Things get explosive, literally, in the third episode of the third season of “Scandal”.

Olivia Pope has officially declared war on the White House, but she’s not the only one with a bone to pick with the Fitz administration. Mary Nesbit, a distressed mother of a government agent who was killed by the FBI and branded a terrorist takes Capitol Hill hostage in a bid to clear her son’s name.

Olivia is sucked into this ticking time bomb and hostage scenario as she attempts to unravel the truth of what happened to Mary’s son. But will the truth do more harm than good in this case?

Hauck, who learned in the last episode that Olivia’s father Eli is “Command,” trails Eli in hopes of striking back. But will Hauck have the nerve to pull the trigger and put Olivia’s father out of his misery?
