Why We So Aren't Buying That

In case you somehow missed all the tears and tweets last night, Scandal broke our hearts into millions of tiny little pieces. How? By killing one of our favorite characters.
At the very end of the episode, Olivia's seemingly random hookup buddy Russell turned out to be one of Papa Pope's henchman and attacked Jake at the OPA offices, stabbing him. Multiple times. In a promo for next week, Jake was declared "dead." We're still in the first stage of denial, BUT we're now convinced that Jake Ballard isn't really dead on Scandal, and that Scott Foley is still very much on the ABC hit drama.
