“First Lady Sings The Blues” #Scandal (S4:E20)

“I Need A Break Shonda, I Have To Put Our Relationship On Hold” #YouPlayTooMuch

(1) I am NOT ready for a spread-eagle Jake Shonda. #NOT #READY!

(2) This is NOT how Quinn discovers Jake’s body! NO! NO! NO! Just causally walking into the office, picking up the mail, turning on lights, reading headlines, making coffee and then… #BloodyJake

(3) Quinn talking about “He’s dead. This is a present from Liv’s father” meanwhile Huck is like “hmm no major organs, body still warm, gimme a sec – THUMP!” #AndViola #JakeLives!


(4) First, I’m glad Huck was there, knowing about some “warm enough” and second, I can’t play with Shonda any more. We are no longer friends. #ShePlayTooMuch

(5) Of course David rolls in talking about calling ambulances. Smh. He just NEVER gets it does he?? Like NEVAH! #OhDavid

(6) Where they take Jake? Rats?? And y’all relying on Charlie to come through with a doctor and supplies?? #AssassinsUnited

(7) Awwww look at Mellie the candidate! She looking powerful in that red suit! #GetItGirl! #WelcomeToVirginia #KissTheBaby!

(8) Hot Damn! There’s former VP Sally!! Coming for Mellie’s NECK! “Well, well, well. What is there to say other than ‘Bravo?’ Another fantastic performance by Mellie Grant. How insulting.” #TheLibertyReport

(9) They’ve been waiting over an hour for the doctor?? Is this the same incompetent ahole who couldn’t save Derek Shepard?? #GreysAnatomy #StillShook 🙁

(10) Doc Ilya re Jake: “Yeah, he is dying” #Sigh


(12) Damn Liv gotta make a deal with the Doctor to the Assassins to save Jake’s life. Love how Liv was like “but seriously you can’t just take some money??” / Doc: “Nah, B. I need a favor yo.” #HelpBlackSable

(13) “Scared man with glasses” best description of David Rosen EVER!

(14) “Black Sable” even has Huck SHOOK!  “I’ve worked with Russian spies. They’re all cold, dead inside because they have nothing to lose” – umm don’t you kinda go in and out of that persona as well Huck…? I mean I know you’ve got your family back but umm you still do that other “stuff” too #BulletCallingTheGunDangerous

(15) Wait. THIS is Black Sable?? GRANDMA MARY?? BAKING COOKIES??? #Pryaniki #LovelyHome

(16) Black Sable/Mary: “You don’t know NUTHIN’ bout ‘Russian poor’ – it’s next level honey.” She literally scoffed at “American poor” #Ha!

(17) Black Sable/Mary: “Looky here, I had an opportunity to get shoes and food. I had the eye of a sniper, could take cats out with my bare hands and all I had to do was become an American and kill ppl when they called” #SignedRightUp

(18) WOW Shonda brought Putin into this. Hitting the restart button. #WWIII??

(19) People don’t want Senators sleeping with Presidents. It’s almost funny given how dysfunctional the legislative branch is right now – sleeping with a President is the LEAST of the issues right now. #ObstructionistBastards!

(20) Mellie – let me take Sally, please let me take her!! #WWF!


(21) Re Mellie being “too close to the President” #DUH!

(22) Seriously no one checked about this? A possible legal issue with a person running for Senate while married to the President? #Google??

(23) David is a TERRIBLE liar! A bleeding sore throat?? #SeriouslyDude??

(24) “Mellie Grant’s run for Senate is legal because of misogyny” #ThanksFoundingFathers!

(25) Does David REALLY think a grand jury hearing is STILL going forward?? He can NOT be that NAIVE! I need him to take a good LONG look at Jake right now and then just STOP talking. #Smdh

(26) #SoundTrackWin!! James Brown – “Get Up Offa That Thing!” #DanceTillYouFeelBetter!

(27) KIMRIE!! I mean “Ashley” getting the facts straight! “Gotta be 30 yrs old, have to be a citizen of the US for 9 yrs and a resident of the State you’re going to represent” #SenatorQualifications


(28) Umm so why come Liv ain’t got no alias for Huck in her phone??? #ComeOnGirl! #SevenFiftyTwo?? 😉

(29) Russell is not good at his job and he is about to die. He said: “Ballard has been eliminated” and Eli responds with: “Untrue, False, a figment of your imagination.” Basically it didn’t happen cuz and you know how I know? ‘Cause I haven’t heard from a frantic daughter promising “white-hot vengeance”. Nope, all I have is radio silence #FixIt!

(30) RUSSELL! Calling Liv acting like he’s legit. UGH! ASSHOLE!! CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO DIE! Is she NOT on to him yet?? Does he normally call in the middle of the day?? #HeGottaGo! #ShadySOB

(31) This Russian butcher of Seville is like “Girl bye” to Liv #TraitorsDie


(32) He just called Huck a mutt. Ohhh that’s a no no #DeathSentenceYo

(33) Ummm Black Sable has gone soft y’all. Buck up Ma! #AssassinsGottaRepresent!

