The season three premiere of the ABC drama "Scandal" provided more questions than answers about Olivia Pope and what the future holds for her and Fitz. On Friday, October 4 Hollywood Life posted a new sneak peek from the second episode of season three, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," reveals that Olivia will be cleaning up a scandal that she caused.
The thirty second promo features Olivia Pope & Associates taking on Jeannine Locke as a client after she was named as the new mistress for President Grant. Olivia knows that her team framed the White House aide to protect her, so the press did not learn the truth about the affair. The infamous phone conversations between Fitz and Olivia seem to start up again, but they could both be talking to Cyrus.
There are glimpses of what looks like a hospital operating room and someone seems to be trying to intimidate Jeannine. Olivia tells the press she knows Jeannine is innocent and will prove it, and wants to the people who set her up to pay. It's possible the mysterious folder that Cyrus saw at the end of the premiere episode about Fitz and Jake Ballard's army days.
Earlier this week, Wetpaint Entertainment posted the synopsis for the new episode which is listed below.
Olivia’s past comes back to haunt her on Scandal: Through flashbacks we learn more about Olivia’s estranged relationship with her father. Meanwhile, both the White House and Pope & Associates are still in the middle of cleaning up the very big and very public mess they created.
The synopsis hints that this episode will include flashbacks so fans will probably learn more about how the father daughter relationship got to be the way it is. Olivia and the White House have been at odds before so get ready for even more drama! "Scandal" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
