Super Powers, White Hats & Dad: The “Scandal” Season Finale Recap

May 17, 2013 ‐ By

At the top of the episode, the team, the Defiance Alliance got together to discuss how they’re going to get the Citron card back from the Governor Reston and eventually Billy Chambers. Mellie is pissy because Fitz is sitting there across from his mistress giving her the eye. Cyrus lies to her telling her he’ll come back. Meanwhile, in another room Fitz tells Olivia to come up with a plan to Iyanla Fix Their Lives so they can be together and she can be America’s next First Lady. He tells her to use her super powers and then gets down on his knees to show her what his are. Just as Olivia’s head was rolling back in ecstasy, Khia’s “My Neck, My Back” started playing. (I’m joking but it would have been appropriate. If you missed this delicious scene, or need to relive it, check out the video below.

    Soon as Jake comes out of that hole, he is going to be team Gladiator!

    …The part at the end when Olivia is in the lobby on her way out and everyone is looking at her with slight disgust, but the only black person in that building (old man sitting) has the biggest smile on his face. I LAUUUUUUUGHED when I got it.

    • Lana

      Yeeeees! I was like “something’s bout to go down” when I saw her smiling and people looking at her, and the weird music that was playing!!!

    How could you forget to recap the scene in the ambulance?! Only Cyrus would have a massive heart attack, yet still continue to do his work and yell at the medics helping him, for helping him and keeping him from his work lol. I loved the finale. I can’t wait for season 3 :)

    • Lana

      That scene made me laugh so hard, especially when he told the secret service agent to shoot the paramedic! Cyrus is too much! Jeff Perry’s performance in the last two episodes was amazing!

      • Guest360

        You and me both lol. Not even a heart attack can keep this man down. “Shoot him! Oh forget it. Give me the gun. I’ll shoot him myself”. WHAT?! Craziness lol. Jeff Perry is a dream on this show. I need him to get nominated at least once for something. The man deserves all the awards.

    I still can’t get over the fact that Joe Morton aka Byron Douglas (he will always be Byron to me) is Olivia Pope’s father. If they bring Jasmine Guy on next season as Olivia’s mama, i will GAG! That season finale was everything. I watched it like 3 times to make sure i didn’t miss anything.

    I guess im the only one that was dissappointed by the finale? Dont get me wrong, it was a good episode but i expected it to be great!! I predicted most of what was going to happen. We all knew that oliva and fitz wasnt going to end up together because that would basically be the end of the show as we know it. Huck practically forshadowed the fact that quin is turning into him (or the old him that is) and i knew all along david rosen was going to do the right thing! The only surprise was definately the ending….everything else was just ok. Btw i may be in the minority but im rooting for jake and olivia. Im so over olivia and fitz.

      I have been rooting for Jake too…primarily because I am a fan of Scott Foley and I think he would be a good addition to the cast. I think Shonda wants the audience to kind of get away from the whole Olivia and Fitz…it was not her vision for it to go as far as it has when she created the show. I trust her judgement….besides, I watch for Cy. He is my favorite (don’t judge me) LOL!

      • Guest360

        Actually….what she said was she didn’t envision Olivia and Fitz being as big as they were, until she saw that first scene in the Oval Office between the two. She now calls them the central relationship. I don’t think she wants the audience to get away from them or she wouldn’t have ended the season with their affair possibly coming out. Trust we are about to have another round of Olitz come Season 3 lol.

        • DianaDT

          I agree, I saw a few interviews with her…but I no doubt think she will keep us on our toes. Personally, I liked it when they were on a break this is a great show for so many other reasons as well!!!!

  • TallGyal7

    This show right here has got to be one of the best shows on tv right now…hands down. I am such a fan. Great writing on this show.

    I can’t wait to see how she fixes this situation with her being Fitzs mistress. I can’t stand Millie I would have punched him in his face after he told her all those plans to be with Olivia. They need to find her a boyfriend next season so she won’t be looking so stupid.

  • JRoc85

    EPIC!!!!! That finale was everything, & so much more!!!! So let me get this straight: David was never a traitor, he was just “wearing the white hat” along with Olivia the ENTIRE time; Billy Campbell FINALLY gets what he serves (so does David); Cyrus is an a**hole who is willing to do EVERYTHING it takes to keep Fitz in the Oval Office; Meliie is crying, upset, & gets Fitz in the end (by default); Jake fell in love with Olivia despite being hired to KILL her; Fitz FINALLY puts Mellie in her place & makes it known he wants Olivia to be in the White House only to have Cyrus destroy his master plan; Quinn turns into Huck LITERALLY; Harrison is “ride or die” for Olivia; Abby discovers David’s secret; & Olivia’s father (the amazing Joe Morton) leaked the information about her being Fitz’s mistress AFTER his plans to kill her FAILS????? Season 3 is gonna be TOO MUCH TO HANDLE. Shonda Rhimes is the best!

    • TallGyal7

      Summed it up perfectly!

    • I_am_a_Gladiator/Scandalista

      Im so sick of little whiney Mellie and her getting everything she wants. Its time for Fitz and Olivia to be together already

  • Daisy Duke

    I knew that man was Olivia’s Father!

    • sabrina

      Yeah, last week, someone on my Twitter TL brought it up as a possibility. And they were clearly right.

    • IllyPhilly

      Yeah, that was clear from the gate.
