Much secrecy has (as is tradition) surrounded the new season of Scandal (arriving Thursday at 10/9c) — yet, somewhat amazingly, ABC has let loose with sneak peeks from a couple of the premiere’s more “interesting” moments.
When last we tuned in, Olivia had been ambushed by the press, after apparently being outed as President Grant’s mistress. Luckily, she was ushered quickly into a nearby car, where B613 boss man Rowan — aka “Dad?!” — was waiting for his little girl.
In this first clip, Olivia shoots down Dad’s plan to “fix” her mess, shedding a sliver of light on family history in the process.
Next, you’ve got Cyrus tempting hubby James with “scoop” (god bless him) in trade for intel on whomever might have leaked Olivia’s name to the hounds.
Lastly, Olivia takes — well, forces — a tete-a-tete with the leader of the free world, so that together they might handle their scandal. But did Liv cross a line in “pulling the fire alarm” to get this alone time?
