    ABC has started releasing clips and photos from the spring premiere, titled "Ride, Sally, Ride," and since Gladiators are thirstier than Olivia after an all-night jam-making session with Fitz, here's a breakdown of the brand new teaser (above), frame-by-fantastic-frame.

    Of course, it starts off with a punch to the heart.

    But it looks like Fitz could lose a lot more if James has anything to do with it.

    So Mellie decides to ruin Olivia's day too.

    Meanwhile, Jake smolders.

    Harrison's got a gun.

    And the rest of our Gladiators get quick flash cuts, before the big denouement.

    Rowan. Throws. Down. The. Gauntlet.

    And let's just take a second and really focus on the fear in Olivia's eyes.

    Then comes the best news of all!

    And check out some new stills of "Ride, Sally, Ride" below.

    The episode, which airs on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 10 p.m. on ABC, revolves around The White House grappling with a bombshell announcement from Sally Langston.

    Anyone else so excited they could piddle?
