Wowzers, what a great episode! I may be in the minority, but I love Mellie! Her character may be the most complicated one of them all right now. I didn't see the rape coming at all. I don't think she necessarily kept it quiet in order to further Fitz' career. I think she kept it quiet so that the two men wouldn't go to war with each other, but the side effects of her being able to control the father wasn't lost on her. One thing is for sure, they did love each other at one point in time. I still think Mellie loves Fitz. Heck I think Fitz still loves Mellie, he's just more infatuated with the girl he can't have. Loved how he finally stood up for her in that last interview.
I figured that Olivia's mom was still alive as well. I am curious as to why she's been held in a cell for the past 20 years. She sure looks like hell.
I felt bad for Quinn. She's a fool though - she was well aware of who and what Charlie is. And now she's part of B (whatever number lol) whether she wants to be or not.
