Scandal Season 4, Episode 8
“The Last Supper”
Well then. After beating the crap out of him the last few episodes, Fitz has finally come around to the idea that Jake can be an asset (even if he is doing it purely to get into Olivia’s pants). And thus the unholy alliance of Olivia, Fitz, and Jake is formed to take Rowan down. But have they forgotten that you can’t pull one over on command? Let’s get to the gifs to find out!
“So now I’m innocent is what you’re telling me.” I mean, he’s always been innocent, but let’s not argue about details.
“You’re not my friend, Mr. President.” FITZ IS NO ONE’S FRIEND.
“I don’t want justice, I want to kill your father.” Awkward.
“I will call you whatever I want to call you.” Even though they are on the same team now, Fitz refuses to treat Jake with respect because he is the worst.
“You and me…we stand in the sun.” He said “stand in the sun”, so everyone should take a drink.
“That’s one of our catchphrases.” I love that Jake throws that in Fitz’s face, no matter how childish it is.
Lizzie’s phone is being bugged and she calls Liv in to find out who it is.
“No Elizabeth, you’re great, we’re besties.” Cheers to Kerry Washington for her delivery of this line.
“I don’t have to be your friend to do my job brilliantly.”
“Consider it handled.” SHE SAID THE THING, GUYS.
Andrew’s car was rigged to explode and the only reason he wasn’t in it was because he decided to shake hands with the wait staff.
“Do not call me unless you are in the hospital.” Liv’s rant here was VERY Miranda Bailey in the Grey’s Pilot. She has five rules.
“I wasn’t aware we were on speaking terms, Dad.”
“Jake is not family.” “HE IS TO ME.”
“I will be here for you long after these boys reveal who they are.”
“I will always be there waiting for you.”
MELLIE AND ANDREW KISSING.
Andrew rips Mellie’s shirt off (dig the red bra, gurl) AND THEY DO IT RIGHT THERE IN THE OFFICE.
David is brought in on the plan to bring down Rowan. “We need you to handle this discreetly.”
Fitz goes in for a kiss and Liv DENIES him. Maybe she still has all her senses after all?
“You don’t want me to kiss you because of Jake?” No, she doesn’t want to kiss you because YOU ARE GROSS.
“Is it disloyal to me or is it disloyal to him?” OH MY GOD FITZ YOU TWO ARE NOT IN A RELATIONSHIP. ENOUGH WITH THE CREEPY.
“This one’s free, it’s just you and me.” I really need to take a shower after this scene because I feel GROSS.
“Kiss me Olivia, you know you want to.” SORRY I HAVE TO DO THIS.
And Liv kisses him passionately. And I throw things.
Cyrus confesses to Liv about Micheal. Liv, queen that she is, remains calm and does not yell at him like I would.
“He was a whore sent by Elizabeth North to trap me.”
“They are going to destroy us, everything we’ve worked for.”
“Clients are plenty, friends are few.” Ain’t that the truth?
“Do you have a work related request for me?” Status on Liv and Huck’s relationship: still awkward.
Lizzie has all sorts of pics and videos of Cyrus amd Micheal. “I wrote the book on this particular brand of political extortion,” Cyrus bemoans. THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER THAN TO CONSORT WITH A PROSTITUTE CY.
“I’ve compromised my integrity, my family, my President. For what?” For some peen. Obviously.
Liv tells Lizzie that her phone issues were only due to a virus. SHE CHOSE FRIEND OVER CLIENT. I AM SO PROUD.
“You’re getting me out of here, right?” (Also Jake’s stubble is really working for him)
“You could let me rot in here.”
“All you have to do is turn your back and you and that Fitz guy can dance off into the sun.” I can’t with this self-sacrificing for Olitz, Jake.
“Don’t ever talk about me and another guy and the sun again, okay?”
“Okay.” SORRY YOU GUYS I HAD TO DO THIS. (Also Liv and Jake ARE basically Hazel and Gus, right?)
“It doesn’t FEEL like you want me to go.” (Michael grabs the boner Cy has in spite of himself) Ha ha ha ha, I hope you had fun with that scene, standards and practices.
“Turn around and bend over.”
Liv confronts Michael and learns that he HASN’T been leaking info to Lizzie, aside from the ONE comment about Army Bases.
Seems that he really likes Cyrus after all.
Quinn watches a guy eating donuts.
Huck bugging Lizzie’s secret apartment.
“Did you really just turn to her to take your side?” I wish Fitz and Jake would just wrestle and put us all out of our misery.
Liv fake crying to her dad about Jake and Fitz. She’s very convincing, but let’s face it, there are more than a few grains of truth here.
“I’m the shiny object and my father will come for me.”
“What happened in my office was…” “Amazing.” Subtext: let’s do it again please.
“You left me behind, you chose the Vice Presidency over me.” NEVER FORGET HOW MUCH MELLIE HAS BEEN SCREWED OVER.
“I erased me too.” Mellie, my sad queen.
“That bomb went off and I woke up. My BODY woke up.” SO LET’S HAVE SEX AGAIN OKAY?
AND WE HAVE MORE ANDRELLIE BANGING.
“He cares about you Cyrus, he thinks you’re a good man.”
“Stakeouts are kind of boring, huh?” Tell that to Mulder and Scully.
Quinn shows up at the stakeout cause HER guy shows up at the apartment Huck is watching.
THE DOOR OPENS AND IN STROLLS ANDREW. This physically hurts.
NO NO NONONONO ANDREW AND LIZZIE. I’m not even gonna modify my notes, I’m that upset by this.
Killing Dan Kobiak…all the while seeing Andrew and Lizzie getting down on the couch. Andrew you JUST had sex with Mellie, how gross are you? We could have had it aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllll.
“I haven’t been the perfect father. I know that.” Understatement of the year, Rowan.
“I want you to know I never put my job before you.” Keep telling yourself that, Dad.
“What I’ve done, all that I’ve done is because of you.”
“That is what you WERE to me.”
“I am leaving, Olivia, because of you.”
ALL THE TROOPS ARE DEAD JUST LIKE THAT.
“You have forsaken me, your father, your family.”
ALL THE FILES ARE JUST BLANK PIECES OF PAPER.
“For the first time in your life, you are on your own.”
“Wait till you see what it’s like without me.”
GULP. Fall finale is tomorrow, Gladiators! What exactly IS going to go down, now that Papa Pope is going rogue? Share your thoughts and theories in the comments!
