[first lines]
Olivia Pope: [arriving at the restaurant] I'm so sorry. This is not... I'm not a late person, and I don't want you to think our meeting isn't a priority.
Jake Ballard: It's a date.
Olivia Pope: What?
Jake Ballard: You said meeting. I'm not a client. I don't have a problem. I don't need fixing. I asked you out. You said yes. We dressed up. At the end of the evening if all goes well there will be kissing. This is not a meeting, this is a date. And I don't want to insult you. You chose this restaurant.

I just love t his show, the actors are all so good! I have seen a review of today's episode, I just can't wait to see it! I am a huge fan of Fiz/Olivia, I just hope they keep them together....If you have not seen it, just watch, it's the best series ever!! I am still not sure what Jake is up to, but I think he is a creep, too Much of a coincidence, knocking Olivia's phone out of her hand, he is Working for somebody, could be Eddison, maybe Mellie, she wants A hot guy to take her away from Fitz! But really why has Fitz chosen to Stay with Mellie, she is so bad, she is launch a bitch ! why doesn't He get it? Maybe he is playing her!! Very confusing, but that is what Makes it so good!
