Patrick Keating is slated to be President Grant's first Supreme Court nominee. His nomination is affected, however, by the presence of his name on madam Sharon Marquette's client list. Later, it is revealed that he was on the list because his wife, Stacy Keating, the woman he married turned out to be a "call girl" who once worked for Sharon. To ensure that Patrick still wins the position, Olivia Pope & Associates approach every other powerful person on the Senate Judiciary Committee who are also on Sharon's list and blackmail them into agreeing on the approval of Patrick Keating for the high court with unprecedented bipartisan support.
