Scandal recap: 'The Devil Came In'

Olivia has a whole new perspective on her parents, as Jake gets a new job and Fitz hits a new low
Ep. 10 | Aired Dec 12, 2013

ABOUT A BOY Fitz gets a major dressing-down from Olivia's dad ("You are a boy!") after the president gives Eli the dirty details about his sex life.

Olivia, meanwhile, has her own family drama to deal with: Her mother, the known terrorist, is on a plane headed for Hong Kong, and for freedom, and she must be stopped. Liv puts OPA on the case of digging up all the dirt they can on Maya/Marie (the latest character in the Scandal-verse -- following in the confounding footsteps of Eli/Rowan and Quinn/Lindsay -- to have two first names).

Speaking of Quinn, we learn that Huck replaced one of those teeth he yanked out of her mouth last week with a tracking device, just in case the whole double-agent thing doesn't work. And, of course, it doesn't: She uses some serious MacGyver skills (did she already go through some accelerated B613 training?) and digs the tracker out of her bloody gums. She is going to need some serious dental reconstruction after the past few days. Liv sends Huck and Jake to find her dad, therefore finding Quinn. But someone else finds Eli first: Fitz. And Quinn is busy helping Charlie do Cyrus' dirty work. Somehow, Cy thinks he'll be able to convince people that a man who was stabbed dozens of times in the back simply died of a heart attack. THIS will be his greatest trick yet.

Back to the dysfunctional world of David and Abby: We're in the U.S. attorney's office and his girlfriend, who knows no limits, is asking him for a -- you guessed it! -- huge favor that threatens national security. She wants Maya/Marie's file, and he agrees, with barely a complaint, to just email it over to her. Worst. Attorney. Ever.

Olivia is none too pleased with Huck at the moment. He tortured Quinn. Then he lost Quinn. Now he can't find her dad. But Jake begs her to cut him some slack. Because while she's begun to think Eli isn't so bad because her mom is the real villain, Jake and Huck know how evil he can be. Me? I'm just happy when Jake gets to make an intense speech, especially while wearing his best action-hero black tee.
