Welcome to the Gladiator Report for the "Run" episode of Scandal. Here you'll find highlights, quotes and more from the world of Olivia Pope and company. WARNING: There are spoliers here if you haven't seen the episode yet. Enjoy!
Gone Gladiator: When we last saw Olivia Pope, she was dancing to Stevie Wonder and contemplating sex on a piano. Now, pianos tend to be slippery. As Jake retreats to the bedroom, Olivia is grabbed by a masked intruder. Wine spills on the sofa. Jake immediately realizes something is wrong.
Fellow Prisoners: Jake has no idea this was all a setup. Olivia is still inside the building. Her abductors sneak her away in an ambulance. She knows that none of the men before her are in charge. She’s knocked unconscious with an injection. Olivia awakens in a barren room. Someone else is there.
Visions of Vermont: Gunshots are heard outside Olivia’s cell. Commando soldiers storm in. Jake leads them. He carries Olivia out. She pleads with him to not let go. He won’t. FLASH! Olivia awakes in a big bed on a bright, sunny day. She’s joined in the shower by the mayor of the small, Vermont town where she makes jam.
Escape Plan: While out on a walk with her dog, Abby pops by to let her know that no man is going to rescue her. She’s the only gladiator around. She must rescue herself.
Played: Once Olivia escapes through the big, red door, she realizes she’s not in a far off country. She’s on a makeshift soundstage. Olivia has been duped by her mastermind abductor. It’s someone she got to know well in her cell.
