The spice of Scandal has officially returned in full swing. Shonda Rhimes has given the fans what we’ve been waiting for all season. The intensity of sitting on the edge of our seat has returned to the show. No one was honestly expecting that it was going to involve a sex tape with Fitz and Mellie’s teenage daughter. Now that we think of it what happened to the baby they had a few seasons ago? Mellie hasn’t nurtured or mentioned the little one for some time now. Either way, the Scandal we’ve all falling in love with is back.

Found lying across a bed with only her undergarments on, Olivia and Quinn find her intoxicated and almost unconscious. Once successfully getting her out of the house-party properly called #Swaggapalooza the hop on a chopper to her parent’s home. The shocker came in when a video was sent to her phone with footage of Karen having a threesome. Sadly, she could only remember one guy that evening she had relations with.




The essence of Liv has also returned in full throttle. Once getting Karen back the white house she gets Fitz to find what’s important in the situation outside of getting angry. She reminds him that she needs a father at this time. Later on she gets to work on the case of disposing the footage. Once working on tracking down the info she find the boys parents and meets with them. Surprisingly, the parents try to extort Liv for 2.5 million to turn over the footage. Once convincing Fitz to simply pay the money she returns to the parents again. As she met with them again to make the exchange the tables turn when she realizes their motives even more and threatens to expose their identities for consuming child pornography.
