Episode 13, titled No More Blood will reveal who was the actual bidder for Olivia, after Gus killed Ian and took over the auction.
In the previous episode, Kerry Washington's character had become an "object for auction", as Ian put her up for sale on a ghost website.
However, even before he could help Olivia chose her bidder, Ian is shot dead by the psychotic henchman Gus, who takes over the auction and reveals that Olivia's finale bidder was from Iran and soon she will be handed over to the bidder in Iran.
The promo of episode 13 shows Olivia being moved to a secret location, before she's dragged out of a car in the middle of the desert. As her face cover is removed and Olivia looks at her captors she seems more surprised than scared.
