Two weeks ago, “Vermont Is For Lovers, Too” aired…Oh Boy was it so Scandalicious!!
Before I get into the recap, let me just say that I am a huge Scandal fan and a self-proclaimed GLADIATOR! Not since Dallas, Dynasty, and the Cosby Show have I been glued to the TV when a show airs (Thursdays at 10pm EST on ABC, for those that live under a ROCK).
This show BRINGS the drama, fashion, suspension, giggles, sexiness, and of course love! Yeah, and the soundtrack on the last couple of episodes has been good too!! If you are ADDICTED like me; you have stood under a lamppost saying, “Beam me up, Scotty”, because two weeks could not come FAST enough!! Anyhoot, let’s get this recap started:
Mama Pope, proved to be one Badass Mama! While she’s been locked away for the past twenty-some years ( by Hell & High Water aka Eli), she has had time to hatch a plan to escape. Did you see that awesome rendition of Hannibal!?! Girlfriend, bite into her own arm and chewed, like it was a three-piece from KFC!?! Note to self: Hannibal practiced “self-preservation“, eat other people!
What can I say, “Quinn, didn’t you think messing around with Charlie was going to have consequences? I mean, REALLY? Shooting, torturing, slapping & pushing may be exhilarating–just ask 50 Shades of Abby…but you know damn-well that Charlie is a Bad Dude and you don’t just “wade” in his pool—YOU dive right in and breast stroke!!! So now you’re the newest member of B613…Charlie must be one HELL of a kisser, because now you have to met this dude…
HUCK!!! Please don’t underestimate this dude…he may seem like a weird “techy” guy…but please DON’T sleep (with the fishes–that is)! If Quinn had a brain, she would have noticed that Huck was doing her a favor by pulling back from her; to let her have a normal life. But “NO“…she had to prove that she could wear the “Big Girl Panties”! Now, she has Huck inside her apartment with his “no-so fun” bag of treats and she is about to sing like Luciano Pavarotti!! Or will Huck have mercy on her!?!? In the words of Madea: “Huck, just saved your life—HALLELUEEERRR!
OMG! Is Cyrus just a low-down, No-Account, Back Alley Pimp!?! Cy gives a whole new meaning to “Chief of Staff”!!! First, he collides with the late Verna, Hollis, Mellie, and Olivia to “fix” the election, in Grant’s favor (Defiance). Secondly, James finds out about Defiance and Cy was going to have him killed by Charlie (6 Degrees of B613). Lastly, Cy & Mellie formed a “partnership” (WINK WINK) to get Fritz re-elected, so Cy sends James to interview (casually) Sally Langston’s husband, Daniel, who is (in the closet) gay!?!? And too top is all off, Cy has a photographer watching James and some “shocking” photos are taken of the “interview”!! DAMN Cyrus!!! Does Cy have an “Achilles Heel”? Does he really love James!?! Or will he be as cut-throat as we know him too be!?! Interesting…to see how Cyrus “Handles” those shocking photos of James & Daniel!?!
Aww, Fritz & Olivia. Who knew that Fritz was going to pull the greatest “player” move and bring Olivia to the house he bought for them to live in!?! Too Smooth…what can I say, “Their in love”!! We all know that Dear Ole Mellie, never wants their “love” to happen; but she has a few in “bones in her closet”. I’m just “spitballing” here, but never sharing with Fritz that his daddy raped her and that their first child could be his father’s. Yeah, I think that was some crucial information and Mellie seems a tad bit “heartless & selfish“! Did Mellie not tell Fritz because she knew it would “break” him and ruin their marriage??? Or did her EXTREME ambitious win out? I am going with the latter choice, thus sharing that “news” would destroy Fritz and break the “strings” to keep Fritz dancing for her. Very interesting to see how this little “love triangle will play out! Can’t wait for tonight’s episode (YOLO)!
Please share your insights on the show!
