Olitz fans, rejoice!

Thursday’s episode of Scandal featured the moment Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) fans had always hoped for, but weren’t really sure would ever happen: Fitz chose Olivia once and for all!

After Mellie (Bellamy Young) put a deadline on their marriage, Fitz decided to run the clock out alongside Olivia, proving that his heart was with her, instead of the First Lady. Despite the outcome, Mellie didn’t falter, going on live news at the deadline and revealing to the nation that the President had been unfaithful in their marriage. Does this mean Olivia and Fitz finally get to be together?

Meanwhile, after OPA deduces that Charlie (George Newbern) is behind the attack on Huck (Guillermo Diaz), they all suspect Cyrus (Jeff Perry) is the mole, but — twist! — someone else is the mysterious Albatross. Who is it?! caught up with Goldwyn, who also directed the episode, to get the scoop on the future of America’s favorite couple and what’s in store for the finale:

Now that the news is out there that Fitz has been unfaithful, what’s the immediate fallout like?
Tony Goldwyn:
Mellie has taken a nuclear option. She’s really blown things up. Fitz is willing to take responsibility for that. He takes what he says to Liv very seriously when he relays to her what Cyrus had said: You have to sacrifice for what you love. Fitz is done. He believes that he’s gone so far off the rails in terms of being true to himself that it’s only resulted in literally death and destruction. The only path he sees is to get real, and it began with that conversation he had with Mellie where she said their marriage is a lie and when he confronts her with the true story of how they met. Fitz has committed himself to facing the truth. He confessed to Cyrus about killing Verna (Debra Mooney). Whatever the fallout is, he’s willing to take the responsibility for that.

When Mellie went on air, she made it seem like they would be trying to repair their marriage. Was that part of her game plan — trying to force his hand into making it work?
I think so. At the end of the day, Mellie wants Fitz and wants to hang onto power. Mellie is an incredibly clever woman, in many ways cleverer than Fitz. She wants to have her cake and eat it too.
