Season 3, Episode 2: “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”
Posted by Sage
I know, I know. It’s my debut Scandal gif-cap, and I’m incredibly late. Buuuuuuut…
So you forgive me, yes, Gladiators? On to the episode!
“You want a doggy bag?” “Every Sunday.” That white hat feeling pretty good, Liv?
“I’m trying, you try too.” Even when he’s pretending not to be a terrifying assassin, Olivia’s dad isn’t exactly cuddly.
Olivia’s dad used to work at the Smithsonian? I thought he killed people just to watch them die.
“I’ll make an honest woman out of you at any time.” Team Edison. Not marrying him was the biggest mistake Olivia ever made.
Huck goes completely HAM on the purse snatchers. Look out.
“I miss you.” “Stop.” No, really. Stop. I judge anyone who thinks Olitz is the love of a lifetime and not a toxic co-dependent obsession.
No one is making jam, Fitz. You ARE THE PRESIDENT.
The White House hasn’t confirmed the affair. What’s up, guys?
“ETHAN. WHHHHAT?” CYRUS, YOU CRAZY BASTARD. I LOVE YOU.
Olivia destroys her press conference, as usual.
“I can kill a man with very little effort and a lot of joy, but I try not to, okay?” Poor Huck has no legal hobbies. Perhaps he should take up needlepoint or writing really violent fan fic.
“I don’t like wine. I don’t have the taste for it.” I prefer chocolate milk!
Papa Pope is lying through this teeth about B6-13. And I’m getting more and more uncomfortable.
“You’re evil.” “You’re welcome.” Mellie and Cyrus are my frenemy OTP.
The instant messages that can clear Jeanine are on the White House network. And I doubt we’re gonna get ’em.
“God, he seems so…normal.” Quinn, don’t you recognize the lord of darkness?
“How do I know he isn’t already dead?” “You don’t.” Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.
“No, that’s when they make you wish you were dead.”
David Rosen’s goatee! A hooker named “Licorice”! It’s like Christmas!
Wonderland Avenue. FOR REAL? THAT’s their top secret code name? THE STREET THEY LIVE ON?
“You don’t know me that way, you don’t want to ever know me that way.” Yikes.
“Why did you hack into Liv’s email?” “Because I can.” Sorry, Huck. Quinn has stolen the barely-contained psychopath throne right out from under you.
Abbie threatens Ethan about his Torrents. And that gives me the sweats for reasons I don’t want to go into.
Jeanine cries to Olivia. And I tire of her a little more.
“It wouldn’t be the first time a powerful man’s wife got jealous for no reason.” The parade of shit Mellie has to deal with though. No wonder she’s a master of manipulation.
Liv gets called in to identify the bodies of all corpses that are six foot tall or more. Ring, ring…
“Like disappearing innocent citizens, that kind of thing.” I see what u did there.
Jeanine takes the fall or Jake dies at the hands of B6-13. And Liv has to make the call.
“You’ll look in the mirror and you won’t recognize yourself.” Jeanine’s gonna take the money and run.
“We’re being preempted.” “By who?” “The President.”
“How Presidential are my balls now, Cy?” What even is this show?
“There’s been a terrible accident. I’m surprised you haven’t heard about it, it’s been all over the news.”
“That person’s name is Jeanine Locke.” The President throws Jeanine under the bus, because he’s still dreaming of Vermont and jam or some shit. He’s truly the worst.
“IS YOUR FATHER COMMAND?” HOLY CHRIST.
“Open your front door.” Jake’s a little banged up, but he made it!
Hope you let your wine breathe before tonight’s episode, kittens. Next stop: Wonderland.
