The upcoming episode of "Scandal" titled "A Few Good Women" will see Olivia on the offensive now that she knows the truth about what really happened to Jake.
But trouble is far from over for Olivia, who will be seen working with Vice-President Susan Ross, while Quinn and Huck are left to seek answers about B613. The penultimate episode will see Olivia going against the navy as well as her father.
The official synopsis of the episode reads: "Vice President Ross continues to defy the Grant administration when she hires Olivia Pope to defend a woman in the Navy. Meanwhile, Quinn and Huck must do what they do best to get answers about B613 and Mellie's campaign for Senate continues to be a struggle."
Thursday's episode gave fans a reason to cheer as it saw the return of Jake Ballad, who was presumed dead in the previous episode. But she once again failed to take down her father, as Rowan got to the former KGB agent-turned-grandmother after Olivia's most recent failed attempt to take him down.
But towards the end of the episode, Olivia showed that she wasn't completely in the dark when she suddenly pulled a gun on Russell during a steamy make out session. She gave him two choices – either give her the details about Foxtail or bite the bullet.
It is not immediately known what Foxtail is, but some fans believe it could be Olivia's secret service code name. Or, it could involve a plan to kill the President, some speculate.
Meanwhile, while Mellie was battling perception that it was improper "to a have a member of the legislative branch share a bed with the head of the executive branch," Fitz rang up his former lover to seek her advice on what the next plan of action should be.
Olivia's advice was to play up the whole access to the President part, and it works wonders with the Virginia voters.
"Scandal" will not air a new episode next week as "Grey's Anatomy" will be airing a two-hour special. "Scandal" finale will now air on 14 May with the episode "You Can't Take Command."
