Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) have always had a good relationship. Despite his troubled past, he’s treated Olivia like an older sister and Olivia has taken care of him like a younger brother.
Things were going well until last episode where, like most things involving Olivia’s father, the relationship took a bad turn.
When Huck thought that Rowan/Eli Pope (Joe Morton) may be the head of B16—the organization that pulled Huck in and eventually destroyed his life when he disobeyed an order—he confronted Olivia in a parking garage to find out for himself. This confrontation included face-grabbing and yelling, something Huck had never done to Olivia before.
Although this will cause a rift in their relationship, according to TVGuide.com, they will eventually move past this tragic event.
“At first it's strained and it's awkward to be around each other after that. But with family, sometimes you have to go through that stuff,” Diaz said. “Sometimes you have to have a real hard-core fight to bring you closer. It was about time for Huck to flip out on her and vent.
“I feel like it's going to bring them closer and make them love each other even more and work harder together and they're going to be OK.”
While it may take some time for Huck and Olivia to get back to anything that resembles normal, Washington D.C. will have to deal with something much more imminent—a bomb threat. According to ABC.com, the perpetrator will be a mother from the Midwest who happens to be one of Olivia’s clients.
