Scandal s03e17 Episode Script

Flesh and Blood

Did you really just treason? That is the nicest word for what you did.
B613 should never have existed! Who brainwashed you? You hated B613 as much as I did until you became command.
Enough! - Was that the president? - Shh! How long are they gonna keep us here? It's protocol.
As long as it takes.
You dismantled B613? Are you out of your mind? We discussed this.
It's what you wanted! You think he wanted an active terrorist plot six days before the election? - You should have coordinated with me.
- I made a call! We have the FBI, the CIA, Homeland Security - All plenty capable of handling this - No, no, no! Discussing these things with homeland security will make them part of the public record.
That means Maya Pope becomes part of the public record.
And once Maya Pope becomes part of the public record, so does the military plane the president whisked her out of the country on.
Not the kind of thing we want coming out six days before the election.
Which is why - we need to reconstitute B613.
I didn't make sacrifices and endanger my people to end up right back where we started! You mean the sacrifice of sleeping with me so you could hack into my phone? Crazy, right? All these years of thinking B613 is untouchable.
And all it takes to kill us is a good, quick tug on a zipper.
- Really? - Really? Just we're sure - the president is the target? Adnan Salif stole White House files from Liv's computer Schedules, maps, classified security protocols.
They know your every move.
Thanks to Salif's funding, Maya pope was able to bring in a team of terrorists to carry out the attack.
You see this, Cy? I see it.
That's the bomb maker.
We weren't able to I.
D.
him yet.
Do you know him? Do we have a choice? Afraid not.
He's our best option.
Watch me I got it watch me - There's someone here.
I got it Is that hey! - Can't be.
- It is.
- It is who? I got something that makes me want to shout What? It is who? I got something that tells me what it's all about - Mr.
President, how may I be of service? huh I got soul and I'm super bad His name is Dominic Bell.
Going back to late '70s, he ran operations for the Syrians, Lebanese, Russians Whoever bid the highest.
He was always the handler for Marie Wallace, A.
K.
A.
Maya Pope.
We find him, we find Maya.
Did you know him? Can you find him? I'm familiar with his methods.
Mr.
President, my team is tracking this group.
Is that why they're in the wind? I don't care who finds them or how.
I just want it done.
Keep me updated.
I have to be in Ohio first thing in the morning.
No, you have to stay in the White House until we shut this down.
We have the secret service, an entire security apparatus, handling multiple threats.
All useless given the players involved.
Without a bead on any of them, you're a sitting duck, Mr.
President.
I stand by my daughter's judgment on this.
- Fine.
I'll stay put.
- Thank you.
- Sir, we are six days out - Cyrus.
But so we're clear This does not make you command.
You're here to serve your country.
That's it.
My country? I'm not here for my country, Mr.
President, or for you.
I'm doing this for me.
This man ruined my life.
It's my turn to ruin his.
they all ran after the farmer's wife who cut of their tails Whenever you fall out of contact with command, you got to tune to this station.
It'll give you the location of the next meet, if there is one.
- The numbers - I know about the numbers.
I remember when Huck called you in.
7, 8, 5, 3, 5, 7 When are you gonna teach me what the numbers mean? 8, 5, 3 - You still want me to teach you that stuff? - three blind mice - Charlie, stop.
Three blind mice - Just stop worrying.
I am not going back to O.
P.
A.
No matter what happens.
I didn't try to catch Maya Pope for O.
P.
A.
I am not loyal to O.
P.
A.
, and the last place I'd ever want to be is O.
P.
A.
- So - 7, 9, 5 3, 5, 9, 8, 5 - What? - three blind mice - What is it? Three blind - Where are we going? Where's the meet? Dominic has a ring of safe houses.
They'd likely stay out of city center.
Fewer cameras to I.
D.
them.
This intel is decades old.
- What's your point? - We tracked them for weeks.
They were staying in hotels, not safe houses.
They are now.
They went underground after you lost them.
Could it be more awkward in here? Guess so.
- Quinn.
- Olivia.
Command.
Other command.
