Things are getting craaaazy on ABC's political fixer drama, Scandal.

During last week's penultimate episode of the season, cub reporter Gideon (Brendan Hines) cracked the case, connecting the vice president's chief of staff Billy (Matt Letscher) to Amanda Tanner and could ultimately pay for his discovery with his life after he's brutally stabbed with a pair of scissors.

In addition, the big flashback episode gave Billy a motive for sending Cyrus (Jeff Perry) the sex tape of Fitz with a mysterious woman (who viewers learned was really Olivia!): Billy really wanted the morally upstanding candidate, Sally (Kate Burton) to come out on top during the primaries. Unfortunately, his smoking gun proved too little, too late as Sally had already accepted Fitz's vice presidential offer.
