Scandal Season 3 Scoop and Spoiler Alerts 16 comments

Scandal is back tonight on ABC at 10/9 CST. 

Are you ready?

Of course, you are. You have been waiting all Summer! 


To help you get in gear (like you need any help), let’s recap a few things from Scandal‘s Season 2 Finale…

  • Olivia and President Fitz broke things off for the 100th time
  • Fitz literally crawled back to his First Lady Mellie afterward
  • Jake was thrown in the hole like Huck by B613
  • Olivia tried to go for a run and was greeted by a swarm of news reporters asking about her affair with Fitz
  • Then Olivia was swept into a limousine where she came face-to-face with Rowan, head of B613, and… 

…uttered the word heard
’round the world


And then the world reacted like this…



A few months ago in an earlier post on TV show scoop, I shared that Scott Foley, who plays Jake Ballard, will be a series regular this season. 

Will he spend the entire time in that hole? Or get out and hook up with Olivia again?

Scandal Creator Shonda Rhimes gave a revealing interview to The Hollywood Reporter along with Bellamy Young (Mellie), Tony Goldwyn (Fitz), and Olivia Pope herself–Kerry Washington.

Here is the scoop they shared about the new season…

  • Only 22 minutes will have passed since the end of Season 2 and the beginning of Season 3.
  • Viewers will learn who outed Olivia as Fitz’s mistress in the first episode.
  • Olivia’s team of Gladiators will question whether or not they are on board with fixing the fallout of the affair.
  • Joe Morton, who plays Byron Rowan aka Olivia Pope’s daddy, will be a recurring character during Season 3. 
  • Olivia’s past will be exposed and the details will be shocking.
  • A tsunami will hit town and flood The White House.
  • Season 3 will be filled with flashbacks–some giving us the 411 on Harrison’s past. 

I ask you again…ARE YOU READY?

    I watched this Friday about 24 hours later. I was about to be disappointed in the whole thing until I saw who their client was at the end. Then I was excited again. I was sad that Jake wasn't out of the whole. I can't wait to see him again 😉

    I only scanned down to the comments with one eye closed. Can you believe I couldn't stay up. I was ZAPPED. I told you I give myself one show a season and look what I do. It's tivoed though. So I can't even get on facebook or twitter until I've looked at it. I came over to your rigged recipes to make a grocery list.

      Thank goodness for DVR because my child is going to try to ask me 52 questions while I'm watching it. He doesn't have school tomorrow so he is going to be wide open. I guarantee!

    OMG I can not wait! I was saying since Rowan appeared that he was Olivia's daddy and I was oh so RIGHT! I can't wait to hear more of Harrison's story, and part of me feels like he and Olivia related is some kind of way. Maybe brother and sister? We'll see! I know one thing! I can't wait unitl 10:00 PM tonight!

      You called it about Rowan? Really?! I think Harrison and Olivia are probably related too. I can't wait for it to come on tonight too, Britton! I'll be linking up on My Big, Beautiful, Life tomorrow for your Fave Friday Link Up.
