Olivia Pope has it pretty rough.
In order to save the life of one lover (Jake) on Scandal Season 4 Episode 6, our favorite fixer told another (Fitz) that there's still "hope" the two of them could have a future.
What will this mean for Olivia going forward? Many late-night phone calls at the very least, based on the following ABC teaser for Scandal Season 4 Episode 7:
Elsewhere on “Baby Made a Mess,” Olivia will set her sights on Tom in order to gain more intel about Jake, while Leo Bergen’s new client will prompt the Gladiators to spring into action.
Meanwhile, Huck will keep playing with fire; Mellie will make a power move; and Elizabeth’s shocking alliance will revealed. Expect to be stunned by it.
Looking further ahead, ABC has come out with the description for Scandal Season 4 Episode 8, titled "The Last Supper." It reads as follows:
Fitz and Jake continue to fight over Olivia, but Olivia needs them to focus on the real prize, taking down Command. Meanwhile, Huck longs to connect with his family and Quinn continues tracking Kubiak. Back at the White House, Cyrus' exploits finally catch up to him, but Elizabeth North's plan is much bigger than anyone ever expected.
