The White House went into lockdown on the latest episode of Scandal as Olivia (Kerry Washington) assembled everyone to try and defeat Peus.
Samantha (Zoe Perry) was held in a secure room with Abby (Darby Stanchfield) after a drone was flown over the White House. It was all a ploy by Olivia to buy time after Peus (David Warshofsky) tried to force Jake (Scott Foley) off Mellie’s (Bellamy Young) ticket so he could step in.
As the team quickly tried to think of a solution, Mellie defied Peus by announcing Luna Vargas (Tessie Santiago) as her V.P.
Once the situation with the drone was ‘resolved’, Samantha was arrested and taken prisoner in the White House.
The next episode of the season is The Box. As the future of the country hangs on the balance, Olivia and Fitz are at odds with Rowan, and Jake employs surprising tactics to manipulate the Mystery Woman.
