Who run it?

Who run it? Who run it? Based on Olivia Pope’s first soliloquy of the night, Rowan Pope is the last dragon who possesses the power of the glow. She says as much in the first scene of “Say Hello to My Little Friend,” the fourth episode of season three of Scandal, as she instructs Jake Ballard to get out of her house for his safety and her mental stability.

That and to stop being a killjoy.

Fighting unhealthy levels of emotional attachment was all the rage last night, because right after we see Jake make his exit, we’re treated to the sight of David Rosen and Abby on a date. Abby continues to be a commitment phobe and David ultimately gets sick of it, telling her that if she isn’t going to make a choice, he’ll make it for her. So he dismisses her, only to fall back into her redhead of madness after she sexts him. Don’t you dare judge for that—we’ve all fallen for that okie doke at one time or another.

And in Abby’s case, it’s probably best to speak as little as possible.

Then there’s Quinn, who feigns concern over Huck’s supposed odd behavior. Huck is an oddball all the time, though, and after Quinn followed him to an AA meeting and figured out his real addiction—KILL! KILL! KILL!—her little inquisitive mind starts to pester the hell out of him for details. No fool, Huck knows that Quinn isn’t posing as Barbara Walters in an effort to channel her inner Dr. Drew. No, Quinn wants to get her Dexter Morgan on and Huck is trying to spare her that ugly reality by pleading with her to press pause on such dark curiosity.

Quinn represents a nagging theme among most of the characters of the show: not knowing when to leave well enough alone.

Speaking of, Olivia Pope & Associates’ new client, Senator Richard Meyers, is a philandering husband way too into sending explicit photos of himself to several different women and coupling it with dirty talk. To the confusion of many, his wife Shelly has stayed by his side, swearing that he’s a changed man. Not long after comes proof that he’s still out there sending dick pics via SMS. If this sounds familiar, then you’ve heard of Carlos Danger. Law & Order: SVU also took on Weiner’s sexting scandal this week, so for Huma Abedin-Weiner’s sake, maybe it’s time to drop that zero and get with a hero (Hillary Clinton 2016).
