Did Scandal's Finale Keep You Guessing?
Secret meetings once again had to be held to determine what to do over Defiance. Olivia (Kerry Washington), Cyrus (Jeff Perry), Hollis (Gregg Henry), Mellie (Bellamy Young), and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), who replaced Verna, met in the White House kitchen.
Hollis suggested they should do what they should have done over a year ago: kill David Rosen (Joshua Malina). Fitz decreed no more bloodshed, and they decided to get the Cytron card back and destroy it this time.
Fitz also informed Liv he wanted her to be his First Lady now, and not wait another four years after the election to be together. He told her to come up with a plan that made the American public love her more than Mellie, and them as a couple. Then, he could still win a second term with Olivia by his side.
Billy saved his neck last season by making an alliance with Charlie. Olivia Pope and Associates soon figured out he was working with a jilted Governor Reston, who tried to blackmail the president into a spot in his administration.
Huck (Guillermo Díaz) couldn’t stomach torturing the location of the Cytron card out of Billy—so Quinn (Katie Lowes) did it! Huck was horrified he had turned her into a monster, since she enjoyed the torture-by-electric-drill way too much.
Quinn, face drenched in blood, smiling gleefully was a bit ridiculous. I don't care how much time Quinn has spent with Huck, you don't go from small-town lawyer to sociopathic assassin in that amount of time.
