Love this Olitz parallel!
#neckgate in action. Inspired by the brilliant scandallove’s original post.
Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III and his tendency to try and fix things with a kiss.
Favorite Cyrus Beene moment: You’re ticking, sir.
This OPA moment never, ever gets old! Happy #ScandalAnniversary

Gotta love Olitz’s I can’t co-sign that facial expressions…
On Twitter I had a great tweet chat with Gladiators on this question. How long has Jake been doing this favor to Fitz? (This will of course explain Jake’s fascination with Olivia. He’s been the one doing the video surveillance. Tom’s the one doing the photo surveillance. Tom’s team keeping his boss happy!)
But I digress….
Fitz gave Gladiators a heads up about this when he said the following…
I never should have asked Tom to call you.
And here’s what Jake said back to Fitz…
If you don’t mind me asking we made the jump from photo surveillance to video surveillance.
Knowing this it’s safe to say that Jake has been watching Olivia since BEFORE Fitz learned about Defiance. Hat tip to Ale who pointed out Fitz and Jake haven’t seen each other in years and they’re now seeing each other twice a week. So Jake’s new to this surveillance game and he’s already ‘smitten’ by Olivia Pope. (Anything is possible!) This of course puts much perspective into Fitz’s “I watch for you” line from the Rose Garden scene, does it not? We all know he had Tom on photo surveillance of Olivia too. (Tom delivered the photos of Olivia with Edison during Fitz’s pre 50th birthday hoopla way back in “Defiance.” I might also add that this is the last Fitz saw Olivia before #WhoShotFitz happened.)
We also know that Cyrus used Thorngate to get photos of Olivia with Edison that he personally pass along to Fitz. (Peep “Hunting Season” ) You gotta love how you can watch one episode of Scandal again and you still manage to catch something new, right? (These photo surveillance updates is how Fitz learned about Olivia’s relationship with Senator Edison Davis.)
So to answer the question - there’s no clear estimate on how long Jake has been doing this favor for Fitz. Anything is possible!
What say YOU? Sound off Gladiators!
Fitz: “You want something?”
Mellie: “I need to make some plans”
Mellie: “For my future, after your first term is done because you’re never going to make it to a second term because clearly you’re a once around the ballroom kind of President.”
Fitz: “Mellie, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Mellie: “Olivia Pope. I’m talking about Olivia Pope. You took her hunting? Really, honey? She could be facing federal prison but you needed to spend a few minutes with your girlfriend. That’s…it’s sweet, if it didn’t mean the end of your political career because you won’t make it to a second term. I will make sure of it — because I need to make some plans for my political future, and I do have a bright, bright political future. The sweet lawyer who gave up her career for her husband, suffered a miscarriage, then had a late in life baby while First Lady…that’s gold. That’s a future president. That’s a hell of a second act, and America loves a second act.”
Mellie: “Get over her.”
Mellie: “GET OVER HER! You see her again, I’ll blow you away. And I’m an excellent shot, remember.”
