This week on Scandal, Olivia has the President, the CIA, and her own crisis management firm trying to save her, but the one person who does is her best friend. Olivia, you’re not on your own and it’s pretty awesome.
Olivia Pope speaks Arabic or Farsi or Iranian Persian. Apologies, I’m not sure which language the Iranian woman ready to take custody of Liv the prisoner, but Liv does convince her that her captors have back-up ready to strike once the deal is done. So we’re onto auction #2.
Olivia knows too much. Duh. So the Iranians didn’t get Olivia, but that doesn’t mean the allies won’t want something in return for her safety. There’s only a 30% chance of safe her safe extraction anyway..
Olivia is the godmother of Cyrus’s baby?
Huck is the Hulk. Quinn’s worried if they lose Liv Huck won’t be able to stop his murderous rage. Jake tries to explain he’s had to tame his own beast that B613 out inside him. Huck has to tame his. But that’s tough when Elizabeth North comes to ask him to take out Vice President Nichols. Luckily Huck is strong enough to tell her no, for now. But no more ‘blood’ doesn’t mean no more of anything else. Somebody’s gotta set up and save Liv before she’s ‘accidentally’ killed by the CIA.
When Pope & Associates bid on Olivia Pope as one of her mother’s aliases, and ties the Russians. Then Liv’s captors aren’t so stupid after all. Come on guys, Marie Wallace just sounds suspect. The Russians win.
Papa Pope spends his ‘retirement’ fishing on a lake in Canada? And doesn’t know his daughter has been taken.
Who’s Steven? So the Russians won the second auction and we’re all at the Olivia Pope, er, Asset exchange and Liv recognizes one of the ‘Russians.’ Ohhhh Steven!!!! You remember Steven from his sassy-yet-classy turn as a Season 1 Gladiator. Seems Abby called in a favor. This is why the White House shouldn’t be sleeping on ‘Red.’
That time Olivia realizes her friend bought her freedom, shoots and then proceeds to kick the hell out of her most brutal captor.
That moment you thought Shonda was going to let the CIA launch missiles during the exchange for Olivia and kill off her main character.