- What did we miss? - A lecture on the ancient history of spy craft by one of the Smithsonian's finest archivists.
Good luck.
- Dad.
- No, we're better off.
Dad, stop.
You want me to stay, he goes.
Jake.
I don't believe this.
Do not call me when this goes South.
Everybody just hold on.
So, are you guys, like, an item now? - This is a good thing.
- How? How is me leaving you here with him a good thing? B613 is shut down, Jake.
You don't work there anymore.
You're free.
Free? You're out.
You can walk away.
Do you remember what you said when he released you from that hole? "Nobody gets out.
" That's what you said.
"Nobody gets out.
" Nobody walks away.
Not from him.
I was wrong.
No, you're wrong now.
No, go ahead.
Say it.
"He's different now, Jake.
He's changed.
"Now he would never hurt anybody, Jake.
He's my dad, and my dad loves me.
" He will reel you in with a trail of warmth and kindness.
He will hold you in his arms and tell you that he loves you.
And once you are comfortable, once you feel safe, he will take everything that matters from you, and he will leave you with nothing.
He will break your bones and step over your body on his way out.
Do you know how I know that? Because that's what he taught me to do.
The one thing he wants more than anything is to bring my mother in to stop her.
He'll do that.
Fine.
I'm out.
I'm free.
You're on your own.
- Jake - You think he's your dad, but that's just a part he's playing A costume he puts on, a mask.
Liv, once his mask comes off Run.
MacKenzie Miller, I'm Leo Bergen.
We chatted online.
- I know who you are.
- Okay.
And you are prepared to give me what I want? If you're prepared to get me into Harvard.
I'll do my best.
Don't give me any of that "my best" crap, Bergen.
I know who you are.
I know which strings you can pull.
Harvard, and not off the wait list.
Be here after fifth period.
Leo Bergen.
Get me that eulogy, Leo.
What eulogy? Senator Hightower crafted several immigration reform bills during his eight years in the senate and worked closely with President Grant to provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.
- A heart attack.
- The beloved senator's passing has sent shock waves across - Poor bastard.
A great man.
This is an opportunity.
- Cy.
- A nationally televised funeral with you delivering the eulogy of a lifetime to your friend and hero to the hispanic community.
I would love to, but we're on lockdown.
Liv has us on lockdown.
Somebody out there wants me dead.
What? You think it's just out there.
We'll double security at the funeral.
Secret service will - scrub every inch of the place.
You're wasting your breath.
Olivia told him to stay put, so put he stays.
Just tell me what y'all decide.
Either way, I get to stand by my man.
You are six days away from seeing your legacy written out for all the world to see.
So you will win.
You will win.
And you will hold this office for another four years, because if you don't Everything that's happened will have been in vain.
When you're ready, input the code and the bomb is armed for countdown.
- I can do this from anywhere? - Yes.
You sure your team is in place? And they're people you trust? - I've given you reason for doubt? - Here you go.
Everything you need to know about the president's advanced plan and security protocols.
Let's get this done.
Long time I've waited for this moment.
Did your government think we would forget our suffering caused by E.
U.
sanctions on our country? Today, U.
S.
will learn folly of her nation building.
Today, American blood will flow, and she will feel the vengeance Yeah, yeah, yeah.
We got it.
Should you run point or should I? It doesn't matter much, I guess.
We're both thinking the same thing.
- Are we? - Total textbook play.
Guy thinks he's been covering his tracks, but little does he know we've seen his bomb.
His bomb tells us his story.
Track the parts, rare ingredients Kaboom.
We got our man.
- That could take months.
- So what's your brilliant plan? Watching.
Liv's dad told us where this guy likes to hide.
We pull surveillance footage of areas around his safe houses and then we watch.
Huh.
Needle, meet haystack.
You have any idea how much footage we'd have to go through for that? I'm fast.
Dude's got 14 hiding places in the district alone.
- Back me up here, Robin.
- Uh I don't know.
Either could work.
Never mind.
I'll do it myself.
Huck, wait.
Did you have something to say, Olivia? You really hate that man.
