Olivia denies needing it, saying she's happy to be living with him. Her father reminds her that this is temporary and after her mother gets cleared from child services, she'll go right back to her. Olivia says she understands this, and wants to spend every moment there while she can before she is taken away. As she heads for the shower, she trips over garbage all over the place and mentions that his place needs to be cleaned, but he chuckles that this is a decade worth of trash and they wouldn't even be able to make a dent. She continues to the bathroom and comments how great it is to wake up without any bruises as she happily looks at herself in the mirror.

In school, Mr. Stein stops her and hands her a letter that was delivered to the school for her from her mother. She looks at it as Chloe and Moon walk over and ask what it is. She says it pertains to her GPA and is to be given to her dad, noting that this can't be good. After class, she goes to her locker and tries to secretly open the letter, but is interrupted by Troy, who comes up and wraps his arms around her. She tries to hide the letter, but Troy sees it and reads it, revealing that it says that CPS dropped the charges against her mother due to minimal evidence and that she will be suing for full custody of Olivia. Troy reveals that the letter is from her mother's lawyer and Olivia says she's been planning this for a while, she bets. She gets very upset since she's so happy living with her father, and now her mom is going to take that away from her too. She sounds desperate as she asks how much more she is expected to take. She starts crying and Troy holds her and she vows to not let her mother win the custody case, but acknowledges that she doesn't think anyone will be able to stop her since she always wins. Troy tells her she won't win this time since Olivia has so many people on her side this time. Olivia hopes he's right, but doesn't look too convinced.

The next day, Keith approaches Olivia in class who has a videotape that she explains is her mother's lawyer's statement for court. She explains to Keith what is going on and Keith is lost as to why her mother even wants her so badly since she doesn't seem to like her. Olivia explains that her mother needs her because she does everything for her such as watching her kids and cleaning the house. Keith comes up with the idea that Olivia should let her mother know she won't be doing that stuff for her anymore if she wins the case and she should do something that would make her mother not want her anymore. Olivia ponders this idea as class starts. Olivia later is pacing the hallway alone, having memories of the awful things her mother did to her playing through her mind along with the memories of her cutting herself. She snaps and runs outside, seeing a couple of her friends around a car. She grabs the keys to the car from Angel's hands and gets in, driving off and speeding down the road towards a brick wall. She crashes into the wall and the airbag is seen deploying as her friends watch in shock.

She is seen unharmed at the police station with an irate Troy, who tells her this was not how to deal with the situation. Olivia tells him that her mother won't want back a girl who steals cars and crashes them. Troy reminds her she's going to have a criminal record and her father is going to have to pay fines for what she did, but she tells him she'll just explain it was an accident. He tells her it doesn't matter if it was an accident, since she still stole the car. Olivia apologizes, but gets very upset, explaining she was willing to do anything not to go back to her mother's house. She starts to cry and Troy holds her, telling her they'll figure it out. She tells him she'd rather be jailed living with her dad than free living with her mom. A little while later, she is sitting alone while her father and Troy are talking to the police when her mother comes up from behind her and asks if she enjoyed her joy ride. Olivia asks what she's doing there, and her mother tells her she wouldn't be a responsible mother if she didn't come check on her daughter after having a run-in with the law. Olivia tells her that she understands if she doesn't want her to come back home, but her mother sees right through her plot and tells her she won't get away that easily. Olivia asks why she wants her so badly, and her mom explains that she wants to see Olivia hurt like she is because she was fired from her job. She says she can get her job back if she wins custody and shows her boss that CPS was mistaken the whole time. Olivia tells her that she won't win, but her mom points out that her fender bender was done under her father's supervision and Olivia has never had a run-in with the law under her care. Olivia understands her mistake as her mother tells her that her plan made it easier for her to get Olivia back and tells her that she'll see her in court before leaving as Olivia cries to herself, horrified with what she did.

