Well, Olivia Pope finally went and did it. She confirmed that she is, in fact having an affair with President Grant and it’s been madness ever since. Poor Mellie. She isn’t getting what she wanted in the least. Also, Cyrus is back! I really missed his twisted schemes and how he just inserted himself in every situation. Mellie for President!
Now that Olivia has announced to the world that she’s been sleeping with the President, are we completely done with Jake? I mean, I need some Jake in my life!
The synopsis for “Dog-Whistle Politics”:
Eager to get answers, Jake unexpectedly crosses paths with someone he thought he’d never see again. Meanwhile, Huck and Quinn recruit a familiar face to help smooth over the media storm surrounding Olivia, and Fitz quickly finds out the true cost of mercy when he discovers not everyone fully supports his actions.