Dominic.
Who is he, dad? That's none of your concern.
Hi.
- Senator hightower died.
No.
- I'm saying he died.
I don't care.
The man was a soldier on - the battle lines of immigration.
And that is a loss to the immigration movement, but, Fitz A eulogy right now There is a price.
A eulogy would be powerful.
It would pick up votes.
On your head there is a price! Sally Langston is out there, campaigning.
Good for Sally.
She's taking votes, Liv.
Now, Emily's list, the NAACP.
The NAACP is not supporting Sally Langston.
But they could.
- They won't.
Have you met Sally? I'm telling you I'm losing.
I'm telling you I'm black.
Sally doesn't have the NAACP.
You know what I mean.
The election is in six days.
This is the push.
We should be on the road.
The road was the plan.
I can't just sit on my ass and hand this election to Sally.
You want permission to leave the White House to give a eulogy.
A very important eulogy, yes.
- No.
- Liv.
You could die.
You could literally die.
- My mother could kill you.
- Liv.
What am I supposed to do? If you're dead, how am I supposed to I have to get out there, Liv.
- Your father was wrong.
- What? Don't start with the psychobabble b It's the anniversary of his death, four years ago today.
Defiance county, Ohio.
I've never won a presidential election.
Rightfully been given the mandate by the people.
That doesn't mean you aren't ready to lead.
That doesn't mean you aren't good enough.
Your father was wrong.
Big Jerry was wrong.
But you can't go out there.
Not right now.
I promise you you will win this election on your own, but you have to be alive to do it.
Please.
For me.
I miss you.
I don't want you sleeping with Jake.
It makes me crazy.
You'll stay in the White House? - Liv.
- I can't be worrying about you.
I can't think if you're I'll bring the campaign to you.
I'll make it work.
But you'll stay in the White House.
Say it.
I'll stay in the White House.
- Okay.
- Okay.
I do miss you.
I have to go.
Well, I'm certainly looking forward to finishing the important work we were elected to do.
- Thank you, Michelle.
And go, blue! - Clear.
- Feed's down? - Bars and tone are up.
- Saving your good stuff for Marietta? - What? They loved me in Flint.
Flint and I go way back.
You could be better.
Remember these interviews are your personal appearances.
Be enthusiastic.
Be passionate.
Be better.
Got it.
Drop the bars.
Feed's up.
I heard you loud and clear, Emily.
Every penny counts at this point.
The Lincoln bedroom? Of course I can't promise that, but we can see.
Every one of you has made a difference.
The hours you've donated.
The doors you've knocked on.
Will it be different this time around? What are you implying, ma'am? Good morning, St.
Pete.
I can't stress enough how important every vote is.
Well, I'll be sure to bring my fishing rod next time, Joe.
No matter who you support, get out there on Tuesday and vote.
Saludos, Miami.
Muchisimas gracias.
- We're clear.
- Muchísimas gracias.
- The accent is on the first "I.
" - But better, right? Papa Pope.
That's okay, right? I call you papa Pope? No.
That's Mm.
No.
Anyway I've been looking into major financial transactions.
Anything big coming out of the D.
C.
area - in the last couple of days Call options, short sales.
Is that what you specialize in? Illegal financial transactions? Not necessarily illegal.
What are we talking about? Any luck with Adnan? Not yet, but I'll find something.
Our bomb maker's in the wind.
Tracked down every supplier we could think of.
Nothing.
But, uh, we'll get him.
It's just gonna take longer.
Found him.
He's heavy.
- Jerry.
- Yeah? Do you have a condom? I thought you wanted to wait until after midterms? I know.
I Just really feel ready.
You know? What's with the Bumblebee suit? We've got a scrimmage with choate.
Here.
You could have just stolen his toothbrush.
Yeah, but that wouldn't have been nearly as much fun.
Huh.
Unh-unh.
Harvard.
Yeah.
Yeah, yeah.
And Yale.
- Yale, - I don't have nearly as - Yale, Leo.
- Yale.
Fine.
- Nice working with you.