In Same Love, Olivia sees Eliza looking upset in the hall and asks what's wrong. When Eliza tells her that Dex is annoying, Olivia asks what he did this time, and Eliza explains that he doesn't seem excited to see her anymore like he does with other people and she had to tell him to stop talking to Scott because they were getting too close. Olivia is shocked by this and calls her a cling monster, saying that is never attractive to people. Eliza tells her she doesn't want him to leave her, and Olivia tells her he won't if Eliza stops being crazy and she can't dictate who he's friends with. Olivia tells her that guys need guy time, and Dex and Scott are like brothers so Dex is probably upset that Eliza told him to cut him off. Eliza tells her he doesn't need bro time, he needs her time and he's still not over his brother's death, so he needs her. Olivia tells her guys mourn differently and to just show him she's there for him and he'll come to her when he's ready. She tells her again not to tell him who he can be friends with and Eliza rolls her eyes as they walk off together.

Olivia motions for Eliza to join her and Alicia in class and Eliza tells them that Dex blew her off for Eric. Olivia reminds her she doesn't own him and offers for Eliza to meet her at the beach that night to hang with her while she does her community service hours from the stolen car incident. Eliza is initially hesitant, but Olivia reminds her it's better than staying home doing nothing. Eliza decides to go, but Alicia passes and Olivia tells Eliza she and Alicia are partners for the lab and to find someone else. Eliza finds Brendan and as they hit it off, Olivia watches suspiciously.

That night at the beach, Olivia is picking up trash as Eliza arrives and Olivia complains that they won't let her have electronics, so she can't listen to music and has three hours to go. Eliza jokes that this is why people don't crash other people's cars and Olivia justifies her actions by saying she thought she had to at the time. Eliza is hit in the head with a frisbee, which is revealed to be Brendan's. As they talk again, Olivia notices they want her to go, and picks up trash elsewhere. Once she notices them getting too friendly, Olivia comes over and asks Eliza to help her, causing Brendan to leave. Eliza is mad Olivia did that, but Olivia calls Eliza out for having double standards as Dex isn't allowed to talk to other girls, but Eliza is here flirting heavily with a boy. Eliza denies flirting, but Olivia tells her she wonders what else would have happened if she didn't come over since Brendan already flashed her his body. Eliza tells her she's leaving and to have fun cleaning up other people's garbage, causing Olivia to look extremely angry.


Olivia in the third season.

In Misery Business (1), Olivia is at lunch with her friends and when Keith and Scott are having a private conversation about their relationship, they are surprised when they see everyone was listening, and Olivia tells them it's what they do. As Keith plans to meet Scott's parents, he said they will fall in love with him and Olivia wishes them good luck, knowing it won't go well and gives Scott a reassuring smile as he looks nervous. She joins Scott at his locker later and asks if he's actually going to come out to his parents. Scott tells her he's not sure and is lost on what to do, so Olivia tells him Keith can't make him do it if he's not ready. Scott reminds her how ignorant they were when he tried to join pride club their freshman year, and Olivia suggests maybe they've opened their minds since then. Olivia offers to talk to Keith about it and says it's shitty of him to expect Scott to come out for him. She goes up to Keith and tells him it is a big issue for Scott to come out to his parents and he knows how homophobic they are. Keith explains he doesn't want to be someone's dirty little secret again, but Olivia asks what he would do if Scott's parents ban him from seeing Keith ever again. When Keith can't come up with an answer, she tells him he didn't think this through and doesn't care about what Scott thinks about this, as long as he gets what he wants. Keith gets mad and tells her to mind her own business for once since this is between him and Scott. He slams his locker and tells her not to test him, but Olivia isn't scared and jokes his parents might buy him a bodyguard to keep her 30 feet away. She laughs and starts to walk away, but warns him not to fuck up Scott's life, or she will fuck up his way worse.

In Misery Business (2), after learning Keith outed Scott to his parents, which resulted in Scott getting kicked out of his house, Olivia tracks down Keith at school the next morning and slams him into his locker, reminding him that she warned him not to ruin Scott's life. Keith tries to explain himself, but Olivia doesn't listen and tells him he needs to pay for what he did and won't let him off the hook for this. She tells him that she hopes one day he realizes ruining other people's lives doesn't make him feel any better about his own and leaves, still furious.

