"Scandal" season 5, episode 4 "Dog-Whistle Politics." ABC

Tonight is an all-new episode of "Scandal" on ABC and the secret is out! In last weeks episode "Paris is Burning" the world learned that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is indeed Fitz's (Tony Goldwyn) mistress, but right now everyone believes Ms. Pope to be the pursuer and she's being described as a woman of ill repute who targets high profile men for her own personal pleasure.

The fallout continues on episode four, "Dog-Whistle Politics," as Olivia deals with the world's scrutiny all alone in her apartment while her gladiators attempts to handle things for her. In a sneak peek clip we know Liv and Fitz have a heartfelt chat on the phone before Olivia realizes someone is photographing her from afar. We also see Fitz get physically upset that he can't help Olivia before blowing up at Abby (Darby Stanchfield) and firing her on the spot.

The synopsis for "Dog-Whistle Politics" reads: "Eager to get answers, Jake unexpectedly crosses paths with someone he thought he'd never see again. Meanwhile, Huck and Quinn recruit a familiar face to help smooth over the media storm surrounding Olivia, and Fitz quickly finds out the true cost of mercy when he discovers not everyone fully supports his actions."
