|Plot:Â When we last left Hollis Doyle, he was stepping into an elevator with the man who is planning to kill him. Huck hops inside the car before the doors close. He stops Charlie from carrying out the hit.Â CyrusÂ is in shock whenÂ OliviaÂ reveals that Hollis didn’t try to kill the president. In other news,Â FitzÂ andÂ MellieÂ take part in a photo shoot to give the world its first look at their new baby boy. They play nice until the PR moment is done. Fitz is still moving forward with divorce plans. He knows Mellie induced labor to manipulate him. He asks Olivia to wait for him as he kisses and caresses her. She’ll have to think about that one. Supreme Court Justice Verna Thornton is the person who hired Becky to assassinate the president. Olivia figures this out, but knows she can’t turn her in. Verna says, « Confessing does more harm than good. » If that’s true, then why does she make a call toÂ David Rosen? Even though the persistent Assistant U.S. Attorney was summoned to Verna’s hospital room, he’s blocked from seeing her. That’s because she already has a visitor. Fitz is in her room. He screams for help when Verna stops breathing. Efforts to revive her are unsuccessful. Verna Thornton is dead. Fitz wears a troubled look on his face as he gazes out the window of the Oval Office. Cyrus is ordered to assemble a list of possible replacement justices before meeting up with Mellie in the hallway. The First Lady would rather be where the action is than with her new child. Cyrus feels the same way because, as Mellie so eloquently puts itâ€¦ « Nobody likes babies. » Mellie also assures Cyrus that she will go nuclear if Fitz goes public with his divorce thoughts. After she destroys her hubby, she’ll run for office herself. Good to know.
