Scandal “Even the Devil Deserves a Second Chance” Recap

The impeachment is over and the White House is celebrating…for about five minutes until they find out that Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) father is free. How much longer until they figure out who helped him escape? Olivia wore the sold out Armani Collezioni Triple Layer Hem Wool Blend Jacket. This Preston & York Nisha Blazer ($99) is similar:

Armani Collezioni

The party is over when everyone finds out that Rowan (Joe Morton) has escaped…aka Olivia helps him get out in exchange for getting rid of the impeachment. The thing I love about Jake (Scott Foley) is that he totally calls Olivia out on her double standards. Olivia wore a sold out Max Mara Detroit Belted Camel Hair Jacket and carried a beige Prada tote ($2,500). This BCBGeneration Tuxedo Blazer ($118) and Michael Kors Selma Satchel ($389.17) are similar:


Later Olivia and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) are hanging out in the Oval Office when Cyrus (Jeff Perry) comes in with a new agenda…he’s a little disappointed when he realizes that Olivia is running the show now. The President is preparing to give out the Presidential Medal of Freedom and all seems great until Olivia’s new client claims that the honoree is a rapist. This puts Liv and Fitz on opposing sides this week. Olivia wore an Armani Collezioni Zigzag Zip-Front Jacket ($348) and had her Prada Saffiano Medium Executive Tote Bag ($2,500) on hand. This 1 STATE Chevron Peplum Jacket ($89.50) and Michael Kors Selma Tote ($300) are similar:

Armani Collezioni Chevron

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) takes some time to meet with Liz North (Portia de Rossi). Abby carried a sold out Zac Posen Eartha Metallic Colorblock Leather Tote Bag. There is an all black version still available for $276.50:

Zac Posen

Liz breaks the news to Abby that she’s planning to go on The Liberty Report with Sally Langston (Kate Burton) if Abby doesn’t find her a job back at the White House. Liz wore a sold out Wool Plaid Coat from Brooks Brothers and she carried a Zac Posen Eartha Iconic Jumbo Double Handle Bag ($595). This Vera Wang Herringbone Long Fit & Flare Coat ($450) and McKleinUSA Tablet Faux-Leather Shoulder Tote ($199.50) are similar:

Brooks Brothers Plaid Wool Coat

Abby runs to Cyrus with this information and gets David Rosen (Joshua Malina) involved to silence Liz. She wore a Gucci Pussy-bow Silk-Georgette Top ($597). This INC International Concepts Long-Sleeve Tie-Neck Blouse ($39.99) is similar:


Olivia and Quinn (Katie Lowes) went to question Frank Holland about their client’s accusations and he plays dumb making their client look foolish. Olivia wore a sold out Pleated Silk Blouse by Etro. This Matte Jersey Shell from Ann Taylor ($49.50) is similar:


Liz North is still planning to spill the White House secrets on Sally Langston, but Olivia doesn’t seem scared. She is running Fitz and the Oval in the most beautiful bow blazer. I wish I could find the original. This was so unique I had a hard time finding a match. The closest I could do was this BGN Blazer ($166):

Bow Blazer

Liz blinked and didn’t sell out the White House secrets to Sally Langston, but instead we discover that Fitz has given her a job as Susan Ross’ chief of staff. Liz wore a GUCCI Pussy-Bow Printed Silk-Crepe Blouse ($750). This Sanctuary Boho Nouveau Blouse ($44.99) is similar:

Gucci pussy bow blouse

Later she ends up seducing David Rosen and Olivia handles Frank Holland. Cyrus finally figures out that Olivia is running the show not Fitz…and Olivia embraces it. We’ll see how long that lasts when Fitz finds out she was the one who released Command.

