Who's the 'Scandal' Monster Now?
Better the devil you know than the one that just came back from the dead?
All through this week's episode, Olivia and team are trying to protect her mom from Eli/Rowan's machinations. They try to get her on a flight to Hong Kong, but when Rowan puts Maya on the no-fly list, Liv has to call in the president to put her on a military plane.
But as Olivia's memories come creeping in, she remembers a phone call right after Maya said goodbye for the last time. The man on the phone called her "Marie." And the name on the no-fly list, the name of the supposed deadly terrorist?
"He's not the monster," a horrified Olivia whispers as the plane takes off. "She is."
Who's sorry now??? #Scandal— Joe Morton (@JOEtheMORTON) December 6, 2013
Why are we surprised? They should rename this show from "Scandal" to "Roller Coaster Ride of Insane Plot Twists."

What else happened this week? Seriously, what didn't happen this week would be the easier question to answer! But we'll try our best to wrap our minds on it all:
Mama Mia: That Liv isn't rocking herself in a corner is beyond us. Her. Dead. Mother. Is. Alive. Not much time for bonding though, since Rowan and B-613 are hot on their trail. The gladiators need to get Maya out of the country, stat. Olivia uses some connections to find her a safe place in Hong Kong, but they need a way to get her out of the country once Rowan puts Maya (using a fake name, "Marie") on the no-fly list. When Fitz finally uses his presidential powers to make it happen, at first, Liv says a no-nonsense goodbye. It takes Abby, of all people, to stir up her emotions. Liv runs to her mom and they exchange a sad, tearful goodbye. But this jogs Olivia's memories of the last time they said farewell, leading her to remember that a man called that morning asking for "Marie."
Pulling Teeth: The last episode ended with Huck confronting Quinn with his array of torture devices. He's not even that mad about her betraying him, but he's really mad at her betrayal of Olivia. So, she's gonna lose a tooth or two over that!
Huck of all people just said "YOLO" and I can't handle it. #Scandal— Natalia Buia (@itsbooyeah) December 6, 2013
But Liv needs him more than he needs to torture her, so Charlie saves a shivering, crying Quinn. Out of gratitude, she totally sexes him up and goes along with him to B-613.
