Character Bio

Olivia Pope photo
Olivia Pope is a fixer. The best in D.C. A title earned first by getting an underdog candidate elected President. What makes Olivia Pope the best is that she doesn’t fix problems. She fixes clients. She fixes people. They come to her at their lowest moment. On the worst day of their lives. Covered in blood, on the verge of conviction...when rock bottom is in sight and there’s nowhere left to turn they come to Olivia Pope for salvation. Olivia takes on the biggest scandals of our era, all the while trying to hide the fact that she’s one of the key players at the center of it all. This is particularly embodied by her forbidden love affair with Fitz otherwise known as Fitzgerald Grant, the President of the United States.

President Fitzgerald Grant: You want to sit?

05x21 - That's My Girl Season 5 / Episode 21: - That's My Girl

Rowan Pope: [holding a gun to Jake's head] Advise him, Olivia. Advise him to plant his narrow ass in that chair. I can't do that. It may look like it's my finger on the trigger. It might look I'm holding the gun. It's an illusion. You have your finger on this trigger. You're in control. His life is in your hands.
Olivia Pope: Go ahead.
Jake Ballard: Liv...
Olivia Pope: It's fine.
Rowan Pope: Is it?
Olivia Pope: Go ahead. Kill your son. Shoot him. Do it.
Jake Ballard: Liv...
Olivia Pope: Do it!
Rowan Pope: Is this how you pictured your death, Jake? At the hands of a woman you've done nothing but love and protect?
Olivia Pope: [whispering now] Come with me. He won't hurt you. You're his son.
Rowan Pope: [after a long pause] Go! Before I change my mind!
Jake Ballard: [now walking away from Rowan's house] Damn.
Olivia Pope: Damn.
