Bless you, Shonda Rhimes. The Feb. 19 episode of Scandal was everything and more. Olivia (Kerry Washington) was finally rescued, a fan-favorite character made a shocking return and Abby (Darby Stanchfield) proved that once a Gladiator, always a Gladiator.
The episode picked up right where we left off — Olivia being handed over to the Iranians. Since Olivia could speak Farsi, she told her kidnappers that the buyers were going to kill them. Being the crafty Olivia Pope that she is, she told the same thing to the buyers.
