|Plot:Â Olivia shares an uncomfortable dinner with her dad. The subject of her mother comes up. Eli finds this surprising since he believes that everything she’s become in life is because of him. Olivia argues that it’s all « in spite » of him. Rowan lets his daughter know that as long as her friends leave him alone, he’ll leave them alone. Thatâ€™s not going to happen. Huck talks Jake through downloading some secret files. He narrowly escapes notice when Rowan comes home after his dinner with Olivia. Leo Bergen is one of the top strategists in town â€“ second rate to Olivia Pope. Cyrus and Mellie want him to run the president’s reelection campaign. Sounds like a great gig. Too bad Leo doesn’t want the job. He doesn’t do losers. That’s how the president looks to him. He doesn’t think Fitz’s heart is in the job. He’s going to lose come election time. Leo thanks Cyrus and Mellie for the offer and the tour of the Oval office before heading off to another meeting with Congresswoman Josie Marcus. He has no idea that his services will no longer be needed. This is because Josie has already found her new campaign manager in Olivia Pope. Josie tells Olivia about the baby she had back in Montana when she was 15 years old. Her mother helped her keep things a secret until she could put the child up for adoption. Not even her little sister, Candace, knows about this. But there are about five people in her small Montana hometown who do. They may talk as her political star rises. Josie believes her now-grown daughter deserves her privacy. No one can ever know about it. That’s the congresswoman’s problem. She orders Olivia to go ahead and fix it. A short time later, Harrison, Abby, Huck and Quinn are checking in to a not-so-luxurious suite in Red Springs, Montana.
