Scandal Sneak Peek: How Much Is War Worth to Olivia's Captor? (VIDEO)

What really is the cost of war?

For Olivia Pope's kidnapper on Scandal, international conflict comes pretty cheap: $1.

That's how much Ian (Jason Butler Harner) bets Liv (Kerry Washington) when she flatly tells him the plan to force President "Fitz" Grant's hand is a nonstarter: "It's not going to work, using me as bait. He won't do it. He won't go to war. The President doesn't negotiate with terrorists."

Of course, Liv was singing a different song to Ian last week when she thought he was a fellow hostage.

Scandal Recap: Olivia Pope Is a Hostage

Originally posted 01/30/2015 12:00AM

Murder and torture are mainstays on Scandal. But it's still the kind of steamy drama you watch curled up on your couch with a glass of red wine in one hand and your phone teed up with sassy tweets about Scott Foley's abs in the other.

Not this week. From the How to Get Away with Murder-like time jumps (we see you, Shonda) to the Homeland-style setting, this wasn't the Scandal we've grown to love. It was something new, something darker and far more sinister than Pope & Associates has ever tried to fix.

Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), the woman who wears the white hat and leads her gladiators into battle – arguably one of the most powerful people in Washington – lost control.
