The April 7 episode of ‘Scandal’ was a game-changer. Olivia made a shocking decision that will change her forever. Check out our recap now!
Olivia Pope made everyone’s jaws drop to the floor on the April 7 episode of Scandal. Olivia’s determination to protect her friends and herself caused our heroine to go too far. Plus, Abby crossed Olivia, and it had disastrous consequences.
Ew. That hoe Lillian was back and PREGNANT, according to Abby. Wait, just kidding. She wasn’t pregnant. But the situation was way worse than Abby and Fitz could have imagined.
Abby called Olivia about Lillian, and Liv found out that Lillian had been going to meet Andrew! You probably forgot about him, huh? Well, he was still alive and ready to talk. He was going to tell Lillian that Fitz went to war with West Angola for Olivia, and he would conveniently leave his name out it. He knew he had a stroke because someone (ahem, Huck) stabbed him in the neck. Oh my gosh…
The gang had an emergency meeting in the White House kitchen. They needed to know who had hurt Andrew. A very guilty Elizabeth denied, denied, denied. Cyrus was laughing over the drama because he had immunity! Elizabeth said they should kill Andrew. It was the only way to save themselves. That’s when Abby took command — she did NOT want that to happen.
The New Deal
Later, Olivia was trying to sleep and heard music in her living room. When she walked to the living room, no one was there. Then she woke up and knew who put Andrew in the coma — HUCK. Elizabeth gave him a call and wanted him to take care of Andrew ASAP.
Mellie went to visit Andrew. She wasn’t easy on him. She told him that he broke her heart. He apologized for hurting her. She tried to convince him that his miracle recovery was their second chance. Then things took a turn for the worse. He wanted Mellie to give him a handjob. OMG. He asked if she was disgusted with him. Well, he made sure she knew the feeling was mutual.
In the midst of all of this, Olivia was having recurring flashbacks of her kidnapping. She ended up screaming at Mellie and promised she would fix the situation. She went straight to Rowan. He basically told her she only had one option — KILL ANDREW. She swore she wouldn’t go that far, but would she?
Olivia didn’t really have a choice, though. Huck showed up to Andrew’s room and shot him up with something! But Andrew wasn’t dead. Huck brought him to the bunker, where Abby and Olivia were waiting. Olivia wanted to make a deal. She asked him how much he wanted. He asked for $10 million. After some arguing, she agreed to that and to represent him in his book deal.
All she wanted was for Andrew to recant his statement and sign an NDA. Then he changed his mind. He didn’t really want the money, he just wanted to see the look on Olivia’s face when he screwed her over. Boy, you better watch it.
Olivia Goes Too Far
Meanwhile, Fitz was ready to take the fall for everyone. He wanted Abby to make the deal with Andrew. She ran to Olivia to try and convince Fitz to change his mind. Olivia kind of loved Fitz’s plan. It was so… presidential of him. Abby, now a big dog, wasn’t ready to let everything crumble. So she took matters to her own hands and went to see Andrew.
She had Andrew shift his story and put the focus on his affair with Mellie. When Olivia realized Abby was the one who f–ked her over, she was shocked. “I don’t work for you,” Abby told Olivia. “You work for me.” OMG. Abby became a monster and revoked Liv’s pass to the White House. But Olivia wasn’t going down without a fight.
Olivia had Jake get her into the White House and went back to Andrew. He blasted her as a “cheap slut” whose life was over. He had won, he thought. That’s when Olivia snapped. She took a chair and smashed Andrew’s head in. She KILLED Andrew! And she didn’t seem to regret it at all.
Fitz rushed into the bunker after Olivia killed Andrew. After weeks of tension, she let him comfort her. Olitz lives! Abby showed up and Olivia had just a few words for her, “Never cross me again.” Quinn drove Olivia to Rowan’s house, and he welcomed her home. When she walked through the doors of the house it was like when Olivia burst through the doors of her personal hell — a.k.a her kidnapping.
Oh, and Tom and Cyrus were hooking up! Alex caught them red-handed and went straight to Cyrus’ hubby. He wanted to talk and strike a dirty deal. Watch out, Cy.
