Scandal 4x08 Olitz Heart-to-Heart: You Dropped a Bomb on Me

Show/Episode: Scandal Season 4, Episode 8, “The Last Supper”
Ships: Olivia/Fitz, Olivia/Jake, Mellie/Andrew, Cyrus/Michael

**Reader Beware: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Scandal, including last night's, “The Last Supper.”**

Here we are with only one episode left before the mid-season finale of Scandal and it’s literally as explosive as the promos said it would be. The episode opened right where it left off last week with Fitz, Liv and Jake—the world’s most uncomfortable threesome—in Fitz’s underground Bunker. Jake was fresh from being on lock down, so feeling, I guess, a mite testy. Going on to Fitz about calling him ‘Captain Ballard’ or some such nonsense to make himself feel more important, trying his best to secure a position as the alpha in the room when clearly the pecking order went: Liv, then Fitz, then speakerphone, then chair and then maybe Jake. But whatever floats your boat, Captain Ballard. The three went back and forth for a bit to come up with a plan to get to Rowan, which included keeping Jake on lockdown while using the secret B613 files. 

[There's a lot going on...]

Hey there, Gladiators, seems were getting thick into it now. When we last left Pope and Associates, Fitz was delivering kick butt speeches, Mellie was falling apart, Abby was still Gabby, some oddly chiseled jaw gigolo was trying to pick up Cyrus, David was all about that blackmail and Liv was showcasing her boots to their best advantage… around Jake’s hips. 

[That might have been a major highlight from last week...]

And we’re back, Gladiators! We made it through the summer and fall is finally here. When last we left Olivia Pope and Associates, shoes were dropping, fans were being hit, first sons were being assassinated, Presidents were crumbling, and Liv, well, Liv was jetting off to parts unknown with creepy (but hey, still dreamy and hot) Jake because you know…Liv. 

[Crazy, sexy, cool?]

18 Suggestions on How to Survive the Wait for Scandal Season 4

Now that we’ve made it through the third season of Scandal with our minds relatively intact, we’re suddenly left with a gaping hole in our Thursday nights for the next few months, not to mention the free time that we have not standing around the water cooler or on social media discussing what happened the week before. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a list of things you can do while waiting for Scandal to return in the fall.

1. Talk yourself into believing you can pull off a white hat.

Don't miss recaps of 3x07, 3x08, 3x09, 3x10, 3x11, 3x12, 3x13, 3x14, and 3x15. And now, let's dive into H&H's recap of Season 3, episode 17, “Flesh and Blood.”

NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal. Enjoy!

Howdy, Gladiators, welcome back! Last time, Liv had pulled the plug (literally) on B613 at exactly the wrong time, giving Maya just enough time to slip away unseen with a bomb that she plans to use to take out Fitz. Cut to Jake going practically postal and storming into OPA, putting Liv in a very “I know you didn’t just put your hands on me” choke hold.

Alrighty then. You got that one, Jake. That one. This week, we open with Liv out of her up-against-the-wall hold and she’s now in the main OPA conference room arguing with Jake about her poor timing and treason over taking out B613 when suddenly Fitz chimes in for them to hush it up with Cyrus by his side. Hmm, I’d like to know who called Fitz and how that hold would go over now? But I digress. These are scenes we are not privy to, so back to the matters at hand and Fitz is mad because Liv didn’t talk to him about her plans and Liv replies that she made the call because it was what he said he wanted. Then salty Jake jumped on in and doesn’t miss his shot to toss across the table that Liv slept with him the night before to put a tracker on his phone. Did you hear that, Fitz, yet another man sleeping with your other woman? And Boom.

[Buckle your seatbelts—here we go!...]

Hey Gladiators, when we last left off we were beginning a period of deep mourning for our friend, the lovable, if not all that bright at times, James. Taken from us way too soon by a power drunk, high on his own self-importance, “I am in command!” scream it from the rooftops, Jake Ballard.

NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal. Enjoy!

