The question of Thursday’s episode of Scandal is also its title: “Where’s the Black Lady?”

The answer, as revealed in the sneak peek below, is that she’s still being held captive by the man (Jason Butler Harner) who appears to have been hired by Vice President Andrew Nichols (Jon Tenney), who threatened Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) to go to war in the winter finale. Will POTUS sacrifice the safety of America for his mistress? 

Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
