She’s handling it! In a sneak peek for the new episode of ‘Scandal,’ Olivia finds herself in yet another life threatening situation and, judging by her screams, she’s fearing for her life!

It’s not the first time that Olivia (Kerry Washington) has been shot at, but that doesn’t make it less terrifying. In a sneak peek for the Mar. 5 episode of Scandal, Olivia reports to the scene of a homicide in which her services are needed. However, when the victim’s father shows up with an agenda, her life is suddenly at risk. Watch the intense clip now!

‘Scandal’: Olivia Gets Shot At

Well this is certainly topical.

On the new episode of Scandal, Olivia is called to a scene in which a white cop has just killed a black teenager while he attempted to arrest him.

“What’s his name?” Olivia asks, arriving at the crime scene. The police commissioner responds, “Brandon Parker, 17,” he says. “He matched the description of a suspected shoplifter a couple blocks away, officer stops to question him, kid pulls a knife, officer shoots him–well within his rights, but now we’ve got a dead black kid put there by a white officer.”

And this is where Olivia comes in.

She’ll Handle It

As we’ve seen in the United States, this kind of incident can create massive uproars and riots. So, to nip the situation in the bud before it reaches the masses, Olivia is called in by the police commissioner to, with her signature spin, “handle it.”

While explaining to the commissioner what needs to be done, specifically removing the body from the street as soon as possible, Olivia is interrupted– by gunfire!

“Bring me the man who shot my son!” a man yells as he walks up to the scene, giant shotgun in hand.

Olivia screams and ducks for cover–and then the sneak peek ends! Ah!

What do you think of the sneak peek? Are you excited for the new episode of Scandal?
