White Hat’s Back On promo with DC5 and Olivia’s White Hat gift from David Rosen.
ladies & gentleman, cyrus beene.
Thank you, Cy for doing what the God Damn OPA should have done in the first place.
Catch up on your favorite Scandal moments before tonight’s season 2 finale!
“Not everyone is here yet.”
‘Sit down Mellie!’
‘Let’s do this’
Everyone’s shocked expression of this dominant Fitz except for Olivia who has her ‘that’s my man I know and love’ face is just the best ;)
I’m going to enjoy this moment from White Hat’s Back On. Fitz’s in with DC5? I’m down with ALL of this. And that kitchen is going to see a whole lot of scandalous action…
Scandal Season Finale Sneak Peeks
Let’s get things sorted out before I create my own David Rosen Beautiful Mind Wall figuring out this mole story line.
- Billy is behind the deaths of Gideon, Wendy,
and Osbourne. Ain’t no stopping Billy now. He’s on a roll now!
- He now has proof of Defiance thanks to his “Wake up and smell the justice” sweet talk to David Rosen. (This is coming to bite him really hard. He thought he just one up OPA, Cyrus, B613, AND Fitz?! Keep dreaming Billy!)
- How did he access all this high level intel stuff? Thorngate. Flashback to the moment in Hunting Season when they showed a limo pulling away from thecrib. Billy paid top dollar to get access of Thorngate.
- So my next question is…does Sally Langston KNOW about Billy doing all of this because he believes she should be POTUS?
- So what does White Hat’s Back on really mean? Does this mean that Olivia’s hat is back on? Does this mean David’s hat is back on? From the promo trailer it looks like David is having second thoughts there. Hit that rewind button.
- Wake up David! Is justice worth it all? Is the White Hat worth it? This is not going to be good for David!
- Thorngate and Defiance is never, ever going to be over, don’t you think?
- And so the mole + defiance + thorngate all equals to Billy Chambers??? Do you agree?
Sound off Gladiators!
Holy crap, you guys! The mole has finally been revealed and it’s Billy Chambers! I know what you’re thinking: either A) “Who the heck is Billy Chambers?” in which case, shame on you for not watching season 1; or B) “WTF? Didn’t Charlie kill that guy?” Guess not! Either way, here are the Top 7 Reasons Billy Chambers is the Most Dangerous Man in D.C.
1. He Hates Fitz
Okay, maybe it’s not personal, but Billy did try to undo Fitz’s presidency by arranging for him to have an affair with his own girlfriend. He truly believes Fitz is bad for the country and has gone to crazy lengths to get him thrown out of office.
Fitz is thinking about places in the White House he and Olivia have done it and Billy’s busy plotting how to destroy this administration from the inside. As usual, no one is listening to Cyrus.
2. He Will Straight-Up Stab Somebody
Let’s be fair, there’s been some murder on Scandal. Even Fitz has gotten his hands dirty, killing a sickly Supreme Court Justice on her deathbed. But it doesn’t get much more brutal than the way Billy Chambers stabbed reporter Gideon Wallace in the neck with a pair of scissors. And that’s not even counting the killings of Wendy, CIA Director Grayden Osborne or Molly, all of which he may have been involved with as the mole. That’s quite a body count.
This is his “I just stabbed someone this morning” face. Creepy, isn’t it?
3. He Has Defiance
I know it’s hard to keep track of things like Cytron cards and all of that, but the quick breakdown is that a super-secret group of Fitz supporters including Olivia, Mellie and Cyrus, stole the Presidential election by rigging voting machines.
So now imagine a guy who hates Fitz and has gotten away with murder having that chip.
4. He’s Got David Rosen
Say it ain’t so, David! Where’s that shiny white hat you’re always talking about?
Turn in your honorary Gladiator card—you broke our hearts, David! What kind of person steals a Cytron card from another person’s safe? Oh wait….
Whatever his reasons, David is helping Billy Chambers expose Defiance, and he’s been embedded in the OPA offices for weeks! Think of all the secrets he’s gleaned in that time, having gained so much trust from the team.
5. He Got to Charlie
Huck sent Charlie after Billy. We saw the two of them get into an elevator together and usually only Charlie walks out of those elevators alive. But somehow, Billy was able to turn a hit into a recruitment drive, getting Charlie to not only spare him, but to do some of his dirty work! That’s some power of persuasion, you guys.
What did Billy offer Charlie?
6. He’s Got Access to Top Secret Files
Protip to VP Sally Langston: when your shady Chief of Staff resigns in disgrace, change your password on the computer with access to top secret government files no one else should see. However he’s done it, Billy Chambers has been able to log in as the Vice President and steal government secrets. Secrets that people are willing to kill for.
