Scandal Recap: "YOLO"
This week's episode of Scandal featured crazy twists setting the stage for next week’s epic winter finale. There was torture, multiple relationships imploding and someone didn’t make it through alive.
Olivia Realized Her Mom Was a Terrorist
Olivia (Kerry Washington) and her team took her “back from the dead” mother to a safe house, until they could figure out a way to sneak her out of the country.
Highlights included: Jake (Scott Foley) and Huck (Guillermo Díaz) grabbing Maya (Khandi Alexander) and cutting a tracking device out of her neck, Rowan’s (Joe Morton) office blowing up (he got away) and another Jake-Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) showdown.
Maya told the group she’d planned to go public once she discovered her husband was a monster, so he had her locked up for decades. OPA needed to get a private plane, after Rowan sent out a file saying Maya was a terrorist named Marie and put her on the No-Fly List.
After hugging her mother goodbye and watching her fly off, Olivia had a flashback. She remembered her mother’s friend calling to speak to “Marie,” but she’d thought it was a wrong number. Olivia realized her mother really was the terrorist. Now, OPA had to get her back.
