YOLO and OMG: Scandal Episode 309 Recap

The last episode of Scandal two weeks ago left off after Mama Pope emerged from the shadows to her daughter, who was shell-shocked at seeing the mother she thought has been dead for the past 22 years. I was a-scared tonight because I just knew there’d be no chill to be had in this episode, especially since it was part 1 of the winter finale, which ends next Thursday. All our fears had base. THIS EPISODE, DOE! Whoooooo! I just… let’s just get into it.

YOLO – Huck has Quinn nekkid, tied up and with duct tape over her mouth. He says he’s not gonna kill her since she’s family and he loves her buttttttttt he’s gonna go all dentist rogue and snatch out a couple of her teeth. She’s begging for mercy when the phone rings. It’s Liv, who says “She’s alive. My mother. She’s not dead. She’s here. She’s here in my apartment.” Aw shit.  Huck tells her to remove her phone battery and head to the safe house. SAVED BY THE CALL, QUINN! Or so she thought. Huck decides that he has time to extract one tooth, talmbout “YOLO.” HAAAAAA!!!

Politics Before God – VP Sally is ready with her resignation letter but Leo says the only way she can go into the race and win is if she says she’s pro-choice. Langston the Bible Thumper says she can’t and he threatens to walk. He says “Politics over God” and she swallows her values and agrees. Leo is the newest goon on the scene and he’s gonna be troubo. I can feel it in my shondo, Shonda!

Pillow Talk – Cyrus is lying in bed as James writes on his computer and he’s all heartbroken at the fact that his boo got it in with Daniel Douglas. Meanwhile, James keeps dropping these double entendres about how him and the VP’s hubby have business to finish. Oop.

Tracking Pope – Flashback to Little Olivia eating cereal as Mama Pope gets ready to leave for a trip. Lil Liv is listening to Michael Jackson’s “Ben” when her mom pulls out the headphones and tells her “I love you, Olivia.” Present day Liv is sitting in the corner almost rocking #baggingfoaf at the safe house where the Gladiators are wondering what is happening. Abby is looking for answers and Mama Pope says she found out that Rowan was a goon and was gonna blow the whistle in London and them he caught her and locked her up for 22 years. She says she escaped him and Huck and Jake jump to action. They figure she has a tracking chip in her and they slice her back open.

Charlie and a B613 dude are holding a tablet and they show up to the safe house to find the tracking chip on the table (and no one there). The Gladiators BOUNCED right in time. Papa Pope is asking EVERYTHING to be shut down. He wants them to find that lady by all means!

On the Run – They are now on the run with Mama Pope and the Gladiators are now using burner phones. Avon Barksdale is somewhere like “I did it first.” The goal is to fly Maya to Hong Kong at the first chance they get. Liv asks about Quinn and Huck says she’s busy (mmhmmm). Our girl is tied up next to her own extracted tooth.

Abby and Harrison are in the OPA office and the place has been ransacked and ran through. Some lady shows up to get a folder from him and she refers to Harrison as “H” and is making these intense stares at him. WHO IS THIS HUSSY AND WHY IS SHE EYEING MY MAN?!? Anyway… she says “Adnan Salif says hello” and he’s back. AW CRAPPPP!!! Also to be mentioned: Abby made a reference to Harrison not having a mom. Brolivia Pope, perhaps.

Red Hot Mellie – Mellie’s in her fire engine red suit again, asking Cyrus what happened with the Daniel Douglas thing and he’s not giving her info. She says “It’s time to stop holding. Play the cards already.”

Pope Ladies Chat – Olivia returns with breakfast for her mama as Huck bandages her wrists. He leaves and Mama Pope wants to get to know her babygirl better. Maya’s hair is LAIDT! That fierce hair is genetic, because after 22 years in prison, I’d have NO edges. Anywho, Liv’s mom tells her that she imagined the type of life her daughter would have after all these years. A dentist husband named Ray, and a son named Sam but ”there just doesn’t seem to be a lot of laughter in your life.” Mamas be knowing, man. But she threw in a jab bout how she wished Liv would have “more of me in you than your father.”

Battle of Heros – Huck tells Jake that no matter where they fly Maya, she’ll always be in the reach of Command. True, but what if Rowan was dead? Jake proposes that they murk him but how do you do that to the Grand Goon? Well, he goes to see his frenemy the President. Jake tells President Ghost that Mama Pope is alive and when he proposes that they “terminate” Daddy Goon, Fitz says “nawl.” He can’t kill his Bae’s Pops. He already thought he killed her mama. State Farm Ballard goes in and tells his ex-bro that he ain’t have his back in Operation Remington and he clearly ain’t got it now. “There are only 2 people that matter in this world and that is Olivia and yourself.“ OOOOOHHH! Jake and Fitz and this battle over Olivia’s love… bless their hearts for tryna win her heart. Oh also: yes, Fitz is B613. “You want to be a hero. You want to be HER hero. But word to the wise, she doesn’t need one.”

Hero 1 Hero 2

Quinn is still tied up and she’s looking for a way to untie herself. She better use them skills Huck taught her.

James’ Game – James visits Cyrus at work to let him know him and Daniel are meeting that evening to finish what they started. He is LOVING this game he’s playing because for once, he has the upperhand. Rub it ALL the way in, Novak! He even says it’s too bad that Cy won’t be at home because their night coulda “been a threesome.” All the innuendo, James! When he exits Beene’s office, he runs into Mr. Douglass, who begs him not to embarrass him by including his “temptation” in the feature. “I am a man. I’m not gay.” Those two things aren’t mutually exclusive, Daniel “Trapped in the Closet” Douglas. He cites his stature as a man of faith (based on the passive aggressive warning he just received from his wife).

The Prophecy – Maya Pope tells Olivia that she knows that running won’t do much to save her because as long as Rowan is alive, she cannot be for long. But she doesn’t mind because she was able to lay eyes on her baby. This is like the prophecy in Harry Potter. “Neither can live while the other survives.” Who’s Voldemort and who’s Harry?

