The first episode of Scandal ends with the revelation that the president and Olivia have an ongoing and illicit romantic relationship. Hiding from the security cameras, Fitz pushes Olivia up against the wall of Oval Office and kisses her before being caught by the president’s chief of staff, Cyrus. Olivia uses this intense encounter to confront Fitz about his relationship with his “sweet baby,” White House intern Amanda Tanner.

First lady Mellie Grant has done many ethically questionable things, including lying about a miscarriage and intentionally inducing labor to prevent her husband from divorcing her. Her most scandalous act though was forging the president’s signature, reinstating him to office after the assassination attempt while he was still in a coma. Mellie justifies this by telling Olivia and Cyrus that they have to protect their secrets, because “we all got into bed with the devil, and nobody wants to go to federal prison.”

“Your legacy will remain untarnished, and so will mine,” Fitz sweetly tells Supreme Court Justice Verna Thornton, before holding her down and removing her oxygen mask, effectively killing her.

    One way not to wake up—next to a bloody dead girl named Wendy with no recollection of how she got there or how she died. That is how David Rosen started his morning in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” and he ends up lying to the police about the reported disturbance. Luckily for David, he has Olivia and the Gladiators help to move the body and stage it to look like a murder. But is it a coincidence that the man who keeps calling Wendy’s cellphone is the same man who has been flirting with Olivia?

    Poor Amanda Tanner. In a mere five episodes, she has an affair with the president, attempts suicide, uses her pregnancy for blackmail, and is kidnapped by an ex-CIA agent. Sadly, Amanda’s kidnapping leads to her murder, but nobody can know about it at first, not even her father. And if that’s not crazy enough, it is revealed that she was pregnant with the child of Billy Chambers, the vice president’s chief of staff, who later exposes the salacious love triangle.
