Spoiler alert! We're about to dig into the biggest, most jaw-dropping moments from Thursday night's TV. If you haven't yet watched a particular show, and don't want to be spoiled, skip to the next!

Scandal: Oh hi, Fringe's Jasika Nicole! In flashbacks, we learn that she was Huck's (Giullermo Diaz) wife...and they have a child! Of course, this is Scandal, so there can be no happiness, only heartbreak, as the people then-assassin Huck works don't like the idea of our hacker extraordinaire having a family. Yes. Huck was forced to "forget" his family, and yes, we sobbed. And don't even get us started on this line: "I think I used to have a family, but I don't remember if they're real or I imagined them." Sticking an actual knife in our gut would probably hurt less. (OK, not really.) 

Community: Score five points, Team Britta (Gillian Jacobs) and Jeff (Joel McHale)! During tonight's Freaky Friday-themed outing, we learned that the spark is completely gone in Britta and Troy's (Donald Glover) relationship. Like so gone that they forgot their one year anniversary. After Abed (Danny Pudi) and Troy body-swap, we learn that Troy wants to break up because he feels like they're "working too hard. It feels like we're just going through the motions…I just think I'm better as your friend." And then they ended their relationship with one of their signature hugs. Sniff!

Glee: Oh, we're sorry. We can't hear you over the sound of Blaine (Darren Criss) performing Sue's (Jane Lynch) "Sue90x" class at 23 Hour Fitness.


But onto the night's two big bombshells: "When I was 11, I was molested by my babysitter. She walked in on me in the shower and she touched me a bit," Ryder (Blake Jenner) reveals to the group. "It kind of messed me up a bit. I have trouble trusting girls because of it." While the guys of New Directions are total douches about it (thinking it's "cool"?!), Kitty (Becca Tobin) later reveals to Ryder that she was molested by her friend's older brother in the sixth grade. After telling her parents, no one believed her and she lost all of her friends, forcing her to switch schools. So is Kitty the one catfishing Ryder as Katie? It sure seems like it, but we're not entirely convinced...yet.

The Office: Fans of Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fisher) spent the entire episode watching their favorite couple have increasingly awkward and sarcastic interaction after their first session with a couples therapist. At one point, Pam admitted during a talking head that her heart felt "blocked up." The tears! At the end of the episode, Jim had to leave for Philadelphia, and their cold goodbye did nothing to ease our fears for Jam. Until Pam ran out to give her husband his umbrella he left behind. Jim stopped Pam from going back into the office, and just when you think he's going to tell her that this wasn't working (we honestly held our breath), he hugged her. Like, really hugged her. He actually clung to her, like he was clinging to what they used to be. And while they hugged, we got a flashback to their wedding with Jim's brother (who officiated the wedding) reciting the Corinthians verses about love. Eventually, Pam hugged him back and they kissed each other good and hard, smiling and in tears and hopeful that they'll make it out of the rough patch together. It was the first Jam moment we got in a long time that made our heart soar and not plummet to the bottom of our stomach.

Line of the Night: "Firefly did a movie to wrap things up. Buffy The Vampire Slayer continued on as a comic book. Heroes gradually lowered the quality season by season so we were grateful it ended." Oh Big Bang Theory, that was a gem!
