The life of Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) hung in the balance at the end of the latest episode of Scandal after he was brutally attacked by Russell (Brian White).
It turns out Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) new buddy isn’t all he seems and he’s been using her. He attacked Jake at the OPA offices and it looks like it’s going to be a close call as to whether Jake lives or dies.
Elsewhere in the episode Rowan (Joe Morton) gave Olivia 48 hours to drop the case against B613, Marcus Walker (Cornelius Smith Jr.) returned for Olivia’s help when he was framed for murdering the Mayor’s wife, and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) struggled to a get the Brandon Bill passed when Vice President Susan Ross (Artemis Pebdani) picked holes in it.
The next episode of the season is First Lady Sings the Blues. Mellie (Bellamy Young) fears her career is over, while the team trying to take down B613 take drastic measures.
