The anticipation of the return made for a edge of your seat experience. This is the run down in my head after watching another nail biter episode! #FREEHUCK
Wow, did we have to open to see Huck getting pulverized in the face and the waterboarding scene….OUCH! How did District Attorney David get the goods on Huck’s whereabouts, where he was obviously not wanted. Madam President is obviously in cahoots with shady Hollis. Judge Verna finally came clean with Liv to say she was the mole. The secret society convened so Verna could spill more beans on what she noticed in Hollis’ possession, a second cell phone. Liv gets her team on the tip and they find out Hollis’ trophy airhead or whatever she is has a key to his hotel room. While Harrison distracts little Miss Trophy Abby gains entry to Hollis’ room and there’s the second phone with a repeat number……202XXXXXXXX. They have finally linked Hollis with Becky.
Edison finally nails down Liv with the signed document as Liv leaves Edison to be by the President’s side. When Liv arrives at the hospital greeted by Cyrus she is stunned to learn the President was never awake! Mellie obviously is hanging on a thread as she decides to forge the President’s signature which is a federal offense. Liv attempts to check the First Lady by accusing her of doing something to him. Mellie’s fear of Hollis’ next move pushed her over the brink.
Cyrus’ husband is still trying to bring down the election scam with David. Liv takes on Fitz as a client which definitely needs some “fixing”. Mellie created a farce that Madam President was not believing for even a second as she shared hoax with Hollis. Forged letter goes to the press, oh wow!
Finally, Huck is allowed to speak and he warns that the President is still in danger. For this information he is subjected to more not so kind treatment. District Attorney David finally has a conscience and delivers Huck’s whereabouts to Liv. Liv has to solicit the help of Madam President to get Huck released. Here comes Edison and he has figured out the forgery and now threatens to bring charges against Liv. Her response “Goodbye Edison“. Madam President relies on Hollis to handle the situation from this point. Becky is back and she receives the call.
Once Huck is released, she’s back —–the assassin Becky shows up thanks to the recurring number in Hollis’ phone. Becky takes her position to finish the job and then Huck appears with his own weapon. The police are on standby and Becky is arrested and then she reveals her name is Katie to Huck, who cares! Katie and Huck are both arrested! Liv cuddles in the bed with the President. Madam President threatened to go public if Mellie did not stop the farce. Everyone’s hands were tied, Cyrus quits his position in the cabinet, his husband quits his job to get their baby.
Hold on to your seat, I’m not done, Liv gets a call from Cyrus as he says someone wants to talk to you “Hi” Fitz is awake! Just as I called it he only remembers Liv or at least that’s what I believe…..
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!
As I previously mentioned, Scandal is my new favorite drama series not to MISS. This Thursday’s episode delivered as usual, the theme of the episode WHO SHOT FITZ? It was a night of suspense filled with the usual twists and turns! There was plenty of flashbacks when we learned how it all began with Fitz and Liv (and how often and where), the fact Mellie knew about the alone time they shared, what about HUCK living on the streets, and Cyrus’ finally coming out with this relationship. We learned the energy tycoon, Hollis had no regrets withthe 7 deaths as part of his plans.
It was so much to fill up in an hour but still true to the writing of a great drama series. It is edge of your seat drama and in the midst of all the twists and turns left you really thinking Who Shot Fitz? Finally, in the last few moments a description of the suspect’s clothing is revealed. “Red hoodie” a light bulb went off in my head because the only character who wears is my dark and mysterious favorite, HUCK! I’m also thinking What in the World? there is no way, right? Then the camera turns to show him as he disassembles a weapon……There has to be a legitimate explanation for why he was in the hotel room, right?
Due to the extent of the gunshot wound, the Vice President is sworn in as President. Cyrus is in a corner cringing. I think he had some of the best lines of the night.
My theories for the episode is that Mellie planned the entire plot and it will back fire once the President wakes from his coma. I predict Fitz’s memory will only remember Liv and not his life with Mellie. Stay tuned for more clues on Thursday, December 13th at 10:00 PM EST. You know where I’ll be…….

This series brings suspense, intrigue and sexiness all rolled into one…..You may ask what is and who is responsible for crisis management within the political inner workings—-in walks Judy Smith, Founder of Smith and Company & Co-Executive Producer of Scandal. Smith and Company is a strategic and crisis communication company in DC and Los Angeles.
Kerry Washington, is Olivia Pope, crisis management extraordinaire! You can’t help but get caught up with her impeccable wardrobe but then she gets to business with her team….The dialogue is methodically centered so much that I am sitting on the edge of my seat every Thursday night at 10:00 PM EST. When you start to uncover all of her layers, you discover she had an affair with President and the chemistry unfolds with the “look” and then it’s time to turn on the ceiling fan because things start to heat up on screen. Each week I watch with anticipation for what is next, how will Olivia handle her business?
If you are fans of Greys Anatomy and/or Private Practice, Scandal is another slam dunk from creator, Shonda Rhimes! Season 1 has ended with a bang, stay tuned for Season 2 I’m there……
