Last week’s episode of Scandal was just flat out crazy pants. Fitz has been holding Jake in secret, away from Olivia, and beating him to a pulp, trying to get some answers out of him. Mellie is no longer smelly and has taken false information given to her by Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) and then voiced concerns addressing that the White House is planning on closing some military basis to the media, without the President’s knowledge. Yeah, that’ll go over well. However, that’s when Abby tells Cyrus about all the intel she’s gathered on him and that HE’s the leak. I mean, he did tell her to do exactly that and find out how Elizabeth knew about that in the first place. It’s all his fault that this is happening – he didn’t realize that his new “friend” is a spy. Poor, Cyrus.
This week’s episode tackles that in more detail and Olivia is still unable to believe that Jake could have done something so horrible like murder Jerry and Harrison. She turns to Tom for help to find out more information when Leo Bergen (Paul Adelstein) returns with a new client, causing her team to fight back.
Here is the official ABC synopsis here:
“Baby Made a Mess” – Olivia, still unable to believe that Jake is guilty, sets her eyes on Tom for additional information, and when Leo Bergen’s newest client causes a gut wrenching reaction, her associates spring into action. Meanwhile, Huck continues to play with fire, Mellie makes a power move and Elizabeth’s shocking alliance is revealed.
Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
