It was a tough week for fathers on "Scandal," but an even tougher one for the supposed mole in the White House. CIA Director Osborne was suspected to be the mole. After he realized he was being tailed and got fired by Cyrus, he committed suicide. So that was the end of that storyline, right? No way! This is "Scandal." There are layers upon layers of deceit and manipulation.
"And now everyone thinks Osborne is the mole. Or, was," Jake told his associate, thus revealing that Jake was actually the mole. Poor Osborne was just a patsy.
"I was hoping [Jake] was just bad boyfriend material, not poised to bring down the U.S.," wrote HitFix of the reveal. With his connections to both Fitz and Olivia, Jake is set to be a major player -- in the worst possible way.
On the father front, Mellie told Fitz that his kids didn't want to be around him because he's becoming a miserable drunk. Will that be the wake-up call he needs to get his act together? There are no easy solutions for Hollis. His daughter orchestrated her own kidnapping just to extort money out of him. When she got caught, Hollis offered her either the money, or a clean slate and a chance to come home.
She took the money.
The unexpected twists and turns keep coming on "Scandal," Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
