Olivia Pope is back! ABC released the first, highly-anticipated promo for its hit drama Scandal, and although it doesn’t reveal much, we definitely see Kerry Washington’s Emmy-nominated character in action.
This time around, Olivia is in the spotlight, as news of her relationship with the President goes public. In the 30-second clip, we see our favorite fixer trying to gain back control of her life and the media, but it looks like her team isn’t exactly on the same page. “What did you do?!” she yells at them in the end of the promo.
Surprisingly, there’s no mention of the shocking Season 2 cliffhanger, where Olivia comes face to face with the man who’s been trying to ruin her relationship with the President…and it turns out that man is her own father! However, show creator Shonda Rhimes has said that Olivia’s relationship with dear ol’ dad will definitely play a major part of Season 3.
Scandal returns on Thurs., Oct. 3.