Mama Pope run

Blow Up Bros – Jake and Huck are tailing Command and they see him enter a building. When they walk in, they shoot into a small room and the room blows up, killing a dude but not THE dude they were looking for. WOMP! Charlie and Daddy Goon are in a car together and as the sugar assassin celebrates, Rowan says “If you think I enjoy killing, then you must not know me very well . Condone? At times. Accept as a necessary evil. But I get no enjoyment out of ending a life.” Oh word?? We’re slowly learning that he might not be the heartless goon we think he is. He tells him to find Quinn.

Huck vs. Baby Huck – Quinn is tryna use shattered glass to cut her duct tape off when Huck shows up. She’s BEGGING and he ain’t tryna hear it because her betraying Liv deserves punishment. Another tooth bites the dust.

No Fly – Harrison got Maya a passport and birth certificate and all, and Liv handles some business in Chinese (which she’s fluent in. Heyyy!). All is well EXCEPT Rowan has Maya on the no-fly list and her offense is listed as treason, with a fake name but her picture is right there. Abby goes to her Bae, David, to pull some strings.

Mistake and Crossing – VP Sally drops her resignation letter on Fitz’s desk before it goes public the next day and he does not take it well. He tells her that she’s making a huge mistake and he’s gonna “spend the rest of my life reminding you.” And she’s basically like “COME AT ME, BRO!” Welp.

Pimps Up, Beene Down – Cyrus runs home and is breathing all hard just to find James in bed writing. He thought he’d surely be getting the business from Daniel and he can’t hide his jealousy any longer. James claps back at him and says  “I think next time, we should go over what type of rentboy I’m supposed to play… I cannot figure out why you’d pimp out your own husband… you used me like a cheap whore!… You have ruined us! You are a gay man who is going out of his way to shame another gay man for being in the closet.” The library is OPEN cuz James is READING! He says he wants a divorce and him and phantom baby Ella are leaving. And when Cy tells him that he has photo proof, he’s shocked. Which I don’t understand because why didn’t he figure that out???

Cyrus is summoned to the Oval Office, where Mellie and Fitz are waiting for him. President Ghost gets all in his face and yells at him to handle this VP Sally thing. He storms out, leaving Mellie to witness Cyrus Beene crumble into tears.

I’M NOT USED TO BEENE TEARS! I didn’t know how to feel about it. First Lady goes “It hurts until it doesn’t.” If no one else knows the feeling of love betrayal, she knows. Cyrus is having the worst day ever.

Hey Bae – David tells Abby he can’t remove “Marie Wallace” from the no-fly list because even inquiring about the name triggered all types of security. After learning this, Olivia excuses herself and sits outside. She rings up the only person who can make her feel better and she tells him she just needed to hear his voice. Fitz is on the other end ready to save Liv when all she needed was someone to vent too. Because sometimes, you just wanna talk to Bae.

Voice Scandal gif

He says that he will fix this, and it’s not a question. It’s a statement. When they hang up, President Ghost places a call to the Pentagon. OH SNAP!

No Steak But Beef – Charlie shows up to Quinn’s place and finds her tied up and bloody. He unties her and she wraps a towel around her and starts crying. Real goons don’t weep because a couple of teeth are missing.  Him: “That’s against the rules. Suck it back in! So, you don’t eat steak anymore!” HA! Quinn, you were playing with the devil. What did you think was gonna happen? You needed to have a few teeth missing. She looks at Charlie, drops the towel and they start going AT IT. Because when you just finish getting tortured, you make the secks, according to #50ShadesofQuinn. O__O

Dear Aunt Sally – Cyrus rolls into VP Sally’s office and drops the pictures of Daniel and James on her desk. He tells her to revoke her resignation and gets surprised when she tells him that he TRIED IT! She’s basically tells him that she knows her husband is a hoe but Cy’s hubby is also in the pics so he ain’t gon leak them. There are no dambs left to give by the VP. A defeated Cyrus slinks out her office. When he gets back to his office, he calls his husband and asks for his forgiveness, saying no one will ever see the pics. LIES. James is sitting on their bed with packed luggage, not knowing what to do with himself.

Wonderland – Charlie and Quinn are headed into Wonderland, and he’s all “you’re the best girlfriend I’ve ever had.” DANG! Y’all go together already? Simps.

Ben – The Gladiators have chartered a private military jet to take Maya Lewis-Pope to Hong Kong, and they’re all at the private airport to see her off. When Mama Pope and Liv part ways without touching, Abby tells her “That is not a goodbye. You go and you hug her right now in case you never get to again.” Iunno when she became this reasonable but I like Abby. As she watches her mother walk to the plane, she calls her name and runs to her and they hug. HUG YOUR EVIL MAMA TIGHT, LIV! HUG HER!

Liv Mama hug 1 Liv Mama hug 2

“Ben” is playing as this is happening, and it heightens the emotions of the scene. E’em though it’s about a rat. Maya gets on the plane and Liv gets a flashback to the day her mother left 22 years before. Right after she left, the house phone rang and the person goes “I’m looking for Marie. Your mom. Is she there?” and Lil Liv says no, cuz her mama’s name is Maya.

As the plane leaves, Olivia calls Huck and asks what the name of the terrorist on the no-fly list was. The one Rowan used for Maya and he says “Marie Wallace.” She says “My father was trying to protect me this whole time. He didn’t want me to know what she did, who she is. He’s not the monster. She is.” OMGGGGGGGGGG!!! MAMA POPE WAS A RAT THIS WHOLE TAHM AND THAT’S WHY BEN HAS BEEN PLAYING! AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!

Huck then says “we got a problem” and on his radar, a yellow circle is moving. Could it be a car is headed the direction of the private airport? He remembers that as he tortured Quinn, she know that every time she gave him some good info, she kept one more tooth. Well, her and Charlie are in front of Command and she says she has info for him, but she needs the tape of her killing the security guard before she can tell him. Her right hand is in her pocket, and it’s holding a syringe, similar to the one she used to kill that dude.

Meanwhile, Cyrus gets a phone call from VP Sally, who says “I have committed a sin.” There’s a stabbed body next to her desk and it looks like it’s her husband Daniel Douglas.

