S1, E2 : “Dirty Little Secrets”
Episode 2 picks up right where the first left off, as Olivia Pope takes on a new major client for the week. Washington DC’s number one madam Sharon Marquette, needs the Pope agency to protect her client list and plethora of assets from the Distract Attourney’s office. Dating back to 1986, the list contains a many senators and congressmen, even Supreme Court nominee and President’s pick Patrick Keating. Of course Olivia figures this connection out and dashes to the White House to alert the President’s team of the incoming media bomb, but not before having a standoff with antagonist JJ, counseling Mr. and Mrs. Keating (now new clients as well-duh), and assigning newbie agent Quinn to monitor Amanda Tanner in the hospital.
