Scandal Recap: Olivia Grapples with PTSD, B613 Is Exposed

Originally posted 03/12/2015 11:15PM

Scandal's Gladiators better hold on to their white hats.

Thursday night's episode was mostly a set-up for the next swooping dramatic arc: The takedown of B613 (no, really this time), and possibly your favorite characters along with it.

"You gave me those files," Attorney General David Rosen (Joshua Malina) said in the penultimate scene. "You said, 'Go get the bad guys.' "

"Rosen, we are the bad guys," Jake (Scott Foley) replied.

"Not anymore," David insisted.

But is that really true? Because for all the good the employees of Pope & Associates do, their fixing hasn't exactly followed the letter of the law.

Scandal's Courtney B. Vance Opens Up About the Show's Most Powerful Episode Yet

Scandal: Courtney B. Vance Opens Up About Ferguson, Race and the Show's Powerful Episode

Originally posted 03/07/2015 11:10AM

There was nothing scandalous about Thursday's Scandal: The drama was too raw, the plot – a young, unarmed black man being shot by police – all too familiar.

But that's what made the episode so moving, and why Twitter is already clamoring for guest-star Courtney B. Vance to win an Emmy.

Vance, 54, is known for his work in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and being the proud husband of actress Angela Bassett. He also has an upcoming role as O.J. Simpson defense attorney Johnnie Cochran in Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story

On Scandal, he played Clarence, the father of the slain teen Brandon Parker, who incited a police stand-off when he rushed the crime scene and raised a shotgun, refusing to leave his son's body until justice was served.

"Some people called me and said 'I'm still crying over it,' " he tells PEOPLE. "If nothing else, it will hopefully keep the dialogue open, which was one of the tragic things about Ferguson and other situations. Let it go to trial. Let's talk it out. When you change that process, people don't get the chance to hear it all and flesh it out.

"If that doesn't happen, then all we're left with is our anger."

Vance discusses the powerful episode, House of Cards's take on race and working with Kerry Washington below:

In its first episode since Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) escape, Scandal didn't pull any punches.

The ABC drama doesn't openly discuss race often, but when it does – from Olivia's searing "I'm feeling a little, I don't know, Sally Hemings/Thomas Jefferson about this" jab to her father's mantra that she had to be "twice as good" – it's a raw reminder that, even in Shondaland, America is far from color-blind.

Thursday night's episode handled the shooting of a young, unarmed black man – a clear statement on Ferguson's Michael Brown – with profound grace, exploring police brutality, racial identity and grassroots activism from all sides.
