'Scandal' Season Finale: Do Fitz and Olivia Stay Together?
When the "Scandal" Season 2 finale ended, Twitter combusted with one word: WHAT?!
the loudest collective "WHAT?!!" just sounded in my living room from me, mom and sissy over the end of #scandal. 😱😱😱— tia (@bubblehearts) May 17, 2013
It seemed that there was nothing "Scandal" could do to top what had come before it: election rigging, Supreme Court justice murdering, insanely hot White House sex, a government mole, the return of a "dead" character. But with one word uttered by Olivia Pope, "Scandal" proved us wrong.
Yes, Mystery Boss Guy -- the one who met Jake on the park bench, the one who said he'd "handle" Olivia, the one who ordered Cyrus to keep the president in check -- is Olivia Pope's father. WHAT?!
Seriously, craziest paternity reveal since Darth Vader told Luke he was his father!
Back from the dead
Billy Chambers is the mole?! Even Olivia can't process it. Like, isn't he supposed to be dead, Huck? Turns out he contracted that job to his buddy Charlie.
"If you want someone killed right, you do it yourself." Oh, Huck #Scandal— Yahoo! TV (@YahooTV) May 17, 2013
Billy pleaded his way out of that one, and now the Defiance crew is up a creek without a paddle. Hollis wants to murder the guy, natch, but Olivia says he's not their problem. What they really need to do is get the Cytron card back.
As their cabal breaks up, Olivia tells Fitz it's going to be difficult to wait four more years. Uh, there won't be any waiting, he replies. He plans to go ahead with the divorce, marry Olivia, and make her the First Lady!
Is Fitz insane? He thinks he can get divorced, marry his mistress, and still win reelection? #Scandal— Yahoo! TV (@YahooTV) May 17, 2013
Fix it, Fitz says. Isn't that kind of her job?
Then he uses his (rated NC-17) superpower on her. In the White House! Again!
Cyrus finds out from James some disturbing news: Sally Langston is planning to run on her own for president! She's not cool with the commandments' being broken and thinks the party needs an alternative. A red-faced Cy goes apoplectic and starts screaming about how she had two jobs: to be loyal and to not die.
The gladiators are trying to track down the Cytron card, and Olivia hits on the idea to scout out Fitz's opponent in the last election, Gov. Reston. Quinn shows off just how much she's learned and taps into security cameras in front of his house. But instead of impressing Huck, this disturbs him. He's worried about Quinn and he's worried about Liv.
Meanwhile, Jake is meeting with Mystery Boss Guy, who asks him to bring Olivia in. Jake refuses. Well, if he can't do it, then someone else will.
Later, MBG meets with Cy to ask why the chief of staff hasn't shown Fitz the video of Olivia and Jake getting it on. They're his friends, Cy argues. "Do your part," MBG says. He'll handle Olivia.
Mystery Boss Guy is "handling" Olivia Pope? That does not sound good. #Scandal— Yahoo! TV (@YahooTV) May 17, 2013
After their exchange, Cy gets a call from Olivia, who warns him about Reston. Oh no, apparently Reston is meeting with Fitz at that very moment! It's all too much for Cy to handle, and he collapses on the ground.
