After one long summer hiatus... Scandal. Is. Back.
Expect Olivia, Fitz, and the whole crew to be in full on crisis mode as they try and navigate their way through last season's cliffhanger: Pope-gate. (Ok I made that name up but its implications are far from make believe for the Presidency of Fitzgerald Grant.)
Someone has leaked to the press that Olivia and Fitz are getting it on--and good gossip like that won't just go away with the next news cycle. I can't wait to see how Cyrus and Harrison put that genie back in the bottle.
There's also the issue of "Dad." You remember him--the seemingly all-knowing figure that ran Cyrus, ordered a naval officer to sleep with his own daughter and threw Jake into the Huck-hole. Yeah, that guy. Olivia's dad just might rival Mellie's parenting skills.
And we can't forget about our First Couple. The last image of Fitz doing the "Mellie-crawl" into her lap after Olivia dropped him like a bad habit (pun absolutely intended) will forever be etched in my memory.
But history tells us that unlike Mellie's devotion to their life, Fitz's relapses are usually short lived.
Lots to get to in Thursday's Season 3 premiere! What are you most excited for?
Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC 15.
