U.S. Attorney and all-around good guy David Rosen lets Hollis Doyle know he believes the Cytron explosion was linked to a scheme to rig the last presidential election. There’s room for only one deal. If it’s not with him, it’ll be with one of his co-conspirators. This sends Hollis to Olivia demanding she handle David before he takes everyone down. While at the office, Quinn shoots daggers at Hollis with her eyes. She knows that he’s the man who killed her boyfriend back when she was Lindsay Dwyer.
Two years ago, Lindsay Dwyer gets word that she passed the bar. She shares this exciting news with her boyfriend, Jesse Tyler, who is in the small town of Defiance, Ohio. He’s there swapping out a voting machine in order to rig the election so that Fitzgerald Grant can become President of the United States. Jesse is paid a million bucks for the job, but that isn’t enough. He demands more from Hollis Doyle. When he doesn’t get it, Jesse angrily knocks over some coffee effectively frying his laptop.
Becky is hired by Hollis to take care of the Jesse Tyler problem. She packs a bomb in a box that’s addressed to the offices of Cytron Software. She lists the sender as Lindsay Dwyer. Becky also sends a text to make it seem as though Jesse is having an affair. This spurs a furious Lindsay to leave a heated phone message that could be seen as a death threat. Later, Jesse receives the package he believes to be from Lindsay. BOOM! An explosion rocks the Cytron building. Becky completes the first part of her mission, but can’t serve up Lindsay to the cops when she sees Huck kidnapping her.In present day, Mellie lets Cyrus know that her hubby asked for a divorce.
