Scandal Season 3, Episode 17 ended on one heck of a cliffhanger, with Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) deciding not to stop the bomb he knows is going to go off, because it could kill the vice president. Damn. But will the explosion actually happen on the Season 3 finale, Season 3, Episode 18 ("The Price of Free and Fair Elections")? Well, based on the promo for the episode, the answer is yes.

The promo starts with an explosion, then cuts Liv and Fitz both looking shocked. It certainly looks like the bomb goes off. Meanwhile, we also see Liv's dad wheeled through a hospital, and Harrison with a gun to his head. This episode is going to be insane.

Want to know more? Here's what the official synopsis says:

Election Day has arrived and nothing is off limits as the candidates try to capture votes. Meanwhile, Olivia tries to understand Maya’s motives and Charlie makes a very surprising move.
