President Fitz's Endgame Is Two-Fold
While this isn't the first time all hell has broken loose for the former Republican Governor of California, he certainly seems to take it all in stride. Over the course of last season, he made it known that he not only no longer loves his wife, Mellie, but he also wants a divorce.
Last night's episode found him making it clear to both Olivia and Mellie his intentions, warning the latter that "this is only the beginning," and giving audiences heat flashes with white-hot chemistry with the former. Add to that he leaked Olivia's name in the first place and you have a powder-keg of a third season in hand. In the end, President Fitz wants his chocolate cake and wants to make it First Lady, too.
