Quotes:
[first lines]
Mellie Grant:Fitz. Fitzgerald! There are nine other bedrooms in this place besides our room and this nursery. You are sweating up the baby's sofa. I will have to have it cleaned.
President Fitzgerald Grant:If I sleep in one of the other bedrooms, the staff will know.
Mellie Grant:So then they'll know.
President Fitzgerald Grant:Mellie, if the staff knows, then the press will know in under 24 hours.
Mellie Grant:Good for them.
President Fitzgerald Grant:Really? You're fine with the press knowing that we don't sleep in the same bed?
Mellie Grant:Tell the press that pregnancy is making me toss and turn, so you're sleeping in another bed so that I can be more comfortable, tell them that you have been staying up late in bed trying to come up with new ways to keep America safe and Democratic and free, and you don't want to disturb my pretty little head with all that thinking. Or tell them that I don't want to spend my nights sleeping next to a man who gets erections in his sleep dreaming of Olivia Pope. Your choice. I don't care.

Drama on all levels, shocking end, 24 March 2013

Scandal never loses its momentum and never lets up on the pace. Conspiracies and issues get bigger and bigger. Characters have two faces and no one knows what will happen next. The end of this episode made my jaw drop literally. I've complimented the cliffhangers on this show before and I'll say it again they might just be the best on television.

This episode deals with a missing college student and the downsides to diplomatic immunity. At the same time Mellie proves that she knows how to play the game of politics. I do pity the President a bit for being involved with two very capable women.
