Scandal 04×09 ‘Where the Sun Dont Shine’: Fall finale fiasco

Damn you Shonda Rhimes.

Between the twists on Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder I need two apples on Thursday to keep the doctor away. So I really don’t know where to start because this episode went all over the place.

Be warned that the train of thought will go all over the place and nothing will seem coherent. Enjoy! Let’s get to it, onto “Where the Sun Don’t Shine!” Read the rest at…

It makes matters worse when the item in question turns out to be a lethal Ebola-like virus that causes Control to get involved.