In I Write Sins Not Tragedies, Olivia looks mad and Angel walks up to her, asking what's wrong. Olivia points out Keith, who is talking and laughing with a group of people and is aggravated that Keith had no repercussions for what he did to Scott, and is just as popular. Olivia says he's going to make him pay and says she warned him she would get revenge if he did anything to Scott, and she keeps her promises. Angels warns her maybe not to fight fire with fire, but Olivia is determined. She later finds Angel before class and tells her she has the perfect plan and reveals she made a fake profile on a gay dating app and has been talking to Keith all morning on it and has him obsessed with this fake guy. Angel asks if she's going to get a nude from him and spread it across the school, but Olivia instead wants to continue to talk to him until he is in love with this fake man and then break his heart, just like he did to Scott. Angel refuses to participate, as she thinks it will make them just as bad as Keith, and Olivia gets annoyed, saying she's just sticking up for her friend, but says she will just do it on her own and leaves, annoyed.

Later, however, Angel overhears Keith lying about what happened to Kat and tells Olivia she's in on the plan after all. Olivia explains to her where she is in her plan, and Angel sounds slightly worried, but Olivia tells her it will be okay. After logging into the fake account, Angel decides to delete it and Olivia confronts her about this the next day. Angel explains this is Scott's fight to fight, not theirs. She explains that Scott is over it and doesn't want revenge, so they need to do the same. Angel then pushes for Olivia to talk to Scott about this instead of just planning revenge for him, and Olivia understands, going and talking to Scott.


Olivia looking proper before the trial.

In Almost Is Never Enough, Olivia is standing in front of her father's fireplace going over her testimony for the upcoming custody trial with Troy. Olivia grows frustrated and says it doesn't matter, since her mother will win no matter what. Troy tells her that with that attitude she will, and reminds her the evidence they have against her, which Olivia reminds him is just pay stubs. Troy is confident that if they prove her mother is never home anyways, that the court will leave her with her father. Olivia instead just wants to tell the courts she's an abusive bitch, but Troy tells her they have no evidence of that and her mother will have retorts ready to go if she brings that up. Olivia is upset since her word has to count for something, but Troy tells her it doesn't in court since they will believe a 35 year old business woman over a 16 year old any day. Olivia looks defeated and rests her head on Troy's shoulders, saying she should enjoy the time here while she can since she's about to be headed back to hell. He tells her to stay strong and they can win this and kisses her head, but she looks like she doesn't believe him.

At the courthouse the next day, she is sitting looking very fancy with Troy, Ethan, and Brittany by her side. She exclaims that she is so nervous, she can barely breathe and might pass out on the stand. Ethan tells her to calm down and that it'll be okay, but she tells him she can't calm down since this is the most important day of her life. Brittany tells her she can get through anything and asks why Scott and Eliza aren't there for her today. She tells them they're up to their own stuff nowadays, looking glum. Her dad walks over and says they're ready to start, and Olivia reflects on how after this trial, her life will either be amazing or complete shit. As everyone enters the courtroom, Olivia is pulled back by her mother who says it's good to see her. Olivia says they both know that's not true and asks what she wants. She asks Olivia what she wants for dinner later in the week since after the piece of evidence she got against her father, there's no way she'll lose the case. Olivia calls her bluff, and her mother asks if she's ever bluffed in her entire life and walks into the courtroom, leaving Olivia scared. Her father comes and asks what that was about and Olivia lets him know she has something against him and asks what it is, since she doesn't want to be shocked later. Her father has no idea what it could be and walk into the court room, with Olivia extremely nervous.

As the case begins, her lawyer sees she is very visibly shaken and pats her shoulder, telling her everything will be fine. She fills him in on what her mother said, but he says she's bluffing and he won't let her win. Olivia points out it's hard to trust a lawyer she found on craigslist, and he agrees, but then reminds her not to bring up the abuse. She tells him without it, they don't have much of a case, and he tells her to trust him and he has a plan. At the end of the first day, they are all leaving and Olivia is surprised her mother didn't bring up anything against her father and was bluffing. Her lawyer tells her not to forget there's a whole extra day and she could bring it up then. As the lawyer leaves and her friends offer their support, Olivia thinks she's waiting to play her cards until the next day. Her father tells her there's nothing for her to have against him, and Olivia doesn't quite believe him as they all go out for dinner.

