The White House goes into a tailspin when Sally sets up a meeting with the NRA. Huck and Olivia come to a realization that surprises them both and Olivia Pope & Associates gets an unexpected client on Scandal.
Fitz believes he's well prepared for the Presidential debate but gets thrown a curve. Olivia gets news that forces her to make a difficult decision and someone's dirty little secret could turn deadly on Scandal.
[to Olivia] I never thought I'd get out of that hole. Never. It's not just the dirt floor and the darkness that gets you. It's the isolation. It's the silence. It breaks something in you. I just kept picturing your face. Your face saved me. I'm here because you saved me.
I have so many questions I want to ask you but I'm afraid you'll kill my friends if I do. So you know, let’s just talk about the weather or uh how I can’t form attachments to people because my mother is dead and my father is that thing that goes bump in the night or…you pick a topic.