Scandal “Get Out of Jail, Free” Recap

It’s impeachment week on Scandal and the first on the hot seat is Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young). The committee steamrolls her and puts her in a terrible situation. The one thing I love about Mellie and this episode is that she won’t stay down for long. At the hearing she wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fitted Blazer ($878) and a Boss Dokysa Ponte Knit Dress ($196.20) with this Roberto Coin Cocktail Necklace ($5200). To recreate the look I found this H&M Fitted Blazer ($49.99) with this Adrianna Papell Cap Sleeve Jacquard Sheath Dress ($140) and this Bezel Gem Oval Pendant Necklace ($67.80):

Dolce and Gabbana

Olivia (Kerry Washington) realizes it before everyone else and calls Abby (Darby Stanchfield) to warn her. Abby wore a Ponte Knit Dress from Brooks Brothers ($148.50). This Halogen Ponte Dress ($98) is similar:

Brooks Brothers Ponte Dress

In order to handle the situation and prevent Olivia from testifying, Cyrus (Jeff Perry) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) propose marriage. Olivia doesn’t go for the idea. She wore an Armani Collezioni Croc-Embossed Taffeta Jacket ($443.70). This Kasper Open-Front Swirl-Print Jacquard Jacket ($89.25) has a similar look and feel.


Abby, Quinn (Katie Lowes) and Huck (Guillermo Diaz) have to stand trial before the committee regarding Jeanine Locke and unfortunately have to pin everything on Harrison. In the meantime, Olivia gets a call from the hospital informing her that Eli (Joe Morton) is there. She pays him a visit and he tries to get her to release him. Olivia wore a cardigan similar to this Neiman Marcus Mixed-Stitch Draped Cashmere Cardigan ($168.75):

NM Cashmere Collection

Fitz then tries to propose to Olivia in a romantic way, which she completely shoots down. Desperate for a solution, she calls Jake (Scott Foley) for his opinion and he hangs up on her (good for him!). Then she meets Mellie in secret to try to get her to release Papa Pope so he can blackmail the committee and let her off the hook. I was so proud of Mellie for standing up to her in this scene. This is definitely a low point for Olivia. After all the work to get rid of Eli, she is now trying to set him free…unbelievable!

Fitz finally gets his divorce, but not without some final words from Mellie. I was so proud as she finally stood up for herself.

The wedding day finally arrives and Olivia is stunning in a Victoria Beckham Short-Sleeve Shift Dress ($2,365), sold out St. John Collection Beaded Organza-Trimmed Boucle Jacket ($757.98), Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps ($595) and a Prada Double Bag ($2,980).

St. John

To recreate the look I found this Ralph Lauren Ruched Cap-Sleeve Dress ($149), Tahari ASL Pearl Embellished Jacket (from the set) ($199.99), Steve Madden Proto Pump ($60), and this Calvin Klein On My Corner Saffiano Leather Satchel ($248):

Wedding recreation

Olivia sees her life passing before her eyes and you can literally see her backing out of this arrangement. Lucky for her, Mellie by way of Eli saves her by blackmailing the committee. She meets Mellie for one last confrontation where Mellie finally realizes that she can have anything she wants and I love it. Mellie is on fire tonight! Olivia wore a sold out Max Mara Drape Collar Reversible Coat. This DKNY Two-Tone Hooded Wrap Coat ($177) is similar:

Max Mara

Now that Eli and Tom are free, anything could happen! What do you think Fitz will say?

Scandal “You Got Served” Recap

We open this week’s Scandal with the Senate opening an investigation into Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) affair. David Rosen (Joshua Molina) has to give everyone a reminder that an impeachable offense is whatever the Senate wants it to be and nobody is safe. I liked Elizabeth North’s (Portia de Rossi) blouse, but personally am not a fan of the wide leg trousers. This Wayf Keyhole Long Sleeve Blouse ($54) is similar:


Things get a little awkward for Olivia when she has to fix herself as her own client. She wore a Vince Geometric-Print Silk Tee ($165).

Vince geometric

Since doctors make the worst patients, Olivia brings in Leo Bergen (Paul Adelstein) to be her fixer. As he tries to make her a “woman of the people” he has to take her wardrobe down a notch by only having her wear clothes you can get at the mall. First up is this Anorak Jacket from Target ($31.50):

Anorak Jacket

The strategy is to get someone with a great public profile to talk Olivia up and the team agrees on Edison Davis (Norm Lewis), much to Olivia’s chagrin. She has to meet with him and convince him by admitting some hard truths about herself. He is still pretty angry about her lies in their relationship. Olivia wore a MaxMara Visone Reversible Wool & Angora Wrap Coat with Belt ($2,990). This T Tahari Mia Brushed Wool Blend Wrap Coat ($174.90) is similar:

