It’s been six months since Olivia and Fitz broke up when SCANDAL returns from its winter hiatus and there’s some new developments. Olivia has a new client (the head of the NSA), Mellie is trying to get Olivia to run her presidential campaign and coming out with a new book, and Rowan is having a nice dinner with his daughter and confronting her about giving up the power of the Oval Office when she walked away from Fitz. According to him, “you’ve tasted blood. You know what it’s like. You want it.”
In other words, Rowan is basically insinuating that Olivia has tasted power and wants more. But will she herself run in order to get it? And could that put her at odds with Mellie? Or will she help Mellie in order to attach herself to the next president?
Don’t miss the return of SCANDAL tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
