What exactly does Scott Foley’s character want with Olivia Pope on “Scandal”? Following the new episode of the series on Thursday night that first introduced us to him, this questioning is ringing very loud. Despite her not seeming as interested in him, he seems to be pretty undetermined in his own pursuit of her. Sadly, this is simply not a world where you can take someone at their word, and it is inevitable that you are going to have some questions that come with anyone taking an interest in you.
As for what else we are going to see during this upcoming episode, the answer is far more complicated than just simple details. Fitz and Olivia are going to continue to walk a very thin (and also dangerous) tightrope: while on one side of the coin neither party seems to have much interest in going down this road, they also cannot stay away from each other. (Being godparents to Hollis Doyle’s child probably does not help at all, and the same goes for being in similar circles.)
In addition to this, Olivia also seems ready to help a gay man prepare for a run for office, and one of the steps (tragically) needed in order to make this happen is to find a way to be his perfect beard so that he can not worry about voters distracted based on some sort of pre-existing prejudice of him.
Overall, it looks as though this clearly has the makings of a crazy episode already. and the beginnings are here for an absolutely insane story arc moving forward until the end of the season.
