As we saw in last week’s episode of Scandal, the president has been shot!

But in this week’s episode — in addition to seeing the fallout from the assassination attempt — we also get a glimpse of slightly better times thanks to a series of flashbacks.

In the one you can watch exclusively below, which takes place in the very early days of Fitz’s presidency, Olivia and Fitz are as star-crossed as ever and engaged in a very heated discussion about their interactions. “My whole life is you. I can’t breathe because I’m waiting for you. You own me, you control me, I belong to you…” she says.

How does he react? Watch below to find out and for more scoop on tomorrow’s episode, click over to Spoiler Room. And make sure to come back tomorrow for another installment of our Behind the Scenes videos with cast member Josh Malina.
