    Now that they've given us the info on Olivia's Mom, nope, don't believe she's dead. I suspect Diahann Carroll will show up as Mom sometime this season (pure speculation on my part, I've seen nothing reported anywhere.)

    Yeah I really hope they explore this further and it isn't just for odd comic dialog.

    Day-um.

    Can they cover any more ground in one episode?

    Cyrus: "You are evil. "
    Mellie: "You're welcome"

    :D

    Joe Morton is fantastic as Olivia's father. So intense.

    The guy is super talented It's good to see him getting some better material to work with. Eureka was a joke in terms of writing.
    I highly recommend a film Morton was in called Lone Star (1996). It was arguably John Sayles' last great film.

    Huck didn't know that Olivia's father is the big cheese? I thought Daddy dearest put Huck in the hole? Guess I must be misremembering that episode.

    Huck only saw that other operative from season 2 while he was in the hole and one other guy, Daddy wasn't there. I just binge watched the whole show a couple of weeks ago so I THINK I'm remembering it right.

    I probably shouldn't be reading this; we started watching this on Netflix recently and just started season 2 last night.

    I really like it (especially the characters and the fast paced dialog), but I could go for a little less "will they or won't they" between Liv and the President (keep in mind where we are in the series--maybe this toned down later). I enjoy it more for the over the top lawyer/detective work, and less for the relationship stuff.

    Thanks Gunnyman. Been a while since I've seen it, so I couldn't remember if Huck saw Daddy. Given what happened in the ep, it makes sense he didn't see him, but I wasn't sure. Wonder if Huck is going to kill him?

    I think that's a possibility, but if it happens it won't be this season, but part of a series finale.

    I've been known to read facebook on my phone or something while the Liv/Fitz scenes are on. The show is not about them for me...

    Agreed. Not sure if Huck, Jake, and or his "dead" wife should do the deed. So far it should be Huck, IMO.

    He is ruthless.

    It's a Shonda Rhimes show, so that sort of thing just goes with the territory. :)

    Damn it Huck, why didn't you kill Daddy dearest when you had the chance! (rant, not question).

    And who was the guy he did kill? I saw a squirrel or zoned out somewhere and didn't catch who that guy was.

    That was the guy who tried to break into the Oval Office to talk to the Pres. It seems he was either part of the group Olivia's Dad commanded or did something with Daddy, but we don't know what. We do know that he was being paid by Daddy to keep quite and it seems he no longer cares about the money and wants to talk. So Daddy decided to keep him quite permanently! But again we viewers have no idea what that guy wanted to say to the Pres!

    I thought, the guy killed was one of the guys who participated in the raid that killed the CIA operative and he is tired of keeping the secret? I may have to do a rewatch this weekend.

    I need to pay closer attention.

    Drunk Mellie was quite entertaining.

    SCANDAL is my second favorite show on air right now (ONCE UPON A TIME is the first), but I sooooo loathe the Olivia/Fitz storyline that I am totally rooting for Mellie in her "war" against Fitz.

    The "Olitz" storyline is entertaining -- especially with Jake in the mix. Prez had me chuckling when he told Jake that he won't get to save Olivia. I love, Love, LOVE all things Mellie though. Mommie Dearest was terrific telling Fitz that she has him by his big presidential %#s!
