Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) receives a phone call from Tom Larsen (Brian Letscher) in Scandal‘s third episode of season 6, “Fates Worse Than Death.” Last season, Cyrus and Tom were in a brief relationship. Cyrus eventually decides to get back with Micheal, ending his relationship with Tom. Cyrus has moved on but Tom’s holding a grudge.
Tom calls Cyrus and threatens to expose him. Tom feels used and tells Cyrus he will take everything away by telling on him. In a flashback scene, we see Cyrus and Tom at a restaurant. Tom tells Cyrus that he abandoned him. They discuss Jennifer Fields, a videographer that joined Frankie’s campaign. Cyrus doesn’t like her so Tom offers to take care of her.

Um. It’s ALWAYS horrifying when an ex calls you out of the blue. But when your ex is Tom Larsen?…You better run for the hills. #Scandal
