There were SEVERAL distinctive things that happened in “Molly, You in Danger, Girl” that gave me hope for a Team OFC reunion.
One – there’s a GREAT Olivia and Cyrus photo memento on her OPA desktop. Usually there are GREAT memorable photos of Olitz from back in the day (#WhereisFitz) but there’s a photo moment of her and Cyrus out on the campaign trail. Hats off to the amazing Scandal Set Design team on that!
I also lost count how many times she watch for Fitz especially when she was on the phone with Jake….
Two – There was plenty of Team OFC double talk going on. The ones that stuck out the most to me is Olivia quoting a Fitz line, “That’s petty, ridiculous and insulting” to Cyrus when she told him that Obsourne wasn’t the mole. Remember WHEN Fitz said something like that? It was for the classic Rose Garden scene.
Three – Fitz like Olivia would noticed later on in the episode noticed that Cyrus is not his usual self and he takes off the POTUS hat and become that person for him. Here’s what Fitz said to Cyrus that gave me hope for a Team OFC Reunion - “You’re still camped out at the Masland?” “The Hotel, Cy. Has your husband let you come back home yet?” “I’m The President. I know all things.” Cyrus: I’m fine sir. You don’t have to concern yourself with my love life.” Fitz: “But you do love him.” Cyrus: “Of course.” Fitz: “Don’t give up on him if you love him. Don’t give up. Just…don’t give up.” (Fitz wasn’t only talking about Cyrus and James but himself and Olivia.) This conversation gave me hope for Jamus, Olitz and OFC!
Four - Fitz lets Cyrus back in into his corner by telling him that he killed Verna Thornton. This of course ties in with point #3. All I took from this moment was him saying Will she forgive me if she knew? Did anyone catch how he inhaled before he dropped that truth bomb? Did anyone catch that moment of silence after he said that to Cyrus?
Look at what Cyrus had to say about this…
“There are things…We don’t tell them. Things we never tell them. Things we bury. Things we hide. That’s the job. You did something…sir. It doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be happy.” Am I the only one that took this as something Cyrus was also referring to himself and James? This is what it’s all about right? This applies to what Defiance did to Cyrus & James, Olivia & Fitz, and Team OFC. You gotta love Scandal double talk.
Five - “Hi” No explanation needed!
I could go on and on about moments that gave me hope for a Team OFC reunion from “Molly, You in Danger, Girl” but I think you get the point. It was great, wasn’t it? What say you? Sound off Gladiators!
