#Scandal: Season 3, Episode 6 – Icarus [Full Video]
“Scandal’s” Liv may be flying too close to the sun in her quest for the truth about her mother’s death. She’s got the broad strokes of the truth: her father’s in charge of B613, her lover was not at Operation Remington and her mother was killed in a plane crash. These pieces paint the background of her history, but no one will tell her what it means.
When Liv questions her father about his last words to her mother, she’s looking to absolve some of the pent-up guilt she’s been harboring for years. She didn’t tell her mother she loved her before she left on her final trip. That can eat away at you when you stop to think about it. And now Liv has people to take out her anger on. But will they ever give her the truth?
One is only allowing a single question with one-word answers: No, Papa Pope did not order Mama Pope killed. The other is falling back on plausible deniability: “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Fitz says. They’re both inches away losing Liv completely.
