Scandal Episode 12: We Do Not Touch The First Ladies

So the beginning of this episode starts with Olivia and Fitz arguing about Jake and what is best for Olivia. That fight was literally jaw dropping. Anytime Olivia and Fitz argue it gets very heated. So there is this new guy Andrew Nichols and you can tell that Mellie and him have some type of past together, but we don’t know what kind just yet. Although it would be nice to know that Mellie actually stepped out on her relationship with Fitz. I know you’re probably thinking why I would say that. I said it because it would make Olivia and Fitz relationship not seem so bad being that she is his mistress and he is the president who is married with three children. So in last week’s episode Harrison was worried about someone who he found out was back in town. I’m wondering who this person is and why does he seem so nervous and worried. It turns out to be a woman and then he sleeps with her so I was completely shocked. So Jake is the new head of B6-13 and with all the files in the briefcase that was given to him, you can see that he was completely overwhelmed. In my opinion I think that Jake is in way over his head. I do not think that he was fully aware of all the responsibilities and everything that comes with being head of B6-13. Poor Sally keeps having flashbacks about killing her husband after finding out that he was into men. From her actions, you can tell that her killing and covering up her husbands murder is eating her alive. She keeps spacing out, not really focusing like she should. Later in the episode we get a glimpse of Mellie trying to overdose on pills after Fitz’s father raped her, unbeknownst to Fitz, before he got elected to President. We see that Andrew was the person who found her and helped her. Sometimes I feel sorry for Mellie and all that she has been through. She never revealed to anyone what Fitz’s father did to her, except for Andrew. David and James are teaming up together to take down Cyrus and to leak the information about what really happened to Sally’s husband. This really threw me because if Cyrus finds out what James is up, all hell is going to break loose. While Olivia and her dad have their customary dinner together they get into a little spat and Olivia decides to leave and she spots Quinn surveillancing her outside of the restaurant. So Olivia decides to hop in the car and try to convince Quinn to leave B6-13 and come back to work for her, but Quinn is still hurt and in pain from Huck torturing her. So she pulls a gun out on Olivia and tells her if she doesn’t get out the car she will shoot her, so Olivia leaves, and Quinn breaks down in tears. Quinn thinks she is so smart and ready to be apart of B6-13 but I don’t think she really, truly understands what she is getting into. Olivia finds out that the drug scandal that Andrew was apart of was really him covering for Mellie that night that she tried to kill herself. James and David meet on the street somewhere and they hatch the plan to give Vanessa the evidence of the cover up, but  when David is on his way there he gets kidnapped and stuffed in the trunk of the car. At the end of the episode you notice how Huck is trying to make things right with Olivia for what he did to Quinn even though he somewhat sort of blames Olivia. He told her that “You hold the leash”. Then Mellie and Andrew have a conversation and before you know it Mellie kisses him. Which is a shocker to me because she had just told Olivia that they are nothing alike and how she isn’t a cheater even though she had the opportunity before. But the shocker of this episode, which happens the last 40 seconds, is that Harrison’s ex is working with Olivia mother! Stay tuned for episode 13 on Thursday at 9/8c. Trust me you will not want to miss it. Links to clips from this episode are below and a sneak peak of episode 13.

Cries Of A Young Girl

In a dark cold room
She sits alone and confused
Tears flowing from her eyes cuz she doesn’t have a clue
What to do
Where does she go from here
What’s her next move
How does she get through all the hurt and abuse
That the only person she has puts her through
She has no friends
No one she can confide in
So she sits alone with tears flowing down her cheeks
Thinking to herself how can I live this life week after week
Before this could happen to her again
She decides to take her life cuz she is her only best friend

These are cries of a young girl..
