Olivia returns to Washington, to find her dad bleeding out on the floor at Pope and Associates, while Harrison, who finds Maya’s lair as well as what he believes are plans for the bomb, is greeted by none other than Adnan Saliff. Adnan confesses Ohio was nothing more than a ruse. Elsewhere, Jake and David Rossen discover that Maya Pope, clever lady that she is, orchestrated the death of a senator, in order to have Fitz conveniently at his funeral. So Jake makes the call to Cyrus, who in turn decides to keep it all on the DL – a dead Sally Langston means less competition come election time.
Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) amped up the creep factor in this episode.
