Victoria had a whiff of the affair of Hunter before the finale. She gives Ellie a handful of words and a smack, not knowing she wasn’t the one. Hunter (the president) whose last mistress’s dead body had to be taken out explains that the panties Victoria found belonged to Denise. Ellie was not the one he was sleeping with, yet!

Ellie’s former boss Diane is angry, and she scheduled a press conference of her self to expose the scandal involving Hunter and Ellie’s affair. The event of the Press conference was pretty grim in itself. Diane without any regards for her life made many vulgar comments about Ellie and told the entire press – “so if I happen to die for some strange reason, investigate this a–hole and his entire administration” referring to Hunter.

Kyle, on the other hand, tries to show Victoria how the mattress on which Denise passed was destroyed. Paranoid as she is, Victoria suspects Kyle of trying to get in bed with the president. Kyle does not seem to have any such intention, but what does Victoria care about that. She won’t stop her vile comments. The exchange did not end on a friendly note.

Remember the daughter of Barry who got taken away by a religious cult. Barry is going to confront them. He meets Ruth, and she explains that their daughter is with “The Highest.” Because she refuses to tell Barry anything more, he throws her in the back of his car and drives off. 

In the end, every character shows their true nature and their animal instincts. The two-part finale ends with some Richard and Nancy drama regarding Picky’s real father’s identity. Richard comes into his own animal behavior. This finale was pretty darn negative. There is a chance for a season 2 because the stories doesn’t seem to be entirely over yet, but you never know what happens in this TV world. The Oval is not a great show, but it’s an entertaining show.
