Hello, Scandalites – Huck Juniors, or whatever you call yourselves. I’m subbing for the fabulous Lewsor this week, and I hope I do her proud. Tell me – does this show make you feel like you’re on one of those monster roller coasters, and you’ve just entered a tunnel, and you don’t know which way you’re headed? That’s what I feel like with all the twists and turns this season. I’m getting a little lightheaded!
Previously, my sweet psycho Huck showed Quinn that he can give Dexter a run for his money, Cy is a true jerk, Liv and the Pres are going around in circles, and VP Sal exorcised her personal demon by offing her husband. Wow. I need some of Liv’s wine.
We open with the final confrontation between VP Sally and her husband Daniel, and Sally’s on a verbal rampage. She talks about standing at the crossroads of history, and pontificates that he’s been her cross to bear and her original sin. Wow. He accuses her of always knowing what he was, and that she needs his “set of balls” to become President. As Daniel tells her he’s done, and may go the press, Sally snaps and plunges a letter opener into his back as he turns away.
She stands there, blood spattered across her face, looking as stunned as we all are. And in an ironic twist, she calls the one person that can clean up this mess – the one person who placed the final straw on the camel’s back. Cy arrives, assesses the situation and what his machinations have wrought, and promptly throws up in the bathroom.
Liv wants to know where Quinn is. I missed the part where Huck tells Liv that Quinn is a traitor. She’s taking it well. I would kill her myself. Huck is tracking her courtesy of some fine dental work her performed earlier. She’s at B613 with Charlie and Papa Pope, intending to get her damming video footage back and using a Huck-supplied needle to kill Papa Pope. But a random actor enters and tells the group that Mama Pope has been located, and the deal is off. Drats! Wait – wasn’t Mama Pope’s tracking device destroyed? Hmmm… Charlie comforts her with “Hey – at least I didn’t have to kill you!”