MaxMara Visone

Her fabulous bag was the trusty Prada Saffiano Lux Tote ($2,500). This Michael Kors Sutton Tote ($375.44) is a great look for less:

prada saffiano lux tote

Apparently, she did it because in the next scene he is giving a glowing interview about her on national television. Olivia wasn’t too thrilled in any case, watching the broadcast with Fitz. She wore a Ralph Lauren Cabled Cashmere Open Cardigan ($779). This Plush Ribbed Cardigan ($29.97) is similar:

Ralph Lauren Cardigan

This strategy works until Mellie (Bellamy Young) gives the media a tip about the ring that Fitz gave to Olivia. Now Olivia has to sell her love story to the press. For some reason this is an issue for her, which prompts a visit to Jake (Scott Foley). She wore the same Mossimo Anorak Jacket ($44.99), this time in Forest Ranger Green.


Jake tells Olivia like it is. I still have no idea why she picked Fitz over him – he obviously knows her better. Olivia takes his advice and tells the press how she really feels about Fitz – it is odd to see. She wore a white peplum blouse for her TV interview. I found this similar Michael Kors Short-Sleeve High-Low Peplum Top ($58.99) to recreate the look:

michael kors peplum

Everything is moving along swimmingly until Olivia discovers that the Senate committee knows about her abduction and why the President went to war in West Angola. Olivia dons the Natori Enchant Chemise ($160) and turns up the music to tell Fitz the news. They realize that Cyrus (Jeff Perry) is the only one that can connect Fitz to the tape and confirm their suspicions.


Olivia and Jake have dinner together and they talk about his wife. They are a weird couple. I can’t decide how she really feels about Jake. Olivia wore a cozy long cardigan and a Vince Boy-Fit Jersey Tee ($60). This Halogen Wool & Cashmere Drape Front Cardigan ($148) is similar:

Vince jersey tee

At the end of the episode, Cyrus betrays Mellie yet again by going back to Fitz. After watching their scene, you couldn’t help but expect it – those two were meant for each other #Bitz (or #Feane?) is who I’m shipping for.

Scandal “Dog-Whistle Politics” Recap

Quinn (Katie Lowes) kicks off this episode in a suit no less. It’s been a while since we’ve seen her in that attire and I think we’ve almost forgotten who she used to be. She meets up with Marcus Walker (Cornelius Smith Jr.), who was caught screwing the mayor’s wife last season. Quinn gives him the same gladiator in a suit speech given to her by Harrison, but he wasn’t having any of it. And who could blame him, its been a long time since they were gladiators in suits.

Meanwhile at the White House, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) is furious about how the media are portraying Olivia (Kerry Washington). He wants Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) to fix it. Elizabeth wore a white pleated sleeve tie blouse. I found this Silk Neck Tie Blouse ($98) to recreate the look:

tie blouse

Olivia encourages Fitz not to fire Abby (Darby Stanchfield) and tells Fitz that he’s not acting like a leader. She’s not wrong on that front. He is acting like an immature child. Olivia is hermiting at home, drinking wine in the La Perla Silk Essence Top ($314). This Topshop Strappy V-Neck Camisole ($28) is similar:

la perla

Things heat up when Olivia catches the paparazzi taking pictures of her from the building across the street. The team has to come in to “fix” her situation. She wears a Josephine Cashmere Cocoon Sweater from 360 Cashmere ($251.40). This Neiman Marcus Cashmere Exposed-Seam Duster ($117) is similar:

360 Cashmere

The media is getting more aggressive and Olivia refuses to hire someone new, much to Quinn’s chagrin. In the meantime we learn that Jake (Scott Foley) is married to Elise (Mia Maestro) on his B613 errand! BOOM! Didn’t see that one coming.

Elizabeth is on the hunt to repair some of the damage Fitz and Olivia have caused. The Senate is getting ready to call for Fitz’s impeachment, so she decides to appeal to Senator Gibson, which didn’t exactly go as planned. Elizabeth wore a Tied Neck Blouse from Derek Lam ($990). This Evanna Double-Tie Peasant Blouse ($114) is similar:

Derek Lam

The scene between Fitz and Mellie (Bellamy Young) killed me. That’s the one area where Olivia is selfish. By having an affair with Fitz, she is breaking up a family. There is no doubt that Mellie loves her family, it’s too bad that Fitz doesn’t want to fight for that.

