Senator Edison Davis introduces Olivia to two of his constituents. They are the worried parents of Jenny, a pretty college student who has been missing for several days. This supposedly innocent girl is actually the author of a blog called “Beltway Unbuckled” where she describes her sexcapades with various political heavyweights. There hasn’t been a new post since the day Jenny went missing. There’s a chance she’s an indentified girl who was hospitalized in Rhode Island. That hope is extinguished as Olivia identifies a dead body found in a ditch as her client’s missing daughter.
Harrison and Quinn learn the make and model of the vehicle Jenny was riding in before she was left for dead in that ditch. It belongs to a Kurkistani diplomat named Alexander Lavich. The guy is basically untouchable because of diplomatic immunity. The only way they can possibly get to him is if the President of the United States gets his own government to revoke his privileges. So Olivia heads off to the White House to make that happen. Too bad Fitz is less than cooperative when he walks in on her meeting with Cyrus.
Mellie doesn’t want her hubby sweating on the sofa in the baby’s nursery. Fitz doesn’t have much choice since that’s where he’s been sleeping lately. If only he could leave for the upcoming G8 Summit sooner. But he can’t. The guy has a country to run. Mellie is tired of being treated as a second class power player by both Fitz and Cyrus. She wants to be heard. Speaking of being heard, Olivia puts Jenny’s parents in front of the TV cameras to gain public sympathy.
U.S. Attorney David Rosen is sleeping with Abby Whelan of Olivia Pope & Associates. It’s a conflict of interest of epic proportions. Actually, it’s in David’s “best” interest if he wants to get info about the Quinn Perkins trial fiasco. He also happens to like Abby. David’s assistant, Alyssa, has dubbed him 007 as she helps him uncover phone records that detail calls from Quinn’s old boyfriend to the head of security at a company run by one of the president’s biggest supporters—powerful energy man Hollis Doyle.
David pays a visit to Hollis to ask about the small software company in California where Jesse Tyler, Quinn’s old boyfriend, worked. He leaves with very little information. In other news, Olivia stops by the hospital where Supreme Court Justice Verna Thornton is secretly receiving cancer treatments. She even turns off her phone as a show of support for her old friend. These two ladies go way back, which is why Verna has no problem telling Olivia that she’s making a mistake in pushing Fitz away.