- Mm-hmm.
- Where's the bomb? - You must be Eli.
I asked you a question.
Exactly as Marie described you.
- Where is the bomb? - And you must be Olivia.
I haven't seen you since you were how old were you? Do you remember? Where is it, Dominic? I'm an artist.
Just because I sell you a canvas doesn't mean I know where you're planning to hang it.
Get us some answers.
And have fun while you're at it.
Huck, come outside.
No one is hurting anyone.
That's not how we do things here.
That's not who we are.
Question him, but don't hurt him.
I can do that.
That man Do I know him? My phone is ringing.
Did you hear the rumor about the first lady asking about a paternity test? - No.
- Well, you just did.
I need you to score some presidential DNA.
Isn't there a secret stash of POTUS blood in some White House vault? And before you start whining, you might note that I'm standing here with a bag full of little Jerry's man chowder.
So I'll see what I can do.
Who was that? - Leo Bergen.
- You're working with Leo Bergen? I was.
Now I'm working with you.
To prove it, I'm gonna tell you what he's up to, and you're gonna go straight to the White House to stop him.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Did you ask about a paternity test for your son? Like I said, I don't know what you're talking about.
You know who knows what I'm talking about? Leo Bergen.
Sally Langston.
The people who stand between Fitz and four more years know what I'm talking about.
Now, did you or did you not ask the White House doctor about a paternity test.
This is none of your business.
- Which one is Andrew's? - What? Jerry or Karen Which kid is his? Or is it both? I need to know so I can protect you.
Did you seriously think you were going to keep an affair with the future vice president a secret forever when he may be the father of one of your children? Like I said, this is none Do not do that! - Do not "like I said" me! It's six days until the last presidential election your husband will ever run in.
Six days until you find yourself with your nose pressed to the glass of history looking in, so do not pretend you don't know what I'm talking about.
Do not test me! I'm not in the mood! Forgive me for thinking that the White House doctor, a man who serves under my husband's command, could respect doctor/patient confidentiality.
Of course he didn't respect doctor/patient confidentiality.
It's the 21st century! This is the White House! This is the election! This is power and the future of this planet.
This is everything! You'd have to be an idiot to be this reckless.
And you are not an idiot! And you are never reckless.
I want his head in the fire, and I want to see him burn.
I want to hand him the one piece of news that will destroy him, and I want to watch his face when it happens.
I have kept this secret for 15 years.
I have lost my life for 15 years.
I have lived this lie for 15 years! And all the while, I have watched him walk away from me.
I have been destroyed while I have made him president.
It is my turn! He suffers.
He hurts.
He burns.
I'm tired of carrying the cross.
Let him pick it up now.
Big Jerry isn't something I want to be nailed to anymore.
Mellie No.
You will clean this mess up, and you will get me that paternity test.
And if you utter a word or the edge of a word to Fitz You owe me, Liv.
You owe me everything.
Jesus.
B613 is working out of our office now.
B613, with the torture and the murder and the Do you honestly think they're any different? B613 and O.
P.
A.
Because I've worked for both, and believe me they're not.
We don't torture people.
You just destroy them.
It's nice to see you guys make your own coffee now.
Abby, where are you? I want to find out what happened after I took off last night.
Never mind.
I got to go.
What did I tell you about being smart, Rosen? You didn't listen to me.
I took care of your patsy.
And then you helped dismantle an organization that was very near and dear to my heart.
You didn't listen to me.
What did I say would happen if you didn't listen to me? I'm sorry.
I just please.
Are you going to listen to me now? Yes.
I'll listen to you.
I need you to use your resources here at justice to help me locate Maya Pope.
She's in D.
C.
Access the QR4 facial recognition software.
It'll cross-reference her image with all the security cameras in the city.
If she's come up for air in the past 12 hours, we'll know it.
That software was just installed.
Orientation was the other day, but You were too busy taking down B613.
I'm sure I can figure it out.
You do that.
Thank you.
I owe you.
My buddy on Wall street.
High volume of bets made against the dollar this morning.
