So Gorgeous, love this picture of Paula..

Olivia and Fitz’s final moment in the Oval from White Hat’s Back On.
You can run clean. You can start fresh. Run clean. We went too far. Over the wrong cliff.
Olivia offers Fitz a fresh start, a clean slate, a do-over. Olivia telling Fitz to let go of his dad, Verna, whatever happened in his past, and Defiance to run and win was her also going that clean slate route too.
Olivia also wanted to a do-over to fix things. She’s going back to re-start/reset things with OPA. They need her. She’s their gladiator.
I can’t leave them. They need me. I’m their gladiator.
What I love about this scene is that it echoes that moment from White Hat’s Off with Fitz looking out the window. He knew what would happened before Olivia walked into the Oval. He wanted a fresh start with Olivia. (I also love that moments of silence in between two.) When he called her Liv though? When he said “No, that’s not the plan.” (Hold me.)
I want you by my side. We can do this together. You are going to be my First Lady.
I loved that Verna and Jake is out in the open between them. I also loved how Lyn Paolo dressed Olivia in gray. I also love that Fitz forgave her and he didn’t care about what happened with Jake.
We can start over. We can start fresh. No big deal. I’m guessing you don’t feel the same way about murder.
That is the point of Olitz right then and there. That’s what I took from this moment. I didn’t take it as a break-up but as a fresh start, a clean slate. Defiance, Verna and Jake is now over. The past is over. It’s a clean slate. The reset button was hit. And that’s why it’s so brilliant that Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground played at the end of this moment.