VP Sally 1 VP Sally 2



Sooooo Maya Lewis is really Marie Wallace and she’s a terrorist. This whole time, SHE’S BEEN the Grand goblin that Rowan was trying to neutralize. Her being behind bars for the past 22 years was probably best. BUT remember that on Scandal, NO ONE wears the white hat. Daddy Goon might not be the Grand Goblin but he is no hero either. Also: dang, Liv should have ALLLLLLL the trust issues in the entire world. She shouldn’t even trust her own shadow because look at the mess she came from. LOOK AT IT.

Ok so now about Quinn. What info does she have to give Daddy Pope? And more importantly, is she there because that’s how she stopped Huck from having her out here looking like Grandpa Simpson (just all toothless)? Did she agree to “terminate” him for Huck? I see the syringe she was holding and I highly doubt that she’ll succeed in killing Command. Her taking him out will be like how (IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE WIRE, SKIP TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH HERE) Omar got killed by a little boy in a store. Survived assassins to get taken out by a mouse. I’d be outchea doing the Carlton crawl of it happens like that.

Carlton Floor Crawl gif

Who was the jezebel flirting with Harrison? Well, clearly it seems she used to work with him when he was working with Ahnan Salif? Also… I love how we keep getting these TINY bites of info about him. His story will be very important in the 2nd half of the season. I’m just ready for that!

But let’s talk about VP Sally. SHE KILLED HER HUSBAND?!? Those pics she saw of him and James really enraged her soul. Plus, she don lost her religion messing with Leo. For her to call Cy talmbout “I committed a sin” like she was at confessional, doe. YOU KILLED AN INNOCENT DUDE! On the sin scale, I’m pretty sure that’s a 20 on a scale of 1-10. But of all people, why did she call Cy? Also, James looked like he was about to be swayed to stay but when he finds out that Daniel is deader than Quinn’s ability to eat tough foods, he’ll know. Well, at this point, how many examples does James need to realize that he’s married to the worst person ever?

WHOOOOOO!!! In the preview of next week’s show, we see Rowan Pope tied to a chair being circled by President Ghost. Uh oh. Lemme find out Fitz is about to handle it for real. I just know that Next week’s #Scandal winter finale is going to SLAY US ALL. And we can’t do NOTHING bout it til February 27, 2014. Gladiators weep.

So whatcha’ll think Mama Pope is about to be about? GLADIATORS ROAR in the comments!

      Sally uses the Lord when it’s convenient for her. Didn’t she get her teenaged daughter to have an abortion to save face? That sounds very pro-choice to me. And she threw Billy Chambers under the bus, remember?

      Sally is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    Thank you. That’s all I got because I’m out of theories. I’m guessing momma Pope won’t make it to Hong Kong and papa Pope will live but that’s about it. Oh and I’m hoping Quinn is working as a double (triple?) Agent. Meaning I hope she’s doing a David and playing both sides but ultimately for OPA.

      Oh that lick raped my eyes and will forever haunt my soul. Poor Huck, he tried to have a friend, someone he could teach and be normal with, but of course Ms. Can’t Get Right had to muck it up. I still want to hug Huck but even I wasn’t ready for that lick. And that scene where Quinn gives it up to Charlie, that’s why Quinn stay losing and is the forever captain of Team Bad Decisions. Who feels like sexy times after you been tortured and dentally abused? Dumb ass Quinn that’s who.

        And yes, I have been forever traumatized by that tear lick. And how Huck was extra happy to be torturing family. I used to think he was a protector but now I think but Papa Goblin was right. That man is unstable.

        I think Quinn was seducing Charlie as a way to win him over. It appears that she made a deal with Huck to act as a double(triple?) agent with Charlie in order to get close to Eli/Rowan. If it was a choice between losing more teeth with no anesthetic and sexy times with Charlie, I might drop towel too.

    This is why we don’t elect single presidents. Cause a guy would free a terrorist for his mistress without fact checking, cause he thinks he’s in love. A guy who’s been married 30 years may or may not turn on the side table lamp to keep his wife from breaking her ankle in the middle of the night. Fitz!

      Anywho I guess she knows Cyrus trained Liv so he’s ultimately a fixer, however I hope he doesn’t save her and she burns in political flames. Throwing Jesus up whenever it’s convenient even though you’ve did so much dirt.

    So this episode started early and just dove right in with Huck in all his Serial Killer Glory and I was afraid. I was also pissed at Quinn for being so damn dumb that he had to unleash the dragon on her silly ass. I loathe Quinn have from the beginning.. Sidebar my husband was standing in front of the TV during the scene and I may or may not have yelled at him. -___-

    Jake read Fitz for the fifty shades of filth he is and for once I was here for it.

    I am team James all the damn way. All the double entendres and his speeches to Sally’s hubby and Cy I wanted to clap for a ninja. I don’t feel bad for Cy not one Iota.

    I knew Mama Pope was crazy and there was more to the story so I actually wasn’t shocked by the reveal.

    Fitz tried it when he came for Cy and I was livid like he pimped his husband like a West Coast Customs ride and you’re mad. Boy sit down!!!!!

    Quinn will not kill daddy goon cause she is a fk up period.

    VP Sally killed her husband!!!!! OmG I was like what the hell is going on. I knew someone was gonna die, thought it would be her. I didn’t expect that at all. I was unable to deal. My cans were unable to be processed at that time. I can’t wait for the finale shonda slayed. I love this show I don’t need it to be realistic I just need it to juicy with lots of twists and turns that’s what I am here for.

    Thank you for the great recap! Last night’s episode was amazing, can’t wait till next week. Sally can say goodbye to her presidential dreams, Cy is going to have such fun with this. I suspected that someone would die but Sally killing her husband? James & Cy bedroom scene was so great, great writing & superb acting. And my Olitz heart is so happy, that phone call said it all, loved it. I wonder how evil Mama Pope is, guess will find out soon.

    Loved your recap, as always you make it plain and had me dying laughing. When Sally sold her “soul” for the presidency, seeing those pics of her gay hubby, just pushed her too far. She just finished giving up her core beliefs and she couldn’t take it anymore.
    Mama Shonda keeps slaying everyone all the time. I am not going to be able to breath next week, much less wait all the way to dang near March.

