Scandal Meme: Plot Twist [1/1]
↳ “I hear we have a David Rosen issue.” (Episode 2x04)
White Hat’s Back On promo with DC5 and Olivia’s White Hat gift from David Rosen.
“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…
Happy 2/21 Scandalous Thursday
Shout out to ABC for the “#whoisthemole” posters. All i did was add my personal touch to them.
Beautiful Scandal edit, GladiatorinChucks!

Even the devil loves his
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!

The official ABC Scandal website has updated their blog section with “Who is the Mole?” Look at their suspects….
OMG, Gladiators! After what looked like slam-dunk evidence, it seems that Osbourne wasn’t the mole after all. But if the late Director of the CIA wasn’t the mole, who could it be? Here are some suspects.Captain Jake BallardWe already know there’s something off about this guy. He’s spying on Olivia for Fitz, but then he’s lying about their relationship when he briefs the President. He definitely knows something about the mole after his meeting with a mysterious stranger immediately after Osbourne’s death—which he may have even been involved in. Could this charming and mysterious new man in Olivia’s life be a double agent?Mystery ManWe don’t know much about this guy, other than that he met with Jake immediately after Osbourne’s apparent suicide and seemed to know that the late CIA Director was not the mole. He also seemed pleased that the mole’s identity was still secret.Cyrus BeeneCyrus is a true believer when it comes to President Grant, but that doesn’t mean he’s not willing to get his hands dirty if that’s what it takes. Perhaps he’s involved and has a plan that will get him back in Fitz’s good graces or he’s somehow putting “the good of the country” above morality once again. Let’s not forget, Cyrus almost had a hitman kill his own husband to protect his secrets.
Mellie GrantIf there’s one thing you don’t want to do, it’s underestimate the First Lady. While she’s surely not in a lot of briefings that the mole would need access to, it’s also possible that she’s able to look at documents when Fitz isn’t watching or has her own loyal staff to spy for her. After all, what better cover is there than the loving, concerned wife. But what would be her motive?Hollis DoyleThere’s no love lost between Hollis and the White House, but like it or not they’ve been intertwined since Fitz’s campaign. That said, Hollis has been known to back a different player—such as Vice President Langston—when it suits him. He certainly is given a lot of access at the White House and his big bank account could buy him a lot of secrets.Vice President Sally LangstonSpeaking of the Vice President, Sally Langston sure seemed comfortable taking charge after the assassination attempt on Fitz. While she later admitted the job was maybe more than she wanted when Fitz returned, that could have easily been placating the President with some nice words while she worked behind the scene to undermine him. Regardless, it’s clear that the VP has her own agenda, and isn’t afraid to play hardball.So, which of our prime suspects could it be? Or have we even MET the mole yet? Share your theories in the comments and on Twitter with the hastag #WhoIsTheMole!
