In the nearly minute-and-a-half clip, Abby storms through the halls of the White House, racing to stop Fitz and Mellie's interview, which is supposed to assure the country that their marriage is amazing and Olivia is just a dear friend. But Olivia had just announced to the media and the world that she is, in fact, Fitz's mistress.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like she gets there in time, as Fitz can be seen telling the reporter, "Our marriage is stronger than ever, but we're human. It's hard when they attack our friends."

And Mellie says the rumors "have no basis in the truth."

Even though Fitz, Mellie and Olivia will now have to deal with all their lies on top of the infidelity, Abby might actually have it worse.

The only thing that might save Abby at this point is Olivia's loyalty to her, which might mean that Abby could keep her job. And, if not, she can always become a gladiator again, and that wouldn't be a terrible thing. It's been a long time since we've seen the gang back together.

Check out the sneak peek below.

Do you think this is the end of Abby at the White House?