    I knew Mama Pope was a traitor and the other T-word!!! She has been exposed. I think the storyline will go down something like this. Mama Pope was a traitor to her country. Her plan was to hop on that flight with things that were going to tear UP the Heathrow and the people in it……it would have been the largest Attack of that time! Had it been carried out by Mama Pope the MONSTER!!!!!!

    Papa Pope being the head of B6-13, and responsible for keeping the Republic safe, was devastated to find out he would have to off his baby mama b/c of her traitorous nature and ways. So he did what he had to do, take his wife off the plane (b/c at some point he still loved her) and then keep her as a prisoners.

    Because there were things that cause havoc on the plane, with a timer, they had no choice but to take it down. Thus, Operation Remington was born. So, Fitz and Co. aren’t super monsters because while they killed hundreds, they saved thousands and the Republic.


    I think.

    I could be wrong, but that’s my tale of Mama Pope and this whole situation.

    Sally will continue to be the VP because she committed a hate crime of passion. Cy will help clean it up b/c now this gives him the upper hand.

    This episode had me off the couch going NUTS!!!!!!

      You are exactly correct about Mama Pope. Its like people are forgetting that Jerry Fitz told mellie the story
      ..which included the detail about the bomb and its effect on world relations. (Or it might have been someone else its so much to remember but i know that was revealed) so when mama said she was going to blow the cover on rowan and take livi with her i knew it was a lie. Because no regular woman would be locked up 22 years and just know how to take out a man while she is strapped to a bed. That requires training and when she lied to livi i knew it. What i wasnt expecting was her realizing she was a terrorist… whoa

    This show was so off the chain, that seeing Holy Sally over a dead body wasn’t even the ‘wow’ moment of the episode.

    I loved Mellie reaching out to Cyrus once she realized the cheating.

    I can’t believe Huck actually tortured Quinn.

    Mama Pope is a goon.

    She is THE GOON.


    I’m still thinking about it.

    Poor Olivia…she never had a chance.

    Cyrus and James are one of the best written couples….that they’re gay is incidental. Once James mentioned Divorce, Cyrus was like, ‘ oh no you won’t’. I’m on James’ side, but I love Cyrus and James. ..this is just a bad spell for them.

    Somebody please un-confuse me, did James really have sex with Daniel Douglas then? I was thinking he knew Cy would be spying so the pictures were just part of his plot to get back at Cy, but apparently he didn’t know about the photos. Another thing I’m confused about, what did Jake mean about op. Remington when speaking with Fitz, who really shot the plane down?

      I took Jake from state farm(JFSF) to mean that they were flying the mission together. JFSF got sucked in with Daddy Goon (DG) Fitz was able to continue his life and become POTUS, probably due to his Daddy the senator. Sound likes JFSF is mad he ain’t got Fitz white privilege.

      Initially, I thought that James might have set Cyrus up for pictures, too. And that nothing REALLY happened between he and Daniel. But then I had to rethink it: why would Daniel put himself in that situation? This is a man who is in the closet. He would never pretend to be gay just to help James further his cause. James, a reporter, having photo evidence that could be used against him, The Future First Gentleman? Nah.

      James nor Daniel knew they were being watched. James slept with Daniel simply to spite Cyrus because he was sick of being used.

      Fitz shot that plane down. He’s never denied doing that. And because Jake was his good friend and fellow officer, he thus got sucked into B613 as well. Because Fitz would’ve never become Governor or President if he appeared on any military intelligence lists as the person who pulled the trigger. B613 helped his political career, on the low-low. Rowan got more pull than Cyrus in Washington. I wouldn’t be surprised if Defiance was his idea that he brought to Cyrus.

      YEEEESSSSS!!! There is a WHOLE LOT MORE to that Operation Remington story between Fitz and Jake, though I do think Fitz shot the plane down. It’s sort of been established that Fitz was a navy pilot (plus he told Liv last episode that he was ordered to shoot the plane down, and Jake was a Seal (I think). But there was something that has Jake’s drawers up in a bunch. He’s the WORST spy EVER!!!! Who goes to kill Command without a proper plan, and why kill Command without all the facts ready?? I was with Fitz on this one, this time (I’m not always) because he acted a little more thoughtful and mature (well at that point of not offing his boo’s Dad just so), even though we do know they wanted to just drop their pants and have Lauren come in with a ruler and take measurements re:Liv. Plus I don’t get why Jake is trying to play that his intentions ain’t about Liv deep down. At least Fitz is clear about his, but Jake is all like “I got tricked into B613.” Errr…How come Mr State Farm? I thought it was the Prez that took out 329 people. So what were you doing on ground mission?

      Mama Pope, Mama Pope, Mama Pope (in my best 752 cantation). Good Heavens woman!!!! And they GAVE HER A GUN (Oh she of wrist eating glory).

        He could have been tricked into it I mean look what happen to Quinn. However I think his intentions are not only about Liv but also about revenge. This mad did also lock him in the hole, same with Huck. Fitz got out scott free his intentions are more about Liv than anyone else’s he just doesn’t want any single man to be Liv’s hero.

        Well Jake explains how he got “tricked” into B613. He said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time trying to serve his country and he gets mixed up in BOYFitz’ political mess and voila. Jake has been in B613 for 22 years. BOYFitz always has to have someone cleaning up his mess, Mellie, Olivia, Cyrus, his Daddy, etc. But ya know, I’m thinking Jake is still working with PapaPope.

      Fitz was never at Operation Remington. He was over at some other place (I forget exact location) shooting down Moma Pope’s plane. Jerry had it seem like Fitz was with Jake being heroic to cover up for the fact that he was responsible for the lost of civilian lives. Jake being military & probably already B613 was made to corroborate Fitz’s role in order to give him an alibi.

