Page 2 - "Scandal" Recap: The One Where Everything Happens, All At Once
Rowan has Dominic Bell, his ex-wife’s lover and partner in crime, kidnapped in an attempt to get info on the bomb in question. Once he determined Bell didn’t have the knowledge he was looking for, he gave Maya a call while engaging in a game of Russian Roulette. Her reaction was far from the one he was hoping for. “It must kill you to keep hoping, thinking that if I cared about him, maybe at some point I cared about you. Goodbye Dominic.” Well then. That complicated things a bit. Not too much though, since it turned out that Rowan really was perfectly capable of pulling the trigger, which he did, inside the Pope Associates office. This leads to Charlie, Huck and Quinn arguing about the proper way to dispose of a body. Tired of the bickering, Quinn takes it upon herself to get rid of the evidence, leaving both men in the dust. Hurrah for women in charge, sort of?
Olivia's parets (played by Joe Morton and Khandi Alexander) are basically running on )% human emotion at this point.
The tension then escalates into the most awkward/violent televised hookup ever (excluding anything on GoT, that’s just its own category) where Quinn and Huck go at it on the hood of a car. They’re so busy getting it on that neither of them notices Maya walking straight past on her way to the Pope Associates office. She marches straight in and orders Rowan: “Bring my baby home.”
Having ignored Olivia’s protest, Fitz and co. are now in Ohio, campaigning at a local high school and maybe (probably) putting themselves in danger. Fitz, Mellie, Olivia and Cyrus sit on a stage in a high school in Ohio, the tension high. Fitz does some not-so-sly, thougoughly gross flirting with Olivia, to which Mellie reacts with “If we’re going to die, can we do it now so I don’t have to listen to you two?”
