Scandal Recap (And More) 2.14: “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”

If this is the kind of relationship Shonda Rhimes wants us to root for, we have a problem.

This week, I’ve written a little more than a recap, as this episode reminded me of something in my life that I feel the need to compare to Olitz to. A warning: I have now become as cynical about this program as Kendra. I still love the show, but my eyes remained at half mast for a good part of the hour.

Not sure if…hatred for Fitz is more…than for flashbacks…

The breakdown: Each week, Kendra or I will provide a Friday Scandal recap the day after the newest episode airs. The next Thursday morning a longer roundtable discussion of the episode is posted featuring Joe, Kendra, and a variety of guest commenters.

Spoilers for Scandal Episode 2.14, “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” (and my little anecdote) are under the cut.

Scandal Roundtable 2.13: “Nobody Likes Babies”

Hosted by Joe Lamour and Kendra James

Last week in Kendra’s recap, she basically summed up the actions of the last episode (that we all care about) in these two sentences:

Olivia and Edison are over, but Fitz and Mellie are stronger than we’ve ever seen them. Oh, and next week we jump ten months into the future because they were running out of election flashbacks to use.

Tonight’s episode, with that jump, has Ms. Pope moving on (obviously…of course…not really) with a handsome stranger (safe for work preview is here.) But before all that happens, read what we think of the last episode where we discuss the love square from Planet Frustration and more.

Loree Lamour, Johnathan Fields, Jordan St. John, T.F. Charlton, and Zach Stafford join Kendra and me for this week’s Scandal discussion. Spoilers under the cut.

Scandal Recap 2.13: “Nobody Likes Babies”

It’s like we never left Olivia Pope’s DC as this episode barely misses a beat, jumping in right where we left off with what could have potentially been the best cage match on network television. Three men enter, one man leaves. Given Hollis’ involvement my guess is that is probably would have looked and sounded something a lot like when that dog used to beat up Foghorn Leghorn on the farm.

The breakdown: Each week, Joseph or I will provide a Friday Scandal recap the day after the newest episode airs. The next Thursday morning a longer roundtable discussion of the episode is posted featuring Joe, Kendra, and a variety of guest commenters. What do you think?

The Scandal Roundtable 2.12: “Truth Or Consequences”

Hosted by Joseph Lamour

Instead of an intro I think we should look at a preview for the next episode because, I mean, Good Lord.

Fitz, calm down.

Let’s get to talking about the events (first discussed in last week’s recap) that led up to Fitz hating his First Lady so much even though he cheated on her. T.F., I’m definitely sailing slowly towards Team Mellie. I mean, all that’s keeping me on Team Olitz at this point are…you know…abs.

Loree Lamour, Johnathan Fields, Jordan St. John, T.F. Charlton, and Zach Stafford join me to dissect the issues.

If you missed last night’s episode,  all of the White Hat Brigade knows most of Scandal’s huge secrets–and don’t you worry… I won’t discuss it till we’re under the cut. Spoiler alert if you haven’t seen it yet: a character is indignant about something–I hope I didn’t give too much away! As we all know, Scandal is all about these secrets and how they simultaneously enrich and ruin everyone in Northwest DC.

A lot happened in this episode, so let’s get to it!

The breakdown: Each week, Kendra or I will provide a Friday Scandal recap the day after the newest episode airs. The next Thursday morning a longer roundtable discussion of the episode is posted featuring Joe, Kendra, and a variety of guest commenters.

The Scandal Roundtable 2.11: A Criminal, A Whore, An Idiot, And A Liar

Hosted by Joe Lamour and Kendra James

Well, what a difference a day (or a few hours) makes. I really want to jump right into this weeks discussion with my fabulous Scandal roundtablers, but here’s the short of it: as we saw last week, Edison in one day implied that Olivia was, as the title of the episode indicated, a criminal, a whore, an idiot, and a liar, and then backpedaled so far into “I love you!” within an hour that he should really contact The Guinness Book of World Records.

Kendra James, Jordan St. John, T.F Charlton, Johnathan Fields, Zach Stafford and Loree Lamour join me to dissect what in the world is going on.

Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope on “Scandal.”

It’s Scandal Thursday! A brief reminder of the drill: Each week, Joe and Kendra will provide a Friday Scandal recap the day after the newest episode airs. The next Thursday a longer roundtable discussion of the episode is posted featuring Joe, Kendra, and a variety of guests commenters. This week’s recap is provided by me, Kendra, who, in full disclosure, enjoys the show but has a little less tolerance for some of its more outlandish situations.

Like how characters seemingly up and change personalities at the drop of a hat.

Welcome to our (semi)inaugural Scandal roundtable! How timely.

It looks like the people in this group are chatty–but also rather astute. Fabulous combination, if I do say so myself. If you need to reacquaint yourself with last week’s plot–Scandal 2.10 “One for the Dog” take a read here. This roundtable is to serve as an insight into the actions of the previous episode, so you go in refreshed and omniscient as I feel when I finish editing these.

In addition to Kendra James and me, joining us we have Loree Lamour, Zach Stafford, T.F. Charlton, Johnathan Fields, and Jordan St. John. And boy, we have quite the analysis for you, so I’m going to let you, the reader, get to it!

And remember! Spoilers lie below the cut. Spoil-y Spoilers.
