Show/Episode: Scandal Season 5, Episode 1, “Heavy is the Head”
Ship(s): Olivia/Fitz (Olitz)
In the Season 5 opener of Scandal, Olivia and FItz are living one of their fantasies out in in technicolor. With Mellie kicked out of the White House, Liv has been sleeping over with Fitz. A lot. And judging by her reactions, Fitz really really really (no, REALLY) knows what he is doing in bed. As usual with Olitz, Olivia knows the best course of action for their relationship is to play it slow and steady for the long haul; Fitz is the emotional (read: spoiled) one who can’t bear to live his life unless it’s on his terms. Besides all of the sneaking around that Olitz has been doing, Fitz has been courting the nation of Caledonia to put an American naval base there. It also happens to be a monarchy that an American married into and became a princess with Grace Kelly-like fame. Unfortunately during the royal visit to America, Princess Emily’s story took a tragic Princess Diana turn, and she was killed in a car accident. The queen hired Olivia to make the spectacle as small as possible.
