NOTE: This post may contain spoilers for all aired episodes of Scandal.
Last week we all replaced our glasses of wine with glasses of whiskey. We found out a lot, characters found out a lot, and despite everyone’s shock, the world kept spinning.
This week was another heart-stopping episode, and full of mature content warnings that should have been around last week, but whatevs. When the episode opens, Mama Pope (isn’t that funny since she went by her maiden name?) aka Maya Lewis, is in her jail bed when Eli comes busting in. He tells her that Liv is asking questions, and so he is going to have her moved somewhere else, someplace else, far far away. Maya wants to see Olivia, and demands that Eli makes it happen. He hesitates, but refuses. She screams his name as he leaves her in desperation.
Stupid Quinn is in the car with Charlie, and he reminds her nicely what her job is—to report to him what’s happening at Pope and Associates. She can just pretend he is her boyfriend! Quinn isn’t so sure about that, but she isn’t refusing either. The Gladiators are already in battle mode; the death of the security guard has them chasing ghosts. They decide to get security footage from the surrounding areas since the building footage was swiped. Quinn looks like she is going to lose her breakfast and last night’s dinner when she opens a folder and realizes she is the perp the Gladiators are looking for.
