Gladiator Report: Season 4 Episode 12 "Gladiators Don't Run"

Welcome to the Gladiator Report for the "Gladiators Don't Run" episode of Scandal. Here you'll find highlights, quotes and more from the world of Olivia Pope and company. WARNING: There are spoliers here if you haven't seen the episode yet. Enjoy!

Casting a Dark Net: Fitz wants in on the auction for Olivia. So does Jake. Good thing Huck has a little cash stashed away. Olivia feels she’ll go for at least a billion dollars in the auction. Ian offers her the chance to go to the least-sadistic of the highest bidders. They are about to shake on this deal when something very bad happens.

Everybody Wants to Rule the World: Andrew refuses to sign the letter of resignation Cyrus was kind enough to draft for him. With his back is against the wall, Andrew threatens Mellie, who later lets her husband know that they need to let Andrew walk. She has a good reason.

You’ve Got a Friend: Abby worries when Olivia is a no-show for a coffee date. Her phone’s mailbox is full. There’s a wine stain on her sofa. Abby wants details from Huck and Quinn. She doesn’t get any. She’s not a gladiator anymore. So, she turns to someone she didn’t realize was a still friend.

Tales From Huck’s Dark Side: Huck needs to kill three men to gain access to the secret Olivia auction site. So he does. Jake helps in the aftermath by slicing off the dead men’s heads for proof of kill. He fears Huck has gone too far over to the dark side. Quinn assures him that’s not the case, but his demeanor suggests otherwise.

Soldier On: Death has already come for 43 U.S. soldiers who were killed in the war. Mellie is there to meet the plane bringing their bodies back home. She does this all the time. This sentiment has Fitz declaring that they have to get Olivia back so that the heroic actions of these soldiers were not done in vain.
