First Aired: Oct. 03, 2013 on ABC
Summary: With Olivia's name out there as the President's mistress, both the White House and Pope & Associates face their biggest scandal to date, and a surprise allegiance is formed in order to get things handled. Meanwhile, Olivia's father, Rowan, will stop at nothing to carry out his orders and no…
Cyrus Beene: If you're talking about the president's affair with Olivia...
Rowan Pope: This is bigger than that. What do you know about Operation Remington?
Cyrus Beene: Only that it was a classified mission that Fitz flew with Jake Ballard in Iran, back when they were in the Navy. Most of it's redacted.
Rowan Pope: This Is what really happened on that mission.
Cyrus Beene: [opens and begins reading] Oh, my God.
Vanessa Chandler: It's just one source, but it's a good source. A source in a position to know the true identity of the president's mistress. And, well, you know how this works. It's just a matter of time before others come out of the woodwork and more details emerge.
Tanner Shaw: Can you give us an idea of how high up this person was in the administration?
Vanessa Chandler: No, but I will say that my source is 100% sure that Ms. Pope is the president's mistress, and if they're right, and obviously I believe they are, it's only a matter of time before more details come out.
