Hoping that all you mothers made it home in time for Scandal!

Here is my quick review of last night's episode...

OLIVIA took on Josie Marcus, a possible opponent for Fitz in his     re-election, as a client.  Her sole purpose was to "manage" the secret about Josie having a baby at 15. When that didn't work, she was fired. 

Later on in the episode she turned into a sixteen (16) year old girl last night when the special Fitz phone finally rang. You could tell she felt relief that he called her and she was able to vet his jokes for the upcoming White House Correspondents dinner. He still needs her and she needs him.

GLADIATOR TEAM, was sent to Montana on Olivia's orders to speak with those who knew about Josie's baby and to pay them to keep it a secret.  Quinn accompanied them but really had no role this time around as she has been "grounded". Quinn is really scaring me, buying a gun and all...

Quinn: Hey, I found her.Harrison: Grounded!

FITZ...meetings with Olivia's father, secret phone calls in the bathroom with Liv, playing basketball with assassins who also have feelings for your sweetie....Fitz had a heck of a night.  He painfully learned that not even the POTUS can control or get rid of section B613.  So is Rowan really the most powerful man in The United States?  Hmmmm....dang.

Fitz:  You should've fouled me.
Jake: I don't play dirty.
Fitz: Oh, you changed your game?

MELLIE, Mellie, Mellie....Mellie, practically begged Olivia to come back to the White House and run the      re-election campaign as she did the first time. I'm kind of getting tired of Mellie's wishy washy-ness. Mellie has done this before, approaching Olivia where it concerns her husbands happiness, however she was never been this desperate and she never seemed this defeated. She always seems up to something!

"He needs you, Olivia. He is tired and broken and it isn't the job. It's doing the job without you. He's not alive when you're not here. He can't breathe when you're not here. He doesn't have the will to run much less win when you're not here because you, you're everything to him, Liv. He needs you, so I need you to come back. Come back to us."-Mellie

JAKE & HUCK, worked together to unfold secrets about Operation Remington. These two kind of make me nervous, especially when Jake broke into Rowan's house to download files. And really...Rowan aka Eli Pope doesn't have cameras or something more than a basic alarm system in his home??? Dude, you are the COMMAND of the most ruthless, undercover section of the Government!  AND you're not exactly liked by a lot of people!  Poorly written Scandal writers! I like Jake, I really like Jake (sorry to keep saying it) but do you think maybe he is stringing Huck along? Just maybe? We will see how this relationship unfolds.  But I do feel it's giving Huck a feeling of being needed in a different way and that's what the doctor ordered for now.

"Two things make a coincidence.  Three things make a conspiracy."
Jake finally stood up to Olivia and told her he refuses to play second-fiddle, even to The President.  He knows he doesn't deserve it.  And I agree.  Olivia used him last night and I felt bad for him.  Is that the end of their little relationship?  No, not at all.  Olivia cares about him.

At the end of the episode we found out what really happened during Operation Remington.  

Fitz killed Olivia's mother. **Blank Stare**  

Fitz was ordered by Rowan to shoot down a passenger airliner.  An airliner carrying Olivia's mom. Did Fitz know Olivia's mother was on the plane?  I doubt it. Does Fitz know that Olivia is Commands daughter? Who knows.  

Next week's episode is going to be an explosion!!

What did you think of "More Cattle, Less Bull?"
