Scandal! (The show. Not my life. I promise.)

(TV Show Spoilers Will Be Relegated To The Comment Section. If you don’t want to read Scandal Spoilers don’t scroll past the Scandal Logo on this entry.)

I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed but over there <------- on my sidebar, if you scroll down, there's a section that says "Most Shared Posts". I put that little widget/tool on my blog ages ago when I first say someone's blog post go "viral" because - I thought - I don’t want that to ever happen to me. Mainly because the more traffic you get, the more likely you get mean comments. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I am a wee-bit sensitive. (Hence all of the: DON’T BE MEAN! blog posts.) I’ve been blogging for 10 years and have only gotten 3 really mean comments and THAT IS PLENTY. An online magazine wanted to republish something I did several years ago (Something about my Dad) and I was all Aww…that’s nice…but no. I don’t trust the people you send over not to be mean. Welp! Yesterday’s blog post got a little traffic and as soon as those <---- Facebook like/share number got amount of shares/likes this blog had ever seen? I immediately started moderating comments. I didn't want even one hint of nasty from new people to ruin the great vibe I have over hear. You are all my friends, I know most of you by comment handle, I'm not going to let some newbie who popped over from Facebook ruin that. Thank God I did. Because before that number hit 1000, I had THREE people leave mean/snarky comments. The funny thing is? They were all saying the same thing basically: Approving Of This Type Of Consumerism Is What Is Wrong With The World. But here's the thing - I didn't approve of it. I didn't approve of anything. I was just pointing out A) We don't all celebrate Thanksgiving the same way and B) Don't Judge. And the second I saw that some of the newbies popping over were TOTALLY missing that point? I turned off comments. Because I don't have time to argue with everyone and it BUGS ME when people get all argumentative for no reason. And one of the comments was directed at another commenter and Oooooh....Hell No!. So! I turned comments off. My point? Thank you for being awesome and if you had time to chime in yesterday before I closed comments? THANKS! I’ll be moderating comments today too, because the traffic hasn’t slowed yet, and that means comments on THIS post will be moderated too. Sorry! The traffic will fade and we can go back to talking about Bullet Journals in peace.


SO! Do you watch Scandal? Please tell me someone watches this show! I think a lot of people last year did, but maybe some people have stopped this year because it’s gotten a little far-reaching? And while I agree – it has – the insanity is still being performed by some amazing actors so I’m totally ALL IN and last week’s episode BLEW MY MIND. I won’t post spoilers here but I’m dying to talk about last week with SOMEONE…So! We’ll have to do it in the moderated comments (Sorry!). I’ll post my thoughts as the first comment and then we’ll talk! Just remember, I’ll have to moderate yours and I’ll try to do it quickly but forgive me if I delay. You should get emailed responses if I reply to it!

  1. OH MY GOD!

    JAMES FIGURED IT OUT! Thank God. I adore James and have always felt bad for him and felt like Cyrus just totally didn’t appreciate how lucky he was with James. I’m sad because of Jame’s heartbreak, and I’m sad because Cyrus was sad (I know! He’s evil! But those tears KILLED ME.), but I’m so glad James is no longer blind to the evils his husband is capable of.

    And the end when Huck said, “I need to know who you’re working for…” and the torture stuff everywhere? EEK. I’ve never really liked Quinn so I’m not sure where I want this to go. I love Huck and I don’t want him to kill again, but Quinn is so dumb and annoys me.

    And Olivia’s Mom! WHAT????? What is going on with that storyline. Obviously she’s mental, but has she always been or is that the result of being locked away for so long? EEEEK.

    Girrrrrl!!! Call me!! I was trying to explain to Jacob after I was screaming during the last minute of the show- that they totally brought out every feeling out of me in just that minute- all to one of my favorite songs- LOVE IT!!!!

    1. I KNOW! Usually it’s only ONE twist but I was like….OH!!! James faked (or not?) the affair! OOOOHHHH!!! Huck is going to torture Quinn!! OHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Olivia’s Mom escaped! Three twists – I was FREAKING. 🙂

  3. Jenn D says:

    I love this show, I mainlined all of the other seasons in about a weekend. I’m right there with you on all of your comments. I’m sure he won’t kill Quinn but sheesh…. how dumb can she be?

    I’m curious where the story about Olivia’s mother is going.

    Cyrus got what was coming to him. He totally doesn’t appreciate his husband and using him like that is what happens when you’re a jerk who uses people (not a strong enough word).

    1. I watched the entire first seasons in about one weekend too 🙂

  4. Love scandal. I have no idea where they are going with the mother. I am thinking she was a terrorist. Also, her father is so mean. I love Jake and feel bad for him. I am always torn who I want Olivia to be with. Maybe finally Cyrus will understand his actions?

    1. I’m wondering what James’ gameplan is – will he undermine the entire “Re-Elect” attempts or is he just pissed at his husband? I can’t wait to see this play out!

