SP010: Scandal Rewind Series – Sweet Baby S1 E1

Kelsey Bain, Poppy Williams, Olivia Linden on The Scandal Podcast | Scandal Rewind Series | Episode Sweet Baby


This episode of the Scandal Podcast, I was joined by Kelsey Bain of NOLAFeminizer.com, Poppy Williams of  WatchWithPoppy from Youtube and Olivia Linden from OliviaLinden.com. Everyone had a lot to say and we all had a blast!

Learn about Olivia’s prediction for OPA, Poppy’s opinion on OLITZ and Kelsey’s love dislike for Abby. We talk about which one of the cast members of Scandal skipped having to audition for @ShondaRhimes and who only had four lines in the pilot and was not a recurring cast member until the middle of the second season!

Quotable Moments for the Sweet Baby Episode

One of the biggest differences this season was Steven.  I don’t think if he was in season two he would have let a lot of what happened in season two go down. – Poppy
I like the awkward moment at Camp David, when she’s talking to Mellie and then Fitz comes out.  Cyrus and Mellie were just kind of waiting to see how they’re going to react to each other and he’s just so happy to see her. – Olivia
When Cyrus learns about the affair.  He walks in and you kind of see his face kind of slowly, like what did I just walk in on? -Kelsey
You’re the bad guy in ghost, you got dragged off by demons, so I don’t know what you’re doing here. – Poppy
When I found out that her daddy basically sold her into marriage to Fitz, that’s when I started questioning how she really felt. – Olivia
