Was Olivia Outplayed by Her Father or Cyrus?
Olivia (Kerry Washington) demands to know whether Rowan (Joe Morton) shot Frankie Vargas. He tells her no. Yes, he thought about it, but Olivia made it clear she did not need his help. He asks how Olivia she could have been so weak and allowed Cyrus to outplay her during the election. He reminds Olivia he is her father, not a predator. He is trying to help her survive and asks her to consider who would literally kill to be President – Cyrus. Olivia believes Cyrus loved Frankie but Rowan corrects her, Cyrus loves Cyrus and he is the most dangerous predator. He also makes it clear in this scene from the 'Scandal' Season 6 Episode 1, 'Survival of the Fittest,' that Olivia has a second chance at the Oval. Will she take it? Watch the premiere of "Scandal: The Final Season" THURSDAY October 5th at 9|8c on ABC.
