If you read my recap of last week’s Scandal episode, you’ll understand why my Fitzlivia/Olitz feels are in overdrive. “There’s hope.” THERE IS HOPE! And I can’t stop grinning as I think about what this might mean for Liv and Fitz. Of course they still have serious obstacles to overcome, including Papa Pope and whatever he has planned. And we can’t forget that Jake is still rotting away in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. But I will always, ALWAYS hope for sunny skies and beautiful, blue waters for my Fitzlivia/Olitz ship to sail.
In tonight’s episode, “Baby Made a Mess”:
Olivia, still unable to believe that Jake is guilty, sets her eyes on Tom for additional information, and when Leo Bergen’s newest client causes a gut wrenching reaction, her associates spring into action. Meanwhile, Huck continues to play with fire, Mellie makes a power move and Elizabeth’s shocking alliance is revealed. (via ABC)
Check out this clip from tonight’s episode, which features a night time call between Liv and Fitz–it seems that I’m not the only one who’s feeling encouraged by the events of last week:
*sigh* Olivia wouldn’t be the person I loved if she didn’t continue to show concern for Jake. And I really hope that she’s able to uncover the truth when she goes to see Tom. With that said, I’m still pretty sure Rowan has a plan to undo whatever good Liv has been able to accomplish, so we shall see. And did you notice Mellie lurking in the background? Do you think she’s going to try to find out more about Jake???
