Jake (Scott Foley), Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) finally come to an agreement about how to handle Rowan (Joe Morton) and Jake gives up the files he has been hiding.
Meanwhile, Olivia gets a new client in Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi). I like that they agree not to like each other and stick to the job at hand. Olivia is wearing the Check Peplum Jacket from The Limited. It is sold out online, but you can still find it here on eBay.
In a sudden turn of events, Vice-President Nichols (Jon Tenney) is almost killed in a car explosion which is rumored to have been set by West Angolian terrorists. Mellie (Bellamy Young) is overcome with emotions and breaks all her rules to have sex with Andrew.
Olivia, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), and Jake (Scott Foley) decide to bring David Rosen (Joshua Malina) into the take B613 down club to have him help prosecute Eli (Joe Morton). Fitz is pleased that even though Olivia is with Jake, that he still has her number. Olivia isn’t that excited about it though.
Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) are on the case of Elizabeth North’s bugged phone, which they are able to pin to Cyrus (Jeff Perry). Olivia confronts him and he tells her the whole story about Michael (Matthew del Negro) and how he has to find out what Elizabeth has on him. Cyrus tries to convince Olivia to help him instead of Elizabeth. Olivia wears a sold-out Ralph Lauren Collection Marielle Drape-Panel Coat. This Tommy Bahama Woodley’ Sweater Coat ($298) is similar:
Cyrus is pretty upset about the whole situation and tries to avoid Michael to no avail. Huck tells Olivia that Michael did have access to Cyrus’ personal information, but never shared it with Elizabeth. For some reason he was loyal to Cyrus. Olivia wore a sold out Long Sleeve Blouse in Ivory by Derek Lam. This Vince Camuto Long Sleeve V-Neck Blouse w/ Inverted Front Pleat ($79) is similar:
Olivia confronts Michael and he leads her to Elizabeth’s private apartment which Huck is able to bug and stake out. Olivia wears an Alexander McQueen Herringbone-Boucle Cossack Coat (sold out). This Princess Seam Wool Coat ($59.99) is similar:
The scene between Mellie and Andrew was so sweet and then he had to go and ruin it by sleeping with Elizabeth North. Quinn’s stakeout ended up overlapping into Huck’s stakeout which he brought his son on. This turns into a disaster with his son witnessing him murder Kubiak.
Olivia tries to trick her father into having dinner as a distractions so she can get the upper hand. She can’t take command and Rowan ends up killing the president’s strike team. He cuts her off and tells her that he will no longer help her and that he is leaving. He has also got the upper hand on David Rosen making sure that all the files are blank.
That was a pretty dramatic episode, but this seems to be the one relationship Olivia can’t “handle.”
