Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Scandal Was Great! In Tonight’s Season 2 Premiere, It’s Revealed That Quinn Is Wanted For Murder. Apparently, Quinn’s Name Was Lindsay. Quinn Got Angry At Her Boyfriend, And Sent A Package To His Job. Quinn’s Boyfriend Opened The Package, And It Exploded. The Explosion Killed Quinn’s Boyfriend, And Six Of His Co-Workers. Quinn Says That After The Explosion, She Made A Run For It, And Checked Into A Motel. Quinn Says That Someone Then Knocked Her Out, And She Woke Up In A Washington D.C. Hotel. Quinn Says That In The Hotel Room, She Found New Passports And Documents Laid Out For Her. Someone Had Virtually Given Quinn A New Identity. Olivia Acts As If She Doesn’t Know Who Knocked Quinn Out And Gave Her A New Identity. However, It’s Revealed That Olivia And Hucks Were The People That Knocked Quinn Out, And Gave Her The New Identity. There Weren’t Many Big White House Developments, Except For The Fact That Fitz & Mellie Learned That Their Baby Is Going To Be A Boy. Fitz Makes A Brief Phone Call To Olivia. It Seems As If The Two Of Them Still Have Feelings For Each Other. I’ve Been a Fan Of Scandal  Since Watching The Series Premiere, And I’ve Already Got Re-Acqauinted With The Show, Merely By Watching This Epic Season Premiere. Scandal Adequately Mixes In: Thrill, Mystery, Romance, Conspiracy, Humor, Among Many Other Things. Overall, Scandal  Is A Really Great Show, And I Would Definitely Recommend It. Watch Scandal Live: Thursday’s At 10/9C. On ABC.
