With Cyrus (Jeff Perry) as her Vice President, Mellie tried to get a bill passed that offered free college education to American citizens. At the same time Mellie had to deal with a US CIA agent who was being held by terrorists.

Not taking Mellie’s decision, Olivia went behind her back to free the agent and reunite him with his family. When Mellie found out the two women engaged in a heated argument, with Olivia telling Mellie she has to listen to her if she wants to go down in history.
