I can see why so many people detest the FIrst Lady, given her ability to pathologically lie and removed off any compassion. However, what many people dont see is her loyalty. Not to America or the White Office, but to herself and her President. What she did in this episode was absolutely astounding, I applause her for saving the day. And even though the relationship between Fitz and Olivia is so heart breaking and alluring, there is no way for Fitz to be with Olivia unless he resigns his presidency. Which makes him look really bad. Therefore, the First Lady had all rights to do what she did - including telling Olivia to back off. Even though the audience probably roots for Olivia and Fitz to one day be together, the First Lady IS the one Fitz is married to. She's been with him for over 15 years. Even though time isn't an excuse for anything, there's just no other way to do this.

The Vice President, on the other hand.... hahahahahah... nothing good I can say about her. What a lying, scheming snake.

All in all, what a great season! I really can't until September - guess we're going to have to wait a while to find out who Quinn actually is.

This episode had so much I don't know where to start. I'll go to the end. Cyrus behind Amanda's death. At first I thought he was him, then I changed my mind and thought it was the Vice President, then I thought it was the First Lady. I'm really off on this show. I love it. So many turns and twist. I think that is how politics really is. I hate the vice president.

I have to thank the previous commentors. I was beginning to think that I missed something about Quinn, but now I know nobody knows her secret. I need to go back and watch the first episode when she was recruited to be on Olivia's team. So many secrets revealed and so many yet to find in the next season. I can hardly wait. What a great new show! I'm hooked.

My jaw is still on the ground....

I can't...I just can't! Dsjfklajdf!!!!!!!

The president and Olivia's story is so heartbreaking. It reminds me of Meredith and Derek from the earlier years of Grey's. The way he looks at her with those sad eyes and the way she looks at him..it's just UGH...unbearable.

The first lady is a b*tch. Excuse my language, but what a vindictive and horrible excuse for a woman. I understand she's in a loveless marriage, but damn. It wouldn't surprise me one bit that she still has something to do with the murder of Amanda Tanner.

But what did shock me was that it was Cyrus. Olivia knew but everyone brushed it off like I did. There was no way he could do it...no way! And then BAM! He did and just talked about it like it was nothing while he was gardening....ASKLFJALKJFLASJFA!!!!!!!

Okay I'm done being a 5 year old lol. I'm just so in love with this show. Masterfully written, well executed, superb acting; there hasn't been a show like this on TV in a long time. Job well done Shonda Land!

Excellent finale. I liked the way Huck promised Olivia that HE wouldn't kill Billy; but I'm sure that Huck had Charlie do it and make it look like suicide; we'll see in September. Whoever Quinn is, she is not a criminal because the US Attorney General didn't arrest her, but instead took her back to Olivia and company. Didn't know that Steven knew Olivia's secret.
Never saw it coming thay Cyrus was behind Amanda's murder.

Another great finale by a great team of writers and actors. I liked this show from the beginning. Now I love it. Let's hope it stays on the great road like Grey's Anatomy and not the bad road like Private Practice.

continued...Poor Gideon, I knew he was a goner after he slept with Quinn and figured out who Amanda was having an affair with. I hope that Billy is dead, and I think the Vice President is a two-faced b*tch, and I was glad that the president put her in her place. I love this show, though I loath politics and politicians...its just so well written and riveting!

I totally agree with Jorden, I, too suspected Cyrus was behind Amanda Tanner's murder, he's such a rattlesnake! Huck and his creepy, dead eyes gives me nightmares, and David is just so sexy. Though the first lady is obviously a political animal, and not a kind or compassionate person, I thought she was perfectly within her rights to demand that Olivia give her her husband back...Olivia could never run away with Fitz, that's a pipe dream. The country needs it's leader, and I think he could have probably gotten away with divorcing his wife while he was still just governor, if he was truly so in love with Olivia. But why buy the cow when you get the milk for free, as the saying goes. I can't wait to find out who Quinn really is, and I am sure it isn't some criminal mastermind, because as everyone noted, most people are smart enough NOT to remove a blade or scissors from a major artery, lest the victim bleed out, which is exactly what happened here. Poor Gideon, I knew he was a goner after he slept with Quinn and figured out who Amanda was having an affair with. I hope that Billy is dead, and I think the Vice President is a two-faced b*tch, and I was glad that the president put her in her place.

The thing with the scissors bothered me a lot. I remember being a relatively small child when I learned...and I'm pretty sure it was in school...not to remove an object from a deep puncture. When I was older I learned it was really bad to remove it if it was close to a major artery. All I'm saying is that it better be a device to show how naive and clueless Quinn really is. This episode felt like a mid-season climax more than a finale. I suppose that's because if it were a normal 13 or 22 episode order it would have been mid-season. I can't wait for next fall!
