Last week's Scandal felt like a season finale, and rightly so, given that "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" has propelled us ten months into the future and changed just about everything we know about everyone. The rest of this post is going to be filled with spoilers, so you'll want to stop reading if you haven't watched (since this show has gone insane with the shockers). And can I just say how impressed I was by the acting by Tony Goldwyn in this episode in particular? He did some tortured facial expressions that just spoke volumes without a single word spoken.
We've blabbered on about the reasons you should be watching this series, and last night only confirmed that this is a network show that drops twist and turns and major shockers like it thinks it's on cable or something. So if you haven't watched, and you plan on doing so, stop reading now because there's no way we can talk about this episode (with the wonderful title "Nobody Likes Babies") without spoiling it. Let's take this business character by character, shall we?
Well, it wasn't as much fun as last week's Washington madam storyline, or even remotely as entertaining, "Hell Hath No Fury" did deliver some fun twists and turns. Especially since we've never really trusted Zach from The O.C. and now we know why.
"Dirty Little Secrets" certainly lived up to its name, given the hookers and presidential infidelity going on. Here were the juiciest "secrets" from last night's episode of Scandal:
Shonda Rhimes has stepped out of her comfort zone of soapy medical dramas and into the world of politics with her new show Scandal. And while it isn't The West Wing by any means, it's definitely got the addictive qualities that have kept us watching Grey's Anatomy all these years, along with a cast that we might have assembled for our TV Fantasy League (maybe she can find a way to work in Adam Baldwin as a Secret Service agent at some point?). We've seen a few more episodes beyond the pilot, and though the series isn't groundbreaking or landmark television by any means, we're still hooked. Here's why:
Kerry Washington's D.C.-set soap is so much fun, it's scandalous.
Maggie Smith holds court again.
Celebs are coming together to help the Jersey Shore... the place, not the show.
Look what ol' Sandy dragged in.
Another day, another J.J. Abrams pilot