No, Madam Vice President, your birthday is NOT a secure password.
7. He’s Good at Covering His Tracks
The people at B613 are no joke. They will kidnap, torture and kill to protect this country’s secrets and they’re very, VERY good at it. So imagine how stealth a guy has to be to elude them for so long that he gets a mythical nickname like “Albatross.”
What do you think Billy’s next move is? Is there someone even more dangerous?
If these guys are looking for you, you don’t want to be found.
We’ve already changed the future of this country once. Isn’t that enough?
Gladiators didn’t you all enjoyed the fact that Joe Morton is now a guest star on Scandal? He’s a GREAT actor. Seriously how can you NOT love THE Joe Morton?
I wonder what his role will be in relation to Olivia Pope particularly. (Shout-out to Gladiator Scottie for sparking this discussion!)
All we know is that he’s working with Jake Ballard who killed Osbourne - the fake Mole. I wonder who is the actual mole.
Also could this mole be the SAME person who got their hands on Thorngate? Remember how Artie hopped in a car way back when? Am I reaching here? I trust Shonda and Scandal writers to keep us on the edge of their seats when all is revealed!
Anything is possible!
I must have missed his name during the opening credits, but I was shocked out of my mind when I saw him! Love, love, love this guy as an actor! I swear, Scandal is pulling all kinds of people to the show.
I wonder if he’s connected to Olivia and/or Harrison! (Yeah, yeah. I know. Just because he’s black doesn’t mean he has to be connected, but still). That’s an interesting question re: Thorngate. That never was resolved, was it? His appearance at the last few minutes of the episode just raised all kinds of questions.
Who is he? Is he the mole? Is he working for the mole? Is the “mole” really a collection of people? What is Jake’s true role here? Is he just the clean-up guy or is his position in all of this bigger than that? Is this new guy connected at all to Fitz as Jake is via the Navy? Could what happened in Iran be tied to this Albatross? Exciting stuff!
Spectaclesinscript, I LOVE the idea that the mole is a committee. I can definitely see something like that going down. Let’s take it a step further…
The Mole Committee could be DC5 on the flip side. Just think about that! I can see the Mole as a team of at least five people because 5 is like a magic number in the Scandal world.
FIVE is the Magic Scandal Number - There’s 5 in OPA - Olivia, Huck, Harrison, Abby, and Quinn! There’s 5 for Fitz’s Oval Office - Olivia, Mellie, Cyrus, Fitz, Sally. There’s 5 for David’s Defiance investigation case - David, Alissa, James, Abby, and Olivia. There’s 5 in Defiance - Hollis, Cyrus, Mellie, Olivia and Verna. Yet again I must point out how Olivia’s always at the focal point of each group of five. There’s 5 in Operation I Want Answers, I Need My Best Friend Fitz Back - Cyrus, Charlie, James, Olivia and Fitz. When things get rough in all groups, Olivia’s the one that fixes it.
So far there’s two people in the mole story arc - Jake and mystery man Joe Morton.
Who are the other 3 folks we have yet to know is involved in the Mole deception? I think Joe and Jake are working for someone much bigger than them.
The Mole Committee: I wonder who is their Olivia Pope. I wonder who is their Cyrus. I wonder who is their Hollis. I also wonder who is their Verna. Could the Mole top DC5? Maybe…or maybe not.
Clearly Jake is their cleanup guy who enjoys playing Olivia AND Fitz for the Mole Committee’s agenda! Also does the mole committee know about him falling for Olivia?
I didn’t want to think that Joe Morton could be Olivia’s dad just because he’s black and she’s black but hey now it’s possible and that will be too damn predictable. I don’t think so.
Also could the mole committee be tied to Albatross, Iran, the hostage crisis, Thorngate, AND especially Defiance?!!!
This is all going to be revealed in the upcoming FIVE episodes. LAWD HAVE MERCY! I’m ready for what Shonda and the writers have in mind, seriously!

We all got in bed with the devil together.
In light of that epic Olitz phone call from “Top of the Hour”, I thought it’s best to re-blog this moment - the moment Liv said yes to Defiance.
Cyrus, Mellie, and Olivia all got caught off by Fitz. Cyrus and Mellie are going head to head trying to gain Fitz’s trust. Team OFC (Olivia, Fitz, and Cyrus) is broken! It’s just a mess!
DC5 has already lost one member so it’ll be interesting to see what’s next for DC5 considering the fact that Defiance will never, ever be over.
The very best of Kerry Washington’s #AskScandal “Nobody Likes Babies” re-run tweets. (Peep her response to whether or not OPA will find out about her bugged apartment.)