    Ok don’t block me or nothing but I have my own little recap…

    James! HE DID IT!!! (dora the explorer voice) Yes Lawd. Cy got what was coming to him. Then when he said he was leaving…Cy the beast unleashed on his @rse. I was on twitter going off. James gonna be Ms. Celie mad from here on out. When he told gayclosethusband that gay folks think GAY folks are GAY whew I was like DAAAAAMN….let them balls drop James! Then the look he gave gayclosethusband AFTER he walked off was pure QUEEN. YESSS!

    Cyrus Bean! Why you got a case of the sads? Why you cry and lose your Goon Super Powers like that. ion like that one bit. Mellie tried to warn you, but you are a powerful white man and you thought James wouldn’t give up that booty to another…welp you got pictures to prove he let that man “go deep” BWAAAH. Now stop that crying! There’s no crying in GOONVILLE BISH!

    Sally…I said she was going to lose her shit. I could tell by the look on her face when she peeped those photos…she was having none of the booty play shenanigans…she went in and gave ALL when she checked Cy! LOL he looked like he was going to cry again!

    Quinn YOU AIN’T GOT THE ANSWERS QUINN!! YESSS LAWD! You earned ever one of them popped molars bish, you ain’t no Gladiator. How dare you betray those who have SAVED your simple a$s. BUT since you were willing to kill (to save yo own @$s) you can come back in the fold, but gotta stay on the porch, you can’t come in the house.

    Huck…my boo thang my heart. You done good. Now let me rock you in my nekkid heaving bosom. Oh the way you whispered in Simple simon’s (quinn) ear. Oh when you told her it wasn’t about you, but she had betrayed Liv…oh your loyalty is oh so enticing. Next time it’s cold water bleach enemas and removal of pinky toes (cause we know she can’t stay the fuk out of trouble).

    Abby/David I like you two, but stay in the background until Abby gets a scene with her wife beating Ex.

    Harrison you was real shook with prettybrowngirlcovertchick still have no currs about you…maybe in February the month of the Negro. Find a corner have a seat

    Jake from state farm you really wearing the Desperation by Kelvin Decline huh…find Harrison sit on his lap you don’t get yo own chair bish

    Liv…really thought she was going to start the Huck 752 rocking in the corner

    Mellie…I miss you and your goonnery come back soon

    Fitz…you cute…that’s all I got.

    MAMA GOON!!! I knew it…she was setting Liv up from the get go. Played her like a fine tuned horn.

    I know Liv was traumatized but why didn’t she put it together sooner, yo mama was gonna snitch but instead of killing with the OTHER 200+ people on the plane her Goon Daddy locks her up? That don’t make no sense! He needed her alive for SOMETHING…

    Maya/Marie somehow knew more about Liv’s life than she let on. Like she had friends who are B613 and would know about the tracking chip so it could be removed. Like the President is her boo thang so he could pull some strings to get her out of the country. (Maybe that’s another reason why Eli/Rowan was trying to stop the Olitz thing.) After all, someone is still out there trying to dig up info on Remington. I just wonder who could’ve given Mama Pope the info to work with…(Jake? I don’t want it to be him, but I’m sure it’s someone we know, and he’s the only person who makes sense.)

      Good point. Obviously there were handlers attending Moma Pope, bringing her food and such while she was in prison. She only needed one lackey to swayed into slipping her info. Once she found out her daughter was the President’s mistress perhaps she saw a way to finally escape.

    Recap on point as always! Now I get why Prez Ghost didn’t tell Liv about Operation Remington because it FAILED … Mama Pope is still alive. He’s told her everything else except info about that mission.

    So when Liv asked Fitz to help Mama Pope escape in a “I just wanted to hear your voice” kind of way, he jumped at the chance to finish what he didn’t do 22 years ago. I don’t think Mama Pope’s gonna make it to Hong Kong.

      Operation Remington did not fail.

      The big secret is that pilot that is listed as flying (the funeral that President Ghost showed up at) was NOT the pilot. The real pilot that shot down the plane was President Ghost.

      Records were changed &/or at this point everyone involved is dead. Jake was on the same ship as Fitz so he knew that the records were faked since Fitz was present on the ship as he is listed as being on that day.

      Fitz’s dad was mad because that kind of secret mission always comes out and as his son with aspirations for the Presidency Fitz should have never been involved in something like that.

      Fitz Dad was the Senator in charge of the plane crash investigation which is why Fitz’s name is NOT on the internal report as the pilot that shot plane down and the “official” report issued to public said the flight went down due to mechanical difficulties. Whatever strings were pulled ended up with Fitz discharged from the service, going to law school and down the road to the Presidency and Jake being sucked in the separate cell of B613 (which is why he and Huck never knew about each other).

      When Jake took on the job of watching Olivia and found out afterwards that she and the President were seeing each other all his insecurities and anger over the President came back. The President has the life and the woman that he wants and can’t have. THATS why he’s mad.

        All of the record-changing and pilot-switching that happened was to cover up the operation, but was not the mission of the operation itself. IMHO, the objective of Operation Remington was to take out a dangerous terrorist, which would be Mama Pope in this instance, and that did not happen. So Remington was a failure … and all because Rowan/Eli/Command spirited Mama Pope off of the plane before it was shot down. That’s why Fitz and Jake want to take him out so badly because he ruined the Remington’s objective.

          Objective wasn’t to take out the terrorist but to stop attack Maya/Marie was planning. The people she worked with don’t know she’s alive and as far as they know she went down with the plane. The other lives lost when plane went down were collateral damage to cover up that fact. If it was known Maya/Marie was arrested the others involved could have gone through with whatever the plot was. Fitz and Jake were soldiers then they didn’t have a say in anything just took orders.

        Operation Remington was the name of the mission that Fitz and Jake were on. Jake was on the ground and Fitz was written down as the pilot but in all actuality he was off shooting down the plane that Mama Pope was supposed to be on. Operation Remington was not a fail.

    The fact that Abby was acting as Liv’s version of Iyanla was too funny. “Liv – hug your mutha! HUG HER BELOVED!!!”

    When they showed Quinn’s tooth just chilling off on the side like a co-star, I was cracking up! I bet she NEVER thought she would be getting the Huck Special of the Day.

