Scandal Recap: "A Door Marked Exit"
The last new Scandal episode of 2013 did not disappoint. The high-charged outing saw several game changers that set up a wild second half of the season.
Sally Murdered Her Husband
Viewers got to see the explosive fight that led to Sally (Kate Burton) stabbing Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman) with a letter opener. She bellowed his sodomy was threatening her career, and he mentioned how they both used each other. Daniel pointed out Sally has always been his beard. He was finally going to leave her, thus ruining her shot at the presidency.
In a fit of rage, Sally went crazy and killed her husband! Then, she called Cyrus (Jeff Perry) for help. Cyrus was sick when he saw what happened, since he’d orchestrated everything. He called in a team to fix it, and they made it look like a heart attack. Good news: It appeared Sally would get away with murder. Bad news: She’d have to wait four years to run for president.
Quinn Can’t Go Home Again
After Quinn (Katie Lowes) missed her shot to kill Eli (Joe Morton); she removed the tracking device Huck (Guillermo Díaz) planted in her tooth. Olivia (Kerry Washington) was disgusted Huck tortured her, especially since it meant Quinn wouldn’t come back to them for help with anything. Huck felt no remorse, and wanted Quinn dead.
Eventually, Quinn returned, but Huck told her she wasn’t welcomed. He stressed the only reason she was still breathing was because of Liv. Quinn was left to continue faking a relationship with Charlie (George Newbern), so she had a place to live and wouldn’t get killed by B613.
