20 Times You Literally Couldn’t Even With ‘Scandal’

Scandal is in full swing and the residents of Shondaland could not be happier. Although the show’s glory days were predicted to be in its past, Pope and the Grant administration keep surprising us with new plot twists every week. In honor of the show bieng renewed for a seventh season, we simply had to celebrate. We have scoured the depths of the internet to find you the best moments from past seasons of the show.

Sit back, grab a bottle of wine and a bowl of popcorn, and enjoy.

1. When Olivia and Fitz hooked up for the first time in OG Season 1.

2. When Huck and Quinn got hot n’ heavy and we didn’t know if we loved it or were extremely disturbed by it.

Can we be both?

3. When Fitz was shot before his 50th birthday. 

Talk about a mid-life crisis.

4. And VP Sally Langston thought she could slither her way into the Oval Office with no interference.

5. When Mellie legit induced labor so Fitz wouldn’t divorce her.

6. When Verna Thornton threatened to tell everyone about Defiance County.

Oh you know, where the Grant campaign rigged the presidential election.

7. And Fitz promptly responded by killing her.

As any logical man would.

8. When Olivia took a quick pause from her “All roads lead to Fitz” lifestyle and got with B613 hottie Jake Ballard.

9. That is, until she found out he was stalking her immediately afterwards.

Ugh. Don’t you just hate when that happens?

10. When we found out that Olivia’s dad, Rowan, is the mastermind behind B613.

Her daddy issues are well-deserved.

11. And that her presumed dead mom was actually alive.

Oh, and her Mommy issues.

12. Or when we found out that Fitz was the pilot who shot down a commercial airplane for Operation Remington.

13. When Jake Ballard took command of B613.

14. When Fitz and Mellie’s son, Jerry, was murdered.

15. And then Olivia ran away to “stand in the sun” with Jake.

16. When Olivia was taken hostage and we had absolutely no idea what was going on.

Hair not so on fleek.

17. And then Fitz goes to war with West Angola because Liv’s kidnappers told him to.

His judgement was questionable at best.

18. And in the midst of all of this, Mellie announces that she would be running for president in 2016.

19. Oh and did we mention that Mellie was responsible for Rowan murdering the Jurors of the B613 trial?

20. But it’s all ok because Fitz FINALLY chose Olivia.
