Scandal: Death Comes to Sally Langston's Home

Originally posted 12/10/2013 11:20AM

Sally Langston has done something very, very bad.

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."

Scandal President Fitz: Truly Terrible? A Point-Counterpoint Discussion

Fitzgerald Grant III, the commander-in-chief in the ABC primetime soap Scandal, has not had a very easy first term. His time in office has been marked by infidelity, a stolen election and one failed assassination attempt. Nearly since the day he was inaugurated, Fitz (as portrayed by Tony Goldwyn) has dreamed of giving up the presidency in order to live a normal life with his advisor/mistress Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). And yet, at every turn, he has backed down – his destiny, his duty to the American people, has been too great.

But has America actually benefitted from having Fitz in office? As Scandal approaches its midseason finale, let's examine how good of a chief executive Fitzgerald Grant III has been throughout his first term.

How TV Shows Have Hidden Stars's Pregnancies

It's the baby news heard 'round the world: Kerry Washington is expecting her first child, and while we're excited for the actress, it leaves fans of Scandal scratching their heads about what Washington's bump means for Olivia Pope.

Producer Shonda Rimes has remained mum since Washington's October announcement about whether the pregnancy will be written into the show, but should she choose not to, there's plenty of past precedent to draw from on how to handle a star's changing shape, ranging from the subtle to the downright ridiculous.

Kerry Washington: From Heartbreak to Happiness

Originally posted 11/06/2013 07:20AM

Walking into the after-party for her Saturday Night Live hosting gig in the wee hours of Nov. 3, Kerry Washington did something shocking: She grabbed the hand of her husband, former 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, and held it in public.

For the very private star, who wed in secret this past June after a three-year courtship she'd kept quiet even from friends, it may be out of character. But then again, she has a lot to be happy about at the moment: her loving marriage, her popular TV series, Scandal, and a baby on the way.

"Kerry's in it to win it, and she's winning," her friend Joe Reinstein, who worked with her during Barack Obama's two presidential campaigns, tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on stands Friday. "She deserves everything."
