    :D

    Rarely do my Scandal predictions pan out.

    Quinn pulled the letter opener out of her boyfriend's neck hastening his demise. Now she kills the guard and leaves her DNA everywhere. I like that crazy woman though.

    Mellie's backstory was incredible. That rape scene was hard to watch. She has been through a lot with Fitz but I liked how he defended her with the press.

    Momma Pope was locked up for 20+ years? WTH?

    Wow, Mellie is one tough woman. I want to hate her, but I just can't. And yes, good on Fitz for standing up for her.

    OMG, Daddy dearest is just so evil. Wonder what Mama Pope did for him to lock her up?

    And yes, Quinn is an idiot. Maybe Huck will just kill her cause she's too stupid to be allowed to live.

    Did the Pres not know that the head of the super secret assassin squad (shades of Kill Bill!) was Olivia's Dad?

    The baby we see today is not from the pregnancy that may or may not have been conceived by Fitz's father. That pregnancy took place many (8?) years ago and ended in (as far as we know) miscarriage.

    The baby they do have was conceived at some point during Fitz's presidency, well after his father had died.

    Ah... I forgot about those kids. I only remembered Millie talking about a miscarriage in an interview during the Presidential campaign.

    Prior to this episode, I really didn't like Mellie very much. This changed my whole view of her.

    So much happened in the last episode that I need a second watching to process it. Olivia has strange parents. Good thing she became a "Gladiator in a Suit" instead of a criminal mastermind.

    Loving Mellie, Jake, and James more and more,

    Just finished viewing YOLO. Whoa, Cyrus is just so evil. I almost felt sorry for him, but not quite.

    And Mommy Dearest is a terrorist? And Daddy had her locked up to protect Liv from her? Really?? So why was the plane shot down?

    And Huck and Quinn? Wow, that was so creepy.

    I just couldn't believe that Quinn, knowing Huck as she does, wouldn't just tell him everything she knows right away, before he even gets the duct tape out.

    My thoughts on that are that the Mom planted the bomb on the plane and then somehow got herself removed from the plane so that she'd live. The B613 guy/government found out about it at some point thereafter and had Fitz/military shoot the plane down and arrest the mom. Dad never told Olivia about it because he didn't want Olivia to know mom is a terrorist.

    Of course, I could be wrong and it could be that Mom was taken off the plane and arrested right then and there. The government just didn't know there was a bomb on the plane and only found out after the plane took off. The only thing is that it seemed from the phone call that mom thought she was going to get to London or where ever she was going. That's why I think option 1 is better and she came off the flight on her own and was going to get to where she was going on another flight.

    I figure it has to be one of those two options.

    The 2-part mid-season finale left me shaking my head.

    Papa is out and Jake is in?
    Mama forced the US to commit terrorism and now runs the DC streets.
    Sally has some crazy temper.
    Quinn is one strong (and stupid) woman. She has a few teeth snatched from her head and runs around as if nothing happened.
    Abby has some magic going with her boyfriend.

    I kind of had a hard time with Daddy saying that the all the stuff he knew was a higher pay grade than the Pres. Yeah sure the Pres is not always told everything but its not because he doesn't have a high enough clearance but more so that he just can know every detail about everything the govt is doing. I have to assume that the Pres of the US has a high enough clearance to know anything about the country's national security.

    I've been watching from the beginning and its a fun show to watch although mostly unbelievable (as is most fun to watch shows!).

    What didn't make sense after all of that was that the president was able to remove Papa Pope from that position and replace him with someone he wanted. How stupid does that make Papa Pope look to dress down the person who could have him fired.

    Not sure Daddy will stay fired. Wonder what Huck will think when he finds out that Jake is now Command?

    Sally killing her hubby seemed very out of character.

    Not much on the show is believable, but I love the characters.

    WOW! Is this not one of the best casts (of this size) ever assembled for a TV show or what!!

    Every performance by all but a very few of the actors in the winter finale was phenomenal, as was the material written for them. (regardless of what is believable or not)
