Welcome to the Gladiator Report for the "Baby Made a Mess" episode of Scandal. Here you'll find highlights, quotes and more from the world of Olivia Pope and company. WARNING: There are spoliers here. Enjoy!
Olivia of Troy: Olivia wants David to get her into the Super Max prison. It’s where Jake is being held, but that’s not who she wants to visit. Olivia questions former Secret Service/B613 man Tom. She wants to know who ordered him to kill the president’s son. He wants to know how she has so much power over his former boss.
Olitz Phone Sex: RING! It’s the Fitz Phone! Olivia lets the president know that she visited Tom. She brings up the suicide attempt. The president doesn’t want to talk about that. He wants to talk about hope. He wants to talk about what he’ll methodically do to her if she comes over to the White House. This has a hot-and-bothered Olivia asking what will happen next.
Could Be an Easy Chip Shot: Abby is blindsided by a reporter’s query about Charles Putney replacing Senator McDonnell. Call him Chip. Leo Bergen is running his campaign. Abby knows Chip well. He’s her ex-husband. He’s the guy who used to beat her on a regular basis. That’s not going to happen ever again.
Politics and Strange Bedfellows: Leo lets Abby know that he has dirt on his client’s opponent. Chip is going to win. So Abby tells Leo just what kind of man his client really is. This has Leo taking action to make sure Chip loses. He denies doing so to Abby as they share a drink in the White House press room. They also share something else.
Shanks A Lot: Olivia reveals how she got Tom to confess. She’s the one who had him shanked in his prison cell. She only led Tom to believe it was Rowan in order to get the truth. As short time later, Jake is brought into a secure room where Olivia and Fitz are waiting for him. The only thing the three of them have to say to each other is a simple “hi.”
