Let’s recap. (SPOILER ALERT AHEAD). By the end of last week’s “Scandal” episode “Molly, You In Danger, Girl” we were totally confused. Huck was shaking in a corner after being stored away at a storage facility, Abby and David were trying to reconcile or something now that David is hanging out at Pope and Associates, Harrison was on his usual gladiator game, Mellie and Fitz had epic battle #215, and Quinn clearly needs some more “How to Be A Badass” training so next time she doesn’t lose Huck when she’s supposed to have his back. Oh and Olivia? Well, she was being handled by the mysterious Jake, who was also spying on her. That whole spying thing was under Olivia’s radar until after a surprise visit to Jake’s apartment. They ended up in bed and it was all good until Olivia found out that Jake wasn’t a Direct TV subscriber – he was an Olivia TV subscriber!
Then, while all the world was wondering if Olivia fell and bumped her head going to Jake’s house in the first place, she literally fell and bumped her head and ended up in the hospital. There she was visited by a heartbroken Fitz, who despite whatever serious Presidential “situation” happened that interrupted his confessional call to Cyrus, flew out of the White House in full panic mode to comfort his injured love, (Picture the American taxpayers ire if they knew a sitting President was taking a motorcade to see his mistress, oh wait, there were only 2 Secret Service agents with him, so cancel the motorcade – maybe he grabbed a cab?) while Jake looks on like “What.da.hell.is.all.this?”
Now after all that happens, at the very end of the episode, ABC notifies us that “Scandal” won’t be back until April 25. WHAAAAAT?!!!!! Shonda, ain’t nobody got time for that! What the Huck with the three-week hiatus at such a crucial moment? Well since we’ve cleared our schedule every Thursday night at 10 p.m. anyway, we now have nothing to do but speculate about what’s next. So here’s our guide to Scandal’s most burning five questions. People, it is only 2 weeks. You’re not going to die. Though how messed up would that be if something happens to you between now and then and you never find out who Albatross really is?
1. WHO DA HELL IS ALBATROSS? Albatross, as you Scandal-lites know is the mole that has leaked confidential info. And tried to have Olivia killed, and a few other things that I can’t remember right now. One thing we do know it wasn’t the late CIA director and Olivia’s new squeeze and Joe Morton know who it is. Cyrus, Prez’s shady chief of staff might be the mole, or might not be but he’s definitely trying to have somebody killed.