Hey, Gladiators! So when we last left off it was a big smooch all around. Harrison was getting cozy with Adnan Salif, while Liv was all up in Fitz’s business having angry sex and shouting matches in a hotel room, as her fake boyfriend and the secret service pretend not to listen outside the door. Meanwhile, David tells Abby he loves her after getting thrown in a trunk and Mellie has does her own lip smacking with Andrew in the hall of first ladies past, making the ghost of Lady Byrd Johnson blush.

But now it’s a new night and we’re starting out with Jake sitting in his office doing a darn good impersonation of Norman Bates. He’s talking and going on about having no family and how it’s best for the job when you have none and no light on the horizon and on and on with vacant scary eyes and we don’t know who he’s talking to, if anyone at all. He’s just talking about now being the property of the US government and coming to work at Acme Limited and fake selling fake paper.

[Uh, Jake, buddy, let's get you some help...]

Scandal Season 3, Episode 11 Recap: Secret Affair Revealed!

Sally Langston in Scandal 3x11Hey Gladiators, we’re back! It’s been a long hiatus, but well worth the wait. When we last left off we were hanging by our nails and clutching our merlot. Let’s see; we had one dead Daniel Douglas Langston, a hacker with a tape of confessing Sally. Quinn tipping over on the dark side with creepy Charlie and Papa Pope out of a job after royally ticking off Fitz with the most epic dressing down ever. “You ARE a BOY!” So now we’re stuck with Jake in charge (I’d feel more confident with Charles) while Mama Pope is on the loose promising to drop back in “real soon.” These streets are not feeling safe for woman or Gladiator, but here we go…

We open, and our dear first lady, Mellie, is doing a fat two step into Cyrus’s office with the terrified declaration of, “She's running!“ And so it would seem that Sally Langston is making good on her threat to run as an independent against Fitz. It seems to matter not a bit that she not a minute ago literally stabbed her husband Daniel Douglas in the back and killed the man.

[Yes. LITERALLY...!]

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best of 2013, Day 3

The Bitter Kingdom by Rae CarsonMay old friends be forgot? We don't think so! We're celebrating our favorite reads with four days of the Best of 2013. We asked our bloggers for their favorite books of 2013, with one stipulation, they had to be new to them and not necessarily new to 2013. We know we got a few recommendations to add to our to be read piles and it's a great way to feed those readers you hopefully get for Christmas!

Check back every other weekday between now and Christmas for all of the blogger recommendations! See the picks from Day 1Day 2, and Day 4.

Rae Alley:

Bitter Kingdom (by Rae Carson) would be my top read. It's billed as a YA, but like so many YA titles lately it isn't just for young adults. There's a bit of finding yourself and making sure you know your purpose in the world throughout this book (and the previous two in the trilogy) but what was interesting to me was seeing how we got to the happy ever after for our heroine and her captain. You start the novel with her running to his rescue and him unaware of whether or not she really is coming to save him as it might mean her trading places with him and how does he really feel about that...and this pace of action stays throughout.

[Action-packed is the way we like it!...]

Scandal Season 3, Episode 10 Recap: Escalating Feelings

Fitz in Scandal 3x10

Don't miss recaps of 3x01, 3x02,3x03, 3x04, 3x05, 3x06, 3x07, and3x08. And now, let's dive into H&H's recap of Season 3, episode 10, “A Door Marked Exit.”

NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal.

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?

[“Never dis Sally,” is the moral here, I think...]

Don't miss recaps of 3x01, 3x02, 3x03, 3x04, 3x05, and 3x06. And now, let's dive into H&H's recap of Season 3, episode 7, “Everything's Coming Up Mellie.”

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.

[What a player!...]

NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal.

Hey there, Gladiators, so we’re back after the frightful night with Liv, Fitz and the Gang spent munching on leftover candy and gasping together in shock when it was revealed that no, it was not the Grim Reaper behind the door in the hall, but a just as scary Mellie decked out in satin and pearls. Could this be a Halloween prank? But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to the beginning.

