This episode kicked off with Sally (Kate Burton) dropping the affair bomb to the public with photographic proof this time! Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) rushes down to the Oval Office to confront Abby (Darby Stanchfield) and Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) about what has happened. He is stuck on how the photos were leaked, but it’s too late for that, that pictures are already out there. I liked Elizabeth’s black and white blouse and found this similar Brigitte Bailey Abbey Blouse ($35.99):
So what does Olivia (Kerry Washington) do with this? She runs away to a new case and avoids dealing with the situation. The President decides that he isn’t going to make a statement without Liv so they just stay in a holding pattern letting the media speculate their relationship. Olivia is on the run, on a new case and ends up borrowing Quinn’s (Katie Lowes) clothes. She wore a Free People Hooded Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($168):
Huck (Guillermo Diaz) comes back with Jake’s (Scott Foley) help, but Quinn doesn’t believe that he’s really reformed and tries to push his buttons. Meanwhile, Abby is getting tired of saying nothing during the press briefings and with a little push from Cyrus (Jeff Perry) she decides to take matters into her own hands. Elizabeth is not too happy with this and tries to set her straight, but she can’t handle the President any more than Abby can. Elizabeth wore an Alexander McQueen Pussy Bow Blouse ($1045). I liked this similar Vince Camuto Ruffle Hem Tie Neck Blouse ($89) to recreate the look:
Abby, with David’s (Joshua Malina) help, that Elizabeth is the one who leaked the photos to get back at Mellie and Abby demands that they be equals in order for her to keep that secret. Fitz takes Abby’s advice and apologizes to Mellie and they prepare to do a sit down interview. That is until Olivia drops a bomb of her own.
This episode was so confusing, I don’t understand why she won’t just be with Jake, she obviously has feelings for him. I was blown away at the ending. I can’t believe Olivia admitted being Fitz’s mistress that way! What did you think?
