Gladiators are chomping at the bit for the premiere of season three of "Scandal". At the end of last season, main character Olivia Pope was revealed to be the President's mistress and in an even bigger shock, the head of B-613 was revealed to be her father. After a long summer of waiting, fans are getting a sneak peek into the mess surrounding Olivia and the President's affair.
In the short trailer that ABC released, Cyrus is seen ask for a kill folder to be set up for Olivia, Mellie is out for blood and Olivia is shown being furious with her team. The storylines surrounding next season are being kept tightly secured in true Shonda Rhimes fashion. One of the questions being asked is who exactly revealed the affair? The question could possibly turn into one of the season long mysteries that make the series so successful. Last season the big mysteries were who shot the President and who was the mole? Both mysteries served as mid season finale and season finale plot lines.
In other "Scandal" news, fan favorite Scott Foley's character Captain Jake Ballard was upgraded to series regular and "Friends" alum Lisa Kudrow was just announced as having a recurring role this season.
