Booze, Betrayals & Bedfellows: “Scandal” 311 Recap
“I won’t win without you.”
Now that Sally has decided to leave the party and run on her own, Fitz needs to choose a new VP. And he suggests his old pal Governor Andrew Nichols. Immediately, the Gladiators start their digging. Trying to figure out if Nichols has any dirt on his name and whether he’ll be a good fit. After speaking with him, Olivia’s gut tells her that something’s not right about this dude. But when she tells Fitz, he’s not trying to hear it. Olivia then says that she needs to resign as his campaign manager because the rumors of their affair, would hurt his chances of winning. He tells her that she can’t leave. Not because he doesn’t want to be without her but because he’s sure he won’t win the election without her. Sigh. Boy, I tell you Fitz is all about maintaining the presidency and not so much about being with Olivia. Later, Olivia tells Jake that, kind of as an aside, that Vermont is getting further and further away. Then the two are photographed together so the country will believe they’re dating now.
