Peus (David Warshofsky) was seemingly defeated on the latest episode of Scandal but not before he caused a whole load of trouble.
In retaliation for Samantha (Zoe Perry) being arrested, Peus planted bombs across the country and started detonating them one-by-one. He agreed to stop the attacks once Samantha and Mellie (Bellamy Young) were back under his control.
Jake (Scott Foley) and David (Joshua Malina) both tried to break Samantha but David ruined things when Samantha recognised a tell from him that confirmed to her that she was being played.
Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) secretly hatched a plan with Eli (Joe Morton) that saw him stage a breakout. Eli helped free Samantha to gain her trust under the ruse that he was negotiating his freedom.
Jake tracked down Peus and killed him while Eli murdered Samantha.
It was also revealed that Eli had been receiving boxes from Peus that contained a brick. They were sent as threats to warn that if he stopped co-operating, the box would one day contain Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) head.
The next episode of the season is Head Games. Outgoing president Fitz starts to question his legacy. Meanwhile, Jake finally uncovers Peus’ motivation.
