U.S. Attorney David knows that Olivia's team cleaned up the crime scene at Gideon's place. He calls the victim's cell phone, which rings in the office, to prove he's hip to their game. Quinn accompanies David to his office with her attorney, Harrison, by her side. Olivia shows up to give the full scoop on what's been happening. Surprisingly, David believes every word of her story. Unfortunately, he can't help Olivia because she broke the law. Quinn stays with him, as she's a material witness to a murder that will likely go unsolved since the crime scene was wiped clean.
Fitz believes his only course of action is to resign. It would be his chance to be a regular person. It would be his chance to be with Olivia. The two of them share a kiss in the Oval Office. Fitz doesn't care if they are caught on camera. Olivia can't let him go down like this. She knows she can't have him, as he belongs to the people. Olivia rallies the troops as everyone springs into action. Huck wants to know if she wants him to take care of Billy Chambers. Olivia makes him promise that he won't kill him. That's why Huck contacts his old torture victim, Charlie, to do his dirty work.
Olivia meets with Mellie, who blames her for the Amanda Tanner situation because she left the team. The two women figure out a counterattack in the media. Mellie will say the woman on the audio tape is her. She'll express her outrage at how this could happen during such a fragile time given that she's newly pregnant. They'll have to start trying right away to make sure that particular story sticks. Fitz is stunned. Mellie believes he could look a little happier since they did just save his presidency. As for Olivia, she turns in her security pass as she exits the White House.
Fitz still needs the vice president to throw him a show of support. Sally is reluctant to do this due to her moral beliefs. Her attitude changes the moment the president hands her a file Olivia had given him earlier. It contains proof that Sally's daughter had a secret abortion as a teen. Just like that, Sally is holding a press conference throwing her former right-hand man under the bus. Billy is devastated by this turn of events. He's unaware that things are about to get a lot worse as Charlie steps into the elevator with him. Speaking of Charlie, he had told Huck that Billy wasn't the one who hired him to kill Amanda Tanner. That honor apparently belongs to Cyrus Beene.
David tricks Quinn into giving up her fingerprints. He runs them himself. Later, he tells Olivia that he's breaking the law by bringing her back to her office. This is significant because David is not a person who breaks the law. With all of her colleagues surrounding her, Olivia stares at Quinn. She says, "Do you want to tell them who you are or should I?" It looks like we're going to have to wait awhile for the answer.
