Scandal Moments

What. The. F! Let me repeat that again what JUST happened tonight on #Scandal? I say it with love too - WTF!
This episode was loaded with plenty of WTF moments from the White House crew to our favorite Gladiators at OPA!
"Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" certainly lived up to its episode title name! Gladiator Ovation once again to the cast, crew, Shonda and the writers for keeping me entertained while I did what Fitz is doing in that gif (GIF H/T - harnages!) throughout tonight’s episode. That was certainly my facial expression for the last five minutes of tonight’s new episode.
What did NOT happened tonight?!!! It got to the point of ENOUGH already! 

Let me count the ways…

The New David Rosen Problem
David needs to catch a clue. He also needs to know he has to play dirty a little too but David can never catch a break! He was onto the biggest case of the Scandal year - Defiance. It’s NEVER going to be over. Does he honestly believe that it is? Does he honestly think he can afford to PAY Olivia?

The New Fitz Attitude
I’m here for Fitz blocking out, his new swag, and ruling on his own. I am NOT here for Fitz’s gut being off! I need him to regain that fierce cold shoulder swag he had and not look to anyone but within himself to shut things down!
Olivia & Fitz

Olivia & Fitz were giving us lessons on love tonight - Work and exercise is the best remedy for coping with love!
These two are in that painful, devastating, extraordinary love and all of that was expressed in their closet sex moment. So I was right. Fitz was near an altar but it wasn’t for America’s Baby’s baptism as I assume. It was for Ella Novak-Beene’s baptism! (Was anyone disappointed that Baby Teddy wasn’t in the house? No one wants Ella and Teddy to be friends?! Nope just me?) 
Anyone loved that they are the godparents of baby Ella?!
Olivia & Fitz are so much alike. It’s mind blowing. They both buried themselves deep in their work to TRY to forget about one another. Their coping mechanism was liquor (Fitz) and swimming (Olivia.)
The fact that Fitz said he had to fight his urges around Olivia made me want to tell him - it’s ALWAYS better out then in sweet baby! 
These two is just…

They were swimming in their pool of emotional hurt. They are hurting. For Olivia to finally tell him that she made a mistake and for him to think she’s talking about their closet moment was just UGH! When she corrected him to say she’s talking about Defiance and he said that was betrayal, I knew that was why Fitz was drinking hard and hasn’t been sleeping well. The woman he’s so desperately loves betrayed him and that’s what really cut through him.
Memo to Fitz: You and Olivia are never done no matter what YOU say!
And judging by next week’s promo, it looks Fitz has quit the urge and did the deed again with Olivia. I can’t blame him. He and Olivia hadn’t done it in present time since she left the White House. Absorb ALL of that, Gladiators. NO Olitz lovemaking since she left and then Defiance went down?
No wonder ClosetGate happened the way it did..
Olivia & Fitz’s reunion - Closetgate
There are NO words. From Fitz biting down Liv’s arm to Liv slapping him hard across his face to me being like 
OMGWTFOMGWTFOMGWTFOMGIAMHEREFORALLOFTHIS
OMGDIDHENODIDSHEBUTTHEYDIDOVER
ANDOVERAGAINBACKANDFRONTSIDEWAYSFRONTWAYSLAWDHAVEMERCY
But the chase down the hallway to the closet was just and the fact they did it in a Church. Don’t hate the game…

