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. READ MORE
Expect for ABC to change things up a bit next season, when it comes to scheduling its primetime soaps. According to Deadline, ABC has decided to air “a selected group” of shows in two continuous runs, in the fall and spring.
Some of the networks’ biggest and most buzzed about shows are included in the special group. Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon a Time and possibly Revenge are mentioned in the article. In-between their fall and spring runs, the show’s time slots will be filled by “bridge series.”

Cyrus (Jeff Perry) spent most of this week’s Scandal dodging reporters’ questions about the president’s affair. Meanwhile, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) was reluctant to make any statement at first, just wanting to stay in bed with Olivia (Kerry Washington). How awkward was it having Cyrus stutter at the simple question, “Where is the President?”
Cyrus finally got Fitz back into the Oval, only to be informed POTUS had decided to give a speech that night, telling the American people he would not seek re-election. Cyrus looked like he was going to puke.
Desperate, he told Fitz to make up with Mellie (Bellamy Young), and he’d help Fitz carry on his affair with Liv. Fitz stayed firm. He doesn't want an affair; he wanted to openly be with the woman he loves. READ MORE
On today’s Pop Confidential podcast Jamey Giddens, Luke Kerr, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels have been struck with a severe case of Scandal fever. From Olivia and Fitz’s sizzlin’ relationship to the spurned First Lady, the PC gang discuses it all in this special Scandal Confidential episode.
Scandal isn’t the only hot show the DC crew dishes about on ABC. Miranda Bailey faced an investigation into the deaths of her patients on Grey's Anatomy. Jamey and Luke disagree on Cristina’s storyline.
The podcast then becomes Awkward as the gang discuss a surprising death on the MTV series. Brawls erupt in The Real Housewives of New Jersey trailer, but does that have anything on Mariah Carey andNicki Minaj’s feud on American Idol?
All this and much more on today’s Pop Confidential podcast!
Once again, this week’s Scandal left you on the edge of your seat. This show is great at final acts that leave you screaming at your TV in awe and disbelief.
It’s not that the plotlines are so unpredictable; it’s that you get to know these characters. You fool yourself into thinking you understand them. Cyrus (Jeff Perry) couldn’t have a pregnant girl murdered! Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) wouldn’t kill Verna! Mellie (Bellamy Young) wouldn’t blow up the president’s spot! Then, they actually do and their character is irrevocably altered. You realize, you actually had no freaking clue what they’re capable of. READ MORE
A lot happened on Scandal this week, and yet, a lot didn’t. This episode was mostly filler, but it did feature some instant “classic” Olitz scenes. It’d been a while for the star-crossed pair!
With Olivia (Kerry Washington) still in the hospital after her fracas with Jake, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) sat vigil. Due to his status as President of the United States, the Secret Service had to practically shut down the hospital to accommodate him. READ MORE
