Scandal is finally back on this Thursday February 27 at 10 p.m. ET, and we're ready for all the drama it can throw at us. Fortunately, if this new sneak peek is anything to go by, Season 3, Episode 11: "Ride Sally Ride" is going to jump back into the action without pausing for breath.

In this clip from the episode, David shows James the tape of Sally basically admitting to murdering her hubby — and Cyrus helping cover it up. Uh-oh.

James, unsurprisingly, isn't so gung-ho about helping David bring Sally and Cyrus down. After all, the tape is inadmissible in court, and as James points out, he now has a sweet gig in the White House.

Of course, David says that's exactly why he needs James. "That's just it!" he declares. "You're on the inside now. You're privy to everything they say. We just need one unguarded moment, and we can nail these bastards!"

James still looks unconvinced. Check it out:

Do you think James will help David? What will David do if he doesn't? Let us know in the comments below!
