Independent filmmaker Ava DuVernay, whose film "Middle of Nowhere" captured audiences in 2012, will make her directorial debut of ABC's "Scandal" tonight. DuVernay shared her excitment with fans Thursday morning on Facebook: 

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.

Scandal will be broadcast tonight at 10 p.m.