All of that pain, hurt, angst, frustration, betrayal bottled up over the past 10 months came rushing out in hot angry I hate you but I still love you desperately sex! Please also note that this is the FIRST time Olivia & Fitz has done IT since she left the White House! All of that was expressed in that closet.
Jake Weston & Olivia Pope
Okay so he became Slim Shady and his name got a remix - Captain Jacob Bowler. He is a creepy Jacob. He had so much potential too! Creepy Jacob - That’s what I’m calling him. Creepy for watching Olivia while she’s at home. Is this the only place he tunes in and watch her? I’m going to say that he fell in love with his mark - Olivia Pope. To say it’s about Defiance will be too obvious right. (Yes Defiance will never be over. But maybe he is Verna’s son she never claim and he’s seeking justice??!) Jacob/Jake’s role on Scandal I feel is much bigger than that. He KNOWS about Olivia and Fitz’s relationship! I’m calling it now!
Mellie & Fitz
Mellie giving Fitz a blow job and then how they had sex in the shower without kissing each other has convinced me that they did in fact have America’s Baby. You can’t knock Mellie for thinking it’s a Olivia Pope problem. It is. No question. But it’s also a Defiance problem too!
Mellie’s Limo Talk to Fitz
She put the Defiance problem blame on Cyrus. It was Cyrus’ idea and he got Olivia on board and then her to co-sign it. Mellie just like Fitz always knows what buttons to push. Mellie was in rare form tonight. Gotta love her or love to hate her. She knows and plays the game quite well!I’m here for Mellie’s post baby fashion. Hats off to Lyn Paolo!
America’s Baby.
Wasn’t he a sweetheart? He’s standing up and crawling already! Fitz spending time with the ONE person he knows he can trust is heartbreaking. Seeing Fitz the father was amazing!
Cyrus & Fitz
Cyrus is losing his mind over Fitz not coming to him for decisions making things. I am here for this new side of Cyrus. He does not like to lose!The puppet master legit lost his damn mind at Fitz replacing him! But by episode’s end he’s still with a job thanks to him twisting Mellie’s mind with “Fitz will replace us” speech! Gotta love Cyrus!
OPA
Abby’s a freak. Abby’s still in love with David. (That work and exercise advice Olivia gave her seem not to apply because next week it’s Dabby sex time!)
Quinn is a bad ass! Quinn has a tool box. First Quinn didn’t know what to do with scissors and now she’s stabbing folks up? Peep Huck’s face! (Huck’s schooling Quinn to the dark side?! What The Huck!)
Harrison - "Do Nothing. Say Nothing. Admit Nothing." Am I the only one thinking naughty thoughts when he said this? Must be the wine I’m drinking. I’m here for Big Office Talk Harrison!
 I enjoyed how the show re-visited the case of the week format for awhile to address the new David Rosen problem. I loved the music played. Nicely done, OPA, nicely done!
Coming Up on Scandal…

Jacob’s a messy freak that enjoys watching Olivia on a huge TV with many cameras pinned all around her apartment. He’s seen her in and out of the shower apparently too! That meetup at the coffee shop wasn’t an accident. He’s been watching/stalking her. For how long is the million dollar question, here, Gladiators!  How did this pass Huck? I blame Becky and the torturing bit! Wait until OPA gets on Jacob! There’s more angry sex for Dabby and Olitz next week. Jacob’s made to be the bad guy in that cliffhanger but it’s TOO soon to be pinning him as one. It’s just too obvious, right?!
(GIF H/T - harnages!)
Tonight’s episode was definitely worth taking another roller coaster ride on because admit you enjoy the ride! Eager to see what next week brings.
Sound off Gladiators!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - Jacob is the mole?

It’s obviously him right? It’s totally him right? He’s watching Olivia. He did tell her that he enjoys watching people. He didn’t hide that truth from her.

I need answers:

  • Doesn’t this remind you of Becky’s ‘secret’ obsession with Huck?
  • How long has he been doing this surveillance gig?
  • Who is Jake really working with? Is he one of many ‘moles’?
  • This is all because of Defiance right? Someone other than DC5 knows about Defiance?
  • Where is Hollis? Why do I feel that Hollis is behind this new scandalous twist?
  • Why does HE want to cheer up Olivia?
  • Why do I feel that maybe just maybe he’s watching her on Fitz’s order (Remember Fitz has everyone on team DC5 watched like a dog) and Jacob somehow fell in love with Olivia Pope while doing this job? Agree to disagree!
