That's what Scandal's resident smooth talker Harrison (Columbus Short) has been dealing with after having to plant information that David (Joshua Malina) had abused his former girlfriend in order to get Abby (Darby Stanchfield) to break up with him. But really, he was saving her life!
Now that OPA has discovered who Quinn Perkins is (hello, Molotov Mistress!), the Scandal gang will have to decide whether they trust her.