Olivia is starting to crack, which is why the President decides to take her on a date in the midst of all the paparazzi coverage. I thought that was a rather bold move in their current situation. Olivia wore a St. John Collection Felted Wool & Cashmere Coat ($2,195). This Parker Hurley Blanket Stripe Wool Coat ($495) is similar:

St John

Apparently, Mellie agreed with me because that one move pushed her over the edge and she gave her consent to the Senate committee to impeach Fitz. I think we’re in for one hell of a ride this season.

Scandal “Paris is Burning” Recap

After Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) revelation that she is Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) mistress, Abby (Darby Stanchfield) has to stop the interview with Mellie (Bellamy Young) to deny the affair. I loved Mellie’s Lela Rose Fitted Lace Sheath Dress ($1795). This Marc New York Lace Sheath Dress ($148) is similar:

Lela Rose

I loved what Abby did with the Secret Service to stop the interview. What a smart move! As soon as Mellie and Fitz figure out what’s happening, Olivia shows up in the Oval Office. Mellie is furious and Fitz orders her to leave until they figure out what they’re going to say. Olivia wore a Christian Dior coat. This Autumn Cashmere Double Face Knit Coat ($396) is similar:

Christian Dior

Mellie calls in Cyrus (Jeff Perry) to negotiate for her and aside for wanting to stick it to Olivia and Fitz, she wants the Oval. Olivia is inclined to agree to all of Mellie’s demands and keep her happy, while Fitz doesn’t seem to care about anything other than this relationship. Olivia wore a Vince Cross Stitch Double Layer Tank ($248). This Everleigh Double Layer Tank ($68) is similar:


I loved the scene between Olivia and Mellie in the closet where she gets Olivia to reconsider her decision. Being the First Lady isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be and I think Olivia finally realizes what she is giving up to be with Fitz.

Fitz isn’t willing to give up and goes and talks to Mellie and gives her a heartfelt apology and basically charms the pants off of her. She buys the whole thing until Cyrus, angry about Fitz’s cold brush off, tells her that she got played. Then the best moment of the episode happens…Cyrus and Mellie give the symbolic finger to Fitz and leave without doing the interview. Mellie wore a black Marni Herringbone Print Dress ($1630). This Ralph Lauren Houndstooth Print Dress ($139) is similar:


I love Mellie’s character and was so proud of her for finally sticking up for herself. This is going to be one hell of a season!

On a side note, Jake (Scott Foley) pays a visit to Papa Pope (Joe Morton) because in other news, the Louvre is burning and that means something else is happening.

What did you think about everyone’s choices in this episode and what are Eli and Jake up to?

Scandal “Yes” Recap

This episode kicked off with Sally (Kate Burton) dropping the affair bomb to the public with photographic proof this time! Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) rushes down to the Oval Office to confront Abby (Darby Stanchfield) and Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) about what has happened. He is stuck on how the photos were leaked, but it’s too late for that, that pictures are already out there. I liked Elizabeth’s black and white blouse and found this similar Brigitte Bailey Abbey Blouse ($35.99):

Elizabeth North

So what does Olivia (Kerry Washington) do with this? She runs away to a new case and avoids dealing with the situation. The President decides that he isn’t going to make a statement without Liv so they just stay in a holding pattern letting the media speculate their relationship. Olivia is on the run, on a new case and ends up borrowing Quinn’s (Katie Lowes) clothes. She wore a Free People Hooded Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($168):

Free People

Huck (Guillermo Diaz) comes back with Jake’s (Scott Foley) help, but Quinn doesn’t believe that he’s really reformed and tries to push his buttons. Meanwhile, Abby is getting tired of saying nothing during the press briefings and with a little push from Cyrus (Jeff Perry) she decides to take matters into her own hands. Elizabeth is not too happy with this and tries to set her straight, but she can’t handle the President any more than Abby can. Elizabeth wore an Alexander McQueen Pussy Bow Blouse ($1045). I liked this similar Vince Camuto Ruffle Hem Tie Neck Blouse ($89) to recreate the look:

Alexander McQueen pussy bow

Abby, with David’s (Joshua Malina) help, that Elizabeth is the one who leaked the photos to get back at Mellie and Abby demands that they be equals in order for her to keep that secret. Fitz takes Abby’s advice and apologizes to Mellie and they prepare to do a sit down interview. That is until Olivia drops a bomb of her own.