(34) Cyrus over there chuckling to himself re Mellie’s already dead in the water Senate campaign and then Abby and Fitz were like “so umm we need you to go on the air with Sally.” Cy’s reaction: “Y’all crazy as hell” #YouveGotToBeKidding

(35) Papa Pope sitting up in the Harvard Club shooting mofos with a silencer while casually sipping dark liquor and then hands Russell a hankerchief like it’s just allergy season. That man is diabolical but dammit he is sooooo good at it! #InAwe


(36) Cy: “I ain’t gonna do it!” / Fitz: “GET ON BOARD CY!” / #CySighs

(37) Former VP Sally calling Cyrus her “Dear Friend” – HIIIIILARIOUS! Cy’s sh*t eating grin – also hilarious. Wait, didn’t Mellie help that heffa out as well when she killed HER husband?? Sally’s memory is suspect #ButIAintForgot

(38) HA!! Cyrus threw that quitting her job as VP right in her face. #Vows #Oath #BS

(39) “Women should get paid in fried chicken now? Are you being paid in fried chicken to host this show?” #PRICELESS!!

(40) Interesting tactic Sally is taking talking about she can see it in Cyrus’ eyes that HE wants to run for Senate but I don’t actually think Cyrus wants to do that. Cy would prefer to just be President #ALaFrankUnderwood

(41) Cy dropped Daniel Douglas’ name and Sally was like “and that’s all we have time for today” #CUT!

(42) Umm so did Liv & Huck just figure out that Russell is suspect or nah??? Also, Russell STAY getting drugged! #DruggingHimAintEnough

(43) Ummm so she/they did figure it out right?? She just gave the Russian Butcher Spy Russell’s phone right?? Or was that her phone??? I’m half lost. On another note, Liv just put out an official hit on her Dad. I mean it’s TOTALLY warranted and she did try to kill him herself but still… #ThisShowIsCray!

(44) WTF IS JAKE RIGHT NEXT TO THAT AHOLE AND NO ONE ELSE IS AROUND?? Soooooo they don’t know ’bout Russell??? WTH IS GOING ON?? #SHONDA??

(45) And then Russell just goes back to lying there like “oh don’t mind me, I’m just trying to heal” #Boooooooo!

(46) Quinn called him Dr. Zhivago #Funny!

(47) Ooooooh Liv gave the Russian Butcher (Kostya) HER phone. She did crush Russell’s phone didn’t she?? There’s too much going on AND I’m still reeling from Grey’s Anatomy. D*MN YOU SHONDA!!! #ICantTakeIt!

(48) Wait, so Fitz might FINALLY get the divorce he wants?? To save Mellie’s Senate campaign?? How crazy would that be?? Also, Mels dear you have been lying to the American public re your relationship with your husband from like day one honey #DayOne

(49) Liv to Fitz: “What do you want?” Left unsaid “Ish is VERY bad right now” #VeryBad

(50) Also Liv just can’t resist problem solving can she?? “Look Mellie’s quest is a CLEAR conflict of interest so use it to your advantage. You good now? Bet, ’cause I gotta go.” #SaveJake!

(51) There ain’t that much sleeping in the world in a rat infested warehouse lying on some makeshift table nursing a bullet wound #Russell

(52) Too late for that island talk now Liv – GET IT TOGETHER GIRL!


(54) Oh so we back to killing kids again Shonda? WORD??? First Derek Shepard now CHILDREN?? AGAIN???

(55) Then Papa Pope just called her and in a tone of voice that could have been asking about the weather he was like “I done tole you about me girl” #YouGoneLearnToday


(55.1) But seriously Liv has to cease sleeping on her father tho. He is a MONSTER LIV! Know this! Make it your mantra but remember he is a BRILLIANT monster! #Truly

(56) Russian Doc: “My friend is dead so good luck with yours” #Deuces

(57) One day I pray David will get it. One day. This fool is STILL talking about going forward with the grand jury hearing. Liv: “let me explain it to you another way – No.”

(58) Charlie “Quinn was in B613 for like 5 mins, she barely qualified for the health plan” #LMAO!!


(59) SERIOUSLY Russell just lurking all up in the mix like he’s OPA is KILLING ME! #ARGH!!!! YOU ARE NOT THE NEW HARRISON! #GoAway!

(60) Mellie over here channeling Sarah Palin talking about “those media types in NY” – a chill just ran through my body #Ugh

(61) Cy The Hater #AllFrownedUp. Social media note, via twitter Jeff Perry mentioned that his daughter said Cyrus was being a “negative nancy” #Truuuuuu!

(62) Rowan/Eli/Papa Pope: “It irritates me to know that Jake is still breathing” #WhatIsFoxtail?

(63) AND another #SoundtrackWin!! Otis Redding: “I’ve been loving you too long” #YES!!

(64) THAT’S RIGHT GANGSTA LIV!!! THAT WAS THE DOPEST SHOT OF LIV I’VE EVER SEEN!! Hair is tight! The La Perla set is fly and a gak pointed at that shady ahole’s temple! #RockAByeBabyBaby!

Q. So why did Huck drug Russell?? Just to make it easier to cart him away??? You know what? #NeverMind…

COMING UP:  Liv vs The Navy, Spy vs Spy, Pope vs Pope. BETTA CALL MAMA POPE!
