SCANDAL: Scandal is now in its fourth season. Right now Olivia is stuck in the love triangle of two men, one who is the President of the Unite States and the other a Captain, who use to be Command for a brief moment. Here is the kicker, both men have committed murders and in both cases either A. the bodies will not be recovered or B. it was done so discreetly and at the right time that no one would ever know.
Sally Langston, the former Vice President who served alongside President Fitzgerald Grant his first term in office, killed her husband after finding out he slept with a man. Sally always knew he had issues and couldn't keep to himself but once she saw the proof she completely lost it. Only a few people knew she killed her husband and they staged it to make it look like he had a heart attack in his sleep. She went on to run against Fitz during his second term run for President.
Moving up to speed in Scandal's S4E8 "The Last Super" Poppa Pope aka Command aka Olivia's father is sitting in a restaurant with Olivia who is setting him up to be arrested; at this point they have snipers on the roof and surrounding the restaurant and as Poppa Pope is giving his speech to Olivia about how she's betrayed him, he makes her aware that he's taking out the snipers who are waiting to take him out if he doesn't cooperate. The bodies of the snipers start hitting the ground; Poppa Pope doesn't flinch; he finishes his speech, walks out the door and gets in his nice Government vehicle and rides off. Like nothing every happened. The whole time Jake, The President and his staff are all watching and listening as this is taking place. Not the mention Olivia's mother who has also done her share of killing including blowing up an aircraft that killed 300 plus people; the public doesn't know she exist.
Annalise's students from HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER could learn a thing or two from the Scandal characters. They commit murders, cover them up, bury bodies where they can never by found and if they are found they pin it on the next, worthless, jobless Joe or stage it to look like something else completely, continue living their lives, and on to the next one. This is why I jokingly say Scandal could take on the title of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER with no problem!
Where we are right now; we have a defense attorney (Annalise) who is married to a professor who slept with a student who has been found murdered and now they just discovered she was 6 weeks pregnant and it's suspected that it's the baby of Sam, Annalise's husband.
I found myself laughing as I watched both 'Scandal' and 'How To Get Away With Murder' back to back. In one show, 'Scandal' everyone is getting away with murder and in the other show 'How To Get Away With Murder' evidence is flying everywhere, people are scrambling and bodies are being found and the plot behind it all is so Scandalous!
Not only does Annalise have a cheating husband but she has also been caught slipping it to another man by one of her students. Annalise's husband Sam has also had a relationship with Annalise's assistant Bonnie. Bonnie found out everything from Sam about his relationship with the student that has been found dead. Bonnie also found out that he knew she was pregnant. As she received this information Sam went on to kiss her! WHAT? Yes this is a mad house, literally! Not only that we now have the lives of the students who are working for Annalise coming to the light and there is nothing but Drama.
ANNALISE'S COURT CASE S1E8: The case Annalise worked on in "He Has A Wife" was about a women who has a condition of sleep walking. She woke up to assume that she killed the nanny in her sleep. They have the accused on video outside with the nanny's dead body trying to wash away the evidence. By the end of the episode Annalise has discovered, with the help of a student that the husband of the accused was sleeping with the nanny. He caught a sexually transmitted disease from her and then the son came to him with the same sexually transmitted disease, which made the father aware that the nanny was also sleeping with the son. The husband of the accused then set up his wife, making sure she would have an episode of sleeping walking the night he decided to murder the nanny. Annalise called him out on this on the stand and he was arrested by the end of the episode. To my point, no one is really getting away with murder on 'How To Get Away With Murder' as they are on 'Scandal' therefore I jokingly say, with my proof on the table that the shows should definitely have a title swap.
