'Scandal': Fitz's Father Forced Himself On Mellie Years Ago, May Have Fathered Her Oldest Child

"Scandal" was in rare form tonight, blowing our minds over and over again. First, we were horrified to find out the secret past between Mellie and Fitz's father. In an incredibly uncomfortable scene, Jerry was seen making advances on Mellie. When she rebuffed those advances, he didn't stop. Instead, he ripped her clothes and forced himself on her.

Even more shocking, it was hinted that Fitz might not actually be the father of the couple's first child. And then there was the bombshell about Olivia's mother. She's not dead after all. Olivia's father has been keeping her prisoner for 20 years.

Hollywood Life's Andy Swift called the rape scene the second-most disturbing scene ever -- placing it behind Huck getting water-boarded. Further, he said his mind was blown to pieces by the news about Mama Pope. E! Online's Tierney Bricker was overwhelmed, too, needing time to recover from all the bombshells.

"Scandal" airs every Thursday at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
