Scandal Minds Want to know

imageWell at least this Scandal Mind!  Oh, I have the obvious questions like all other Scandal fans…”Who is behind the shooting of Fitz? Was Olivia in on the voter tampering from the beginning?; How will Fitz shut Sally down and save Mellie’s butt?; Did he hear the conspirators three discussing the voter fraud while laying in his coma bed? Etc, Etc!

However, I’ve been pondering a few others that on the surface don’t seem that important but which I think could turn out to be germane to the story in the long run.  First up, what did Mellie do that makes her want Fitz’s forgiveness so much and why can’t he truly give it to her?

imageCould it have something to do with her expert forgery of his name on that letter of reinstatement and her comment that she did it a ton of times before when he was Governor of California?  It would certainly have been as illegal then, as it is now so why was she forging his signature back then.

Second, are Olivia and Huck related?  They obviously have a very close relationship and are dedicated to each other but where does that come from.

image I never thought of them as possibly being related until the comment from Huck to Olivia asking her not to “tell him who to love since he doesn’t tell her.” That sounds more like a comment one family member would to another than an associate or even a close friend.

And finally, what does it mean that the redhead woman from season one is back?  I re-watched a couple of last years episodes over the holidays to see if I missed anything about the conspiracy and while watching the episode that flashed back to when Olivia and Fitz first met on the campaign trail, I noticed something.


The campaign worker who suggested to Fitz that they address issues more to the right of the political spectrum is the same White House employee who tried to give Olivia instructions about Mellie’s closet and who also asked her if she was back to work after Fitz was shot.


Since nothing that occurs on this show is ever random, I’m wondering what part the redhead will end up playing in the story.
