12717409_1251552904874489_7475168448046038038_nScandal season 5, episode 11 airs tonight on ABC.

Abby and Cyrus clash over a profile piece on Fitz. Meanwhile, Mellie wants Olivia’s help, but she doesn’t realize what that encompasses; and Liz tries to persuade Susan Ross to become a presidential candidate.

Everyone has a secret, and Olivia Pope has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite and keeping those secrets under wraps. Revered and feared at the same time, Olivia, a former communications director to the president of the United States, left the White House to open her own prominent crisis management firm. She is hoping to start a new chapter in her life — both professionally and personally — but she can’t seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly, it becomes apparent that her dysfunctional staff, who specializes in fixing other people’s lives, can’t quite fix the ones closest at hand — their own.

Scandal season 5, episode 11 airs Feb. 18 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
