Jake Continues to Complicate Lives on ABC's Scandal
Mellie (Bellamy Young) had some sobering truths for Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) this week. When POTUS discovered Mellie canceled visits from invisi-kids Karen and Jerry (who apparently only visit from boarding school when Scandal is on hiatus), Mellie confessed she did it for them—despite not having “the mother gene.” The kids begged not to come, because Daddy Dearest was now a mean drunk!
The First Lady twisted the knife further by saying he’d become just like “Big Jerry,” the father Fitz loathed. She said his transformation from Father of the Year to scotch-aholic came when he discovered his precious Olivia “didn’t have the secrets of the universe tucked between her magical thighs.” Burn!
Fitz looked gutted by this realization. Accompanied with a chat from Cyrus earlier, it seemed Fitz could be on the mend, and closer to forgiving his wife and chief-of-staff for Defiance.