  5. I think the mother was a terrorist too and the Dad had to lock her away!

  6. But if she was a terrorist, why would they hide her away for 20 years without a trial and without her daughter knowing she was alive? Anyway, do you think Eli Pope is truly evil? Or is he on the side of good? I can’t tell anymore. Does Charlie truly care for Quinn? Or is he going to follow orders and eventually kill (or try to kill) her? And I hate Fitz so much!!! He’s such a wishy washy baby. I don’t know why Olivia cares for him. Poor Mellie. Last week’s episode was a tough one.

  7. OMG! I totally LOVE that show and NEVER miss it. Mind officially blown after last week’s episode. My daughter watches it too and although she is behind on this season I forced her to watch the last two episode with me anyway because I am her house now for the holidays and I refuse to miss it. I can’t begin to tell you what this has done to her OCD, to watch these episodes without seeing the prior episodes of the season and if I try to fill her in I get shushed immediately, but yep – her mind is blown to bits too. I will have withdrawal symptoms this week. Sadface.

    1. Is it not on this week? WAH. I watch it on HULU so I don’t actually know when it’s on 🙂 I just know it pops up to tell me there’s a new episode, I guess the next day?

  8. Gretchen says:

    I’m totally a week behind (but I don’t mind spoilers), but I love that show!

  9. Angela says:

    De lurking here…Scandal is my favorite show. I always feel kinda guilty because I kinda cheer for The Prez and Liv but then I love Mellie so much. UGH. I think the mother was part of B613 and I also think that The Prez dad (I think his name is Big Jerry) was Commander of B613 at one point. Has anyone noticed that Olivia’s outfit colors always change to show what’s upcoming in the scene, sometimes she is in white, sometimes black, sometimes both? And can we talk about Phoebe from Friends? She did a great job, but she will always be Phoebe Buffay to me. Oh my goodness I could go on and on but I will stop now.

    1. Yeah – it still seemed like Phoebe to me! And I actually was rooting for Live and Jake – but I’m not sure why for that either 🙂 I think it’s because I want the Prez to not be the Prez anymore b/c he’s the WORST PREZ EVER. 🙂

  10. Heather says:

    I think maybe WILL kill Quinn and it will not be because he loves to kill (but he does because he is broken as much as he tries to fight the demons) but because I believe he wishes someone would have killed him and put him out of his misery.

    My theory about Olivia’s mom is that she tried to kill Olivia’s dad when she found out who he really was…

    As far as James, I am freaking out! Did he really cheat on Cyrus? Did he let the vice president’s hubby know that they are on to him? Can’t wait to watch tomorrow!

    1. I weirdly kinda want James to have just told the guy what was going on and come up with a plan – but I don’t know what the plan would be?! I don’t want James to have cheated, but I dont know why 🙂

  11. i love this show, my friend and i sync up our DVRs and watch and fb chat every week. after the episode where cyrus had a hitman walking behind james with a gun to his head? there is NOTHING that can make me feel bad for cyrus. about anything. he is the devil, end of story. easily, in my opinion, the most evil person on the show.

    olivia’s mom: definitely not a completely innocent victim, but not sure what’s going on there.

    mellie: starting to really like her. didn’t want to. damn.

    fitz: worthless piece of crap.

    olivia: relationship with fitz is really starting to undermine her awesomeness in my eyes. when she hooked up with him last week i was disappointed in her like she was my own real-life friend.

    quinn: not very smart.

    huck: in a strange way, perhaps the most “good” character on the show.

    i hate that it’s almost time for winter hiatus. no show this week, then one more, then none til like february or something. we are not children, this is not school, we do not need a vacation from our television addictions!


  12. Huck and Quinn!!! !!!!!! I don’t really have words, I’m just sitting here kinda making open-close fish face mouth. What’s going to happen???

    I fist-pumped for James. Here’s the thing… I kind of like Cyrus, but I think in the ‘Bad Guy that draws you in’ kind of way. He’s smart and intriguing. But that was a really low move, even for him, and I’m glad James put it together and hurt him. I suspect that he didn’t actually cheat, I just don’t think he was interested, but he schemed a plan to hurt Cyrus personally and professionally, knowing professionally would probably be the deeper cut. James is waaaaay smarter than Cyrus gives him credit for.

    I’m really curious about Liv’s mom. He kept referring to her as a prisoner. Did she find out something about b613 worthy of imprisonment? Does she have secrets they want and that is why she is still alive? And did it sound like they kind of had a deal, that he promised her Liv would be cared for?

    I love Jake and I love Liv and Jake. And I actually like Fitz and Mellie together. It’s dysfunctional, but there’s still something about them. (And HOLY CRAP Mellie and Fitz’s dad!!!!!! Did her pregnancy announcement mean what I thought it meant?!?!??)

  13. Erin and I watch EVERY WEEK!! She won’t let me watch without her!!!! Can’t wait till next week!!!!!

  14. Oh my gosh, you could start a weekly post on Scandal and I would be there to join in I only have a few Scandal-watching friends IRL. And last week?!? I literally yelled at the computer screen at each twist. Love this show!!