The next day, everyone returns to the courtroom and Olivia's mom takes the stand, scaring Olivia. She says she has evidence that will show Neil Jerl is not fit to have custody of his daughter and plays a video of him at a party smoking weed and his friends telling him to let his wife have his daughter, which he says is a tempting offer if it lets him smoke more. Olivia has tears well in her eye as her father looks horrified. Olivia's father tells their lawyer to do something, so he asks for Olivia to take the stand, but before she can, she starts sobbing in response to the video and storms out of the courtroom. Troy follows her out and says it isn't over yet, but Olivia disagrees and says she's tired of fighting and doesn't have anything left in her. He holds her as she continues to cry over the video.

They all return to the courtroom and Olivia's friends hold her hands as the judge gives his verdict, which is custody to her mother with limited visitation from her father. Olivia immediately loses her cool and shouts about her mother's abuse, running up to the judge, but he calls the case closed and leaves as Olivia breaks down completely, her mother calling her foolish as she does so. Her father tries to comfort her, but Olivia tells him that she thought she had one parent who cared about her, but he cares more about weed. He tries to hold her, but she pushes him off and Troy and Ethan keep him away from her, telling him to get out. Her lawyer apologizes to her and she says she has two more years living in complete hell. Brittany mentions there has to be something they can do, but Olivia says she's tried everything and nobody cares about her, not the court or her parents. Troy reminds her that they all do and they all surround her in a group hug.

Troy is later dropping Olivia off at her mother's house, and she says she doesn't want to go in. Troy reminds her that in two years, the two of them can get out of here together, which she says is 730 long days. He hands her his necklace so that he can be with her and she tells him that she loves him. She kisses him and then sadly goes inside, where her mother said she assumed she was gonna kill herself. Olivia says that she unfortunately didn't and goes out with friends, leaving Olivia to watch her siblings. As her mother is leaving, she turns back around and slaps Olivia so hard, it echoes throughout the room and tells her it was for making her look like a fool in the courthouse. Olivia drops to her knees as her mother leaves and keeps repeating that she can't do it as she cries and the babies both start to cry as well.

Season 4 Edit


Olivia in the fourth season.

In Know Your Enemy, Eliza bumps into Olivia after hurriedly leaving the chem lab and in doing so, knocks Olivia's books out of her hand. Olivia is initially annoyed, and tells her to watch out, but softens up and hugs Eliza after she apologizes. Eliza asks how her break was, and Olivia informs her that she was at her mother's house every single day. She changes the subject and asks why Eliza was leaving the chem lab so quick, wondering if she was making out with her side bae. Eliza tells her she was just getting homework she missed, and Olivia asks how things are with her and Brendan and if they are still a thing. Eliza doesn't give her any details and Olivia guilts her by saying she thought they told each other everything, but sees now Eliza has a perfect boyfriend and an asshole she neglects him for. Eliza tells her she's not neglecting Dex and to calm the shade. Olivia points out she's definitely betraying Dex, which upsets Eliza, who explains she doesn't tell Olivia things anymore because she always judges her. Olivia tells her what she's doing is selfish and dumb and she should break up with Dex or end things with Brendan. Eliza tells her she loves Dex, but he's been different since his brother died and she hates having to fight for his attention with Scott. Olivia tells her to dump him, asking if she even has feelings anymore. Eliza says she does and can't live without him, and Olivia tells her it's not fair she's stringing Dex along while finding passion with Brendan. Eliza says they've only banged four times and Olivia tells her it's wrong, but that she won't tell anybody. Olivia then notices Dex and Brendan laughing and talking together and beams, finding it hilarious that Eliza's boyfriend and side piece are becoming friends. She calls it karma and laughs to herself as she leaves Eliza panicked.

In Ain't It Fun, she is walking into school with Troy, Ethan, and Candace, who brings up they should double date. Olivia explains she's not allowed out much, which Candace says is dumb. Ethan leaves with Candace, knowing Olivia doesn't want to explain her situation again. Troy mentions how unfair it is that Olivia can't do anything at her mom's, especially now since she's there every day. She tells him she's just going to lock herself in her room all summer. Troy notices a bruise on her arm and asks if her mother is hurting her again, which Olivia says was inevitable. She tells him to drop it since school is the only place she can get away from her and doesn't want to talk about her here too. Troy offers to try to help, but she tells him there's nothing he can do and to drop it, leaving very frustrated.

