Scandal Preview: The Truth Is Out There….

by Clarissa / September 25, 2015

Olivia and Fitz’s relationship was exposed in the season 5 premiere of Scandal, much to their horror. After spending most of the first episode trying to adjust to the fact that they can now be together, Olivia suggested that they still keep their relationship under wraps until they’re prepared for the public scrutiny. Unfortunately, that choice was taken from them when Sally exposed the affair to the world.

What’s to come next? Well, an absolute media s**t-storm, to be quite frank. And ABC has small teasers for the next two episodes, which will include Fitz’s determination to figure out who is behind the leak.

Episode 5.02 “Yes” (October 1): “The Pope and Associates team dives into a new case that takes Olivia out of D.C. and away from the President. Meanwhile, back at the White House, Fitz is determined to find who’s responsible for causing the latest turn of events, and Abby receives unexpected guidance from a master of damage control as she struggles to catch a break.”

Episode 5.03 “Paris is Burning” (October 8): ” Olivia and Fitz face some very big consequences and Mellie brings in an old friend to make sure she gets her way. Meanwhile, Abby shows Olivia she is fully capable of handling working at the White House.”

Don’t miss new episodes of Scandal on Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
