Scandal “The Fluffer”

untitled

Well this episode the ish definitely hit the fan!
Olivia and Papa Pope have joined forces! Although it is unclear if he is helping because of his bitterness that he is no longer Command, or because he has other secret motives. Either way, he holds the key in locating where B613 funds come from. Their only choice is really to trust him.
Olivia sends Abby in to do her job for the President, but the tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife. Andrew and Mellie’s affair is still fresh and nobody is in the mood to see a new face. Andrew professes his love for Mellie, but later chooses power when given an ultimatum by Olivia. Losing Andrew definitely sends Mellie over the edge causing her to give Fitz a slap that was long overdue. As much as I am a sucker for the Fitz/Olivia affair, I really wasn’t about to sit back and let Fitz play the victim. I mean, how long has he been sleeping with Olivia? Now the tables turn and he wants to play victim?
The nerve of Jeannine Locke writing a whole book of presidential lies about an affair we all know she never had. Yes, the very same Jeannine that sat on Olivia’s couch and cried a river because she couldn’t believe she was being accused of sleeping with the president… guess she doesn’t mind too much now. Haven’t people learned by now you do not want to be an enemy of Olivia Pope??
Apparently, Cyrus couldn’t handle Olivia’s one day absence because he tries to leak the story of Sally’s daughter’s abortion, which later backfires. Reston is later taken out of the race when a video of him visiting his loving wife and being not so loving is leaked making the run for President now between Fitz and Sally.
Olivia is sent in by Huck to seduce Jake right out of his pants and get her hands on B613’s information which she pulls off flawlessly. Meanwhile, Charlie and Quinn (a relationship I’m still not comfortable with) are given a new mark… Mama Pope. Maya, Maria, or whatever she is going by these days, is working on something big with Adnad and Claire… and when she invites herself to a Sunday dinner with Eli and Olivia she warns them both that she is not to be messed with. It’s obvious she is telling the truth since she is wanted by every government in USA but can strut into a restaurant and have a drink like it’s nobody’s business, and it’s not a coincidence Harrison called at that very moment to tell Olivia Claire had been killed when trying to cross Mama Pope.
We later find out the “something big” is a bomb, but we never find out where the bomb is going because B613 is shut down by Pope and Associates. The episode ends with Jake rushing into the office and grabbing Olivia by the neck (which she tweeted was in fact a stunt double) and telling her she just killed the President!
I am on the edge of my seat! I know I’m not the only one. I guess it safe to say the season finale… is gonna go out with a bang! What do you think is going to happen next? Are we going to see the end of President Grant because of Olivia’s decision to shut down B613? Did she do the right thing? Do you think B613 is an asset now that we have a little understanding of what it does? What do you think the season finale will bring? Leave me a comment, I want to know what you think!
