P&A’s investigation into the oldest Grant kids is coming up dry, but their look into B613 isn’t going unnoticed. Rowan calls Liv to warn her to stop digging. He was only able to save her life because she talked to agents/assets/whatever who are still more loyal to Rowan than Jake.
Mellie’s busy trying to help Karen pick out a dress for the interview, but Karen is more concerned with asking her mother why she’s still with Fitz. Of course, this is way deeper than a teenager could understand, but more on that later.
Mama Pope’s having a few problems with whatever scheme she and Adnan are working on. Seems like Ivan is getting cold feet, what with Dmitri having gone missing and all. Adnan’s looking for an out, too, having finally realized that Marie is actually evil. But, of course, Marie isn’t letting anyone off the hook, unless it’s on her terms.
Charlie also isn’t letting Quinn off the hook. They are still arguing about Huck’s house visit, even as they torture Dmitri for info on Ivan. It’s one thing to drill holes into a man. It’s another to do it while having the most annoying relationship argument, ever.
Meanwhile, Abby’s found Jerry’s anonymous, anti-Grant Twitter account, where he’s compared his father to Hitler, accused him of being a war criminal, etc. Fortunately, Huck was able to shut the Twitter account down, and make it so no one will notice.
He also found out that Jerry just bought a Reston campaign t-shirt. When Fitz finds it, and confronts them, Jerry literally says, “You went through my stuff? What is this, North Korea?” and Karen runs off to tattle to Mellie that Fitz went into Jerry’s room without asking. (That’s when I realized that I hate these kids. Yes, your parents are awful and you are going through a lot, but seriously?)
Of course, Karen runs right into Meldrew’s sex having and understandably freaks out. So much therapy needed after that, I’m sure. Olivia’s trying to find a way to fix it, but Mellie doesn’t want her help for obvious, pride-filled reasons.
Harrison calls Liv back to the office because Adnan is there with word on Marie’s plans. She wants immunity in exchange for info on Marie’s scheme. Liv doesn’t want to help her, but Harrison insists because of his Dark Past.
Mellie’s busy trying to talk to Karen, but she’s freaked and disgusted, and justifiably so, but I’m still shocked that Mellie allowed her to talk to her like that. She literally told her mother to “Shut up and stop lying and get out of my room.” My backside would still be sore.
Fitz questions Jake (IN A SUIT!) about Dmitri’s whereabouts, but Jake isn’t budging just so Fitz can have something to brag about during his campaign stops. Jake’s just been busy reading people left and right these past few weeks. He tells Fitz that Command has all the real power. The president is just a figurehead to make the public feel better. Different Command, same disrespect.
