Scandal 4 x 04
“Like Father, Like Daughter”
Well it had to happen…Fitz finally got Olivia alone and made the moves on her. Sigh. We got three solid Olitz free episodes though!! Elsewhere we dive into the LOVELY world of teenage sex tapes. TO THE GIFS!
We open with Jake in a dark parking lot. He sees a bomb under his car, walks away and explodes it.
Olivia bought them dinner and it’s really sweet how much she is trying to have a normal relationship with Jake.
Olivia gets a call…and it’s the underage First Daughter…drunk, vomiting, and in her bra and panties. This can’t end well.
Meanwhile, Cy spends some cuddle time with his prostitute. This will ALSO not end well.
Huck shuts down all the cell service at the party so they can get Karen out. Like a boss.
“What are we doing?” “Getting you into college.” So many college really frown on the underage partying you know.
“This isn’t a job, this is a favor.” Keep telling yourself that Olivia.
“I just needed a night out!” This whole situation is feeling very Chasing Liberty gone bad.
“I just saw the dirtiest sex tape I have ever seen in my entire life and it stars his teenage daughter.”
“Can we do this later? I’m still really wasted.”
“What they did to me? What about what I did to THEM?” Karen may be troubled, but she owns her sexual power. Also was anyone else annoyed that Fitz went straight to rape when talking to her?
“Every girl is someone’s daughter.”
“You are a zombie army of two under the command of Olivia Pope.”
“As far as making you feel small, I don’t do that to you. I suspect jealousy does that to you.” Cy dropping truth bombs on Abby.
Fitz opts not to tell Mellie why Karen is REALLY at home.
The official hashtag for Karen’s party was #Swagapalooza. Why this isn’t the hashtag for the wedding I am going to tonight, I will never know.
Rowan to Secret Service Sneak Tom: “I’m disappointed in you.” As in I’m mad you failed to kill Jake.
“Look at my face.” Guys…you know what I have to do.
ARE YOU DISRESPECTING THE HOUSE OF POPE?!
Jake shows up right after Rowan leaves. Creeper.
“You may not trust me but you KNOW you can’t trust him.” DOES NO ONE WATCH THE X-FILES?? LISTEN TO MULDER.
“Liv….where did you go?” Fitz turns on the puppy dog eyes. DON’T GIVE IN LIV!
Liv lies and says that she went away alone.
“Oh hi. Am I due for a good threatening?” Even as he wrestles with his guilt, David’s snark is delightful.
David is doing some day drinking cause his brushes with the dark side are weighing on him.
“Your morality means NOTHING!!” Jake says, as he threatens to snap David’s neck. Yikes.
Mellie sees Olivia in the hall and the way she screams her name is EVERYTHING.
“Hello, Mellie. Got some new boots there? A new color?” Cy adorably tries to avoid the situation.
“I want to know why the HELL you’ve got Olivia Pope in my house.”
“This is not her family. This is MY family.”
And now, Fitz’s name calling of Mellie, a rage gif essay.
“Screw It All To Hell Mellie.”
“Eat Everything That Is Not Nailed Down Mellie”
“I am grieving for the loss of my son and I am also running a country.”
“She takes after her Daddy them, doesn’t she?” After all of it, Mellie gets the best insult in.
Huck’s face when Liv says she will cook.
These parents want 2.5 Million Dollars not to release the video OF THEIR OWN SON.
“They think they can blackmail the President of the United States of America??”
“She’ll be no better than a reality star…the lowest form of life.” So I am guessing Liv is NOT a fan of the Kardashians?
“The world is full of terrible parents.”
“Am I failing as a man too?” NONONONONONONONONONO STAY AWAY
“Didn’t you miss me?” I DO NOT LIKE WHERE THIS IS GOING.
YUP HAND DOWN THE PANTS SO HE CAN TRY AND FIND OUT JUST HOW MUCH SHE MISSED HIM.
AND THEN KISSING.
“I didn’t go away alone.” THANK GOD SHE STOPPED THIS.
“So I am failing as a father, a husband, and a man.” And a general human being.
The greedy parents have upped the price to three million.
Olivia flips it on those assholes as soon as they ask for more money. She has HAD IT with these people.
“These are children, you sick sons of bitches.”
“Kiddie porn starring your OWN flesh and blood!”
“Every family in America will hate you.”
“I will make SURE your faces are etched into the American Memory.”
“I think you thought feeling SOMETHING was better than feeling nothing.” In this moment, Mellie has never understood her daughter better and my heart soared. It’s what Karen needed…not yelling…not fixing…just understanding.
“You get one free pass. This was it. You do not get another.”
“If you were a boy, they’d be giving you high fives.”
“But you’re not…so your knees are gonna have to stay together.” EVERYBODY SING! “This is for my girls all around the world…”
They are onto Tom…
Tom calls Jake for help once he realizes what’s happening so they can get ahead of Rowan.
Fitz shutting Jake down cause he is the worst.
Rowan interrupting Tom’s interrogation right as he is about to spill…and he’s there on Fitz’s orders.
“WHO GAVE YOU THE ORDER??” “Jake Ballard.” OH CRAP.
JAKE IS IN DEEP SHIT.
HOW is Jake gonna get out of this one? Just how awful IS Fitz? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