When we last left the gang, Huck was back on the assassination sauce and taking on Jake as his sidebar sponsor to try and get back on the straight and narrow. Meanwhile, Mellie was on the hooch. Quinn was on the outs. Liv was shaking like a scared baby bird and Fitz was playing Mr. Big Stuff and walking in on Big Daddy Rowan in his own B613 lair. Alrighty then, let’s see what’s doing this week.

Scandal Season 3, Episode 3 Recap: No, Alice, This Isn’t Wonderland

Olivia and Jake in Scandal Season 3 episode 3Can't get enough Scandal? Join the club—really. Tune into H&H for weekly recaps from Kwana Minatee-Jackson and Nicole Leapheart. Need to catch up? Don't miss recaps of 3x01 and 3x02. And now, let's dive into Kwana's recap of Season 3, episode 3, “Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington.”

NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal.

Hey there, Gladiators. I hope you all are in one piece after last night’s explosive episode. When we last left our D.C. Do-Gooders, Olivia had just dodged the mistress bullet; gotten out of a near-death experience from the surprising clutches of Huck, who had just found out that her daddy, Rowan, was the top dog at B613; only to get home and have a battered and beaten Jake knock on her door and pass out in her arms. Whew!

This week’s episode opens where last week’s left off. It’s the morning after and Liv looks like she’s spent the night on the floor while she (no, it’s not creepy at all) watched a half-naked Jake sleep in her bed while she her mind wander. When we see Liv, her mind is wandering to Huck, but when she calls him, he has no time for Liv because he’s busy tailing her father, Eli/Rowan, whom he now thinks of as Command, a.k.a. Public Enemy Number 1. Huck is taking a personal day.

[So, just your average day in Scandal land?...]

For a refresher and to speculate about the upcoming season, be sure to check out Nicole Leapheart's post “Anticipating Scandal Season 3: Gladiators, Grab Your Wine Glasses.” And now without further ado, Kwana Minatee-Jackson's recap of the Season 3 premiere of Scandal, “It's Handled.”

NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal.

It’s been a long time, my friends. We’re all a little older and I’m just a tad bit rusty, but it’s all right. Like riding a bike, lacing up your Gladiator sandals is something you never really forget, so let’s get to Gladiating…

When we left our dear friends in D.C., there was all sorts of turmoil in the lives of Olivia, Fitz, Mel and Gang.

Fitz was still lost in love (reality TV and Jack be damned), but Liv was standing strong in her 'get this life back on track' plan after finding out that Fitz sent Verna to the grave faster than she was intended to go. The season came to a heart-thumping halt, with Liv being outed to the press and ambushed in front of her home, only to be swept into a waiting car and coming face to face with the leader of B613, her dear old dad, Rowan. Now how’s that for a family reunion?

*****SPOILERS*****

Hey, Gladiators, are you with me? Sure you are! Bleary-eyed, certainly, but you’re here. Cheers to you! You went to Shondaland, you rode all the rides, and you made it out to tell the story. Today’s season finale recap is going to come at you a little fast, but like Quinn, you’re no longer a wide-eyed virgin, so I’m thinking you can handle it. You’ve proven you like to play it a little fast and loose, so let’s go.

The show opened up where we left off last week with the Gladiators coming to terms with Billy Chambers being the mole and a quickie recap of the life and times of good 'ol Billy. Sort of like a video Holiday update, but more entertaining with murder and mayhem. “If you want someone killed right, you’ve got to kill them yourself,” Huck says.

*****SPOILERS*****

Hey #Gladiators, how are you all doing? Me? I’m feeling used, and no, not in the ‘good morning after Fitz, tired but refreshed, we’ve taken a nice shower together’ kinda used. I’m feeling all sorts of “out too late in the VIP, morning-after raccoon eyes, run in my fishnets, going home in an unmarked Town Car with a call you maybe and some suspect sport memorabilia” kind of used. 

Last night’s episode opened with Cyrus thrown to the wolves—aka the press—where he had to dodge questions about Mellie’s allegations and call them “a private matter” with a straight face. Like that’s gonnna fly, Cy.

[Honestly, Cy, you know better than that...]

