that is the last straw. He turns his back and Sally reaches for the letter opener. How about those balls now, Danny?
