SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND Olivia defends an Anthony Weiner-esque client after his sexting partner is found murdered. And you thought the Anthony Weiner story couldn't get any grosser...
When we meet Senator Meyers, a.k.a. the professor who stole Kelly from Zack in Saved by the Bell: The College Years, he admits to sexting with Desiree Oaks but swears he didn't kill her. And he's backed up by his Mellie-haired wife, played by Melora Hardin, a.k.a. Jan from The Office, who stands by her man at a press conference, where David gives his best disappointed-dad look at Abby over her questionable client. And even though Liv swears at the press conference that he made only "one mistake," the senator's many mistakes -- a string of young girls reading his seedy sexts -- are paraded onto the witness stand by the U.S. Attorney.
And there's another new woman in the mix: Congresswoman Josephine Marcus of Montana, played by Friends alum Lisa Kudrow. Her first line out of the gate is a doozy, as she tells Fitz to "tame his cobra" and focus on the issues. Fitz is distracted, however, by a headline that Pete Foster was found dead. We know Pete was running his mouth about Operation Remington, but did Fitz personally know him?
Liv & company are pretty sure they're losing the senator's case, so they start to build a case against the victim instead. Jezebel would have a field day. "Slut-shame a dead girl? All aboard," Abby chirps. And the anti-girl-power continues with Mellie, who is happy for Kudrow's congresswoman helping to break the political glass ceiling in public -- but the minute she's out of earshot, it's another story. "Give any piece of trailer trash a push-up bra and a microphone, and the stupid flyovers will eat it up like fried Twinkies." While that one-liner is incredible, it's also picked up by a live mic. Oops.
Baby Huck tries to make up for her AA intrusion, but Adult Huck is not having it. "I'm not a client, Quinn; you don't fix me," he says. She's not convinced AA will fix him either, but she really wants to understand the high of killing someone. Huck storms off into the parking garage only to encounter Jake, who pitches his Rowan takedown to his fellow B613 brother: "He owns us, just like he owns Liv." But Huck's not buying it. "No one takes down Command," he argues. "No one's ever tried," Jake counters.
The problems keep mounting for Senator Meyers, meanwhile, who has yet another sexting accuser on his hand -- he messaged this one just the previous night. His stand-by-your-man wife is losing patience and makes a run for it.
