The Team Learns That The Governor’s Wife Was Actually Having An Affair With The Man, And She Only Yelled Rape To Prevent Her Husband From Learning This. Meanwhile, We Learn That Mellie, Cyrus, Hollis, And Olivia Were All Part Of A Cover-Up. the Cover-Up Involved The Company That Suffered The Explosion. Apparently, The Company Made Software That Was Used On Voting Machines. It Seems That This Detail Also Fits Into The COnspiracy Somehow. However, In Tonight’s Episode, This Is All That We Learn About The Conspiracy. Olivia Learns That The Governor Did In Fact Know Of His Wife’s Affair, And He Premeditated The Murder Of Her Lover. Olivia Gets The Governor To Confess To This, However It Doesn’t Matter, As Olivia Can’t Turn The Governor In, Due To Attorney – Client Privilege. In The End, Olivia And The Team Were Played By The Genius Governor. We Also Learn That Olivia Wants To Revive A Relationship With Edison, But Can’t, Because She Isn’t Over Fitz. There’s Not Much More That I Can Say About This Episode Of Scandal, Except For The Fact That It Was Intriguing, Addicting, And All Around Awesome.

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.

This Episode Of  Touch {Like All of The Others} Was Dull and Repetitive. I have Really Begun To Dislike The Series. I Don’t See How The Series Managed to Get Renewed for A Second Season, But I Really hOpe That Season 2 Is Better Than This Season.  I recommend You Watch Touch, Only If  There Is absolutely Nothing Else On Television. Watch Touch Live: Thursday’s at 9/8C. On FOX.

This Episode Of Scandal Was Not As Impressing as the Rest of the Episodes during this season. I Found The Episode to Be Dull, Until The Last 10 Minutes. This Episode Did Introduce new Facts Though. Overall The Episode Was Good But Not Great. Watch Scandal Live: Thursday’s at 10/9C. On ABC.
