Yeah, this does seem like going in circles at this point...

I don't think Gandalf was "humiliated" in the White Council scene in the slightest. He's naturally going to have to explain himself to the Council when he arrives at Rivendell under strange circumstances and presents some fairly extraordinary claims to its senior members. That's not making him always "answerable" to the Council, it's making him answerable within the context of the scene. It makes perfect sense. What I'm getting is that some people want a very simplistically-rendered Gandalf who is always absolutely superior at every moment in the story, even when it would simply not make much narrative sense.

Allow me to also differ on Gandalf's relationship with Galadriel. I think it's fascinating.
