The news of Olivia and Fitz’s affair exploded in the last episode of SCANDAL and Olivia fled D.C. to work a case in order to escape the scrutiny that came with being the President’s mistress. As Abby tried to get a handle on the situation, she decided to downplay the affair and told the press that Fitz and Mellie’s marriage was still solid. And then she told the President that she didn’t believe Olivia would want to live this life, so Fitz invited Mellie back to the White House and decided to keep his affair a secret once again.
But, shockingly, Olivia decided to face her fears and admitted to about 10 million reporters that she was, in fact, the President’s mistress. At the same time, Fitz and Mellie were preparing for an interview to play up their sham of a marriage and deny any existence of an affair.
Now ABC has released a sneak peek for next week’s episode that shows Abby desperately trying to find the President. Has she gotten wind of Olivia’s statement and is shutting down the First Couple’s interview so she doesn’t turn Olivia into a liar? We’ll have to wait until next week to find out!
Don’t miss an all new episode of SCANDAL on October 15 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
