Olivia pays Cyrus a visit and tells him she knows about Daniel Douglas. Cyrus tells her he has it covers. She begins sobbing and laughing hysterically. She thinks it is hilarious that “they’re all murderers in the presidential debate, it is literally made up of murderer row.” Olivia tells Cyrus that he stole Fitz’s opportunity to run a clean campaign, and she says Cyrus is “dragging her back into the dark.” Cyrus begs Olivia not to tell Fitz, and Olivia tells him she can’t do this again and he is on his own.

Cyrus barges in to Olivia’s office and tells her they have to cancel the debate, because Sally Langston is about to confess her sins on national TV. Cyrus breaks down and tells Olivia he needs her help.
Olivia pays Sally a visit to see exactly “what they are dealing with.” Olivia tells Sally she knows what is going on and that Sally plans to confess.

The next day Cyrus hears a buzzing in his office, he realizes that someone has planted a microphone in the picture frame on his desk.
