Gladiator Report: Season 4 Episode 18 "Honor Thy Father"

Welcome to the Gladiator Report for the "Honor Thy Father" 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!

A Killer Plan: David is going full speed ahead with his plans to take down B613. Jake…not so much. He eavesdrops on the plan to use other agents to reel him in. He’s later caught by Charlie in the hideout where the agents have been attacked. A brutal fight takes place. Jake ends up fleeing the scene. Huck and Charlie realize what they have to do next.

Chalk One Up for the Bad Guys: So, Huck and Charlie convince Quinn that they need to kill Jake. That won’t be easy. Jake has set up shop in the apartment across from Olivia’s place. He lets Huck and Quinn know that she’ll be fine as long as nothing happens to him. This puts a wrinkle in the plan.

Making Peace and Harmony: Elizabeth takes a trip down south to learn that Mellie’s half-sister Harmony could cause serious damage to her campaign. That’s why they need to welcome her into the fold. In other words, Mellie needs to make nice. That proves to be quite challenging. Mellie needs some help from Fitz to avoid what happens here:

The Truth Comes Out: David can’t let it end this way. He leaves a voice message saying that he will testify against Jake, who overhears the whole thing. David makes his way to his car with his assistant, Holly. Jake steps up to them with a gun drawn. Incredibly, Holly has a gun, too.

Can’t Trust Anyone: Olivia is startled when she wakes up next to Russell. Actually, his name is Franklin, as in Franklin Russell. Olivia is surprised he gave her a fake name when she picked him up in the bar. Of course, she introduced herself as Alex, so let’s call it even. In other news, Jake lets David know that he was always part of the plan to take down B613. This is war now. More will be coming. In fact, they are already here.
