The drama on ABC’s “Scandal” boils on into episode 7 when “Baby Made a Mess” airs next Thursday. It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Olivia (Kerry Washington) – and things will only get more complicated with Jake (Scott Foley) in the clutches of Rowan (Joe Morton).

According to the synopsis for episode 7 of “Scandal,” Olivia will still have a hard time coming to terms with Jake being “guilty” of killing Jerry Jr. (Dylan Minnette) and Harrison (Columbus Short). The ever-fighting gladiator will turn to Tom (Brian Letscher) for answers – but will the former B613 member be willing to tell her the truth? Rowan previously stopped Tom from talking, but it looks like the disgraced Secret Service agent might have some hope – in the form of Leo Bergen (Paul Adelstein). The synopsis teases that Leo’s “newest client causes a gut-wrenching reaction” for Olivia, making her “associates spring into action.”

Elsewhere Huck (Guillermo Díaz) will continue to “play with fire.” Last time “Scandal” viewers saw him, he was inexplicably hooked to a video game. It wasn’t until the end of episode 6 that viewers discovered that he was playing the game virtually with his son. Huck’s ex-wife and son didn’t know that he was on the opposite end – but will they find out in episode 7?

Huck won’t be the only one playing with fire. Mellie (Bellamy Young) will make a “power move” in “Baby Made A Mess,” potentially putting Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) into tight spot. But how does all of this connect to Lizzie Bear (Portia de Rossi)? Her “shocking alliance” will be revealed in episode 7.

“Scandal” Season 4 episode 7 will air on ABC on Thursday, Nov. 6, at 9 p.m. EDT.