Some serious money, moved over hundreds of accounts.
Keep us posted.
What do you want from her? Where are we with Dominic? Nowhere.
He doesn't know anything.
Give me your gun.
Want me to do it, chief? No muss, no fuss.
- Dad.
No.
- I'm not gonna hurt him.
I'm gonna scare him.
And more importantly, I'm gonna scare your mother - and she's gonna tell us where the bomb is.
- Why? Who is he? Dominic Bell is the only man your mother ever loved.
Huck, can you run a trace? You ever play Russian roulette? No, I can't say I have.
No.
Now's your chance.
One left.
Call her.
L-look, Eli, I - Do I need to repeat myself? - I don't know her number! All right, just Just give me a second.
Hello? Hang up, and your boyfriend dies.
What do you want, Eli? Location of the bomb.
I don't know what you're talking about.
I have one bullet in the chamber.
Every minute that passes without you telling me where the bomb is, - I pull the trigger.
- Go ahead.
I need 20 more seconds.
Maya, please! Maya! - I'm not bluffing.
- Oh, I believe you.
The odds are getting worse and worse.
It must kill you, Eli.
After all this time, to keep hoping, thinking if I care about him, maybe at some point I cared about you.
Last chance.
Goodbye, Dominic.
Maya! Maya! - Everyone out.
- Dad.
It's over.
- Dad.
- Leave.
Eli.
No.
- Eli! - No.
Don't do this.
Don't! Don't do this! Let me go! - Aah! Please, Eli! Don't! Eli! No! No! No! Let me go! Dad! David? What are you doing right now? Working.
Well, I'm trapped in my office.
Jake Ballard is making me go through justice's entire - facial recognition network, and he's gonna kill me if I try to leave.
Why does he want you to do that? If I tell you, he'll kill me.
He's not gonna kill you.
What are you talking about? He would totally kill me.
No one's killing anyone.
But he said As long as you're useful, no one's gonna kill you.
So stay useful, David.
Just stay useful, and you'll be fine.
I got to go.
Did you get it? How is she? You're despicable.
Leo, I'm sending you - a sample of the president's DNA.
Nope.
The DNA is not a match.
Yes, it is.
Yes, it is.
Yeah, I was hoping, too, but there's nothing there.
Jerry is Fitz's kid.
Can't win 'em all.
Hey.
You okay? Yeah.
No.
I don't know.
I don't know why I'm calling you.
Yes, you do.
Why? Last night.
That was just me getting information.
That was me picking your pocket.
You understand who I am, what I do for a living.
I'm command, Liv.
- Was command.
You never stop being command, Liv.
That's the dirty, little secret they don't tell you when they're stealing your soul.
- I'm command.
- I'm always command.
That's That's not the point.
What's the point? The point is that I'm good at my job, and part of my job is reading people, reading situations, knowing a landscape, and I was there in that bed with you last night.
I felt that.
You felt it, too.
We were there together.
We we were together.
That wasn't you handling me.
That was us.
I don't know what you expect me to say.
Nothing, Liv.
Fine.
I don't expect you to say anything.
Tell me you felt it, too.
Tell me I'm not crazy.
Tell me You felt it, too.
My father killed my mother's lover tonight in my office.
Just Like it was nothing.
Like it was Tuesday.
He just There's a dead man lying on the floor of Olivia Pope & Associates right now.
- Liv - And the thing is, my mother could have saved him.
She loved him.
I think she loved him.
When I was a little girl, my mother used to - take me to this playground.
And while I would play on the swings, she would sit on the bench and talk to this man.
They'd laugh.
Sometimes they'd hold hands, and I didn't think anything about it.
I was maybe 5 years old.
What did I know? And today I realized that man was Dominic.
She loved him my whole life, and when the time came to save him, she let my father kill him.
I don't think she can love anyone.
I don't think there's room to love anyone in her world.
- You are not your mother.
I know that.
- You don't think I know that? I know that.
But it must be nice To feel nothing, to care about no one.
It must be easier.
- Tell me.
- I love him.
Fitz.
I love him.
