In this episode, Olivia takes Hollis Doyle on as her client when his daughter is “kidnapped.” She continues to struggle to move on as Fitz remains broken and Jake tries to win her affections. Mellie and Cyrus are at odds while Huck and Quinn are bonding over their mutual disregard for conventional hobbies and other people’s privacy. David is irrelevant but Shonda makes sure to give us yet another reason to be suspicious of Jake.
Quotes from the Podcast:
“You know, Mellie, I wouldn’t be surprised, especially with the fact that she doesn’t seem to have personal ambitions of her own, They’re all tied up with Fitz. I wouldn’t be surprised if she even got as hard and as manipulative as she has because she needed to. Because there was no other way for her to survive in [Fitz’s] world.” – Sabrina
“I loved [Olivia’s] anger at Maybelle because it reminded me that she gets emotionally involved with some of her clients. Like their issue becomes hers and that’s been over the top lately but in this case she was worried about Maybelle. You know, she felt like Maybelle’s life hung in her hands because she accepted the case. And it turns out the girl was lying because she wants money and has a bad relationship with her parents. She didn’t just take up Liv’s time and resources. She took up Liv’s emotional energy.” – Alta
“…but why’s she okay with stalking? I don’t get that. She hasn’t done anything serious where I can say, ‘oh, okay, Quinn has changed in this way so because of that, she fits a little more into Huck’s world. She sees his point-of-view a little bit better.’ That didn’t happen. So, I feel like she’s just doing stuff but it’s not steeped in her character.” – Alta
“There’s a lot of things that they keep telling us that they haven’t shown us. We’re just supposed to take their word for it. Like Liv talking about moving on. Fitz talking about being ruined. You know, how is he ruined? Show me. Because I haven’t seen it yet.” – Sabrina