    When Jake was in talking to Fitz in uniform, all I could think was “Where is your shave ‘Jake from State Farm?'” Being former military, those details bother me so much…

    When Cyrus showed Sally the pics, I noticed her left eye started twitching and I knew then somebody was gonna get a beatdown. Here she was riding high, and her husband was out riding him, mmhmm.

    That is her husband dead on the floor, because they showed them staging him in the previews.

    I did enjoy Mellie being semi-sympathetic to Cyrus before telling him to man up and put on his big girl manties.

    I couldn’t even get settled on the couch good before I slid the hell off when Huck went ape shit and started drooling at the prospect of ripping out Quinn’s teeth I mean it was like a switch flipped and Huck went all the way the hell oft… He kept telling her goofy ass not to play wit it and she found herself buck naked laying on tarp praying for her simple ass life… I stand for Abby demanding answers like where the hell mamapope been at all this time?? and po lil tink tink Olivia rocking in the corner like she was sittin in that jail cell just rockin… I am sorry Jake is the most none getting shit done spy I have ever seen and why the hell you blaming Fitz for your induction into B613?? This aint boy scouts… fitz didnt sign you up for shit.. that was a bitch made moving blaming someone else for the shambles and flames of your life.. have a seat.

    Olivia needs to have a gat damn legit conversation with people before she starts “handling” shit because she always starts planning shit before knowing the full damn story… now here she go having folk running around for her aint shit mama asking people to call in favors at the pentagon and calling her boo because she knows he got juice… (she never calls fitz unless she wants something) and then fitz with this captain save- a hoe complex he got going on.. chile its a full on mess… don’t get it twisted I stand for OLITZ but these people need Christ all of em.

    Questions I have…

    1) How in the hell was Quinn kissin on ole dude with her mouth bloody and raw??

    2) Didn’t the rest of the team wonder where Quinn’s ass was at?

    3) Why is Cyrus acting like a bitch now after all his shit??

    4) Who was chick who was eyeing my boo-thang Harrison?

    5) Why in the hell didn’t Liv remember that damn phone call until after her gooning gansta bombing ass country mama got on the plane and was taking off?

    Awesome recap!! Shonda Rimes is the mistress of subtlety and innuendo.
    I love that she cast Jack Coleman as Sally’s “in the closet” husband.
    Does any one remember that he played Steven Carrington on Dynasty in the 80s. He was the one of the first gay characters on T.V.

    This episode just left me weak. So I had a Scandal watch party with my girls- got out my Olivia wine glasses and all – these heifers start dropping the glasses drinking straight from the bottle – see why they can’t have nice things- man we was laid out like Verna last night. They could come over next week, but I gonna get the paper cups.

    And see why you can’t sleep on any one in Scandal- all of us thought Sally was a waste of a time- now she just carrying on like a master goon, and we all felt sorry for James- but he had his lil moment in the spotlight Yet Quinn still hanging on like her last tooth hopefully she has caught a lil sense by now – Bring on next week.

    Again, I won’t rehash all the fine observations made earlier. My commentary regards the song “Ben”, which was very obviously played several times in YOLO.

    From Wikipedia re: the plot of the movie Ben:

    ” However, things gradually take a downward turn as Ben’s swarm becomes violent, resulting in several deaths. Eventually, the police destroy the rat colony with flame throwers, but Ben survives and makes his way back to Danny. The film closes with Danny, tending to the injured Ben, determined not to lose his friend.”

    This makes me think of three things:

    1) Maya, as chief “rat”, survived the plane crash (destruction of rat colony by fire) and returns to Liv (“Danny”) to get put back together (escape plans, fake passport, etc)

    2) Maya is about to get got, for good (by fire? Coming full circle?), and will make her way back to Liv one mo’ ‘gain for a proper goodbye, before she goes to be Satan’s right-hand gal,

    3) Maya will get got for good (fire!) but will sacrifice herself for Liv, a la Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader did for Luke Skywalker against Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine (which is…who/what? B613? Anwar Salif?).

    The movie Ben is pivotal foreshadowing.

    As for Mama Pope: stay gold (The Outsiders reference, if you feel me).

      Ben was the sequel to Willard. Willard is a social misfit with a strange affinity for rats. He lives alone in a large mansion, accompanied only by his cranky and decrepit mother. His best companion is a white rat he finds and later names Socrates for his wisdom; numerous other rats come to him, one of which is a giant one he names Ben. Willard’s talking to his rats, however, leads to his mother’s death and further pressure from the banks to give up the house. When his boss bludgeons Socrates to death, he trains his rats to follow his commands and kills the man. Ben, however, jealous of his favoritism towards Socrates, eventually turns on Willard and kills him.

      For some reason my mother let me see both of these movies in the theater. I had nightmares for a week after seeing them.

      I’m just wondering who or what agency is the Willard who created Mama Pope.

    For the first time in the three seasons I have watched this show, I am confused and lost. Which probably made last night’s episode that much better for me.
    I knew Mama Pope was the Grand Goblin and NOT Rowan, but how did Liv get it that she is a terrorist or worse than her father? I understand the connection with the name Marie Wallace, but after that my mind is drawing a blank.
    Sally may have killed her husband, but that could have also been James or Leo. My money is on Leo.
    I’m usually not for #TeamOlitz but that scene was cute last night.
    Cyrus has been taking James for granted since the show started. First with the whole baby-wanting thing, then almost killing him over Defiance, now using him as a personal gigolo. That ain’t cool. And Mellie was wrong for backing up and almost walking away from Cyrus when he broke down in the Oval Office, but I guess that’s how their twisted relationship works.
    Quinn is an assclown. She should’ve lost more teeth.
    That is all.

      Once she remembered the name Marie, she realized that Mom Pope was playing her as a way to get out of the country. Mom Pope knew that Eli would lock down conventional means.

      When she realized the connection to the name Marie Wallace, she realized that the “fake” name that her dad put out on the no-fly list was not a fake name at all, that it was in fact a real identity connected to her mom. That meant the charges associated with the name were real things that her mom did. They said the charges on the list were terrible terrorist activities, so Olivia suddenly understood that her mom was an awful, dangerous person.

