The position that he now has is one where you have to put all friendships and allegiances aside.
Unfortunately, being Command has put him in that position.
First, James (Dan Bucatinsky) is leaking information to the press about the First Lady's husband. Foley: This whole Publius story line is interesting, aside from the horrendous name, which is obviously a throwback from Shonda Rhimes to the Roman Empire.
Any threat to the Republic is a job for Jake and something that he takes very seriously regardless of where it's coming.
It's got to be extremely hurtful for Olivia with this back and forth. Foley: Jake really believes in B613 and his mission.
I don't think Jake would ever put her in that position. He's been looking for that for a long time and maybe thinks he's found it with her. I also think that he believes that Rowan [Joe Morton] did it the wrong way and did the organization a disservice by doing it the wrong way by treating its operatives in a way that didn't need to be done.
He now knows Rowan is working with Leo (Paul Adelstein). Foley: I don't think his first objective is to take Rowan down.
You're dealing with a Vice President [Kate Burton] who killed her husband [Jack Coleman] and people know about it.
It gets more complicated because Olivia (Kerry Washington) might actually have feelings for Jake (Scott Foley), which she admitted to Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) during Thursday's episode.
] The president of the United States is having an affair with his campaign manager, who is hiding the truth by dating the head of a secret Black Ops division of the government, who is in turn chummy with POTUS.
It's a really big threat to the president and the Republic, so I think it's going to be on Jake's plate sooner or later.
We also now know that Adnan Salif (Nazanin Boniadi) is working with Mama Pope (Khandi Alexander).
