I am so confused. Last week I totally hated Captain Ballard and this week I want to hug him. Maybe there’s hope for Captain Ballard and Livvy after all. She’s definitely learning that sometimes the best advice we give others is the very advice we need to follow ourselves. When Livvy tells her client to end the affair he’s having with his brother’s wife, I wanted to clap. She tells him straight up, “Stolen Moments aren’t a life.” Finally, the other woman gets it. Fitz are you paying attention to this? And on that note, at least we know why Jake is watching Livvy. He’s not a pervert, he’s working for the president. Oh, joy!!! Way to go Mr. Fitzgerald Grant! You are now at the top of my hate list.
Seriously, what is wrong with Fitz? He’s using government resources to find out about Livvy’s personal life. That is so weak and just goes to prove he’s not over her. I laughed my tail off when Captain Ballard said Livvy wasn’t dating anyone right after she accepted a date with him. Serves Fitz right. I hope he burns up with jealousy. SMH…He really needs to grow up and fast. Especially since he’s stupid enough to trust Mellie with decisions in his presidency. This chick can’t even keep her husband let alone run international affairs. Fitz’s drinking and haterade is impacting his judgement in monumental ways.
In other news, at least Cyrus won this week. He beat Mellie at her own game and did it hellah swell. Mellie got what she deserved and the best part is she didn’t even see it coming. How in the world did Mellie think she could milk Cyrus for intel on how to deal with the hostages and feed that info to Fitz without Cyrus figuring it out? That is so laughable. Clearly, Mellie doesn’t realize who’s she’s messing with. If Cyrus is willing to have the man he loves murdered, the first lady is not a consideration for mercy. Mellie needs to stop trying so hard, but then she’d realize that she can’t win the game she’s trying to play. Men will love who they’re going to love and all the manipulation in the world won’t change that. Proof of that can definitely been seen between Abby and David Rosen.
Wow…Abby and David Rosen were heating up the car, the desk, and everything in between. Hmmm…David says he understands that their sexing means nothing, but did you see his face? That brotha was sprung big time and who is Abby lying to? Herself, apparently. She’s still in love with David Rosen and all these hookups aren’t going to change that. However, I wonder how long these love birds are going to be able to make it before politics interfere again. And as we’ve seen, Abby is willing to sell David out in deference to her job.
Overall, I’m worried about Livvy’s personal life and Huck’s mental stability. Huck is definitely the character you should want to hate, but somehow can’t. He’s like an ugly puppy–somehow there’s something loveable about him in the oddest way. Seriously, the writers of this show have done a great job of making a ruthless killer likeable. Go figure.
PS. Is it just me or are you worried about the longevity of Harrison? He’s a character that’s on the fringe of the show and needs to be better integrated.
So, what did you think of this week’s episode of Scandal? And can you believe we have to wait three whole weeks for the next episode? 😦
