Scandal

When I checked the episode guide and saw that last night's episode was titled “YOLO,” I knew that things were going to get insane. And they did, quickly. Huck's in full-on torture mode. He's got a naked Quinn on the floor, tied up with duct tape, and is narrating the ways that he plans to hurt her. Because they are friends, he'll yank out her teeth with pliers instead of taking off toes or fingers. Thanks? At one point, he licks the side of her face and apologizes because he is going to enjoy hurting her; it is one of the creepiest TV moments I have ever witnessed.

After a surgical scandal involving a cardiologist brought St. Joseph Medical Center to its knees, the medical staff left behind struggled to move forward. Patients and doctors fled in droves after the scandal broke in 2009. Negative headlines beat at their morale. And many remaining employees believed the distant owner of the once-well-regarded community hospital in Towson was unresponsive, leaving them feeling abandoned. "It was difficult to face the reality that someone I trusted very much had failed us," said Dr. Gail Cunningham, a 23-year veteran who headed the emergency department and is now vice president of medical affairs.

The federal indictments handed down last week against 14 more corrections officers at the Baltimore City Detention Center in a massive jail scandal reinforce questions about whether officials have yet done enough to root out corruption at the facility. The latest indictments come on top of the 13 employees charged in April when the scandal broke and suggest that the wrongdoing there was even more widespread than initially reported. What's still unclear is how far up the chain of command the rot extended and whether all those who bear any responsibility for this mess have been called to account for crimes that apparently went on for years right under their noses.

A couple of disturbing images are floating around in my head after last night's episode, but before we get into all of that, let's pick up at last week's cliffhanger. Olivia's mom is alive, which isn't the biggest surprise in the history of this show. What is interesting is that Rowan held her prisoner for 20 years in a hidden cell in what looks like a very crappy hospital, for reasons that aren't 100 percent clear, yet. Charlie drops Quinn off at work, which is definitely not the most covert way for them to meet.

Always a team player, Mellie is in the middle of shooting a behind-the-scenes look at the East Wing, to rehab her image. Basically, she has to drone on about curating the White House's art, etc, poor thing. Flashback to 15 years ago in Santa Barbara. Fitz and Mellie are fooling around, with his dad yelling for them to get outside. He pries them from the bedroom and introduces them to Rocker Hair Cyrus, an incarnation of Cyrus Bean that is immediately both fascinating and terrifying.

Where was coverage in The Sun about the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hearings going on in D.C.? Oh, since another former Obama administration official invoked the Fifth Amendment with regard to another example of waste and abuse in this government culture without a "tone from the top," we can't be let in on that. Shame on you. Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville

Olivia's life isn't finished imploding, which is both entertaining and frustrating to watch. I think half of the joy of watching “Scandal” is being able to route for Olivia as she ruthlessly ensures the best outcome for her client. Even though her moral compass currently points nowhere near North, I like to watch her put powerful people in their place. I was beginning to worry that she had no fight left, especially when we open up to her begrudgingly eating Sunday dinner with Daddy Pope.

Your front page article on the scandals surrounding the gubernatorial candidacy of Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler included a photograph of former President Bill Clinton over the caption "Survived Monica Lewinsky scandal and impeachment trial" ( "Surviving scandal, or not," Oct. 26). One of the only good things to come out of this sordid chapter in U.S. history was that reporters as well as the public came to understand, if only briefly, the correct definition of the word "impeachment.

A gaffe about his opponent's race, allegations that he is the backseat driver from hell and, most recently, an indelible photograph of him in the middle of a wild party of teenagers - is Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler having the worst run a candidate for higher office can possibly have? In a word, no. The world of politics is as rife with setbacks - from lapses in judgment to serious crimes - as it is with examples of candidates and officeholders who have survived them.
