Everyone grieves in different ways. For Mellie (Bellamy Young) on Scandal, mourning Jerry Jr.'s death involves less denial and anger, and more, well, perhaps Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) said it best: "I have dealt with drunk Mellie, smelly Mellie, screw-everything-to-hell Mellie, eat-everything-that-is-not-nailed-down Mellie.

Don't worry, Mel. We'll get through this together.
