Daughter of the Year
Jake and Fitz can not decide how to go after Rowan. Jake wants to take the lead and go in with his own team to take down Rowan. Fitz just wants to jump blindly into B6-13 and take Rowan. The two continue to fight over how they will go after Rowan. When Olivia gets back home, she calls her dad. She tells him that he was right. She finally realized that Fitz and Jake where only interested in their own self-interest. She tells Rowan that they don’t care about her at all. Olivia wants to have dinner with her dad. They agree to have dinner. When Olivia gets off of the phone she calls Fitz. Olivia tells him that it is a go. Olivia plans to use herself as bait so they can catch her father.
Olivia meets Rowan for dinner. Rowan tells her that he is glad that she called. Rowan looks at Olivia curistiously. He tells her that he hasn’t been the perfect father. He gives her a motivational speech about how bad he has been and how great she turned out. While Rowan is talking a team of snipers get in position to shoot Rowan. Rowan tells Olivia that he never put his job before her. He tells her that everything he has done is because of her. Rosen acquires the B6-13 files that were in Jake’s storage unit. Rowan tells her that he is who is his because of her. He tells her that she meant everything to him but this is over. He explains that he is leaving. He then says that all of the men outside (sent to kill him) are dead because of her. Rowan has his team kill everyone that was in position to kill him. The snipers, units around the corner everyones dies. Rowan then gets his epic rant in. He tells her that she will never be one of those people, referencing Fitz and Jake. He tells her that she has been blinded by the bright white light. He tells her that they are not her people, that she will never be one of them.
Rosen has his team go through the files to find out that they are all blank.
Rowan is disappointed that she would turn on her own father. He feels that she has forsaken him. He tells her that she is on her own for the first time. He tells her that since she thought the world was so terrible with him, wait till she sees the world without him. Rowan leaves the restaurant and hops in his car, while ambulances and EMT teams rush to the scene.
“It’s always the ones closest to you, the ones that say they care the most that do the most damage.” When I first heard Cyrus utter this I wondered why he said it, as Olivia helped him out. Then as we see the episode play out we know that Rowan was tipped off. Was it Cyrus who tipped Rowan off? They have worked together in the past. But I thought that the plan that Jake, Fitz and Olivia had was between the three of them. I could be wrong. I knew that Rowan would find out some way.
I never doubted Rowan for a second that anyone especially his own daughter would get the best of him. He has always been 2 steps ahead of his rivals and 3 steps ahead of Olivia. How lost and confused is Olivia to go against her father in such a way? I understand that they never saw eye to eye but what Olivia did was a bit much. As Rowan said she knows what they would do to someone like him. It wasn’t going to be a jail sentence to camp cupcake or even life. They were going to have a trial and execute him. Who would put their own father in such a situation? Blood is thicker than water. I’m sure I’m alone in my feelings of Olivia but I never really liked her outside of the way she gets things done (professionally).
Olivia sluts herself out to Jake and Fitz every week. She chooses to commit adultery rather than choosing a man that really loves her. If that wasn’t bad enough she conspires to kill her own father wdf is wrong with this broad?