This episode was so confusing, I don’t understand why she won’t just be with Jake, she obviously has feelings for him. I was blown away at the ending. I can’t believe Olivia admitted being Fitz’s mistress that way! What did you think?

Scandal “Heavy is the Head” Recap

Scandal is back! I repeat Scandal is back! And so is #Olitz! The episode begins with a little bait and switch with hypocrital Sally Langston (Kate Burton) narrating over an extravagant dinner for the Princess of Caledonia. The best part of Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) reunion is that we get to see her in formal wear again. She wore a couture Rubin Singer gown from the Fall 2015 collection. This Badgely Mischka Strapless Ruffled Gown ($670) is similar. You can also find it here.

Rubin Singer

The White House put out an official statement that Mellie (Bellamy Young) is ill, which is a lie that she is not happy about seeing as she is already dressed for the event in a J. Mendel Off-The-Shoulder Lurex Jacquard Gown ($4,900). This Ralph Lauren Off-The-Shoulder Jersey Gown ($190) is a less expensive alternative:

J Mendel

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) also wore a Rubin Singer gown from the Fall 2015 collection. Her scene with Liv talking about the Princess was great. That is totally something that would happen in real life! This Sophie House Prom Dress ($165) hasa similar color palette and feel.

Rubin SingerAfter the ball, Olivia gets a call from the Queen to report the death of the Princess. Olivia arrives on the scene and uses her trench coat to cover the body from paparazzi. This Calvin Klein Double-Breasted Belted Trench Coat ($99.98) is similar:


Olivia pays a visit to the Queen and the Prince and agrees to try to get the photos that were taken of the Princess’ body. She wore a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Woven Wrap Coat (sold out). This Jessie G. Women’s ‘Anastasia’ Wool Blend Vegan Leather Trim Wrap Coat ($89.99) is similar:

Vivienne WestwoodTrying to get the photos back means that Olivia and Quinn (Katie Lowes) have to pay off the paparazzi. Olivia wore this Draped Front Crepe Blouse by Jason Wu ($895) under her coat. This ASOS Drape Front Blouse With Keyhole Detail ($30) is similar:

Jason Wu

After they track down all of the paparazzi, except for one, Olivia has the brilliant idea to give them something else to publish, the tragic photo of a husband identifying his wife at the morgue. When Olivia returns to the office, she realizes that the last paparazzi, isn’t a paparazzi at all…She wore an Alexander McQueen Wool Military Jacket ($2,495) and carried the Prada Saffiano Lux Double-Zip Tote ($2,430). To recreate this look I found a Black Long Sleeve Peplum Waist Asymmetric Blazer ($29.43) and Michael Kors Selma Leather Medium Zip Satchel ($298):

Alexander McQueen

Olivia and Quinn crack the case with a little help from David Rosen (Joshua Malina). Fitz won’t agree to help as he doesn’t want to ruin his opportunity for Navy bases so Olivia confronts the Queen herself. She wore a black and white floral print peplum top. I found this Leaf Print Peplum Top ($24.99) to recreate the look:

peplum tp

Olivia discovers that the Queen is behind the Princess’ death, but she can’t do anything about it because of her non-disclosure agreement. She is able to tell the Prince the truth and he makes the Queen abdicate the throne for good. Olivia wore the Celeste Reversible Coat by Max Mara. I found two similar options in the reverse color, the first, this Vince Camuto Oversized Collar Belted Coat ($219) and the second this Forever 21 Belted Wool-Blend Coat ($69.90):


Out of nowhere, Olivia and Fitz are outed by Sally Langston, with photographic evidence…I wonder who was behind that?

What did you think will happen now that Olivia and Fitz have been outed?

