Last July, we reported that AFFRM’s Ava DuVernay had been tapped by Shonda Rhimes to direct an episode of Scandal.  Well, that time has come and the episode “Vermont is for Lovers too” airs Thursday at 10 p.m.

The award winning director posted the above photo of her and Kerry Washington on her Facebook page on Wednesday with the following caption:

I could say what’s going on here… but I’d get thrown in the B613 hole. So, just watch this Thursday! The next episode of SCANDAL is entitled “Vermont is For Lovers Too” and is directed by yours truly. Hope anyone who tunes in enjoys! Xoxo

Here is a sneak peek at the episode below featuring Eli Pope, played by Joe Morton and Mama Pope, played by Khandi Alexander:
