|Plot:Â Jake booked a hotel suite for booty calls. Olivia lets him know that she doesn’t do booty calls. The two of them take a breather from their morning run. Jake points to Cyrus sitting on a bench in the distance. He clues in Liv to the fact that sheâ€™s about to engage in a political booty call. On the bright side, park benches are a lot cheaper than DC hotel suites. Cyrus asks Olivia to do him a favor. Actually, heâ€™s blackmailing her into assuring that a power couple, James and Lisa Elliot, show up at Fitz’s State of the Union address. These two have dedicated their lives to getting guns off the streets. They are the perfect couple. Everybody loves them. Too bad they don’t love each other at the moment. The wheelchair that confines Lisa is a big cause of the tension. Olivia lets the combustible couple know that they need to put their issues aside for the good of their country.Â Mellie is caught on camera munching on potato chips in her bathrobe while seated on the ground at her son’s gravesite. This has the press questioning her state of mind. Fitz’s request for her to get it together to show up at the State of the Union doesn’t go over well. So Cyrus joins Mellie for some fried chicken. They chat about the people they’ve lost. This conversation doesn’t end well either. Abby preps David for his confirmation hearing. He does well. Unfortunately, Lizzy lets Cyrus know that claims of domestic abuse may hurt the Attorney General candidate, as well as the man who nominated him. Lizzy wants David to decline his nomination. That’s not something the candidate is willing to do. David wants to win. He uses info from all those big, bad B613 files to blackmail a hardnosed senator into giving him a ringing endorsement.