Hey Gladiators how doing’? Are you hung over? Did anyone get lucky? Cause I’m thinking last night’s episode was just about the equivalent of a long play Barry White song with some R. Kelly at his best while everyone was stuck on a 36 hour on a cruise to nowhere with a open bar feeling no pains.

The show opens with Liv swimming in a fantastic white suit with back piping which as we know means she trying swim her problems away, but when she comes to a stop there they are in the form of Captain Jake. And there they are again and again and again as Jake has now gone from cute stalker boyfriend to cute stalker bodyguard assigned by the President. Annoying much.

(Need a refresher? Check out Kwana's recaps of episode 2.12episode 2.13episode 2.14episode 2.15episode 2.16, episode 2.17, and episode 2.18.)

Hey, Gladiators, we’re finally back! When last we left off with Scandal, Liv was in a tight spot. Torn between two stalkers—oops, I was supposed to say lovers, wasn’t I? Well, no matter, 'cause either way Liv was feeling every bit the fool. But that’s what makes things happy and bright here in ShondaLand, and what a time we had in that land last night.

I have feelings. So many feelings. Things were revealed that blew our minds and broke our hearts. Let’s talk about it, shall we? Starting with Seven Fifty-two, first off, if it comes out as a lottery number and I don’t win, well it’s my own fault. The show opened with Liv and it’s 5 years before and she’s all fresh and dewy and meets Hobo Huck for the first time sitting on a train platform mumbling something incoherent. Is it 7:52? Is it a train schedule? Liv puts put money in his cup, she touches his hand and they talk briefly. They are sealed.

Hey there, Gladiators, when we last met we were left with a dead “mole” who we knew wasn’t really the mole and a Creepy Cute Jake sitting on a Washington bench with a new guy (ya know, that man from Terminator and Speed) talking about how Smarty McSmart they were for fooling everyone and setting up Osborne the way they did.

This week we’re back, with yet another fast-paced episode, one filled with so many twists and turns and fall out, yell at your screen, send your fingers flying to tweet moments. Instead of going my usual route, I’m going to share all the moments that had me yelling tweeting, gagging or going H2theN.O., they didn’t. Feel free to chime in over in the comments section with your favorite scream-worthy moments. Now let’s dive into this crazy stew together, shall we? #WhoIsTheMole

My first scream-worthy H2theN.O. moment came not 15 seconds in when HuckaberryQuinn popped on into Liv’s apartment chatting up their new Liv apartment bug and camera-sweeping itinerary. And when was this policy implemented and, uh duh, if there is a bug don’t you think shouting out your plan is a bad idea Huckabops? Yeesh.

Scandal Season 2, Episode 17 Recap: Between Her Magical Thighs

Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope in Scandal Season 2 episode 17, Snake in the GardenThis post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Scandal, including last night's Season 2, episode 17, “Snake in the Garden.”

(Need a refresher? Check out Kwana's recaps of episode 2.11episode 2.12episode 2.13episode 2.14episode 2.15, and episode 2.16.)

When last we left our D.C. dynamos, Olivia had invited Creepy Captain Jake into her apartment to come on over and pose for his own cameras, which he happily did and in the creepiest way possible. Leaving us in shivers. We also had CIA director Osborne getting a pic on his phone of Quinn, which left us feeling for than a mite scared for a little Huckleberry in training.

This week the show opened up with Cyrus having a meeting in a darkened garage with our favorite contract killer, Charlie, where he hands him Jake’s photo. Charlie asks if his husband is cheating on him. In perfect Cy-ness he says, in a way, yes. Then we see Fitz meeting with Jake once again. Jake is looking all comfy and chummy and sipping on a scotch, Fitz’s drink of choice, as Fitz praises him, telling him he doesn’t have many people he can trust but if Jake plays his cards right, he can be maybe be his official wingman. To that Jake tips back his drink. As if Cy would let that stand. Oh, Jake, you may be cute, but don’t mess with a man that would take out a hit on his own husband and keep said hit man on retainer just because.

[That does sound mighty dangerous...]
