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...
Fitz is fixated on Pete Foster's murder, and when he finds out Pete's sister doesn't have enough money for a proper funeral, he makes sure the onetime naval officer is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. He tells Pete's sister that he never met her late brother, but it's clear that's not the case. Huck is also lurking at the service. Did he know Pete prior to their final encounter too or is he feeling guilty about his relapse?
James is back to complain about Cyrus not giving him enough access after seeing a gravedigger's Instagram pictures showing Fitz at a private funeral for a down-on-his-luck Navy vet. "I could have produced a segment on the president's heart, at a time when the only organ people care about is his penis," James quips. But Cyrus had no idea about the service, and he goes straight to Rowan to see why he was left in the dark about Pete's death. "Pete Foster killed Pete Foster," Rowan says. Jake, meanwhile, has planted Radio Shack's worst microphone on Rowan to try eavesdropping on the diabolical duo, but he's thwarted by singing schoolchildren. Also, he's sitting, like, 15 feet away. A) Technology is much better than that now. B) This is government intelligence's best and brightest?
While things aren't really going her way in the senator case, Olivia isn't giving up hope yet. She tells her team to buy some more time to search for the suddenly missing Mrs. Meyers and completely ignores the TV in the background calling Olivia Pope a "punch line." Then Jake storms in yelling about Pete Foster and how only 85 of 86 missions are accounted for -- Operation Remington strikes again! And lurking Huck also strikes again. Once Liv clears out of her office, Huck is in there looking at all the documents Jake left behind. He starts Beautiful Mind-ing it all together, but he doesn't entirely let us in on what he's learning.
The Mellie-Josephine storyline is shaping up to be a good one (we might have to start calling Kudrow's character "Joey," because Mellie v. Joey has a good ring to it), but the congresswoman is letting the comments slide this time. Cyrus warns Mellie that she's creating a star out of the Democrat. Fitz steps in to defend his estranged wife, and they share their first tender moment in months -- until Mellie tears her hand away from his. Is there still love there? Cy, for his part, sics his puppy aide Ethan on Montana to find out everything there is to know about Josephine.
This is barely worth mentioning, but David once again insists he's done with Abby. (Darby Stanchfield's EW Pop Culture Personality Test tells a different story, though). Let's just always assume they're a couple until one of them dies or moves away, okay?
