As Scandal heads into a politically-charged season finale, one looming question remains: Can Olivia save Jake?

Under the thumb of Rowan (Joe Morton), Jake (Scott Foley) was poised to become the next vice president of the United States — until Edison (Norm Lewis) purposefully tanked his campaign. But that also gave Jake an opportunity to get a message to Olivia (Kerry Washington) through Edison: He wants out. Can Olivia save him from the clutches of her evil father? The real question: Does she want to?

Check out an exclusive sneak peek from Thursday’s finale, which airs at 9 p.m. ET on ABC, above.
