This week’s Scandal starts out with a dream sequence where Olivia (Kerry Washington) is torn between her two lovers. Who will she choose? In her dream she sports this Golightly Swimsuit by Oye Swimwear ($350). I found this Block Party Front Zip One-Piece Swimsuit by Seafolly ($142) to recreate the look for less.
Mellie (Bellamy Young) finally gets back in action as first lady when she has to plan a funeral for a former president. She looks great in a sold out Michael Kors dress. This Kasper Lace Panel Sheath Dress ($59.99) is similar:
In the meantime, Olivia wore a fabulous Check Trench Coat from The Limited Scandal Collection (sold out) to meet a client in prison. I would keep my eye on eBay to see if this pops up. I did find this Line & Dot Plaid Keaton Trench Coat here and here for $107-120.
I love when Abby (Darby Stanchfield) finally stood up to Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) for Olivia. She might be mad at Olivia, but she is a good friend in the end.
Olivia and Quinn (Katie Lowes) meet their new client, Leonard Carnahan (Brian Benben), and it is interesting when he quotes Olivia back to her, saying “The truth is like the sun.” Olivia wore an Escada Draped Silk Tee (sold out). I liked this Halogen Sleeveless Drape Neck Top ($11.90) because it had a higher quality material to match the Escada look:
I loved the scene with Mellie and Bitsy Cooper, the former first lady. I think she gave Mellie some hope for the future.
I also have to take a second and applaud Olivia’s statement for Fitz not to call Abby a bitch and not to use that word to describe women. Kudos to Shonda for adding that in there!
Olivia and team are able to get an autopsy on the late president and David Rosen (Joshua Malina) catches on to what they did. I have to say that they are good. Olivia wore a sold out Armani Collezioni Jacquard Asymmetric-Front Jacket and carried her Prada Saffiano Lux Double-Zip Tote ($2500). This Anne Klein Women’s Houndstooth Metal and Contrast Detail Jacket ($139) and Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote ($298) are similar:
Unfortunately, in the end Olivia gets played by Carnahan, but she does get a one up on her father by out manipulating him with Fitz. She ends up saving Jake’s life which is a start.
I loved Mellie with Bitsy at the funeral. That was the best we have seen her all season, I can’t wait to see more of her comeback!
Abby gets to call Cyrus (Jeff Perry) out on his secret tryst. That was a great moment on Abby’s part. She is starting to come into her own.
Olivia wore an Alexander Wang Mesh Combo Racer Back One-Piece Swimsuit (sold out). This La Blanca Sheer-Inset One-Piece Swimsuit ($109) is similar:
What do you think Papa Pope will do next week?
