Even though Scandal has been gone for the summer, it sure feels like a lifetime since we have seen Olivia, her Gladiators, Fitz, Cyrus, and Mellie. Well thankfully, the countdown is almost done and America’s most scandalous drama is back on September 24th for TGIT (Thank Goodness It’s Thursday)! When we last left the show, Fitz fired Cyrus, had thrown Mellie out of The White House, and was proudly making out with Olivia on the balcony. Let’s also not forget Olivia finally one upped Rowan (aka Papa Pope) and had him locked away. Well the fifth season of the show looks to have a surprising development as Fitz FINALLY tells Mellie he is divorcing her!
Mellie and Fitz have had quite a run, and their relationship is more of a working one than a romantic one. Still it is bittersweet. No matter how much we want Olivia and Fitz together, a marriage is still ending. Mellie, more than anyone, has sacrificed a lot to get him into the Oval Office. As you recall she was raped by his father, Big Jerry and for years thought her eldest son was a product of that only to discover he really belonged to Fitz. Nevertheless, nothing is easy ever easy on this show; especially love. Olivia and Fitz are going to fight to safely go public with their relationship. We wonder how she is going to “Pope” this situation! In a mere two weeks we will learn how! Check out the trailer below.
