In the words of Kevin Hart, “It’s about to go down.”
Although the new season’s premiere isn’t until October 3rd, I suppose ABC felt that it was time to hit Scandal fans off with a quick fix of that heart-pounding Shonda Rhimes drama that many of us have grown to know and love. The network recently dropped a 32-second teaser, through which Gladiators are offered a very brief glimpse into the drama that awaits in season three.
All hell is about to break loose.
If you recall, season two ended with someone dropping dime to the press about Olivia’s affair with President Fitz and it appears that season three will be picking up right in the midst off all of that drama. The new trailer opens with Fitz unapologetically saying, “I’m in love with a woman who is not my wife.” Then, the video quickly cuts to one of the final scenes from season two, where Olivia opens her apartment building’s door and is greeted by a sea of pushy reporters.
“My name is out there! We need to make a plan,” she tells Fitz in another scene.
Of course, First Lady Mellie Grant is still up to her old politically calculating tricks.
“I will pull out our laundry and I will share it with the world!” she tells Fitz in her “When a Woman’s Fed Up” voice.
The true shocker, however, is Cyrus, who orders his people to “start a kill folder on Olivia Pope.” Whatever that means, it doesn’t sound like anything good.
October 3rd can’t get here quickly enough!
