They're in lust Abcdxyz!

The new character, played by Scott Foley, is going to be hard to get rid of. I say send Huck to deal with him.

Yeah. . . whatever. . .

I wish they'd show more of the "in love" part of the relationship. Sometimes it's hard to believe that even they think that this is anything other than a physical relationship. We had a few scenes of them talking on the phone and seeming to have an intellectual/emotional rapport, but mostly it's just panting and unzipping.

Don't like his looks already. He's clearly stalking her and engineered the coffee-shop encounter. Who is he working for/with? Hollis Doyle?

I feel really sorry for David Rosen. He's right that Pope & Assoc have pretty much deprived him of his livelihood and career. He would be better served leaving D.C. and trying to start over somewhere else, but then he'd be out of our story, wouldn't he?

Abcdxyz, have you been watching the series from the beginning? Because, there's been quite a few instances of them carrying on a strickly platonic relationship. I'm talking about the scenes of them early in the campaign. She really lit a fire under him, and made him a much better candidate.

What I've found really strange is his wife condoning their relationhip. She's even put them together on occasion, because he's a better President when Olivia's around. That takes an understanding wife. Or, a wife who wants to be First Lady more than anything. I think its more of the latter.

They've destroyed his whole life. But you have to give it to Olivia, it was never personal. And, she proved it when she came to his rescue in this episode.

Re: Scandal - Who is Quinn Perkins?

I'm starting to really dislike Fitz, and I don't care that Olivia "broke his heart." Bullcrap! He's an idiot. Maybe he shouldn't be president.

Come on Abcdxyz, you're telling me you haven't been madly in love? Mad enough to do anything to be close to the one you desire?

I've never been a proponent of the "love of my life" cliche. But you have to admit, the look in Fritz's eyes when he sees Olivia is something to behold. When he's not around her, he's physically ill. Lke part of him is missing.

It doesn't matter that he's mad with her either. If she's in the room, he's drawn to her. Maybe its lust. Maybe he's never had a relationship with anyone that's made him feel the way he does when she's around. Obviously, Mellie doesn't do what Olivia does.

I'm feeling a little scared for our Quinn Perkins. She's in danger, now that the bad guy knows she knows. Can Huck keep her safe?

And I still don't know what to make of Cmdr. Jake Ballard, the Presidents friend. Is he just keeping an eye on her for him, or does he have an alternative reason?

Yes, I have. And I would not have wanted to be trusted with the red phone and the nuclear football during those times in my life!

His brain.

I'm worried too, especially because apparently the bad guy is the head of the CIA. I've missed the plot leading up to this, I guess, so I'm not sure why she and Huck are tailing him. Can you refresh my memory?

I think he is genuinely becoming interested in Olivia for her own sake, and is beginning to question the president's assessment of her. I definitely feel he has his own agenda, here. Would be fun if he were a double agent, wouldn't it?

Re: Scandal - Who is Quinn Perkins?

OK, pulled this from the ABC Scandal site recap of the previous ep:

"In other news, Huck decodes one of the encrypted files. The team now knows that the man who killed Wendy is the White House mole who also leaked the true identities of the CIA spies that were taken hostage. Molly sees this man, Albatross, on TV. He happens to be the person closest to the president in the investigation. Albatross is the Director of the CIA."

This must explain why they're following the head of the CIA. Me, personally, I'd leave that one alone!

Boy, that sounds like a story you can only tell on your death bed.

I can understand why, she's extremely sexy. I just can't get a feel for the guy. Good writing, and a fine actor (Scott Foley).
