During a break from foundation work, Fitz and Marcus (Cornelius Smith Jr.), formerly of OPA, grab a beer at a bar to discuss business and have some guy talk.
"We're going to do great things," Fitz promises Marcus, who turned down Mellie's offer to be her communications director to run the foundation. "I need you. We're a team."
It doesn't take long before the former POTUS asks Marcus about "her," but it's not who you'd think. When Marcus answers in the negative, Fitz is surprised at the answer.
"You haven't spoken to Mellie?" Fitz asks, referring to Marcus' former flame. "I thought you were asking about Liv," Marcus says with a laugh. "I haven't spoken to Olivia," Fitz replies. Apparently, the two have more in common than they thought.
