Olivia and Jake found out his niece was attending a college in the U.S. under false details and Olivia attempted to blackmail him, but he did not take the bait.
Huck then realized a man at the dinner was an assassin and that he was trying to kill Rashad, so Olivia and everyone saved him.
Meanwhile, Cyrus was romanced by a new man, but they quickly argued when Cyrus flipped out about him sitting in Mellie's chair in the oval.

Later, Charlie tried to dump Quinn when he said he would never be good for her, and Quinn slapped him.
Olivia and Curtis went to her place to hook up and found out that Fitz was waiting for her.
