It seems the beginning of the episode has been clipped for some reason. Charter’s DVR capabilities suck if you are taping more than one show in a time slot. Papa Pope is back and in Olivia’s apartment. I may be an episode behind on this show as well. I seem to have too many recaps on my plate lately.
Papa Pope says he is there to ask Olivia to help him get the entire B613 situation shut down. We get a great long-winded speech from Papa with I will not transcribe because it would not do it just. There is a guy that he has drugged on the floor. Some dude that is Olivia’s new play thing. Olivia wakes him up and plays it off as they both had too much to drink.
Meanwhile, at the White House, Fitz is trying to push a bill through Congress. I think it is some gun law related to the “Ferguson episode.” The stupid new Vice President, whose ONE JOB is to do whatever Fitz tells her to is refusing to preside over the vote until she reads all 1200 pages of the bill. Why is she voting? I didn’t think she would vote in case there is a tie?
The DC mayor who is running for office has a wife with a lover. During their tryst three masked men come in and stab her to death. Olivia, Huck and Quinn for reasons unclear decide to clean up the crime scene, dump the body and try to make it look like a missing person situation.
Was the guy who was banging the now dead mayor’s wife the same person who spent the night with Olivia the night before? Between my facial recognition issues and not seeing this show for a while, I am having trouble following things. Sorry. Oh the lover is the guy running against the dead woman’s wife for major. Interesting.
Someone hacked Marcus, the lover/candidate’s email.
The new vice president is hysterical.
Olivia has PTSD from her days in captivity. She is not doing well. Olivia’s date from the previous night says he is not a heavy drinker, he never sings and there are huge chunks of the previous evening missing. Oh this is the guy she picked up at the bar when she was called Alex. She called the hottie to come back over and screw her and call her Alex.
Mellie announces her candidacy for Senate.
Marcus does the right thing and tells the police he witnessed the Mayor’s wife getting murdered. Um, how does he explain the disappearance of her body and the cover up? How does he explain Olivia’s involvement. I’m really not following this episode. Regardless, Olivia gave Marcus a speech about how it is always the right time to do the right thing. Then he tells Papa Pope she is not going to stop the B613 investigation even thought Fitz will be uncovered as the person who blew up a plane with 329 passengers.
Okay, apparently the dude Olivia is fucking while pretending to be “Alex” is B613 working for Papa Pope.
AND HE JUST KILLED JAKE! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
