(Season 3, Episode 6)

It’s not like Olivia Pope hasn’t let Fitz get away with murder before. Sure, she was displeased with him after she discovered he killed her friend and mentor, Supreme Court Justice Verna, but whatever, that lady was old anyway. She can always see Verna at the crossroads, but in the meantime, why stop the boo-loving? But even Our Lady of the Lip Quiver has her limits.

Say, when it comes to the idea that her on-again, off-again married boyfriend took her mama out the game when she was just 12-years-old.

I presume when Huck and Jake informed Olivia of that tidbit of information, Whitney Houston’s “hell to the nawl!” lopped inside her head.

I mean, who could blame her? Not only did you never put a ring on it, Fitz, but you possibly killed her mama? Wait, let’s stop for a minute and really reflect on that. Fitz has been accused of murdering the mother of his mistress.

With every new episode of Scandal not only do you get a better understanding of why Olivia Pope owns such big-ass wine glasses, you start to wonder why she doesn’t just carry a Camelback of red in her purse.

Well aware of the reality that Rowan Pope would probably take her, Huck, and Jake out for daring to ask him if he had Fitz murder her mom, Olivia goes directly to the source to inquire. Fitz doesn’t answer in either half hour of the show, opting instead to go with the response: “Why you bringing up old shit?”