    The best episode of the season so far. I am in Olitz heaven!!!!! It was a nice change having Livvy call Fritz.she just wanted to hear his voice but she called for help and her man was there for her. I am sick of Jake. He does not love Liv but he holds a grudge against Fitz and he thinks getting with Liv is the way together back at him. Quinn got what she deserved. Mama Pope is not to be played either. She has played her daughter and her husband and we wondered why Liv has commitment issues!!!!!!! We would have them too if we had the parents she had. Fitz was happy that Liv finally needed him and he was ready to give in to whatever she wanted. Sally got mad when she found out that Daniel had ruined her chance at becoming president so she took him out. She called Cyrus so he would clean up her mess for her. James dug it in to cy with all of his yeah he went deep and down and dirty comments. It was good to see cy getting his just desserts.

    Luvvie, your recaps bring out the snarkiest, wittiest comments from us! Thank you! I’ll start with you:

    They are now on the run with Mama Pope and the Gladiators are now using burner phones. Avon Barksdale is somewhere like “I did it first.”

    A couple of other gems:

    “dentally challenged”

    “That’s the reason DD cornered James in the hallway foaming at the mouth and such. He got it in! ‘member DD was talmbout unnatural acts and such…guess it felt natural at the time.”

    “Harrison you was real shook with prettybrowngirlcovertchick still have no currs about you…maybe in February the month of the Negro.”

    That’s the reason DD cornered James in the hallway foaming at the mouth and such. He got it in! ‘member DD was talmbout unnatural acts and such…guess it felt natural at the time.

    Totally agree with this statement: “Cyrus and James are one of the best written couples….that they’re gay is incidental.” But James is a whiny one. Cy said James was a ho when they got together but James gave that up for their relationship. That’s why James is extra-mad. But James has got to play his cards better. He and Mellie are two peas in a pod: great ideas but poor execution.

    Like others, I knew I couldn’t focus in completely after seeing the first 5-10 minutes of this episode. It just would have been too much. On my first rewatch now before I have to go to this meeting…. Good Lord…

      I don’t think he meant James was literally a ho’ when they met. James was/is a journalist. Cy was saying James was “lose”/slept around when they met. Cy appears considerably older than James & was in the closet at one point. It’s likely that the recreational sex of the younger generation appears lose to him.

    Last night was too much which makes me a little scare for next week. My thoughts:
    ~friends and family discount. Ha! Quinn’s annoying nosiness and lack of common sense fed Huck’s thirst for whisky. That face lick! If she doesn’t die I wonder if she will change her ways?

    ~The ultimate loser last night was Cyrus. Prez Ghost was mad at him. Mellie was pissed and couldn’t show him any compassion for his situation. Sally sent him out of her office with his tail between his legs. And James read him, called him the devil, acknowledged he got some, AND told him he wanted a divorce. All Cy could do was stay in his office on his couch, the ultimate SEAT.

    ~Jake basically said Ghost threw him under a bus with Remington and B613. Ghost is always hurt because of his own decisions. You know he is still mad Jake got with Liv when he is the one that put Jake in her life (but so did Command). I’m still Team Jake.

    ~Command/Eli has a heart. He “gets no enjoyment from ending a life.” It’s the job. Well, ok then.

    ~Mellie: “It hurts until it doesn’t.” She warned Cyrus.

    The Shondaland team truly does not disappoint.

    On a side note: I am checking my back to see if I have a chip I didn’t know about.

  48. December 6, 2013 at 11:30 am — Reply

    Lemme just say 2 things…

    a) that as much as Quinn gets on all of our nerves. That making #secks with Charlie was on purpose. I have a feeling the info she gave Huck required that she stay on good terms and “inside” B613. I don’t think that Quinn would purposely betrave Liv. And she loves Huck no matter that he “hurt her” she just wants the opportunity to make it up to him. And Charlie is about to open that door…

    b) I LOVE how the President got all in Jake’s face talmbout Liv don’t need a hero and then when she calls him just to talk he’s all putting on his cape of action to fly to her side. She didn’t eem want nothing from him and he is calling in favors to the Pentagon with his hands on hips and cape flapping in the wind.

    Olitz is trash. I’m so over them. I love Jake, but honestly he deserves more than what Liv is giving at this point. #BOOM

    I was ready to quit this show over the way Olivia is being written this season, the last straw for me was her sleeping with the man who killed her momma, then having him say he would take out her poppa, nawl that was too much for me. But after this episode? #Shonda i’m back! This episode gave me life!

    Huck goes hard! The face licking! Yolo? YOLO!! Omg! Don’t tell her you love her while you torturing her bro! No not cool bro, so not cool. Quinn, You a spy now girl! Consider yourself initiated.

    #deadmommapope you don’t get to return from the grave and criticize the girl’s life, you weren’t there Ma Pope. I knew there was more to it though, you don’t chew through your own wrists if your just a housewife on lockdown. Now she’s a spy on the loose. Used her daughter to get out of the country. Talk about a dysfunctional family.

    Oh and president Langston? Oh Sally, selling your soul for that title? That’s what all these characters have done. Fitz, Mellie, Cy, Olivia? Is it even worth it? A position where your hands are tied. A powerless powerful position. And you don’t get to shoot your husband and run for president, that’s over.

    Y’all I literally sat on my couch for an hour after that episode went off trying to recollect my thoughts and edges.

    Season 3 started off kind of mediocre, but is BLOWING UP EVERYBODY SPOT!

    I gotta break my questions/theories down into numerical list.

    1. Quinn got what she deserved. NEXT!

    2. Who dat Black girl, doe?

    3. Cyrus ol dusty, dirty, political-hungry-President-wannabe-Pimp daddy-mean ass got what he deserved! I hope James does leave him, even though Cyrus won’t make it easy for him. And he wanted to cry?! BOY, BYE!

    4. I know Mama Pope ain’t been right and been crooked. Anybody who eats their own damn wrist is a DAMN FOOL! The Gladiators gave her a gun and cell phone, which she will use and probably high jack the plane. This woman is smart as a whip, smarted than Liv and Command. She has all of the tools given to her to escape and live free. I think there will be a “Where in the World is Mama Pope” coming soon. What makes it worse is that the President helped her escape, which to me brings light to his affair with Olivia again.

