Olivia Pope and the rest of the gladiators in suits will return for the third season of "Scandal" on ABC in October. On Thursday, September 26 Entertainment Weekly posted an exclusive sneak peek for the upcoming premiere which features Olivia and Fitz meeting for the first time since the scandal broke. The first episode, "It's Handled" will air on Thursday, October 3 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
The one and a half minute clip features a calm and collected Olivia walking down a hallway with military personnel. She is let into a secure area and President Grant is already in the room. They argue about how difficult it was to meet in secret and Fitz is angry with her for the meeting. They decide they need to develop a plan to deal with the aftermath of Olivia's name being released to the media as his mistress.
Olivia decides they need help with the plan to deal with the fallout, and Fitz thinks Cyrus is involved. However, someone else walks through the door to join the meeting: Mellie. Just like in the first season of the hit show, the two women will help come up with a plan to save the presidency for Fitz and keep Olivia's reputation intact.
