Olivia Pope’s got a secret, but can she keep it? When Abby confronts Olivia after she conveniently gets Fitz’s impeachment hearing dismissed, she doesn’t want to reveal that she just got her dad released from prison! Click to WATCH a sneak peek of the Nov. 5 episode!
Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) put a swift end to the senate judiciary committee’s hearing regarding Fitz’s impeachment after her father (Joe Morton) was released from prison. Abby (Darby Stanchfield) starts asking questions on the Nov. 5 episode of Scandal about how Olivia pulled off that master plan, and Olivia’s conflicted over whether or not to reveal her big, bad secret.
Abby walks right up to Olivia to find out exactly how she ended Fitz’s impeachment. She heard the committee was blackmailed by things that were buried deep. There weren’t many people who had that incriminating evidence except for a few select people. Cough, Rowan.
As we all know, Olivia got Mellie to release Rowan (and basically Tom) from prison so she wouldn’t have to testify at the hearing and lie on the stand. Fitz knows nothing about what Olivia did, and he may very well lose his marbles once he finds out. After all, Rowan did have his son killed.
Olivia knows what she did was wrong, but she had to do what she had to do. Hopefully, Rowan doesn’t do anything too crazy while he’s roaming about. Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
