The words "whiskey," "tango," and "foxtrot" stand for the letters W, T, and F in the international NATO Phonetic Alphabet, a military and law-enforcement system for clearly spelling out words and phrases during radio and other audio transmissions. In combination, the initials "WTF" are an early 21st Century abbreviation standing for "What the Fuck?" (See also the Trivia section for the eponymous season 3 episode of "The Good Wife.")

Scandal - Whisky Tango Foxtrot
11 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With Pres Fitz gulping Scotch and wallowing in misery, feeling betrayed and shutting out everyone close to him, Olivia has a fresh case on her hands: David awakens to find a dead woman in his bed, a knife in his hand, and blood all over the place. Someone has set him up and Olivia and her team will need to find out who that is. This dead woman dug up dirt by getting men she was sleeping with to provide her secrets or roofied them, fishing for stuff while they were under. This time someone took her out, so Olivia and her team make sure the body is moved and his apartment is clean of any incriminating evidence. Meanwhile, CIA operatives were captured by terrorists with Fitz perhaps deciding on sending in a Seal team. What he doesn't realize is that he has a mole among his staff, learned when his Seal team find no one at the location where the captives were being held (wrong address based on faulty intel). Cy is agonizing over Fitz isolating him out from helping in decision making and not taking his opinions, while Mellie decides to throw him under the bus, claiming to Fitz that is was all Cy's idea to pursue the rigging in Defiance. A christening for Cy and James' child brings Olivia and Fitz in the same proximity, and the two have one last sexual encounter before the Pres says they are done! Abby feels guilty as David's career as District Attorney is over and the only job he could find was teaching at a local college. Rightfully blaming Olivia, David's life couldn't get much worse but in his troubles, he might just be able to help Pope & Associates uncover why a flash drive in his computer has highly classified military and White House secrets, put in his computer by the dead girl found murdered by him in his apartment. Scott Foley joins the show as a highly decorated military officer who wanted information from the dead girl prior to her murder, and he is shown spying on Olivia, with cameras in every room of her home! In my opinion the best scene has David setting his successor to the office he once occupied straight regarding what would happen if he was prosecuted with nothing substantial, while Harrison has little to do but watch. Olivia's swimming and Fitz is liquoring up to hold off their miseries apart. Mellie's angling to have her man all to herself, with attempts to sex up Fitz in the shower and claiming Cy was the initiator in the Defiance scam is revealing of what kind of master manipulator she really is.
