Mellie Lies to America About Having a Miscarriage
- Season one, episode six
- What goes down: While on the campaign trail, presidential hopeful Fitzgerald Grant realizes he's behind in the polls with women thanks to steep competition from female candidate Sally Langston. Fitz says they'll push through, and he wants to keep everything above board, but Mellie has other ideas. As they sit in a cute, little pie shop at a campaign stop, Mellie takes matters into her own hands and fabricates a story about her once having a miscarriage, to earn sympathy with female voters. This is one of our earliest glimpses of Cutthroat Mellie as she leans in to a shocked Fitz and whispers, "I think that ought to take care of it, don't you?" Chills.
