Scandal Season 2, Episode 18 ‘Molly, You in Danger Girl’
Fitz holds a press conference to tell the American public that Osborne was the mole and breached confidential security information.
Huckleberry Quinn arrive at Olivia’s apartment for a monthly sweep. Jake knows about the sweep, so he takes the cameras down before they arrive, and then he puts them back afterwards.
With Osborne dead, Olivia sends Molly and David home.
Cyrus talks to Mellie and Fitz about an upcoming interview. It’ll be their first interview since the assassination attempt and the birth of the baby. Fitz says ‘Cyrus, we’ve been doing this circus act for 20 years, we’ll be fine.”
Cyrus goes home. He’s been spending the past month or so in a hotel room because James doesn’t trust him anymore. Cyrus wants to come back but James says he needs time.
Susan Osborne storms into Olivia’s office. She insists that someone murdered her husband, Graydon, because in the suicide note he called her ‘Susan’. She says he never called her that, and he would call her Susie instead. She thinks someone forced him to write the note. Olivia takes the case.
The team concludes Osborne’s death is too perfect. Olivia talks to the head of Osborne’s security detail, who was with him 24/7. The guy says Osborne was a patriot with a gambling problem, and the guy at the cleaners was his bookie.
Fitz talks to Cyrus and tells him to not give up on James.
The team decides to speak with Molly again. Abby goes to Molly’s home and the place is cleaned out. Huck finds out Molly just received a $100,000 payment, so the real mole paid Molly to frame Osborne. Abby runs to get David since he is no longer safe.
Liv calls Cyrus and tells him Osborne wasn’t the mole. Cyrus is not interested in the news and he still believes it’s Osborne. He thinks Liv is trying to sabotage the White House. Meanwhile, Jake is watching Liv make the phone call and he knows that she doesn’t think Osborne was the mole.
Jake meets with Random Black Guy from last week. RBG tells Jake to take care of it. (kill her? nooo)
Olivia tells her team that the White House doesn’t believe them, so they all need to gather more proof. She tells Huck to trace the money source, and David jumps in and offers to contact his buddies at Homeland Security and have Molly placed on a no-fly list. Huck finds a storage unit connected to the account that paid Molly.
Jake calls Liv and offers to come over and cook for her. He says “I’ll cook for you in that kitchen that you never use.” She laughs and asks how does he know that, and he says ‘Just a hunch.”
On TV, Mellie and Fitz are doing their live interview. They are laughing and faking their way through it. Fitz says he met her at a bar, it was love at first sight, and here they are.
Huck heads to the storage unit and makes Quinn stay in the car. Inside the unit he finds a large empty crate. Someone comes up from behind, hits Huck repeatedly and locks him in the crate.
Liv unexpectedly shows up at Jake’s apartment, and he hide a bag with a gun and duct tape and covers the surveillance cameras on TV before she comes in. It’s date night! He also shuts off her phone when she’s not looking.
Quinn goes to the storage units to look for Huck, but there’s 10 floors and she doesn’t know where to start.
Liv and Jake get naked and have sex!
Molly is being detained at the Dulles airport, and Abby, David, and Harrison go to see her.
Cyrus comes back home and fights with James. Cy says ‘Defiance is who I am.’ and James is upset because he perjured himself and he didn’t have the option to do otherwise. Cy tells him that instead of choosing justice and bringing down the White House, instead James chose love. It seems James is more angry with himself then with Cyrus.
Molly says she didn’t finger Osborne as the mole because she wanted the money. She said if she didn’t do it she would’ve ended up dead.
Fitz and Mellie have a surprisingly calm discussion about their sham of a marriage. Fitz recalls going out to dinner with Big Jerry and a client, and that client happened to bring along Mellie. Mellie came from old money and Big Jerry wanted her to marry Fitz. Fitz said ‘It wasn’t a blind date, it was a merger.’ Mellie says every marriage is based on pretend.
David tells Abby that she must still have feelings for him. Abby says she likes sleeping with him and maaaybe she still has feelings for him. Then he asks why she can’t admit to stealing the Cytron card and ruining his life. He says he can’t forgive someone he can’t trust.
Quinn looks at the security cameras and finds that one camera was turned in a different direction so the person who attacked Huck wouldn’t be seen. Quinn finds the unit and the crate with Huck in it.
Olivia wakes up and heads into Jake’s living room. She hits a button to turn on the TV and instead she finds Jake’s secret surveillance camera wall. She finds out Jake has been watching her! She struggles to get away from him, and when he pushes her to the floor she hits her head and starts bleeding. On the cameras we see a hit man has arrived at Olivia’s apartment. Jake takes her to the hospital.
Fitz calls Cyrus and tells him that he killed Verna. Fitz says “Would she forgive me if she knew?” I assume he’s referring to Liv. Cyrus says there’s some things they have to keep to themselves.
Huck is in the fetal position and shaking. David says this is worse than when Huck was water boarded. Quinn is concerned.
Molly is dead. She was hit by a car.
Quinn shows the security tapes to the rest of the team and they see a guy in a baseball cap enter and leave the storage units empty handed. They suspect he killed Wendy and Molly, and hurt Huck. The guy in the baseball cap is Charlie, who calls Cyrus about some ‘new developments.’
At the hospital, Jake tells Liv to say that she doesn’t know him, and that she was attacked in her apartment and Jake came in and saved her. Then Fitz walks in!! He hugs her. Jake sees this, and he puts the pieces together about Liv and Fitz.
