Scandal Season 3, Episode 9 is called "YOLO," which is, in and of itself, awesome. But not nearly as awesome as the fact that Olivia's mom has found her. This promo promises that next episode, which is also the first part of the two-episode midseason finale, will blow our minds, but they're pretty much already blown.

So, what does the promo show? Well, Olivia is understandably freaked by finding her "dead" mother alive and not-so-well, and it's made even worse by the fact that obviously special ops are all over trying to get Mama Pope back. Meanwhile, there's also a Jake vs. Fitz scene, Huck has a torture device in his hand (will he use it on Quinn?! It looks like it...), and there is a huge explosion! Good times.

Here's what the official synopsis has to say about the episode:

As the team gets closer to the truth, loyalties are tested and relationships are pushed to the limit. Meanwhile, Cyrus has to deal with his own crisis and he realizes that he may have gone too far.
