NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal.
Hey, Gladiators, how goes it? When we last left off with Liv and the gang, Liv was in a tizzy and had dropped the bomb—so to speak—on Fitz that he’d been the pilot behind Operation Remington that killed her mother, and Fitz, being a good soldier and politician, pleaded the fifth on all counts, sending Liv into further fits.
This week it was a big old dysfunctional family reunion full of fabulous '90’s flashbacks as we opened with Mellie in the present day in the White House with a reporter doing an interview special giving a tour of the east wing. After some awkward moments and a bit of banter we see a flashback rewind of Mellie though the seasons and are then taken back 15 years to Fitz and Mellie waking up in bed together in Santa Barbara, California. They seem genuinely in love, and you have to hand it to Fitz, he seems to be able to rise to the occasion and look hot, no matter who the leading lady is in his scene.
