— Scandal (@ScandalABC) October 17, 2014
We opened up last night’s episode of Scandal with Jake walking towards his car. His B613 sense tells him something’s fishy and when he takes a look at the wet ground under his car, he sees what it is: a flashing red light. He presses the security button for his car and BOOM! Of course, cool guys don’t look at explosions, so when we catch up with Jake, he’s arriving late to Olivia’s house for date. The excuse: ”car trouble.”
Because this is Scandal we’re talking about, she doesn’t actually stay for the date. Her phone rings and off she goes.
Ultimately, everything that happens this episode goes back to the fact that everyone is still dealing with the death of the President’s son at the end of last season. Well, maybe not Cyrus, but everyone else.
