Scandal Recap: "Top of the Hour"
Jake took the information he acquired about the hostages directly to Fitz. He told the Commander-in-Chief there was a SEAL team in place, and Fitz gave the go-ahead. To the horror of Dir. Osborne, the mission was a success, and all hostages were rescued without any American casualties. This “win” for the Grant Administration also finally knocked the Judge Randall affair out of the news cycle.
When Mellie saw Jake leaving Fitz's office after a late night meeting, she did not assume her husband had “switched teams.” (Which, yeah, that makes sense. But…imagine if she had, just for a second?!) Instead, she realized Cyrus must be right about Fitz and Olivia really being over. He was “single” and still didn’t want her, his wife, back. The realization seemed to hurt the otherwise self-assured Mellie.
Mellie told Cyrus about Jake. Since Fitz hadn’t needed to consult either of them about his rescue mission, the frenemies commiserated over both being replaced in Fitz’s life.
