ABC’s ‘Scandal’ season 3, episode 13 preview: Kerry Washington and a huge move

Take a look -Just like Lady Gaga apparently seems to live for the applause, we are seeing on “Scandal” time and time again just how much they live for the surprise. These “OMG moments” are hyped up so much in the promos for new episodes, they don’t even really give you an opportunity to let you know what’s actually going on in the story.

Case in point? The first clip below for Thursday night’s new episode “No Sun on the Horizon,” which doesn’t even bother to show you Olivia’s mom, what comes next with Mellie and Andrew, or what happens next with B6-13. All it says instead is that the last thirty seconds contain something so shocking, they will go down in the history of the show.

Now that we’ve gotten all of that out of way, let’s give you some actual scoop on the plot now courtesy of the official synopsis:

“A well prepared Fitz gets thrown a curve ball during the first presidential debate, Olivia receives shocking news and is forced to make an extremely difficult decision, and the gladiators work with a powerful CEO accused of murder. Meanwhile, one dirty little secret could lead to deadly consequences.”

Excited yet? We feel like you really should be since this has the potential to be one of the best stories that has been pulled off here in a long time. The show also needs something big and also something that introduces a little bit more clarity, especially since we’re still not sold that having B6-13 around has really been good for the show at all (even if it gives Kerry Washington good material).

What do you think is going to happen on this “Scandal” episode, and do you think that there is any way that this ending can be as “shocking” as it is being set up as?