And I felt something with you last night, and that feels like betrayal.
It feels like a first step.
Goodbye, Jake.
With just five days before the general election, the latest BNC poll puts vice president Sally Langston over president grant by four points.
Okay, you guys, on a serious note, have you seen my president? Florida, a lock just a week ago for President Grant, is now a toss-up after the campaign's confounding move to cancel all campaign events.
Ohio same scenario.
As voters in several key districts have yet to materialize to support President Grant - Call it up.
- Excuse me? - Marine one.
I'd rather be blown to Smithereens in Ohio than lose there.
No republican's ever made it to the White House without winning Ohio, Cy, and I'm not ready to give up just yet.
Olivia is not gonna like this.
Olivia is not here.
So do me a favor Tell the advance team to start prepping that rally in Defiance.
We are going to the buckeye state.
- Everything is fine.
- Excuse me? We were thorough.
No one will ever know.
Everything is fine.
You actually think a good cleaning can fix what happened here yesterday? You turned my office into a B613 black site.
That doesn't happen here.
Wet work doesn't happen here! I'm sorry! What? I've waited a long time A very long time to kill that man.
I'm sorry that when the opportunity finally arose that I was here in your office.
I'm sorry, but it was necessary.
- It needed to be done.
- Because mom had an affair with him? Because she cheated on you? Because our life was a lie Yours and mine A-a fiction spun by the two of them.
Dominic Bell was her partner in everything.
They were together long before we met and long after.
It was Dominic Bell who told your mother to marry me, to pretend that it was me that she loved, to gain access, to collect information.
Do you have any idea what that does to someone? He took everything from me, and I enjoyed ending his life.
I'm sorry, but I enjoyed it very much.
He didn't destroy our family.
Mom took care of that herself.
You heard her on the phone.
She didn't love him.
She doesn't love anyone! What's wrong with the construction-site dumpster? Large debris, easy to hide, regular pick-ups.
A high chance of hobo with shopping cart.
Less risky than feeding him to pigs.
It works.
I have a guy.
Maybe we should j All right.
We weigh him down and throw him in the chesapeake.
- Simple.
- So he can wash ashore at high tide three hours from now? Did I not just say "weigh him down"? Out of my way! Robin.
You two go talk or punch each other or make out.
Whatever.
I don't care.
Meanwhile, I'll be disposing of the body by myself in peace.
Give me some good news, Liv.
Dominic Bell is dead and we don't know where the bomb is.
Keep Fitz at the White House.
Tell him we don't have a choice.
He won't like it, but I'll try to keep his spirits up.
Are those Cyrus, why do I hear chopper blades? I tried to stop him, but he's a man possessed.
We haven't found the bomb.
We're boarding.
Got to go.
I have to stop this.
I have to get him off the campaign trail! - Or do you? - Fitz could end up dead.
Not if you're with him.
What? You're wrong about your mother not loving anyone.
There's one person.
It's you.
She loves you.
She threatened to kill me more than once.
Yet here you are, still alive.
Trust me on this.
Your mother - will not kill the president if it means killing you, too.
The broker gave up the address tied to Adnan's transactions.
I'm checking it out now.
I'll call back if I find anything.
Sorry, "H.
" I can't let you make that call.
What? I can't hear you.
What? Let's let them hear you all the way in Washington, Defiance! Four years ago, the voters of this county elected to the highest office in the land a man of unimpeachable character and integrity Are you drunk? - Who stood by his promise when he said - Wait.
Don't answer that.
I don't want to know.
Here.
- Just take a mint.
- He was for the people All the people.
- Not just the people with deep pockets.
- Mellie? Not just the people from the big cities.
Are you ready? - To be blown up? - Not for New York - Yes, Fitz.
- Not for San Francisco Not even for Columbus.
But for all Americans.
And President Grant, even though he was hundreds of miles away I've been a bad boy.
- In our nation's capital, - Don't be cute.
- he never forgot Defiance.
- You're putting yourself and everyone in this auditorium at risk.
The secret service went over every inch of this place with a fine-toothed comb.
