Scandal Recap: Where Is the Black Lady?

“Scandal” Season 4 Episode 11 “Where Is the Black Lady?” aired on Friday, Feb. 5, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. Olivia is desperate for a shower. So she summons her Olivia Pope powers and gets what she wants. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Everyone knows that Olivia Pope is missing. Being the gallant prince charming and president of the United States, Fitz attempts to speak with Jake Ballard to organize a rescue mission for Olivia. However, this was intercepted by the Secret Service, whose loyalty apparently lies with the vice president. Not just Secret Service but also White House staff, the aids even down to the valet, are all part of a “support group” created by the vice president to make sure that Fitz follows their orders.


To buy some time, Fitz demanded for a proof that Olivia is alive. Olivia’s captors then recorded a video of her. However, Olivia tricked them by asking for a glass of water and catching her kidnapper’s face on the camera. Still unsure of how to save Olivia, Fitz went to meet his former security detail, Tom Larsen, after the latter asked for pardon. Agent Larsen told Fitz that he can only talk freely in while at Olivia’s apartment since there is nobody he can trust at the White House. Fitz met up with Jake at Olivia’s apartment and handed him the video and asked him to find her.

Jake and the rest of the gladiators review the video. Unbeknownst to Jake and Quinn, Huck already paid a visit to Liv North and threatened her to divulge any information on Olivia’s whereabouts. Huck discovered the face of the man on the glass but could not identify him. Meanwhile an elderly lady was looking for Olivia to help her locate her friend. Turned out that the missing friend was Olivia’s next-door neighbor and the one that was shot last episode. Quinn went to her apartment to snoop and found the router which contained the identity of one of the kidnappers. This led the gladiators to id the man who led the kidnapping operation.

At the White House, Liv asked for Mellie’s help concerning the disappearance of Olivia. After seeing what Huck did to Liv, Mellie went on to work her magic on Andrew and managed to snatch his phones, which they gave to the gladiators with the hopes of narrowing their search.

While everyone was trying to save her, Olivia managed to talk to Ian her kidnapper into selling her into the highest bidder instead of being a babysitter. Ian apparently liked the idea, and Olivia managed to talk to Fitz and Ian informed him of his planned auction.
