Honestly, even when the plot twists are over the top or ludicrous, nearly every word uttered on SCANDAL is worth repeating. The show’s writers love to shower the audience with gorgeous dialogue and challenge the actors to somehow cram all the lines into the allotted time frame. So while we’d love nothing more than to just print a transcript of the entire script, here are our five favorite lines from last night’s episode, “No Sun On The Horizon.” [Read more…]

SCANDAL: Katie Lowes and Guillermo Diaz Talk the Huck/Quinn Relationship in the Torture Aftermath

Right smack in the middle of its third season, ABC’s political drama SCANDAL took a deeper look into the murky spy world that Olivia Pope’s father runs. B13 is not just creating, trapping, blackmailing and coercing people into doing its dirty work, it also keeps them locked up for decades if it suits their purposes. Watching Olivia’s mother Maya working with OPA to find the perfect escape out of the country was trepidatious and stomach-churching. But for long-time fans, the real story was what was going on with Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes).

With Huck discovering that Quinn was working with B13, he was not about to go easy on her to find out what she knew and what she was doing that could hurt those he loves. Not for one second did we ever believe that Huck could truly hurt Quinn, but within just a few minutes of the episode opening, we knew that presumption was wrong. Two teeth later, blood on the floor and Quinn a sobbing, terrified mess, our worlds were shattered. In the SCANDAL-world, this simply should not be happening. Even Charlie (George Newbern) was flabbergasted to find Quinn tied up, naked, and bleeding all from Huck’s hands. That episode was a turning point. We would never look at Huckleberry Quinn the same again. They were no longer mentor-mentee, BFF’s or even co-workers. A line had been crossed and trust and hearts everywhere was shattered.

SCANDAL Scoop: Jeff Perry Reflects on How Badly Cyrus’ Honey-Trap Backfired!

It is said that politics makes strange bed-fellows, but truly Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) never expected that it would be a literal prophecy. In the drama series SCANDAL, the third season has taken an unexpected detour as we have seen how horrifically political maneuvering can destroy marriages, friendships and personal relationships. As the White House Chief of Staff, it is Cyrus’ job to always be in control of all the behind-the-scenes schemes and do everything to protect the President and keep him in office. Yet in Cyrus’ haste to quash Vice President Sally Langston’s (Kate Burton) independent bid for the presidency, he out-maneuvered himself — Cyrus put his own husband unwittingly in a “honey trap” and once James (Dan Bucatinsky) realized it, he turned the tables on Cyrus and took the honey-trap too far.