I'm trying to save your life.
If we're gonna die, can we do it now so I don't have to listen to you two? Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming the President and the first lady of the United States of America! Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you so much.
Thank you.
You know I told Mellie there was no way Those rumors we talked about earlier, they're not going to come out.
That I was gonna miss out on coming to Defiance during this campaign.
It's been taken care of.
- No way.
- But if you still want the paternity test, thank you for making this visit so special.
You shouldn't have gone alone.
- I work best alone.
- It wasn't safe.
It was safer than bringing along two bickering little bitches.
What do you want, Huck? What did you do with the body? I took care of it.
- How? By taking care of it.
What do you want? I want to make sure the job was handled.
- That's not what you want.
You know it's handled.
You know I can handle it.
What do you want? Unh-unh.
Say it.
If you want it, say it! Say it! I want you! All proof that democracy works, and you have been the protectors of democracy from the beginning.
You know, we're just a few blocks away from the original home of Fort Defiance.
Commissioned by General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, it stood as the mightiest fortress of its time.
Bring my baby home.
During the war of 1812, - it stood as the sole outpost of - Dad.
- Young America's Western border.
- Your mother's here.
The bomb's still set to go off.
You haven't got much time.
For the radical idea of a constitutional Republic.
And on election day, the people of Defiance will once again have an opportunity to write a significant portion of our nation's history.
Apparently, we're all having a little too much fun here I've been told that we just set off the sprinkler system in the basement.
Now, I don't know about you all, but I'm just getting warmed up.
So - If you would all be so kind as to make - Sit.
A safe and orderly exit from the auditorium.
You should enjoy your final moments of freedom.
Let's keep this party going out on the football field.
What am I looking at? W-we got a hit on Maya Pope or, uh, Maria Wallace Whatever she's calling herself today, and you're not gonna believe what she's been up to.
Huck? Dad? Breaking news Defiance tech high school was evacuated due to a fire scare.
Looks like your plan is not gonna work out.
Sucks for you.
Did you honestly think we'd stick with our original plan after we found out you compromised poor Clare? The bomb isn't at the school, Harrison.
Our plans are working out quite nicely.
Thank you.
Continues to investigate the incident.
And furthermore You have reached Olivia Pope.
Please leave a message.
Damn it, Liv! Pick up the phone! I called 911.
They're coming.
An ambulance is coming.
I called them and they're coming.
They're coming.
Cyrus Beene.
Cyrus, this is Jake Ballard.
Senator Hightower did not die of a heart attack.
It was Maya Pope.
She was in the senator's building the morning he died.
She killed him because she wanted a funeral A place where she knew the president would have to be.
Are you saying There was never a bomb in that high school, Cyrus.
It's at Hightower's funeral.
We have to clear the church right now.
The president cannot go near The president will be staying here where it's safe.
I'll alert the FBI, secret service.
We'll have the church cleared immediately.
Ballard? Good work.
You're welcome, sir.
Smiling faces Ethan? Sometimes - Sir? Pretend to be your friend - Did Sally Langston already head out for senator Hightower's funeral? Smiling faces 20 minutes ago.
Is there a problem? Show no traces of the evil no, Ethan.
That lurks within no problem at all.
Within smiling faces smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth smiling faces smiling faces tell lies and I got proof oh, lord, yeah ooh, oh-ooh let me tell you the truth is in the eyes 'cause the eyes don't lie amen remember 'cause smiling's just a frown turned upside down my friend so hear me when I'm saying smiling faces smiling faces sometimes whoo, they don't tell the truth smiling faces smiling faces tell lies and I've got proof They ready for us, Cy? Beware of the handshake Apparently there's an issue with Hightower's widow.
Poor thing wanted to spend an extra half-hour alone, say goodbye to her husband.
Finish the eulogy? I think so.
I can't decide if it's too wordy.
Let me hear it.
It just might hold you back Start from the top.
"Mrs.
Hightower, madam vice president, Mr.
Chief justice, members of congress" Envy envy I tell you, you can't see behind smiling faces
