SCANDAL Season 6 Premiere Photos: The Election Results are In!

The season 5 finale of SCANDAL left fans with one big question — who is going to be the next President of the United States? In the finale, both Mellie and Francisco Vargas (her opponent) had chosen their running mates. Vargas had selected Cyrus, who seems eager to return to the White House, while Mellie….well, Mellie’s running mate was actually chosen for her: Jake.

But who will ultimately win the election? That will be revealed in the upcoming sixth season premiere of SCANDAL. ABC has said that the election results will be announced and “the shocking results lead to an explosive outcome”. Place your bets on what that could mean. Meanwhile, photos from the upcoming season premiere also show Fitz dealing with a crisis. After all, he’s still the President for another several months.
