Cyrus has found himself a new presidential hopeful on SCANDAL. As both Mellie and Susan run for the Republican nomination, Cyrus has attached himself to Democrat Vargas and has manipulated Vargas’ life to ensure that he will throw his hat into the election and hire Cyrus to run his campaign.
But apparently all of this hasn’t exactly been under the radar. At least not where Abby is concerned. She confronts Cyrus in a sneak peek from this week’s SCANDAL and tells him that she’s been monitoring his calls and his travel and knows that he’s been spending an inordinate amount of time with Vargas. Instead of confessing his plan (because why would anyone ever tell the truth on SCANDAL?) Cyrus immediately goes on the defensive, accusing Abby of spying on him and threatening her job.
Elsewhere in the episode, Mellie and Susan both feel pressure as their respective campaigns heat up and Olivia continues to spy on the newly-engaged Jake while her employees are left to fend for themselves.
ABC also warns that “a blast from the past surprises everyone”. Based on the clip below and the discussion of the return of Hollis Doyle, could he be the “blast from the past”?
