Olivia calls Jake home to ask why he assigned Quinn to stake out Rowan, but Jake did not assign Quinn. Jake tells her to not question his job and his decisions and lastly to stock her damn fridge with something other than Beer and Popcorn before stripping off to take a shower, leaving Olivia looking a little stunned.
Huck has started a habit of bringing Olivia coffee. Strange, right? He tells her it is a gesture to apologize for everything with Quinn because he does not like it when Olivia is mad at him.

Can you hear the choir of angels singing, that is because two of our FAVORITE shows are back on our screens this week and “Scandal” is one of those. Its been almost Three months since it last graced our screens so here is a little reminder of what went down on the scandalous mid-season finale.
The episode opened where the previous episode left off with Sally and Daniel Douglas arguing over his indiscretion with James with ultimately led to Sally loosing her cool and repeatedly stabbing her husband, killing him! And who is the first person the VP calls, none other than Cyrus!
Quinn is at B6-13, something Huck knows because he shoved a tracking device into her gums, OWWW! Just as Quinn makes the move to kill Daddy Pope she is interrupted, running to the bathroom, disposing of her weapon, a needle before tearing the tracking device from her gums. Oh no Quinn please don’t go to the dark side.
Rowan is intercepted while driving through the city streets and kept prisoner by the president until Maya’s plane lands, giving the two some time to sit and talk. Fitz is struggling to understand why he made him shoot the plane down when he had Olivia’s mother the entire time. Fitz tries to get to Rowan by telling her father that he is screwing his daughter, setting Daddy Pope on a rant about how spoilt Fitz is, taking the one thing that is actually his, his Daughter. Telling him that he does not love Olivia but loves that she is the way out of him being his fathers son telling Fitz not to use his daughter to make him a man when he is a merely disappointing boy.
Cyrus rushes to Sally’s home and uses Charlie to cover up Daniel Douglas’ death, everyone will think he died of a heart attack thanks to Charlie and Quinns clean up skills, Cyrus’ support and Sally’s acting. Later, Charlie and Quinn wake up in a hotel and Quinn is freaking out about how much her life has changed in a week because of B6-13.
Mellie is all but delighted to hear of Daniel Douglas death, despite their plans coming to fruition the guilt has finally gotten to Cyrus but the First Lady is not letting him wallow in his guilt. Mellie goes to visit Sally telling her she and Cyrus will take care of everything from the Funeral to the cover up with the coroner with a not so subtle hint to drop her presidential campaign.
Olivia’s gladiators are looking into her mothers past following her realization of her Mother’s past as a terrorist. Huck and Jake realize Daddy Pope is in the Pentagon and Fitz allows Olivia to see him. During her visit Olivia comes that there was not a bomb on the plane that Maya fooled him into killing hundreds of people for nothing. Mamma Pope is the EVIL one, not Rowan. Well that was a shocker! Olivia tells Fitz to have her Mother arrested the second she lands in Hong Kong! Before leaving Rowan tells Fitz B6-13 is not an individual, cut off the head of the snake and another will grow back.
Charlie wakes up to find Quinn missing from bed, she is at Pope & Associates to talk to Huck who refuses to apologize telling her that if it wasn’t for Olivia he would have killed her, she is not a gladiator anymore. Harsh words from our favorite serial killer. Quinn then returns to Charlie, is B6-13 where she belongs now that she is no longer a Gladiator? We really hope not.
James goes to David to tell him they must stop the cover up of Daniel Douglas’ murder but David no longer trusts James so he is not on board with James’ plan.

Sally’s outburst brings Leo to the realization that she killed him, and he is furious that she called the white house instead of him.

Flashing back to the day her Mother ‘died’ he avoids her question telling her the answers she is so desperate for she will never get from him but that they should return to their old ways, having sunday dinner and talking about his job at the Jeffersonian. Rowan then enters his office to find the head has been cut off the snake, the new commander of B6-13 is JAKE who has teamed with Fitz!!! OMG we died a little when this happened, Jake looked hot at this moment but he is now command.
