Olitz 4EVA! Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) finally went public with their relationship on the Oct. 1 episode of Scandal, and things were all kinds of scandalous. (You’re welcome.) It was a night full of shocking reveals and snugglefests, and we’re rounding up five big moments for you to enjoy. Big, like Olivia’s wine glass.

Huck Tries to Murder Someone With a Pencil, Is Terrifying
Remember when Huck (Guillermo Díaz) murdered a busload of randoms last season? Well, everyone’s feeling really iffy about him, and for good reason. This week, he tried to stab a tragic press photographer with a pencil, and the look in his eyes can only be described as whack. Though are we surprised? This is the man who licked Quinn’s (Katie Lowes) face.
*Note: we’ll never look at a pencil in the same way again.
Jake + Liz =
We know, we know, Olitz is happening and it’s glorious, but what about Jake (Scott Foley)? He and Olivia definitely have a connection, and the spark between them this week was brief, but still intense. Olivia’s eyes legit lit up when she saw him! Then again, that happens to us whenever we see Scott Foley.
Jake and Olivia Get Their Snuggle On
First of all, Olivia drank beer during this scene, which was horrifying. But on the plus side, she and Jake had a sweet bonding session as they lay in the same bed together and spooned. It was just like old times, only with way more sexual tension and no actual sex.

Elizabeth North Remains Conniving
Turns out Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi) leaked photos of Olivia and the president, and Abby (Darby Stanchfield) totally called her out. Weirdly, all Abby wants out of the situation is to be Elizabeth’s equal/BFF, so guess it all worked out in the end. You know, minus Olivia and Fitz’s relationship going public.
Olivia (Finally) Real Talks
In a shocking last minute twist, a horde of paps confronted Olivia and asked if she was the president’s mistress. And despite Fitz letting her off the hook in an emotional phone message, her answer was clear: “yes.” *Flails*
Tell Us: Were you surprised that Olivia came clean about her relationship with the president?
