The bulldog of the White House is about to be set loose on Scandal.
While Olivia (Kerry Washington) is dealing with the implications of Amanda's pregnancy — apparently with the president's baby — Chief of Staff Cyrus (Jeff Perry) is preparing for war, and not against an enemy of the state. Amanda Tanner (Liza Weil), Olivia Pope and her associates are actually the folks in his crosshairs...
Katie Lowes, Scandal
Scandal's resident new girl may seem innocent enough, but Quinn Perkins is about to go down an ethically questionable path when she gets too close to snooping reporter Gideon.
In his quest to break what he hopes to be a career-boosting story, Gideon (Brendan Hines) digs into the catalyst for why Amanda Tanner (Liza Weil) tried to kill herself shortly after quitting her job at the White House (apparently she had an affair with the president). Professional fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) takes on her case, knowing personally what a charmer President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) can be. But when Gideon starts getting too close to the story, Pope tasks Quinn (Katie Lowes) to find out what he knows — and that can only lead to bad places.

If you managed to catch the preview for this episode and Im not sure you could have missed it since it aired every half-hour for a week straight you knew the end was coming. Youre the man I want to want! wails Lorelai in the promo. So when she finally choked out those sad words in the episode, they kinda lost their kick-to-the-stomach-effect. Which was a shame, because the familiarity practically robbed us of her honesty. Its as if the lines were delivered by a woman on truth serum, admitting to one horrible thing after another: I still have feelings for Luke. I jumped. Ive always thought of you as a possibility (BTW: Chris, possibility is another word for backup. Ouch.) And then the Big Line. Chris took it well, actually. Who wants to hear that someone wants to love you, but you know, they just cant muster up the feelings? Interesting: Chris is a selfish jerk, but som...
Normally, I love to write about reruns, especially my favorite show. Theres sitting back all comfy on the couch, knowing whats going to happen next, but keeping an eye out for some of the things I might have missed. (This is GG, after all, and no mater how devoted you are, something great was going to zoom right past you.) Its fun catching those fly-by slys or finally understanding one of Michels bizarre jokes. (Am I the only one who sometimes has a hard time understanding his over-the-top French accent. Good thing for closed captioning!)But this was a repeat of The Long Morrow, the season premiere, and the first ep written by new show runner David Rosenthal. The first time it aired, there was no sitting cushy, there were no snacks and there was certainly no talking out loud. Not even during commercials. I was watching this ep the way Rory reads Camus under a tree on campus -- with complete concentration and absolutely no distractions. Do you reme...
Alright, is everyone calm? If not, take a deep breath. Another. One more. Are you all OK after that final scene? Good. So lets be rational for a few minutes. We knew it was coming. We knew Chris would tell Lorelai he loved her, that she was the one, that their night together felt right, that hed wait forever until she realized they were meant to be. (Yes, she was wearing a white gown and holding flowers. And he was dressed in what looked like a tie-less tux. But lets not digress.) It happened. Said. Done. Wait, youre probably saying. Why are we breezing right past this? Because it wasnt the most important part of the ep. Not by a long shot. Well get back to that later.It happened at the kitchen table, as things usually do in the Gilmore home. The identity crisis. It was pretty close to the whole who-am-I-where-am-I-going Tony Soprano moment, but over boxes of Pop-Tarts, not a crazy uncle and a really gross gunshot wound. How long have ...

Before I tell you what you'll find in my exclusive interview with Gilmore Girls CEO Amy Sherman-Palladino below, let me tell you what you won't: Any mention of the growing (at least based on the Ask Ausiello feedback I've been receiving) fan backlash involving a certain long-lost "turtle" named April and the tension her presence is creating between Luke and Lorelai. Judge me and my interview skills all you want, but I just didn't go there. That heated discussion would have hijacked the entire interview and, as a result, compromised my primary mission: to seize as much prattle as I could about this season's final six episodes, the show's future on CW and Team Palladino's highly publicized contract talks. Also, in the spirit of full disclosure, as much as I worship the ground AS-P
