Those who watched "Scandal" on ABC on Thursday, March 14, couldn't help but see how many times Olivia Pope tried to cover up Kerry Washington's baby bump as if viewers didn't know she is expecting next month.
A writer of an article on Hello Beautiful listed, described and showed pictures of 15 scenes in which Pope covered Washington's belly.
Usually viewers would see Olivia running around fixing things and talking. However, in this week's episode she sat quite a bit.
Olivia is known to wear solid outfits, but she was seen in quite a few busy printed outfits in contrast to that form-fitting white coat with a belt she wore last season. She still wore a coat, but it was an oversized black coat.
She dressed like the Olsen twins in one scene where she had on layers of clothes including an oversized sweater, multiple scarfs and busy prints.
Viewers saw a lot of Liv's oversized Padra handbags that she held in front of her stomach in more than one scene.
Liv was shown in several scenes from her shoulders up. When she talked to Fritz on the phone, it was hard to see her as she sat in the dark with large chairs, lamps and a table taking up most of the camera space. She was sitting way in the back of the room with the focus only on her head.
When Liv took dinner to Jake, the food was in a giant white plastic grocery bag conveniently held right in front of her stomach.
We have never seen Liv fold her arms in front of her as much in other episodes as she did in this week's show.
It was obvious that the producers went out their way to camouflage Kerry's pregnancy.
