Tense Showdowns Unfold in 'The Oval's' Latest Episode

Sam's risky encounter at the Rakadushi compound, Victoria and Eli's power dynamics, Hunter's volatile demands, and Donald's strategic moves create a web of tension, culminating in a harrowing cliffhanger as a life hangs in the balance.

The latest episode of The Oval picks up from Sam’s sticky situation. He’s looking for Jason and gets too close to the Rakadushi compound. One of the Raku soldiers threatens to shoot him but Sam disables him and gets to the nitty gritty. The soldier tells him they saw someone who looked like the president’s son but that the Highest let him leave, and then Sam demands that he start walking in a nondescript direction. We don’t know where they are going but hold that thought. 

At the White House, Victoria and Eli have a meeting. Eli tells Victoria that Simone will apologize, so there’s no need to lock her up. He also asks that she not taunt her because Simone believes his lie that he and Victoria aren’t a thing. Victoria is not going to play small here.

Next up, we have Hunter. He demands that Richard and Priscilla bring him some soup but demands that they taste it first. Richard does as he’s told, but Priscilla respectfully tells the president about himself. Hunter then asks Priscilla if she wants to have sex with him to get under Victoria and Sam’s skin and she obviously says no. Then she tells him he has no respect for his staff or his office. Hunter says no one is going to stop him. 

Donald gets Allen out of jail, to the latter’s chagrin, and questions him about where he got the drugs from. Allen goes into the story about how Alonzo intercepted them. Then Donald wants to know what the FBI wants with him and tries to get the names of the agents. Allen does a good job of keeping it cute and mute. However, Donald’s obvious motive is to use Allen as his eyes and ears in the White House since he got suspended. Allen appears to agree but later on we discover that he’s just playing a game for his safety. 

The episode winds down with Alonzo bringing Kareem to the president. Hunter demands to know who Kareem’s plug is. Kareem says it’s his cousin, but he won’t tell them his cousin’s name and that causes Hunter to go into a rage. Hunter has Alonzo point a burner at Kareem’s head and tells him to shoot. That’s where we end the episode.
