Coincidentally, she had also been one of his most brilliant law students and had worked on other political campaigns. There was only one problem, she took his heart. Upon seeing her for the first time, she proceeded to tell him why he would never win the Presidency. He was in a dead marriage, that was only for appearances sake. To put it mildly, she said it looked like he never screwed his wife. He fired her…….

Fitz finds out that he didn’t really win the election fairly. He finds out from Verna that she was the one who had him shot and that her, Mellie, Cyrus were in on it.

This man is an enemy to the relationship so far he has sent his daughter away to get her away from her boyfriend. He has also had Fitzs son killed to save the Republic. Some of the other awful things he has done include imprisoning Olivia’s mother for 22 years and making Olivia think she was dead. He also gave the order that a plane be shot down and the Navy pilot to do it was Fitz.  Finally the two meet and confront each other (The You Are a Boy Speech)

vermont is for lovers

He really does love her , because he had a house built for her in Vermont. It is huge and he had hoped that it would hold all of their kids and would be a place for them to grow older together. During the second election, he had her see it before he sold it. They spent the night after making passionate love… after they were done she simply told him  Don’t sell the house… Do they still have hope? Let’s hope so

At this time, the fate of this couple remains in question. Will Olivia get back to Washington after leaving it on a jet with Jake? Can Fitz get over the death of his son and can he help his Mellie get over the trauma of her rape  combined with losing her son? Is Vermont still in the cards or is it a lost dream?  Tune in this Thursday night…. on ABC for the continuing drama of Olivia Carolyn Pope and President Fitzgerald Thomas Grant 111 on “Scandal”

  1. That was an amazing recap!!! I NEEDED to see it all from the beginning. I hate that Fitz is so spineless – it seems like all the women (I’ma count Cyrus amongst them) do dirty work for him and allow him to be pretty. He just dissolves into tantrums and pretends that he’s willing to risk it all for Olivia, but conveniently slithers through a loophole at the last minute.
