So it would seem from this sneak peek of Thursday's Scandal on ABC, shared with PEOPLE exclusively.
Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) arrives at the vice president's residence, flanked by Secret Service, only to find a grim scene inside – a bloodied, dead body on the floor and Langston (Kate Burton) mumbling about devils and hell.
"What are we to do, Cyrus? What are we to do?" she whispers, her own face caked in blood. "We had a fight. The devil came in. ... I did this."
Will this be a case for fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington)?
Find out the rest of what she's done Thursday (10 p.m. ET) on ABC.
