** Olivia herself sometimes, at least in the first season. [[spoiler:One of the reasons why Andrew Nichols refused to release her even though Fitz did what he wanted is because he knew that Olivia would have the problem fixed the day she got back]].



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: The Popes are a BigScrewedUpFamily who, at times, aren't afraid to kill each other if they get in each other's way, but God help you if an outside force tries anything. [[spoiler:For example, Maya Pope loves big paychecks, but when she was pinged to assassinate Mellie, she tried to kill her employer instead, as said employer was putting Olivia and her ambitions at risk]].



** In season 4, [[spoiler: Andrew Nichols and Elizabeth North. Andrew might have undergone a FaceHeelTurn after getting forced to break up with Mellie.]]

** Implied to be happening with Olivia. It starts in "The Miseducation of Susan Ross," in which she scares Susan's husband into [[spoiler: [[DrivenToSuicide killing himself]] when he refuses to publicly disclose that he is her daughter's real father]]. She quickly realizes this is wrong, but the White Hat is officially set on fire when she [[spoiler: pounds Andrew's face in with a chair, killing him.]]

* IHatePastMe: Huck is tormented by a hallucination of his pre-Hole, clean-shaven self in "Dead in the Water."

** Cyrus is (understandably) suspected of [[killing Frankie Vargas]] for the first half of season six.



** Rowan's "I am very smary prey" speech is first given to Oliva in "Survival of the Fittest." It takes on new meaning when it is shown again in "Extinction." We find out [[spoiler: Rowan killed Frankie Vargas and framed Cyrus under orders from a mysterious group that threatened to kill his girlfriend Sandra and Olivia if he didn't. Also, the dead body of Sandra (whom Rowan had killed so she couldn't be leveraged against him) was hidden in the room the whole time.]]

Added DiffLines:

** "Dead in the Water" has a major Series/Sherlock ShoutOut as Huck's "mind palace" is the conference room of OPA as he [[spoilers: struggles to free himself from a car sinking in water]]. There's even a math equation on the Big Board. Other parts of the episode salute the works of AlfredHitchcock, including Film/Psycho and Film/Vertigo.

** In season 5, Cyrus is convinced Vargas is sleeping with a reporter and goes so far as to have her beat up to drive her away from the campaign. When Vargas finds out, he's horrified not just by what Cyrus did but his assumption Vargas was like Fitz as he makes it clear he's happily married and would never cheat on his wife.

** Subverted in season 5. When he sees Vargas stepping off a bus with an attractive reporter, Cyrus is convinced the duo are having an affair and terrified that this is going to be just like Fitz and Olivia. He has a contact "lean on" the reporter which leaves her with a battered face. Vargas confronts him on it, Cyrus defending himself on "I've seen this play out, I know how it ends" and this affair would ruin Vargas...at which point, Vargas yells he's a happily married man and there was never any affair. Cyrus is rocked to realize his belief Vargas could be like Fitz is what sets the events of the season into motion.
