If you’re anything like us girls in the office, you have to watch “Scandal” at least two good times to figure out what the heck really happened in any given episode. Sure, you can get the gist of the weekly drama Thursday night’s at 10 pm, but if you’re going to pick up on all the character nuances and understand how the gladiators in suits dotted every “I” and crossed every “T,” you’re going to have to set the DVR and concentrate.
Thankfully, it seems ABC knows this too because the network has decided to air a Scandal Recap special before the season 3 premiere October 3. Bless their hearts. According to Shadow and Act:
Titled Scandal: The Secret Is Out, the the special will begin that October 3 night at 8/7c, and will be followed by the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy at 9/8c, ending with the 3rd season debut of Scandal at 10/9c.
Thank.You. ABC. Although I do have a bit of a bone to pick — why couldn’t Grey’s be moved up one hour just for this night so that we could all watch the recap special and then watch the season 3 premiere immediately after? The network knows how thirsty we are for Olivia Pope-Fitz drama. What are we supposed to do during that hour break — no disrespect to Grey’s fans — wouldn’t it would be so much better to give us the mini marathon we’ve dreamed of??
OK I’m done. The real question is how in the world are Shonda Rhimes and ‘dem going to fit two entire seasons of “fixing” into one one-hour special. Time for ol’ girl to work her magic again, I see. We will definitely be checking this Scandal Recap Special out. Same for you?
