Olivia is back on her friend Catherine’s case. If you recall she is the one who is being accused of murdering her daughter. (She was also caught having sex with her daughter’s boyfriend). Catherine is rotting away in jail claiming that she’s done nothing wrong, while the Gladiators (which now seems to be just Olivia and Quinn with Huck working part-time hours) dig for more leads.
As they search for more clues, the team discovers that Caitlyn’s father may have had something to do the murder. He’s hired some shady ex-cop to work at his company and Quinn and Huck find surveillance photo of the daughter’s best friend Faith being assaulted by the man.
While Quinn and Olivia are working, Huck apparently doesn’t have time for OPA at. He’s desperately trying to reconnect with his wife and son; which really means he’s stalking and spying on them. Though he tries telling his wife the truth that he was trapped in B6-13, she’s not trying to hear it and she attempts to have him committed. I felt back for Huck he was really excited to see his son, but he can’t really think that his wife would allow him anywhere near the boy. (We all know that Huck isn’t the most mentally sound.)
While Huck is slacking on the job, Liv is lounging around at stakeouts with her silk suits on. Even Quinn is alarmed by her presence. Perhaps in the aftermath of Harrison’s death and Abby’s exit, Liv is trying to open up to the people she loves and trusts. In a rather vulnerable and un-Olivia Pope-like fashion she candidly tells Quinn. “My boyfriend is avoiding me.” I was as shocked and appalled as Quinn was to hear those words. (Since when did Jake become Olivia’s man? Was it because he went to Sunday dinner at her daddy’s house? Did I miss something?) Bottom-line is, Jake isn’t answering his phone and for once Ms. Pope is noticing.
