If you were in the Philadelphia area on Thursday night, the #Scandal episode was bumped due to the Eagles game. My reaction, What in the World? we’re all not fans, HELLO! For someone not interested in a football game on Thursday evening, I asked on Facebook whether anyone knew of a way to watch online. Presto, I received a link and proceeded to watch my favorite drama series online. After missing 16 minutes, I jumped right in on the rest of the episode. I was somewhat banned from Facebook with comments so I quickly switched over to #Twitter. Here’s the recap, sit tight for this bumpy ride…..We quickly learn that #Huck is not the shooter and it was his new girlfriend, #Becky…..(who pops in with a few surprises of her own, again), thanks to David Rosen, US Attorney for handing over the video to Abby. The video shows shows# Becky entering the hotel so it is a given that Huck was not the shooter. If you recall, #Huck touched the cell phone of a woman on the elevator when he picked it up, well lucky for him there were only partial prints. When #Huck is confronted with the information on Becky he is far from happy. It was all confirmed when he went to Becky’s hidewaway with all the evidence. He goes to sit in front of his favorite house to watch the couple. Guess, who shows up in the back seat? of course #Becky. Becky suggest they run away together. Madame President strong arms Supreme Court Justice, Verna to step down and threatened to reveal the fact she knew about her illness before being sworn in…..We also learned that Madame President is playing behind the scenes with Hollis, something will hit soon with that scandalous deal. Cyrus continues to have James, his husband followed and investigated. How shocked was he to learn of James’ recent trip to Defiance, OH. Despite the obvious lies and deception, Cyrus agrees to adopt a child with James. James continues to pursue his investigation with David to nail down exactly how Defiance, OH is tied to the election of Fitz. He turned over the voting machine evidence to David. This evidence is sure to bring down all the players in the secret club, Hollis, Olivia, Mellie, Verna and Cyrus.
Now with all of the usual twists and turns I don’t think anyone saw this coming next. Fast forward to Becky and Huck and as they find themselves in Becky’s hideaway for a few moments of passionate lovemaking. Becky appears to want to runaway with Huck so they part with Huck telling her to meet at a specific time. Before Huck leaves he goes to check on the family and finds their phone is out of service. As he opened the door to the house, it was horrific! Becky managed to enter the home and take out the entire family including the dog. She even left the Huck’s message instructing the team on where and how to find her buried in one of the plants. Huck returns to the team and they are scrambling for ideas on what to do with Huck………edge of my seat! For some odd reason, Abby shows up at David’s apartment to slap him and then they are caught up in one last passionate tryst.
Now for the FINALE, Verna shows up to see Madame President with a proposition. She proposes keeping her job while handing over the name of the President’s shooter! Once we see the police storm the team’s office it was pretty clear what decision Madame President agreed to! Poor Huck was taken into custody and charged with the Patriot Act!
The question now, who sent Becky? It has to be someone closely tied to Olivia’s team and my theory is #Hollis! This cliffhanger will not conclude until January 10th, a long time to wait for the answers!