Scandal “A Door Marked Exit” Recap

This week’s Scandal was a little to dark for my taste. The episode opened with Sally Langston (Kate Burton) murdering her husband. Who does she call the moment it happens? Why Cyrus Beane (Jeff Perry) of course. And what does Cyrus do? He helps her cover it up! I can’t believe they are getting away with the murder!

In the meantime, Olivia (Kerry Washington) tries to figure out the truth about her mother before her plan lands in Hong Kong. Olivia is still wearing  the collarless MaxMara jacket from the previous episodes. This Cotton Flannel Collarless Blazer ($98) is similar:

grey blazer

Quinn’s (Katie Lowes) plan at B613 is working the way she thought it would. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) implanted a tracking chip in her tooth and she immediately went to the bathroom to remove it. Before Eli (Joe Morton) can make his next move, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) captures him and plans to keep him until Maya Pope’s (Khandi Alexander) plane lands.

In a strange twist, Cyrus calls Charlie (George Newbern) to clean up Sally’s mess – he brings Quinn with him to help the clean-up.

Olivia is focused on finding Quinn as is upset with Huck for torturing her. Olivia wears a checkered Armani Collection jacket. This Kasper Four Button Tweed Lurex Jacket ($64.50) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 11.26.04 PMOnce James (Dan Bucatinsky) discovers Daniel Douglas’ death he goes straight to David Rosen (Joshua Malina) and tells him the whole story. David doesn’t believe him because of their last interaction with the election rigging and David losing his career over it.

Olivia finally confronts her father and figures out that her mother tricked her father into blowing up the plane. This is why he has kept her locked up for all of those years.

Quinn returns to Pope & Associates and Huck doesn’t have an apology for her. I don’ think that is the welcoming committee she was looking for. He tells her that she isn’t a gladiator anymore and she leaves. She goes back to Charlie, the only one that is on her side now.

Maya Pope’s plane never made it to Hong Kong and she is on the lose now – uh oh…

Jake (Scott Foley) comes to say goodbye to Olivia and professes his love for her, which is all sort of ominous, like we won’t see him again. Olivia wears a Dolce & Gabbana lace appliquéd boucle jacket ($1851.50). I found this AZI Jeans Peplum Lace Jacket ($158) to recreate the look:

Screen Shot 2014-01-04 at 12.08.37 AM

Sally’s secret isn’t very well-kept as Mellie (Bellamy Young) knows, her advisor knows and after a visit from someone at the NSA, David Rosen knows her secret too. This is going to come back to bite everyone…

In the end Olivia is on the phone with her father as he is headed back to B613, except when he arrives at his office he finds that he has been replaced by Jake. Olivia wears a Joie sweater. This Forever 21 Boho cardigan  ($27.80) fits the bill for this look:

Screen Shot 2014-01-04 at 12.35.51 AM

James decides that he won’t leave Cyrus as long as he is made White House press secretary, but I suspect that relationship is on its last leg.

Maya can’t resist calling Olivia at the end of the episode to taunt her.

What did you think about this week’s episode of Scandal? Personally, I am ready for Olivia’s parent story to be over, I hope this wraps it up soon.

Scandal “YOLO” Recap

We pick right up where we left off, with Huck (Guillermo Diaz) torturing Quinn (Katie Lowes) to find out what she has been doing with B613. Luckily, Quinn is saved by the phone when Olivia (Kerry Washington) calls Huck to tell him that her mother is still alive.

Olivia is still wearing  the collarless MaxMara jacket. This Cotton Flannel Collarless Blazer ($98) is similar:

grey blazer

Sally Langston (Kate Burton) is ready to run for president, but there’s a catch…she has to abandon her beliefs and become pro-choice. I guess you can’t get something for nothing…she sure gave that up fast.  Cyrus (Jeff Perry) is still reeling from James’ (Dan Bucatinsky) betrayal, but can’t confront him about it without admitting what he did.

Olivia is pretty much a mess after discovering her mother is still alive and the team spends most of the episode trying to figure out a way to help Mama Pope (Khandi Alexander) escape. Throughout the episode Olivia wears her MaxMara Eliana Coat ($4,173).  I still like the Michael Kors belted wrap coat ($158.40) as a look for less for this coat. I might be partial because I own this one myself.


