'Scandal' season 5 episode 16 preview: Susan Ross is still angry with David Rosen

Susan Ross is probably one of the nicest characters on "Scandal," but even she has a breaking point.

After discovering that her boyfriend, Attorney General David Rosen, has been cheating on her, Susan ended their relationship in last week's episode.

In the upcoming episode of "Scandal," titled "The Miseducation of Susan Ross," she makes it clear that she's still not over the betrayal.

Apparently, the two are still pretending to be in a relationship. The couple had only just gone public with their relationship when Susan discovered David was being unfaithful. Now, she doesn't want to announce the breakup to the public because she thinks it will make her look bad.

When David visits the presidential candidate's office to suggest that they just tell the truth, Susan gets angry.

"You know what people will understand when they hear that? That the person in the relationship with a penis, that's you, cheated on the person in the relationship without one, that's me. And that we are looking for away out that doesn't make me look bad," she says. "I don't want to fake it anymore either, but there is no version of us breaking up that looks good for me. Unless you're willing to say that I left you because you're an impotent alcoholic who hates kids, and dogs and God. Are you willing to say that?

She also refers to David as "stupid face."


Will Susan find out that her Chief of Staff, Elizabeth North was the other woman in David's life?
