Scandal Season 3 is now two for two. Will Season 3 Episode 3: "Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington" keep the high intensity thrills coming? Based on this promo, it's certainly going to try its damnedest.

In a move that should be familiar to fans of Grey's Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes has brought a bomb into the mix for this coming episode. Yep, Olivia walks into a situation that has the highest stakes of them all: life or death, thanks to a suicide bomber who could blow up in a single instant. Good thing she has the President of the United State and all of the resources that go with that on her side. Somehow, we have a feeling she'll get out of this alive, but it's going to be a nail-biter of an episode.

Not enough info? Here's the official synopsis of the episode:

A Midwestern mom hires Pope & Associates under mysterious conditions that lead to a very dangerous situation. Meanwhile, Fitz and Mellie admit their true feelings for each other.
