[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's midseason finale of Scandal. Read at your own risk!]

Huck is... innocent!

It turns out, Scandal 's gladiator in a red hoodie was framed by his girlfriend Becky (Susan Pourfar), who lured him to the hotel under the guise of having a substance-abuse relapse. When he arrived, the gun fired by remote control, leaving him to take the fall for attempting to assassinate President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn ).

Exclusive Scandal Postmortem: Fitz's shooter speaks out!

But why was Huck (Guillermo Diaz ) targeted for this setup? Sure, he's an ex-CIA member who was left out in the cold by America — a perfect motive for wanting to kill the President. But there has to be another reason he in particular was chosen as the patsy. We at TVGuide.com have been wracking our brains to figure out why our favorite gladiator was set up. Here are our three best theories:

1. Billy and/or Sally did it: Sure, Huck enlisted Charlie (George Newbern ) to kill Billy (Matt Letscher ) in the Season 1 finale, but what if Charlie didn't go through with it? As her former Chief of Staff, Billy would still be desperate to help Sally Langston (Kate Burton ) get the presidency, so much so that he would enlist Charlie to assassinate Fitz — either with or without her knowledge. But Charlie decides to get back at Huck for torturing him by recruiting Becky to seduce him and frame him for the President's assassination — effectively getting revenge on an emotional level and, with Huck being brought into custody under the Patriot Act, likely on a physical level, too.

2. Hollis did it: Angry that Olivia (Kerry Washington ) and Verna (Debra Mooney ) saved Quinn (Katie Lowes ) from taking the fall for the Cytron explosion, Hollis (Gregg Henry ) decides to clean up loose ends and retaliate by setting Huck up to murder Fitz. That would also facilitate putting a president that will actually do his bidding in the Oval Office.

Is speed the new suspense on TV?

3. Mellie did it: The First Lady (Bellamy Young ) was awfully worried about going into Fitz's birthday party, desperately trying to keep him in the limo before he was shot. What if she — not foreseeing that Sally would pull a coup and take over the White House — hoped that even injuring her husband would give her a chance to prove her political worth during America's time of need? And selecting a female assassin to plan the whole thing seems exactly like something Mellie would do.

Sure, our three theories could totally be off base — or at worse, all of them are somehow in on it together — which is why there's a perfectly good comments section below for you to share your theories on who was behind Fitz's assassination.

Scandal returns Thursday, Jan. 10 at 10/9c on ABC.
