I've never reviewed an episode of a TV show before but I just had to type out my reaction to this one because it blew my mind and left me reeling.

Rich kid gets falsely accused of rape but not for the money. It's because he raped the best friend of this fake victim, Rachael, 4 years ago and paid her off. Rachael eventually suicides on pills. So the kid gets off here but then Olivia convinces the mother that he needs to pay for his crimes and his own mother turns him over to the cops. Talk about betrayal. I no longer want Olivia Pope on my side. If she was getting me out of a something I didn't do and found out that I did something underage before, I'd bet she'd turn me in for that. I also don't understand how a mother could betray her child like that. It's unforgivable. Don't get me wrong, I am very much against rape and sexual abuse but there was no way this was going to come back to him and if you really loved your child you'd try to help him yourself not throw him to the police hounds. I'm a bit surprised at my own outrage. What the boy did was really wrong and he needed help but the lack of family loyalty is even more appalling to me. Self-righteous mothers make my blood boil.

On the Amanda Tanner side, a lot is going on. Giligan the reporter is still sniffing, Amanda makes a secret phone call, someone sends in a CD with an audio recording of the President and Amanda Tanner having sex and it turns out Amanda is pregnant. Oh and Cyrus plays the President and Olivia against each other. Talk about drama.

My main crib about this show the actor they cast to play the President. Maybe after seeing Micheal Douglas in The American President my standards are too high but his face is so drab and boring as is his performance. I wasn't too fond of the new girl to the firm but I'm getting used to her.
