Olivia Needs Help from Jake and Papa Pope

Olivia tries to explain she isn't like her father or Jake and if someone is in her way she believes outthinking the person instead of killing them is the best solution. Papa Pope tries to make Olivia realize she is part of their family and when brought to her breaking point will react just like they would. From Season 5, Episode 17, "Thwack" of Scandal, which airs THURSDAYS 9|8c on ABC.
