Scandalizing Jesus: Discipleship, Allegiance, and Olivia Pope

Scandal is the latest show I've started watching since binge-watching House of Cards and reaching grief-stage 5. The show revolves around professional "fixer" Olivia Pope (played by the gorgeous Kerry Washington). A fixer is a crisis manager, an expert in public relations and the law. Pope's character is loosely based on real-life person Judy Smith, who represented figures like Monica Lewinsky and worked as Special Assistant and Deputy Press Secretary in George W. Bush's administration. What might distinguish Smith from the Pope character in Scandal, is that Pope is herself deeply-embedded in scandals—which simultaneously make her desperate to hide her own secrets and gives her leverage by hiding others'.
