There ain't no winter finale like a Scandal winter finale because a Scandal winter finale won't stop.

So (essentially) teases the following promo for Scandal Season 4 Episode 9, which will be titled "Where the Sun Don't Shine" and which will feature Olivia making one simple request:

I take the kill shot.

Olivia, Jake and Fitz, of course, failed to take down Rowan this week on Scandal Season 4 Episode 8, but might Papa Pope finally meet his demise next Thursday evening?

Most. Awkward. Threesome. EVER.

On Scandal Season 4 Episode 8, Liv, Fitz and Jake teamed up to take down Command... but read those three names again. Do you really think they were able to work together in a coherent and efficient manner?

It seemed simple enough to gather evidence again Rowan and to bring him into custody, but Fitz and Jake spent most of the hour going at each other instead.

That is, until Olivia offered herself up as the "shiny object," as the "scandal" that would lure in her dastardly dad.

All was going according to plan at the father-daughter dinner… until Rowan went into monologue mode. He made it clear he knew all about Liv’s plan to trap him, but his men were taking out her men off one by one outside the restaurant.

Rowan was so prepared that even the top-secret files David Rosen was asked to obtain turned out to be blank. Darn you, Rowan!

Rihanna is known for being scandalous on Instagram.

Case in point: this Rihanna topless photo. Or maybe this Rihanna topless photo. Or maybe... you get the idea, Rihanna is often topless.

But the superstar got all Scandalous on Instagram this week during a visit to The White House, making multiple references to the Kerry Washington-anchored hit on ABC via a couple pictures and captions.

  • Rihanna on the Phone
  • President Rihanna?!?

"'CYRUS!!! LET ME IN!!' #DayAtTheWhiteHouse,” Rihanna wrote along with one picture of her on the phone, while adding “Fitz, darling…” as a message that accompanied another.

And if you don't understand those references, we feel terrible for you. Go watch Scandal online and rectify the situation.

No hard feelings, Jake?

Fitz knows that he framed you for murder and had you tortured and only really let up after your girlfriend said she may get back together with him someday... but hey! He did free you at the end of Scandal Season 4 Episode 7, didn't he?

Next Thursday night, this dangerous/unexpected/awkward alliance will finally team up to take down Rowan Pope.

But will they even stand a chance?

What else can fans look forward to on Scandal Season 4 Episode 8?

So... is there really hope for Olivia and Fitz?

That's what the President wanted to know on Scandal Season 4 Episode 7, following his on-again/off-again lover's vow to close last Thursday's installment.

Before Liv could talk about their future, however, she wants to make sure Jake was being well cared for. She also set up an off-the-books visit with a superman inmate named Tom.

He walks the company line about Jake giving the kill order, however.

But there’s (painful) hope in this context: After a guard shivs Tom, he finally gives up Rowan as the actual puppet master, although the attack was orchestrated by Olivia and Quinn. Dastardly! And: Effective!

Olivia Pope is many things.

A Gladiator. A fixer. A fashionable D.C. power player who loves to drink red wine.

But the Emmy nominee behind this beloved character on Scandal wants to make one thing clear: Olivia os NOT a role model.

Gorgeous Kerry Washington Pic

"It’s always funny when people say like, ‘Oh, I love Olivia Pope. I just want to be like Olivia Pope,’” said Washington on The View yesterday. “I always say, ‘Well, that’s okay... if you mean everything except sleeping with married men and just drinking wine and eating popcorn.

"'If you want to dress like her, you want to talk like her, all that is fine.'"

Olivia Pope has it pretty rough.

In order to save the life of one lover (Jake) on Scandal Season 4 Episode 6, our favorite fixer told another (Fitz) that there's still "hope" the two of them could have a future.

What will this mean for Olivia going forward? Many late-night phone calls at the very least, based on the following ABC teaser for Scandal Season 4 Episode 7:

Elsewhere on “Baby Made a Mess,” Olivia will set her sights on Tom in order to gain more intel about Jake, while Leo Bergen’s new client will prompt the Gladiators to spring into action.

Olivia Pope fought for the innocence of two accused killers on Scandal Season 4 Episode 6.

We kicked off the hour by learning that the 40th President of the United States was not Ronald Reagan, but rather someone named Cooper who just died of a stroke.

Mellie passes along this news to Fitz, as we see that she’s looking like her old self and preparing to meet Cooper's widow, Bitsy.

Olivia, meanwhile, meets with the man accused of trying to murder Cooper three decades ago. With him now gone, could the bullet in his skull exonerate Leonard Francis Carnahan?

This storyline ends up turning on Olivia because the extracted bullet actually proves that Carnahan DID shoot Cooper and with the stroke tangentially related to the shooting, he can now brag about it.

"Thank you for making my life meaningful," the messed up man tells Olivia.

Last night on Scandal, Jake's whereabouts were revealed, as well as his reasons for being where he is, and certain characters' motives for him being there.

Meanwhile, Catherine's case continued to consume the team's time, while Huck kept watch over his family and Fitz and Mellie had a revealing moment.

We won't spoil any more here, but it was intense.

Looking ahead to the next #TGIT event, check out the promo below for Scandal Season 4 Episode 6 and see what the coming installment has in store:

Spoiler alert: There's a lot going on this week too!

In the episode, titled "An Innocent Man," Olivia is contacted by a convicted assassin who claims he was wrongly accused ... but is he telling the truth?

Mellie Grant, meanwhile, becomes intrigued by a former First Lady whose stories from her time as FLOTUS sound strikingly similar to her own experiences.

Finally, Elizabeth inches closer to corrupting the White House and with the stakes rising by the minute, President Fitzgerald makes a truly shocking move.

What do you think will go down?

Titled “The Key,” Scandal Season 4 Episode 5 honed in on a number of pressing issues, not the least of which was the team’s investigation of Jake.

Jake stopped returning Olivia's calls, however, making it hard for her to focus. The Fitz is frustrated that they don't have a confession from him yet.

Olivia's dad, meanwhile, offers no clue that he ordered Jake's disappearance.

Olivia's instincts are on point, however, to the surprise of no one.

Jake is under interrogation the Pentagon, and when Fitz arrives to personally confront him and demand a full confession, he insists he did not kill Fitz's son.

The President's jealous is the reason he's there, Jake believes.

Cyrus, meanwhile, tells Olivia about the evidence he has linking Jake to the murder of Fitz's son, Harrison and Cyrus' husband. Does it hold water, though?
