Olivia’s father tells her mother who is being held in a cell by B613 that he is moving to another cell out of the country in a more difficult to find location. Her mother wants to see Olivia. Her mother has been held captive for over two decades. She begs her (ex?) husband to just let her see her daughter before he moves her. He shall not be moved. Olivia’s mother screams and begs to no avail.
The gladiators are on the hunt for whoever killed the security guard last week. Little to they know the killer….Quinn…is amongst them and being forced to spy on them by B613.
Cyrus is such a shit. He has set up his husband James to write a story on Daniel Douglas Langston, the Vice President’s husband. Cyrus knows he is on the down low and attracted to James. He does NOT mention this to James. James is thrilled and Cyrus is total douche.
Fitz is freaking out because he knows now that Olivia’s father is the head of B613. Olivia’s mom is in the cell gruesomely trying to kill herself by opening the veins on her wrist with her teeth. She is having moderate success despite going “across the street” rather than up “the alley. ” A guard finds her and gives her medical attention. Eli asks if she is well enough to transport. He says physically she should be fine, but emotionally, ” She ate her own wrists, sir. Most people would top after a couple bites but she went going until she found an artery. Whatever demons she is wrestling with? They are still there.”
Mellie tells Daniel Douglas that Cyrus and James have an open marriage just before he goes in for his interview with James.
Olivia is furious that “Fitz killed her mother.” He calls and asks her for an hour and she tells him to stop calling her and smashes her phone to bits. Jake says that want stop him. If Fitz wants to talk to her he will find a way to do it.
I am barely following the sub story about the missing laptop from the candidate played by Lisa Kudrow. I really don’t think it is that important in the long story arc. We shall see.
Eli brings news clipping with pictures of Olivia and articles about her successes to her mother as a compromise.
The president sends a copter for Olivia. She refuses to go until the secret service guy shows her pictures of herself with her father. Olivia now knows that he knows. She meets with him. They are in a Vermont hideaway. In fact, they are on a beautiful property with orchards and greenhouses and fancypants everything. Fitz had it built for Olivia. He wanted to leave it all behind and live there with Olivia and have a family and raise their kids there. It was his dream and he wanted her to see it just once before he sold it. Apparently, they are going to christen it tonight.
Quinn threatens to shoot her B613 handler. He says they will just send another and he is the best one she is going to get because he likes her, and she likes him too.
Back to Olivia’s parents in the hospital room. She wants to know why he has no personal pictures, only news clippings. What did he do to her? Eli seems angry that she was not a good enough mother to Olivia. Um pot? Kettle? You have her locked up. He is moving her tomorrow and she needs to be fully sedated.
Mellie is frantically looking for Fitz. But he is busy making the beast with two back with Mr. President. Mellie has her assistant call Olivia. She is not answering either. Fitz tells Olivia over and over that he loves her. But her father needs to be stopped. He needs answers. Olivia tells him to do what he has to do. Fitz says he is her father. Olivia says he is the head of B613 He knew what he was getting into. Olivia says, don’t sell the house. Not yet.
Mellie and Cyrus have a talk about setting up James to be seduced by Daniel Douglas. Mellie is concerned about Cyrus’s marriage. Cyrus doesn’t think James would be seduced. He’s perfectly fine about using him as bait.
OOOH! Daniel Douglas goes after James, just like Cyrus knew he would and James immediately knows what Cyrus and Mellie did to him.
WOW. The candidate played by Lisa Kudrow, calls a press conference and takes full responsibility for the stolen laptops (even though it was her assistant/daughter who did it!). She withdraws her presidential candidate. She is packing up and going back to Montana.
Mellie knows full well Fitz is fucking Olivia again, but suggests that now that Olivia is available again, they should try again with her. Fitz agrees.
James comes home to Cyrus knowing full well he set him up and plays it off. LOL James fucked the guy knowing cameras were there. Just as a fuck you to Cyrus who can’t confront him without blowing his cover.
It looks like Olivia’s mom drugged the doctor with her sedative and she is loose? Am I right about that?
Holy shit. Quinn goes to Huck and he says, ” We need to talk about who you are working for.” He has all his torture instruments laid out….
But the BIGGEST MOMENT. Olivia’s mother finds her…