Things eventually blow up once they help Mama Pope escape. Olivia realizes that she was really a wanted terrorist after all and that her father locked her up for a reason. Her father isn’t the monster…her mother is.

Cyrus confronts James and then confronts Sally after she submits her resignation. Once she sees the incriminating photos of her husband she ends up murdering him in a rage. WOW…totally did not see that one coming…WOW…

Last but not least, Charlie (George Newbern) rescues Quinn and he takes her to Wonderland. I am really confused about which side Quinn is on, hopefully that will become a little clearer in the future.

Scandal “Vermont is for Lovers” Recap

Last week on Scandal we learned that Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) mother is still alive. This week we learned that Eli (Joe Morton) has been keeping her prisoner for years. Now that Olivia has started asking questions, he has decided to move her out of the country so Olivia will never figure out that she is alive.

Quinn (Katie Lowes) is freaking out about killing a man…and guess what…the team is trying to figure out who killed him, so that makes things even worse for her. In the meantime, Josephine Marcus (Lisa Kudrow) needs the team for a project and Olivia runs off to meet with her. Olivia wears a white blazer and grey cowl neck shell. To recreate the look I found a Vince Camuto Blazer ($150) and a Calvin Klein Cowl Neck Blouse ($39):

white blazerI think she was wearing the Long Oval Sterling Silver Necklace from Arte Designs ($93):


Turns out that files and a laptop were stolen from the Marcus campaign and Josephine’s sister wants to point the finger at Governor Reston. Olivia disagrees and says that they should stay quiet and let the cops point the finger.

In the most disgusting scene in television history, Olivia’s mother tries to commit suicide to get out of her cell (So Gross!!!!!). This causes Eli to move her so they can provide her with medical care.

Mellie (Bellamy Young) and Cyrus (Jeff Perry) have a plan to catch Sally Langston’s (Kate Burton) husband with his pants down. They have maneuvered James (Dan Bucatinsky) into doing an interview with Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman) in the hopes that Daniel will hit on him and James will turn him down, thus giving him something to write about. Mellie plants the seed by telling Daniel that James and Cyrus have an open marriage.

Turns out Josephine’s sister didn’t take Olivia’s advice. She went ahead and did a press conference suggesting the the Reston campaign stole the campaign materials. Olivia is trying to keep her cool and sends Harrison (Columbus Short) to deal with the situation. Olivia wears a Chloe Contrast Mock Neck Sleeveless Top ($539) and her  Ippolita necklace ($695). To recreate the look for less I used a BCBGeneration Contrast Collar Top ($34) and  black onyx necklace ($95):

white blouse

Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) won’t leave Olivia alone and helicopters her into a cozy house in Vermont. Olivia wears a Dior houndstooth coat, Bajra scarf and Dorothy Gaspar gloves. To recreate this outfit, I found a pleat-back houndstooth coat from Chadwick’s ($99.99) and David & Young scarf ($19.50):


She also carries her trusty Prada bag, of which I found the look for less in the Michael Kors Selma Bag ($358):

pradaWe learn that Fitz built the house for Olivia, so they could live in it together one day. This seems to make her happy because she sleeps with Fitz again and rekindles their relationship. She tells him not to sell the house, so it sounds like she is still holding out hope that they will end up together.

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) discovers that Candice faked the break-in and asks Harrison to go talk to her. Little did we know that Harrison was sleeping with her (wow…). Olivia tells Josephine that she needs to fire Candice in order to move on with the campaign. Olivia wears a collarless MaxMara jacket. This Cotton Flannel Collarless Blazer ($98) is similar:

grey blazer

James finally realizes what Cyrus and Mellie were up to with the Daniel Douglas interview. He doesn’t take kindly to being their pawn and decides to go through with it by sleeping with Daniel (I DID NOT see that one coming!).

Then instead of firing Candice, Josephine takes the blame for stealing the computer and drops out of the election instead. This could free Olivia up to possibly work on another campaign…

The episode ends with Olivia’s mother escaping from Eli’s secure facility and confronting Olivia on her way home. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) confronts Quinn about who she is working for. This sure sets up the next episode for some big explosions! How do you think Olivia will react to seeing her mother again? What will Huck do to Quinn?
