#Scandal222 Recap - “We made it!”
Gladiators we made it to the season 2 finale of Scandal! That cliffhanger moment though? WE. CALLED. IT!!!
Let’s focus on the cliffhanger moment shall we? Joe Morton is Olivia Pope’s dad. The man behind B613 is her dad which explains a great deal about Olivia Pope and her need to fix/handle things. It also explains her relationship with Fitz.
Knowing all of this - does Cyrus know that Rowan is Olivia’s dad?
So if we all sort of called it that Rowan is Olivia’s dad. Is it wrong of me to assume that Harrison is somehow related to Olivia or is that just being too well narrow?
David Rosen played Billy Chambers to get what he wanted - his white hat as the US Attorney General. Because of the fact that David recorded Billy’s confession, Fitz made him a hero. David Rosen discovered the mole.
Now let’s talk about Fit - the man of the hour!
Fitz had so many great mic drop moments from “Using my superpowers” to “Mellie this phase of our lives are over.” It was beyond amazing to see Fitz and Olivia working together as a team.
Let’s talk about Olivia Pope fashion:
Olivia Pope White Jacket came back on! She’s in fixer mode! I love when and where the white jacket came into place.
Let’s talk about Quinn Perkins:
Baby Huck was fire tonight. There’s a reason why Huck said he worried about Quinn like he worries about Olivia. Quinn looked like she had too much fun drilling into Billy Chambers, didn’t she?
Let’s talk about Huck:
Huck looked like he went back into his 752 wall there. Season 3 is going to be interesting to see how this develops.
Let’s talk about Cyrus and James.
Cyrus didn’t let a heart attack stop him from being the man behind the man. James telling Cyrus he didn’t want him to die.
Let’s talk about Olitz:
That Olitz phone moment tied in with White Hat’s Off. Didn’t it. “I don’t need you” connects with what Fitz told Olivia earlier in the season.
Let’s talk about Jake:
Jake admitting that his mission was to sleep her. I peep that sly grin. Your mission to end Olitz and if the bakery girl had to be killed in the process so be it, huh? My assumption was later proved right when Jake was seen put in a hole in the floor.
Let’s talk about Cyrus:
Cyrus just pulled the trigger. He told Olivia that Fitz killed Verna. He show Fitz the Olake tape. OH MY STARS!
Let’s talk about DC5:
DC5 meet up. David Rosen returned the Cytron card to Cyrus. David worn a wire recording Billy’s confession. Look at the body language between Olitz there. Fitz went from being at the head of the table to not right?
Let’s talk about David still wearing the white hat:
David Rosen found the mole. David Rosen’s a hero! David’s now the US Attorney of General. And most importantly Alyssa is back!
Let’s talk about Olitz post Cyrus pulling the trigger:
Olitz in the Oval. Olivia and Fitz forgave one another about Verna and Jake Ballard but Olivia decided that she needs to be a gladiator. Her words:
Run with Mellie by your side. Abby, Harrison, Quinn and Huck they need me.
I took them too far. Over the wrong cliff.
You can win with Mellie by your side.
You’re going to e my first lady.
I can’t leave them. They need me.
I’m their gladiator.
And because of this Fitz knelt down before Mellie and Olivia got caught in a media storm outside her apartment with reporters asking her if she is Fitz’s mistress?
Let’s talk about the cliffhanger:
Cliffhanger is what we all saw coming right? This explains EVERYTHING about Olivia Pope. Rowan’s dad!!!
And just like that we made it, Gladiators!
I’ll sound off on my favorite moments from this episode in details later on!
