Season two takes over where season one left off. It delves more into the past of Olivia's employees and how they became such loyal employees.

Plot lines bounce around like a ball on a pinball table. You think you know where it's going then it doesn't go there. Save some time for when you can binge watch and enjoy the ride. End-of-episode cliff-hangers aren't quite as shocking as in season one, but still worthy.

Scandal: (ABC’s Drama Series; Season Two: Episodes 01-22): I overall have a strong distaste for seeing and hearing humans and their outer actions; (I am much and mostly misanthropic when it comes to outer portrayed persona…I am although and however, amiable toward inner championed spirit, which can be seen and heard in any animated form). On a purely positive part, there are comforting correlations, in that other somas and souls, as like mine, are as well and are also very much imaginative and are also very much, beings of bold imagination. Scandal’s Second Season, as I thought, went as how the title might have suggested. I liked the respected variances from character to character. There is much a myriad of plentiful paranoia and stages of distrust in the characters. But I suppose, we’re all a bunch of schismatic somas of impetuous, divided mind. There are a plentiful plethora of paths that lead to enlightenment and destruction; of which one’s we choose to travel, become our personal paths. Ever wonder what imaginary beings look like…look in a mirror. I appreciated the admirable qualities that some sapient seeking characters displayed; to have had the risking and wanting for resolve, and to try to amend situations that have been permeated and saturated in layers of lattice laced lies, is in all seriousness and all veracity, much akin to like barbarian and berserker, weapon-wielding warrior, having internal bravery and fighting resolve. To me this show’s setting, this makeshift setting like all makeshift settings, is perfect sample to show the ample state of our feral fantasies being wedded off in mass-produced and mass-manufactured forms of (fictionalized) fate. This coming from my makeshift, non-existing existent world, means about as much…as what? Of said modern day and its dramas, dilemmas, and situations, I do not have a strong sense on where I stand or with whom of this show and its creators that I might be aligned; additionally, I do not have a strong sense on where I stand or on how I might be aligned with anyone. With respects to said modernism, I generally feel equally confused and equally clairvoyant while watching and listening to such shows and series as like this one; and with regards and respects to me, and while with these sort of shows having supposed said modern men and supposed said modern women in said supposed modern situations, the confusion and clairvoyance continues to plague and pester me. I will say that the settings of this show allowed for wider and wilder character roles to be displayed. I am not much into sexual situations, “predator-therapist kind of analysis”, or dishonesties as this show has in mass abundances; but none-the-less, “Scandal” felt quite, adamantly engaging and super suspenseful. To me, “Scandal” was an attractive intuitive and intelligent piece; but like “Grey’s Anatomy” and like any drama drenched, love-law, saturated story of said modern day or any day, I have serious reservations with wanting to watch and listen to such cinema and written word dialogues. I feel I am possibly being cajoled into liking “Scandal” for its possible, on purpose, provocative scenes. Given my (dis)position and/or said supposed (dis)position in this said existence/non-existence, I am unsure on how to feel. When it comes to lies and people wielding them, I tenaciously and tremendously hate how words are not given respect that they so desperately deserve. From my sincere and pretentious pores, comes this daily breathe of mine, to speak boldly on, of, and about mine own banality. Oh, and on an arbitrary note, every time Liv’s phone rang, it made me remember a similar sound from Capcom’s “Breath of Fire” menu screen. “Scandal” was scintillating and lively-livid; as for portrayal, “Scandal” showed best, what colors best, it best represented in betrayal. “Scandal” was in all seriousness, scandalous; and its ending was excellent. At any rate…Rating: 5.0/5.0 Xandor Who

The premise is that Olivia is the absolute moral authority on what is just because she is morally superior (shes the pope get it?), therefore her ends justify any means. Memorable quote: The last person I falsely accused was murdered. Her muscle -- henchman employee likes to inflict pain for its own sake. Memorable quote: inflicting torture wow what a rush! Let's see if I got this plot right--CIA is spying in the bedrooms of its own govt and everyone else--but actually the person who tries to blow the whistle on this secret spying is the real bad guy. Chinese boxes of plot convolutions, entertain us, no doubt, but it's just fascism. Big brother/sister needs to control us and know all our activities because he's all knowing, morally superior and all powerful, just like Olivia! the charismatic leader to adolescents-- a modern cynical nancy drew. The pope is a sympathetic heroine to adolescents in love with romeo and updated for the modern gerll with a power drill. How shocking. Yawn

*In episode 13: Cyrus, while standing naked, is speaking to his naked standing husband, James*…Cyrus: “I helped steer the country, but my name will never be in the history books…My name will never be on an airport or a doctrine.”…“Being the guy behind the guy is as far as my road goes.”…”But the peak,…the pinnacle,…is the rarest of air in my lungs, (and) is happening right now. This is as high as I get to climb. This is the top.”