In class, Moon is catching Olivia up on Scott's new homelessness, which she finds very sad. Moon asks if they even talk anymore, and Olivia explains that Scott has more popular friends now, and she doesn't have time to hang out with people anymore, so they drifted apart, but she still cares for him. Their teacher comes over and gives Olivia a pass to go home early, signed by her father. She finds him in the office and he tells her he has to talk to her about something important that may get her out of her mother's house. She excitedly leaves the school with him. They go to a restaurant where Olivia hopes this is good since she knows how mad her mother will be if she finds out she left with her dad. Her dad then tells her he doesn't think her mother is actually her mother. Olivia is very confused and he explains that she knows that he and her mother had a one-night stand which ended up with her mother pregnant, which is why they married. He then explains that they lied to her, and he didn't know she was pregnant until Olivia was already born. He explains that he thinks her mother took her from one of her friends who couldn't care for her and then called him and told him it was his so he would help her raise it. He says he doesn't have proof, just a lot of suspicions he plans on trying to get evidence for. Olivia realizes it makes sense why her mother would hate her so much more than her other children, since she's not really her's and decides to look for evidence on her own.

At home later that day, she is on the phone with Troy and looking for pictures of her as a newborn, which she can't find, gaining hope that maybe her father's conspiracy is true. She tells Troy it'll be bittersweet if it's true, since it will mean her father isn't her father, and social services will take her away from them both and she could get adopted by anybody. Troy tells her at least she won't be abused and Olivia is lost on what to do, so Troy tells her to meet him and Ethan at the Hub since her mother won't be home for a little while longer. She tells him she's watching her sister, and he tells her to bring her. As she enters the Hub, Scott is angrily leaving and bumps into her and her sister. She asks him if he's okay and he angrily tells her he's perfect before storming off, confusing Olivia. Troy informs her she almost missed a fight between Scott and Keith, and she says she doesn't want to hear about it and Keith deserves to be castrated. Olivia sits down with her sister and Ethan tells her Troy filled him in and her situation is crazy. Olivia discusses how things could get way better or way worse if it turns out to be true and is scared of getting adopted and leaving Florida and all her friends. She says she's not going to social services since they didn't do anything for her last time, so she's going straight to a lawyer and plans to have her father sue her mother. Troy tells her that her father is a bit of a coward and might not do it, but she tells him that he came to her with this for a reason and is ready to fight. Her sister then starts to cry and Olivia tries to comfort her as Troy and Ethan seem unconvinced her plan will work.


Olivia confronting her mother.

She returns home and sees her mother standing there, becoming horrified as she knows she is pissed. Her mother screams at her, asking where she was and not believing she just went to get food. She asks why her photo albums are everywhere and when Olivia doesn't answer, she slaps her. Olivia tells her that she knows she's not actually her daughter, and her mother denies it being true. Olivia tells her she couldn't find any pictures of her as a newborn and her mother leaves and comes back with an older photo album, which contains these photos. Olivia is shocked and saddened and her mother calls her stupid and when Olivia gives her sass, she pushes Olivia down the stairs, hurting her badly.

Olivia gets very annoyed with the amount of drama going on and holds Eliza back as she gets extremely furious. After Dex breaks up with Eliza and him and Scott storm off, Olivia tells Eliza it was very low for her to tell Dex about Scott.

In Bed of Lies, Eliza pulls Olivia aside in the hall and asks when everyone started to hate her. Olivia tells her it was since she became a mega bitch. Eliza asks since when she was a mega bitch and Olivia explains she cheated on her boyfriend, was awful Scott, and has treated her friends badly. Eliza admits to doing that stuff, but says she's still the same Eliza. Olivia tells her the Eliza she knows wouldn't have abused her boyfriend or cheated. She then tells Eliza people have reason to turn this against her when she can't believe she's being perceived this way. She then tells her to try and fix things. She later sees Eliza crying while with Troy and asks her if everything is okay. Eliza tells her a new problem has arose and Olivia shoos Troy away so they can talk. Eliza reveals to Olivia that she thinks she's pregnant and after Eliza lists off the symptoms she has, Olivia tells her not to freak out since she might not be. Eliza then reveals she is also late on her period, but Olivia is still confident she's not pregnant.