    5. Phuck Olitz and their cheap ass one minute conversations. I’m so sick of them. Anyway…

    6. Before Huck pulled out her 3rd tooth, Quinn made a deal with him. She had sex with Charlie to seduce him to get what she needed from Command. She’s going to use the syringe to put Charlie to sleep and somehow get Command. Next week is going to be cray-cray!

    7. Sally called Cyrus to set him up. She will make it look like he was the one who committed the murder.

    Shonda dropping all kinds of hints about who Moma Pope was. Playing Ben every time she’s on screen. Rats have been known to chew off their own tails to get out of traps.

    I’m beginning to think Mellie’s red suits mean “danger, heartache ahead.” Every time she’s wearing a red suit somebody’s feelings get hurt. It’s usually hers, but this week Cy learned what it felt like to be Mellie.

    Last night’s episode proves why Sally can’t have nice things and be President. If those pictures weren’t going to phase you at all, than you don’t need to kill your husband.

    If you are going to kill your husband, you don’t call Cyrus. Instead, you have a back story that your husband is traveling to remote parts of the world to find himself.

    I called that Mama Pope was a terrorist a few weeks ago. So, i wasn’t shocked there.

    I was floored with the Sally confessional scene though. I was NOT expecting anything like that.

    I will say that I am happy to get a reprieve from Scandal….Shonda puts way too much into each episode. I have sensory overload after each one….I need a rest.

    I don’t know how i feel about seeing Cy break down…they’ve made him total opposite of what he was in Season 2. I’m not sure i like it.

    The scene where Jake tried to gather a group of men to take down Rowan seemed completely out of place. It just didn’t make sense. Jake worked closely with Rowan, he should know how he operates.

    It seems like Shonda is trying to find a place for Jake’s character, but it’s just not working. Maybe if Shonda actually played up the romantic angle between Olivia and Jake, it would be better.

    I think it’s hard to play up the romantic angle because the Fitz/Liv chemistry sucks the air out of the Jake/Liv chemistry. Whether people like (root for) or not like (Say hell to the no) Fitz and Liv together, the chemistry between the two actors is AMAZING!!! They even have chemistry on phone calls!!! Jake and Liv are ok together but in comparison it pales greatly. I’m sure they writers/directors/powers that be realize this. IDK..I feel like Scott hasn’t OWNED his character Jake like Kerry and Tony have the Liv and Fitz characters, but maybe that’s just me. But we’ll see what the future holds for Jake. I’m sure he’s being kept for a reason and that reason may be Liv, when the writers suddenly make Fitz realize he doesn’t love Liv (I laughed so hard when I typed the last part of this past sentence that I couldn’t breathe).

      I have nothing against Scott F. (though I’m not familiar with his previous work) but the character of Jake serves no point at this moment. Jake “The Hero” vibe isn’t working and, as you mentioned, KW/TG chemistry is impossible to beat. I think it’d be better to see “Bad Jake”. He’s envious of Fitz and perhaps having him go dark and cause troubles for Fitz would be more entertaining.

    Every time I wanna choke Quinn out, she gives me a glimmer of hope. Here’s my theory: Quinn is a double mole. Charlie set her up for failure to kill the guard so now B613 ‘owns’ her and she’s the mole planted inside of OPA. Huck found out what she did, began the slow torture, and in exchange for her teeth she started pleading with him. The scene where he had her against the radiator and she started fast talking her way out of torture, Huck turned her into the mole to get to Daddy Commander Goon. Where’d she get the syringe? She told him everything, so Huck knew it was only a matter of time before Charlie came to her apt. looking for her to take her to Wonderland.

    How did Quinn bounce back from loosing some teefs so quick to do the freak nasty with Charlie? Cause I get a root canal and be messed up for 24 hrs and I had anesthesia. Just sayin.

    I think Eli and Maya were on some Mr & Mrs. Smith shyt and Daddy Goblin get the upper hand. I agree NO ONE wears the white hat so I’m not ready to go all soft on the Grand Goblin or send Mama Pope to the fires of Modor quite yet. And why now, if she was capable of all this why escape now?! And thank you for clarifying the Ben reference I kept trying to figure out what that datum song was about… Imma need to stay prayed up to get thru next week and this impending drought.

    Here’s the main thing I don’t understand: Does Fitz ever do any work? The leader of Scandal’s free world got allkinnatahm to make calls, take calls, and receive visitors. Why’s he fighting so hard to keep a job he’s never actually doing?

    Great recap as per usual? Question, that chick that was talking with Harrison looks familiar. I used to watch Dark Angel with Jessica Alba, #prettyblackgirl looks like the girl that was the sidekick/best friend on that show.

    James and Cyrus relationship is definitely the best written and best acted on the show loved everything James did leading up to that epic scene in the bedroom i really felt his pain! Second best relationship Fitz and Mellie YES I SAID IT!!its as real life as they come. Loved this episode although i enjoyed it more on second watching without all the damn commercials! Im sorry i love Olitz as much as anyone but if i hear about Vermont and Jam and 1 Minute one more time im going to SCREAM ! Please writers come up with something else !!! O n another note i marathoned Luther on netflix over Thanksgiving That IDRIS ALBA is hotter than hot if shonda could get him in season 4 (britsh accent and all ) we might all be asking Fitz who? That being said is it just me or is Fitz serrriously looking hotter and with every episode !! TG definitely has that Kennedyesque look. Cant wait till next week!!!

    Great recap as always.
    I think Huck is Liv’s brother from Maya and he used to be a dentist (or he wanted to become one depending on his age at the time), and that’s why Maya came up with that dentist husband.
    I think it was Fitz that Huck was tracking when he heard the news about Maya and answered “then we got a problem”. Or that Salif guy was on his way to the airport where Maya’s plane just departed from.

    Don’t think Sally killed Daniel Douglas, cuz that’s what we would assume. I have watched this episode no less than TWO DOZEN TIMES and I still get slayed er’ time. Jesus, fix it.
