10 pm Scandal (ABC) | Fitz and Sally seek endorsements by the NRA; Olivia and Huck make startling realizations. Oh, yeah — we’re also almost certain to find out who Jake shot. ‘Cause that was kind of a thing. (Per our reader poll, 32 percent of you say James, 20 percent David and 19 percent “someone else.”)

    It’s “Ovaries before brovaries” actually ;) Weird time to air a (V)Galentine’s Day episode 5 weeks too late. I guess the producers failed to account for the Olympics – or NBC is airing the episodes out of order.

    • Isaac says:

      Shows usually have a semi-floating timeline because its next to impossible to coincide each episode with a holiday, and maybe this is a ‘late-celebrating Galentines Day’.
      Not out of order because Ann left before Valentines day (if Pawnee timeline is the same as ours) and it would be odd if Leslie decided Ann’s replacement before Ann left.
      I find it more odd/irritating that the episode is entitled Galentine’s Day, which is the same title as a season two episode. I don’t like it when show’s do this. Desperate Housewives did the same thing.

  5. Melissa says:
