Noah!

Olivia!
It's been a while.

Too long.

I saw that sit-down you did
on Dominique Strauss Khan.

- Nicely done. - Thank you.
- What's going on?

We're gonna have to push the interview.

- Olivia.
- We just need an extra hour or so.

It's live.

I'm not at liberty to discuss it,

but the President
is in an important meeting,

and it's running long.



W-we'll start
with the rest of the family.

Oh, I'd like to,

but the deal was for a sit-down
with the whole family.

In a live prime-time interview

that we've been promoting for weeks.

I'm asking you to work
with me, to be flexible,

to give me at least
an extra half-hour.

Okay, while I what...

Read the phone book on national television?

- Olivia, you know how this works.
- Noah, listen...

We are going live in 64 minutes,

either with the members
of the first family or with me

wildly speculating on why the
Grants are suddenly unavailable

for an interview
they committed to weeks ago.



It's up to you.

Where are they?

They're in the bedroom.

Jerry, Karen.

We need to talk.

Be nice. - What do you
mean, "be nice"? I'm nice.

Be nice to them.

Ask Jerry about lacrosse. He
scored a goal that won the game.

I know that. I read the e-mails.
And I am nice to them.

Karen was the lead in the play. Make
sure to say something about that.

I know how to do this.
They're my kids, too.

Just be nice.

Mellie.

It's gonna be okay.

- Is it?
- Yes.

We are happy.
We are together.

We are a family.
Everything's fine, okay?

Happy, together, family. Yes.

Okay.
We can do this.

We can do this.

- What was the name of the play?
- What?

Karen's play...
What was it again?

- "Our town."
- "Our town." Okay.

You ready?

Let's do this.

Honey, I didn't know
if you were still a vegan.

I think it's something made with nuts?

I'm fine with salad.

Well, as long as you're eating.

So, I heard your big goal

means big green looks good
for regionals, Jerry.

That's fantastic.

Thanks.

And, Karen, I bet
you were terrific in "Our town."

Dad.

I want to tell you that your mother and I

really appreciate you guys

coming down here to help out
with the campaign.

We know it's been tough
these past few months.

And it means a hell of a lot to us,

so don't worry about
this interview, all right?

You'll be prepped.
It's gonna be easy.

And at the end of the day,

let's all just remember
that we love each other.

Yeah.

Fine.

The department of education
budget from the past decade.

Picked it up on my way from the office.

You wouldn't believe

how much Ohio allocates
for chicken nuggets.

- You can scratch healthcare off the list.
- Nothing?

Our government spends $20 mil
a year on penis pumps.

Any of that going to B613?
I don't think so.

Any luck finding Adnan?

None of the hotels I showed
her picture to recognized her.

I left her another
voicemail, but knowing her,

she's probably in the wind.

What's going on here?

Liv thinks if we separate B613
from their money supply,

we can starve them to death.

A reasonable plan. Except
we can't find the money.

We've been through the budget
of almost every department...

Defense, Homeland Security...

Agriculture, Healthcare.

Why don't we call it a night?

First thing tomorrow,
we work our contacts...

Justice department, congressional
budget office, C.I.A.

See if there are any line items
they're not supposed to touch.

Any luck, we can narrow our search.

We shouldn't be doing this.
It's suicide.

What are you talking about?

Taking down B613.

You don't take down B613.

You run... you hide.
Or you die.

And B613 survives.

- It always survives.
- Not anymore.

- What about Quinn?
- What about her?

We have to get her out first.

I tried that, Huck.

She pulled a gun on me.

But we have to try.
Huck.

You miss her.
I miss her, too.

But she made her choice.

She walked away.

- Tell me again.
- I already told you.

Just want to make sure I got it.

What's there to get?
I come home. Huck was there.

He pushed me against a wall,
we argued, and he left.

And that's it?

That's it.

What'd you argue about?

What?

You said you argued.

We... I don't know,

mostly about how I didn't appreciate

him slamming my face into a wall.

- Why was he there?
- What?

- Why was Huck waiting for you in your apartment?
- I don't know.

- He had to want something.
- I don't know.

- I'm not his keeper.
- He didn't say?

Look, I don't care why he came.

What does it matter, anyway?

I am done with Pope & associates.

I am done with Huck.

You want me to kill him?

'Cause I'd do that for you, Robin.

I'd kill Huck in a second
if you wanted me to.

No. Don't.
But thank you.

That's sweet.

Come on.

We have a job to do.
Let's get to work.

Hi, Dmitri.

Dmitri Belenko...
Former Ukrainian organized crime,

now believed to be
an advance man for Ivan Yushkin.

Ivan was behind
the 2011 Kiev market bombing

that killed three British tourists.

I remember.

SZRU had Dmitri in Bucharest in late 2012,

but he went off the grid
and apparently inactive

until he showed up outside
Baltimore three days ago.

- Baltimore?
- We had eyes on him, Mr. President.

He's gone?

He is gone, sir...
Disappeared.

See if he was picked up by another agency.

- We've asked.
- Ask again.

Dismissed.

Cyrus.

Sir.

Good to have you back.

It was a beautiful funeral, Cy.

I'm going to need more prep time
with Jerry and Karen.

Why? Just want to make
sure that they're ready,

that everyone's on the same page
with their answers.

Fitz, when...

Don't worry. We'll be lucky if
he gets two words out of 'em.

I don't want Noah Baker to trip them up.

They can handle it.

I wouldn't have agreed
to the interview otherwise.

There's a lot at stake here.

Fine.
Take whatever time you need.

It's just that this might be

the most important interview
of the campaign.

I said fine.

Can we not discuss my kids right now?

Bullfrog, Utah.

I go there tomorrow.

Also Possum Grape, Arkansas.

Apparently, the goofier
the name of the town,

the more the campaign needs me there.

- Andrew.
- What?

My children are here.

I don't see them.

You like it there?

Or there?

Mellie?

Both.

I like both.

The interview
will last for 48 minutes,

with two commercial breaks
of three minutes each.

So, how many people are
actually gonna watch this thing?

We can't know for sure,

but previous interviews with your parents

have had audiences
of up to 15 million viewers.

Adding the two of you should
give that total a solid bump.

So maybe 17?

Maybe.

And when you say it's live,
do you mean live live,

- or is there gonna be a tape delay?
- Jerry.

Sorry.

I-I just want to know,
you know?

If I say something stupid,
can I take it back?

It's going to be live live, so no.

But I'm sure you'll both do fine.

Just be yourselves.

Will do.

Change of plans... I need
you to look into the kids.

Do we think they're funding B613?

They're about to go on national television.

We need to get to know them a
little better before America does.

Andrew.

Olivia. Busy day.

Always.

There's no rest in a Presidential campaign.

Andrew.

Yes.

Stay away from her.
What?

She's the first lady of the United States,

and you are trying to be vice President.

Stay away from her.

What's your point?
Andrew.

Do you have a point?

The last thing this campaign
needs is another sex scandal.

Stay away from her.

Glass houses, Olivia.

Jerry works
on the school paper,

plays lacrosse 'cause
that's what rich people do.

Karen does theater, gets straight A's.

What are we looking for here...

Drugs, cheating on their SAT's?

- A preggo townie?
- I'm not sure.

All I know is that when I talked
to them this morning,

something was off.

I can't say what it was exactly,

but it was definitely something.

So you want us to stay on this.

Even though we're kind of
in the middle of a war

with a top-secret
spy organization?

- That can wait.
- Good.

But only until tomorrow.

Tomorrow, we pick our swords up again,

- and we're back in the game.
- Copy that.

Olivia Pope.

Stop digging.

I don't know what you're talking about.

You're looking into B613,

and you may think that
your inquiries look harmless

or that they don't draw
attention, but they do.

B613 has trip wires

in every computer system
in every building in this town.

Two days ago, your people
were traipsing through

the DOD's redacted budgets.

This morning, you were poking around

the files of
the congressional budget office.

If I hadn't called in some favors

with some old associates of mine,

men more loyal to me
than they are to Jake Ballard,

well, we both know what B613
does to its enemies.

Don't play this game anymore, Olivia.

Then tell me.
How do they do it?

How do they get their money?
How are they funded?

You told me I'm supposed to
drag everyone into the light.

That means B613, too, dad.

Help me.

Goodbye, Olivia.

For this interview, we need
to go for "sweet, wholesome."

How about the blue?

You want to wear the blue?

Why are you still with him

after everything he's done to you, to us?

Your father and I are fine.

Our marriage is stronger than ever.

- He's a cheater.
- Karen.

Nobody is perfect.

Nobody.

Headed out tomorrow morning.

You know the drill.

No news, stick to the
speech, rally the base,

and keep the spotlight pointed
directly at you and your agenda.

Wish I could go with you.

To rural Arkansas?

Are teenagers really that rough?

They're barely speaking a word to me.

Just means they're independent.
I envy you.

Yeah? You want to trade
for a while?

Guess the grass is always greener.

- Hello, Olivia.
- Andrew.

I'll let you two talk.

When you get back, I want to
see you on the tennis court.

You seem to love getting
your ass kicked, sir.

Oh, trash talk. Sad.

Good guy.

Yeah.

I want to go over the interview
questions one more time.

Don't get cold feet on me, Ivan.

If you do, I promise
you're gonna regret it.

Dmitri never showed up for the
meet, and Ivan is spooked.

He thinks someone's onto us.

Maybe it's time we put
the brakes on all this.

I mean, it's gotten a little
out of hand, don't you think?

You're scared.

No, I just don't like it
when people go missing.

Oh, honey.

You're looking for a way out of
this... but there isn't one.

We're moving ahead...
You and me.

At least until I decide otherwise.

So, Huck was already inside
when you got home?

Charlie!
I just want to be clear.

Huck was already inside?

Yes.

- And?
- And what?

What happened?

I told you what happened.

I come home, Huck's already
inside waiting for me,

then we argue, and he slams me
into a wall, and he leaves.

So you argue, and then
he slams you into the wall.

Yeah. I don't know why
this is such a big deal.

Before, you said he
slammed you into a wall,

- then you argued.
- Same difference.

No. Very different.

Look, it it's not
even worth discussing.

I don't even know why I bothered

to tell you about it in the first place.

You bothered because you know

you don't ever keep things from me, right?

Right. Yeah.

I'm sorry.
I just...

He was there, and he was yelling,

and he slammed me into a wall,
and it all happened so fast.

I was mixed up, Charlie.

Maybe you should move in with me.

Huck's been breaking in.
You're not safe.

No, I'm fine.
It's fine, really.

I'll change the locks, I have a gun,

and I made it pretty clear to him this time

that he'd better not mess with me.

After he slammed you
into the wall.

Right.

Or before?

You're not sure.

Can I... I-is it okay
if I drill for a bit?

Go ahead.

You ready to tell us where Ivan is?

Go to hell.

You first.

I want answers, you son of a bitch!

Tell command to return my calls.

Abby. What do you need?

What is it?

It's Jerry, Liv.

Huck found out he's been running

an anonymous
anti-Grant Twitter account.

"Dozens die in east Sudan riot."

"Fuehrer Fitz's response...
Working on his serve."

"♪Fascist,
♪warcriminal, ♪..."

You get the idea.

The latest post is from this morning.

What kind of damage are we
looking at? How many followers?

A couple thousand...
peanuts.

Huck tied the account to a dummy IP address

before taking it offline.

None of them will ever know it was him.

- Thank God.
- Oh, there's something else.

Seems he did a little
online shopping last week.

You want to explain this?

Seriously? You're searching
through my stuff?

What is this, North Korea?!

What, are you gonna tweet about it?

I didn't say anything that isn't true,

and you can't stop me from posting.

See, that's where you're wrong.
Your account's been shut down.

This little stunt of yours is over.

You can't do that!

Grow up, Jerry.

Does mom know you barged into
Jerry's room without asking?

I hope you know there's no way in hell

you're wearing this tonight.

Karen!

Mellie.

We are not talking about this.

Mellie.
We are not talking about this.

You have an interview that's
going out to the entire world,

- and...
- I am aware of the schedule.

Everything will be fine.

Do you think
Karen's... fine?

I think Karen is my daughter,
and I will take care of it.

Harrison.

Liv, you need to come to the office now.

I received a phone
call from a colleague

who asked if I transported Marie Wallace

from Mongolia to the States.

I'm not above getting

a little dirt under my nails
to make a buck,

but this has gone too far.

My mother is wanted
by every intelligence agency

in the country.

Why not go to the FBI or the CIA?

So I can swap what I know for
a life sentence in Guantanamo?

That's if I make it there before
she has someone slit my throat.

You have the means and the
access to ensure my safety.

This firm is not a haven for criminals

who want to flip on their bosses

because they suddenly realize
they're in over their heads.

Liv. Can I have a minute?

I wasn't as innocent
back then as you think.

And, yeah, she skipped town on me, but I...

I owe her.

Details, contacts, everything
you two were planning,

and who you were planning it with.

You and your mother have a lot in common.

You both want what you want
on your own terms.

But I'm not saying another word
until I have what I want...

Immunity.

Find David and see what he can do.

I didn't say you could come in here.

Karen, I don't know what you think you saw,

but believe me, you are very much mistaken.

The only mistake, mom, was that I saw you.

- Karen...
- What, mom?!

You were on your knees with Uncle Andrew.

I saw you.
It was disgusting.

And you know
what the worst part about it is?

This whole time, I've been blaming dad

when you were the liar,
you were the cheater,

you were the one doing everything.

- You are being dramatic.
- Shut up!

Karen!

Shut up and stop lying
and get out of my room!

I'm not staying here.
I'm going back to school.

- You can't.
- I said get out of my room!

Give him to me.

Who?

Dmitri Belenko.

I don't know who that is.

You know exactly who it is.

We had eyes on him.

You took him.
We know you took him.

And now you want your ball back.

This is not a game, Ballard.

No, it's not.

But let's suppose I did know
who this Dmitri was...

A terrorist maybe working for Ivan Yushkin

who popped up in Baltimore
three days ago...

Just making this up, obviously.

But if someone like that
did exist and I had him,

why on earth would I give him to you?

So you can puff out your chest

and announce his detention at
a swing-state pancake breakfast?

I am the commander in chief.

And I am command,

which means you don't
tell me to do anything,

because I'm not your bitch.

You are the President.

Your job is to shake hands,

hold babies, pose with prime ministers,

and sit down to interviews
with your family.

You comfort people, and you look
pretty, and you talk tough.

You don't do anything.

I decide if there is a war.

I decide if a world leader dies.

I decide what to do
with the Dmitris and the Ivans.

I decide if America sleeps at night.

I decide if America endures.

This is not a game,
Mr. President,

and you're not getting your ball back.

You forget that I...

Lauren, who's in there?

Jake Ballard, sir.

Cyrus.

Cyrus, do you need something?

Cyrus!

Jake.

Jake, let him go.

Jake!

I'm gonna let you go now, okay?
You calm down, all right?

Cyrus, you okay?

Cyrus! Cyrus!

He killed my husband!

- You let me go!
- Cyrus!

He killed James!

He killed James!

- Let me go!
- Stop!

Let me go!

- Let me go!
- No! Back off!

I said back off!

Cyrus!

I should go.

Jake.

I'm sorry for your loss.

It could be argued
that James did this to himself.

He's a grown-up...

Was a grown-up.

It could be argued that he knew

what he was getting himself into.

But the man I married,
the man I had a child with,

he was foolish enough

to think he lived in a world where...

where the vice President
of the United States

shouldn't be able to murder
her husband in cold blood

and get away with it.

Silly.

He believed in fairy tales.

But if James had lived,

if he had gone public,

he would have brought down Sally
and our administration

and the entire executive branch
of the U.S. government,

so I suppose...

Jake was just doing his job...

Serving at the pleasure of the President,

just like the rest of us.

Morris.

Ms. Pope.
No cupcakes?

Couldn't get to the bakery today, sorry.

Hello.

Olivia.

How are you?

What do you want?

I want Adnan back.

So you can kill her?

I know you think you're
on the right side of this,

but you're not...
Believe me, you're not.

What I know is that you are a terrorist,

a traitor to your own country.

Maybe.

But I'd rather be a traitor
than what you are, Livvie.

Cleaning up those people's messes...

Fixing up their lives.

You think you're family...

But you're nothing but the help.

And you don't even know it.

You don't know what you're talking about.

Oh, I do. I do.

And if that's all you want out
of your life, baby

I guess it's none of my business.

So I'm gonna stay out of it...

Just as long as you stay out of mine.

Rosen's talking to his people at justice.

He'll come through with a deal.

Ratting out your partner
to save your own hide...

How long does that horrible
taste remain in your mouth?

If it weren't for Liv,
I would've done eight years...

- Federal.
- When Clearwater imploded, I ran.

I was scared.

I expected you to do the same,
not pile all of your sins...

You expected me to lay down,

- roll over, and play dead!
- I never would have turned on you.

I did what I had to do!

We could have started over...
Together.

Together? Us?

Maybe this is it...
This immunity deal.

Maybe it's our chance to start over.

Stop.

We could be good for each other.

Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace?

All this deal means is we're even.

Are we... even?

What?

You're on camera in about an hour,

so we're gonna need
to switch you to coffee.

It's not happening.

The interview...
You need to cancel it.

I can't just cancel it.

Then what are we paying you for?

For another four years in this house,

which is not going to happen

if you don't put the scotch down right now

and do something about your children,

because believe me, it's going
to be much worse for them

if they don't do this interview.

The media attention, the press speculation,

Facebook, Twitter...
They won't get a moment's peace,

and you know it!

It's not four years ago.

They're not children anymore,

so the best thing for everyone
would be if you...

Would be for you to cancel the interview!

I will see if I can push it.

We're gonna have to push the interview.

We're going live in 64 minutes.

Where are they?

We need to talk.

I'm not going on TV and lying.

Why don't we just sit down
and talk this thing out?

Okay, you talk, I'll listen.

Okay, why am I the only one dressed here?

Something's come up.

I'm trying to push the interview.

What? What's come up?

Is this more of your political crap?

I thought we put that to bed.

We're not doing it, dad.

You don't pull a stunt like this

just before we're supposed
to go on the air.

Put on your clothes now.

- Fitz.
- No! Put on your clothes.

You don't want to do it for me,

at least do it
out of respect for your mother.

Respect for our mother?
Why?

She doesn't have any respect for you.

What are you talking about?

She's doing it with Uncle Andrew, dad!

I saw her!

Fitz.

Fitz!

I need you to stop right now.

I need you to stop and think
about what you're about to do.

Were you gonna tell me?

After the interview, Fitz.
Let's just talk.

- I'm done talking.
- Oh, now, wait...

Mr. President.
Mr. President.

- Did you get anything from Dmitri?
- Lots.

Actually, it was agent
Perkins who got him to talk.

I'm telling you, boss, the kid's
a natural with a drill...

- Where's Ivan?
- It's all in there.

Time of the meeting.
Name of the hotel.

Nice work.

Agent Perkins, a word.

Why did you
call me here?

Command sent me
to find out what you want.

I need to talk directly to Jake.

He won't talk to you.

And beating up B613 agents isn't
going to make him talk to you,

so I'm here to find out what you want.

What do you want, Huck?

I want him to let you go, to set you free.

I want you out of B613.

I want you safe. Oh, so now
you want to rescue me?

Last week, you wanted to kill me.

What's changed?

What's... changed?

You know what's changed.

No.
See, I'm confused, Huck.

How does this go?
What are the rules?

When you licked my face, when
you put your tongue on my cheek,

apparently that was just what
you needed to get in the mood

to rip out my molars, right?

But your tongue in my mouth,
that's different?

You put your tongue in my mouth,
and now I deserve to live?

That's a thing?
That's how it goes?

Yeah.

Yeah.

That's how it goes.

Not an awful way to kill some time.

Not at all.

♪ We got a thing going on

I never would have turned on you.

♪ We both know that it's wrong

♪ but it's much too strong

♪ To let it go now

♪ We meet every day at the same café ♪

But now let's call it even.

♪ 6:30 and no one knows
she'll be there ♪

♪ holding hands...

- What are you doing here?
- Oh, I figured you'd be free.

This fake job of yours can't
keep you too busy, now, can it?

Actually, I am busy.

I'm preparing a lecture on the great auk.

Thanks for dropping by, Jake.

Do I need to call security?

What you need to do
is stay out of my business.

Your business?

Yes. You're not command anymore.
That's my title.

And when I find out that you've
been in touch with my agents,

that you met with some of my
people at the DOD And CBO,

"A," it makes me curious about you're up to

and, "B," makes me wonder
if the terms of your retirement

need to be revisited.

Do they need to be revisited?

It's hard, isn't it,

being the man who makes the decisions,

having that burden, bearing that cross?

Most people have family and...
And loved ones to talk to.

But people like us,
we only have each other.

Well, that's the reason you're here, yes?

I-I mean,
the real reason...

To look in my eyes and remind yourself

that others have walked
this path before you.

Well, not that you ever admit it.

God forbid we should show weakness.

Better to say that you're here on business,

to threaten me and flex your muscles.

But all that's just pretense, isn't it?

A way to feel less alone in the world,

to see that I, too,
have stood in your shoes?

Well, guess what.

Look.

You're alone!

The path that you walk is not my path.

The shoes that you stand
in are not my shoes.

We are not equals, nor will we ever be.

You are a-lone.

Or is there something else
you wanted to ask me?

No.

But thank you...

For reminding me
that when I decide to kill you,

I need to do it all by myself.

I'm going in there.
That's a mistake.

This is not just some
sleazy affair, Mellie and I.

You need to leave. Your
campaign trip... it starts now.

There's a plane waiting for you.
I'll leak to the press

you got that shiner playing
tennis with the President.

When a reporter asks, run with it.

Olivia.
Go!

We should get
some ice for your hand.

Let me look at it.

Fitz.

How long?

What?

How long have you been screwing Andrew?

How long have I...

Are you serious?
Does it matter?

It matters.

So, you can cheat and I can't.
Is that it?

Well, that is one hell
of a double standard.

- It matters!
- Seriously?

Fitz, let's not pretend
that you are the victim.

You turned me away.

What?
After Jerry was born,

you turned me away.

- You stopped wanting me.
- Fitz.

You wouldn't let me touch you.

And when I asked you about it,
what did you say?

We don't need to go into that.
What did you say, Mellie?

What did you say?

That having a baby changed me,

that I wasn't a sexual person anymore.
That having a baby changed you,

that you weren't a sexual person anymore.

You made it clear that that part
of our marriage was dead,

that you were dead inside.

I said that because...

There were reasons.
You turned me away.

Were you screwing Andrew
when you told me that?

That's not...

But you're screwing him now.

Are you screwing him now?

Are you?!

Yes.

So you're not dead inside.
So you are a sexual person.

Because you're not turning Andrew away.

- I don't see what that has to do with...
- You don't get it.

You really don't get it?

If you are saying that I am to blame

for your affair with Olivia...

I am saying you ruined our marriage.

What?!

You!
You ruined our marriage.

You shut me down.
You locked the door.

You killed us.

I would never have cheated.

I would never have gone looking elsewhere,

but I'd spent 10 years with a wife

who wouldn't let me touch her.

10 years.

And I never blamed you.

It wasn't your fault you didn't want me.

"Poor Mellie.
My poor wife's dried up.

She can't control her
body or her libido."

But it turns out that was a lie.

It wasn't that you didn't want sex,

it was that you didn't want me

because you're all hot
and bothered for Andrew.

And I have spent all this
time feeling guilty,

feeling like a monster,
feeling like I broke us!

And it was you.
You did this.

You ruined our marriage.

You killed us!

You killed us, Mellie.

Don't you see that?

Don't you see what you did?

We never had a chance.

Those kids never had a chance

at growing up with two loving,
happy parents.

Don't you dare put this on me.

I have given my life for you.

If you knew what I have done
to get you where you are...

What have you done, Mellie?

All you've done is deny me love
and scheme to have power.

You tell me one thing you have done,

one thing that you have sacrificed,

one thing that you have lost because of me.

Because I lost my marriage.
I lost my wife.

What have you lost?
What have you lost?

I'm sorry to interrupt, but we
need to focus on the problem...

What have you lost, Mellie?

We have to sit down
with a reporter in less than...

- What have you lost?!
- Fitz.

I'm talking to my wife!

Liv, I'm sorry.

Where are you going?

- Home.
- Home?

- Home, Cyrus, I said home.
- You can't.

- No, no, no, you can't!
- Why?

Because if you go home, I can't...

I don't mean to play
the "dead husband" card, Liv,

but I can't see through the fog right now.

And if I can't see through
the fog, I can't do my job.

The sky will fall.

And I won't be able to
stop it, but you can.

Like it or not, Olivia Pope
can... play through the pain.

Tell me we're not the help, Cyrus,

that I am not some maid
with a mop in my hand

cleaning up messes
whenever they ring the bell.

If you can do that for
me... I'd be lying.

You know the job, Olivia.
You know what we do.

Don't you resent it?

Of course I resent it.

But somewhere in this head of mine,

behind the fog, behind the anger,

is my faint recollection
that what we do is important,

that my husband died for a
reason, that his death matters.

So, instead of going home
and crying about it

like I'm going to do, I need
you to get back in there,

back in that little white building

with all those miserable
people inside of it...

And do the job for both of us.

Because it's not just that family

you're putting back together.

It's the whole damn country.

Olivia.

I am so sorry.
I let my anger spill over.

- I should have never...
- I'm working.

I am at work.

This is my job.

- I didn't mean what I said.
- No.

Listen to me.

All of this... your regret,
your apologies...

You need to direct it
towards your children,

- towards your wife.
- Livvie.

We are 20 minutes away
from a live interview

with a very important journalist

that will be seen by tens
of millions of people

around the world.

So right now,

you are going to fix your family
because it is not my place.

I am at work!

This is my job.

If this interview turns into a disaster,

then I will have failed at my job,

and I cannot afford to fail
at my job right now

because it is all I have left!

Go.

Can we come in?

Are you here to yell at us?

No.

Sau mein.

The Chinese make it on new year's.

If the noodles stay unbroken,
you live a long life.

- What are you doing here?
- What do you mean, what am I doing here?

I live here. I moved in
just a couple hours ago.

Called my landlord, broke my lease.

The bastard kept my security deposit.

But, well, if that's
the cost of keeping you safe...

Safe?

From Huck.

In case he decides to stop by again.

You get to keep the apartment,
and I get to keep my eye on you.

How great is that?

To unbroken noodles.

To unbroken noodles.

Just so you know, this is the
last time I'm granting immunity

to a known enemy of the state.

Thank you.

Harrison.

Harrison?

Harrison?

Harrison!

Harrison!

He's breathing.

Oh, my God, what happened?

Where's Adnan?

You're late.

I'm not the kind of man
you can keep waiting, Ms. Salif.

Believe me, Ivan.
This is worth the wait.

We'll see. Fresh from
Olivia Pope's computer.

The President's campaign schedule,

complete with a make-up
of his security detail,

secret service shift changes, exit routes,

contingency plans,

and the contingencies to the contingencies.

In a word, everything.

We've got every exit blocked,

snipers have eyes from the office building

across the street.

We're set to kill or capture
on your orders, sir.

Let them go.

Let's see how this plays out.

The interest in this interview
is just epic, Tanner.

Ella. As much as the Grant family
has been scrutinized in the press,

still very little is known
about the children.

And with Sally Langston's massive lead

amongst the family-values
voter,

this interview could have serious impact

on who takes the white house in November.

Aww.
And fair or not,

can... can... the Grant family are
seen by many as an out-of-touch...

We're a minute to air.

- Liv?
- They'll be here.

And you know this because...?

They'll be here.

You know I have to go on
whether they're here or not.

- Noah.
- Mr. President.

Welcome back to the White House.
Wonderful to be here.

Okay, let's see, um...

Jerry, how about we put you
next to your dad?

And, and, Karen, how about
you sit next to your mom?

30 seconds.

All right.
We all ready?

Mellie?
You ready?

Let's do this.

- 20 seconds.
- Hold on.

Oh, thank you.

Hey.
Thank you, Olivia.

This is Olivia.

The money source of B613,

you've been looking in the wrong place.

What? It's not funded
by one department.

It's funded by all of them.

10 seconds.

What do you want?

Nothing.

Then why are you helping me?

We're family, Olivia...

Despite everything.

And... families,

well, they, um...

They stick together.

And we are live
in five, four, three, two...
