Geez. Someone told me that #Revenge was just a crappy, primetime soap opera. Could it be more dramatic than this third season of #Scandal? President Grant's affair is now public knowledge. The First Lady leaked Olivia's name. Cy and Olivia's father have Jake Ballard 'missing'. Huck wants to murder Olivia's father. It's enough to give a person an aneurysm, or at the very least, a headache.

Watching the newest episode, all I could think about was that I'm glad I didn't join the military. I almost joined the Navy. You can see pictures of me with my recruiter if you care to check my senior year yearbook. I'm sure I would have either ended up a Seal, or in the intelligence community. Both would have gotten me killed.

I really enjoy watching Quinn come into her own. #KatieLowes has played it perfectly, turning into Huck. And Huck doesn't like it one bit. More than once, Huck tells her not to be like him. But she can't help it. She figured out that Huck and Olivia met before any of them became #Gladiators. And then she became the resident hacker, while Huck was 'taking a sick day'. "We get sick days??!! What's next holiday pay?" The funniest part to me, was when Quinn had to hack into the FBI database. "I'm not Huck!" I was actually surprised when she sat at Huck's station, that there wasn't a shortcut on his desktop labeled "Hack The FBI".

If you were to make a list of the most trite, overused, cliches in American film, where would you start?

"Don't you die on me!"
"We'll get through this."
"I'll never let you go."

Thank you, Scandal for adding more to the recipe. "All that got me through it was picturing your face. You saved me."

Bullshit, if I ever heard it. Jake is playing Olivia, she knows it, and she still can't help herself. I can't wait for her to figure it out, and put everyone in their places. Her father included. Also, Mellie is a monstrous bitch, David Rosen was a #BMF to Cy #JoshuaMalina, #GuillermoDiaz is an amazing actor, and Huck is one of my favorite characters from any show, ever.

  1. I can't say that I agree with the parallel here to #revenge and calling #scandal too much like a soap, but it's your opinion! I think #shondarhimes is telling an awesome story, and #kerrywashington never stops bringing the emotion to the story. I'm going out on a limb to say that Jake doesn't have another agenda, but that doesn't mean Rowan doesn't have another agenda for him. Either way I can't wait for this week!
